More so than any other club, Tottenham Hotspur is at a crossroads. After selling Gareth Bale for a world record fee of 85 million pounds to Real Madrid, the North London club sputtered in the season following the star’s departure. They changed managers twice.

Rank the players most important to Manchester United this season

This is a critical season for Manchester United. After finishing 7th in the league during the 2013-14 campaign, this year will either see the club settle into mid-table or low Europa League slots, instead of the title winning, Champions League berth earning status the team has previously enjoyed. With Louis van Gaal taking the coaching reigns, expectations are high for the club...

Man United’s Luke Shaw proves fitness in 90 minutes for England

So much for the Luke Shaw “isn’t fit” narrative. Earlier this evening, Luke Shaw played 90 minutes in England Under 21s’ 2-1 win over Croatia in the Euro U21s; the first leg of the play-off. For his performance he was named “man of the match.” Yes, English football isn’t very stellar right now, as that World Cup showing (or lack there of) was abysmal. However, Shaw...

Todd Gurley: there’s NO ONE to root for in this story

The NCAA is beyond corrupt, hypocritical and amoral. This is best illustrated that players can’t profit even a red cent off their likeness while the NCAA signs $11 billion television deals.

Comparing Jay Cutler to Jeff George is a stale bit

There’s this idea floating amongst the NFL Punditocracy that Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler could be this generation’s answer to Jeff George. It’s an interesting comparison, as Jeff George was signed by the Bears in 2004. There are some statistical similarities. Jay Cutler has a much better record as a starter, but the passing stats are close. Both Rich Gannon and Boomer Esiason...
