The number of adjectives to describe West Ham’s performance against Liverpool on Saturday are too many to fit on one hand.

One of the defining moments from Arsenal’s 3-2 loss against Tottenham Hotspur Saturday was Arsene Wenger showing his frustration by smashing his water bottle into the ground after Spurs came back from two-nil down to win 3-2. Wenger hates to lose and is quite apparent when his anger gets the […]

Werder Bremen striker Marko Arnautovic has been the subject of quite a bit of debate over the past few weeks. His arrogant, selfish actions have caused a bit of a stir around his club, and it’s possible that some mental supporters took their revenge on the young star. He refused […]
With no Friday match this week, Saturday is busier than ever. Dortmund will look to continue their domination of the Bundesliga with an away win at Freiburg, Bayern Munich will be hoping to continue their resurgence at Bayer Leverkusen, and Schalke will be looking to dig themselves out of the […]
