Brazil, battered and bruised, will start again. A lightly slapped England will do bugger all. Again.
Brazil's 7-1 loss at the hands of Germany shocked the football world. The recklessness of Brazil's defending in their FIFA World Cup semi-final was matched by Germany's clinical finishing and the last hour of the match was pl...

In March, I wrote that Ben Olsen was up against it at +D.C. United in his make-or-break season.

I am an idiot.
Sometimes in life there are lessons to be learned. They can be purely retrospective, tainted with regret and helplessness, learned too late for anything to be done. The lesson I've learned about DC United head coach Ben Olsen...

Major League Soccer is back. Here's the #MLS  Week 15 roundup.
With the FIFA World Cup group stage over, Major League Soccer returned a week ago and got off to a fairly timid start. The national team's participation in the second round in Brazil dominated global headlines, but it's back ...

I wrote about Metallica's secret live weapon ages ago and didn't put it anywhere, but it 'The Memory Remains' was a triumph at Glastonbury last night. Why? Because it always, always is.
The Memory Remains has no right to be a Metallica classic. Born of a mid-90s, short-haired, unrecognisable band in desperate need of refining its identity, many of its fellow tracks from the underwhelming Load and ReLoad albu...

Memory, Outlaw Torn, and Bleeding Me are probably the only things on the Loads worth saving.

Should England have called Ashley Cole up for the World Cup? (No.)
England's performance against Italy in Group D of the 2014 FIFA World Cup on Saturday was largely positive despite the result not going their way. But there were a few players who did disappoint. Steven Gerrard and Wayne Roon...

Week 17 #MLS  roundup by a guy I like to call "me".
The nearest weekend to the Fourth of July is always a bit special in Major League Soccer, with a few matches on the night itself. Here's your snapshot of all the Week 17 action. Ten-man Toronto FC survived an hour short-hand...

Louis van Gaal's decision to bring Tim Krul on for the Netherlands' penalty shoot-out against Costa Rica hasn't yet been proven successful. (I think it will be, but it hasn't yet.)
Jasper Cillessen of the Netherlands became the second goalkeeper to be substituted uninjured at the 2014 FIFA World Cup yesterday. Louis van Gaal replaced him with Tim Krul in the final seconds of extra time, the Newcastle Un...

I finally wrote about #AVFC  retweeting morons all the time.
All too often social media remains a public relations bolt-on or becomes an unwelcome extension to the in-house journalists' remit at football clubs. Not every Premier League club has a specialist, a reality I just can't get ...

Bad "blogger" relations still dominates compared to good. Some basic reminders...
A recent post by Amber McNaught focused on some of the fundamental mistakes made by brands and their PR representatives in dealing with bloggers. I've been a "blogger" - whatever that actually means - for a decade, in one for...

The #USMNT  did Jurgen Klinsmann and the #WorldCup  proud yesterday, and Major League Soccer provided the spine.
The second Sunday of the 2014 FIFA World Cup briefly looked like it might stink up the joint like a pervy parent at a house party. South Korea and Algeria put paid to that in the second Group H game of the day before yet anot...

This is the way you wanted it, remember?
The 2014 FIFA World Cup hasn't exactly been short of talking points so far but one moment left a few familiar personalities short of a yarn to spin on Sunday evening. Karim Benzema was the star man in France's Group E win ove...
