England’s poor 2010 concluded as they slid to a disappointing 2-1 home defeat to France, but the night may be remembered for the “Club v Country” debate returning once again.

The England national team is on life support. Not the actual team itself, but the amount of enthusiasm and excitement that the team generates. Sometimes it’s like watching paint dry as English footballers who dazzle us on weekends put in a hum-drum performance in a meaningless mid-week match for their […]
The winger/striker has found a new lease of life since leaving the champions, finding the form that inspired Chelsea to sign him aged just 15 in 2005. He has started his Swansea career with a bang scoring 12 goals in 15 games, helping to propel the Welsh club to third in the table and mount a promotion challenge this season.
Following yesterday’s article about why it’s no wonder that ESPN’s TV viewership for MLS games has dropped 12% this year, I planned on writing an article today about how and where you’re planning on experiencing the 2010 MLS Cup Final. I headed to ESPN’s Soccernet website to double check the […]

The stage is set for Sunday night in Toronto for the 2010 MLS Cup Final featuring FC Dallas against Colorado Rapids. The two clubs that almost everyone thought wouldn’t make it this far have defied the odds and made it. But out of FC Dallas and Colorado, who do you […]
When continental football connoisseurs talk about beautiful football, the Premier League is never mentioned. Spain provides passing, technical quality and thrills from teams outside the big two. Italy, while being dour, somehow manages to be elegant at the same time, with its midfield maestros working amongst its Gattusos. Case in […]
Despite it being a midweek friendly that many will immediately dismiss, I’m excited about this game. Sweden have picked a strong squad, and Germany are always determined and competitive. Also, this game gives Joachim Loew a chance to see which of Germany’s younger stars will be able to make the […]
An international break is coming up this midweek, and Prandelli is preparing Italy for a friendly against Romania. From the 23 that the former Fiorentina coach has picked, you have some new inclusions like Lazio’s Argentinean-Italian, Cristian Ledesma, and the return of Mario Balotelli who has recovered from injury. The […]
Prior to the MLS Cup Final on Sunday, Don Garber held court today to discuss the good, the bad, and the future of MLS. Much of what he said is in no way surprising, but he did shed some light on some hot topics in the American soccer world – […]
Saturday’s match that sent West Bromwich Albion north to DW Stadium against Wigan Athletic provided an entertaining match of two clubs looking to assert themselves, albeit in different ways.

Everybody was kung fu fighting in the Milan derby this past weekend. Well, not everyone, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic certainly was as he performed a karate kick on Marco Materazzi.

The BBC has reported that Alex has joined Chelsea’s growing defensive injury list and is estimated to be out of action for between 6-8 weeks with a knee injury that requires surgery.
With John Terry injured this leaves Chelsea with only one fully fit recognised centre back and a major selection headache for Carlo Ancelotti as the decisive festive period approaches.
Against Sunderland Paulo Ferreria deputised at centre back however whilst a useful bit part player he is nowhere near the standard required to play at the heart of the Chelsea defence and alternate options are a must if Chelsea are remain competitive.
Carlos Tevez and Rio Ferdinand got into a tussle in the Manchester derby last week, and now one witty bloke has put together a spoof video which shows a typical hyped Sky TV commercial featuring Carlito Tevez putting his fist into a place where the sun doesn’t shine of one […]
