Timewasting

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
In the wake of Fabrice Muamba's near death experience last year it is obvious that match officials, already under plenty of pressure, now must keep their wits about them when a player goes down. Is it genuine or is it another case of timewasting? Decisions must be taken quickly and those seconds after the player has gone to ground could be the difference between life and death.

By Chris Wright

Back in 2011, for reasons largely unclear, millions of people were enticed by a video posted on Youtube of a chap chasing an errant Labrador named 'Fenton' through Richmond Park.

Sadly, we have to admit that this 'viral' phenomenon passed us by entirely at the time, but we need wallow in pathetic ignorance no more, for the combined wits of Alan Shearer, Iain Dowie and Graham Fenton (who, if you remember, shares his name with a certain hound) have shown us the way recreating the 'Fenton' video with a delightful little sketch before their PFA Legends tournament in Barbados.

Lets put this in the friendliest of terms, there is no amistoso when it comes to these two countries, on the pitch. At the MetLife Stadium, 80,000 + fans many of them who had lubed up with plenty of beer and bbq in the hundreds of tailgating parties dotting the parking lots were treated to a brilliant exposition of attacking football.

New England Soccer Today at related • 0 views

In the six seasons of Toronto's existence, there haven't been many must-see games between the Reds and Revolution. Correction. There haven't been any must-see matches between the so-called conference rivals.

Sure, we've seen moments of brilliance unfold. Michael Parkhurst's 55-yard goal in 2007 comes to mind.

The survivalist adventures of bearded Andrea Pirlo

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

In the summer of 2012, sometime between Italy's 4-0 loss to Spain in the final of the European Championship and the start of Juventus' preseason friendlies, Andrea Pirlo retreated from the putrid society of man. He rose above the murders and deceit, the wars and corruption. He sacrificed all of his worldly possessions and took up residence in a fortified bunker high up in the Alps with just his axe, his wits and his beard for comfort.

Klopas vs Yallop in San Jose: A Tale of Two Games

Last year San Jose Earthquakes physically beat up and outworked a Fire team that could ill afford a loss. It was one of those very questionable losses that you could see coming a mile away. For whatever reason Frank Klopas deployed an odd lineup. Some of this was due to suspensions (Sega was suspended for last year's game in San Jose as well) but others were coaching decisions.
