Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

Few Seattle Sounders games have proven the axiom 'you can't score if you don't shoot' more than Saturday night's 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire. Whether it was David Estrada's shot that became an own goal or the effective poach by Eddie Johnson, Seattle's goals did not come from pretty attempts. Instead the goals were rewards for a boldness that rarely results in a tally on the score sheet.

The Tottenham home kit was leaked here a few short days ago, but it's now been officially released:

1/5 Stars
Oh how I rue shirt sponsorships. The plain-front version of this shirt was at least classy; the sponsored version looks flat out cheap. The lack of any secondary design or trim whatsoever draws unwanted attention (at least in the eyes of everyone outside of Autonomy - the parent of the Aurasma technology) towards the sponsor.

The Viper's Nest at related • 0 views
This wasn't how the New York Red Bulls wanted to start their 2012 campaign. Facing a tough task at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday, up against one of MLS' most talented and organized sides, RBNY didn't come close to measuring up and now find themselves 0-2 on the young season. Through two games the Red Bulls have shown many of the same weaknesses that plagued them in 2011 - mental errors, defensive lapses, disorganization and a toothless midfield that seems incapable of linking play.

Anton Hysen Shines A Light On Footballs Insular Mentality

Twohundredpercent at related • 1 view

A footballer came out of the closet last weekend. Anton Hysén, as you will likely have read over the last few days, gave an interview with the Swedish football magazine Offside in which he confirmed his sexuality. Hysen plays for Utsiktens BK in the fourth tier of the Swedish league system (which, in a manner similarly confusing to that in England, is called Division Two) and, if this were any other matter, the biggest aspect of any story concerning Anton Hysén would be that his father is Glenn Hysén, the former Liverpool defender and captain of Sweden (who, for the record, has already expressed his support for his son publically).

Torres in Blue First impressions of Fernando is a post from: Just Football

by Joe Steppel

How do you solve a problem like Fernando? The question itself sounds like the foundation upon which a melodramatic Andrew Lloyd Webber reality show would be based. Roman Abramovich sitting on his gilded chair, stroking his white cat as he casts his gaze over Stamford Bridge; his finger hovering over the eject-o-button with Carlo Ancelotti's name emblazoned across it in the colours of il Tricolore.
