the day the football stopped

If there’s one thing we’ve grown accustomed to in modern football, it’s that it never really stops. The Champions League final, the traditional curtain drop for the club football season, typically takes place on the first Saturday in June and qualifying for the next season begins barely a month later. Over the summer fans can typically enjoy the World Cup, the European Championship or the Copa America and if those aren’t on the world’s biggest club sides will be playing glamour friendlies across the globe. On almost any day, at any time of the year, you can bet that someone, somewhere, is playing profes-sional football. Then, in the space of just a few days, everything stopped. The crucial date was March 13. It seems almost impossible to believe now that Rangers took…

champions return

Ordinarily, both the Europa League and Champions League would have wrapped up in late May and early June but, of course, 2020 has not been an ordinary year. COVID-19 postponed the tournaments for three months, and meant an overhaul was needed to get the competitions completed. UEFA announced that the quarter-final matches of both tournaments would become single-legged affairs, played in neutral venues. Accordingly, the Champions League ties are scheduled to be staged in Lisbon, between August 12 and 23. However, before the final eight can get underway there is the matter of four Round of 16 second legs to take care of first. Manchester City will take a 2-1 lead over Real Madrid back to the Etihad Stadium, while Chelsea travel to Bayern Munich trailing by three goals. Napoli go…

champions again

LIVERPOOL ARE NOW CHAMPIONS OF ENGLAND, OF EUROPE, AND OF THE WORLD When Jürgen Klopp’s side lifted the Club World Cup in December, they claimed an intercontinental crown for the first time in the club’s illustrious history and supporters were able to declare their team champions of the world. They were already the most successful English side in the European Cup, now known as the Champions League, and lifted the trophy for a sixth time just over a year ago. But they had not won a league title in 30 years, and having been ‘knocked off their perch’ by Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United, they were downgraded to the second most successful team in terms of English championships with 18 to United’s 20. That went some way to being remedied when the Premier League…

boy wonder or superman?

RASHFORD SCORED TWICE IN FRONT OF THE STRETFORD END AS HE ENJOYED A DREAM DEBUT These are different times not only in football, but across the whole world of sport. Gone are the days when superstars such as Michael Jordan were afraid of speaking out about issues regarding race, politics, poverty or society in general. Now we have brave, articulate 22-year-olds leading real, tangible change at governmental level. Now we have young men like Marcus Rashford, unafraid of speaking out to help others, no longer fearful of the damage doing so may inflict on their careers. With all he’s done over the last few months alone, since the coronavirus outbreak ground most of the planet to a halt, it’s easy to forget what a young career Rashford’s is. It was little more…

the wonderful game

UNTIL NOW WE HAD ALL ASSUMED HAWK-EYE TO BE VIRTUALLY FOOL-PROOF. DID YOU KNOW? Manchester United have reached the FA Cup semi-final 30 times. That’s more than any other club in the competition’s history. THE GOOD After three months away, during such a worrying time as COVID-19 spread across the world, it was simply wonderful to see football return in England, even in the unfamiliar guise of games being played behind closed doors and with the introduction of temporary new rules such as drinks breaks and an increased allowance of substitutes per side. However, another massively important global issue was addressed during the opening rounds of matches, as the Premier League took an exemplary and united stand in support of the Black Lives Matter movement following the tragic death of George Floyd in the United…

race for the scudetto

Juventus confirmed their place at the top of Serie A with a 2-0 win against Scudetto rivals Inter ahead of the interruption due to the coronavirus pandemic, but with the obvious challengers at an arm’s length, the true contender has emerged as Lazio push the Old Lady all the way. You can’t rule out Inter, but the Bianconeri confirmed their long-established dominance in Serie A, lasting since current Nerazzurri coach Antonio Conte brought them back to the top in 2011-12. Current Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri was the one who came closest to upsetting the hierarchy in recent years, as his Napoli side nearly beat Juve to the trophy in 2017-18. He’s now at the other side of the pond and the demanding atmosphere around Allianz Stadium takes some getting used to,…
