Week in Review May 2-6, 2011

Are you ready for some SOCCER?  Tonight is the debut of Soccer Night in America, which this week means Friday.  Portland and Philadelphia will kick off around 10:30 PM ET.  That plus an 11 PM kickoff in the #LAvNY match means East Coast soccer fans will have a few late […]

The Week in Review: April 25-29, 2011

Quite possibly this has been one of the darkest weeks in MLS in a long time.  David Ferreira is gone for a while, Steve Zakuani’s situation is even worse, the league handed out the longest suspension in its history, Seattle is suffering even more with O’Brian White’s surgery, and RSL […]

Week in Review April 18-22, 2011

For your viewing pleasure, above is the video of Juan Agudelo scoring the goal of the year so far in Major League Soccer. Every time there is a story or interview saying Americans should temper their enthusiasm for him and hold off on predicting greatness, he does stuff like this. […]

Because of the number of games played during the week, this weekend’s schedule is evenly distributed between Saturday and Sunday.  The Saturday evening spotlight match is DC United visiting BMO Field and Toronto FC, as seen on Fox Soccer Channel.  The Sunday game on Telefutura is Chicago hosting the Beckham- […]

Our week of action has already kicked off with the, ahem, controversial draw between New England and Vancouver.  But there is a full slate of intriguing games this weekend, so please vote in the poll at the end of this post.  Before doing that, however, let’s take a look at […]

Week in Review, March 21-25 2011

After the shine of the first weekend has worn off, MLS gets into the grind with some of its biggest names missing for international duty.  Some teams have a second chance to show they’ve improved, while some have another chance to prove they aren’t bottom feeders.  Make sure you vote […]

Week in Review: February 8-13, 2011

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  With the Egyptian friendly canceled, it was a slow week in American soccer.  MLS clubs are playing pre-season matches against youth clubs, colleges, and each other, and the season is less than one month away.  Besides the schedule release last week, here are some other news […]

Weekend Updates: February 4-6, 2011

It was an admittedly slow week in American soccer as the American sports scene shifted to Dallas and the American football Super Bowl.  Within the soccer world some amazing results and goals from the English Premier League overshadowed almost all the other soccer news.  But nevertheless there were some noteworthy […]

die Tabelle lügen nicht! (a look back at round 20 of the Bundesliga)

1. Hertha Berlin (2-1 home win against Bayern) Just think how good this team could be with half their starters back. Actually it probably wouldn’t be much better as those injuries haven’t been significant to their back line, and that is where the strength of the Old Lady lies. I […]

Bundesliga Roundup for Round 6

Friday Games Koln 1:0 Schalke Saturday Games Dortmund blew out Stuttgart at home, Energie scored and won on the road, Werder and Bayer won offensive encounters with TSG and Bochum and Klinsmann should be California dreaming. Dortmund 3:0 Stuttgart Hannover 96 1:0 Bayern Munich Hertha Berlin 0:1 Energie Cottbus Bochum […]

What's Rising

MLS TV Ratings Continue Decline

Maybe I was simply delusional. Perhaps I was drinking the Kool Aid. This past April on EPL Talk.com I had engaged in a back and forth dialogue with the publisher of that site, Christopher Harris (aka the Gaffer) arguing the English Premier League would always have a niche following in […]

ESPN Impress with World Cup Coverage Thus Far

The first few days of the 2010 FIFA World Cup have come and gone like Robert Green’s stint as England’s #1 and ESPN (so far) have impressed with their fantastic coverage here in the States. It seems like ITV is the Robert Green of the tournament thus far while ESPN’s solid coverage, […]

Roundup of Soccer News From Around the World

If you missed the Brazil against Uruguay semi-final of Copa America last night, you could have seen a classic. The entertainment value was extremely high as both teams came so close to winning the match within regulation. Uruguay continually threatened Brazil and were unfortunate not to win the match. After […]

What's Next For FoxSoccer.tv?

Now that the relaunched FoxSoccer.tv worked so flawlessly for its biggest match yet, this past Sunday’s Manchester United against Liverpool encounter, I have to wonder what is the future for this platform. Many readers have already exclaimed how they’ve dumped Fox Soccer Plus in favor of FoxSoccer.tv because of its […]

What's Hot

Cristiano Ronaldo is determined to mask his decline

Earlier last week, Brazilian legend Ronaldinho left yet another club by mutual agreement. The story was like every other. After an initial bout of optimism, his time at the club (in this case, Fluminense) quickly turned tumultuous, and a split was in the best interest of both parties. It’s the […]

Review: Honigstein’s ‘Das Reboot’ is required reading for fans of German, US soccer

“Das Reebot,” a new book from Raphael Honingstein which hits book stores and online retailers on Tuesday, is a masterful look at how German soccer broke out of its conservative traditions to create a world champion. While Germany has always from the view of outsiders been a world powerhouse, having never […]
