The US Game Is Broken

Media in America likes to focus on Europe, because we all know Europe does everything better than us Americans do. We get to hear people talk about the English national team, that’s when we aren’t hearing or watching how screwed up the US system and national team can be. This isn’t

View From Across The Pond – Who Do We Think We Are?

Fans are fun. The love we have for our clubs is sometimes greater than our love for our significant others or family. We literally think that our voice matters to the players. We think that if we say it, sing it or show our love they’ll play harder for us. While there

View From Across The Pond – La Liga Sucks

  It is just Scottish football with more money and lapdogs. I love how certain, okay, all mainstream journalists flock to the fact that La Liga is in the same category as the German League or the Premier League. Let’s all laugh at that folks. While we are here, can

View From Across the Pond – January Window Worthless

So depressED, ranty columns are a big hit, who would have thought that? Well, it’s why I wrote them. But on a whole, the sport is amazing, unless you are a Cardiff fan, and you are miserable right now. Ah to digress. Now to start off 2014 on a better

My wish for the new year … I’m sure you guys missed your favorite ranty American over the Christmas break. The week off has made me think about what needs to happen in the sport next year, but surprisingly it won’t happen. Unlike Neymar getting every call when he trips

Neutering your fan. I’m pissed! Without getting too political here, the world has become way to PC (politically correct) for anyone. Gone are the days where you could say something on television, in the papers, and appearing in public that is controversial. We are too busy nowadays trying to be

Where have all the player managers gone? This title is inspired by me falling asleep to a nineties station on Pandora a couple nights ago, and that Paula Cole song “Where have all the Cowboys Gone” was on. She is the same lady who did the ‘Dawsons Creek’ theme (I’m a
