The Unknown DP: Shkelzen Gashi

Major League Soccer has openly stated its ambition to one day rival Europe’s elite competitions. It has learned from its betters by importing their aging stars. Yet, that is changing. Many clubs are realising it’s time to move beyond name recognition, to seek younger, more agile foreign players to better match the league’s burgeoning homegrown talent. Sebastian Giovinco and Bradley Wright-Phillips were ... Read More »

Jermaine Jones Channels His Inner Mario Balotelli

Jermaine Jones isn't feeling the love with the USMNT

Back when he was throwing darts at Manchester City youth players and touring women’s prisons in the Italian countryside–ah, good times–Mario Balotelli actually had printed, then wore, a t-shirt asking “Why Always Me?” of critics panning his antics. Jermaine Jones has always dressed the part of societal rebel with his extensive tattoos and wild, flying dreadlocks. Nor has he ever been afraid ... Read More »

Bruce Arena Versus The World

Bruce Arena looks even less like Michael Cera than Gareth Southgate. Like the England manager, however, Arena finds himself up against it in his second stint as United States Men’s National Team boss. After the USMNT dropped its first two matches in CONCACAF’s final World Cup qualifying stage, under Jürgen Klinsmann, the American has been brought in to defeat the ... Read More »

A pedestrian start to Bruce Arena’s second stint in charge of the USMNT

Somewhere amidst Sunday’s sporting cornucopia, which included Manchester United’s 4-0 FA Cup fourth round victory over Wigan, the NHL’s second go-round with its four-division three-on-three All Star mini-tournament, the NFL Pro Bowl, and WWE’s Royal Rumble, the United States Men’s National Team played to a nil-nil draw against Serbia in the international friendly marking Bruce Arena’s return as manager.

Match Report: Liverpool 2-1 Everton (Everton Fan’s Perspective)

Big screen at Wembley showing the Everton crest.

Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton went head to head in this season’s first FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, with the red half of the city booking their place in the final thanks to a late Andy Carroll headed goal. Leading up to the game, and even for the first 45 minutes, I was quietly confident that this could be Everton’s ... Read More »

Match Report: Everton 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Everton Fan’s Perspective)

Another top four team, another win. Following wins against Man City and Chelsea this time it was the turn of Tottenham to face defeat at Everton. There’s something about Goodison under the lights, the atmosphere is incredible and the noise is amplified. The game was a tale of two halves. Everton completely dominated the first half, creating four or five decent ... Read More »

Match Report: QPR 1-1 Everton (QPR Fan’s Perspective)

A Bobby Zamora header earned QPR a deserved point in a close-fought encounter at Loftus Road. But it was a case of another week, another opportunity missed by QPR. With only one win in 15, it’s a miracle that we are yet to fall into the relegation zone. After three consecutive league defeats, QPR came into this game lacking in ... Read More »

Confident Blackburn Grab Deserved Point At Goodison.

A Tim Howard clanger cost Everton dearly as David Goodwillie’s equaliser gave Blackburn a share of the points at Goodison Park on Saturday. Earlier Tim Cahill broke his 13-month goal drought to give Everton an unwarranted lead. In truth, a draw was the least Steve Kean’s men deserved after a confident performance in which they pinned Everton back for long periods. Both ... Read More »

Huge opportunity for Football in America

Ask any American sports fan what Sunday is to them and they will immediately reply “football”. Ask any English sports fan what 4pm on a Sunday is and they will tell you “Super Sunday”. This weekend is no different, the NFL plays host to two huge games with the winner of each game making it to the Super Bowl. While in the ... Read More »

Match Report: Everton 1-2 Bolton Wanderers (Bolton Fan’s Perspective)

Bolton Wanderers recovered from conceding a freak goal to collect a massive three points at a blustery Goodison Park, lifting the Trotters off the bottom of the Premiership. Having seen fellow strugglers Blackburn, Wigan, Wolves and QPR all lose earlier in the week, Bolton knew an unlikely win at Everton would give them a huge boost towards relegation survival. And ...
