Have a look at this brilliant video titled the Golden Age of Passing, highlighting the best passes made during Match Day 3 of the Europa League. Particularly interesting was the deft touches made by Sammy Ameobi who had a stellar performance against Club Brugge.
Ameobi's performance did not go unnoticed as Pardew envisioned a big future for Shola's younger brother.
Chiek Tiote is the top passing player on Match Day 3 of the Europa League. Newcastle won 1-0 against Club Brugge. Pavel Horvath is still doing the business at the age of 37. How would they fare on Match Day 4?
Western Union unveils new education initiative around UEFA Europa League to deliver one million schooldays where they will turn every pass completed in the Europa League into funding to provide one day's education to young people around the world.
A nice way to get excited over the upcoming Anzhi Makhachkala v. Liverpool Europa League match tonight, eh? Can the Reds' second stringers show resolve and determination against a strong Anzhi side? The Reds outpassed the millionaire Russians at Anfield, will it be the same at the Khazar Stadium?
At Liverpool, Andy Carroll had to adapt his playing style. Then again, at Newcastle, Dalglish had been favoring a classic no. 9 already so the signing of Carroll for Liverpool should not surprise many last year. What was more disappointing was the lack of service for Carroll especially when Dalglish also bought Downing and Enrique to lay bombs on Carroll's head.
What an utterly breathtaking game between Liverpool and Everton over the weekend! Without the usual red cards and farcical refereeing decisions, it was refreshing to watch a Derby Day match where football actually took center stage.
Pundits are arguing that there was little technical quality in the game, but it did not matter one bit to me.
Soccer is not only the most popular sport in the world, it is also the most amazing. Besides having
plenty of investors pumping money into the various club leagues, soccer also has the largest talent
pool from which to draw from. Soccer scouts can search for new stars in every corner of the world.
Instead of watching the Euro 2012 tournament, why not go hunting?

Andrey Arshavin has not had a good time in the English Premier League in the season that just
ended. The Russian captain fell out of love with the Arsenal faithful and more crucially, with
Arsene Wenger. In a bid to ensure top condition for Euro 2012, Arshavin returned to Zenit St.
Petersburg for regular football.
Powered by their famed Dortmund trio, the co-hosts of Euro 2012 looked to be cruising after a
powerful first half. Poland's midfield quintet of Kuba, Obraniak, Murawski, Polanski and Rybus were
totally in control and gobbled up every mistake that Greece made in the first half. Greece and
Fernando Santos looked shell shocked and simply had no answer against the swarming Polish players.
The Reds had another season to forget. - 37 points behind the title winners, Manchester City -
Racism rows which divided opinions between player, manager and owners - A totally unnecessary siege
mentality - Finishing behind cross-town rivals, Everton - Losing pathetically in the FA Cup Final -
Having a dismal home record at what used to be "fortress" Anfield - Not gaining maximum points
against the eventual bottom six in the Premiership table
And yet, Liverpool amidst a trying season, won the Carling Cup, making Suarez, Carroll and
Henderson first time winners of an English club football competition.
And so the season finally ended. It was a season filled with drama, with more ups and downs for all
clubs than in any previous season. Who would've scripted a more dramatic end to the Premier League
title race? The excitement involved is what makes the Barclays Premier League the best league to
Wigan, in recent seasons have played a type of football which is pleasing to the eye. Since the
appointment of Roberto Martinez, he had taken the blueprint he developed at Swansea and imbued it
onto the Latics DNA. Their passing was amazing against Newcastle last weekend. Rarely kicking a
ball in anger, the Latics players played the ball out of defence into midfield, down the channels
and finally exploiting the openings with quick one-two wall passes.
