Champions League Final Press Coverage Is Too Excessive

Am I the only person who is getting a bit sick of the Champions League press coverage? The match hasn’t even begun yet, but the newspapers continue writing article after article leading up to Wednesday’s match between Manchester United and Chelsea. Sure, I’m looking forward to the match just as […]

Season Finale

The 45th season of the Bundesliga has come to an end with comparatively little drama or theatrics. Bayern all but guaranteed itself the title with a busy summer in the transfer market, spending 70 million Euros on Luca Toni (the league’s top scorer), Franck Ribery (world class playmaker) and the […]

A Rough Night for John Arne Riise

Liverpool and Chelsea are often blamed for sucking the essence and style out of football, and no player embodies that more than Dirk Kuyt.  His work-rate is tremendous., his vitamins are in order, and he covers great ground.  At the same time, he has the finesse of a demented walrus […]

Robinho For Player Of The Year

Whether it’s the English Premier League and the Argentine marketing machine would like people to believe that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are locks for the FIFA World Player of the Year, I would like to be the first one to offer resistence from this preconceived notion. Likes(0)Dislikes(0)

Cristiano Ronaldo is determined to mask his decline

Earlier last week, Brazilian legend Ronaldinho left yet another club by mutual agreement. The story was like every other. After an initial bout of optimism, his time at the club (in this case, Fluminense) quickly turned tumultuous, and a split was in the best interest of both parties. It’s the […]
