Matthew McConaughey, minority owner of incoming MLS club Austin FC and Texan renaissance man, appeared on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert this week to drink bourbon and talk about watching Survivor. While CBS aired a lengthy interview, an unaired segment posted to YouTube the next day showed what we really wanted to see: a Matthew McConaughey Austin FC starting XI of Austinites.
Time waits for no one at FC Barcelona, but there’s a feeling in Catalonia that this squad — the club’s youngest in the last decade — has an incredibly promising core of young talent centered around the likes of Ansu Fati, Francisco Trincão and Sergiño Dest.
Few have been as outspoken against the 45th president of the United States as Megan Rapinoe. Asked if she’d go to the White House if the USWNT won the 2019 World Cup, she responded: “I’m not going to the fucking White House.”
On Thursday, the 2019 Ballon d’Or winner spoke about having a dad who actually supported the man who lost the 2020 presidential election.
Megan Rapinoe is one of the world’s best footballers — her trophy cabinet alone serves as proof: two Women’s World Cup winner’s medals, an Olympic gold medal and a Ballon d’Or. But the USWNT superstar and global icon divulged something on the Tonight Show this week that many athletes would never admit: She’s more of an entertainer than an athlete.
It’s been way too long since we last saw USWNT players in action. The last time the four-time World Cup champs took the pitch was at the SheBelieves Cup in March, and the world has changed a bit since then. So it was great to see most of the USWNT back together for a late-October training camp in Colorado — and it was even better to hear Kelley O’Hara and Ali Krieger mic’d up for practice.
I’ve become addicted to FIFA 21 Pro Clubs. I think a part of it is that I miss playing the actual game so damn much that Pro Clubs has given me the endorphins I crave by way of reassuming my CDM position, clattering loose touches, linking defense to attack and experiencing the thrill of teamwork making the dream work.
It’s fun, alongside four strangers turned comrades on the field of battle, to embarrass five other strangers to the point of rage quitting.
No club’s training videos are watched more than those of Barcelona. Practice highlight videos are for Barća what Among Us streams are for every wannabe Twitch star right now: easy clicks.
Even with all of the club’s top players out on international duty (no Lionel Messi), Barcelona posted another training video to YouTube this week that’s received more than 260,000 views in 24 hours. All to watch what basically amounted to a USMNT practice.
When Jack Charlton passed back in July at the age of 85, the English footballer and manager left behind one of the most towering legacies in the history of the game.
A legendary one-club man who represented Leeds United over 600 times while winning the 1968-69 First Division and the 1971-72 FA Cup, Charlton was also capped 35 times by England and played a massive role in his country’s 1966 World Cup triumph.
