This past weekend had it all: an Arsenal-United smackdown, a five-goal masterclass from Sergio Agüero, yet another Chelsea trip up, one manager quitting despite a positive result, and another manager losing his job after a somewhat positive result. Oh yeah, and there was USA-Mexico roster release that’s inspiring loads of questions of yet another manager, and […]

Welcome to the point in the yearly soccer calendar when there is literally too much going on to pay attention. The domestic regular seasons are winding to a close and the playoffs soon to begin. Across the pond, the European leagues are now old enough to have developed narratives and full-fledged drama. Just in case you […]

Another full plate of football talk awaits you on the latest episode of the #Pondcast. The bottom and top of the Premier League were awash with interesting results, punctuated by a series of amazing goals. Major League Soccer’s early season might be proving inconsistent, but it’s also yielded some really interesting stories. And the tail end of […]

You might be inclined to think that with this being the middle of an international break, we wouldn’t have much to talk about on this week’s “Pondcast”. Well, if you were so inclined, you were wrong.

So you can expect that to feature prominently on this week’s Pondcast, alongside the shuffle in and around the Champions League spots that took place […]

It seems as if it was just days ago that we were watching the Galaxy hoist their fifth MLS Cup trophy. Perhaps that’s due to the near constant stream of news now pouring from the […]

You might have noticed the slight uptick in activity on the site over the last week, with four new posts going up. That’s not that busy, but it is when compared to the previous few barren weeks that preceded it. Things have finally slowed down a bit at work after the turn of the new year, […]

We know this wasn’t the most exciting of Premier League weekends — though we’d expect Arsenal fans might have something different to say about that. Chelsea smashed someone, Villa and QPR continued to stumble, Spurs tripped their way to three points at home, Everton continue to do the opposite of impress and Alan Pardew pulls off another […]
