Call this arrogant and strange for a team that wins once in a blue moon, but I knew we’d win this one. Paraguay seem to mythically fear our mountains as much as the Bolivians once mythically feared their barren Chaco plain in the 1930s (more…)

Socrates, as many of us know, was a Brazilian soccer player who played for the ill-fated Brazilian teams of the 1980s. He had long curly hair and a Jesus-esque beard. He was a qualified doctor who smoked a pack a day throughout his playing career.
He was a left-wing activist in a country that at the time was ruled by a ... [read more]
I never doubted him. (more…)

Pure craziness. All four teams who won these nutty quarter-finals did so overwhelmingly against the run of play, but then that’s how incredible upsets work. Can you begrudge anyone, at a time like this? This tournament is something ripped straight from my dreams, similar to the lovely, bizarre 2004 Champions League (which featured a Monaco vs. Porto final).

God knows I hated them for years. I considered them the Italy of South America, the team for which no trick was too underhanded for them to use to succeed. Diving to earn penalties were my main issue, but their substandard play never matched the results that crappy play seemed to deserve. They also had the knack of eliminating my ... [read more]
Club Football News
Love Football, Hate Football is a site dedicated to taking a currrent club crest and turning out a concept crest in its place. And the site is simply phenomenal. Not only are the designs solid and varied - you won't be a fan of every single one (the transformation of ...
If there's a 007 for a football coach, it's ceertainly not Jurgen Klopp. He's too goofy and, well, he's not a pretty boy. As far as dress sense goes, perhaps Andre Villas-Boas. The problem is football coaches are often too animated to be the supercool James Bond. Jupp Heynckes could ...
You knew it was happening: there's an animal involved in the Champions League Final. After Paul the 'Pus caused a mild ruckus in Germany in particular, it should come as no surprise that Wembley's civil war will feature another majestic creature. Next up for its 15 minutes is Nelly the ...
While the big news of the day is that Chelsea is free to go after a fifty year old child manager of the utmost ability, it's backup keeper Ross Turnbull's son Josh who is stealing the show. After the final match there were some festivities on the pitch. Josh didn't ...
The Munich Philharmonic penned this little aria for their boys heading to England for the grandest match of the year on Saturday. Bounding around Google has surfaced nothing in the way of an English translation for the lyrics, but it's worth it simply to watch someone work 'Heynckes' into a ...
During this evening's Copa del Rey final, won by Atletico Madrid in extra time at the Bernabeu (big win, that one), Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo were both sent off. The latter was unjustified, though Cristiano probably could've been sent off for kicking Juanfran off the ball earlier, and there's ...
This might be better than the Champions League final itself. Heineken decided to run a gag where if a guy could get his girl to go along with buying stadium seats for $1899, he would win tickets to the final in London. One man actually rose above the odds - ...
The people who whip up these fancy second-tier finals (UEFA. They're called UEFA.) concocted a nice little PR thingamajig by pairing one fan from Benfica and one fan from Chelsea with a top notch freestyler in a race through Amsterdam to the Arena. They would hope to determine a winner ...
