don’t make it about The Gamble

I don’t know what team can afford to rest players,” Óscar Tabárez told a room full of reporters in Samara last week, the day before Uruguay’s final World Cup group game against Russia. Tabárez’s team had already made it to the last 16 and rumours had spread there would be major changes to his starting XI. In response he fell back on a familiar phrase. “We do not speculate,” Tabárez announced. It is a…See More

Quintero a throwback to bygone

Amid the blaze of emotion of Colombia’s must-win match against Poland the manager, José Pekerman, lost his head. Juan Fernando Quintero had just slipped a perfectly weighted pass into the path of Radamel Falcao to score his first World Cup goal with a clipped outside-of-the-boot finish. Two-nil to Colombia and victory was in sight. As the weight of pressure subsided, the normally reticent Argentinian coach erupted in elation on the touchline. “Juan! Juan! Genius! Genius!

Brazilian with goalkeeping

Posted on July 23, 2018 at 10:16pm 0 Comments

Alisson may be a little more cautious in his approach to learning a new language this time around. Shortly after signing for Roma in 2016 the goalkeeper appeared on a TV talk show in his James Burgess Womens Jersey native Brazil. Asked by the host if he had learned how to curse in Italian, Alisson responded by turning the air blue.…

Keane out of Blackburns hands

Posted on July 23, 2018 at 2:38am 0 Comments

Historic moments usually have an epic quality. But sometimes all it takes to change the world is for a few office staff to get that Friday feeling. Exactly 25 years ago – in the summer of 1993 – the world of football changed for ever because the admin team at Ewood Park clocked off on time.

plans to sell Wembley to Fulham owner

Posted on July 22, 2018 at 9:14pm 0 Comments

Gary Neville has criticised as “ridiculous” the Football Association’s plan to sell Wembley stadium for the funding of grassroots facilities, saying the money should come from the wealthy Premier League clubs or via a 25% levy on agents’ fees. The former Manchester United and England defender said that £70m more grassroots funding annually could be found from the 20 Premier League clubs paying £3.5m each, and that the government should also invest more in sports facilities.…
