Frank Lampard Scored A Fittingly Huge Goal Against Old Team Chelsea

The pillars of the old crew were all there. John Terry still in the captain's armband. A ponytailed Didier Drogba in his famous number 11.

The 2013-14 Premier League Season Was Well And Truly Fucking Awesome

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. There was pessimism, hope, and ultimately failure. There was schadenfreude; oh, was there schadenfreude. There were also huge games, mesmerizing goals, and more twists in the title race than a M. Night Shyamalan movie (but actually good). To cap off an especially… » 5/13/14 3:23pm 5/13/14 3:23pm

Whenever you have, coming into today's games, six teams within six points of the league leaders, nearly every week will bring a matchup that seems like the Game of the Season.

Man United Fan Marries Into City Family, Trolls Them With Great Toast

This groom is giving what appears to be (and actually might be, in the end) a very heartfelt toast about an important person in his life that is "no longer with us." When he asks his new family—who are apparently all Manchester City supporters—to stand and toast this influential person, he pulls the rug right out… » 9/23/13 8:35pm 9/23/13 8:35pm

No One Has Any Idea What Is Going On In The Premier League

European leagues were on hiatus during the international break for World Cup qualifiers, and so today was the first chance we all got to see the new Premier League since the close of the record-breaking transfer window that saw an ungodly amount of money and men move in, out, and around England.

Your Team Is Probably Going To Fail: The 2013-14 Premier League

Fuck yeah, man. The Premier League's back tomorrow.
