MLS: Professional Soccer’s Retirement Home

By:

Today, Major League Soccer is well infused with better known players who played for most of their soccer careers in Europe before deciding to make the move to the USA. Many of these players, such as David Villa, Steven Gerrard, Andrea Pirlo and Frank Lampard, are definitely in the last stages of their careers as…

Living in Fear: Why FIFA Has Been Corrupt for Too Long

Last week, Swiss authorities opened criminal proceedings on FIFA President Sepp Blatter, charging him with misappropriation and criminal mismanagement. This is just the most recent instance of a FIFA official facing corruption-related charges. In 2011, two high-level FIFA bureaucrats were arrested for selling their votes in the World Cup voting process. In May 2015, fourteen…

Soccer Politics: Klinsmann, Controversy and Culture

Jurgen Klinsmann has been a controversial figure for U.S. Soccer ever since he was first appointed manager of the United States Men’s National Team in 2011. His background and credentials as both player and manager were impressive: he was very successful in his time playing professionally, and came to the USA after a similarly successful…

End of an Era for South Korean Football

“Time for Change.” That was the South Korean national football team’s motto before heading into the 2015 Asian Cup. Every major football tournament indirectly represents a new generation of footballers, or at least marks the absence of a few ex-internationals. I doubt anyone is expecting to see Mario Yepes or Frank Lampard at the 2018…

For many, the start of the New Year is an opportunity to turn the page, to start anew, a clean slate. This is especially true for the 25-year-old American striker Jozy Altidore. After a disastrous eighteen-month stint with Sunderland worth no more than three goals, Altidore has decided to move stateside and join USMNT teammate…

The 2010 South Africa World Cup featured excellent and dominant teams such as Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, and Uruguay… and teams like North Korea. The small Asian nation was in the World Cup for the first time since 1966 and, truthfully, was considered a bit of joke. At the same time there was a kind…

Halftime is extremely excited to get off of the European continent and review a team with a little more spice. Colombia’s footballing stock has risen over the past few years with the advent of players like Jackson Martinez, James Rodriguez, Fredy Guarín, and of course Monaco frontman Radamel Falcao. Colombia placed into a relatively even…

When it comes right down to it, the Croatians are a fun team to watch. Sadly, despite putting on good shows, they have performed less than admirably these past 12 months against national squads like Scotland, Switzerland, and Serbia (something about S countries gets ‘em). Despite faltering, the Mediterranean’s boast an impressive squad and will…
