Posted on 22 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

The problems aren’t over for Tottenham, finding it quite difficult not just to get out of their poor form, but also find a manager to replace Andre Villas-Boas. Franco Baldini has offered his resignation which was rejected by Daniel Levy, while Roberto Di Matteo, Roberto Mancini and Murat Yakin remain as the leading men to take over the managerial position.

The Sexy Football Calendar of 2014

Posted on 31 Oct, 2013, by in Babes

In 2013, it was all about the managers. In 2014, the sexy football calendar takes shots at the big wigs of the sport (Sepp Blatter, Michel Platini) and a player or two as well, giving a sexy, funny and insulting vision on some of the sport’s most powerful people, which shouldn’t be taken seriously all the time.

Chelsea FC – Juan Mata & Eden Hazard to Bring Trophies the Right Way

Posted on 2 May, 2013, by in Soccer

No one remembers, or wants to at least, ugly champions. Chelsea won the Champions League last season, but it was through uninspiring, painful to watch football, “robbing” more worthy teams of their just due. Juan Mata was part of that team, but that victorious ending isn’t attributed to him, or the style his presence on the pitch is usually for. This season, with a lesser trophy up for grabs, and as a foundation for the future, the Spanish international wants to win playing attractive football. More

Chelsea FC – Manager Stability Needed

Posted on 28 Apr, 2013, by in Soccer

The only thing separating Manchester United and Chelsea during the Roman Abramovich era is the man on the bench. While Manchester United have had the same manager at the same seat during those 10 seasons, Chelsea have been through nine of them, and Rafa Benitez, the most recent one, isn’t going to stay once this season is over.

Chelsea FC – The Managers Circus of Roman Abramovich

Posted on 4 Dec, 2012, by in Soccer

Once every few years, Roman Abramovich loves to throw his team into a tailspin. A few matches without really getting the required results were enough to get Roberto Di Matteo fired. Rafa Benitez, barely two weeks on his new job, is already at the risk of losing the position of Chelsea manager. More

Chelsea FC – Fernando Torres Can’t Score vs Ex

Posted on 12 Nov, 2012, by in Soccer

A comeback goal from John Terry signaled it would be a great day for Chelsea, but he was taken off the pitch shortly after from a collision. It was up to Eden Hazard and Juan Mata to pick up the slack and find the net, but they couldn’t and grew tired and ineffective as the match drew on, while the man who wanted to score more than everyone, Fernando Torres, was taken off goalless once more.

Chelsea FC – Fernando Torres Scores But Doesn’t Impress

Posted on 8 Nov, 2012, by in Soccer

Like his entire team, this isn’t a match that Fernando Torres would like to remember. Yes, he poached a goal in the opening minutes of the game, but didn’t do much else for the rest of it. Just like Oscar before the end of the half. For the second time in two weeks, Chelsea were outclassed by a better side, only this time had enough of a head start to win. More

Chelsea FC – Fernando Torres Keeps Disappearing

Posted on 4 Nov, 2012, by in Soccer

It was bound to be a tough away visit for Chelsea at Swansea; a week of thinking about referees and racism wasn’t helpful preparation. Not being an aggressive, physical side, like the ones that make the Welsh team shake in its boots, was going to be another problem. Having Fernando Torres reverting back to last season’s form and confidence levels is more of the same. More

Chelsea FC – The Problems Beyond Juan Mata & Eden Hazard

Posted on 29 Oct, 2012, by in Soccer

The easy thing for Chelsea would be to simply blame the referee, and think to themselves that Juan Mata and Eden Hazard being brilliant would have been enough to beat Manchester United. But despite the official complaints for racism against Mark Clattenburg, Chelsea have their own problems. More

Everybody Wants Pep Guardiola

Posted on 28 Oct, 2012, by in Soccer

Three La Liga titles and two Champions League trophies in four seasons, even if he did have the most talented group of players ever assembled, helps you on your resume. Pep Guardiola has been out of a job, by choice, for five months now, and it looks like every big club in the continent (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Milan, Inter and even Barcelona) are thinking about him.
