  • Video: How Atlanta Stadium Will Transform For MLS

    We’ve heard for weeks how the new Falcons Stadium in Atlanta will transform into a MLS venue in 2017. It appears we finally have a glimpse of what the $1.2 billion stadium will do when it does indeed transform from a NFL venue to a MLS venue. The new team, which was officially announced last week and will be owned by Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, has released a video showing how the upper sections will be closed off to give the stadium an ‘intimate soccer environment’ similar to BC Place, home of the Vancouver Whitecaps. I don’t know about you but I assumed all…

    (Reuters) - David Moyes lost his job as Manchester United manager because he ignored advice and failed to appreciate the scale of the job, said Rene Meulensteen, a former coach at the Premier League club. Moyes was sacked on Tuesday after a disastrous 10-month spell in charge, with United now certain to finish outside the Premier League's top four for the first time. Midfielder and assistant coach Ryan Giggs placed in temporary control for the final four league matches of the season while United search for a permanent successor.

  • Motor racing-Senna had so much to offer, says sister

    By Andrew Downie SAO PAULO, April 25 (Reuters) - For Brazilians of a certain generation, the death of Ayrton Senna is not unlike September 11 or the assassination of John F. Kennedy. "It's funny, it doesn't seem like it was 20 years ago," his sister Viviane Senna said of the Formula One great's fatal crash at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Even though two decades have passed, Senna still casts a mighty shadow over both his sport and Brazil. During Senna's peak years between the first title with McLaren in 1988 and his death in a Williams in 1994, Formula One almost rivaled football as…

  • Eliminating throw in rules

    25 Apr 2014 | 12:25 am
    The game would benefit if FIFA eliminated throw in rules and just let players throw the ball in. IMO throw-ins slow down the game because a player must set his feet then must struggle to find a team-mate because the throw in mechanism limits how far he can throw the ball. Allowing players to throw the ball in however they liked (think basketball) would speed up the game and result in more open play and more goals because 1. A one handed throw can go much further which means teams could use it... Eliminating throw in rules

    24 Apr 2014 | 11:50 pm
    Italian website IlSussidiario.net are reporting that Hatem Ben Arfa, fed up with life at Newcastle, is angling for a move to Roma this summer. Ben Arfa’s contract at Newcastle expires in 2015, however the French midfielder has reportedly let it be known that he wants out of St James’ Park when the season closes. According to Il Sussidiario, whilst Inter milan and Arsenal are also looking at the Newcastle player, Roma is the likeliest next stop for the 27-year-old. Il Sussidiario suggest that while the Magpies would want 12 million euros for Ben Arfa, the deal, they suspect, can…

    The book of Arsenal’s injury martyrs is, by now, a well-thumbed document (rumour has it that Abou Diaby picked up a particularly nasty paper cut leafing through his own chapter of woe). It is well acknowledged that, yet again, the optimism of a promising looking season has been pin pricked by the sting of long term absences. We all knew this was the case prior to the match at Hull on Sunday, but with Mesut Özil making the play and Aaron Ramsey prowling the opponent’s penalty area, we were given a stark demonstration of it anyway. However, I don’t think injuries are the sole factor in…

    Told you this was going to be a quiet week. I was playing football late last night and had that thing where you can’t sleep afterwards, but when I did I was dreaming about FA Cup final tickets. All of the tickets for Arsenal fans were being sold from a kiosk in space and you had to take this weird shuttle craft to get there. However, for some reason they located the kiosk in the middle of an asteroid belt so loads of the shuttles were being smashed by space rocks and people were spinning off in the vast expanses like they were Sandra Bullock in Gravity. The club defended this by saying…

There’s no crisis, as such. No drama, nobody seeking explanations about what went wrong against Hull, and although there are still things in the season overall which are not great when you think about them, they’ve been done to death over the last couple of months and only the most masochistic would insist on doing it all again. I mean, we could, but what’s…
  • Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil add intelligence to Arsenal’s tireless running

    blogger@arseblog.com (Arseblogger)
    21 Apr 2014 | 10:28 am
    Arsenal fans pondering “what might have been” had Aaron Ramsey been fit for most of the season got their answer when he burst through on goal with one of his trademark runs to open the scoring. Asked whether he too harboured regrets whilst spending three months out injured, the Welshman answered with a knowing smile: “Absolutely, of course”, he said with the brazenness that permeates his game at the moment. It might seem a bit delusional to suggest that Arsenal would be challenging for the title had Ramsey, and indeed, Mesut Ozil, been fit for the second part of the season but then…

    Liverpool's emergence as title contenders has surprised most people, not least their star striker Luis Suarez. Luis Suarez “It [winning the Premier League] would be something that no one would believe. We have good players but if you look at the complete roster, we don’t have [players] to be up there. The truth is that we are surprised ourselves at how well we’re playing. “We have good players who are demonstrating why they are in Liverpool and it would be something amazing even to England because of the investment made by Chelsea, [Manchester] City and Arsenal.

    Financial Fair Play turns out to be a damp squib as UEFA president walks away from confrontation with big-spending clubs. UEFA president Michel Platini has confirmed that no clubs will be kicked out of European competition next season for breaking financial fair play rules. UEFA’s financial fair play (FFP) policy intended to stop clubs spending more than they earn, comes into effect next season. However, the ultimate sanction of excluding clubs who fail to comply will not be enforced for the 2014-15 season. The sighs of relief emanating from Paris, Monaco and Manchester will only be…

    The suggestion that we all share responsibility for the spread of misinformation that followed in the wake of the Hillsborough disaster, is wide of the mark. Liverpool fans mark the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. Under the maudlin headline “We all share in the shame of Hillsborough,” the Daily Telegraph columnist Matthew Norman has written a column as cheaply facile as it is misleading. “We are all guilty!” is too often the misleading cry of the self-appointed moralist. But here, sentimentality is compounded by sheer careless ignorance. Norman appears to take it for…

  • So This Is What Jose Mourinho’s ‘Weakened’ Chelsea Team Will Look Like Against Liverpool [PHOTO]

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has toyed with the idea of fielding a weakened team against Liverpool in the biggest Premier League match of the season. If Liverpool wins the match at Anfield on Sunday and Manchester City drop points against Crystal Palace that same day, the Reds can clinch its first-ever Premier League title on May 5 against Crystal Palace. But while there’s been a lot of fuss about Mourinho fielding a weakened side this Sunday, the fact of the matter is that even a weakened Chelsea side has a total cost of £123.7million, which dwarfs most other Premier League sides.

  • Why Juventus should prioritise Europa League triumph

    31 Mar 2014 | 6:57 am
    It might sound strange to suggest that the Serie A leaders should focus their attention away from domestic fixtures but there is more than one reason why Juventus should prioritise the Europa League during the run in to the end of the season. The Turin based side are coasting towards their thirtieth national title but why should they focus so intently on a Europe wide competition that is seen as a poor relation to the Champions League? With nine games left in the regular league campaign, Juve had built up a 14 point gap over their nearest rivals Roma. The second p

So now it's time to take stock of the remaining clubs and who looks to be the favourite among the contenders. This past week saw two closely contested matches: Udinese defended their home ground and earned a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina while AS Roma did the same with a 3-2 win over Napoli. But can the first leg's winners maintain their advantages through the coming week's matches? Here's a quick look at each team's status heading into the second leg. Udi

So, if a coach in reading this article, recognizes his concepts, please don't be angry at me. If you let me know, I'll give you all the credit, by publishing your name and references. Coachability. What a weird word. In my note I wrote: Is this player coachable? Want to listen and learn? Why waste time on an uncooperative individual no matter what his age is ?

    Very often we make the common mistake of thinking that champions are born that way. Sure, talent is an important component, but it's only that. One of the components in the 'recipe' for making a champion. More often than we believe, those who became outstanding champions, were kids with grave physical problems. Sports history clearly shows this. Do you remember the great Johnny Weissmuller who, a long time ago, made all of us go crazy for his interpretation of Tarzan? He was the first man to go under a minute (that's 60 seconds!) in the 100 meter free style. Looking at him in the movies, it…

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…

    Hopes that FFP might be effectively implemented were given the footballing equivalent of a wet fish being slapped across the face with FIFA readmitting Barcelona to the transfer circus. Despite holding a ticket that clearly stated, “Strictly No Readmittance“, the Catalan club managed to finagle their way back with a well-timed appeal which left world football’s governing body with insufficient time to play out the legal process to its fullest extent. Of course it is not FFP but highlights the lengths to which clubs can go to secure their best interests. The summer was…

    If a week is a long time in politics, it’s a lifetime in football. Arsenal’s world has turned once more, three consecutive wins with injury striking Everton’s forward line changing the complexion of the battle for fourth place. There are more twists and turns to be had, defeat at St Mary’s on Saturday might see The Toffees come unstuck, especially if Newcastle remain true to form on Monday night at The Emirates. What was a close run race can become a canter in the blink of an eye. As Everton’s woes begin, Arsenal’s ease. The weekend saw the return of…

    In days of old, the cigar smoke would have filled the oak-panelled room. The fate of the manager decided as the brandy slid down the throats of the local great and good. The decision on whether (or perhaps when is a better word) to replace David Moyes would not have been so convivial nor based on solely on footballing reasons. Manchester United is a business first and foremost; their board concerned with the implications for the brand as much as the squad. That decision, according to reports this morning, was taken as long ago as February. There may be financial reasons for not acting then…

    Hull City 0 – 3 Arsenal A late post today, courtesy of the nation’s northern favourite car park. Curiously enough, the result of a weekend’s football tournament not much further north than Hull itself. Close enough for them to be considered the local team. If Hull thought winning this fixture would accrue some psychological advantage for the FA Cup final, what will the manner of this defeat bring? They huffed as the wind puffed but Arsenal blew the home defences away with two stunning first half goals from Aaron Ramsey and Lukas Podolski. The German sealed victory with his…

  • FC Barcelona Transfermarkt - Will Barca Sell Mascherano this Summer?

    24 Apr 2014 | 11:37 pm
    With the temporary lifting of transfer ban imposed on Barca, there are too much speculation going on. The latest we have heard is the potential sale of Javier Mascherano. A few months ago all the fans could be up in arms against such a move. But at the current moment there sure will be conflicting ideas on their minds about this possibility. In any case this all will happen if our management does the stuff they are supposed to do - sign quality central defenders. Going by their track record, we could expect them to make a lot of noise about the possibility of signing a number of players,…

    Dani Alves future at Barca has been under constant speculation for the past one year. Some expect the club to cash in on a player who was the main stay to Barca's success but also is approaching 30. There is a school of thought that if we are going to make money out of Alves, then that moment would be right now. Barca fans are totally split on Alves. His form may have been bit patchy lately and his crosses has failed to reach the targets. But they do realize that his defensive fragility is due to the fact that he is getting stretched on the right with make shift central defenders alongside…

It's not the first time it has happened this season. There were pundits who pointed out why Pedro needs to come ahead of Neymar, especially in order to get the best out of Messi. I myself believed that it's not the presence of Neymar; it's the combination of Neymar and Cesc which is working against Barca and also Messi. But lately it has become very clear that to make these two great players work together will take some effort, something which…

John Swift headed a late winner for Chelsea which, on the balance of play, was harsh on Arsenal. What do you think can Abou play a part in run-in.

No matter how small their contribution may seem, there is a place for them in the soccer world, in the stadium of champions. The word “champion” is synonymous with excellence, winning and being the best. Champions are those individuals at the top of their game, the absolute best and are labeled “winners”. This is where I draw the line. To define champions as winners implies that everyone else is a loser. A champion is not necessarily someone who plays…

In the past it was the top 32 internationally ranked players that got a spot, and invites were only extended to proven professionals to fill out the bracket. According to www.usopen.org, this all changed in 2010 when the US Open debuted the US Open National Playoffs, a tournament that allows players to compete for the chance to qualify for a chance to play in this grand slam event.

Such systems are run through the use of either cameras or magnetic fields.

    FRISCO, TX — After two weeks of rest Blas Perez picked the best time to get his third goal of the season. In the 88th minute FC Dallas (5-1-1, 16 points) defender Stephen Keel headed down a long ball from Michel in the penalty box, Perez pounced on the loose ball to net giving FC Dallas a 2-1 win Saturday night over Toronto FC (3-3-0, 9 points). The goal was Dallas’ ninth goal of the season scored in the last 30 minutes of the match. Dallas put Toronto on their heels for the majority of the game as they earned a team-record 16 corner kicks. Issey Nakajima-Farran put the visitors on…

    The Famous 'Manny Road'

  • Dougie Freedman and the Great Bolton Con Job

    As the football season winds to a close, it appears that Bolton Wanderers have at last hit form.  This is in marked contrast to what was the club’s poorest start since before the Easter Bunny started doing his rounds. 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…

    When Is A Fan Not A Fan? Quentin X asks the question. Since I started writing about Bolton Wanderers, back in the heady days of 2008, I have been called a few things by people who have disagreed with my stance on certain Wanderers related topics. Some people think that having a £150 million (and rising) accounting black hole is a good thing because the chairman is a fan. I do not. Some people thought that Gary Megson was a messiah. I did not. And some people called me pond life. And the last time I looked, I didn’t have gills. However, I have never been lumped into the same bracket of…

    Manny Road doesn’t usually lavish affection on opposing teams, but for Doncaster Rovers an exception can be made.  It’s the results you see.  There haven’t been many competitive fixtures between the two clubs, just nine in the history of the World, but in the most recent games, Bolton have scored lots of goals and Donny nonny, sorry none. In January 2007, the Whites, then in the Premier League, journeyed to South Yorkshire for an FA Cup tie, with Rovers keen to show off their shiny new stadium.  Radio Five Live pitched up sensing an upset.  It didn’t happen.  With…

    Bolton fans trundling up the M62 to the game at Huddersfield today, may find themselves in surroundings that look familiar, for the much re-named John Smith’s Stadium bears a striking resemblance to the Reebok with its curly roof and overhead metal structure holding the place together. The similarities don’t stop there.  The 1920s was a golden period for the Wanderers with three FA Cup wins. The same applies to Huddersfield who secured three successive league championships – a feat that has never been bettered. The two clubs have notable individuals in common as well.  Former…

    Over the years, Bolton Wanderers have had some very capable captains. Nat Lofthouse, Roy Greaves, Gudni Bergsson and Kevin Davies to name but a few. Dammit, Harry Goslin led his team into an actual war and not a made up one where we all boo Jens Lehmann. So, when Dougie Freedman named Zat “Bag of” Knight as team captain in July, a few eyebrows were raised. First of all, and most importantly, over the past few seasons Knight has been the most consistently under performing player this side of Mario Jardel. Best known for regularly being beaten in the air by players more than a foot…

    And so it ends. Today, Manchester United announced the firing of David Moyes, after nine months in charge. Moyes and Manchester United have had an awful season, with Man United looking likely to finish in seventh place and miss out on Champions League football for the first time next season. Some Man United fans were opposed to Moyes from the beginning. They were wondering why he had been hired, a decision largely based on the recommendation of Sir Alex Ferguson, rather than one of European football’s bigger names. Others were prepared to give him a chance, but his popularity plummeted with…

    Barcelona will be allowed to sign players this summer as their appeal is taken under consideration. That doesn't mean Barca are in the clear though - so it's time to act quickly. The ban has not been lifted, but sensibly, it's been suspended. Barcelona were given a two-window ban from transferring in new players by FIFA due to cases involving the transfer of U18 players. The front office submitted an appeal that argued that the minors were taken care of correctly, and thus, the ban was unfair. While FIFA has not accepted this argument, they are suspending the ban pending a final decision.

    Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda has earned a ten game suspension after his ejection on Wednesday for having pine tar on his neck. There’s no immediate word on whether or not Pineda will appeal the suspension. This is funny to me, because using a foreign substance on the ball is something that seems to be widely accepted throughout the game. However, being as obvious as Pineda was about it is apparently a no-no, and earned him the suspension and the scorn of everyone around the league. It’s also funny to me that MLB hands Pineda a ten game suspension, which actually matters…

Regardless, it’s important that we continue to find ways to ensure that future generations won’t lose sight of Tillman’s initial sacrifice, as well the ultimate sacrifice which is so hard for many of us to swallow.

    Victory over Arsenal saw Everton move into fourth spot in the Premier League table, but a shock defeat to Crystal Palace helped the Gunners reclaim the final Champions League place.

Martinez succeeded Moyes at Goodison Park and he believes the Scot will have little trouble finding a new managerial position.

A lot of international friendlies are not competitive enough to be of benefit of teams, as well as being pretty boring to watch for paying fans and TV audiences.

  • Leeds United face uncertain future after Football League blocks takeover

    David Bolt
    24 Mar 2014 | 4:18 pm
    It was not so long ago that Leeds United were one of the most exciting teams in English football. Leeds were a team with a seemingly perfect mix of exciting products of the Leeds academy and players signed from other British clubs for what were, at the time at least, sizable fees. They seemed to be poised to be in a position to be challenging for the Premier League title in years to come. In 2001, they even reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. However, it soon became apparent that Leeds’ on-field performances had come at the cost of any sort of financial stability. Leeds were…

  • Why Diving Should Stay in Soccer

    Shane
    28 Oct 2013 | 1:46 pm
      Diving is perhaps the most frustrating aspect of soccer today, as seemingly great players fall to the ground untouched in an attempt at gaining an advantage over an opposing team. This problem is compounded by the fact that officials seem to award penalty kicks to the diver, rather than calling a foul for the act of diving. Despite the negative aspects of diving, however, it does provide some value for the sport as a whole. Separating the Good from the Great No, diving is not representative of greatness, but it is possible to use diving as a method of differentiating good players from…

Now both boys and girls are flocking to soccer in droves, with US Youth Soccer now reporting that it has over 3 million registered players, up from just 100,000 back in 1974.

When I played on the U.S. Team we were fortunate to have had a great nutritionist come talk to our team. Two things stood out the most to me. 1. The amount of calories I was eating wasn’t enough. 2.

A well formulated goal that seemed to come out of the blue for Madrid who were in a possession slump for the entire first half. Bayern’s first half statistics were absolutely miles ahead of Madrid as they kept over 75% of the ball, had more attempts at goal, and completed nearly triple the amount of passes then their opponents.

A battling defensive display meant that they thwarted a fluent Atletico attack that has scored 22 goals in their past ten games – and in doing so gave themselves the advantage going into the second leg at Stamford Bridge.  Mourinho was successful in stifling Diego Costa – deploying David Luiz in front of the back four to cut off any aerial…

    Liverpool windbag Brendan Rodgers has accused title rivals Chelsea and Manchester City of being “soulless corporate fuck stains.” The 41-year-old boss delivered the scathing assessment of his title rivals after administering a proverbial kick to City’s title testicles. He said: “We honestly believe that Chelsea and City are involved in the dark arts. “They are Darth Vader to our Luke Skywalker, as we were big in the 80s but haven’t done much since.” Amazingly, Rodgers then produced a loaded hand gun and used it to emphasise points during the rest of…

    United spare part Phil Neville reportedly denied knowing managerial buffoon David Moyes three times while on a night out in Manchester. A witness claimed that a group of City fans accosted Neville over United’s poor form and in particular their incompetent manager. The witness said: “A group of drunk lads got quite physical with Phil, one even said ‘we’re gonna shag you to death’. “Neville was obviously fearing for his life, and when the crowd brought up Moyes, Phil screamed ‘I don’t know who you’re talking about’. “He kept…

    Ego centric footballing genius Ronaldo was conceived after a blouse, acquired from an unnamed big girl, burst mid coitus, according to his family physician. Doctor Pedro Smarti Pants has insisted that this information is correct, despite the fact that he has sold his story to feed his own gigantic crack habit. He said: “Ronaldo’s father was an infamous box jockey who was allergic to the rubber variety of contraceptives. “Therefore he would wrap absolutely anything around his dick trunk before dipping his wife from a standing position. “Does this explain why Ronaldo is…

    Charismatic loser Arsene Wenger has confirmed all his strikers are to have their dicks burnt off in front of a group of youth players whose enthusiasm for the game is being intentionally drilled out of them. The Arsenal manager insists that everything at the club is geared towards his own twisted perception of normality. He said: “I have no idea how or when I became a sporting deviant obsessed with underachieving. Some people say it’s when I started slamming crystal meth, but I think the origins are far more cerebral than that. “Of course, like any addict I have no real…

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:59 am
    Brendan Rodgers has masterminded a surprise Premier League title challenge this season, and after a weekend of results firmly in the Reds’ favour, Liverpool appear on the cusp of a truly special achievement. For many fans and neutrals, the Merseyside club weren’t even in the conversation for fourth place at the start of the season. Tottenham Hotspur, with £100 million worth of talent and Erik Lamela on board, were set to battle Arsenal for the final Champions League spot; Everton and Liverpool, being propped up by just a few key players each, were leagues behind. But inside the…

Drill 1.  Structure: -Set up the area as above suiting the needs of your players and numbers available.

It’s coming to the end of Arsene Wenger’s 18th season at the helm of Arsenal, and it feels like his empire he has built up is steadily, year-on-year crumbling at an alarming rate.

    Abou Diaby was able to complete 46 minutes of action as he joined the U-21 side against Chelsea last night. The French midfielder who has not played in over 13 months joined the U-21 side as they faced Chelsea U21 at the Emirates Stadium. The Blues won the match by 2-1. Diaby suffered a knee ligament injury in March 2013. Diaby could well make a surprise appearance in any of the remaining games this season.

Luis Suarez was a major target of Arsenal last summer but was denied a move to the Emirates by Liverpool. The decision would however be of advantage to Bredan Rodgers side as Suarez has scored 30 goals so far and on the verge of winning the Premier League with his club. The form of the Uruguayan this season could well mean he could be out of Liverpool for a very good price. Reports suggest Real Madrid’s president, Florentino…

      In the aftermath of the David Moyes sacking by Manchester United, the invariable carousel of names to replace the fiery Scotsman has begun in earnest. And while the list of candidates is quite possibly of sufficient length, and considerable breadth in its variety, there is perhaps one more name that could, and to my mind should, be thrown in to the hat, at the very least.

    Michael Lorenzoni
    24 Apr 2014 | 2:53 am
    Towards the end of David Moyes’ time at the helm of the Red Devils, it became inevitable that he would eventually be replaced as a result of his disappointing first season in charge. Moyes came to a club on the back of a record-breaking 20th Premier League title. What coach is expected to reciprocate that success in their first year at such a prestigious club, especially after a manager of Sir Alex Ferguson’s stature? In saying that, anything less than a title-winning season would be a downgrade from last year’s results, but that is exactly what cost Moyes his job at…

You can talk for days and weeks on end about the reputation the city has got over the years. From stinking of fish, to being a ‘sh*t town in Grimsby’, there’s rarely been little to celebrate for Hull. The same can be said for the football club. For many years, Hull City AFC lay dormant as a sleeping giant and flirted with relegation from the football league towards the late stages…

    Ex-Manchester United coach René Meulensteen has slammed David Moyes by claiming the Scot “ignored the advice” of his staff and underestimated his position in charge of Manchester United, saying these faults lead to his sacking on Tuesday.  Meulensteen claimed that Moyes “opted to put his own plans in place” instead of following the advice of his assistant managers, and described the result of that decision, which leaves United in seventh place in the Premier League outside of a European qualification spot, “too crazy for words.” The 50-year-old, who was…

    With Moyes finally leaving the club here are some names circling around to take the United job. (Odds from Paddy Power) Louis Van Gaal: At 9/4 to be the next United manager he seems to be the most likely. He has already said that he will retire unless he gets a job opportunity in the Premier League and he has already been linked with Tottenham. However, after taking a while to decide on where he will go it makes me think that he would prefer United over Tottenham. He is also supposedly going to make the decision on his future this week. In my opinion Van Gaal would be one of the best options…

Evans: 4- Having just come back from injury he had an okay performance, but he should have done better with Everton’s second goal.

If we are to have any chance of top 4 this is a must win game. Here is what team I would play if I was manager. 👇 De Gea is an obvious choice and I wanted to play Jones and Smalling together at CB, but with Rafael injured I couldn’t so I paired Vidic up with Smalling instead. I would play Buttner at LB because with Moyes in charge it looks like Evra will be going and Buttner has been playing…

    This might be my most controversial post yet but here is why I would not sell Tom Cleverley. Firstly at the age of 24, Cleverley is still young and can still improve. What I respect most of Cleverley is that every single game he always gives it his all and he always tries his best. Bebe who is currently on loan at F.C. Paços de Ferreira is only 1 year younger than Cleverley and seems to have been far lazier than him as well, yet people still want to give him a chance because he’s done okay on loan. Cleverley did well when he went on loan. Cleverley has also come through the youth system at…
