Eddie Johnson

Attacking the Flanks: Rosales and Johansson

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

Perceptions of the Sounders have evolved significantly over the course of the season. Early in the year many people questioned whether Eddie Johnson could still score goals. Later, when it was clear that EJ found his shooting boots, there were concerns that Fredy Montero could not play alongside him.

Andy Johnson finally has his big Fulham moment

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 0 views

Andy Johnson's hat-trick and ongoing contract talks got me thinking. Should we renew? Tough call, but my instinct is that if we do it should be very much on our terms. He's been a good player to have around, but the time he's spent off the pitch should be a red herring flag (herring indeed!

Getting Serious

It's been a summer marred by disappointment for U.S. Soccer. Most notably there was the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final collapse against Mexico by the U.S. Men's National Team and the loss to Japan in the Women's World Cup Final by the U.S. Women's National Team.

But while those two defeats may have garnered the most attention, the youth national teams on the men's side were also falling well short of expectations.

Heaps Happy with the Talent

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. After Wednesday's practice, Jay Heaps took a moment to reflect on where he feels his team is six games into the season.

Sure, there are still improvements to be made. After all, the team's 2-4-0 record would seem to indicate that they're far from from becoming a finished product.

With a return to Wembley to face rivals Everton coming up in a few days, it was probably inevitable that most of the Liverpool news floating around the interwebs would be more worried about the near future than the immediate past. That's not entirely a bad thing, though. Because, you know, Liverpool are facing Everton on Saturday.

50 Years of Merseyside Derbies

Oh, You Beauty... at related • 0 views


There have been 217 Merseyside derbies in total. I limited this remembrance to the previous 122, those played in the last 50 years. Which is actually a handy dividing line, as Liverpool and Everton only met once between 1951 and 1962, in the '54-55 FA Cup (which Liverpool won), because of Everton then Liverpool's relegation to the Second Division.

As I'm sure every Liverpool fan remembers, Steven Gerrard almost became a Chelsea player on two separate occasions during the mid-2000s. Thankfully, he decided to stay at Anfield, but almost 7 years later, Gerrard still hasn't won what he desires the most: the league title.

Time is running out for Liverpool's captain, and former Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage believes that Gerrard must leave Anfield if he is to achieve that goal:

"I'm sure Gerrard doesn't regret turning down Chelsea and Real Madrid in summer 2005 to stay with Liverpool.

The first soccer jersey I purchased was as stereotypical as it was ill-advised. Like most barely-adolescent Americans attracted to football in the early 2000s, I faced the difficult task of keeping abreast of a sport in a country where domestic media coverage began and ended with blooper reels.

Great Football League Teams 37: Leyton Orient 2005-06

Hot on the heels of John McGee's well-received Brighton yesterbation, Orient supporter Chris Roberts takes us back to the mid 2000s and 'that' goal at Oxford. Early in my career, I was advised never to start a presentation with an apology. Similarly, I should probably have avoided beginning a piece on a lower league football team with a well-worn cliché, but it's undeniable that life for Leyton Orient fans under Barry Hearn's chairmanship has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride, although there have been more downs than ups.
