Fulhamerica Has All But Ensured Its Relegation

Fulham is a disaster right now. No, this is not about the Michael Jackson statue in front of its stadium, but much worse.

The Cottagers spent more than $127 million in the transfer windows this season but sit 19th in the Premier League table and have given up 63 goals. To make things worse the club announced Thursday that it sacked its manager, Claudio Ranieri.

The Özil Bounce Is The Most Unique Shot In The Game

Mesut Özil scored his fourth goal of the Premier League season in Arsenal’s fairly simple 5-1 win over Bournemouth on Wednesday. 

Özil’s strike opened the scoring in the fourth minute, having been played in by Sead Kolasinac. The German had only the keeper to beat, and he did so with relative ease. But his shot was anything but usual.

Man City Agrees To Mega Deal With Puma To Provide Jerseys For The Next 10 Years

For the longest time, those that weren’t particularly enamored with the Abu Dhabi Royal Family Sky Blues steamrolling their way to three EPL titles in seven years had one piece of consolation: Since the club’s last First Division title hadn’t come since 1968 and since they’d spent so long in the shadow of neighbors Manchester United, City was viewed as a team without fans (at least when compared to United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea). 

Reviewing The Careers Of The Youngest Pro Athletes In American Sports

Earlier this week, 13-year-old Olivia Moultire made headlines when turning pro by signing an endorsement deal with Nike and a representation agreement with Wasserman Media Group. This is an unprecedented move in the women’s game — and really a rarity in all of sport given how young she is — but it’s certainly not without parallels on the men’s side. 

Chelsea Not Dead Yet After Kepa Row Thanks To Trippier's Shock Own Goal

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri elected to bench starting goalkeeper Kepa for Chelsea’s hosting of Tottenham.

The benching ended in favor of Sarri as the Spurs failed to get a shot on goal against veteran keeper Willy Caballero in a 2-0 victory on Wednesday. The Argentine was not tested in the net as the few shots Tottenham managed to get off were wide.

On the Blues’ side, Pedro played phenomenal after nutmegging Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris.

Shots Fired: Moussa Dembélé Slams Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City Move With Some Salty Tweets

It seems like not everyone is happy with Brendan Rodger's move to Leicester City.

The Northern Irishman and former Liverpool manager was announced as the Foxes' new manager on Tuesday after the sacking of Claude Puel. Rodgers spent the last two-and-a-half seasons as the manager of Scottish giant Celtic, leading the Goops to two Scottish Premier Leagues, two Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cup titles.

Which Country Has The Most Coaches At The Top Level?

When Claude Puel was fired by Leicester City over the weekend, there were no more French head coaches at a top-flight Big 5 league outside of France. It got us thinking, which country produces the best coaches by nationality? 

Is it Italy, with its highly tactical league? Or England, the inventors of the sport? How about Germany, with the largest population in Europe? Spain’s gotta be up there with the deepest league in Europe, right? Or maybe France, which just won the World Cup?

Newcastle’s Fabian Schar Proves That Center Backs Are Soccer People Too

Sometimes you have to wonder about the hype surrounding the English Premier League. You’re supposed to treat Manchester United-Liverpool like a druid at the summer solstice, but it turns out to be 90 minutes of apocalyptic despair.

You then put on Newcastle United-Burnley and see Atlanta United’s Miguel Almiron bossing things, $66 million Liverpool target James Tarkowski sky a sitter from yards out and commentators treat the introduction of a 38-year-old Peter Crouch like the second coming of Marco van Basten.

Celtic Boss Brendan Rodgers Is Heading To Leicester City

After unbelievable success in the Scottish Premiership, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is heading back to the Premier League to take over Leicester City.

 

Manchester United Would Be Foolish Not To Appoint Solskjaer As Permanent Manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer undoubtedly has made his mark at Manchester United. Even if the changes that were made to the side were small, the fruits of those changes are obvious. United haven't lost a single Premier League match since the Baby-faced Assassin took charge, the only blip on the radar being the PSG match.
