  • Man Utd fans wrong to write off Van Persie and Januzaj despite concerns

    ESPN FC News
    22 Oct 2014 | 4:45 am
    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal still thinks his team can win the Premier League despite being ten points behind Premier League leaders, Chelsea. When Manchester United were first linked with signing Robin van Persie from Arsenal in the summer of 2012, the fans were fairly dismissive. United very rarely signed players who were already at their peak, so Van Persie -- having won the Golden Boot in the previous season as well as being named the PFA and FWA Player of the Year -- certainly wasn't their usual type. Having just lost the title on goal difference to Manchester City,…

    For all the worrywarts out there, (and let’s be honest there a few in red shirts at the moment) at this stage last year  (when David Moyes was in charge) United had 7 points, this time round Van Gaal has only five. Now, last year, every fan would tell you that seven points at that stage in the season was a terrible start, in fact, it was a blooming nightmare start for United. One that David Moyes never truly recovered from. But, what of van Gaal’s start to the season? If last year’s start was a nightmare, what will the fans make of this atrocious start to a season? In actual fact, just…

      In 2009 Real Madrid came to Anfield with a team featuring Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Fabio Cannavaro, Arjen Robben and Raul and were soundly beaten 4-0. Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard put on a masterclass that evening as one of world football’s most decorated club sides were humiliated. A repeat is unlikely as Real prepare for their latest trip to Liverpool with a side featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema. But how different are the Liverpool sides of then and now and which one is better? Have your vote below.   The post Poll…

      Real Madrid versus Barcelona is always a special occasion and the latest showdown between the two superpowers should prove no different. Barcelona sit top of La Liga after making an unbeaten start to the season while Cristiano Ronaldo has just broken a Spanish domestic record by scoring 15 goals in the first eight league games of the campaign. Oh, and there’s the small matter of Luis Suarez making his long-awaited Barca bow.

    Barcelona forward Luis Suarez has revealed that he is enjoying his debut season at Camp Nou and express his desire to stay at the club forever despite not yet making his official appearances for the Catalan side, reports the Daily Mail. #457535988 / gettyimages.com The 27-year-old joined Barcelona from the Premier League outfit Liverpool this summer, but has not yet featured for La Blaugrana due to a four-month suspension ban for biting incident at the 2014 World Cup. “I’m fulfilling the dream of playing for the club I always wanted to play for,” the Uruguay international…

  • Cristiano Ronaldo's form covers Real Madrid's issues -- Steve McManaman

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:41 am
    ESPN FC's Sid Lowe questions whether it is possible to make Cristiano Ronaldo anymore determined to win than he already is. Former Real Madrid winger Steve McManaman believes the current European champions have been weakened by the sale of Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso but says the current form of Cristiano Ronaldo can offset the losses. Di Maria was named man of the match in los Blancos' Champions League final win vs. Atletico Madrid in May but left the Bernabeu for Manchester United in August. Alonso, meanwhile, joined Bayern Munich and McManaman says that the signings of Toni…

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:35 am
    Barcelona manager Luis Enrique was pleased with their performance in the 3-1 win over Ajax in the UEFA Champions League. Barcelona may have been founded in 1899, but it isn't unreasonable to say that the Barca the world knows was only really born when the Dutch first landed at the club. Rinus Michels, Louis van Gaal, Frank Rijkaard and above all, Johan Cruyff left lasting marks on the club over the course of four decades, planting a seed from their own Northern European football culture on the Iberian Peninsula then nurturing it with care. It is all too tempting to read Barca's…

Saturday's nervy 1-0 win against promoted Leicester City at St James' Park, was the first victory in eight league games this season for 18th-placed Newcastle.

  • Arsenal fan (whose had a few!) calls for ‘Wenger Out’ after Anderlecht win [Video]

    Paul
    22 Oct 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Arsenal Fan TV were in Brussels tonight to see the Gunners pull off a late great escape by beating Anderlecht with two injury time goals.Despite the win, which sets them up nicely to qualify and possibly still even top the group, many Arsenal fans around the ground refused to lulled into a false sense of security just because they won, as they were far from happy with the overall performance over the 90 minutes.This Arsenal fan interviewed – who’d clearly had a few during the game – said he’s never been a ‘Wenger Out’ type, but that tonight’s weak…

    Mario Balotelli provoked the ire not just of Liverpool fans, but of most neutral observers tonight when he swapped shirts at half-time, a ritual normally reserved for full-time, when pleasantries like this can be exchanged.Brendan Rodgers said he didn’t actually know about it, and that this wasn’t the reason he took him off at half-time, but that he’s not a fan, saying ‘We don’t do that at this club, I’ll talk to him tomorrow’.Rodgers admitted it’s the second time it’s happened, a similar incident having occurred last year, so he’s…

    By hook or by crook, Arsenal rescued a victory from the claws of defeat tonight, with two late goals earning them 3 valuable Champions League points.Birthday boy Arsene Wenger cut a relieved figure post-match, but intimated that his Arsenal side were deserved winners over Anderlecht tonight.Wenger lamented how open they were at the back when they decided to come out and attack in the 2nd half, which was a cause of the goal they conceded, but he hailed the side’s will and determination to get the result they needed:‘We had spirit and refused to love the game.’

    Kieran Gibbs was one of Arsenal’s heroes tonight, as the full-back got the comeback in motion with the first goal in the 89th minute.That was followed up by Podolski’s winner, which completed the late dramatic turnaround, and Gibbs said that their show of character was a real statement to the rest of Europe.The full-back said he felt they deserved to win the game, and controlled and dominated for large parts, and that it was just their final ball that let them down.

    Yesterday was certainly a wild ride for those covering Major League Soccer. Almost out of no where in the middle of the afternoon a media alert lands in my inbox telling me of a press conference being called for only a couple hours later with Commissioner Don Garber. The call was purely about him discussing the comments made recently by Jurgen Klinsmann regarding the status of the league. I’ve never heard Garber so frustrated or annoyed about any particular comment/idea/concept/etc before. But man, on first listen it felt like Garber woke up on the wrong side of the bed yesterday and…

    On Monday the news broke that Chivas USA could indeed be going on a hiatus for at least two years. ESPNFC reported the updated news that a new owner is buying the club for $100 million dollars. But even with all the hiatus talk, it left with more questions than answers. I’ll do my best to answer them as much as I possible can here. I’m sure I am leaving out a ton of other questions but these seem to be the bigger ones in my head at the moment. 1. What will happen to the current roster? If anything this current roster will likely get blown up in a way along with the team. This…

    Here's a partial transcript of the media questions for LD on Tuesday about his farewell international match. I didn't post them earlier because I didn't want to put out quotes that people needed to write their articles, but most of these have now been published. Landon talked for a while longer, so I might post that later. Landon is, as usual, very candid, which is why I tend to trust his honesty over people who dodge press questions. Incidentally, I did not ask any of these questions. I asked a few towards the end.  What are your emotions before the game? Emotions? I'm…

    Andres Iniesta has always seemed to be one of the athletes who simply doesn't look much like an athlete. He could pass for a professor, doctor, or computer programmer, rather than one of the world's elite in his sport. Now his generation of Barcelona players is fading a bit, and the dynamic pairing of Xavi and Iniesta in midfield isn't what it once was. Time does that. Apparently, Iniesta has interests off the field as well. Check out his cooking class!

    In a week in which Mexico had to confront racism in the homefront after local Queretaro politician Carlos Trevino called new signing Ronaldinho an “ape”, the performance of the players on the field became almost an afterthought. Queretaro, to the club’s credit, swiftly denounced Trevino’s churlish statements that he made on his Facebook page, posted partly because he was angry about the traffic caused by the presentation ceremony of the Brazilian star. Though the club called for Trevino to be punished for his prejudicial commentary on social media, all that appears to have…

Sometimes decisions don’t go in your favor. Life is like that. But it’s still frustrating, and it hurts a lot. What did Jurgen say to you, what were his reasons?

    Champions League action tonight as we take on Anderlecht. Having lost to Dortmund and then pulverised Galatasaray, this is a game from which we’ll be looking to take three points. Anderlecht are, on paper, the weakest team in the group, but you suspect they’ll be looking at us and thinking it might just be a good time to play Arsenal. We have issues at the back with Wojciech Szczesny suspended and David Ospina now gone from injured to crocked for three months (more on that anon). It means a first European start for 22 year old Emi Martinez and it’s going to be quite the leap…

There’ll be the usual press conference ahead of the Champions League game with Anderlecht, and we should get the latest team news.

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:03 pm
    With the football world celebrating ten years since Arsenal became “Invincible,” it was interesting how chatter quickly veered away from the amazing technical accuracy the team played with, to discussion about leaders. That’s because, having begun during the international break, with no comparable action of note, nostalgia was suddenly forced to merge with real life as new Arsenal were set to host Hull City. Looking at it that way, it’s easy to jump to conclusions about how far away this Arsenal side is in terms of leadership. Looking back, certainly the Invincibles did comprise of…

An angry San Simon member of staff could not contain his frustration after seeing his side concede a 96th minute goal which condemned them to a 3-2 defeat against Sporting Cristal.

    Whoever else was to blame for Manchester United's recent decline, one thing we know for sure: Sir Alex Ferguson doesn't believe it was his fault. Sir Alex Ferguson has produced an updated edition of his autobiography, in which he discusses the the David Moyes tumultuous 9-month reign as his successor at Manchester United. Moyes inherited a Manchester United team that won the Premier League by an 11-point margin the previous year, but left the club within a season with the club languishing seventh in the table. Fingers have been pointed at Ferguson for his failure to renew…

    “I never realized that to be a jockey you had to be a horse first”. One of the most famous quotes in the history of soccer came from a man under intense pressure from the Italian media. Having never played football as a professional player, Arrigo Sacchi’s ability to manage a team trying to reach the pinnacle of European football was in scrutiny. Having beaten AC Milan twice with Parma, Sacchi had been handpicked by Silvio Berlusconi, who attempted to revolutionize Milan with new signings after buying the club. Early results were far from promising, but once Milan got into form,…

The past few seasons have been turbulent at White Hart Lane, thanks in no small part to the club’s frantic search for a return to the Champions League. Harry Redknapp departed little more than a year on from taking Spurs to the quarter-final stage of the competition, while successors Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood paid for their inability to secure qualification.

Ronaldo netted the goal in the 23rd minute at Anfield to score his first-ever goal at the stadium. With Liverpool looking more threatening in the first 20 minutes, Real Madrid’s goal was against the run of play, but who other than Cristiano Ronaldo would score the goal to open up the scoring?

Kieran Gibbs scored in the 89th minute after a inch-perfect cross by Calum Chambers. Gibbs slotted the ball into the back of the net to save embarrassment. But Arsenal created a shock of its own after Lukas Podolski scored a goal in injury time after some poor defending from Anderlecht. The 3 points were the perfect birthday surprise for Wenger.

The former Argentina international has shone during his time in Serie A, scoring an incredible 31 league goals in his first season at Juve, before opening this new campaign with six goals in his first five appearances of the year. With a number of clubs rumoured to be keen on signing the 30-year-old, it looks as though Juve will look to tie Tevez down to a new deal in order to cool that inter

    It was a crushing group stage exit for Italy as they were defeated 1-0 by Uruguay at the Estádio das Dunas. After a promising start, beating England 2-1 on Saturday 14th June, things went downhill for Italy as they conceded a fatal goal against Costa Rica the following Friday. The team finished third in Group D and left Brazil hanging their heads in shame. This is a stark contrast from a team that has won a World Cup this century, having clinched the Jules Rimet trophy in 2006. As Germany leave Brazil this week with the coveted prize in their hand, th

But, as is usually the case, some players will stand head and shoulders above their teammates. In 2006 it was Fabio Cannavaro and Gianluigi Buffon, Paolo Rossi in 1982 and, in the pre-war triumphs, the likes of Silvio Piola and Raimundo Orsi. Today’s vintage can write their names in history as did their predecessors, and there some likely candidates among Cesare Prandelli’s 23-man squad.

    It’s a positive, isn’t it?

No doubt paying that fine would have been cited as a reason that the club don’t have as much money to spend in the transfer window as everyone thinks so I guess it’s a huge thanks to Mickey P and his crew for that one; I hope you like the watches I’ve sent you.

The sense of relief is palpable, the eruption it brings is more guttural, visceral. And yet, in a match such as yesterday, against opposition – with all due respect to Hull – that you expect a top four team to win against, the goal doesn’t quite succeed in lifting the pall of defeat.

    Barça will head to Madrid full of confidence after Ajax's hopelessly open setup led to their best attacking display of the season so far. Barcelona’s 3-1 victory over Ajax was just what Luis Enrique needed: a good performance after a defeat in the last Champions League game and before a vitally important Clásico. From a tactical point of view, Ajax were the perfect opposition here: a side as wedded to an offensive strategy as Barça but one that cannot really compete in terms of physical, mental or technical quality. Although Frank De Boer’s team did their best to contain Lionel Messi,…

With the Blues unbeaten this season, there has been talk they could emulate the achievements of the Arsenal Invincibles, but Rafael believes United could spring a surprise on Sunday. “Everyone is beatable. We have to do our best, of course. They are playing well. We’re playing at Old Trafford though and we’ve been getting results…
  • Osman and Naismith missing for Everton

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:43 am
    The duo did not travel with the rest of the squad on Wednesday due to injury, but there was some positive news for Roberto Martinez with defender Sylvain Distin available. Ross Barkley came through his first match of the season at the weekend and he is likely to be feature in France, while Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy also made the trip having missed the last Europa League away game against Krasnodar. As well as Naismith and Osman, the Toffees will be without Bryan Oviedo, Arouna Kone, Kevin Mirallas and John Stones as the look to maintain their unbeaten start in Group H.
  • Poyet denies Coates injury claims

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:50 am
    Coates has managed just 45 minutes for the Black Cats since joining on a season-long loan from Liverpool with his last appearance coming in the Capital One Cup loss to Stoke. His prolonged absence is the result of a thigh muscle injury, but Poyet insists Uruguayan defender was very impressive during his first few days at the club, dismissing suggestions that the issue came to light during his medical. "I think the problem with Seba is what the injury is," Poyet explained in the Sunderland Echo. "It’s something very unique in a part of muscle which is under another muscle. "He was fit when…
  • Pardew: It has been tough

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:48 am
    Newcastle find themselves in the bottom three of the Premier League after managing just one victory in their first eight games. Their poor form stretches back to last season with the Magpies winning only six of their 27 league games in 2014, but a much-needed victory over Leicester has eased the pressure on Pardew. Fans have repeatedly called for Pardew to be show the door and, while the 53-year-old has found it tough, he fully understands their frustrations. “I’m not going to pretend it hasn’t been tough,” Pardew told the Shields Gazette. “It has been very, very tough to look our…

    22 Oct 2014 | 2:37 am
    Moyes was labelled 'The Chosen One' when he was appointed as Ferguson's successor in May 2013, but he failed to live up to expectations and was eventually sacked after just ten months in charge. United struggled under Moyes and a dismal season ended with the club missing out on European football and Ferguson believes the pressure of managing the Premier League champions proved too much for his fellow Scot. "He hadn't realised just how big United is as a club. As the results deteriorated each defeat was a hammer blow to him. I could see that in his demeanour," Ferguson wrote in his updated…

  • LIVERPOOL FACE DAUNTING TASK AT ANFIELD

    21 Oct 2014 | 4:33 pm
    Liverpool face a mammoth task in the Champion's League this evening when they face the might of Spain's Real Madrid at Anfield. Madrid are scoring goals for fun under Carlo Anchellotti  with 5-0 wins aplenty. Cristiano Ronaldo is leading the way with 15 goals in seven games already this Season, while Liverpool have only kept one clean sheet (against Spurs) this term.After Sunday's calamitous defending where QPR lost 3-2 despite leading twice, Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren have, as usual, said that Liverpool must defend better.Its all beginning to sound a bit hollow.With Mario…

    Liverpool can count themselves mighty fortunate to have earned all three points at Loftus Road on Sunday.Playing Emre Can in the holding role with Steven Gerrard upfront in the 1st half was a foolhardy decision by Brendan Rodgers and a better side would have beaten us out of sight before half-time.Yet, Liverpool managed to win in a Kamikaze-like way at the end with two own goals by Dunne & Caulker to hand us a fortuitous victory that has sent us back into joint 4th in the League.Player Ratings;Mignolet: 5/10.  Made some important saves, distribution very poor again.Glen Johnson…

  • Why Balotelli needs to be dropped to save Liverpool’s season

    Liverpool Football Blog
    19 Oct 2014 | 6:55 pm
    Liverpool’s win against QPR was probably the luckiest result in the history of Premier League football. Maybe even in any league around the world. The Reds literally couldn’t have done more to lose that game if they had tried and were only saved by the brilliance of Phil Coutinho and two comical own goals by Richard Dunne and Steven Caulker. The contrast between Liverpool’s fast, energetic starts last season and their slow, lethargic ones this season are like night and day. There is one player who is more to blame than any other in the Liverpool side and that is Mario…
  • Liverpool QPR: 4 things the Reds need to do to avoid a slip up

    Liverpool face rock bottom QPR at Loftus Road this Sunday and they will be hoping to get their stuttering season off to a gallop after a difficult first few weeks. Here are four things the Reds need to do to avoid this potential banana peel. 1. Focus on the Madrid game second Real Madrid in the Champions League is a huge game at Anfield in a long time but the Reds need to focus on the task at hand first. It’s easy to underestimate opposition and in the Premier League anything can happen. QPR might be in abysmal form but Liverpool haven’t exactly been crash hot either so Rodgers…
  • Liverpool transfer news: Reds in for £10 million ‘monster’ this January

    15 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    With Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert all failing to score goals for Liverpool so far this season reports are emerging that Brendan Rodgers is looking to bolster his attacking options in January. Rickie Lambert went from scoring 34 from 34 penalties to missing his opening penalty from Liverpool. Since then he has offered very little going forward. Borini has not been able to replicate his form for Sunderland from last season, although his playing time has been limited. Balotelli has perhaps been the biggest disappointment with no Premier League goals in 5 appearances. Fans…

    In his first season at Liverpool Brendan Rodgers quite famously said: If you are better than your opponent with the ball you have a 79 per cent chance of winning the game. For me it is quite logical. It doesn’t matter how big or small you are, if you don’t have the ball you can’t score. It’s something that has intrigued me for a while so I dug into some data to find out whether it was really true. I analysed 15 matches, the final 8 from last season and the 7 matches we have played so far and the results were interesting. Over the course of these 15 matches Liverpool won 7 games…
  • Is this goalkeeper on his way to replace Mignolet?

    Liverpool Football Blog
    8 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    Simon Mignolet began his career at Liverpool in the best possible way when he signed for Liverpool. The Belgian keeper saved a penalty to get the Red’s incredible 2013-14 season underway with a win. His form began to dip in the second half of the season, although he was not exactly helped by a weak defense in front of him. Despite numerous defensive reinforcements our number 1 hasn’t improved his form and there is strong suggestion Victor Valdes is set to join Liverpool as a free agent. Metro and Goal have both reported Valdes is set to undergo a medical during the international…

    Communication is key in any sport, especially team ones such as rugby and football, where the success of the club depends on effective management of large pools of talent. Keeping track of the well-being, health and fitness of each individual player is essential to manage your resources and ensure that the group on the pitch is able to get the best results. It can also help you to avoid injury, overrunning certain players in the build up to important events, and overseeing opportunities as they arise.   Face-to-Face Communication Whether you are training or giving the team a talk during…

  • Welbeck Rewards Wenger’s £16 million Faith with Hat-trick

    Sean Charles
    7 Oct 2014 | 7:49 am
    Danny Welbeck came through the ranks at Manchester United under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson. So, it would be fair to assume that the 23-year-old was special just like the crop of stars like David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, and Paul Scholes who had preceded him. Welbeck, though, failed to live up to the expectations that were once placed upon him as a youth team product from United. Even Ferguson did not see him as a first choice centre forward even with his abundant qualities like pace and power. Betfair places Welbeck at a distant 33/1 to win the Golden Boot award this season.

    I’m not sure how big a story this has been around the world, but next month Scotland is voting to decide whether or not they should become an independent country for the first time since 1707. Scottish nationalism may be very high at the time voters go to the polls. Glasgow has just successfully hosted the Commonwealth Games, in which the UK countries compete as separate nations, and the Ryder Cup will soon be held at Gleneagles. Opinion polls seem to suggest that, at the moment, Scotland will stay in the UK, but let’s say hypothetically that the ‘yes’ campaign is successful and…

    Sadly, the end of what has been an entertaining Premier League season is now upon us, and writers everywhere are picking their teams of the season, so I thought I’d do the same. The problem I have with many of these teams is that, most of the time, it’s pretty obvious who will be in them and as a result, they don’t vary much from writer to writer. That’s not very interesting to me; and I’m sure none of you reading this need me to tell you how good a season Luis Suarez, Eden Hazard or Yaya Toure have had. So, I try and do things a little differently. I pick my team solely out of…

Since Frank Lampard’s departure, Chelsea hasn’t had a permanent free kick taker. Fabregas, Schurrle and Hazard have taken turns since the beginning of the season without much success.

    Originally posted on Top-soccer.com The news that Southampton had signed Pelle last summer was greeted with mild amusement in some quarters. This was in no way detrimental to the Italian striker Graziano Pelle but more in deference to the legendary Pele, widely acknowledged as the greatest footballer of all time. As the Premier League season gathers pace, the name Pelle is popping up with ever-increasing frequency in the sports pages.

England’s 1966 World Cup win now serves merely as a painful reminder as to how long it has been since they truly ruled world football.

A 2-2 draw at Swansea left the Magpies languishing in the relegation zone with hardly any change following their defeat to Stoke.

The 36-year-old did not have his contract renewed at the end of last season and he signed for New York City on a two-year-deal. They just happen to be the sister club of Premiership champions Manchester City and a subsequent six-month loan deal was quickly agreed to take Lampard to the Etihad.

Yobo who is currently a free agent after he was released by Fernebache this summer was reported early last week to be close to a move to Arsenal. “I read Arsenal was interested in me; it was news to me,” Yobo said “If negotiations are taking place, I am not aware. Maybe the club is talking with my agent. “There is no formal contact with anybody. I know Arsene Wenger admires me a lot and wanted me to replace Sol Campbell some years ago, but Everton blocked the move.

    An enthralling matchday three concludes, bringing to an end two days of tantalising football filled with absolute shocks, records smashed and goals, goals and more goals. Here are five things we learnt from matchday three. Goals the order of the day 40 goals were scored on the first day of matchday three, setting a new record in the process for the most goals on a single night of action. The biggest contributors to that astounding figure was Chelsea who routed Maribor 6-0, Bayern Munich humiliating Roma 7-1 in the eternal city while Shakhtar Donetsk defeated BATE Borisov 7-0.

    As with all the best bar debates, there are as many cons as pros and – come next summer – from a tangled web of moral and professional obligation, Gareth Southgate will attempt to liberate and justify a philosophy which pacifies an army of vested interests. Almost from the moment the final whistle was blown in Vinkovci, Croatia to herald the England U21 side’s qualification for next year’s European Championships, two schools of thought swiftly parked their tank on the other’s lawn. Southgate’s dilemma centres around the delicious opportunity to parachute-in…
  • Lack of Intellingence and Leadership Costing Tottenham At the Moment

    Nikhil Agarwal
    21 Oct 2014 | 4:55 pm
    In a game of slightly incompetent refereeing, four penalties- two scored, two missed- and a truly virtuoso display by Sergio Aguero, one thing remained the same: Tottenham Hotspur’s inability to read and adapt to a big game cost them in a big way. I’m sorry, but you cannot concede three penalties and a red card against the top teams. Although Tottenham did start the game the better of the two sides, Man City deserved the three points, and the scoreline didn’t flatter them. Barring Christian Eriksen, Spurs’ midfield looked lost at times, and the likes of Nacer Chadli,…

    Francisco ‘Paco’ Alcacer Garcia was a name perhaps not readily on the lips of most football fans before the start of the La Liga season. However, the young Spaniard has made leaps and bounds in terms of his development this year at his boyhood club Valencia. At just 21 he has become an integral player under newly appointed coach Nuno Espirito Santo, relied upon to lead the line for the Mestalla outfit. Thus far he has delivered beyond initial expectations. It is fair to say he has always had the ability, but doubts loomed over whether he could consistently perform at the highest level and…

    Across continents and playing fields, the unbridled excitement and anticipation of the Football match-day is radiated by those who fill the stadiums and create an overwhelming atmosphere. However, a study analysing how much fans are charged for watching their team play live, across over 200 clubs, suggest that The World Game is becoming increasingly out of reach for many supporters. Entitled the BBC Sport’s Price of Football, prices have generally risen across the board and there does not appear to be any evidence to suggest that this trend will cease in the foreseeable future.

  • MOTD: Liverpool 0-3 Real Madrid

    Alex Morgan
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:03 pm
    Anfield has been the backyard playground of so many greats down the years. Robbie Fowler, Ian Rush, and more recently, Steven Gerrard. And while Gerrard was on the pitch at Anfield tonight, as captain of Liverpool, it wasn’t his playground. Five years ago when the two sides met at Anfield, it was. Gerrard scored twice as Liverpool trashed Madrid 4-0, but how things can change in five years. Tonight, the pitch was Cristiano Ronaldo’s playground. Real Madrid as a whole influenced the same domination that formerly belonged to Liverpool. To put it simply, there was no denying the gulf…

    Something just doesn’t sit exactly right with the results in Champions League Group D. Today, CSKA Moscow earned a point against Manchester City with a late comeback, while Bayern Munich crushed Roma 7-1 in a dominant performance. The odd part? In the the previous week of the group stages, Moscow were narrowly defeated by Bayern, but the week before thrashed 5-1 by Roma. Somehow, Roma thrashed Moscow but were upended by Bayern, and in turn Moscow… narrowly lost to the German champions and drew Man City? The only different between Moscow’s meetings with Roma and those with…

    Fellaini proves he will test Mata For all the criticism surrounding Jose Mourinho for letting Juan Mata go last January, it has been apparent the Special One may have gotten it right. For some reason, Mata has simply never struck chord since joining United. He has just one assist in seven appearances, nothing compared to that when he was in form, a time which seems so long ago now – the 2012/2013 season. Calls have already been made for Mata to be scrutinized more, and the Spaniard is certainly running out of time to prove himself before he loses favor. After all, United’s…
  • “Deserved better” isn’t good enough for QPR

    Alex Morgan
    19 Oct 2014 | 8:53 pm
    Queens Park Rangers were hardly unlucky. It wasn’t by some fluke that Liverpool scored thrice to beat the home side 3-2. Two of Liverpool’s goals came from own goals and the other took a major deflection, but that doesn’t mean that QPR were unlucky. Steven Caulker and Richard Dunne were certainly unlucky, but in both cases QPR caused their own downfall. As Harry Redknapp put it at the end of the match, it was defensive “naivety”. Playing well is only half the battle. Winning is the other. It doesn’t matter that QPR should have won – they didn’t.

Say what you want about what it all means, whether it has anything to do with the big money at the top of the league or the defenders or strikers or whatnot, but over the past five years the average goals-per-game in the EPL has been 2.79, up over .20 on the early days of the league. And not only have there been goals, there have been quite a few thrashings in the past few years. Today, Southampton…

    Visit SoccerSouls #457600634 / gettyimages.com As Liverpool prepare to welcome Real Madrid at Anfield tomorrow, their fans would have excitement and fear at the same time. It has been a long time since Liverpool have hosted a team of this stature in the Champions League and thus this would be a huge moment for the club. On the other hand, they would be facing a team of Madrid’s caliber who could run havoc through their defence. Liverpool were very lucky to snatch a win against QPR in their last Premier League game after the London side hit two own goals. Their defence was all over the place…
  • Arsenal January Transfers – 3 Super Alternatives For Sami Khedira (With PL Experience)

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:35 pm
    Visit SoccerSouls Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has definitely understood that his lack of transfer activity in the summer window has landed the club in deep waters. They cant seem to get ahead of the mediocre opponents and this is not what we expect from a side who should be challenging for the titles. Their main area of trouble is the centre of the midfield and they are lacking the rigidity there. This is primarily the reason why they cannot dominate against the lesser and the more physical sides and end up struggling. This has even posed problems for their attacking players and men like…

  • West Brom 2-2 Manchester United Match Review

    21 Oct 2014 | 3:39 am
    Manchester United continued their winless run away from home after an entertaining 2-2 draw was played out at the Hawthorns. We fell behind twice but found the strength in character to bounce back both times but unfortunately couldn’t gain our first away victory of the season. In truth, it is another setback after our previous couple of victories over West Ham and Everton but Louis Van Gaal noted it was our best away performance to date. LVG is probably right which is the concerning thing. We didn’t win yet it is our best performance outside of Old Trafford. Angel Di Maria once again…

    After having to witness another lackluster international break as an England fan, I’m delighted to welcome back to he cut and thrust of the English Premier League as we travel to The Hawthorns on Monday night to take on an improved West Bromwich Albion this season. Louis Van Gaal will no doubt have been wishing his players a injury free break from domestic football and there is no serious injury concerns to report which is a welcome relief given our injuries thus far especially defensively. However, we had hoped the international week may give some of the already injured players a…
  • Manchester United 2-1 Everton Match Review

    7 Oct 2014 | 4:56 am
      What a man David de Gea is! The young Spanish goalkeeper drew heaps of criticism when he first joined the club from Atletico Bilbao as a fragile shot stopper but how he has grew in stature since. A penalty save and two world class saves in the dying minutes of our 2-1 victory over Everton helped us secure a vital win that moves us into 4th place ahead of Liverpool and Arsenal. In Wayne Rooney’s absence through suspension, it was a massive chance for Juan Mata to prove his worth to the squad and that he’s the best candidate for the number 10 role behind Robin Van Persie and…

    So after more than a year outside the top 4, United finally climb back into the Champions League places after beating Everton. Nobody’s getting carried away (or at least I hope not). It’s early days, we haven’t been playing at our best and matches like Sunday could easily have gone either way. However, the points are on the board and the table does make for more appealing viewing. So what next after the international break? Well hopefully by then some of the injuries will have abated, especially in defence. Although young Paddy McNair has been impressive in his first two…

    Not many would’ve predicted that Louis Van Gaal would still be waiting for back to back victories at Manchester United but that opportunity presents itself once again after our victory over West Ham United last weekend at Old Trafford. We’re now in October which evidently shows just what a treacherous time LVG has encountered thus far. The 2-1 victory over West Ham was also another painful watch as we had captain, Wayne Rooney sent off on the hour mark which thankfully didn’t cost us. However he is now suspended for the match against his former employers as Everton come to…

The French side are desperate to hold onto the Ghana star and handed him a fresh contract on Tuesday with new terms which would see his wages increase after several failed negotiations. Sources close to the player told Ghana’s leading football news outlet www.ghanasoccernet.com that the player was handed the new deal in their bid to force him to stay. But Ayew opted not to sign the contract which means he will leave the club by the end of the season…

    Neymar and Lionel Messi maintained their lethal partnership with a goal apiece as Barcelona swept aside Ajax 3-1 in Group F. The Argentinian was the provider, slipping the ball through for Neymar to hit the opener with a clinical finish into the corner after seven minutes. He then struck midway through the half to put the hosts in control. Andrés Iniesta threaded the ball through to Messi and his shot from the centre of the penalty area squirmed under the goalkeeper, Jasper Cillessen. Messi now has 69 Champions League goals, as does Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, two off the all-time…

Loic Remy, Didier Drogba, John Terry and Eden Hazard were all on the scoresheet to help the Blues maintain their impressive start to the campaign, ensuring they are flying high in Europe as well as in the Premier League. That’s 10 wins in their opening 12 matches, but while the goals were flowing, it came at a cost. Remy limped off injured after just 16 minutes.

    If there were any doubts as to who the best goalkeeper in the world, surely this next vine will put that all to rest. There is nothing more Bayern Munich’s shot stopper Manuel Neuer can really do to solidify his spot as the top net minder currently playing the game. The German showed just how amazing his reflexes and shotblocking abilities are yesterday when he denies Roma’s Gervinho a goal from not even five yards out. In what should have been a fairly routine goal, Neuer was having none of it and kept the ball out with a brilliant piece of goalkeeping.

    Group A Iceland were the early pacesetters in Group A after wins over Lativa and Netherlands, with Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson being the star man for the side after scoring three goals in the two games. He was particularly impressive in the second game against the Dutch, scoring a brace to help inflict the Netherlands’ second defeat of the group stages. Meanwhile, Czech Republic are now also on nine points after three games.

The change should go into effect in time for next season’s competition. Up until now, pot one has contained the eight teams with the highest UEFA coefficient. A main part of this coefficient is a club’s performance in previous UEFA competitions. Usually, multiple teams from only a select few countries make up the teams in this pot.

Helped Ze Ghermans to fight back and win the 1982 World Cup Semi Final in Seville. A trick which they repeated 4 years later in Mexico. So all in the force of history looks to be with them. But they play an awfully high line this German team so hopefully Neuer won’t be repeating Schumacher’s trick!

Ancelotti failed to recall exactly which year out of those eight he approached Liverpool about signing the former England international, but Gerrard’s tight bond with the Premier League club made any move impossible. “Gerrard’s a leader. A great player, the most important figure that Liverpool have. He is the Paolo Maldini of…

    18 Oct 2014 | 3:03 am
    Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out for a further two to four weeks after pulling his calf at Liverpool’s Melwood training facility. A fortnight ago, Brendan Rodgers had tipped the England international to make a return from injury this weekend against Queens Park Rangers, but Sturridge’s nightmare start to the season is set to continue. The Liverpool manager asked Roy Hodgson that the 25-year-old be excluded from international duty in order to aid his recovery, but rather ironically, the striker picked up an injury under the Reds’ watch. “Daniel has pulled his…

    Liverpool narrowly won Sunday’s away game against QPR 2-3. But the talking point since the game has been the poor display by frontman Mario Balotelli. In his five appearances with Liverpool in the Premier League, the striker hasn’t found the back of the net even once and has failed to capitalize on several good chances as well. Even Liverpool’s legendary defender, Jamie Carrager publicly lambasted the poor performance by the striker lately and advised coach Rodgers to leave the player out of the team until he regains his form. Fans’ reaction towards Balotelli have been…

    Liverpool have won again. Not in the most spectacular of performances, but I have never been one to question HOW we win, when we win. It’s best to just be happy with three points than to criticize a team that may not have played their very finest football, they still brought you a victory. It’s largely luck that helped the reds get the result they needed today. This game saw two own goals by the opposition, only one of the three goal Liverpool were credited with actually were scored by a Liverpool player. Our starting lineup had some changes from previous games: where we had seen…

    Liverpool fans had to hear another sad news yesterday! Gifted striker Daniel Sturridge would be out for up to 4 weeks because of a tendon injury. The striker, who had captured the hearts of all Liverpool fans since the last two season has already missed most of the current season’s games so far because of injuries and looking at the performances of the Reds so far, we have missed some firepower for sure, that Danny could have added to the squad. So the question is, will Liverpool be able to cope with the absence of Sturridge for even longer? The options With Sturridge out, Rodgers has…

    Liverpool FC is one of the most supported clubs on the planet and some estimates suggest that there are nearly 70 million supporters of the club. But, it would also be a mistake to put all the fans in the same category. There are fans who have supported only Liverpool FC throughout their lifetime, and then again, there are people who become Liverpool fans when the Reds are winning and then start supporting other clubs when they are losing. But there are some things that can easily differentiate a real Liverpool fan from a posing one. If you really think you are a true and loyal Red or are…

The decision to sell him for £16Million to the Gunners is now looking like the bargain of the season for Wenger. Goals are not in short supply, 13 in the league but clean sheets certainly are with 10 goals conceded so far. The nearest team with 10 gaols in the against column is West Ham in tenth place.

Now, last year, every fan would tell you that seven points at that stage in the season was a terrible start, in fact, it was a blooming nightmare start for United. One that David Moyes never truly recovered from. But, what of van Gaal’s start to the season? If last year’s start was a nightmare, what will the fans make of this atrocious start to a season?

When again challenged about Welbeck’s departure the Dutchman pointed out that 27 goals in 141 games does not compare as well as say Wayne Rooney or Robin Van Persie. So, a lack of goals was, apparently, van Gaal’s primary reason for allowing Welbeck to leave the club and on that logic I can’t fault him. From value for money point of view that is…

    A team that has spent over 150 million pounds in the last transfer window (and have won the most top flight titles) lead a newly promoted team (who spent less than 20 million in the same window) 1-3 after 60 minutes. A controversial refereeing decision and a shambolic collapse later, they ship four goals in 21 minutes and end up losing 5-3. To top it all, they have a player sent off by the referee. A great win for the team who have just returned to the top division after a 10 year gap, especially factoring in that the visitors had never ever given up a two goal lead and then lost the match in…
  • United are back – NOT!!!!!!! – just yet, Roger to complete the set??????? and a Festival that has been and gone but will hopefully return

    So Man Utd are BACK!!!!!!! – cough cough cough. Well if you spent over £150 million pounds on players – beating QPR, who were also one of the newly promoted teams, at home, has to be a pre-requisite surely. All the 4-0 win tells me is that with the addition of the newly acquired players there is some light at the end of the tunnel for Manchester United fans, but one win means nothing, it has to continue if they want to be challenging for a top four place, let alone the title. They need to keep a pace as they have the advantage of not being in the Europa League (and now the League…

    I always like to wait until the international break (and the closing of the summer transfer window) to comment on how the Premier League season may pan out – though making an accurate judgement after just three games each is ridiculous really but here goes anyways ;DDDDDDD – In table order:- Chelsea – Pre-season title favourites and they have done nothing to disprove this theory. Did most their transfer business early doors (the signing of Cesc Fabregas was a masterstroke) – supplemented by Loic Remy, once busted flush Torres was loaned to AC Milan towards the end of the…

I’m happy, because it shows that he wants to and likes to play. I would get angry if it were the opposite. All of the players want to play. It’s obvious that those that don’t, become angry.

    Team News: Kyle Walker is still out long term with Spurs hopeful he is going to be back in December. Kyle Naughton could return but don’t expect him to start and is a major doubt. Nabil Bentaleb picked up an ankle complaint on international duty, which ruled him out of the trip to Manchester City and is still ruled out of this game. Expect loads of changes with Newcastle at home on Sunday. Eric Dier should retain his place at right back with no one else able to play there. Federico Fazio should start with Jan Vertonghen after his red card against Manchester City ruling him out against…

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:37 am
    Well Caught Offside published a story about a week ago which seems to be doing the rounds now. It concerns a supposed £10 million pound bid from Tottenham Hotspur for Arsenal player Lukas Podolski, the story can be found here. Not sure about this even happening to be honest. Podolski is behind the pecking order at Arsenal. In his left wing/forward position he is behind Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla and even Mesut Ozil. In the striker position Wenger prefers Danny Wellbeck, Olivier Giroud and even Yaya Sanogo. In theory this transfer makes sense, Podolski needs…

    Team News: Hugo Lloris is a doubt for the game with Michel Vorm now on standby to fill in. However Lloris is expected to play according to some French journalists as his knock is not so severe. Nacer Chadli is another doubt due to picking up a knock on international duty for Belgium. However he himself expects to play after the way he is talking to the media about the game. Erik Lamela may not play due to international commitments. He may arrive too late from duty with Argentina and may not have enough time to recover to play on Saturday. Kyle Naughton is carrying a knock and Eric Dier is…

    With news that Tottenham Hotspur are trying to bring in Yedlin in January after sealing the move over the summer, we look at the reason’s why Yedlin must come early. Aaron Lennon Lennon could be on his way out of Tottenham in January with constant speculation that Spurs are offering him to other clubs and Lennon seeming not to be in Pochettino’s plans. Yedlin would provide cover for his exit with the American able to play on the right wing. He played on the wing often for the USA during the World Cup and used his pace to full effect.

    22 Oct 2014 | 7:29 pm
    For years, Americans have predicted American football’s (soccer) long awaited arrival in the mainstream. But the metrics by which that achievement has been measured are many. Some believe it can evaluated on international successes such as regular knockout round qualification and a quarterfinal appearance in recent World Cups. Others might cite the tremendous growth in popularity of the US national teams and the professional game overseas. And still others attribute the maturation and expansion of our domestic league as the key indicator. And to be fair, all of those are fair measuring…

  • Is Harry Redknapp losing his spark?

    Joe Rosengarten
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:52 am
    The QPR boss hasn’t been his usual charismatic, interview-out-of-the-car-window self this season. Has he had enough of management or is it just the strain of leading a struggling side starting to show?   Harry Redknapp’s body language has been a bit strange so far this season. He seems to be giving off the vibe that he’s not enjoying his job, that the early morning drive up to M3 from his south coast home to west London is beginning to take its toll. Whatever it is, it’s certainly not helping his QPR team who, after six losses from their opening eight Premier League games, need…

    22 Oct 2014 | 10:48 am
    The faces of the crowd reflected a shock normally reserved for a serious national tragedy, and the noise in the stadium flitted between an awkward, muffled buzz of conversation punctuated with howls of anguish. It was only half-time yet the away team had already put 5 into the home sides net with no reply. This was the scene after 45 minutes in Belo Horizonte on the 8th of July this year as World Cup hosts Brazil had their dreams brutally shattered in the semi-finals by eventual winners Germany. This scene was eerily repeated last night as Bayern Munich tightened their grip on Group E…

    By Jason Hope Cristiano Ronaldo inspired a Real Madrid masterclass and closed in on the Champions League goalscoring record as the holders thrashed Liverpool 3-0 at Anfield on Wednesday. Ronaldo maintained his majestic start to the season with a dazzling display capped by the predatory opening goal that took him to within one of Champions League record goalscorer Raul’s total of 71. The Portugal forward has now scored 20 times in all competitions this season and, with Liverpool reeling from his brilliant blast, France striker Karim Benzema then struck twice to kill off the Group B clash…

    By Jason Hope Substitute Lukas Podolski netted a dramatic late winner as Arsenal came from behind with two goals in the final two minutes to beat Anderlecht 2-1 and hand manager Arsene Wenger a 65th birthday to remember at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium. It had looked like the Gunners were set for a second away defeat in Champions League Group D after the Belgians went ahead through Andy Najar on 71 minutes. However, just as time was running out, England full-back Kieran Gibbs cracked in a superb volleyed equaliser, before German forward Podolski swept home a dramatic winner. Arsenal had…

    By Jason Hope Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta admits the team’s Champions League performances have simply not been good enough. City are facing a familiar battle to qualify from their group after collecting just two points from their opening three matches in this season’s competition. Their latest disappointment came as they surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with CSKA Moscow on a freezing night in the Russian capital. CSKA’s late equaliser did come in controversial circumstances, as City conceded a disputed penalty four minutes from time, but Zabaleta felt the…
