Where's Rooney?

Champions League Odds and Sods 2 April 2008

Liverpool and Arsenal had an Oscar and Felix feel.  Both clubs are each other’s bogey teams.  Arsenal’s Frenchified fancy dans cannot break down disciplined defenses and remain prone to adept counterattack.  Lump and pray Liverpool struggle when forced to play chess on the ground rather than checkers in the air.  […]

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 […]
