El Tri Is About To Miss Out On The One Man Who Can Save It From Itself

Marcelo Bielsa is one of the most respected coaches in the world. Accordingly, it is no surprise that fans of El Tri and the Mexican media have tipped him as one of the favorites to fill the current Mexican managerial void.

Drogba Lands In Montreal, Penedo Leaves LA And Other Big MLS Transfers

Drogba lands in Montreal

Everyone's likely already heard that Didier Drogba has signed with the Montreal Impact, a team that recently put up a second place result in the CONCACAF Champion's League.

Why Müller Will Replace Schweinsteiger As Bayern Munich’s Hero

At the end of this past season there were numerous rumors about Bastian Schweinsteiger leaving Bayern Munich.

Van Der Vaart’s Wasted Talent Shows Us How Unfair Life Can Be

Life is unfair, but no one needs to tell that to Rafael van der Vaart.

He should have been an amazing player, and by most accounts he was. The man had incredible passing ability, and a canny knowledge of how to attack.

A Cold Farewell For Iker Casillas Hints At A Bigger Problem For Madrid

Real Madrid is stuck in a sticky spot after they let longtime goalkeeper Iker Casillas go on to Porto after 25 years with the club. To replace him Real Madrid is looking to make a deal for Manchester United keeper David De Gea, but it looks like the Red Devils won’t be willing to let him go without Sergio Ramos in exchange.

A solemn farewell to Casillas leaves backup keeper Jesus Navas, who is also Costa Rica’s first choice keeper. He had a great World Cup, but had a dismal first season for Real Madrid.
