Alright. Enough is enough. This whole thing is really starting to spiral out of control. It’s not like this is a revelation or anything. Everyone knows finances in European football have completely gotten out of hand. Football mirroring life once again, it’s impossible to miss just how easily the rich are get richer while the […]

With the European season winding down, high drama is in overtime with all of the various plot lines around the world of football starting to reach their conclusions. The title race, the war for the Champions League places and the relegation scrap are all reaching fever pitch entering the last two weeks of the season in the […]

For a long time, I’ve tried my best to avoid the entire “Greatest of All Time” debate. The discussion of anointing any one player as the world’s best ever player is extremely polarizing, so much so that I’ve literally seen a fist fight between friends break out while arguing over the matter.

Modern technology, and the way it’s seeped into our everyday lives, sometimes blows my mind.

International break weekends in the US are a departure from the footie fan’s normal routine of getting up at the crack of dawn to watch matches until the early afternoon. Unless you’re lucky enough to be able to afford/have access to GolTV, the selection of international fixtures available can best be described as “shite”. In […]

While it’s often times more fun to squabble and make a fuss about all of the (likely) false transfer rumors that abound this time of year in the soccer blogosphere, I find it interesting that this particular TWOL posting get’s half of it’s links from mainstream media outlets.
