Posted on 19 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

Brendan Rodgers couldn’t have asked for a worst Premier League debut with Liverpool – Losing 0-3 to West Brom at the Hawthorns while losing his most important defender, Daniel Agger, to a questionable red card and also watching Joe Cole leaving the match injured, which is pretty much a given every time he’s on the pitch.

Does this mean this will be Bayern Munich’s year? Probably not, but at least the five match losing streak for Bayern against Dortmund is over. Two quick goals from Martio Mandzukic and Thomas Muller, giving Bayern the two goal lead after only 11 minutes was enough to secure their first win over Dortmund in more than two seasons, winning their fifth German Super Cup with a 2-1 win.

Fernando Torres Opener Not Enough in Charity Shield (Manchester City vs Chelsea)

Posted on 12 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

Played at Villa Park, the 2012 Charity Shield went to the champions, deservedly so, outplaying a pretty similar Chelsea to the one we saw last season in terms of style and what they try to accomplish in the match. Manchester City won 3-2 with goals from Yaya Toure, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri, while the FA Cup holders were mostly hurt by the sending off of Branislav Ivanovic. More

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Debut – Perfect; PSG’s? Not so Much

Posted on 12 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

Putting money on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to finish 2012-2013 as the top scorer and player of the season in France is an easy decision to make. He began his Ligue 1 career by scoring twice to save PSG from an opening day defeat at home against Lorient, which might show that PSG won’t have it as easy, at least in the early goings, as most have predicted.

Oribe Peralta Surprisingly Shines in Olympic Football Gold Medal Match (Mexico vs Brazil)

Posted on 11 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

This was supposed to be it for Brazil, but no matter how talented their teams over the years tend to be, the gold medal is always a bit out of reach.

Posted on 9 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

The 5-1 scoreline doesn’t lie. Except for a few moments in the first half, the new and downgraded AC Milan hardly had any touches throughout the match, while Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice and Angel Di Maria delivered a beautiful goal to open the match, with a world of difference between the two teams in the New York friendly.

Lionel Messi and Nothing Much Else (Barcelona vs Manchester United)

Posted on 9 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

It’s been more than 3 years since Manchester United met Barcelona in the Champions League final, and not much has changed, except for the Barcelona head coach. Lionel Messi is the best player on the pitch, with almost anything good Barca produce during his time on the pitch, while his team’s depth and quality was once again too much for Ferguson’s men to handle.

Lionel Messi and friends testing the New Mega Club (Barcelona vs PSG)

Posted on 5 Aug, 2012, by in Soccer

While Barcelona aren’t at full capacity yet, with Tito Vilanova still trying and tweaking things in his lineup, PSG are up and running with their strongest possible starting XI. After making a few big changes and maybe still yet to come, with the ambitions they have, there’s no use in gradually trying to blend the new players. More
