    It was dubbed a new strategy for the Los Angeles market but no matter how you spin it, Chivas USA is now joining the ranks of the Miami Fusion and the Tampa Bay Mutiny as a former MLS team. MLS announced on Monday that the league is ceasing operations on the LA-based club and will announced a new owner on October 30. The new owners will have two years to get things in order as they will begin play in 2017, the same year as the new Atlanta club. “As part of our new strategy for Southern California — a major hotbed of soccer participation and fan support — we believe that engaging…

Alan Irvine's West Brom (2-4-3) have impressed at times in the early months of the season, but have had a disappointing week with a draw with Crystal Palace in the league and a 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth in the League Cup on Wednesday evening. The Baggies boss rang the changes for the cup game, but was disappointed that the reserve players didn't step up with any performances that would have challenged the places of the Premier League regular starters.

    Out with the old and in with the new. At least that is how it feels with Chivas USA leaving and Major League Soccer announcing the new owners of the LA2 franchise that will begin in 2017. It may or may not be called Los Angeles Football Club, or LAFC. The list of owners announced today was rather impressive. The three guys on the top are the big founding partners, Henry Nguyen, Tom Penn and Peter Guber. Also included are Mia Hamm, her husband Nomar Garciaparra, Vincent Tan, Magic Johnson and motivational speaker Tony Robbins. Right now there are 22 owners listed. Yes 22! That is enough for a…

    While news over the weekend broke about Sacramento officials heading to the Big Apple to meet with MLS executives, the league continues to push that adding a team in the Midwest as a priority for the future of the league. MLS Commissioner Don Garber spoke to the Chicago Tribune about the expansion plans of the league recently, stating that he hopes to see another rival for the Fire soon. “The Midwest is a priority,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said told the Tribune on Friday. “Minneapolis is a big priority for us.

    Could we potentially get another expansion club announced this season? While my gut tells me the league will hold off on doing another this year it is interesting to see this news. Sacramento Republic team owners, executives and Sacramento mayer Kevin Johnson visit league headquarters in New York City. This all came from a report out of the Sacramento Bee on Saturday morning. The group will meet with league executives in New York on Tuesday. Furthermore, these meetings will involve a presentation of sorts from the Sacramento group.

    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…

    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? What we talked about is private, but he told me I wasn’t going. I told him that I respected his decision. If it was my choice, it would be different. First reaction?I couldn’t believe it. It was a little incredible for me. I…

    “Alexis is one of the best. He’s very committed. Even in recovery sessions he wants to go outside and train to keep improving.” So said Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta of his new teammate Alexis Sanchez. There were flashes of brilliance in Alexis’ opening games for Arsenal, even if the understanding with his teammates had yet to arrive. He was left out of the starting line-up for consecutive league matches against Aston Villa and Tottenham, but since that brief hiatus, he’s almost carried Arsenal’s attack. Especially with the likes of Giroud, Walcott, Özil and Ramsey…

    Pretty quiet again this morning, which is only to be expected after we won a game. It’s not as if you can really go to town on what a great performance it was against Sunderland so under the circumstances quietness is par for the course. Yesterday on Twitter, Santi Cazorla posted a picture of himself holding up a pair of football boots, asking people ‘What do you think of my new boots?’ I don’t particularly care one way or the other, but after his shooting escapades over the last few weeks, I’d have been happier seeing him put the old ones in a stone pit and…

    Morning all. Not a lot going on today as we carry on from the 2-0 win over Sunderland. After that game the main issue is the fitness of Kieran Gibbs who left the pitch with what looked like a hip injury and any absence there would leave us very short of defenders. There’s been nothing official yet, but some suggestions from the press that it’s not too serious. [Insert joke about it being more serious than anyone could possibly have imagined]. In light of that, I tried to find out if Gibbs was banjaxed and we found ourselves down to two fit defenders and a cardboard cut-out of Ian…

    As Moussa Sissoko stabbed the ball past Willy Caballero to send Newcastle United into the quarter-finals of the League Cup, you could sense a shift in momentum at the football club. On the pitch, on the bench and in the stands, fond memories were created on a special night in Manchester as the travelling Toon fans did an ironic Poznan to celebrate a famous 2-0 win. The architect of the victory, Alan Pardew, had previously seen his relationship with the Newcastle faithful disintegrate. On this occasion he took rare moment to enjoy himself in the wake of a fine achievement. “It was…
  • Why Suarez’s Ballon d’Or Omission Is Making The Award And FIFA Less Relevant

    Cronan Yu
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Nowadays, FIFA, world football’s governing body, has little to no credibility. With the organisation, under the leadership of Sepp Blatter, seemingly in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, FIFA has been under damage control for some time now. And the release of the 23-man Ballon d’Or shortlist will not help. Sure, accomplished veterans including the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, nemesis Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta have made the cut – by default, we assume. However, it was the shocking omission of former Liverpool talisman Luis Suarez that has the world talking. The Ballon d’Or…

  • Reasons Why Borussia Dortmund Are Experiencing Problems In The Bundesliga

    Saad Rashid
    30 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    Although Borussia Dortmund’s win over St Pauli in the DFB-Pokal eased some tensions, problems still remain, as Dortmund have made a terrible start to the Bundesliga season. Already 14 points behind league-leading Bayern Munich, Dortmund have only won two out of their opening nine games of the season. On the other hand, they are sitting top of their Champions League group, including a superb performance at the Westfalenstadion against Arsenal. It is easy to blame a multitude of injuries and the loss of Robert Lewandowski for their struggles. However, there are other problems which need…
  • Youthful Valencia Assistant Coach Ian Cathro A Potential Master Tactician In The Making

    Valencia is currently sitting fourth in La Liga and only two points behind current leaders Barcelona. They’ve already beaten champions Atletico Madrid and look like a decent shout for a Champions League spot on current form. Los Che is being coached by Nuno Santo and assisting him is a 28-year-old Scot who made his name coaching youth team football in Dundee. Ian Cathro is one of the brightest coaches to have come out of the British Isles ,and if his career trajectory continues its spectacular course he could be on his way to bigger and better things.

    17 Oct 2014 | 5:38 am
    It may seem as if the summer transfer window has only just shut but with the European campaigns underway across Europe, scouts are already looking at potential purchases at the start of 2015. Italian based players will always attract their fair share of interest and here are five men who could be heading for the Premiership before the end of January.

    6 Oct 2014 | 3:04 am
    Carlos Tevez looks set to extend his stay in Italy with Juventus after his agent admitted the striker will soon hold talks with the Italian giants to discuss a new contract. 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
  • Who will be Italy's match-winners at Brazil 2014?

    12 Jun 2014 | 8:39 am
    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.

    29 Oct 2014 | 7:06 am
    Real Madrid showed on Saturday that the Spanish league title race is far from over after securing a very important 3-1 win over arch rivals Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu. Barcelona may have come into the match with only a four-point advantage, but this is the league where top teams – read that as Barcelona and Real Madrid – drop very few points over the course of the season. Prior to Saturday’s defeat, Barcelona were the overwhelming favourites for the title. Betfair now places the Catalan club at a much more modest 6/5, in the latest Spanish league betting odds, to win the title.

Given the choice, I suspect that Gus Poyet would turn the clocks back more than an hour; probably eight days or so. Sunderland’s hangover from the eight-goal drubbing at St Mary’s showed little sign of abating in an unsurprisingly uninspired and unadventurous performance. That’s not Arsenal’s problem, they have their own to deal with but in winning, they can only beat the…

Manny Road called time on Bolton’s hapless manager last October in the Dougie Freedman Experiment Isn’t Working, but he was kept in situ – not least because the Scotsman provided a much needed diversion from how badly the club was being run. “Dougie has worked tirelessly off the field to improve the infrastructure of the football club,” said chairman Phil Gartside announcing the dismissal.  Gary Megson was also credited with…

    Gibson made a welcome return to the international fold in September's win over Oman after almost a year out with a cruciate knee ligament injury and had been tipped to feature against Scotland. However, he jarred his knee in training and faces an anxious wait to discover the extent of the injury. "Darron has picked up some sort of injury in training," manager Martin O'Neill is quoted as saying in the Irish Independent. Glenn Whelan has been named in the provisional 36-man panel but the Stoke midfielder faces a race to be fit after breaking his leg in the 1-1 draw with Germany. It was thought…

  • 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…

    After another sloppy display at the back by the Reds at QPR on Sunday where we let in two more sloppy goals in a lucky 3-2 victory, its high-time people were held to account for the amount of goals Liverpool have consistently conceding over the past year or more.It arguably cost us the Premier League last Season and it will cost us a lot more this year with no Luis Suarez to bail us out.WHO'S TO BLAME FOR LIVERPOOL CONCEDING SO MANY GOALS?

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:00 pm
    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…

    Liverpool suffered a cruel blow this week when key forward Daniel Sturridge suffered a calf-strain, just as he was on the brink of returning for the Reds following an injury with woe-full Roy Hodgson's England in August.Now Brendan Rodger's Liverpool will have to persist without him for another few weeks as QPR and Real Madrid lie in wait, not easy.   Possible Liverpool Team V QPR Lets hope for a win against Harry Rednapp's side to move us back near the top four where we belong.

    Liverpool's Raheem Sterling excused himself from England duty against Estonia on Sunday by telling Roy Hodgson that he 'was tired.'England boss, Roy Hodgson, in his wisdom, decided to release the news in his post-match press release, ill-advised Roy.With Sterling at age 19 having burst onto the scene in Liverpool's chase for the Title last Season and then playing in every game in Brasil 2014 for England, all of that playing time and pressure was bound to tell on a player, especially one so young.He has looked somewhat jaded for Liverpool these past few games with his first-touch and control…

  • Luis Suárez: “Liverpool are in very good hands with Brendan Rodgers”

    Liverpool Football Blog
    27 Oct 2014 | 8:47 pm
    In an extract published in the Guardian from Luis Suárez’s new book ‘Crossing the line: My story’ the Uruguayan has given Brendan Rodgers a glowing appraisal and suggested that his coaching methods helped get the best out of his game. Suárez also said that Rodgers helped the team improve too and that even though results were not great when he first took over, everyone could see that there was an improvement in Liverpool’s game. Supporters and pundits have both suggested that Liverpool’s incredible season last season was down to Suárez’s individual…
  • How Coutinho and Lambert improved Liverpool against Hull

    Jeremy Farrell
    25 Oct 2014 | 6:19 pm
    Liverpool began the game against Hull like they have so often this season, with Balotelli alone up front and the team struggling to make inroads against a solid Hull defense. For the first 60 or so minutes chances were hard to come by for both teams and the fast starts and high score lines of last season drifted ever further away into the past. Then, on 65 minutes Brendan Rodgers introduced both Phil Coutinho and Rickie Lambert and Liverpool instantly improved. Mario Balotelli’s work rate was very much improved from previous performances and if he keeps that up he will have no trouble…
  • 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…

    Liverpool Football Blog
    23 Oct 2014 | 6:26 am
    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…
  • 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…

  • Southampton: Koeman working wonders against the odds at St. Mary’s

    O-Posts Team
    26 Oct 2014 | 6:42 pm
    Southampton fans weren’t quite as spoiled this weekend as they were the week previous as Stoke City turned up at St Mary’s in a typically diligent and disciplined mood. The workmanlike approach of Mark Hughes’s team meant there would be no repeat of the 8-0 drubbing that did for Sunderland the week before and for all those turning up in hope of a repeat of last Saturday’s goal-glut, there would be an element of disappointment. There was just the one goal this time, Sadio Mane’s first in the English game after his strike against Sunderland last week was chalked off by the dubious…

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…

    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.

  • What effect would independence have on Scottish football?

    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…

    Brendan Rodgers is looking to solve his defensive concerns by signing a new keeper – Fiorentina’s Neto. The Reds’ goalie Simon Mignolet has faced a lot of flak this season after many costly mistakes led to soft goals conceded by the Anfield outfit, and the manager feels that the Belgian stopper needs some competition for the number one spot.Italian news outlet CalcioMercato, however, reports that the Viola will look to tie their keeper down to a better and longer contract, in order to avoid losing him. However, the Brazilian has reportedly stalled on signing a new…

Loan spells at a string of Spanish clubs for the last four-five years mean that Silva is now naturalized as a Spanish citizen, and hence he will be allowed to play for Arsenal in the English Premier League.The 21-year old was understandably ecstatic over the news.

And yet, in the grand scheme of things, this was a game which tallied on with the rest of Chelsea’s Premier League games this season.

    Originally posted on Top-soccer.com www.google.com/+TottenhamHotspur The Europa League may sometimes struggle to compete the Champions League in terms of quality but the match between Tottenham and Astera Tripoli produced a piece of skill fit for any footballing stage. Tottenham’s Erik Lamela scored a spectacular goal, executing the reverse kick known as the rabona to perfection. Lamela wrapped his left foot around his right leg to shoot home from 20 yards and send the White Hart Lane crowd wild with delight.

As the Premier League season gathers pace, the name Pelle is popping up with ever-increasing frequency in the sports pages.

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.

    After the announcement of MLS’, erm… second twentieth team, Los Angeles Football Club, set to take the place of the second LA club after the collapse of Chivas USA, the question begs to be asked – where next? Just in the past year MLS has announced three other new expansion franchises – a second New York based team, New York City FC, Orlando City SC, and another team in Atlanta. Yet it doesn’t look like MLS is done expanding. The next club may well not be announced until 2017, when the last of the currently planned franchises will finally enter the league,…

    Watching Major League Baseball’s World Series over the past week has made me rediscover everything which I love about football. It’s not that I don’t find the World Series exciting, far from it – being a San Francisco native it may be one of the first times the sport has my nerves jangling. However, that excitement is something far different than that of the beautiful game. You watch a baseball game for two hours and the game won’t be even half over, though often times it is all but put to bed. The experience football provides is completely different. In the…

    In Mario Balotelli’s soap opera at Liverpool, the man just scored big. After the fact he Tweeted “finally”, and it can be certain we all felt the same. He literally scored a goal that helped keep Liverpool in the league cup, and inspired a late win over Swansea City. It was his first goal in October and just his second since joining Liverpool. The goal came at just the right time, granted that would have been said if he had scored last weekend or the week before, however, at least it came. More importantly, it kept Liverpool in the Capital One Cup. The minor club’s…

    If there is one thing I have learned in playing in and around the USA’s developmental academy system, is that until the ages of eighteen or so, a developmental academy is more or less just a label. That is not to say that the label is useless – it attracts talent and pools the regional talent. The problem is that, in Major League soccer there are only nineteen clubs in the league across all of the United States. Even if each club has an academy, that leaves the majority of states and areas without an academy of a professional club to join. In Europe, almost every child joining an…

But for this Manchester United struggling to make the Champions League, and this top-of-the-table Chelsea, the result was far better — especially in light of the match’s phenomenal finish. Supporters will come away thrilled and players with newfound confidence. It might have been their best result of the season, but moreover, it certainly was their best performance. Louis Van…

    A dramatic last gasp equalizer from Robin Van Persie gave Louis Van Gaal’s side a share of the spoils as Chelsea were denied a victory that would’ve sent them further ahead at the top of the English Premier League. A second half goal from Didier Drogba looked to have been enough for Jose Mourinho’s side who looked a threat largely through Eden Hazard who proved a menace all game for the visitors.

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…

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…

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.

    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…

Suarez picked out his fellow forward after just three minutes and Neymar came inside before finding the bottom corner.

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.

      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. But it is not just the fans who are feeling apathetic to the national teams fixtures, so are the players. Furthermore, we watch the national team dominate their qualifying…

    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…

    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…

    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…

  • Daniel Levy is Tottenham’s greatest strength but also it’s greatest weakness

    Daniel Levy has come under a lot of scrutiny in recent days after our loss to Newcastle at home and in some ways it is justified. Levy has been holding us back for a while now but does he still deserve to get all this flack? Levy is a shrewd businessman and believe it or not he has taken this club back into contention for Europe in his reign, since when he joined we were fighting relegation and going nowhere as a club. He has done some good things. For example he has help bring in players such as Rafael Van Der Vaart for a bargain 8 million pound fee. He managed to bring Luka Modric to…

  • Bale, the Ballon d’Or and Brits at the Bernabéu

    Danny Norman
    29 Oct 2014 | 3:43 pm
    Gareth Bale’s record transfer to La Liga was seen as a risk in many quarters due mainly to the incredible financial sums involved, but it’s fair to say that his first 14 months have gone beyond expectations. His inclusion amongst this year’s 23 nominees for the coveted Ballon d’Or award is a confirmation of his exploits. Whilst he is still a rung below footballing behemoth’s Messi and Ronaldo he has earned his right to be considered as a starter in Ancelotti’s galacticos when fit, and to sit at footballs top table as a bona fide superstar. Bale Force: the Welshman has hit…

    Now, before you all start ranting about how ridiculous that claim is and what could possess me to make such a statement, let me elaborate. I know what you’re thinking: ‘How can you say that when a marine makes around 25k per year, while Wayne Rooney makes 300k per week?’ And let me be clear, I am by no means saying that footballers deserve to earn so much more money than the average man. What I’m saying is that they’re earning the right amount for their field. Let me explain. Football is a business, pure and simple. Many people would like to think that…

    Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has just played his 500th game for Juventus in the Serie A. The Turin club played Genoa but Antonini scored a goal to make the final score 1-0 despite Juventus hitting the woodwork twice. The captain wore a special armband which had the number 500 on it. AS Roma are now equal with Juve on the table, both having 22 points. Genoa have spoiled Buffon’s special moment but Juventus are looking strong and may still win the league.

    Manchester United drew with Chelsea in the latest round of the Emglish Premier League. It was a huge result for the Red Devils. Robin van Persie equalised in the very last minute of play. Drogba scored the first goal of the game from a corner and United weren’t looking strong. Chelsea’s keeper Thibaut Courtois made many good saves until finally being beaten by the Dutchman. Does this put Man U backin the race for the EPL title? Picture from independent.co.uk
  • Marseille Stopped by Lyon

    28 Oct 2014 | 2:05 am
    Lyon have cut off Olympique de Marseille’s eight game winning streak in Ligue 1. However, the club is still on top of the table with an astonishing 25 points, 4 points ahead of second placed Paris Saint-Germain. Marseille had been playing very well and dominating by Lyon scored from the counter-attack with only 25 minutes left to play. The last time that Marseille won 8 Ligue 1 games in a row was back in 1998, when their winning streak was broken by none other than Olympique Lyon. The loss has thrown the Ligue 1 wide open and PSG is now not very far away from catching up to the lead.

    Borussia Dortmund are now on seven points after 9 rounds! This is a shocking start to the season for the black and yellows. Now they are 14th on the Bundesliga table. Now, not only are they struggling to keep up the challenge to win the title but are slightly threatened to get relegated! Their rivals Bayern Munich are on 20 points, nearly triple Dortmund’s points! Next week match day, Dortmund will play Bayern on an away game at Allianz Arena and if they continuely playing like they are currently, I wouldn’t be surprise to see a 7-1 win from Bayern. If Jurgen Klopp and Dortmund…

    Real Madrid have crushed rivals Barcelona is La Liga’s latest El Clásico. Los Blancos have now scored an amazing 33 goals in their 9 games this season. The two teams are now only 1 point away on the La Liga table, with Real having more goal difference. Messi should have seen his team up 2-0 in the 23rd minute when Suarez, making his debut for Barcelona, crossed the ball from the right. Karim Benzema hit the post and the bar separately, but luckily Gerard Pique did a hand-ball in the penalty area. Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t miss those. The home team kept on going into the second…
