The USWNT Killed It At The 2019 MTV VMAs

The post-World Cup USWNT lovefest continued at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards on Monday. Women’s World Cup winners Alex Morgan, Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger were invited to present one of the VMAs and weren’t a bit out of place among music’s biggest celebrities.

And you know they brought style and class to the whole operation.

Wolves Fans Give Patrick Cutrone World's Strangest Chant

Twenty-one-year-old Patrick Cutrone joined Wolverhampton this past summer from AC Milan. The Italian striker has appeared in five competitive matches for the EPL side for a total of 113 minutes, but Wolves fans already have a Patrick Cutrone chant picked out for him.

Seattle Sounders Fans Prank Portland Timbers After Rivalry Win

As part of MLS Rivalry Week, the Portland Timbers hosted the Seattle Sounders in not only an important match in terms of the playoff race, but the winner also took home the regional Cascadia Cup.

The Sounders put together one of their best performances of the season, winning 2-1. While the Timbers had bright moments, Seattle was dominant throughout the match. Jordan Morris, in particular, seemed unstoppable on the right wing, using Portland left back Zarek Valentin more as a training cone than an opposing player.

Man Utd (Momentarily) Twitter Trolls Chelsea, Blows Up In Their Face

Phil Neville’s Solution For Racism In England Is Laughable

Paul Pogba was targeted on Twitter by racist assholes after he missed a penalty kick for Manchester United on Monday, the third player to receive similar abuse in the past week in England. On Wednesday, it was Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham; on Sunday it was Reading’s Yakou Méïté. 

It’s disgusting and heartbreaking — it needs to stop.

But Phil Neville’s plan isn’t going to solve anything.

Eden Hazard Responds To Weight Criticism With His “Six Pack”

Real Madrid star Eden Hazard has responded to fan allegations of some minor weight gain this offseason with a video. The Belgian winger was getting a haircut with no shirt on (like a sociopath) and decided to film a quick short about his abs.

Hazard was sitting, so obviously we did not get the most flattering ab angle we could have received. 

Christian Pulisic Defends Teammate Tammy Abraham Amidst Racial Abuse

Kick It Out, an organization that advocates for players who experience racial abuse within the footballing world, has issued a call to action to social media companies in response to the Twitter abuse that Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has received over the past 24 hours.

Two Funny Videos From This Weekend In Soccer. Simple As That

Although the Premier League kicked off this weekend and demands our undivided attention, I think you’ll be pleased to see a couple things outside of Pep Guardiola spending $1 billion on assorted full backs. I give you two videos unashamedly taken from r/soccer.

If you don’t know, r/soccer is a sort of void that begins in the pit of your stomach before lodging at the back of your throat — it’s the ultimate representation of what it means to see fear in a handful of dust. It’s like Twitter in that respect.
