Zlatan Books Entire Town Square So Fans Can Watch Him Beat Down On His Old Team

Soccer has taken Zlatan Ibrahimović (or is it the other way around?) all around the world. From Paris to Barcelona to Turin to Milan and beyond, Zlatan came, saw, and conquered many of Europe’s greatest cities. Now he’s back where it all started, and he’s making sure the whole city gets a view of The Return. »9/18/15 2:47pm9/18/15 2:47pm

Barcelona Face A Challenge They Can’t Buy Their Way Out Of

Barcelona’s dominant victory over Atlético Madrid this weekend felt like a statement. It’d be crazy to claim that the reigning Spanish and European champions, armed with nearly the exact same squad that mowed down all comers in last season’s historically great campaign, were underestimated or overlooked in any… »9/17/15 4:51pm9/17/15 4:51pm

God Smites The Manchesters Because England Sucks

England, man. Their clubs spend all that money on some of the best players in the world, get all that media hype about being the best league in the world, and right as you start to buy into it all they meet a couple underdogs from Europe and prove yet again that England isn’t as good as it’s made out to be.

Man Utd's Luke Shaw Suffers Gruesome, Leg-Breaking Tackle [WARNING: GRAPHIC]

Manchester United full back Luke Shaw had to be carted off the pitch in the first half of their Champions League match against PSV, on a count of a busted leg thanks to the tackle you can see below. Here’s a GIF of Shaw’s flopping leg, which, you’ve been warned, is pretty gnarly:

Manchester City Are Soaring In England; Now They Must Fly As High In Europe

Manchester City appear to be on the precipice of something great. Years of unstinting investment by their rich owners has already paid off domestically in the form of two Premier League titles in four seasons, plus what in all likelihood will be a third come the end of the current campaign. But any ambitious club’s… »9/15/15 1:28pm9/15/15 1:28pm

Here Are The Top 10 Goals From The Champions League This Season

The order of this list—which you’ll have to click through to view on Youtube because UEFA is a dick—is more than a little questionable (Messi turning Boateng into a 6’ 4” domino isn’t number one?), and how Andrés Iniesta’s length-of-the-pitch jaunt didn’t even make the list almost invalidates the whole thing. These… »6/09/15 6:48pm6/09/15 6:48pm

Barcelona's Perfect Season May Have Been Their Hardest

As we said after Barcelona took the (severely hobbled, it must be said) champions of Germany and ground them up into a fine powder to be mixed in with the mate the club’s South American contingent is always going on about, this team deserved to end the season surrounded by every trophy available. The football gods… »6/08/15 3:46pm6/08/15 3:46pm

Barcelona Carve Up Juventus, Score First Goal Of Champions League Final

All that talk about Barcelona’s terrifying front three and it’s actually midfielders Andrés Iniesta and Ivan Rakitić who combine to score the opening goal of this Champions League final just four minutes in. (Though to be fair, Messi and Neymar made the two key passes to open everything up.)

Cristiano Ronaldo And His Teammates Were Really, Really Sad About Losing

We all know how great Cristiano Ronaldo and his Real Madrid teammates are. But acknowledging that doesn’t preclude us from cackling maniacally when they lose, and especially at the distraught looks on their faces when it happens, like today against Juventus. So here are a bunch of pictures of just that! »5/13/15 6:41pm5/13/15 6:41pm
