    When Liverpool stops being polite...and starts getting Real: The UCL Final

    As a Liverpool fan, I am already looking ahead to the trophy that really counts...the Champions League. For Madrid, Alaba is the only injury question. Liverpool have a litany of questions. Salah got some run out today and VVD is rumored to be fine. Thiago limped off at half time and Origi was...

    MW12 - 2.7 billion reasons to watch

    Xavi is running the show at Barc and KDB is self-isolating. Gerrard has packed up and moved south while the Hammers' Ogbonna, who has been superb, is done for the season. In the EPL, Leicester-Chelsea, Liverpool-Arsenal, and Spurs-Leeds look like fun ones. And everyone in Newcastle is asking...

    Euro 2020 FINAL: Is it coming home or going to Rome?

    I feel for the Danes. That was a bad PK call and an unlucky rebound. But the final is a well deserved match up between two of the best sides in the tournament and should present us with lots of compelling storylines and tactical interplay. Let's hope the quality of the actual match meets the...

    The best you ever had?

    Just for fun and out of curiosity as the European season winds down - who is the best player you ever shared a pitch with? For a few years, I played over-30s 7-a-side with Dino Melitas. His was a true Americans Abroad tale - at least before Americans became top-flight stars and UCL winners...

    Gameweek 38: This is the end, my beautiful friend, the end

    Nuno out! A tough season for Wolves, but I am very interested in where he lands next. Will Mendes take care of him or is Nuno on his own now? Either way, I think he is quite good and could really help any number of teams. Crystal Palace...

    Gameweek 35: Money for nothing & relegation-free

    ManU have a crazy stretch here - @Villa on Sunday, Leicester on Tuesday, and the NW Derby on Thursday. Ole is already saying he will rotate heavily, floating the idea of totally different staring XIs. The European implications could be significant with Leicester 5pts up on West Ham and...

    Gameweek 34: Pitch Invaders

    Soton's Vestergaard drew a red card at 10 minutes for a desperate lunge to stop Vardy. But it's still goalless at the half. The ref paused play at about the half-hour, just after the sun had set, so that the Ramadan-observant Fofana could pound a banana. Nice touch, haven't seen it in the EPL...

    MLS 2021: On a scale of 1-10, my baby's 26

    A new season, a new thread. The Fire and NYCFC kick off preseason matches this coming Saturday in what promises to be 90 minutes of soccer. A quick look around the league shows some interesting developments. The number of DPs signed this winter is way down (only 4), not surprising given tight...

    Liverpool 2020-2021: John Henry Walks Alone

    It's been a helluva ride. It's great that the EPL was able to finish out the season without a virus outbreak & the Reds got to take the title without controversy. And bonus points for avoiding long-term injuries, though Player of the Season Jordan Henderson's knee will be one to watch. Next...

    Liverpool 2019-2020: Let's Talk About Six, Baby

    Whatever disappointment there was following a record breaking 2nd place in the EPL has been washed away by winning the Champions League. The overwhelmed looks of joy and release on the players and coaches alike said it all. What Klopp has done is nothing short of amazing given the...

    Match Thread May 18-19: To the bitter end

    Lots of interesting, meaningful matches across Europe this weekend. Levante is already up 2-0 on Atletico to kick off the day. I don’t grasp all the possible permutations for La Liga’s European qualification slots, but I do get that Sevilla vs Bilbao should be an intense match since both teams...

    Arde Madrid: The Champions League Final

    Liverpool-Tottenham, June 1 in Madrid. Liverpool have beaten Spurs twice this season, both 2-1 affairs. The second match was intense and evenly played, only decided by Lloris' mistake in the 90th minute. Both teams should get back to close to full strength for the final, though Keita is...
