Are playoffs soon to be a thing of the past?
Thursday, 28 February 2013

Playoffs make for great television, but do they make for good football?

As more and more countries look to the EPL, as the model for a successful national league, playoffs are being dropped in favor of league championships calculated over the course of a season. But is this the right move?

The latest country to take the axe to their playoff-style season is Chile. As this year’s Tornero Apertura, the Chilean national league season, kicks off, the set up mirrors the English Premier League, a far cry from the structure of years past.

Bale and CR7 teammates? YES! but where?
Monday, 25 February 2013
There has been a lot of chatter over the past couple of seasons that Gareth Bale would and should leave Spurs and play for a team that will win silverware. Therefore, if this is true, he can only go to Man Utd or Barca, as there is no guarantee that Man City or Real Madrid are capable of winning anything! This is because Real Madrid will lose Jose this summer and potentially CR7 and without them Madrid will have to rebuild. City is a mess and Mancini is still struggling to get any sort of long-term team chemistry and therefore will struggle to compete for silverware constantly.
The Managers have spoken, but are they right?
Monday, 24 December 2012
Many managers over the past few days have made some extreme statements and in some case have been criticized for doing so, but were they that extreme? Sir Alex has always been known for his passive demeanor, thoughtful and understated assessments of situations and events, so his comments around the Van Persie incident was no surprise! His observation was as follows "You can clearly see that [van Persie] could have been killed," Sir Alex said. "[Williams] should be banned for a long time because that was the most dangerous thing I've seen on a football field for many years … Robin is lucky to be alive, he could have had a broken neck."
