  • Whether or not Saturday is his last game, Thierry Henry will play like it is

    The New York Red Bulls' Thierry Henry believes his side will continue to fight back in the second leg, despite losing 1-2 to the New England Revolution at Red Bull Arena. This isn't really how it's going to end, is it? Can this possibly be how the curtain comes down on Thierry Henry's legendary career, with one final game on a cold, plastic field inside a half-empty NFL stadium? Barring a near-miracle -- and we'll soon find out if Henry has another miracle left in him -- it could end exactly like that Saturday in Southeastern Massachusetts, what with Henry's New…

Graham Parker talks with his MLS MVP nominee Robbie Keane about his excellent season, telling Gyasi Zardes to watch Lionel Messi, why the CONCACAF Champions League is only good if you win it, why he hates artificial turf and what keeps him hungry.

    BARCELONA, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen will have an operation to correct a thigh problem next week and is expected to be out for four to five months, the La Liga club said on Thursday. The Belgium centre back, who sustained the injury playing against Russia at the World Cup in June, has yet to make his competitive debut after joining from Arsenal in August and his signing has become something of an embarrassment for the Barca board. "Thomas Vermaelen will undergo surgery ... next Tuesday in Finland," Barca said on their website (www.fcbarcelona.es). ...

The Albert Einstein Hospital had issued a short statement saying Pele, 74, had been moved to a special care unit after suffering "clinical instability." The hospital did not provide details. Jose Fornos Rodrigues, the former player's personal aide, said Pele was "completely fine" and the move was primarily to…

  • Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young: We’re going for the title

    Despite their shaky form this season, Manchester United currently occupy a spot in the top four of the Premier League. However, this lofty position wouldn’t satisfy previous United teams and it’s not satisfying this incarnation, claims Ashley Young. The United winger is quoted by the Mirror saying that the club’s aim is still the title and that Louis van Gaal has instilled a new belief in the squad since taking over as manager: “I think the manager has said obviously we want to break that top four. “But you know players and staff at the club, we want to win the league…

    The Arsenal injury list is piling up high following Jack Wilshere’s injury at the weekend in the game against Manchester United. Wilshere had to undergo an operation today and will be out for the next three months. As this Sky Sports graphic shows, it’s a problem they can do without. Nine senior members of the Arsenal squad are currently sidelined. These include perennially injured Abou Diaby and long-term absentee Theo Walcott as well as Yaya Sanogo, who scored for the club against Dortmund last night. It looks Arsene Wenger will have to consider bringing in players during the…

    The race for the 24th expansion slot is coming down to the wire. Or at least the wire in 2014. MLS confirmed on Wednesday that they will have three meetings with Las Vegas, Sacramento and Minnesota representatives on Thursday. The three groups will make their pitches on Thursday in New York with league executives. According to the league, following Thursday’s meeting, future expansion will be discussed further at the MLS Board of Governors meeting, set to be held on December 6. No word on anyone from San Antonio getting a shot at presenting to the league but this tells me that they…
  • Thoughts on the upcoming CBA discussions

    18 Nov 2014 | 9:45 am
    I remember the last CBA discussion back in 2010. Back then the players had a lot of momentum and things that they wanted changed moving forward. Now that agreement is set to expire at the end of the year which means a new round of discussion is ahead of us here. I struggle with figuring out what exactly the players have to debate about this time around. In 2010, it was all about getting some sort of movement system in place for players out of contract to move around the league easier. In the end the process was a Re-Entry Draft, something that I would argue that players half-won on in the end…

So here we go. Coach of the Year – Ben Olsen (D.C. United) This one was a big struggle for me.

    For the last several months, the MLS expansion talk has mostly been about Sacramento and Minnesota. Sometimes Las Vegas would sneak into that discussion but do we really take that one serious? That left San Antonio as the odd man out in some cases. But all that could change here shortly. The San Antonio Business Journal is reporting that owner Gordon Hartman has potentially lined up more financial backers to help his push for a MLS club in the Alamo City. Hartman has reportedly gotten a group of Japanese businessmen to invest in his club, which could potentially be enough backing to help go…

    I'm happy for Robbie Rogers. I know I can never fully realize what he went through, hiding his true self for years and years, fearing a lack of acceptance in the profession he loved, but it seems like it would be an enormous relief to finally be true to who you really are. That big step of coming out for Rogers came along with his withdrawal from professional soccer, but he eventually returned to the game, playing for the LA Galaxy. Now he plays professionally, has his own book, business and boyfriend. His life seems pretty good. Rogers, who in my experience has always been…

    The sight of Olivier Giroud paying crumpled on the turf, his face wrinkled with pain, fingers snapping in anguish, is not uncommon. Despite his fits of pained pique, Giroud is generally a physically robust player, rarely injured and his one sustained injury during his Arsenal career has seen a miraculously early recovery. So miraculous in fact that nobody thought it worthwhile to ink his name onto Arsenal’s squad sheet for the Champions League group stage. So when Giroud collapsed in agony at Goodison Park in August, it’s fair to say most of us still celebrating his stoppage time…

    There’s mixed news on the injury front going into tonight’s Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund. The good: Laurent Koscielny is back in the squad and, if he’s back in the squad then he’s got to be in contention for a start. Having been out since October 5th, and with the manager indicating last week he was still a few weeks away, to thrust him back into action early is a bit of a surprise. However, and I know this might sound naive, you’d like to think they wouldn’t be taking any unnecessary risks with him. If he’s feeling good enough to…

    The heroics of Aaron Ramsey’s 2013-14 season need little repeating. Quite aside from the winning goal in the FA Cup final, he grew into one of the finest box-to-box midfielders in Europe. A team which contains high energy players who can score and create, maintain high levels of defensive awareness, impressive physical power, and who possess understated finesse will probably achieve most of its desires. Last season, Aaron Ramsey was all of those things stuffed into one wonderful package. It was expected that he would continue this season in much the same way. Perhaps the goals would slow…

The team finished third in Group D and left Brazil hanging their heads in shame.

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.

    When Brendan Rodgers first became Liverpool boss two-and-a-half-years ago, although results were inconsistent, his progressive, possession-based philosophy was continually praised. It was viewed as modern and vibrant yet befitting of the club’s ancient values – reminiscent of the definitive give-and-go’s of the 1970s and 1980s – but this season it’s manifested into something dangerously dogmatic. Unless Rodgers accepts his Liverpool side must begin taking a more balanced approach, the Reds will soon be walking in the footsteps of another top Premier League club forever…

With the Old Trafford outfit now fourth in the Premier League table, one could argue it’s already proving good value for money. But could United have gone a step better? Perhaps this select XI combining the club’s leading stars and rumoured…

    Once Bundesliga giants, Northern Derby rivals Werder Bremen and Hamburg are now slugging at the bottom is a post from: Just Football By Terry Duffelen These are strange times for football in North Germany. The region’s traditional giants, HSV and SV Werder Bremen, are in decline and supporters of both clubs are living in the shadow of the monied but plastic Wolfsburg and perhaps more embarrassingly the traditionally much smaller, Hannover 96. This weekend’s Northern Derby between the two clubs at HSV’s Imtech Arena throws the current landscape into sharp focus because what is…

    Messi is the greatest! Lionel Messi makes history, becomes La Liga all-time top scorer is a post from: Just Football Every once in a while, a player comes a long who changes history. He’s done it. Lionel Messi is the greatest, and of that there can now be no doubt. After nearly a month stuck on 250 goals in La Liga, Messi finally beat Telmo Zarra’s record, one that stood for over 50 years, banging in a hat-trick against Sevilla in a 5-1 victory for Barcelona at Camp Nou to register his 251st, 252nd and 253rd goals. The hat-trick made Messi the top scorer in La Liga history,…

    Leeeeeeeet's play Lucho!! Two very good performances (and wins) in a row have put Barcelona in a good mood again. Everyone's happy (except Vermaelen, who will not play for a while) and the team has overcome adversity and put together two exciting and encouraging displays of footballing. On Sunday, there's another tough test in La Liga, as the Blaugrana travel to the always tough Mestalla stadium, home of the fourth-ranked Valencia CF, a team that has not only scored a lot of points in the standings, but they've also played extremely well, though lately that hasn't exactly been the case.

The history books will record this as the game that saw Lionel Messi become the all-time top scorer Champions League but the record should also note that it was a match in which APOEL showed the world how not to play against Barcelona.

Whelan later apologised for the comments by insisting he was misquoted, but the matter resulted in widespread condemnation.

    The Belgium international has come in for some stinging criticism this season for a number of unconvincing performances and his error led allowed Ludogorets to take the lead in the third minute of Wednesday's game. While the Reds hit back through Rickie Lambert, Rodgers is concerned that Mignolet's confidence will have been knocked by another error. "Hopefully it is not an issue with his confidence. It was a disappointment for the team because we wanted a solid start and to go behind so early was very frustrating," Rodgers said. Jordan Henderson put Liverpool ahead before half-time, but the…

    Billy Tate
    23 Nov 2014 | 11:10 pm
    Liverpool are in a bad place right now and the pressure is mounting on Brendan Rodgers. The 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace was the lowest point in a poor opening to the season and there is a growing sense among some supporters that Brendan Rodgers is not cut out for the job.  The Liverpool manager has made some poor decisions but he has earned the right to turn this ship around. For a long time there has been a sentiment among the wider football public that Rodgers is a charlatan. He is full of grand quotes but lacks any real substance to back up his words, they say. The opening games of…
  • Getting vertical: How vertical passing can improve Liverpool

    Jeremy Farrell
    7 Nov 2014 | 7:53 pm
    Last season Liverpool tore their opponents apart on the counter attack. Luis Suárez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling where the most feared attacking trio in the league. A hallmark of Liverpool’s play  was fast transitions and incisive vertical passing. This season, along with a formation change and different players their game is much slower and their passing is much more predictable and lateral. What is a vertical pass? Vertical passing means a forward or backward pass (from goal to goal) as opposed to a horizontal pass (from touchline to touchline). Vertical…
  • A case for Kolo Toure: Why he deserves more chances for Liverpool

    Billy Tate
    4 Nov 2014 | 6:00 pm
    The Liverpool line up announced before kick off against Real Madrid was genuinely surprising with the starting XI consisting of a few players who had barely played at all this season. Liverpool were about to play the reigning European Champions in their own backyard and they’d sent out a side that many would expect to start a Carling Cup game. And yet this side, marshalled at the back by Kolo Toure managed to keep Madrid to a 1-0 scoreline and kept arguably the world’s best player – Cristiano Ronaldo – at bay. Liverpool began the game well enough, keeping possession…

    Liverpool travel to the Bernabéu as real underdogs on Tuesday night. The Reds have started the season terribly, scoring only 15 goals in 13 Premier League and Champions League games while conceding 18 in the same amount. Real Madrid on the other hand have been almost unstoppable. Los Blancos have scored an astonishing 47 goals in 13 games, something that should leave the likes of Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson having nightmares. Madrid are unbeaten in seven league games and undefeated in the Champions League with a notable 3-1 victory over domestic rivals…

    1 Nov 2014 | 8:07 pm
    Yesterday’s performance against Newcastle was bad. Liverpool struggled to create any real chances and their defense continued with their comedy of errors as Alberto Moreno gifted the ball to Ayoze Perez after Glen Johnson had lost the ball cheaply up field. Newcastle were coming off an incredible week. This win made it 4 wins in a row including the scalps of Spurs, City and Liverpool. Not bad for a manager whose fans were so over him they set up a website called sackpardew.com to get him fired. Newcastle defended very deeply with 10 men behind the ball and counter attacked with…

    CSKA Moscow beat Manchester City away from home? Really? Yes, even I couldn’t have imagined that. You don’t become Russian champions by being a bad team, but CSKA really have had a rough time of it at Europe’s top table of late. Six defeats out of your past seven UEFA Champions League games is nothing to write home about, and everyone was expecting the Russians to get rolled over in England. Just how wrong we were. The Muscovites did come into this game with a bit of confidence though. Despite falling to Zenit 0-1 in a Russian top of the table clash on the weekend they have been in…

In the past fortnight they have experienced something of a resurgence, defeating Almeria 0-1 and then on Sunday they achieved what only one side, champions Atletico Madrid, before them have managed so far, they beat Sevilla. It was a frenetic game in the San Mames, with chances frequent for both teams but Aritz…

    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…

Since taking over from Bob Bradley in 2011, the German has been fairly successful with 33 victories in 59 games. However, when you take a look at the level of competition Klinsmann’s men go up against, the German’s record becomes less impressive. With that said, it would be harsh to…
  • Are Traditional Stadium Names a Thing of the Past?

    What’s in a name? To some, it is no more than random words made up out of random letters. To others, it is a symbol of everything that the name stands for. When it comes to their stadium, most football fans are surely in the latter group, but how does that compare with the number of teams optimising profits by selling the names of their stadiums to businesses worldwide? This week, Rotherham United fans were told that from 26th December onwards, the New York Stadium would be known as the AESSEAL New York Stadium. Their opponents that day will be Huddersfield Town, who themselves play at…

  • MOTD: Arsenal 2-0 Borussia Dortmund

    Alex Morgan
    26 Nov 2014 | 8:20 pm
    Arsenal looked in form today, to put it simply. At times, they played the football that Arsene Wenger is trying to achieve – particularly in the second half they created chance after chance and could have easily won by more. Moreover, it was an important result against one of the best sides in Europe. It really was a good result and performance from the Gunners. However, it carries an underlying feeling of disappointment at the same time. It was such a great, and necessary win, but it only gave them the bare minimum of success – qualifying to the Champions League knockout stages…

    25 Nov 2014 | 9:34 pm
    Of course Sergio Aguero was Manchester City’s hat-trick hero. Down 2-1, he score twice more to give City a vital Champions League win. Considering the importance of the UCL to City, it was a re-run of their famous title-winning comeback on the last day of the Premier League season in 2011/2012. Of course it was Aguero who won and then score City’s early penalty, and then both comeback goals. Now, they are still bottom of UCL Group E, but with a win against Roma they are all but into the knockout stages for the second year running. But of all people, the last person one would expect to…

    Manuel Pellegrini was hired by Manchester City specifically to take the club to the next level. His predecessor, Roberto Mancini, had achieved domestic success with the club but Pellegrini was hired on the basis that he had the experience to turn Manchester City into a European superpower. In just their two previous Champions League campaigns, they crashed out at the group stages in what was considered laughing stock due to City’s spending power. And in his first season – last season – he was a success. Even with luck stacked up against them, having drawn eventual winners…

    As the MLS Cup final nears, it also seems increasingly likely that Thierry Henry’s New York Red Bulls career is as well, with his New York side having lost 2-1 at home in the first leg of their MLS Cup semifinal draw with New England Revolution. They now need at least two goals away in the second to turn the tie around, all without a suspended Bradley Wright-Phillips, their goalscorer tonight. Henry has seemed to play his last home game, and it wasn’t a happy nor night representative of his stay in New York, with this season reportedly set to be his last at the club. Furthermore,…

    In the end, it was a typical match for everybody. For Jack Wilshere, he played quite well, missed one great chance and then limped off injured early in the second half. For Manchester United, they didn’t play well, but won with two late goals. And for Arsenal, they dominated much of the match, but of course, didn’t finish until it was far too late. Their fans left scratching their heads again, wondering, as one Arsenal fan put it, how they managed to lose to “a team like (United)”. Admittedly, it’s a hard question to answer. Arsenal were certainly good enough to…

    We maintained our very impressive form against our rivals, Arsenal with our first taste of victory on the road this season at the 7th attempt. It will have given Louis Van Gaal a lot of satisfaction to hold off the early Arsenal pressure in the first half and score two second half goals to seal the game despite a nervous end to the game. Arsene Wenger’s record against the big boys in the league is despairing to say the least and even ‘The Chosen One’ last year gained 4 points out of a possible 6 against Arsenal.

    Juan Mata’s introduction in the second half sparked United into some life as his goal from range took a slight deflection to give us a slender lead over struggling Crystal Palace. Juan Mata was one of the few shining lights from our abysmal season last year as the former Chelsea midfielder went on a scoring spree to finish the season. His winner against Palace was his 9th goal in his last 15 appearances which is a very good return for the attacking midfielder. Louis Van Gaal described his start as United manager as ‘lousy’ but many of the spectators would probably put several other…

A red card to Chris Smalling in the first half made proceedings extremely tough and we eventually succumbed to a second half strike by Sergio Aguero to lose 1-0. Despite being a man lighter, we finished the second half very brightly and were unfortunate not to grab a leveller through Angel di Maria or Marouane Fellaini.

He was discovered at age 15 by United scout Bob Bishop who sent manager Matt Busby the simple telegram stating, "I think I've found you a genius."Despite struggling with home sickness in his first few years in…

By many accounts the Jamaican was a well rounded footballer…

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic Surprisingly Excludes A Certain Player From His Best Eleven

    Iconic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic recently picked his best ever starting eleven, which included many of his current and former team mates from PSG, Juventus, and Barcelona. Having played for some of the best teams in Europe, Zlatan had a large player pool to select from when making his eleven. With each selection, he gives the player a unique nickname that describes their style of play. The nick name he gave himself is classic Ibrahimovic. The only surprising exclusion from that team would probably be Cristiano Ronaldo, who many regard as the top player in the world at the moment. Must mean…

    Brendan Rodgers has come to the defense of his captain, Steven Gerrard, after fans have begun to vent their anger towards the Liverpool skipper’s wayward form. Gerrard has been the center of criticism for many Liverpool fans, who want to see the iconic midfielder dropped from the starting eleven in favour of a player that can offer more protection to the defense.

Mourinho’s men put on a masterclass yesterday against Roberto Di Matteo’s Schalke side, beating them 5-0 at Veltins Arena in what the Chelsea boss described as one of his sides most complete matches. “I don’t remember Chelsea playing in this way away from home.

  • With or Without Rooney: The Englishman’s Career Hangs in the Balance

    Siyang Xu
    16 Nov 2014 | 12:50 pm
    As the weeks go on, it is becoming increasingly obvious that Louis van Gaal’s long-term plan at Old Trafford is to evolve the team into a 4-3-3 system. It is a formation that the Dutchman has tried and trusted at previous clubs, and whilst he may feel that Manchester United’s current pool of players might suit an alternative system for now, shown by his experimental dabbles with 3-5-2 and 4-4-2 diamond earlier this season, it is more than likely that van Gaal sees his 4-3-3 as the way forward. Whilst the 4-4-2 diamond (known to some as a 4-1-2-1-2) has provided some success for United…

    At the start of this season, you would have forgiven the average Southampton fan for being a little more than pessimistic about the club’s chances. Losing the spine of their team that wowed the Premier League at times last season shocked fans of the South Coast side. Having finished 8th, just one place below the 2012/13 champions Manchester United, there was the obvious possibility that the big clubs would come calling for their star names. But despite preparing themselves for a mass exodus, even the most ardent Saints fans would have been fearing the worst after manager Mauricio…

The Argentine has scored over 80 goals in all competitions for City since his arrival in 2011. He has also won two Premier League titles and a League Cup, but the only major club championship missing from his resume is a Champions League. Aguero, who signed a new five-year contract in August, said: “Not only will I stay the four years to make it eight here in total, I’ll stay beyond that – until we win it.” It is quite a bold statement…

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!

Let’s do the maths… if we assume that 13 points is a likely haul from 10 games then we can assume that all United fans can look forward to is approximately 52 points at the end of the season. Just to give you an idea, last year 52 points would have you finishing in 9th place…

In the run up to Christmas it’s getting increasingly obvious that our defence, particularly caused by the lack of depth with Billy Jones and Patrick van Aanholt injured, alone is not enough to rely on picking up points.[[content.top]]Poyet’s post-match comments gave the impression that focus has been on ‘back-to-basics’ in an attempt to eradicate errors. However, a better side than…

    Over Liverpool’s premier league campaign this season, nobody has been impressed by their efforts. If anything, fans could be happy at the determination of Adam Lallana and the speed of Alberto Moreno but aside from that, very little to be happy about. A usual norm for Liverpool fans is the firmly standing figure that is Steven Gerrard. The one man they can rely on and feel safe having the team under his control. It is only of recent times that Gerrard has been criticised, sometimes wrongly but sometimes, it has to be said, there has been fuel behind those views that everyone could spot.

    The Blues going for goal number four here aware that a 3-0 lead can be a dangerous one in the @ChampionsLeague. #CFCLive — Chelsea FC (@chelseafc) November 25, 2014   It’s not only one of the most exciting on-the-pitch rivalries, but the Chelsea social media team have gone one step further taking a clear shot at Arsenal and their 3-3 draw against Anderlecht after being 3 goals to the good. Lets hope this starts a war of words between the two accounts as it’s always entertaining when that happens, but as of today, Chelsea are one to the good.

    Liverpool’s downbeat players after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace The problems just get bigger and bigger for Liverpool. Just six months after their last visit to Crystal Palace, in which their title dreams were completely destroyed in a six goal thriller, they returned to Selhurst Park on Sunday and produced a limp, desperate and below par performance in a damaging 3-1 defeat that only amplifies the Reds’ worrying situation. This was a fourth defeat in a row in all competitions for Brendan Rodgers’ side, leaving last season’s runners-up with its worst start to a…

      Marco Reus has turned himself into one of the world’s best players since re-joining Borussia Dortmund in 2012. Electric pace, a keen eye for goal, beautiful skills, a set piece specialist and a fashionable haircut sought after by teenage boys around Europe. Marco Reus has quickly become one of the hottest properties in European football. After securing a move back to his boyhood club Borussia Dortmund in 2012, the 25-year-old attacking midfielder has blossomed into a fantastic all round player.

    The crowds came to England to watch the Champion’s League, Manchester City versus Bayern Munich. The first 10 minutes of the game seemed to go well for the visiting side, them completing almost 100 more passes than City. But in the 20th minute, Medhi Benatia took down Sergio Agüero in the penalty area and he earned a straight red. Agüero wasn’t about to miss that opportunity. 1-0. With Bayern down to 10 men things didn’t look like they were going to go too well for them until this season’s new signing Xabi Alonso scored a free kick just before half time. He shot it…

    Fernando Torres is continuing exactly what he did at Chelsea while he’s with AC Milan. He has put only 1 ball in his opponent’s net in the 10 games he has played for the Italian club. It came in a 2-2 draw against Empoli. Yeah. Torres has hardly even had any SHOTS. He says that his success at Liverpool was due to the fact that there were creative midfielders at the club, the most prominent of which were Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso. Torres will have to perform at Milan or he could see most of his game beginning with a seat on the side. Thanks bleacherreport.com for this image.

He is the current Bayern Munich manager and formerly coached Barcelona.

Examples of Pep not doing well is the thrashing at Home in the 2013-2014 UEFA Champions League Semi-Finals against Real Madrid. They lost 0-4 to Real Madrid.
