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

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.

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.

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

José Mourinho Comes Up With Novel Way To Criticize Poor Refereeing 

José Mourinho was pretty unhappy with referee Martin Atkinson in Chelsea's draw with relegation threatened Burnley, feeling that there were multiple uncalled penalties for Chelsea, and that Nemanja Matic was sent off unjustly.

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.
