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.
I’m pretty sure UEFA did this just to make ... [read more]

Découvrez le « Menu Paris Saint-Germain » avec notre Fournisseur Officiel McDonald’s IDF http://t.co/SnrQMD5Pre pic.twitter.com/M6kyopSUrL— PSG Officiel (@PSG_inside) December 5, 2013 Most of the jokes centering upon McDonald's sneaking into the football arena involve American-owned clubs or those employing Adriano or other once-iconic now-tubby superstars. But it's PSG who would like ...
The video is well over a month old, but the world can be forgiven for overlooking the Finnish third division, right? Right. Thankfully, the video also provides running commentary as well as a wonderfully obstructed viewpoint from the stands. And if you pay attention, you'll notice that it's not quite the ...
If this happened in America, this child would rebel by becoming an Ajax fan and they'd film an entire reality show based whlly upon the family dysfunction as a result. As it stands, however, this kid could very well grow up to become this kid. Let's hope there's a ...
Tis the season, which means plenty of footballers getting into the spirit on YouTube - and of all clubs, it always seems as though Manchester City is at the forefront of the holidays. Maybe because they can afford the most gifts? Who knows. John Guidetti is definitely...embracing the spirit. That's being ...
A rehearsal was held for the 2014 World Cup draw taking part on Friday in Bahia, which meant a simulated draw was whipped out of the bowls or hats or whatever the hell they'll use. Judging by that draft draw, there are a lot of federations which won't be sleeping ...
The spate of solid World Cup commercials has begun. Next up is Paolo Rossi's spot for VISA, taking him back to Brazil to remind them of the terror he unleashed in 1982 with a hat trick in Spain. Presumably the next one is a very resigned Roberto Baggio taking heat ...
Adidas launched the official ball for the 2014 World Cup, called the brazuca. Which sounds vaguely like something Kramer and Frank Costanza would've whipped up. They had models and dubstep but not a soul who thought to change the name to something which sounds less like a brassiere for the ...
There has to be someone out there knowing the market for this. Given that it's the global game and not everyone has a global understanding of languages, hacked pronunciations are the norm. Someone should take a cue from Cesar Azpilicueta and get all footballers to pronounce their own names on ...
