Hackers Reveal Young Footballers Like To Party, Pwn World Anti-Doping Agency

Russian hackers Fancy Bears dropped a complete non-story this week regarding the use of banned substances in soccer. You see, the typical SHOCKING TRUTHS UNCOVERED AND REVEALED that we’ve come to associate with hacking were nonexistent in this information dump, which is insane given football’s history of being corrupt to the core.

Watch Daniel English Score An Incredible Goal for the England Blind Team

Here’s your football fact of the day: the England Blind team is a force to be reckoned with. The IBSA Blind Football European Championships kicked off last week in Berlin and the English side has made it known that they are the team to beat after 6-0 and 7-0 whoopings of Romania and France, respectively. 

They’re just as much about quality as they are about quantity as Daniel English proved, however. Against Les Blues on Monday, the England player went on this brilliant solo run to score in just the first minute of the game.

It's Time To Jump To Conclusions On What Manchester City And Everton Paid For This Summer

What does $60.25 million get you? How about $57.35 million? $47.25 million? If you’re Manchester City or Everton on Monday, not much — they’d have been better off with freebies. 

Big-money signings Kyle Walker, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Ederson and Jordan Pickford underwhelmed for their new clubs Monday and it wasn’t pretty. Free transfer Wayne Rooney and oft-forgettable Raheem Sterling scored in a 1-1 draw between Everton and Manchester City at the Etihad.

Jack Wilshere has had a rough go. Unable to cement a place in the Arsenal first team because of injuries, Wilshere spent last season on loan with Bournemouth, and now the 25-year-old has found himself playing with Arsenal's U-23s.

Evidently, he is not happy about it. He is certainly not happy about something. 

Bournemouth's Harry Arter Saved A Goal By Yelling At Watford's Nathaniel Chalobah

Watford beat Bournemouth 2-0 on Saturday because Watford are better than most of us expected and Bournemouth are still bad. The Cherries can lay claim to the best play of the match, though, in Harry Arter's goal-saving shout at Nathaniel Chalobah.

Marcos Alonso’s Spectacular Brace Spoils Tottenham’s Wembley Opener

Chelsea got their title defense back on track with a massive 2-1 victory over Tottenham in their temporary Wembley home on Sunday. Wing-back Marcos Alonso scored the first ever Premier League goal at Wembley with a sweetly struck free kick, and with a 1-1 draw looking likely, he swept forward to score the winner in the 88th. 

Alonso’s piece of brilliance in the 24th minute was the highlight of an enthralling opening 45 minutes between two of England’s best sides.  

Huddersfield Town Retain Invincibles Status For Another Week

With a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United, Huddersfield Town rose to second place in the Premier League table, sitting behind Manchester United on goal difference alone. We’re only two weeks into the season, but the Terriers are off to an almighty flyer in the top division.

German-American coach David Wagner and his squad are Invincibles.  

This week’s result isn’t as eye-catching as their 3-0 win over Crystal Palace, but Huddersfield looked exceptionally more qualified for life in the Premier League than fellow newcomers Newcastle.
