Is it me or does Philadelphia Union’s soccer jersey looks very similar to the Shrewsbury Town jersey worn by Derek Smalls in the cult classic movie, This Is Spinal Tap? In the 1984 film, there’s a hysterical scene where Harry Shearer who plays the fictional character Derek Smalls tries to […]

Gooners should be forgiven for indulging in optimism. With 36 goals in 11 matches, talk of Arsene Wenger’s gun slinging side has done much to impress, and you can sense the Frenchman is a few wins away from making some sort of bold prediction, ala the Invincibles. To be five […]

It seems hard to believe that LA Galaxy lie just two games away from another Major League Soccer Championship after the season they’ve endured. Rewind four months and a return to the increasingly bitter feud between Landon Donovan and David Beckham, a talented axis by which much of LA’s attacking […]
