Chile Is Obsessed With Alexis Sánchez's Sex Life

New Arsenal star Alexis Sánchez has come into the Premier League and torn shit up. Naturally, his native Chile has been very interested in their local hero's exploits.

Manchester United Are Back Where They Belong, But Can It Last?

Well, they've done it. They've survived the year from hell, with a hopelessly overmatched manager, a rumored but never unveiled treasure chest meant to revitalize a squad whose actual age was catching up to their prematurely graying and receding hairlines, a humiliating season of unending self-inflicted calamities,… » 12/09/14 11:38am 12/09/14 11:38am

Sunderland Defender's Exquisite Volley Makes For Wonderful Own Goal

Above, Sunderland's Santiago Vergini shows off some impressive technical ability as he takes a bouncing ball and cracks it past the keeper. It would've been worthy of his personal highlight reel, if it hadn't been aimed at his own net. But for an own goal, this was a beaut. » 10/18/14 11:19am 10/18/14 11:19am

David Moyes, On What We All Saw Coming: "I Really Didn't See It Coming"

Former Manchester United manager, laughingstock, and amateur golfer David Moyes has stayed pretty quiet since getting canned before last season's end. (Publically, at least. Don't come at him sideways at a wine bar.) Today, he spoke to the Guardian, expressing a frankly unbelievable level of naiveté about his sacking. » 10/17/14 3:40pm 10/17/14 3:40pm

The Most Important Passers On Every Premier League Team

Coming into this weekend, Yaya Toure, Manchester City's all-everything central midfielder, leads the EPL in passes per 90 min with 92.8. That is a lot. It would be logical and intuitive to conclude that Toure is the most influential passer in the EPL. But that distinction actually belongs to West Ham's Mark Noble,… » 10/04/14 11:28am 10/04/14 11:28am

Looks Like The Manchester United Traveling Circus Might Really Happen

During the latter stages of last season, there were rumors that United might partake in a tour of the Middle East and Asia during the missing midweek Champions League fixtures that otherwise would've filled the schedule and coffers. It was funny enough to mention in passing, but too outlandish to be taken seriously.… » 9/30/14 11:29am 9/30/14 11:29am

What Are The Most Successful Formations In The Premier League?

Soccer formations are hard to pin down. They come in and out of fashion almost seasonally; their success will largely rest on which top teams adopt or abandon them; and there are an infinite number of permutations of each. All that said, why not poke our heads in on a broad survey of how various formations have… » 9/24/14 12:19pm 9/24/14 12:19pm
