  2. Bundesliga Rumor Mill

    Christophe Daum pulled off the biggest surprise of the early silly season, by quitting Cologne to return to Turkey via Fenerbahce. I would love to hear Jan’s input on this, but my take is that it could be a sucker … Continue reading

  3. Quick Hits

    My focus as announced last week is on the US National Team for the Summer. I apologize for the lack of MLS coverage. The site while called MLS Talk has created a niche where we cover all aspects of the … Continue reading

  4. Manchester City: The Next Chelsea FC?

    It wasn’t so long ago, I was completely outraged by Chelsea FC’s spending. 16.6m for Mekelele. 24.4m for Essien. 19.8m for Carvalho. 24m for Drogba. As a business, the club could sustain a 140m loss on a year because Roman … Continue reading

  5. New Jersey – The Garden State with Soccer Roots

    New Jersey, the Garden State, is famous and infamous for many things: the Mafia, Atlantic City, Frank Sinatra, Bon Jovi, stone-washed jeans, the Pine Barrens, Bruce Springsteen, teased hair, the Meadowlands, the Jersey Devil, pharmaceutical companies, the Turnpike, the Lindbergh … Continue reading

  8. La Liga Final Roundup – Week 38

    My Catalan isn’t great but I believe the picture says “Players, Fans, Everyone United Makes Strength, Thanks To Everyone” Barcelona wrapped up its 19th La Liga title and all the European cup spots are pretty much sewn up. The final … Continue reading

  9. Everton Coming To Canada This Summer

    Everton are planning on playing a friendly in Edmonton, Canada this July, according to a report in The Edmonton Journal. According to the newspaper, a contract has been signed for Everton to play against a team to be determined on … Continue reading

  10. CONCACAF: Mental Toughness Needed

    Many fans newer to the game in this country who perhaps form their opinions by listening to anglicized radio programs or perhaps football themed shows direct from Britain have formed a completely invalid and biased opinion about CONCACAF. Many of … Continue reading

  11. Do We Really Need A New Football?

    Football’s magnificence lies in it simplicity. The rules, the tactics, the culture have adopted their own complexities over the years, but boots, nets, linesmen, banners and songs all become luxuries when we acknowledge the lovers of the game would play … Continue reading

  12. Can Wigan Afford To Lose Steve Bruce?


    When I heard that Steve Bruce was being lined up as the replacement for Ricky Sbragia, a few alarm bells rang in my head. Bruce, being a Newcastle United fan surely couldn’t be Ellis Short and Niall Quinn’s choice as … Continue reading
