    Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are prepared to play Manchester United this weekend. Five questions ahead of Sunday's Manchester United-Chelsea match. Who will play up front for Chelsea? Of course, we know by now not to necessarily take at face value the words of football managers, especially Chelsea's Jose Mourinho. First he claimed Diego Costa would be out for some time and then, the old tease, he claimed there was a chance of him being fit for Sunday's clash. There is a fairly decent chance Costa will be missing after picking up a groin injury while playing for…

In 2010, Mexico surprised the United States in CONCACAF qualifying, forcing the team to wait to earn its ticket to Germany.

    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…

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?

Landon talked for a while longer, so I might post that later.

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.

Though the club called for Trevino to be punished for his prejudicial commentary on social media, all that appears to have…

    A traditional 3pm kick-off today, and what I’d give for a traditional one nil to the Arsenal. Don’t get me wrong, I’d take a 2-0, a 3-1, a 4-3 or any shape of win, but a clean sheet would be nice given how often we’ve conceded this season. The team news is that Jack Wilshere misses out through suspension having picked up five yellow cards, and I think Mikel Arteta will come into the midfield for him. I suspect we might see Arteta and Ramsey as the two deeper midfielders with Cazorla ahead and a front three of Alexis, Alexisn’t, and Danny Welbeck. The key decision…

Under the circumstances, as the game went into the final few minutes, I wasn’t expecting us to snatch a point, let alone all three, so do that is really very enjoyable. The goals themselves were fantastic. Calum Chambers put in the best cross of his life and Kieran Gibbs finish was so good I thought it was Podolski at first. Then the German did get on the scoresheet after tireless work from the incredible Alexis. His first touch and finish…

    Despite scoring a hat-trick in Tottenham's Europa League win against Asteras, forward Harry Kane may well remember Thursday's for a goal at the other end. Tottenham forward Harry Dane demonstrates that goalkeeping is harder than it looks. The striker had scored a hat-trick to help his side to a 5-0 lead at White Hart Lane when goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was sent off Having used all their substitutes, Lloris passed his shirt to forward whose first task was to face a free-kick from the edge of the area.

    Lamela's goal brings back memories of a less successful attempt from a former England international. Erik Lamela’s amazing ‘Rabona’ goal for Tottenham in their 5-1 Europa League win over Asteras Triplis, has already been described as the goal of the season. It’s a phenomenal piece of agility and a trick that every child in the playground will be looking to emulate today. A word for warning though, kids: it’s not as easy as it looks. Get it wrong and you’ll be a laughing stock for years to come. Just ask Blackburn Rovers’ David Dunn A few years…

    Although Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are back from their respective injuries, and Serge Gnabry and Theo Walcott will soon be featuring in Arsenal matches, Laurent Koscielny’s injury appears to be a bit more serious than first expected.  The central defender returned to London while on international duty earlier in the month because of an achilles injury. Ahead of Arsenal’s away match to Sunderland, manager Arsene Wenger gave an update on Koscielny’s injury.  The Frenchman stated, “I cannot give you any date (of a possible return) because we go day-by-day with him (Koscielny) at…

    Brendan Rodgers raised a few eyebrows over the summer when Liverpool signed Belgium striker Divock Origi from French team Lille for around £10 million and then quickly loaned him back to France for the 2014-15 season.  Origi, a rising teenage star, impressed at the 2014 World Cup for his Belgium national team.  The Belgian youngster normally came off of the bench during the tournament; however, the substitute always seemed to provide a spark to his team once coming onto the pitch. In his second cameo appearance of the tournament, Origi scored what would become the winning goal during a…

Both teams were locked on 60 points with two games to play. The first game of the home and away series, played at LA Galaxy’s stadium, was a tightly contested 2-2 draw that saw the Galaxy, with the league’s best defense, give up a two goal lead.

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
  • Where did it all go wrong for the Azzurri?

    1 Sep 2014 | 6:57 am
    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

    Italy’s quest for a fifth World Cup has taken them to Brazil 2014, with a squad bursting at the seams with Scudetto winners, seasoned internationals and intriguing young talents. 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.

    For a club that has utterly dominated the domestic game in recent times, United’s home league record against Chelsea is not particularly impressive. In the modern Premier League era United have won eight, drawn eight and lost six against the Blues. It’s fairly common knowledge that Chelsea have the best record of any other team in the Premier League against United, but this is seen as something of a modern phenomenon. It is not. If you look at the results between the two clubs at Old Trafford, stretching back to the 1966-67 season, a quarter of a century before the Premier League era…

The Premier League’s joint highest scorer is a major doubt for the Old Trafford clash, with hamstring issues and a mystery illness having kept him out of the Blues’ recent fixtures. And with Loic Remy also injured, veteran striker Didier Drogba may be Jose Mourinho’s only orthodox option up front for the game.

    Manchester United and Chelsea’s hopes of snapping up Colombian ace Juan Cuadrado have suffered a major set-back, with reports from The Express revealing that he’s closing in on a new contract at Fiorentina. The pacey winger is a rumoured January target for the Premier League faints, who have both been impressed with his form in Serie A and at the World Cup earlier this year. Cuadrado himself was thought to be keen on a move to one of the continent’s biggest sides, yet now he looks set to extend his star in Florence.

    Mario Balotelli is set to be given an instant chance to get his Liverpool career on track against Hull this afternoon, according to reports from The Mirror. The Italian forward has been one of the major talking points in English football through the week following his shirt-swapping incident with Pepe during the Reds’ Champions League loss at the hand of Real Madrid. With Balotelli having made an underwhelming start to life at Anfield since his £16m summer arrival, some have already called for the 24-year-old to be axed in January.

At times it was just that easy. Following an opening twenty minutes in which the hosts pressed their Spanish guests with the kind of gusto one would expect from a team managed by Brendan Rodgers, a moment of brilliance from Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with a sublime effort…

    Math-round previews for Jornada 9 in Spain. CELTA DE VIGO over Levante Levante's decision to hire Lucas Alcaraz was a practical one. There have been rumblings that the club was eager to move in a more progressive direction, but due to their position on the table, and horrid defensive performances, Alcaraz was seen as a logical choice. Club chairman, Quico Catalán, has made some excellent administrative decisions since his arrival in 2010, in which he's helped Levante become one of the most solvent clubs in Spain following their filing of bankruptcy in 2008. While I don't doubt that Catalán…
  • FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: La Liga Clasico Match Preview

    Luis Mazariegos
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:18 am
    Feel that? It's called goosebumps. Barça visit the Evil Empire in a match where we will see Luis Suarez make his debut and maybe - just maybe - Lionel Messi bag the all-time Liga scoring record. More importantly, three points hang in the balance as Barcelona aim to not only further the gap over their eternal rivals, but keep other challengers such as Sevilla, Valencia and Atletico Madrid at bay. For Real Madrid, it's a chance to avoid sinking after a fabulous string of results. The capital club could drop as low as sixth without winning, though, with the right results, could climb to second.

  • Di Maria and Herrera fit to face Chelsea

    24 Oct 2014 | 12:16 pm
    Both players had to be substituted during their side's 2-2 draw with West Brom on Monday night. Herrera was making his return from a cracked rib but only lasted 45 minutes, while Di Maria was pictured having an ice pack strapped to hi leg after suffering a dead leg. Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Van Gaal confirmed both players would be available for Sunday's clash with the Premier League leaders. "Ander Herrera was already fit for the last game and [as for] Di Maria, I said after the [West Brom] match that it should be not so heavy. He has trained on Thursday so no problem," van…
  • Pardew hails inspirational Taylor

    24 Oct 2014 | 7:06 am
    Taylor has spent over two years on the sidelines with two serious knee injuries, but he came through the full 90 minutes of Newcastle reserves' 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion earlier this week. Manager Alan Pardew is now ready to include him in his plans for the trip to White Hart Lane. Taylor injured his knee in the early stages of Newcastle’s Europa League qualifier against Atromitos in August 2012 and subsequently underwent surgery to repair the damage. He made steady progress in his rehabilitation and was on target to make his return at the start of last season until he…

    Carrick suffered ankle ligament damage in July with the news of his injury emerging at the end of Louis van Gaal's first press conference as United manager. The timing of the injury means Carrick has yet to play under the Dutchman, but he made a welcome return to the bench for Monday's 2-2 draw with West Brom and he is ready to start impressing the new manager. "It's your worst nightmare as a footballer to be out for so long and this is the longest I have ever been out. I have never really had to deal with big injuries before, so this was something new for me," Carrick told the club's…

    Costa missed last weekend's win over Crystal Palace and the Champions League defeat of Maribor with a persistent hamstring injury, while it emerged during the week that he had spent time in hospital due to illness. Although Chelsea have not specified the nature of the illness, it has been reported that the 26-year-old had symptoms similar to a severe stomach bug, raising fears that he would be unavailable for the trip to Old Trafford. Mourinho, however, has revealed the Spain international could feature against Louis van Gaal's side. "He has a chance, he has a little chance. The same as…

    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 striker “furious” at Brendan Rodgers. Does he have a point?

    Liverpool Football Blog
    25 Oct 2014 | 2:23 am
    Liverpool have struggled since the sale of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge’s injury has only made matters worse. Mario Balotelli was supposed to help fill the void from Suarez’s departure but the Italian has not only not scored, but looks disinterested every time he goes on to the pitch. Liverpool’s other strikers, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini must wonder what they have to do to get a game. It’s understandable too, with Balotelli playing so poorly and not even trying anyone would be annoyed not to get a game. Fabio Borini, who nearly left Liverpool in the Summer…

    Real Madrid humbled Liverpool 3-0 at Anfield last night but the immense quality of Real Madrid wasn’t Brendan Rodgers’ only problem. Another lazy display by Balotelli did little to sway the Anfield support’s opinion that he is simply not working hard enough. To make matters worse, Balotelli changed jerseys with Pepe at half time with his side having been completely outplayed, something Rodgers did not like at all. “We will deal with it,” Rodgers said. “We had an incident with a player last year and we did it internally. It is not something I stand for. If you want to…

    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…

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.

    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…

After a win over Hannover last September, Guardiola hides away from his family for several hours, going over and over videos of the match before finally cracking a tactical solution. It is an instance of the attention to detail and the quest for perfection that drives Guardiola, leaving no stone unturned as he prepares his team for an upcoming opponent. “All I do is look at opponents and try to…

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.

    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…

To avoid Barcelona giving an excuse that Real Madrid’s squad was significantly better that theirs, Mendoza preferred that Barcelona also have great players in their ranks so that Madrid’s superiority would be unquestionable.In some ways, that has always been the case at Real Madrid and Barcelona.From a history of Alfredo Di Stefano and Ladislao Kubala, to now Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel…

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.

    Arsene Wenger has revealed Olivier Giroud could be available for the first team sooner than the expected date. Giroud was ruled out in September for up to 4 months after sustaining suffering an ankle injury while blocking a clearance in the final minute of the 2-2 draw with Everton.  The Frenchman was introduced as a sub late in the game and his presence proved productive as his goal earned Arsenal a point in the premier league fixture.

    Former Fernabache star, Joseph Yobo has revealed Arsenal could be discussing a move for him with his agent. 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.

  • Mario Balotelli: Make or Break

    Danny T Owen
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:33 am
    The return of Mario Balotelli was an inevitable eyebrow raiser. And, with a single strike from ten appearences, the doubtful declarations are increasing; both in volume and regularity. Representing his fourth club at just 24, there’s a palpable feeling of make or break for arguably football’s most perplexing enigma. Inter, Manchester City, AC Milan, Liverpool. The CV of Mario Balotelli reads like a who’s-who of European goliaths. An array of esteemed coaches, from Roberto Mancini to even Jose Mourinho, tried and inevitably failed to pacify the Italian’s penchant for self-destruction.

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.

    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…

    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…

And unless Gus Poyet their meeting with Arsenal on Saturday may not be much better. Normally, Sunderland would except to lose to Arsenal, even at home. But should they go down by a few goals, things could easily get out of hand again.

    What do Roberto Mancini and Jose Mourinho have in common? They both coached Mario Balotelli. Moreover, the have all lost patience with Balotelli. At some point in his time with all of them, it’s not his performances on the pitch that drive the managers nuts, but the personality that comes with it. Not even necessarily his personality – Mancini at least seems to have a good relationship with the Italian striker based on that which they have said – but his disciplinary issues. From fireworks to pranks and erroneous acts, Balotelli has driven managers nuts. Balotelli’s…

    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…

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…

    Visit SoccerSouls Liverpool’s last Premier League game saw them edge out QPR late on in a 3-2 win, but truthfully the game could have gone either way. Liverpool sit in fifth place, behind West Ham who are fourth on goal difference, but will be hoping to affirm their place in the Champions League spots, starting this weekend. Raheem Sterling is showing no signs of tiring, and continued his fine start to the season against QPR. The England playmaker is Liverpool’s top scorer with three goals and also has completed the second most dribbles in the Premier League with 26, six of which were…

    Visit SoccerSouls #457772842 / gettyimages.com With Sunderland coming off the back of a eight goal thrashing, if it was any other time other than this we could comfortably say that Arsenal are the favourites. However given Arsenal’s own wobbly form at the moment, having taken two very late goals to rescue the 3 points at Anderlecht, there is a genuine risk of Arsenal dropping even more points today. Sunderland, on their part, are probably the biggest jekyll and hyde team in the Premier League so don’t let the 8 goal thrashing fool you. The Black Cats will always be a threat at the Stadium…
  • What’s Wrong With Arsenal?

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:48 pm
    Visit SoccerSouls Since winning the FA Cup at the end of last season, Arsenal went on to sign Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez and replaced the key departures of Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna with the immensely talented youngster Calum Chambers and the solid Mathieu Debuchy respectively. They also added underrated striker Danny Welbeck and Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina to their ranks. With no major disruption (bar Sagna) to the team composition and some real quality added, many, certainly the majority of the Gooners expected Arsene Wenger and his boys to kick on from last season where…

Swansea manager, Gary Monk, was extremely severe in his condemnation of Michael Oliver’s officiating in the game. Monk was incensed by Oliver’s decision to give Stoke a penalty after Victor Moses appeared to ‘go down a bit too easily’ in the area under challenge from Swansea defender Angel Rangel. Rangel definitely made contact but it seemed far too soft to be…

    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…

    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.

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.

In trying to establish its identity, amidst the often puzzling fashions of the 1990's, many of the clubs around the league were outfitted in kits with bright colours and strange designs. Like the National Hockey League, which also saw teams come out with some strange jerseys in those years, it was as if many of the teams in the sides were saying, "Look kids: we're cool, we're hip, buy our kits!"Many of these jerseys looked…

    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!

    24 Oct 2014 | 7:13 am
    England and Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has confirmed he will hang up his boots at the end of this Premier League season. The centre back left United to join Queens Park Rangers at the end of last season but has struggled to put in a set of consistent performances, prompting the announcement of his pending retirement. At Old Trafford, Ferdinand had a brilliantly successful time, playing in over 450 games for the club, winning six Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups and one UEFA Champions League title. The 35-year-old was also named in the Premier League PFA team of…

    Sunderland have signed free agent Anthony Reveillere on a permanent short-term contract. The experienced defender has been available on a free transfer since the summer following his release from Serie A side, Napoli. Reveillere brings a wealth of experience to the Black Cats defence, playing a key part in Olympique Lyonnais domination of French football last decade. The Frenchman also made a big impact at Rennes and spent a short spell on loan at La Liga side Valencia in 2003, just before his move to Lyon. Arsenal could be the first challenge thrown at the feet of the 34-year-old, but the…

    UEFA have ruled CSKA Moscow will not face any disciplinary action for allowing a few hundred fans into the ground in their 2-2 draw against Manchester City. The European governing body had ruled the Russians were to play three Champions League games behind closed doors due to racist chanting in one of their previous games. CSKA had complied with this in their previous games, but one way or another a portion of fans managed to get into the ground and the club made no effort to eject them from the stadium. Vincent Kompany was vocal about the incident, appearing to suggest Manchester City and…

This, for Manchester City, should be everything, but at the moment they look like they could go out. “If the results go the wrong way for them, that could be the last time we see them this year – they could be out in the group stages. “It shouldn’t have been like that.

    Harry Redknapp has launched a scathing attack on Adel Taarabt following Queens Park Rangers’ 3-2 defeat at home to Liverpool. The former Tottenham boss was questioned about the Moroccan midfielder’s fitness during the post match press conference and made his feelings about Taarabt well known to those sat in front of him. Redknapp accused the tricky midfielder of refusing to train properly during the week and that he was three stone overweight. Taarabt has only featured three times for the Rs this season and it was thought this was due to an ongoing ankle complaint but Redknapp…

    SORRY FOLKS. I apologise on behalf of the team that just couldn’t keep their unbeaten record against their opponents. More painful and disappointing than the loss itself, is the fact that our history against this club was so successful. We’d never been beaten by Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo had never scored at Anfield before. THINGS CHANGE, huh? As a dedicated (die hard) fan, I value the history of Liverpool FC highly. The LEGENDARY HISTORY of Liverpool FC is to be preserved for the honour of our club and against Madrid, the current team couldn’t do that. It hurts…

    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.

    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…

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…

Chelsea was leading the table with 26 points from 14 games, while Birmingham were two points behind them and the Reds 2 points further. So, Liverpool LFC actually had lower chances compared to its opponents. Yet, all changed in the final day, as Chelsea Ladies lost to Manchester City Women 2-1, while Birmingham City ladies…

      Does anyone else remember the infamous 6-3 away day thrashing that Southampton dished out to Manchester United a few seasons ago? No, let me jog your memory, the Red Devils wore the now infamous grey ‘third kit’!  There you go, now you remember. That third kit was never seen again as it had become something of a superstition to the players. What is it with Southampton?  They hold some of the most memorable score lines in Premier League history. This weekend’s eight nil thrashing of Sunderland has reinforced the progress the team have made under Ronald Koeman. The Dutchman was…

    With the international matches firmly behind us we can look forward to a return to the Premier league fixtures. This apathy for low budget international matches is really hurting the national squad, however, I am at a loss as to how they can improve things. As a fan I am not that interested in watching England labour against low ranking opposition such as San Mario, even the Switzerland game was not one to write home about.

    Danny Welbeck scored his first senior hat trick in the Champion’s League with Arsenal and promptly hit back at Louis van Gaal’s insistence on playing him on the wing. 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. Chelsea will be hard to stop with 21 goals in the bag so far and no defeats. So much for my preseason predictions!  I gave…

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?

    I have spent the past week complaining about Danny Welbeck’s exit from Old Trafford and in one sentence (uttered in a recent press conference) Louis Van Gaal demonstrated why he is the manager of Manchester United Football Club, and not me. 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…

    This weekend sees some cracking live games in the Barclays Premier League – here’s my preview of the games. West Ham United v Manchester City – Saturday 25th October 2014 – 12:45pm KO – Upton Park 4th v 2nd – The Champions have the opportunity to put the pressure on the leaders Chelsea as a win will reduce the current deficit to two points. They managed to do it last weekend after an early kick off victory over Spurs in what is now known as the ‘Four Star Sergio Aguero’ show. I doubt West Ham will be as open as their London counterparts, but…
  • Tiredgate and the opening up of Euro Champs Qualification is a good thing

    So despite a distinctly average performance in Tallinn as England struggled to breakdown 10 man Estonia, a breakthrough was eventually forced by captain, Wayne Rooney (JOB DONE I SAY) and the Three Lions left the Estonian capital with the points and their 100% qualifying record intact. However, seemingly the big headline from the game was that Raheem Sterling felt that he was too ‘tired’ to play the full 90 minutes. Manager Roy Hodgson told the truth when interviewed pre-match on his absence from the starting line up. The inevitable furore began as to how a 19 year old professional…
  • Rugby contracts, Muzza making progress and sort it Eddie and fast

    7 Oct 2014 | 4:41 am
    So with less than a year to go till the 2015 Rugby World Cup – I personally can’t wait – love my sport me – England Coach Stuart Lancaster has been given a six, yes, SIX year contract extension. Some people will say why give it to him before Rugby’s elite competition (his previous contract expired at the end of next years bonanza). This to me is a gamble, England are in the group of death with Australia and Wales, they will also play Uruguay or Russia as well as Fiji in the opening game of the tournament– so they will have to be ‘On It’ from the start. It is not…
  • Football – who knows what can happen??????? – the unexpected thats what!!!!!!! and Ryder Cup thoughts

    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…

    17 Sep 2014 | 5:03 am
    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…

    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…
  • Thoughts on the Lukas Podolski rumours

    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…

    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…

    25 Oct 2014 | 1:42 am
    By Jason Hope Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is confident England goalkeeper Joe Hart will sign a new contract at the Etihad Stadium. Hart has been back to his best this season and the club have been in negotiations over a new deal. The 27-year-old’s current contract expires in the summer of 2016. Pellegrini said: “I think it’s an issue that we’re talking about. Joe knows what I think about that. I think in the right moment, (we will) have the right solution. I think Joe wants to stay here and we want him to stay.” If he re-signs, Hart would follow…
  • Schmeichel slams Neville over Mignolet ‘character assasination’

    By Jason Hope Peter Schmeichel has criticised his former Manchester United team-mate Gary Neville for questioning Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. Siding with his fellow shot-stopper rather than his one-time Old Trafford colleague, Schmeichel said Neville was guilty of a “character assassination” after claiming the Belgian should have kept out Phil Jagielka’s long-range late equaliser for Everton in the Merseyside derby. In the wake of the September 27 match, which finished 1-1, Sky Sports pundit Neville made his feelings clear in a five-minute critique of Mignolet.

    By Jason Hope Dusan Tadic can top the Barclays Premier League assist charts and help Southampton push for Champions League football, according to boss Ronald Koeman. Tadic set up a club-record four goals in Southampton’s 8-0 Sunderland hammering at St Mary’s last weekend. The Serbia playmaker has slotted seamlessly into life on the south coast since his £11million summer switch from FC Twente. Saints manager Koeman has admitted the 25-year-old has the talent to create more goals than any other Premier League star this term. And the former Holland full-back believes that if Tadic…
