The VAR controversy is dangerous to the modern game, but there is another issue — a serious player safety concern — that is being carelessly overlooked because of the VAR commotion. 

Man City’s Dominance Has Only Added To The Mental Fog Of Late-Stage Pandemic

There was a point in Manchester City’s 21-game win streak where we ran out of things to say. To watch them is to immediately understand the profundity of Pep Guardiola’s highly drilled machinations and the osmosis of an obsession with spatial perception (here comes João Cancelo into the midfield); that and the recognition of İlkay Gündoğan as an absolute monster of the No. 8 position. 

Vacant Space: 7 Matches From This Past Year That Covid Prevented From Being Classics

When we look back at football in 2020/21 over the years to come, there will be no classics, no games to remember — because without fans, matches just don't have the same impact.

The Most Famous Footballers Who Played For Rival Clubs

In soccer, rivalries are an important part because playing a “Derby” or “Clásico” is a privilege. However, a special flavor to these duels is tasted when remembering those players who, without any remorse, put on the shirt of the hated rival and played for both teams. These are the authentic "Judases" of soccer that will remain in history for their controversial passage from one team to another.

Manchester: De “Cottonopolis” A “Footballopolis” En Un Abrir Y Cerrar De Ojos

Revolución industrial, guerras, capitalismo, liberalismo, comunismo,  socialismo, democracia, absolutismo, soberanía, independencia, constitución, leyes, derechos humanos y demás términos acuñados por las sociedades de la época para situarnos en el contexto histórico determinado para algunos, o para amargarle la vida a otros tantos cuando cursaban historia universal o cívica en bachillerato.

Have A Hit Son: The Decline Of Long-Range Shooting In Modern Football

Memories of the Premier League 10-15 years ago conjure up very specific visions, with the nostalgia usually centering around someone hitting the piss out of a classic Nike ball.

No 2000s soccer mixtape was complete without some random gangly defender hitting a 40-yard rocket to the top corner, Wayne Rooney burying a dipping half-volley or a center midfielder charging forward and doing unspeakable things to a one-touch shot from long range.

Liverpool’s Curtis Jones Dedicates Game-Winning Goal To Alisson After Father’s Death

Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones dedicated his goal in Sunday's Premier League win at Sheffield United to goalkeeper Alisson Becker whose father passed away last week.

José Becker, 57, drowned in a lake near his holiday home in southern Brazil last Wednesday, local police said.
