Previously, a post-World Cup summer was a quiet one, but the footballing plates have re-aligned this year. The Copa America calendar change, the Africa Cup of Nations switch from winter to summer and the increasing profile of the Women’s World Cup gives us plenty to concentrate on. Then there’s the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Euro Under-21s, World Cup Under-20s and the European Nations League finals. But while we prepare for all of that, the next few weeks are likely to be dominated by the European club finals –…

“I’m so glad that I’m still around to see this” Former Tottenham Hotspur player and manager Glenn Hoddle, who suffered a heart attack in October, reflects on Spurs’ comeback in Amsterdam Two European nights, two incredible comebacks. Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will contest the first all-English Champions League Final since Manchester United and Chelsea in 2008 after two of the most remarkable games. Few had given Liverpool any hope of making the Final after a comprehensive away-leg loss to Barcelona.

“Both Liverpool and us deserve the title. The team that loses should not have regret”Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola This season’s second best is no failure The passion for victory, the obsession with glory and the intensity of his work are plain for all to witness watching Pep Guardiola on the touchline as he falls to his hands and knees with despair at a bad miss, hiding his eyes when a penalty is taken, overcome with bewildered fury at some routine mistake. But while he can moan with the best of them when severe injustice afflicts his players, he also sees the bigger picture – and there was something he said towards the end of the titanic title battle for this year’s Premier League crown between Manchester City and Liverpool that should resonate with…

The evening of May 18, 1960, was the turning point when the club game declared war on national teams Agnelli lays down the gauntlet to UEFA – again Ever since the first edition of World Soccer in October 1960, the dream, or nightmare, of a European Super League has drifted through the waking consciousness of the modern game.

In a letter to the ECA’s 232 members, the Italian has called a June meeting to brainstorm ideas that include replacing the Champions League’s eight four-team groups with…
