We've probably annoyed you with our opinion at some point.

A friend told me about Pique's new soccer league, and I have to say, I looked into it and became a huge fan. And I bet you will become a fan once you learn about it. I'm writing this to help bridge that gap.

Juventus is in yet another scandal. This one is better or worse, depending on how you look at it, than the last scandal that saw them relegated in 2006. That time they were match-fixing, and this time around, they were falsifying financial information, which can be viewed as a form of match-fixing since you can now afford players you would...

Every half-decade, tactics change as coaches constantly seek a cutting edge. Long gone are the days when tactics shifted only every few decades as coaches utilized a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 with little tactical nuance.

The Acquisition of Donovan Mitchell has proved to be an early success. Mitchell has been playing at an all-star level and is flirting...

What is a footballmerate? Footballmerates are kind of like franchising. When I say franchising, I'm not talking about the term franchise as used in American sports. I'm talking about franchising as in business, where corporations open multiple locations globally to maximize their reach and influence. In this case, we are heading for a future where...

For what it is worth, I think players like Trent Alexander-Arnold are the future of the sport. Truly position-less marvels that do not fit well in the rigid roles of most modern tactics. An entity well ahead of his time, he exists in the ethers of the game, not suited for any traditional position but remaining much too talented to...
