Dempsey burns another hole in the back of the net

There’s arguably no one hotter than American midfielder Clint Dempsey in the Premier League these days.

Fabrice Muamba showing slow signs of recovery after collapse

It’s not normal for a young man in any sort of shape to suffer a heart attack, but what happened to British midfielder Fabrice Muamba is beyond shocking. The 23-year-old collapsed in the middle of a match for his Bolton squad against Tottenham on March 17, despite being a physical specimen training and performing at [...]

Stretchered off contributors have Brisbane stretched thin

The game itself ended in a 1-1 draw. The outcome, however, was not the major headline in Brisbane’s match with Adelaide as Suncorp Stadium as the A-League season approaches its conclusion. Already competing with a short bench, thanks to shoulder and groin injuries to midfielders Massimo Murdocca and Mitch Nichols, respectively, Brisbane had the misfortune [...]

According to Silva, after the Madrilenos couldn’t work out a deal to bring the 26-year-old to Spain, they [...]

Three-goal rally propels Arsenal in FA Cup battle

It’s been a long seven years for Arsenal in the FA Cup, but a big comeback earlier this week has them back on track.

Chelsea and Willian appear to be perfect match

Pursuing Brazilians as additions is all the rage so far this year, and Chelsea, never a squad to lose the battle of the headlines, is looking to add scoring midfielder Willian. The 23-year-old South American currently plies his trade in the Ukraine for Shakhtar Donetsk, and has been on Chelsea’s radar for about six months [...]

Barca dances with delight once again at Madrid

There’s nothing wrong with Real Madrid, a squad of talented footballers with perhaps the second best player in the sport and the second best roster in the sport. The problem is that the best player plays for the best team, and that squad is none other than FC Barcelona.

Struggling Rangers hot after pair of Brazilian stars

No relegation, please. That appears to be the message that QPR management is sending by flirting with bringing on not one but two star Brazilian national teamers. The two names to know are Alex and Henrique (remember, they’re Brazilian, so they don’t need two stinkin’ names like the rest of us). The team’s new manager, [...]
