Chelsea Fans Bombard David Luiz's Restaurant With Negative Reviews After Move To Arsenal

Arsenal has had a much more eventful transfer window than fans anticipated. Initially given a transfer budget of just $54 million, it seemed as though the Gunners would continue their tradition of promising fans a lot but offering them very little in terms of actual signings.

Outrageous Kyle Walker Goal-Line Clearance Allows City To Defeat Liverpool On Penalties

As Arsenal and Manchester United’s recent dominance of the FA Community Shield shows (the two clubs had combined to win the event on five of the past six occasions prior to today’s match), England’s annual curtain-raiser is a sign of very little to come in the season ahead.

From Weak Link To Best Ever: The USWNT’s Defense Was The Surprise Package Of The Tournament

Heading into the 2019 Women’s World Cup, the consensus was that the USWNT would ship its fair share of goals but overcome that deficiency by winning matches in barnstorming fashion — maybe a 4-2 here, a 5-3 there.
