It was a hectic week in the world of soccer, particularly for those of us who live in the Cincinnati area. There was an interesting weekend of Premier League football, highlighted by a crazy Manchester City mauling of champions Chelsea. Of course MLS was at it again this weekend, too. The Bundesliga finally made a proper […]

Just because Mario Balotelli has to labeen relegated to selection hell at Liverpool — unable to be sold, but of no use to the manager — that doesn’t mean you can keep his personality off the pitch. And you can thank his boot sponsor, Puma, for that. Above are a new pair of boots from […]

Premier League recap? Yep. Champions League wrap? Uh huh. A look at domestic matters ranging from the US Open Cup field finally being set, Minnesota United’s impending announcement as the 23rd MLS club and the media frenzy swirling about one of the investors in the potential Miami franchise?

And on Episode 4 of this season’s podcast, the guys […]

Transfers were on our minds as we recorded the third episode of the season of the WSOTP Podcast. Big names on the move, both domestically and abroad, dominated our conversation this week. And Jeremy and D.J. not only pontificate on the merits of quite a few those big ones, but also on who should and […]

Though we don’t often show it, men — even famous sportsmen — are still humans with emotions, too. And this latest edition of Pic of the Week captures one of those fleeting moments of male insecurity for posterity, as it features an overly emotional Mario Balotelli shedding tears after being subbed in Milan’s 2-1 weekend loss […]
