Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 17

Gameweek 17 ended with Manchester United taking sole ownership of first place after they were able to overcome Arsenal at home, 1-0. It was a tight game that often lacked the quality needed to make it the weekend’s marquee match off paper, but it was a result the Reds will welcome. […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 15

Gameweek 15 of the Barclays Premier League was a brilliant example of just how exciting and intriguing the league can be. There were plenty of goals scored, a few standout performances and some entertaining matches both at the top and bottom of the table. Heading into the weekend, I had […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 14

If you read last week’s post and failed to believe me, then just maybe because of this weekend’s matches and results you’ll start to realize that this league isn’t one that falls into the cliched colloquialisms that tend to surround themselves with the Premier League. Supporters of both Manchester clubs […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 13

The funny thing about the Premier League is that you never quite know how things will turn out until matters play out on the pitch. Before the weekend, many were waxing poetic on Chelsea’s very realistic chance of thrashing Sunderland by four, maybe five to Sunderland’s sad nil. Sunderland failed […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 10

Saturday in the Premier League was eclipsed by the top three clubs in the table while Sunday witnessed two massive local derbies play out to incredibly different results. Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United survived their respective matches to gain three points without dominating inferior opponents while Sunday’s rivalries produced a […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 9

As much as I do enjoy the off the field entertainment associated with football in England, early Saturday kickoffs are always a welcome relief to the insanity of contract negotiations, rumors and managerial master classes. While topics concerning the week that was have been written on at length, it’s now […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 6

Emphatic Wins in their Infancy While two massively different matches played out to identical score-lines on Saturday, the meaningful implications associated with those 1-0 wins by Manchester City and West Ham United may go somewhere over the rainbow in defining the seasons of the victors. While Roberto Mancini got his […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 5

A truly great weekend of football was witnessed during Gameweek 5 where football fans saw enough goals, controversy, late drama and skill to once again prove the Premier League as the world’s most exciting domestic league. Manchester United v Liverpool will steal most of the headlines, yet there was some […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 2

6-0, the new 1-0. Parity, maybe? Well, not really. Three Barclays Premier League matches ended 6-0 this weekend with one still left to come Monday night. As the parity debate rages on concerning the overall quality of Premier League teams 1-20, gameweek 2 went a long way in proving just […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 38

Iron Man 2 and Mother’s Day Champions FC Football played second fiddle this weekend to Mother’s Day and Robert Downey Jr. & Co. running around saving the world from a Russian villain. Quite the opposite event played out across England as another Russian, this time Roman Abramovich and not Mickey […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 37

Slim Pickens isn’t just the name of the bloke from Dr. Strangelove Congratulations isn’t just the name of the new MGMT album Rafa’s (Money Back) Guarantee In one of the all time “we’re not up for this” performances, the proud, historic, legendary Liverpool Football Club capitulated any hope of fourth […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 36

For Those About to Stoke, We Score 7 on You Should Someone Tell Wayne Rooney He’s Needed on the Pitch & not in that Hospitality Box? For a second there I actually thought Rooney was allegorically announcing his retirement from Manchester United as he symbolically passed on his son, full […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 34

I wanna sleep in one of those tents As we find ourselves with four matches left in the season, we’re starting to have a pretty clear indication of who’s going home with what and who’ll be playing where next season. A lack luster, Rooney-less Manchester United could only manage a […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 33

Odd that Gameweek 33 has fallen on Easter weekend (if you don’t get the direct correlation, ask someone who celebrates Easter) even more odd that a pesky little Argentinian (who may, or may not be mentioned later) is leading his current club emphatically as his former club and cross town rivals […]

Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 32

Leaders leading & Chelsea score 7, Liverpool should have scored 7 And it was Craig Gordon (again) who produced the kind of performance that kept Sunderland from experiencing an embarrassing afternoon, just ask Aston Villa. Such were the fortunes and misfortunes from just 2 of the 9 Premier League matches […]

Why I’ll be watching CONCACAF Cup on FOX Sports, not Univision; By Oliver Tse

Ever since I started watching soccer on English-language U.S. television regularly in August 1994 (as a replacement for Major League Baseball, which had a player strike and had to cancel the World Series that year), I have always believed that the development of home-grown North American sportscasters is one small […]
