ESPN Promotes World Cup Draw And Group Of Death

I want to take a break for a minute from the whirlwind Premier League season to remind everyone that the World Cup Draw is happening this Friday, December 4th, and will be televised live around the world. For soccer fans, it’s one of the most exciting days every four years […]

Hodgson and Fulham Set To Continue The Good Work

Over the years since he bought an ailing and abject club, Mohamed Al Fayed has certainly made some “interesting” decisions over the years. Whilst Mickey Adams was rewarded for taking the team up to Division One by being sacked in September 1997,  after Al  Fayed deemed him “not high profile […]

Soccer By the Numbers: Soccernomics Book Review

Over the past decade or so, there has been an odd trend of political and financial analysts, economists and behaviorists writing books analyzing sports.  Some of these books have shifted the paradigm in those sports like Michael Lewis’ baseball analysis Moneyball.  Some of these books found very creative ways to […]

Burnley’s Away Day Woe Continues

Another away game and another game which could have been closer ends up running away from Burnley. Similar to the match against Tottenham, when they had a dubious offside decision against them, Burnley pushed West Ham close for the first 15 minutes, conceded a goal and ended up finding themselves […]

Interview With Gary James, Football Historian and Author

Chelsea Expose Flaws Of Arsenal And Their Beautiful Game

Chelsea is a machine. Indestructible. Precise. Physical. Flawless. Arsenal is the total opposite. They’re more fluid, and play a beautiful brand of football that is easy on the eye. When the two opposing forces came together on Sunday afternoon, few would have predicted how Chelsea completely tore the Gunners apart, […]

Jimmy Bullard Goal Celebration: Video

Watch the video of Jimmy Bullard and his Hull City teammates making fun of Phil Brown earlier today after Bullard scored a goal in the match against Manchester City at the City of Manchester Stadium. The incident made fun of Brown’s lecture he gave Hull City almost a year ago […]

Portsmouth v Manchester United and the Dubious Penalty

Not that it mattered much in the end, but Saturday in the Premier League saw Mike Dean (with the help of his linesman Richard West on one instance) award three penalties, one of which must have been one of, if not the most dubious penalty this season in the Premier League. Manchester United looked a […]
