Thierry Henry Shows He's Still Got It With Ridiculous Fake-Shot Pass

Few things in sports are better than that collective "Ohhhhh" you hear from a soccer crowd when a player pulls off a stunning bit of skill like Thierry Henry's little move here.

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.

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.

Mario Balotelli Does Good Thing On Soccer Field

Once—and not even that long ago, if you'd believe—it was widely thought that Mario Balotelli was a good or great soccer player who, if nothing else, could be relied on to score some goals, sometimes. Then he was sold to Liverpool in August, and since, he's spent the last six months proving everyone wrong. UNTIL TODAY. » 2/10/15 5:12pm 2/10/15 5:12pm

Sad Liverpool's Champions League Exit Leaves Them Screwed Twice Over

It's still hard to judge just how hard we should come down on this Liverpool team when they inevitably find ways to muck up golden opportunities. On one hand, it's mind-boggling that Liverpool, the reigning Premier League runners-up, could fail to advance to the Round of 16 in an obscenely favorable Champions League… » 12/10/14 12:05pm 12/10/14 12:05pm

Luis Suárez, On Chronic Biting: At Least I Never Bit Anyone's Ear Off!

You have to give it to Luis Suárez for at least one thing: the guy is not afraid to be honest, even if it makes him sound like a crazy man defending his own sanity. Judging from some excerpts in Sport from his new autobiography, the book is nowhere near the typical athlete's mid-career hagiography. » 11/12/14 2:54pm 11/12/14 2:54pm
