You can bet on Spain again.
Tis a wonderful thing to have a country oozing skill and technique capable of being considered a worthy contender without the qualifying phrase “but…but…but…it’s Spain!“. It simply makes tournaments that much more scintillating and victory for the winners (if not Spain) that much more delicious.
Now, if ... [read more]
One thing which will always last from the tournament is the great slew of pictures featuring lovely young ladies. Now that we’re officially in the era where YouTube runs the world, why look at one picture at a time when you can have a bevy presented to you with a questionable soundtrack? Exactly.

When Antonio Puerta collapsed on the pitch and died last year, there were all sorts of memorials from all over the footballing world and beyond. Not to take anything away from any of them, but yesterday’s tribute by Spain right back Sergio Ramos has to be one of the most generous. ... [read more]
“Torsten. Dude. I know it helps you feel better about the loss, but the cameras are still rolling.”

Well, this is embarrassing. I did a quick rundown of Euro 2008 Player of the Tournament candidates last night, and there was one name I forgot: Xavi Hernández.
And guess who UEFA has named as player of the tournament this morning? That’s right: Xavi Hernández.

If you've been paying attention to the pandemonium in Brazil, you might notice this football-mad country is pretty damn mad about some football, namely the World Cup (the Rio Olympics aren't helping either). Basically, just like everyone else who throws a big party, they're not happy with the costs and ...
Football is - sport in general, really - a great place for some creative hyperbole. "He shot it to the moon!" Well no, not really. "The defender has him in his back pocket." Diego Buonanotte or Maximiliano Moralez perhaps, but no one else. Today, we have a new one: "Boy, ...
Given Lecce has spent recent times bouncing between Serie A and Serie B, the dungeons of Italian football, where they were placed for doing all sorts of scandalous Italian things, aren't quite acceptable. The fans let their displeasure be known after failing in the playoffs for promotion back to Serie ...
Call it a week, call it a month, call it a summer. The battle is over. "Can I just stay here with you?" "Definitely not." One needn't have paid the slightest attention to Sebastien Squillaci's time at Arsenal to find the genius in this video. Every club should have one. [101gg] ...
The Guardian has gone and shaken some salt into several open wounds by unveiling the twenty worst sitter misses of 2012-13. There are some solid names on the list, including Barcelona's fresh new 50m+ signing, and they don't discriminate based on gender, either, with Nicoletta den Ridder is a solid ...
Ketchup and mustard kits aside (no corner taken on color richness), this little clip from Aruba has so much going for it. From the mere fact it's a goalkeeper goal, to the Marco Tardelli-esque celebration of unadultered joy and childlike innocent, to the complete meltdown at the end by the ...
Watching sports interviews, no matter the sport, is like watching a cheating husband attempt to deflect questions. The actual question is answered roughly three percent of the time. Brendan Rodgers somehow manages to do the same when it's a 9 year old firing the hard-hitters his way. Almost as though ...
Football has a bit of a reputation for a little bit of liar, liar, pants on fire when it comes to the injuries. Javier Mascherano has boosted that several levels. Beyond kicking another dude in the back while being taken off for an injury, he then hopped off the stretcher ...
