At the age of 25, Paulo Dybala’s already conquered much of the footballing world — fitting for a man that celebrates his goals by donning a figurative gladiator mask. This season marks his fifth with Italian power Juventus, and every previous year has finished with a Serie A title to go along with three Coppa Italia triumphs.
Everton fans hate Liverpool. They’re too flashy, they think they have a monopoly on bad singing and they just win too damn much.
The Merseyside Derby, unlike many of the world’s great soccer rivalries, is different because of the proximity of the two clubs — Anfield and Goodison Park are a literal stone’s throw from each other. This intimacy engenders deep resentment between the two clubs — Everton fans jealous of Liverpool’s money and success and Liverpool fans jealous of actually attracting fans from Liverpool instead of abroad.
Real Madrid fans are unique. As supporters of the most successful club in the history of Europe — if not the world — they look down on all others, especially that pesky club from Catalonia.
The only club that can really challenge Los Blancos’ superiority in Spain is, of course, Barcelona, so the rivalry is understandable intense. No other team brings out the best (or worst) in Real.
In Felipe’s case, it was the worst.
Guadalajara vs. Club América, Chivas vs. Las Águilas, El Súper Clásico — because that tame El Clásico over in Spain isn’t super enough.
Two of Mexico’s biggest clubs are also two of Liga MX’s biggest rivals, not just because they’re constantly going head-to-head on the pitch but because they have two distinct styles of going about their business. One’s called the Millionaires, the other the Goat Gang.
Reseñas De Rivales: Hicimos A Este Superfan Del Barcelona Realizar Una Reseña De Una Playera De Sergio Ramos
El Clásico es un partido como ningún otro. La pasión, el amor y el odio entre los hinchas del Real Madrid y el Barcelona no tiene rival y los dos clubes definen el fútbol español.
Pero, ¿qué pasaría si un fan del Barcelona tuviera que decir algo bonito sobre el Real Madrid? ¿Podría hacerlo?
Esa fue la tarea asignada a Will para nuestra última edición de Rival Reviews con World Soccer Shop.
Will, un fanático blaugrana acérrimo, fue traído bajo el disfraz de revisar la última equipación del Barça (un top a cuadros que adoramos).
Just like player announcement reveals, kit reveals in the footballing world have taken on a life of their own; who can forget when Reading launched its new kit into space for some reason? But the Southampton kit 2019-20 reveal may be the best stupid marketing video we’ve seen yet.
