We here at The18 understand that as passionate as soccer fans are, we’re also a diverse group with a large variety of interests. Even the most ardent of soccer fans may need a weekend off from time to time.

Fortunately, the schedule makers at the English Premier League released their fixture list Wednesday and there are plenty of weekends with the excitement level of your nephew’s U-7 match. 

Keep these dates in mind when making plans for your wedding, a road trip or an all-weekend bender (please drink responsibly).

Only An Idiot Would Watch The EFL Cup But Not The U.S. Open Cup

2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup action resumes today and tomorrow with the fourth round, and I'll forgive you for not knowing that, but I'll never forget.

Obviously Zlatan is going to come back. He is Zlatan, after all. The question is where, and that is a question for another day. Today, we must wrap our heads around the fact that we actually kind of liked Manchester United for a bit there, when they had Zlatan and Pogba doing Zlatan things and Pogba things.

This Robot Will Protect British People From Hooligans At Russia 2018

After all the commotion at Euro 2016, there have been concerns that Russian hooligans are going to attack British fans at the World Cup in 2018. Fortunately, that worry has been taken care of.

Meet AlanTim, a robot that, in addition to having two first names, can call the police on hooligans, use logic to reason with hooligans, anticipate conflics before they happen and even wear a bowtie.

To prove AlanTim's effectiveness, the Moscow Technical Institute made this video, in which AlanTim is shown interacting positively with a man who has tattoos.

Later this week, England will play Scotland in a World Cup qualifier/remake of Mel Gibson's hit movie Braveheart. As such, England trained with the Royal Marines in order to better prepare themselves for, uh, something. Siege engines probably.
