In a move rarely undertaken in modern football, Serie A side Sampodria look set to terminate the contract of one of their star players, Antonio Cassano, thus forsaking the money they could have gotten for him by selling him in January. So grave is the situation between the club and the player, that it now […]

As we saw in the past week how much power modern footballers have, it’s nice to see them using it in a positive way every once in a while.

Claudio Pizarro has become the highest-scoring foreigner in the history of the Bundeslia after scoring in Werder Bremen’s impressive 4-1 away victory to Borussia Moenchengladbach. This was his 134th goal, which broke the record by Brazilian Giovane Elber, who scored his 133 goals for Stuttgart and Bayern Munich a decade ago. It is a well […]

In a rather direct follow-up to the Rooney story, the reason for the striker’s U-turn on his decision to stay at United most certainly looks to have been the news that United have been given £100 million (yes, British pounds) to spend over the next year.

One of the strangest news stories you’ll hear all week in any sport has to be the condition Bordeaux midfielder Yoan Gouffran has developed. The 24 year-old footballer has become allergic to grass, which has to be one of the funniest (not if you’re him of course) conditions you can develop as a footballer. After […]

No, England and the USA will not be hosting a joint World Cup (maybe when we finally invent teleportation), but they have combined their efforts to try to make sure they get to host the competitions that they choose. For this purpose, the English have officially withdrawn their bid to host the 2022 World Cup, […]

The Serbian FA has asked UEFA to replay their abandoned Euro 2012 qualifier vs. Italy, which was stopped after only 6 minutes by the referee due to crowd trouble. The Serbian fans had been wrecking havoc through Genoa, even attacking their own team bus earlier during the day, and when they started throwing flairs on […]
