    Everton manager Roberto Martinez is desperately looking to bolster his squad by adding three attacking players this summer ahead of Premier League 2014-15 season. Martinez, 41, admits that the club are in need of attacking reinforcements and are chasing up to three attacking midfielders, following the departure of Romelu Lukaku’s to his parent club Stamford Bridge, who scored 16 goals in 33 appearances as the club finished sixth last season. Martinez told reporters: “We want to bring in three attacking players. “We feel that we are OK in terms of goalkeeper and defence, but we…

  • Atletico Madrid fans invade Calderon pitch during Mario Mandzukic unveiling [Video]

    24 Jul 2014 | 4:03 pm
    Atletico Madrid unveiled their new €22 million striker Mario Mandzukic at the Vicente Calderon today, the Croat arriving from Bayern Munich. With Diego Costa moving on to Chelsea, Mandzukic has been brought in to replace the physical presence vacated by the Spaniard-Brazilian. Before speaking to the press, Mandzukic was brought onto the Vicente Calderon pitch to greet the fans on a sunny Madrid afternoon. A few Atleti fans wanted to get a bit too close for comfort to their new striker, wildly invading the pitch, which called the security quickly into play, tackling the cheeky Colchoneros to…

    After his real press conference following Liverpool’s friendly with Roma, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers then held a fun and novel press conference with Boston schoolkids. The kids asked Rodgers a mixture of fun and educated questions, to which the Liverpool boss responded with great enthusiasm. The first question, a quiz question about how many World Series the Red Sox have won, nearly hit Rodgers for six, but he pulled it out of the bag and got it right, guessing 8 correctly. The kids showed great knowledge of ‘soccer’, and even asked some challenging questions, like ‘Why…
  • Jose Mourinho wants Didier Drogba at Chelsea ‘soon’ [Sun]

    24 Jul 2014 | 3:30 pm
    With reports emerging over the weekend that Didier Drogba is set for a surprise return to Chelsea, the move hasn’t advanced much so far this week. Tomorrow’s SUN says Mourinho has declared he wants the Chelsea legend back at the Bridge ‘soon’, which again, doesn’t advance things much. Mourinho said: ‘Didier is still one of the best strikers in the world; we still fee he belongs to us.’ The Sun’s ‘Drog and Moan’ pun headline is just glorious, the ‘Moan’ part referring to Petr Cech’s designs on the Number 1…
  • Steven Gerrard set for new 3-year Liverpool deal worth £150,000 per week [Star]

    24 Jul 2014 | 3:10 pm
    With Steven Gerrard’s current Liverpool deal expiring at the end of next season, Liverpool are set to offer their captain a new 3 year deal, as confirmed by manager Brendan Rodgers towards the end of last season. The new deal will take the 34-year old Gerrard through to the age of 37, at which point he’s sure to retire, unless he feels he can manage a pre-retirement adventure in some far-flung destination. Gerrard’s new deal will be worth £150,000 a week, according to the Star, which would be a £10,000 increase on his previous deal. A nice pick-me-up after the low ebb of…

    With Jose Mourinho managing to convince Thibaut Courtois to come back to Chelsea this summer, it looks as though long-time Number 1 Petr Cech is set to be relegated to Number 2. But the Czech isn’t prepared to simply accept this as the new status quo, and as far as he’s concerned, it’s a 50-50 battle until the season starts, as revealed by quotes via the Mirror. “I don’t want to be on the bench. This is why I am trying to do everything to be in the team. “I don’t want to talk about ifs and buts. Let’s see how I am going and what happens. “You know I always give…

    The first big deal of the summer transfer window has been made. Houston traded up to get the top allocation spot from Toronto. Midfielder Warren Creavelle was sent in return for that top spot. Houston is looking to sign DeMarcus Beasley with that top spot. Again, here are the rules regarding the Allocation Order: The allocation ranking is the mechanism used to determine which MLS club has first priority to acquire a U.S. National Team player who signs with MLS after playing abroad, or a former MLS player who returns to the League after having gone to a club abroad for a transfer fee.* The…

  • A football fan abroad (Arseblogger)
    24 Jul 2014 | 11:02 am
    My favourite aspect of travelling to watch Arsenal in Europe is the chance it affords one to experience live football in different cultures. I support the biggest, historically most successful and well supported club in the city of my birth. As such, Arsenal is woven rather easily into the fabric of my footballing identity. I have been a season ticket holder since I was 8 years old, English football culture has nurtured me and, in some small, insignificant way, I have influenced it simply by having been an organ of it for my whole life. Travelling to watch football abroad has layered appeal.

    How typical that the morning I’m heading away comes off the back of the quietest day of the summer so far. I really should have got Tom to do this one. So un-newsworthy was it that stories about Lionel Messi ‘sounding out’ Arsenal, via Cesc Fabregas, about a move to us were met with a quizzical ‘Oh, isn’t that something?’ rather than being laughed out of town. Don’t get me wrong, I think we could probably just about find a place for him in the squad, but he’ll have known there was little chance of us ever paying him what he’s on in Spain.

There are murderers who pay less [for what they have done].

    The sky above Pasadena was still bright blue as a red sea of Manchester United faithful filled the Rose Bowl to see their recast club face the L.A. Galaxy on a sultry Wednesday night. The 86,432 who packed into L.A.’s historic college football venue, greater than any UCLA Bruins crowd last season, endured a half-hour kickoff delay in stride as Manchester United’s bus got stuck in traffic.

Despite that decision, soccer experienced surprising growth in America during the 1880s. Among the first areas where association football spread into British working classes were the textile regions of Lancanshire and Scotland's Clyde Valley. In the 1870s and '80s, a tremendous number of people immigrated from those…

    The best way to challenge the status quo, norm or even tradition is to gather the best scientists in the world…give them a hypothesis, myth or belief…and let them tear it apart with research, documented evidence and data. Lets get started… The best way to improve soccer performance is through the acquisition of soccer skills. A fair assessment would suggest that kids spend most of their time in training with the intention of improving technical skills. It would also be fair to conclude that current coaching practice is based on tradition, intuition…and emulation rather than empirical…

    21 Jun 2014 | 3:05 am
    Soccer Drills for Kids This soccer drill is a great way to warm up and develop a healthy appetite for competition. Set up a small circular zone where the players will need to dribble within. It’s important for players to look up and maintain close ball control whilst trying to avoid their teammates. As players dribble amongst each other, place a flag approximately 20 metres away. On the whistle, players must leave their ball and sprint around the flag and back to their original ball. On returning to the balls, the players must pick up their own ball. Practice this drill a couple of…

  • Soccer Passing Drills

    14 May 2014 | 3:27 am
    This soccer passing drill is a great way to warm up and develop close ball control. Before training, set up small grids across from each other. The grids should be roughly 3X3 metres and about 6-8 metres apart. The distance between the grids can be adjusted according to age and skill level. To start the passing drill, one player passes the ball along the ground and into the receivers grid. The receiver has one touch to stop the ball inside of the grid. The receiver (player 2) then passes the dead ball back into the 1st player’s grid. Player 1 has only one touch to control the ball. If…

He was homesick so it was the right thing for him,” explained  Dougie Freedman to the Bolton News.  There was also a terse statement on the BWFC official site.

    There was joy on the street of Bury this morning after the town’s football club drew Bolton Wanderers in the Capital One Cup, a team regarded as royalty in this small suburb of Rochdale. The Shakers have a proud history in knock out competitions having triumphed in the FA Cup at the start of the last century, beating Derby County 6-0, which is still the widest margin of victory in a final.  However, that achievement was dwarfed in a League Cup tie at the Reebok Stadium in 2002, when Bury beat a Bolton side consisting of reserves, apprentices and someone who had only come to read the…

    England expects, as the old saying goes.  Fortunately, when it comes to international football the old girl doesn’t anticipate much these days. So last night’s World Cup defeat to Italy has been greeted with a recognition that Roy Hodgson’s side is a work in progress, rather than the usual anger that accompanies such a setback. England were refreshingly positive going forward, with Rahim Sterling playing the part of pesky, pacy, unpredictable teenager to perfection.  Yet the final pass was lacking, mainly because it was played too soon.  It takes time, and confidence to…

In the thirteen games since losing to Burnley,  Bolton have won 7, drawn five and lost one – comfortably promotion form.  The PR spin emanating from the Reebok Stadium, is that Dougie Freedman’s master plan has at last come together, but just not soon enough. “The most important thing is that it has clicked,” said goalkeeper Adam Bogdan to Greater…

    Fabio Borini is set to join Sunderland in a permanent deal worth £14 million.The transfer itself is no major surprise, given the lad's successful loan-period last Season.However, it is the size of the transfer fee that is raising many eyebrows at Liverpool and Sunderland.Borini was Brendan Rodger's first signing for Liverpool for £10.5 million and due to injuries and a lack of opportunities, he was loaned out to Sunderland where he scored ten vital goals to help them survive in the Premier League under Gus Puyet.While the Italian striker was seen as part of Brendan Rodger's plans this…

    Ex- Liverpool striker Luis Suarez nearly moved to Spanish giants Real Madrid in a £50 million deal.The Daily Star claims that a serious offer was made by Real Madrid to Liverpool to sign Suarez, who was serving a ten-match ban for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ibramovic at the time.However, Los Blanco's instead went for Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale last Summer in an £85 million deal.Liverpool managed to get Luis Suarez to sign a new four-year deal and he went on to have a fantastic Season for the Reds, scoring 31 goals to get Liverpool so close to winning the Premier League, finishing…

    Liverpool’s attempts to persuade the Barcelona forward Alexis Sánchez to move to Anfield mean Luis Suarez's transfer to the Camp Nou will not be concluded until next week at the earliest.Reports emerging from Spain claimed a straight cash fee had been agreed which is lower than the buyout clause, believed to be between £70m and £80m, in the Uruguay international’s contract.However, there is no consistent agreement on what that new figure is – the most common suggestion being €75m (£60m) – but sources close to the Liverpool end of the deal categorically state there is no truth in…

     Luis Suarez has been hit by an unduly harsh and draconian punishment by that body calling itself FIFA.A 9 game international ban for Uruguay and an extraordinary 4 month ban from all football activities including training or playing with his parent club Liverpool is just too severe for me.Liverpool's top striker will now not feature again in a Liverpool shirt until the very end of October meaning he will miss 9 League matches and 3 vitally important Champions' League games.A catastrophe Liverpool could not have foreseen.Added to this nightmare scenario is the persistent rumours…

    20 Jun 2014 | 5:49 pm
    RTE Sport's revered host Bill O' Herlihy sensationally claimed that Barcelona and Luis Suarez have agreed a deal to capture the player.The seasoned sports broadcaster announced that Suarez has signed a pre-contract deal with the Catalans following his match-winning display against England.Barca's Sanchez is an expected make-weight in a £30 million deal.Pure speculation I would say, Suarez has made it known that he is now happy at Anfield following a good Liverpool campaign last Season and the prospect of Champion's League football this coming year.Hopefully there is no truth to…

  • Mathieu Debuchy: Frenchman leaves Newcastle standing to sign-up for Arsenal’s ambition

    O-Posts Team
    17 Jul 2014 | 10:43 am
    Back in the summer of 2012, Mathieu Debuchy had just been named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Year after a superb season for Lille which earned him a place in France’s 23-man squad for the European Championships. Manager Laurent Blanc trusted Debuchy, still a relatively unknown talent despite winning a league and cup double for Lille a year earlier, as his first choice right-back in Poland and Ukraine and he again impressed as Les Blues fell to Spain in the quarter-finals. Against England in France’s opening game he was impressive enough to earn the plaudits, but Mike Ashley, Newcastle…

    9 Jul 2014 | 5:42 pm
    It appears increasingly likely that Alexis Sanchez will be leaving Barcelona in this summer’s transfer window. Having spent three relatively successful years at the Catalan giants the impending arrival of Luis Suarez from Liverpool has seemingly left him surplus to requirements. His arrival from Udinese in 2011 had been billed as somewhat of a coup at the time. His performances in Italy and for his national team, Chile, had alerted many of the major sides in Europe to his potential. An exceptionally quick player blessed with a sound technique was someone Barcelona thought would be immensely…

    Well, that was a disappointment. And that’s putting it lightly. Russia bowed out of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil without a victory to their name, and it’s a tournament that all Russian fans want to forget immediately. Pedestrian football with a toothless approach doesn’t sound like a recipe for success, and so it proved with Fabio Capello’s men yet again failing to get out of the group stage of a major tournament. But just where is it going wrong? Russia’s the biggest country in the world, and theoretically the country should be amongst the best every single time. But it…

    Once regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, Fernando Torres used to terrorise defenders when he was at Liverpool. However, since his mega transfer to Chelsea, he has really struggled to get going. Be it injuries or change of styles and managers, the Spaniard has been a disappointing misfit in Chelsea in the Barclay’s Premier League. Now Torres seems to have attracted interest from his former club Atletico Madrid and AS Monaco, who need back-up strikers. El Nino seems well settled in Chelsea and is in no hurry to move, especially as manager Jose Mourinho feels he needs Torres…

    Last season saw Chelsea miss out on all available trophies, with Manchester City winning the Premier League and League Cup, Real Madrid winning the Champions League and Arsenal winning the FA Cup. Part of the reason for them missing out could have been because they were not fully focussed on a certain trophy as they have a reasonably large squad in comparison to others.

    Ethan Ward
    20 Jun 2014 | 12:00 am
    Perhaps the most important element of any team that has ever played a competitive football match, is the midfield. They run everything and literally dictate the game. They will help out the defence when needs be, but also contribute heavily in attack. I know there is no way of definitively which position is most crucial to a team, because it varies depending on the situation. However, without a good midfield your defence becomes weaker and there is no link between the attackers and the rest of the team which which will have repercussions in attack.

    Spanish Segunda Division side Cultural Leonesa have announced their new kit, would you wear this?It is designed to have the opposition rolling about with laughter?

    24 Jul 2014 | 3:40 pm
    As I sat and enjoyed the game between LA Galaxy and Manchester United, something peculiar stood out about Major League Soccer’s most famous side. The same team that captured consecutive MLS Cups not too long ago was totally outmatched by a set of players playing together under a new manager for the first time. It was evident that the creativity, dynamic attack and deceptiveness that had made LA a force to be reckoned with was missing. United dominated the game and humiliated the Galaxy by scoring seven unanswered goals. David Beckham made LA Galaxy the top team in Major League Soccer. The…

    Toronto’s BMO Field played host to another Summer of Soccer match on Wednesday night as Tottenham Hotspur narrowly edged past a resilient Toronto FC side 3-2. It was a game of two halves as both teams used the half time interval to clear the cobwebs and give squad players some much needed match practice. The pre-match hype revolved around ex-Tottenham striker and fifth all-time leading goal scorer Jermain Defoe who would take the field as the captain of Tottenham’s ‘Foe’ in the red strip of Toronto FC. Pre-match speculations revolving Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson were also…

Even though the Dutch tactician’s 3-5-2 formation was shaky defensively in the early stages, United managed to keep Robbie Keane and co. off the scoreboard. Wayne Rooney, Reece James and Ashley Young made huge impressions on their new manager with two goals each. Danny Welbeck also found the back of the net. Ander Herrera was also a standout performer and he had the game’s first meaningful attempt. His long range…

Ever since Luis Felipe Scolari resigned his post following humiliation at the hands of Germany and Holland at the World Cup, people have been wondering who would be charged with picking up the pieces. Today they found out. The man the CBF have placed their trust in is none other than former Brazil captain, and former manager, Carlos Caetano Bledorn Verri, better known as Dunga.   This has prompted many of my fellow Brazil fans to despair and declare that the dark days of Brazilian football are…
  • Is James Rodriguez a necessary signing for Real Madrid?

    Gianluca Filosi
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:59 pm
    Yes it is official. James Rodriguez has been unveiled as a Real Madrid player after completing his big money move from French side AS Monaco. A reported fee of €79.5 million was enough to entice the principality club in selling its most prized asset, despite the 23-year-old having spent just the one season in Ligue 1. The Colombian prodigy was the revelation of the 2014 World Cup and his notable performances have seen his stocks rise. The Spanish giants could not refuse the temptation in attempting to acquire him, after James himself fuelled the fire, by stating he would favour a move to…

    This summer, Real Madrid have launched a bid to sign James Rodriguez, the Golden Boot winner and arguably one of the best players at World Cup 2014. Following the 23-year-old’s incredible breakthrough performance at the tournament, Madrid couldn’t stay away from the world’s latest star. However, Monaco are believed to be asking up to what would nearly be a transfer record of a sum in the region £80 million for Rodriguez. Madrid can splash that amount of cash, but under UEFA Financial Fair Play rules have to fund that with the sales of other players. So if Rodriguez comes…

    Major League Soccer, the United States’ main professional league, has been faced with one challenge since reintroducing itself in the early late 1990s – making “soccer” one of the top few sports in America. Not just to play as a child or watch every four years at the World Cup, but actually attach Americans to the MLS, instead of big name European clubs. Make the sport big in the US, and the MLS with also rise with it – that is the MLS’ mentality. However, the league’s road has been far from smooth. When the league started, it was made up of just…

    19 Jul 2014 | 5:35 pm
    FIFA’s World Rankings might be criticized for their accuracy , but following World Cup 2014 they have nailed a major theme throughout the tournament – a transition. Just last month, the rankings calculated Spain were the best nation in the world; a position they had been in control of for the majority of the past five years. That was mainly off the back of their 2010 World Cup victory, in which they only failed to win a single match out of seven against the likes of Portugal, Germany, and the Netherlands. This year, in a heartbreakingly short campaign, the Spanish won just once.

    This summer, Arsenal have splashed £33,260,000 on signing Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez. While it is hard to even believe a single player is worth that sum, it isn’t an uncommon sum to trade hands at the top of the Premier League these days. In fact, this summer Arsenal’s average paid transfer has been worth £23.23 million. This kind of money could rent you out the entire country of Liechtenstein for almost a third of a year. But at the top of Europe, it isn’t even record breaking. Real Madrid’s entire squad is worth over half a billion pounds. In the Premier…

Although there were some questionable refereeing decisions, Mexico grabbed their deserved win with Hernandez unable to make too much of a contribution and missing a chance that he would usually have buried. That game was followed by the Spain v Hollands match which had opinions split on the eventual outcome. We were all shocked, including myself (I predicted 2-1 to Spain), as Van Gaal’s well organised…

I think it is right to start off with what he has already achieved and won; the obvious reason as to why he’s suited to the role. At every club he has managed he has won the league: at Ajax he won the Eredivisie thrice; at Barcelona he won La Liga; at AZ he again won the Eredivisie and at Bayern Munich he celebrated winning the Bundesliga. As well as that, his probably most remarkable victory was the Champions League with Ajax. This success comes mainly…

    German World Cup winning-captain Philipp Lahm has announced his retirement from international duty with immediate effect. At the age of 30, Lahm will be leaving the national scene on a high after contributing much to manager Joachim Löw’s eight-year plan for success; his last hurrah was to lift the golden trophy aloft while his nation celebrated their victory over Argentina to claim the biggest prize in football. Not a bad way to say goodbye really. His departure will be a massive blow for Germany, with the Bayern Munich star having been a fixture in the team ever since making his…

  • Germany V France – a Rich World Cup Rivalry

    Robert Foster

    Manuel Neuer likes to play as a sweeper, and in fairness he does it pretty well. But a German keeper charging out at a French attacking player will evoke bad, bad memories for any French supporter of age enough to remember this….. Was it the worse unpunished foul ever? Probably. 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!

    Great action in all the last 16 ties (USA Belgium, best extra time I’ve ever seen) but some equally great action coming Pundits-side. We’ve had some superb Faux pas this week, from George Hamilton referring to Germain Jones of the USA as Cobi Jones (he played for them about 15 years ago) to Glenn Hoddle referring to Algeria as Al Jazeera, see video below. This is classic and all bets are off as far as best Punditry Faux pas, this won’t be beaten! But Kenny Cunningham has been the most entertaining viewing for me this week and was aptly described, as above, by one tabloid as…

Firstly, let’s get this out of the way, the punishment is just about fair. Biting is disgusting, too many kids watch the game, it was his third offence (not to mention the racism) so all in all I think FIFA got it right.There are a lot of people saying that FIFA are hardly Doyens of righteousness to be handing out such bans, and maybe this is so, but it is still their job to dish out discipline when needed.
