Remember When El Clásico Was 'Taking A Back Seat'? That Didn't Last Long

Less than five months ago, Barcelona's season reached a devastating low after defeat to Real Madrid at the Camp Nou was followed by an embarrassing loss to Rayo Vallecano in Madrid. Ronald Koeman was sacked and the idea of Blaugrana supporters actually looking forward to El Clasico 2022 time seemed entirely preposterous. 

Marsch Madness: Leeds Fans Fully Behind American Manager After Wild Comeback Win

It was one of the longest halves in Jesse Marsch’s career, both literally and figuratively. The new Leeds United coach had to replace three of his starters with first-half injuries and in the 11th minute of added time Wolverhampton scored a second goal that seemingly consigned the American to a third defeat in four matches since taking the job. 

Fan Who Tied Himself To Everton’s Goalpost During Game Releases Video Explaining Why He Did It

Thursday’s game between Everton and Newcastle had a unique disruption when a fan ran onto the field. Pitch invaders aren’t a strange occurrence, but you don’t see invaders tie themselves to the goal post around their neck too often. So, why did the fan tie himself to the goalpost?

El primer traspié en la cuenta del Lobo fue su falta de finiquito. Si bien acumula seis tantos durante esta campaña, hay consenso de que el jugador no está fino y un intento de tijera a los 13' refleja un poco el nivel de puntería del goleador por estos días.

Sergiño Dest’s Injury Couldn’t Have Come At A Worse Time

Russia’s Hopes Of Competing In 2022 World Cup Effectively Ended By CAS Ruling
