It’s been a fun weekend thanks to the FA Cup, with the world’s oldest football knockout tournament providing a steady stream of great results and entertaining matches (unless you count the drab affair between Man United and Liverpool… snoozefest). If you’re like me, you’re still trying to digest everything that happened this weekend and don’t […]

Damn the holidays. Traveling to and from to get to all of my family Christmas celebrations, meeting with old friends who are back in town to see their families, and late night alcohol consumption have made it difficult for me to sit in front of a computer, let alone quit being lazy and start posting […]

it’s been ten days of mixed emotions here at wrong side of the pond. while i’m obviously elated at spurs incredible displays during this time, the roller coaster ride prior to both dramatic final whistles makes me wonder how i didn’t suffer a heart attack. (tangent alert: i feel like the lillywhites are a shiny […]

Nobody should want to be inside the mind of a footballer, you hear me?. In all¬†likelihood, most players’ minds are sick, dark and twisted places.

two months after my last round up post, and i have finally gathered up enough stories to put together one of these. and upon further thought, it comes off as pretty stupid of me, because since then i’ve created a whole other type of links post since then to accomodate the supposedly “huge” amount of […]

Sixty games into this World Cup finals, and with only four left to go, I can’t help but feel like this tournament has had some distinct, tournament-wide trends. While there have been some outliers, I feel like these themes have been prevalent in nearly every match. That’s how it feels to me at least.¬†And since […]

these “ten words or less” posts are fantastic little things. i love being able to bang them out in less than 20 minutes, especially when a normal post takes me, at minimum, an hour (but usually more like three). and with the transfer rumor mill spitting out doozies already (i will not talk about the […]
