  • Juventus' draw at Udinese exposes pitfalls of playing in a 3-5-2

    ESPN FC News
    1 Feb 2015 | 3:37 pm
    Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has rubbished talk of a row between himself and midfielder Arturo Vidal. Another disappointing performance by Juventus, who once again proved they struggle to play in the afternoon. With Roma having only managed a draw against Empoli on Saturday night, this was the perfect chance to create a larger gap at the top of the table. However, forced to revert back to their old shape, an imprecise and sloppy Juventus only managed a scoreless draw against an Udinese side that was both balanced and ambitious. It's never easy to face an Andrea Stramaccioni…

    1 Feb 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Mattia Destro has been loaned to AC Milan from Roma until the end of the season, and ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik questions which Serie A club he will find a permanent fit. While it wasn't always encouraging, Milan were able to wrap up a good week for the club with a 3-1 win over Parma at San Siro on Sunday night. Two goals from Jeremy Menez and a Cristian Zaccardo strike were enough to see the visitors off, and it will hopefully give the Milan players some confidence ahead of the trip to Juventus next weekend.

    1 Feb 2015 | 3:25 pm
    Lionel Messi and Neymar came to the rescue on Sunday to keep Barcelona in the hunt for the Spanish league title. The Catalan side came twice from behind in a 3-2 win over Villarreal to stay one point behind leader Real Madrid. In England, Arsenal thrashed Aston Villa 5-0 for its biggest win this season. League leader Lyon and in-from Monaco drew 0-0 in the French league while Juventus missed the opportunity to open up a nine-point advantage at the top of Serie A.

    Wilfried Bony scored two goals Sunday to help give the Ivory Coast a 3-1 win over Algeria and a spot in the semifinals of the African Cup of Nations. Bony headed in a cross from Max Gradel in the 26th minute after being left completely alone at the far post. The Manchester City forward scored another in the 68th, nodding in a free kick taken by club teammate Yaya Toure. Hilal Soudani scored Algeria's goal in the 51st, taking a pass from Riyad Mahrez that trickled through a weak Ivory Coast defense and beating goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo.

    Didier Drogba is gone, and he might soon be forgotten when it comes to Ivory Coast's national soccer team. Wilfried Bony, the newest exceptional striker from the country that also produced Yaya Toure, scored a pair of goals Sunday to put his team into the semifinals of the African Cup of Nations. The Ivorians beat Algeria 3-1 at Malabo Stadium, and it was Bony who twice gave his team the lead with headers. ''I think the Ivory Coast team is very lucky,'' Ivory Coast coach Herve Renard said.

    Having returned from a long injury layoff against Stoke in early January, Mesut Ozil has been gradually easing himself back into the swing of things with Arsenal, and got 90 minutes under his best in the win over Aston Villa today. The German World Cup winner even got himself on the scoresheet today, scoring the second goal, but manager Arsene Wenger still feels he’s some way off his best. Wenger said Ozil is still lacking a bit of that ‘competitive edge’ having missed so much time out through injury, but didn’t sound overly concerned about it. Paul Lambert meanwhile,…

    Drew Epperley
    28 Jan 2015 | 6:43 am
    I’ve been thinking for a while now that the group that owns the NASL side Indy Eleven need to be in MLS. Maybe it has to do with Peter Wilt managing that club or maybe it has more to do with the renderings of the stadium that were just released. Provided by Indy Eleven Hot damn. The Indy Star had the scoop on the renderings that were released, detailing the $82 million stadium that will hold roughly 18,000. Indy averaged around 10,000 per game last year in a college stadium. I keep saying it but Indy is a soccer town that would do well in MLS. Not to mention the fact that they would…

    I see that number in the headline and I am immediately impressed. To get 17,000-plus already reserved for a team that won’t set foot on a field in MLS until 2017 is flat out impressive. The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting these figures that 6,000 founding members of the Atlanta club help make up this 17,500 number. Owner Arthur Blank is trying to fill his new NFL venue (which will be capped at 25,000 for MLS games), and so far his team is doing an excellent job. With two years remaining before the inaugural 2017 season, Atlanta’s MLS team has a realistic shot at overtaking…

    For the last couple of years, the MLS SuperDraft has begun to be a tad watered down. The emerging talent in the Homegrown departments of the 20 MLS clubs has meant those coming from the college draft aren’t nearly as valued as they once were before. MLS is apparently looking to change some things with the draft in the future according to the Orlando Sentinel. As the MLS draft pool is further watered down by the increase of homegrown prospects in the college ranks, and with teams putting an emphasis on developing players through its own youth systems, MLS is considering combining the…

    Late last week I received a league-wide press alert saying that Don Garber would be in Denver this week to make a special announcement with some of the Colorado Rapids brass. Some quick speculation went through thinking that the ownership was changing in some ways to the club hosting the All-Star Game this year. It turns out the latter of the two is the correct one. The Denver Post is reporting this morning that the Rapids are going to host their second ASG this year, nearly eight years after they hosted Celtic in 2007.

    For a long time, my issue with Hope Solo was that she got a fair shake as an athlete, instead of being judged by a different standard as a female athlete. Meaning, I thought Solo shouldn't be expected to be kinder, sweeter, or more polite and soft-spoken than any male athlete who is competitive and eager to win. I defended her right to be honest, blunt, human and hungry for victory. I didn't think that U.S. Soccer should have to market her or the women's team as picture-perfect ladies. Let them get their ponytails dirty, lose tempers, let them be real people. That's partly why…

    Years and years ago, I took an MLS coach to task in an article for his playoff strategy - or lack thereof, as I saw it. Though the San Jose Earthquakes were indeed relocated, my worst fears for Dom Kinnear didn't happen. He did learn from his playoff setbacks and went on to win multiple MLS Cups with the Houston Dynamo. He also gave me a long, hard look the next time I interviewed him - one that made me guess that he'd read my article (it isn't online any more, but was at the time). However, Dom has always been polite and fair to reporters, and other than that unwavering stare,…

    It's surprising that Club America isn't at the top of the table after spending five months there. It's also interesting that the team brought in excellent attacking players, yet those players haven't been able to score in the past two games. It's also weird that not a single player on the defending champions made the Liga MX Best XI. Chivas, yes, that club fighting relegation, is tied with Club America on points. So, is this karma for firing the coach who led them to the record 12th championship? Will it get worse before it gets better? My answer to both…

    This is the second attempt at starting this morning’s blog.

    Morning all, a quick Saturday round-up for you, as having to get out of bed into the cold this morning was thoroughly unpleasant and now I feel most grouchy. First things first and the manager says he’s unlikely to risk Alexis Sanchez tomorrow because of his hamstring strain. Sensible stuff really, but I can’t be the only one envisaging Ron Vlaar and Philippe Senderos skipping gayly through a field, full of joy, singing ‘La la la la la’ because the idea of having to deal with someone that fast and that good was giving them turtle’s tails. Nevertheless,…

    While Aston Villa couldn’t score a goal to save a box full of puppies, Demba Ba is putting them in even when he doesn’t realize it. Ba seemed to have his 19th goal of the season in Besiktas’ Turkish SuperLig match against Mersin Idmanyurdu, but the goalkeeper made a fine save with his foot. The ball pinged back towards Ba though, bouncing off his rear end as he was face down on the ground, and looping into the empty net. When Ba got back up on his knees, he wasn’t quick to celebrate as it seemed he had no idea what just happened. But even if he didn’t see it, the…

    28 Jan 2015 | 7:05 pm
    FC Barcelona secured their place in the Semi-Final of the Copa Del Rey with a sensational 3-2 victory against Atletico Madrid. Barca had to come from behind twice in a sensational first half which saw five goals beings scored at rather frightening pace. Neymar was Barca's star performer scoring twice and the other goal coming from an own goal from Miranda. The match was a fiery affair not only interms of football but also in terms of general conduct. At times the conduct of Simeone's boys were really bad with Turan even finding time to throw his boot at the linesman. But the…
  • Messi Penalty Gives Barca Edge over Atletico | FC Barcelona -1, Atletico - 0 Copa del Rey Highlights

    21 Jan 2015 | 6:49 pm
    FC Barcelona took a firm step towards Copa Del Rey Semi-Final when they beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 at home. The victory came via a Messi penalty (technically can't be called a penalty goal as his penalty was blocked and he scored from the rebound). The penalty was awarded when Busquets was brought down in the box following a Messi free kick; some could argue that the penalty was a bit soft. But there is no denial that there was contact. The match was a real tight one unlike the recent La Liga encounter between these two teams. Barca should be happy with the way they kept Atletico attack…
  • FC Barcelona - 3 , Atletico - 1 Highlights | Messi, Neymar, Saurez Trio Give Barca Vital win against defending Champions

    FC Barcelona consolidated their second position on table with a comfortable victory over defending Champions Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou last night. The victory came courtesy of goals from our froward trio of Saurez, Neymar and Messi. Messi, who has been the subject matter of all discussion related to Barca in recent weeks produced a marvellous performance. He played an enormous role in all goals that Camnp Nou saw last night, even the one which we conceded through penalty.

    You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. Abraham Lincoln The fact that Andoni Zubizarreta managed to stay as FC Barcelona's Director of Football was the biggest joke played on the fans for sometime. Some may argue that the board itself is a bigger joke, we will come to that later! This didn't come as a surprise to many. From the time we went to CAS fro appeal against transfer ban, there were hints that Andoni Zubizarreta would be made a scapegoat if the decision went against the club. The…

  • Liverpool’s dream post-January XI… How it could look?

    Alex Hams
    1 Feb 2015 | 1:11 pm
    “Unless something dramatic happens we will go with what we have.” These are the words of Brendan Rodgers just a few short days ago in relation to the transfer window. Although this could be construed as a signal that arrivals at Anfield before next week’s deadline are off the agenda, January is known for ‘drama’, so we could see one, or even a few, major additions at Anfield. A few players would be the dream, and here is how we think Liverpool could line up if the gossip columns turn into reality… (We’ve gone for a 4-4-2 diamond, by the way).

The fact that Bournemouth scored more goals in one game in Birmingham this season – an 8-0 win at St.Andrews in October- than Lambert’s side have managed in their 11 home Premier League games this campaign speaks volumes on just how inept this team are at putting the ball in the onion sack.

    We all love a good young prospect, whether we’re signing them up on Fifa or Football Manager, the thought of having a player that could become one of the world’s best is always attractive. However, in real life, it does not always work out that way and there are many young hopefuls who fail to make the transition from youth level to senior professional football. Although the risk of failure is incredibly high, every now and then there emerges a player that looks ready to compete at professional level no matter how young they appear to be.

  • Four centre-backs who could make Man City complete

    Iqbal Johal
    1 Feb 2015 | 12:12 pm
    Manchester City’s need for a centre-back to partner captain Vincent Kompany hasn’t been solved for over two years. Recent defensive performances in the Premier League reinforce the need for another top quality central defender in the side. Martin Demichelis was signed after Joleon Lescott’s decline in 2013, and although he has impressed at times, he still looks short of being a top defender for City. Just under £32 million was spent on 23-year-old French centre-back Eliaquim Mangala from Porto in the summer but he too has had a tough time in adjusting to life in the Premier League.

    Soccer Drills for U8 The purpose of this drill is to allow players to develop their dribbling and defending techniques. As players develop and mature in ability, they should begin to realise that soccer is about one on one duals and beating your direct opponent. 1v1 Players on the red team are the attacking side and start with possession. The red player must try and dribble his opponent and stop the ball in between the cones. Players on the blue team need to defend- if they gain possession-they become the attackers and try and stop the ball in between the cones. The dual stops once the ball…

    TSN -- This was supposed to be the best group of young players that Canada had ever assembled; a squad composed almost exclusively of players in professional club and academy environments. Qualification for the FIFA U20 Men's World Cup being held in New Zealand in May was supposed to be a question of "when" rather than "if" for Canada – little more than a formality. So when our under-20 men's team crashed spectacularly out of World Cup contention on Sunday – losing a must-win qualifying match to Cuba by a score of 2-1 – the inevitable question must be asked: Who is to blame?

    A recap of Barcelona's impressive comeback victory over Villarreal at the Camp Nou, as goals from Neymar, Rafinha Alcantara and Lionel Messi secured an eighth successive win for the Blaugrana FC Barcelona twice came from behind to claim an important three points and end Villarreal CF’s 18 match unbeaten streak with a 3-2 victory on a breathless night at the Camp Nou. Against the run of play, Denis Cheryshev opened the scoring for the visitors, with Neymar grabbing a deserved equaliser with the final kick of the first-half.

    A chance to predict the score of tonight's La Liga clash between FC Barcelona and Villarreal CF Something has to give: will it be FC Barcelona's seven-game winning streak, or will it be Villarreal's 18 match unbeaten streak? Both teams have been in impressive form as of late, and will soon square off in the Copa del Rey semi-finals, meaning that tonight's clash will serve as something of a preview, a dress rehearsal of sorts. Although equally, it's this La Liga clash that is arguably the most important match between the two sides this season. FC Barcelona need a win to keep up with Real…

    25 Jan 2015 | 4:05 am
    An FA Cup Fourth Round that saw heavyweights Manchester City, Swansea City, Southampton, Chelsea and Tottenham all collapse to underdogs, Liverpool fans should remain upbeat following their team’s goalless draw against Bolton as a win at Greater Manchester in next month’s replay will mark the Reds as genuine contenders for the trophy. It wasn’t an exceptional display from Liverpool on this occasion, with Bolton grabbing the headlines and taking plenty of credits for keeping a team that boasts the pace and trickery of Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho at bay. Here’s…

    The slender win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light meant that Liverpool are going through back-to-back victories having brushed Championship outfit AFC Wimbledon aside in the Capital One Cup in the earlier fixture. And to much of our surprise, Brazilian international Lucas Leiva has emerged to be the unsung hero for Liverpool so far this season.

    Steven Gerrard, being iconic and inspirational at best, demonstrated what the team would lack in his absence come next season with a majestic display to lead Liverpool to a 2-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup. The Liverpool skipper put his team in the driver’s seat just 12 minutes into the game after directing a header past AFC Wimbledon goalkeeper James Shea into the bottom corner. However, AFC Wimbledon were handed an unlikely equaliser when Adebayo Akinfenwa was first to react to a loose ball thanks to Simon Mignolet’s misjudgement. When you’re in a team staring…

    On a day when things started to look so good for Liverpool to kick start the new year with a convincing victory, Brendan Rodgers’ side slumped to a calamitous 2-2 draw having gone through the half-time interval with a demanding two-goal lead. All in all, this tweet pretty much sums up everything about Liverpool’s current declining situation in goal. Notwithstanding that case, here’s how the lads in red fared at Anfield earlier. Simon Mignolet – 5/10 Realistically, I think a good, not to say great, goalkeeper would have saved one of the two goals Mignolet had conceded…

    Of all days I had to sleep and miss the game. But at least looking at the scoreline alone makes me happy. Let’s face it. Nobody was convinced by that victory against Burnley on boxing day. That was perhaps the most frustrating first half I have ever sat through in a long time. But yesterday’s (or today’s in Malaysia) win against Swansea finally saw a win, with all the positives we had seen from the games against Manchester United and Arsenal. Brendan’s seemingly finally gotten his formula right. Three centerbacks holding the back line for us, but with a more defensive…

  • Shelvey strike sinks Saints

    1 Feb 2015 | 11:03 am
    With less than 10 minutes of normal time remaining, Shelvey collected Modou Barrow’s pass, shifted the ball to his right, and drove a powerful shot home from 25 yards out. The Saints pushed for a leveller during the remainder of the clash, but Swansea held firm to record an unexpected victory. Ryan Bertrand was shown a red card before the final whistle for producing a clattering, over-the-ball challenge on Modou Barrow. Garry Monk’s men climb to ninth place with the win, while fourth-placed Southampton, who could have gone above Manchester United, are now only in front of Arsenal by a…
  • Bhoys ease past Rangers

    1 Feb 2015 | 8:45 am
    A Leigh Griffiths header and a powerful strike from Kris Commons were enough for Celtic to defeat their local foes and book a meeting with Dundee United in the final. It was the clubs’ first meeting in three years, and a division separates the pair, but the atmosphere at Hampden Park was as tense and heated as has always been the case when the Glasgow giants come face to face. The Rangers fans, though, were quietened significantly in the 10th minute, when Griffiths found space amongst the Championship side’s defenders to head Stefan Johansen’s cross past Steve Simonsen. Anthony Stokes…

    1 Feb 2015 | 8:39 am
    Olivier Giroud collected Mesut Ozil’s fabulous click to finish well, before Andreas Weimann wasted an excellent change to draw Villa level prior to the interval. Ozil doubled Arsenal's lead from a Giroud through-ball, a fine Theo Walcott goal extended the Gunners’ lead, and Santi Cazorla added to the visitors’ misery from the penalty spot. Right-back Hector Bellerin completed the scoring with a well-hit strike from distance in injury time. Arsenal reclaimed fifth spot in the Premier League with the win, while Villa remain three points above the relegation zone. Arsenal attacked…

    31 Jan 2015 | 9:35 am
    Well-taken first-half goals from strike pairing Connor Wickham and Jermaine Defoe, his first for the club, set Sunderland on their way to just their second home league win of the season, a result that sees them move up to 14th in the table. For Burnley, however, it was a day to forget as they looked desperately out of sorts, with Liverpool-linked Danny Ings substituted on the hour after struggling to make any sort of impact. There was little to choose between the sides in a high tempo opening but, just moments after Ashley Barnes had come close at the other end, Sunderland were ahead…

When Luis Figo entered his name into the ring on Tuesday it was getting hard to keep track of the candidates.

    At the beginning of the season, it was no secret that it would be difficult for Dortmund to fill the Lewandowski shaped hole left by the Polish striker’s departure to the mighty Bavarians. However, predicting that the Black and Yellows would be second from bottom in the table languishing in the relegation zone was beyond comprehension. No one would’ve thought that the 2012 German champions and 2013 Champions league finalists would be joint bottom at the end of matchday 17 having lost 10 league matches already; 5 of them in succession.

    For a long time, no one seriously believed that Real Madrid and Barcelona would ever be challenged at the top of La Liga. However, the 2013/2014 season defied the odds as Diego Simone’s Atletico Madrid sealed the league title by drawing at Barcelona on a dramatic final day. Four or five years ago, Atletico was not a contender for the title in most people’s eyes. If any club was going to break the duopoly at the top of La Liga, it was going to be Valencia. Los Che used to include the likes of Juan Mata, David Silva and David Villa within their ranks, before selling them for…

    Rami El Chamaa

    The top flight in Scotland is largely frowned upon by the UK let alone other countries around Europe. Celtic and Rangers have won the highest tier in Scotland since the 1985-1986 season which has been evident proof of their dominance. Rangers were demoted to the Scottish League 2 in 2012 due to liquidation which pretty much sealed Celtic’s fate as being crowned Premiership champions until Rangers returned to the top tier but the 2014/2015 season has seen a new rise. Aberdeen were the last side to win the Scottish Premiership before Rangers and Celtic under the management of Sir Alex…

    Danny Welbeck came through the ranks at Manchester United under the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson. So, it would be fair to assume that the 23-year-old was special just like the crop of stars like David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, and Paul Scholes who had preceded him. Welbeck, though, failed to live up to the expectations that were once placed upon him as a youth team product from United. Even Ferguson did not see him as a first choice centre forward even with his abundant qualities like pace and power. Betfair places Welbeck at a distant 33/1 to win the Golden Boot award this season.

    I’m not sure how big a story this has been around the world, but next month Scotland is voting to decide whether or not they should become an independent country for the first time since 1707. Scottish nationalism may be very high at the time voters go to the polls. Glasgow has just successfully hosted the Commonwealth Games, in which the UK countries compete as separate nations, and the Ryder Cup will soon be held at Gleneagles. Opinion polls seem to suggest that, at the moment, Scotland will stay in the UK, but let’s say hypothetically that the ‘yes’ campaign is successful and…

However, that wasn’t always possible, especially in my high school years. My dad wouldn’t be able to make it home for my games so I would always have to share, way after the game, all the great or not so great things that happened.

    This FA Cup fourth round produced a shocking number of upsets. What have we learned from the most recent round in the 2015 FA Cup? At this point I think it's hard to say. Many pundits will talk about the "magic" being lost for the big teams. They will moan and complain about how today's teams don't cherish the tournament enough. At the same time there will be those with the counter-argument that the magic is well and truly there for the minnows.

    Jonny Evans once led many Manchester United fans to believe that he would be one of the defenders forming the new center back pairing to replace that of Vidic and Ferdinand. Eventually, when time came for the golden pair to be replaced things did not turn out as predicted. From a potential world class to nothing but a flop in the ongoing season Jonny Evans has performed at levels defining a new low. The defeat to MK Dons was probably one of the most depressing of the lot. Jonny Evans is nothing but a mere shadow of the player he was two years ago. A string of good performances on loan for…

It was almost a foregone conclusion that his career would receive a fairytale ending at his boyhood ground Anfield, à la Scholes, Maldini and his fellow Scouser, Jamie Carragher.Fairytales are kind of hard to come by in the harsh reality of…

  • Signing Juan Cuadrado is unnecessary and symptomatic of Chelsea’s reluctance in playing youth

    Reports have suggested the Colombian international has agreed to join Chelsea, potentially signalling the end of Andre Schurrle’s 18 month stay at the club. With news emerging the Blues have struck a £23.3 million deal with Fiorentina over the acquisition of star winger Juan Cuadrado it begs the question is he really needed by manager Jose Mourinho. No one is for one second questioning Cuadrado’s qualities. The wide-man is blessed with blistering speed akin to that of a cheetah, along with sheer dynamism and exceptional dribbling ability – the 26-year-old is nothing short of…

This wasn’t the “title decider” it was billed to be, with the draw leaving the race nearly as complicated as it was coming into the match.  Nor, however, was it what Frank Lampard suggested after the match: “It doesn’t change anything – that’s what draws are.” In terms of the table, yes, but in such a tight race it could just be the psychological advantage…

Yet for smaller clubs, or even big clubs, here are three tips that will certainly be cause for success without spending hundreds of millions of pounds. Avoid big names As highlighted in the book Moneyball, in baseball it’s still possible to create a competitive team with half the wage bill of the top spenders. In part, the secret is avoiding big names and buying players from undervalued markets. The same often applies to football.  The…

Liverpool and Chelsea were going at it – immediately afterwards Mohammad Sakho’s short backpass led to Jordan Henderson’s challenge on Oscar, which in turn earned the midfielder a booking as well as brewing a fight. The passage of play only went to justify Mourinho’s smile; he wanted his side to rile up Liverpool. Chelsea have a killer combination of guts, steel, and a silver lining of skill.

      It’s been a while since we won on our travels and it could’ve potentially extended against lowly placed QPR, who’ve had their home form to thank for at least keeping them off the bottom. However, we managed to maintain an unconvincing 2-0 victory with second half goals from Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson. Just moments before the Belgian’s goal, fans were calling for Louis Van Gaal to change back to the 4-4-2 formation but LVG would’ve been pleased that his side managed to get ahead.

      Our two month unbeaten was put to an end this weekend as we suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Southampton at Old Trafford. The build up to the game wasn’t as hyped as the clash at the St.Marys Stadium in December with the feud between Louis Van Gaal and Ronald Koeman the main talking point. This time the 3 points at stake was the crucial talking point with both clubs serious contenders for Champions League qualification next season. The truth is, we failed to trouble Southampton and although much was said about how well they defended, we were equally as poor going forward. Despite…

    5 Jan 2015 | 6:56 am
    The FA Cup is a competition which we haven’t won in a decade since a 3-0 win over Millwall in 2004. Darren Fletcher is the only survivor from that squad although we do have the likes of Juan Mata and Robin Van Persie who’ve won the competition with previous clubs. For the likes of Wayne Rooney it is a chance to complete a prestigious trophy cabinet that is just missing England’s most historic cup competition. Louis Van Gaal demonstrated how serious he is prepared to take the FA Cup by naming a strong side to face League 1’s bottom placed club, Yeovil. After our humiliating exit in the…

    Manchester United could only muster a draw once again on their travels as we couldn’t take any of the chances that fell our way in the first half. Hugo Lloris proved to be a stumbling block for us as Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Falcao all had their chances in the opening half but the French goalkeeper proved to be in inspired form to deny us. It was an unchanged side from the one that drew at Villa Park on Boxing Day despite this game being just 48 hours later and we were also the earlier kick off which further decreased the rest time between matches. However, due to the injuries…

    A perfectly placed diving header by Andre Ayew late in a closely contested game was enough to punch Ghana’s ticket into quarter-finals of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations, following a 2-1 win over South Africa at Estadio de Mongomo on Tuesday night to emerge as the Group C winners. South Africa shot into the lead in the 17th minute with an untimely stunner from outside the box by Mandla Masango, who caught Ghana’s goalkeeper Razak Braimah completely off guard. The Black Stars finally got themselves back into the game in the 73rd minute through an unlikely source, center-half John…

The Welshman was jeered by the Madrid fans when substituted as a result of his selfishness in front of goal which is now the second consecutive week that Bale has been guilty of thinking only for himself instead of the team. Last week we seen Bale refuse to pass to both Ronaldo and Benzema when on a deadly counter counter attack.

    It seems that Cristiano Ronaldo has been displaced by Gareth Bale as Real Madrid’s main freekick taker this season. The Welshman’s accuracy and consistency has seen him become one of the game’s most lethal players when taking a set piece in and around the box. This was on evidence today as Bale scored one of his best freekicks to date against Espanyol from about 25 yards out. Such was the speed and accuracy of the shot that the Espanyol goalkeeper could do nothing but watch as the ball rattled the post and nestled into the back of the net. Absolutely world class from Bale.

    Chelsea remained five points clear at the top of the Premier League table but surrendered their 100% home league record in a 1-1 draw with title rivals Manchester City. In the absence of talismanic striker Diego Costa and playmaker Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea struggled to punish City when they had the chance, yet they will be satisfied with a point. Loic Remy led the line for Chelsea with Costa suspended and Ramires replaced Fabregas, who was injured. However, the majority of the pre-match talk was centred around Frank Lampard and his return to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea’s record goalscorer…

The game was quite physical and took longer than 45 minutes to get started for Liverpool – the first half didn’t feel anywhere near as wonderful as the second. The manager had led up to this game by confirming he would be using Daniel Sturridge but when we saw the team sheet, he was only to be a substitute (and fans had been wanting and expecting him to start). Steven Gerrard would also be watching from the sidelines as he was not picked to be part of the squad at all.

Personally, I am sure that if the referees had done 50% of their job yesterday, Liverpool would be at Wembley on March 1! Chelsea’s manager Jose Mourinho, who often laments about how his team is dealt badly by referees, defended his player’s really bad fouls as ‘accidental’. My opinion is that Liverpool fans shouldn’t be saying that they lost, but actually, they were unfairly made to lose! Liverpool’s squad saw the return of Gerrard in the starting 11.

    One of the most interesting tactical changes Brendan Rodgers has made this season is when around early December, the manager started using Emre Can as a DEFENDER! If you know this player at all, you must have surely heard that he is a “talented midfielder”, so that’s why the change made by the Liverpool manager has been so surprising. When Liverpool bought Can in the summer of 2014, he had been recognised as an experienced midfielder, his “natural” position! The Germans clubs in the Bundesliga he played for used him as a midfielder- he was on the pitch for…

The second half of season will be upon us in January and fans of the Red Devils will be hopeful of at least a top four finish, to ensure a swift return to Champions League football. However, before we get carried away, what of the Dutch master’s first half to the season? If you are going to review or compare to a previous season then you need some basic criteria to compare with. Consequently, we really need to be looking…
  • Villa Deny United!

    John Duncan
    21 Dec 2014 | 12:31 pm
    Louis Van Gaal had to endure a difficult afternoon at Villa Park as Aston Villa ended the Red Devils six game winning run with a hard fought draw. Benteke denied Manchester United a seventh straight win with an 18th minute goal but United maintained third place in the Premier League table. However, it was Falcao who ensured the points were shared, with a powerful header in the 53rd minute, rather than handing all three to a Villa team languishing in 12 place. Manchester United are just seven points off the top of the table and despite much talk about a title challenge the draw will have hurt…

Now its a bit of deja vu in 2015 as the reds of Manchester have basically stunk out the place in all their matches this year – apart from a short period in the game at QPR in a 0-2 victory. They have just played out a 0-0 draw in the FA Cup at Cambridge United and anyone who saw the game will tell you that did not flatter the League 2 side at all.

Its far too early to say they are definitely in the title race or not – let me explain.

Usually a pass come in to a player with their back towards goal and it just gets passed sideways or backwards.Louis Van Gaal    No one is willing to turn on the ball and attack a defender even when they have time to do so, same with running into pockets to either create space and work to receive a ball in areas which could create attacking play. Playing very high with possession and no runners…

It started off as an indomitable wave, which then began to metastasize itself into an insidious crescendo. As he began to warm up, the din inside Anfield began to sound like the opening motifs from a symphony. As he got ready to…

    It was a game where players were drilled to do their job by Jose Mourinho and Manuel Pallegrini. It was a very cagey affair and both teams managed to end the game in a draw which doesn’t change the status at the top of the table as Chelsea still enjoy a decent 5 point lead at the top with a much healthier goal difference. City were the team which were striving for a win as it would have been a significant step in increasing the competition at the top, but failure to do so just meant that Chelsea have it all in their hands to get more wins and drop lesser points than City in the remainder of…
