Wow, waking up just to see all those journalists crying on how Bilic (or Markovic rather) picks his friendlies ain’t the best way to start the morning. But seriously though, the journalism in Croatia is rubbish. Like fast food. It’s all around, lacks the attention & nutrition of a real meal, and in the end will leave you plunging the nearest available restroom. The newest whine came when the Croatian FA announced that our next friendly would be against Lichtenstein.

And while pretty much every league out there is halfway through and on winter break, the British are still marching on. This means it’s yet another Premiership exclusive weekend, but with one slight difference this time around: there’s plenty of good stuff to write about. So let’s get right to it. (more…)

Seeing as it’s only the crazy English people that like to spend their holidays on football grounds, there’s not much reviewing to do for this weekend. I’ll start with our North London woes. (more…)

What better way to get a blog back to life then start a new refreshing & original column. OK, never mind that latter bit, but it is Monday and I am gonna try and start a tradition here. So every first day of the week, I’ll have a brief look back on how our players fared over the weekend. ... [read more]
Despite nicking a few decent results in recent times (a draw with Portugal comes to mind), football’s minnows Lichtenstein proved to be nothing more than than a shy sparring partner to a mixed lineup of “Vatreni” that Bilic had come out with. Croatia came up with a convincing 5:0 victory, putting one past the visiting goalie as early as in ... [read more]

It’s official. The day before yesterday we officially missed out on World Cup 2010, making it the first big (biggest might be more appropriate) stage absence in our short but memorable footballing résumé (not counting Euro 2000 here). And as questions of why and how start knocking on (allegedly) responsible doors, I’ve decided to focus on some things that might ... [read more]
Club Football News
Radamel might've made the big money move to the Principality, but he's still only the second best Falcao with a ball at his feet this side of Jupiter - it's anyone's guess from there. The Other Falcao, the futsal edition, is still going strong and probably the only somewhat known ...
And she is very, very hospitable. Or welcoming. A quick Google will reveal...well it will reveal a lot. Such as Claudia is a very big fan of duck face, wet t-shirts, and more duck face. She's not a fan of clothing. This means she's like nearly every other Italian showgirl ...
If you've been paying attention to the pandemonium in Brazil, you might notice this football-mad country is pretty damn mad about some football, namely the World Cup (the Rio Olympics aren't helping either). Basically, just like everyone else who throws a big party, they're not happy with the costs and ...
Football is - sport in general, really - a great place for some creative hyperbole. "He shot it to the moon!" Well no, not really. "The defender has him in his back pocket." Diego Buonanotte or Maximiliano Moralez perhaps, but no one else. Today, we have a new one: "Boy, ...
Given Lecce has spent recent times bouncing between Serie A and Serie B, the dungeons of Italian football, where they were placed for doing all sorts of scandalous Italian things, aren't quite acceptable. The fans let their displeasure be known after failing in the playoffs for promotion back to Serie ...
Call it a week, call it a month, call it a summer. The battle is over. "Can I just stay here with you?" "Definitely not." One needn't have paid the slightest attention to Sebastien Squillaci's time at Arsenal to find the genius in this video. Every club should have one. [101gg] ...
The Guardian has gone and shaken some salt into several open wounds by unveiling the twenty worst sitter misses of 2012-13. There are some solid names on the list, including Barcelona's fresh new 50m+ signing, and they don't discriminate based on gender, either, with Nicoletta den Ridder is a solid ...
Ketchup and mustard kits aside (no corner taken on color richness), this little clip from Aruba has so much going for it. From the mere fact it's a goalkeeper goal, to the Marco Tardelli-esque celebration of unadultered joy and childlike innocent, to the complete meltdown at the end by the ...
