Copa America

Chile 2015

After an exciting and mind-boggling year of premier league competitions and un-expected comebacks by teams to win the leagues which even their die-hard fans couldn’t expect. The craze for watching football late in the nights with intense pressure on the viewers whether their football heroes who they are supporting are going to lift the cup which determines the continental champions of South America.Copa-America-2015Host Chile will kick off the 44th edition of the Copa America this Thursday taking on Ecuador. The host country is looking forward to end one of the most depressing and embarrassing records of not being the continental champions even once, when even Bolivia, Paraguay, Colombia and Peru- hardly known powerhouses of football have at least one trophy in their name, but still can get the respect of ending up being runners up four times, with the last time being runners up in 1987. The captain and goalkeeper of the host country canonized that the pressure is on those countries who have lifted the trophy most often. read more

2006 WORLD CUP: BEST ONE EVER!

 Before I start, let me clarify that I am considering the world cups which I have watched. I rather not comment about the ones before 2002, because I haven’t seen them live, so to not upset the pompous, bombastic and loud mouthed so-called football puritans and elitists. read more

Shaolin Soccer- American style!

Puzzled and somewhat entertained was honestly my reaction when I finished or rather endured watching the” Yale” goalkeeper save 5 penalty shots..let alone using only his face! And what a sight his face was after the plight… This I can say for certain that the shaolin monks never saw this one coming. All I could possibly relate to this anomaly is the mother of all parodies in the world of football; “Shaolin Soccer”! Ooh yes, nothing is more thrilling to football fans than having Kung-Fu in it…but if Shaolin Soccer was like an embodiment of Kung-Fu fictitiously into Football this seemed like a bare knuckle boxing match! Where it could be argued that ball may have won. read more

Holding Midfielder: Forgotten Hero

As fans of the wonderful game of football, we never recognise (forget praise) these brand of footballers called ‘central deep lying midfielders’. They may not be known for their goal scoring prowess, or for their assists too but to know their true importance ask the recognised managers and the football players of their respective teams. I am talking about players like Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Michael Carrick, Daley Blind etc. read more

Football Fans- The 12th Man

It is generally said that the supporters act as the twelfth man in a game of eleven, and it is true. Why else would there be “home” and “away” matches… Football is probably soon becoming the common language in the world. It, not only is “a beautiful game” to watch and play, it’s more than that; it embodies the spirit of a particular community, it represents vast herds of people united behind the ideal of one team. All those unheard voices amongst the many, now behind in support of their team, heard; vividly, fiercely and unanimously. It truly is a gesture of conformity in the face of the “visitors” and the pride in the sense of belonging by calling home “home”. read more

Lost art of defending: Will the real defenders stand up

Take a look at this video:

Ignore the music please. Rapahel Varane absolutely destroys Barcelona. He not only intercepts the play but, boy, doesn’t he love his slide tackles. The way he tackled Messi and Fabregas was mind-boggling. There is a dearth of defenders like that now. read more

Why Eden Hazard should win the PFA best player of the year?

Since Eden hazard joined Chelsea in 2012 from Lille, he has performed exceptionally well for Chelsea. He has adapted well in the strongest league in the world. He scored 14 goals last season and created 7 goals for his team. But in this season for Chelsea Hazard has been the most influential man, already scoring 14 goals. He has 8 assists to his name this season. But to become PFA player of the season those stats exclusively will not help, one has to be different. That’s been the case for some time especially with Eden Hazard. read more
