    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers rues the lack of confidence in his side following their 3-1 drubbing by Crystal Palace. LONDON -- Crystal Palace in May signaled the death of a dream. This time, Liverpool's reality check was perhaps more brutal. Back then, the Reds and Brendan Rodgers could celebrate exceeding expectations, but this result demonstrated this will be a season on a rather different edge. Three straight Premier League losses in a row, four in total; results that can only point to a mounting crisis, and the performances during those matches spell out a yet bleaker picture.

    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

    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…

    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…

If he wins and is at the ceremony, I'm sure he'll give a nice speech in Spanish. Just remember, LD, "deservo" is not a word in Spanish. One of the awards, I noticed, is best Tweet by an athlete.

    There’s nothing like an easy game to get you back into the swing of things after an Interlull, but then regardless of the Interlull there’s nothing like an easy game for us this season. Perhaps facing Manchester United might be the thing that really focuses us, because they’re a team against whom we’ve really struggled in recent seasons. The last time we won was back in 2011 when an Aaron Ramsey goal ensured three points – and interestingly that came during an abysmal run of form, far worse that we’ve experienced this season. We struggled against them last…

    Cardiff City owner denounces racism rearing its head at Wigan. Vincent Tan and Malky Mackay in happier times. Quote of the Day “This is a racist chairman hiring a racist manager. I hope that stops at two racists in Wigan, not snowballing to 2,000 or 20,000 racists in Wigan.” Revenge is a dish best served cold, they say and in the case of Cardiff City owner, Vincent Tan, it is also a dish served as often as possible. The Cardiff owner sacked Malky Mackay last year, but he was not finished with him and when was alooked set to be appointed by Crystal Palace, the Malaysian businessman…

    No threat to players life but risk of recurrence without surgery.Roma’s Brazilian defender Leandro Castan will undergo neurosurgery next month to resolve “a congenital vascular alteration in his brain”. The 28-year-old has not played since September, when he was substituted at half-time in the 1-0 win away to Empoli after complaining of acute dizziness. Medical tests later confirmed a “cavernoma”, which is a cluster of abnormal blood vessels that puts pressure on the brain. “Although the cavernoma does not represent a threat to the player’s life – indeed, he is currently in…

    Partnering with a non-profit organization is a great way to connect with your community. However it can get challenging. When working with a non-profit, know what will truly help their cause. Listen carefully, as most will not assert themselves aggressively. For example, collecting canned goods for a food pantry might seem to be helpful, but finding transportation and distribution for the goods could become more of a hassle (and more costly!) than a cash donation to the organization. Most non-profit organizations could use donations more efficiently than the tangible items that are donated at…

Some had been coming to games the entire year, more to just a game here and there, and what seemed to be the majority were the fans for the afternoon.

    Paul Pogba has never been shy at proclaiming his own talent but it seems the Juventus midfielder is finally living up to his undoubted potential. Released by Manchester United when aged 19, there were fears his name would be the latest added to the long list of teen prodigies who were on the scrapheap by their early 20s after failing to make the grade. Pogba has had to take a step back on his own carefully-planned career progression ladder and learned from the setback.

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.

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.

    It’s the footballing equivalent of Del Boy falling through the service hatch. Except there’s nothing remotely funny about Arsenal’s timing. The poorest Manchester United side in a generation pitched up at The Emirates without an away win all season. They rolled with the punches, rode their luck, struck a low blow with Kieran Gibbs own goal before Wayne Rooney finished them off with a sucker punch as full-time approached. Three points went begging and having been ridiculed and lambasted, Louis Van Gaal has somehow steered his ship into the top four. That they are only two…

    13 Oct 2014 | 4:41 am
    Sunday was an intriguing day for fans of Bolton Wanderers. In the morning, talk was of Daniel Taylor’s piece in the Guardian that covered disastrous transfer dealings, the undue influence of agent Mark Curtis, incompetent financial management and the recent court case which so damaged the reputation of the club. It neatly summarised articles that have appeared on this site over the past three years. Attention was deflected in the afternoon with the appointment of Neil Lennon as new manager. Lennon’s arrival has been greeted positively on the whole, apart from a few meat heads who…
  • Goodbye Dougie Freedman. It Wasn’t Nice Knowing You

    4 Oct 2014 | 3:32 am
    At last Bolton Wanderers have ceased to delay the inevitable and dispensed with the services of Dougie Freedman.   The sacking is long overdue. 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…

    30 Sep 2014 | 11:53 pm
    In March 1967 a Nigerian labourer took forgery to its limit and some way beyond.  Whilst working on a building site in Lagos, he altered his pay cheque from £9.40 to read £622,000,009.40.   In his splendid Book of Heroic Failures, Stephen Pile notes that the fraud was entirely successful right up to the moment when the labourer tried to cash it. Reading the full judgement from the court case involving football agent Tony McGill and Bolton Wanderers that ended last week, one encounters the same comical incompetence and dishonesty.  Except in this instance it paid off. McGill failed in…

    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,…

    Arsenal 1-2 Manchester United – Game in 10 Tweets is a post from: Just Football Manchester United fired themselves into the Premier League top four after a lucky 2-1 win against Arsenal at the Emirates. A Kieran Gibbs own goal and a Wayne Rooney strike were enough for Louis Van Gaal’s side to secure the three points. The home side dominated for the majority and, despite a late goal from Olivier Giroud, they will be bitterly disappointed to take nothing from the game. Injury woes continued for Manchester United when Luke Shaw went down with an ankle knock after seven minutes. While it…

Arsenal’s annual injury crisis came early this year as key first-team regulars Mathieu Debuchy, Laurent Koscielny, and Mesut Ozil (among others) have missed substantial time.

    A detailed, player-by-player breakdown of Barcelona's commanding La Liga victory over Sevilla. Claudio Bravo 6.9 Minutes played: 90 Touches: 28 Passes: 18 Pass Accuracy: 89 Shots Faced: 0 Saves Made: 0 Clearances: 0 Bostjan says: 6.5 This won’t be one of Bravo’s favorite games as he let in a goal without facing a single shot. But those things happen, just ask Victor Valdes against Arsenal in 2011, however, the problem I had with the goal was that, even though he was hung out to dry by the right side of the defense, he reacted poorly to Vitolo’s cross. It was a ball that he should’ve…

    In this editorial, Xoel Càrdenas pays tribute to Lionel Messi, as Leo is the new goal-scoring king in the history of La Liga. FC Barcelona returned from the international break with an outstanding 5-1 win against Sevilla at the Camp Nou on Saturday night: a night that belonged to Lionel Messi. Lionel Messi reached history in the 21st minute, as a free kick by the Argentina was beautifully over the Sevilla wall and past a reaching Beto for the golazo and the 1-0 lead.

    Lionel Messi has broken the record for most goals scored in the Spanish League 51 minutes. That's how long Lionel Messi and Telmo Zarra were tied at the top of the all-time La Liga goalscorers list. With the pressure of "the hunt" now behind him Messi was able to continue the game in a more calm manner, and that immediately showed on the pitch. Messi was buzzing around the net and in the 72nd minute the Argentine put Zarra in his rear-view mirror, scoring goal number 252 by tapping the ball into the back of the net.

    Jake Livermore, facing Spurs for the first time since he left White Hart Lane for the KC Stadium, opened the scoring with a low drive early on. The game changed on the dismissal of Gaston Ramirez – Southampton’s on-loan attacking midfielder kicked out petulantly – soon after the interval. Harry Kane converted a rebound to equalise from the fine free-kick of Christian Eriksen, who went on to net an excellent winner in the final minute of normal time. With the victory, Mauricio Pochettino’s climb into the top half of the Premier League, just two points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester…

    One newspaper reported on Sunday that a number of players were unhappy with the 65-year-old's management style, as Palace struggled to replicated the form they showed under Tony Pulis last season, but Warnock was buoyed by the determination they showed to overcome Liverpool at Selhurst Park. Rickie Lambert opened the scoring for the visitors after just two minutes, but Dwight Gayle levelled for the Eagles then Joe Ledley and Mile Jedinak netted in the last 12 minutes to lift Palace out of the relegation zone.

Liverpool have now lost their last four Premier League matches, their worst run since the Rafael Benitez era, and lie in 12th place in the table.

Rooney added a second late on with a cool finish after Angel Di Maria led a United counter-attack which exploited the huge space Arsenal’s gung-ho approach provided. Olivier Giroud came off the bench to give Arsene Wenger’s side hope with a thumping left-foot strike in stoppage time but United held on for their first away win of the season.

Hazard doubled the lead on 25 minutes after Baggies' goalkeeper Ben Foster could only help his effort into the net. The visitors task became a near-impossible one after Claudio Yacob was dismissed just three minutes later for a reckless two-footed challenge on Costa. Chelsea served notice of their attacking intentions when John Terry forced Foster into a point-blank save after four minutes. The hosts poured forward and their dominance paid off on 11 minutes,…

  • 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…

    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.

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…

    1 Nov 2014 | 1:57 am
    There has been much discussion about Brendan Rodgers’ record in the transfer market over the past few weeks after another Summer where signings haven’t quite hit the heights supporters were hoping for. Rodgers has a gross spend of over £200 million since his arrival. When you factor in player sales like Suárez’s that figure is much smaller, however it is still significant. Nonetheless, you simply cannot compare the wages Liverpool can afford to pay with the likes of Chelsea, United and Manchester City. One player who has come under heavy criticism has been the Serbian…

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…

The passion exemplified in the stands by the hinchas of both River Plate and Boca Juniors often filters its way down pitch-side to their players, with all 22 “warriors” motivated to unparalleled levels to take their side to the all important victory. Such is the importance of what is arguably South American football’s biggest derby, the players that tend to decide such encounters have often turned out to be of a highly specific bread: passion, character, heart… and…

According to the same source, German club manager Josep Guardiola is the big fan of Herrera, while Shaqiri wants to leave Munich and all these…

  • LA Galaxy V New England Revolution final likely

    Alex Morgan
    23 Nov 2014 | 7:11 pm
    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…

    Alex Morgan

    It is clear that in professional football, clubs will do almost anything for a win, especially at the top level where no small detail is left uncovered. However, often it is the one overlooked nugget that gives a clever team their key edge. For instance, Tony Pulis discovered one while at Stoke City: throw-ins. Rory Delap, their specialist in the field, could throw into the box from anywhere thirty meters around it, at speeds reaching up to 60kmh. It was their edge, largely because it was something new and unique; an uncovered nugget, a situation overlooked. Defenders did not know how to…

    Arsenal need to capitalize on United’s injury list to avoid a key midseason slump Arsenal’s annual January-February slump has become infamous — a meme even (#ArsenalSwoon). It has been their unfortunate trademark for the past eight years, and last year it cost them the title. For exactly half of the league season last year they sat atop the Premier League, yet a string of poor results, including a 5-1, 3-0, and even 6-0 loss saw them drop to fourth in the span of a few weeks, where they then stayed for the remainder of the campaign.

    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. Louis Van Gaal, who was taking charge of his first Manchester derby has yet to win away from Old Trafford which considering we are in November is a…

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.

    AC Milan’s Jeremy Menez doesn’t always score, but when he does it has to have a touch class to it. Take a look at any highlight reel of the Frenchmans and you will notice that he seem to have an inability to score simple goals. Today’s Milan derby seen Menez add yet another beautiful goal to his name as he scored a classy, well placed volley that gave AC Milan the lead in the 20th minute. After some good passing from the Rossoneri, Stephan El Shaarawy wipped in a beautiful cross, which was met by a delicate volley from Menez. The post Jeremy Menez Scored A Classy Volley In…

    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…

But a German keeper charging out at a French attacking player will evoke bad, bad memories for any French supporter of age enough to remember this….. Was it the worse unpunished foul ever? Probably. Helped Ze Ghermans to fight back and win the 1982 World Cup Semi Final in Seville. A trick which they repeated 4 years later in Mexico. So all in the force of history looks to be with them. But they play an awfully high line this German team so hopefully Neuer won’t be repeating Schumacher’s trick!

The United defender was dismissed for his second bookable offence, a wild challenge on City midfielder James Milner.

As for the derby game itself, Manchester City won the game 1-0 with a Sergio Aguero goal in the 63rd minute. The Red Devils responded well to the sending off and held off the inevitable City goal until Aguero…
  • 10 Games in… 13 Points… 10th Place… What Now?

    3 Nov 2014 | 3:00 pm
    10 games into the Premier League season and the table makes for sad reading for any United fan. In a 38 game season 10 games may only represent 26% of United’s league fixtures; but with a haul of just 13 points (with a quarter of the season gone) fans can kiss good bye to any hope of a  fairy-tale comeback season. 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…

    22 Nov 2014 | 11:11 am
    Well. That wasn’t a very good advertisement for the Premier League, was it? Basically, this dour 0-0 draw can be best summed up as two sides who aren’t good enough to defend properly but also aren’t good enough to take advantage of poor defending. [[content.top]]We started off all over the shop, with Wes Brown doing his trademark giving the ball to the opposition just outside our own box. Fortunately, Jamie Vardy isn’t in the same league as Alexis Sanchez (he’s barely in the same league as Alexa Chung, to be fair) and messed it up. That said, we were very lucky that, for all his…
