Kevin De Bruyne For PFA Player Of The Year

Those shouting at your screen after reading the title because we are only four games into the season, because you don't like Kevin De Bruyne or for a number of other reasons, I get it. Believe me, I do, I’ve been there. Just hear me out.

2019 Ballon d’Or: Could One Of These Players Shock The World And Take It?

The 2019 Ballon d’Or will be presented in December, and the three front runners will all be confident of their chances at lifting the famous award. For both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, it could just be one of their final chances. They're each aiming for a sixth win.

Reports Of MLS SuperDraft Death Might Be Greatly Exaggerated

From a USMNT perspective, a look at the MLS goalscoring charts isn’t a heartening experience. With 13 goals in 27 games — four of them coming in one match against a lifeless Chicago Fire — 36-year-old Chris Wondolowski is the top goalscoring American.

Manchester United was held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Southampton at St. Mary's on Saturday. It was a match that was crucial for United to get back in the race for a top four spot.

It seemed to be that same old story for United — what little preseason optimism left is now gone. What’s worse is that Manchester United has only won three Premier League games in its past 16.

Forgotten Promising MLS Youth Scores Late Winner For Tijuana

It's been a while since MLS fans have heard the name Erick "Cubo" Torres. Once the lone bright spot for failing Chivas USA, a 20-year-old Cubo Torres scored 22 goals in 44 appearances for the now-defunct club. He was hailed as one of the young guns that was going to make a huge impact in MLS and eventually with the Mexico national team.

Mohamed Salah Doesn’t Like “Too Fair” VAR, Can Also Run On Water

Back on June 1 in Madrid, Liverpool was the beneficiary of eagle-eyed referee Damir Skomina’s decision to punish Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko for a controversial handball in the first minute of the 2019 Champions League Final. It was Mohamed Salah who stepped up to the spot to give Liverpool a lead it would never relinquish, so you could probably be led to assume that Salah is in favor of meticulous, hairsplitting decisions — the kind that VAR is all about.

You’d be wrong.

10 Rowdy Lads That Are Mixing It Up In The USL
