Craig Gardner Delivers From 30 Yards Out To Put West Brom Up 2-0

Crystal Palace’s four-match win streak looks to be coming to an end as they’re down 2-0 at home to West Bromwich Albion—and that second goal is a real screamer off the boot of Craig Gardner, whose 30-yard strike made it past Julian Speroni and likely would have beaten any keeper in the league. » 4/18/15 11:20am Saturday 11:20am

Manchester Derby Is Already 1-1 And Manic

The Manchester Derby lit up early for the visiting side as Sergio Agüero deposited a dish from David Silva past David de Gea to give City a 1-0 lead. The entire play set up is nice-looking soccer (Milner’s pretty awesome here), but you have to ask what Manchester United’s defenders were doing here? » 4/12/15 11:19am 4/12/15 11:19am

God Save Queens Park Rangers, The Most Fun Bad Team In The EPL

QPR aren't very good. In fact, they're quite terrible. They have the Premier League's second-worst points-per-game rate, have given up by far the most goals, and look generally incompetent performing many of the duties usually required of an EPL-quality club. But goddammit if they aren't the most entertaining side… » 4/08/15 2:33pm 4/08/15 2:33pm

Eden Hazard Is Showing England What A Great Player Can Look Like

Much of what fuels England’s rabid, explosively celebratory, often masochistic, sometimes even violent devotion to soccer is the country’s unique interpretation of the game. Their love of direct attacks, sliding-karate-kick tackles, and ceaseless running almost compels teams into wide-open matches with acres of space… » 4/07/15 10:20am 4/07/15 10:20am

Wayne Rooney Perfection Gives Man United The Advantage They Need

Don’t look now—and Aston Villa may still find the equalizer, having scored just a minute after this—but Wayne Rooney is up to his usual tricks, with a physics-defying touch followed by a half-volley on the rise, between two defenders. The full video, with perfect commentary, is below: » 4/04/15 11:43am 4/04/15 11:43am

Here Are Some EPL Hooligans Brawling, Because That's What They Do Best

"OY, AN' WOT 'ID I 'EAR YOU SAY ABOUT ME MUM?!" one West Ham fan presumably asked the Sunderland fan across from him. Squaring up, the Sunderland hooligan probably said, "YOU 'EARD ME, MATE. ME AN' ME LADS GAVE OL' MUMSIE A GOOD BOFFIN', BUT YOU'RE GONNA LOOK EVEN WORSE THAN THAT OL' HAG WHEN WE'AH DONE WIF YOU!" » 3/23/15 2:06pm 3/23/15 2:06pm

Here's Steven Gerrard's Final Liverpool-Man United Match In Its Entirety

Steven Gerrard made sure his final match in the Liverpool-Manchester United rivalry was a memorable one, but not in the way he'd have hoped. After coming on as a sub at halftime, he received the ball six times, played five passes, made one crunching tackle that could've gotten him a yellow, and ultimately was justly… » 3/22/15 12:12pm 3/22/15 12:12pm

Exquisite Juan Mata Scissor Kick Put Man United 2-0 Up On Liverpool

In what was a fairly insane second half of today's huge Liverpool-Manchester United match, there was at least one moment of brilliance to break up the surrounding nuttiness. That was the criminally underused Juan Mata scoring his second goal of the game in acrobatic fashion. » 3/22/15 11:25am 3/22/15 11:25am

Why Would Gareth Bale Want To Go Back To England?

There's a battle for Gareth Bale's soul being waged in the media of two different countries. On one side, you have the Spanish press expressing the frustrations of their readers by bashing the player's lazy, timid displays on the pitch. On the other, the press in Bale's native Britain is using its pages to decry his… » 3/17/15 4:18pm 3/17/15 4:18pm

José Mourinho Gets Philosophical In Rant Directed At Haters In The Media

"The world is a bit strange. Maybe because of diets, and maybe because of the quality of produce we are eating, I think memories are getting shorter," José Mourinho begins his wild, metaphysical ride that somehow ends with him basically calling certain members of the media jealous cowards. » 3/13/15 11:04am 3/13/15 11:04am

This Louis Van Gaal-Sam Allardyce Long Ball Beef Is Really Stupid

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal shrugs off most criticisms with a sneer and a reminder of his groaning trophy shelf. "What can you possibly tell me," his look says, "Louis the Great?" But don't, for the love of God, impugn his tactics. For that offense, he will pull out all the stops to prove you wrong. » 2/10/15 11:43am 2/10/15 11:43am

How Harry Kane Owned The Best Weekend Of The Premier League Season

You want to know why the Premier League is the best league in the world? It's for weekends like this past one, which feature a handful of headliner games, a couple more you didn't think would be that competitive but end up going down to the wire, and even when the title race is all but decided already, there's still… » 2/09/15 4:05pm 2/09/15 4:05pm

Man City Saves Draw With 92nd-Minute Free Kick Goal

James Milner helped Manchester City avoid an embarrassing home loss to lowly Hull City with this gorgeous stoppage-time free kick goal. To be fair, even a draw is shocking; Etihad Stadium spent most of the match silent as supporters watched their team fart around and be dominated by the bottom-three side. » 2/07/15 11:56am 2/07/15 11:56am
