If you’re anything like me, you’ve had a busy schedule lately. Between all of the normal fall activities that need to take place (raking the leaves, wrapping up the amateur league outdoor season, drinking at tailgates, etc.) and real world work, there’s hardly enough time to take in the copious amounts of Champions / Europa League and World Cup qualifying matches that we’ve been treated to lately. Then I remember that, as a guy that claims he’s on the wrong side of the pond because of the lack of football coverage, I’m not really allowed to bitch about having too much soccer to watch. Right?
So with the idea of “there’s never too much soccer” firmly implanted in our heads, feel free to enjoy some of the best links I’ve unearthed from around the game over the last week to feed your never-ever ending thirst for information about the game.
