Chelsea 1      Atlético Madrid 3   “The more one suffers, the more, I believe, one has a sense for the comic”   After Chelsea parked two buses in the back of Liverpool’s net this past weekend, Jose Mourinho came in for a bit of criticism regarding his defensive football philosophy that toppled Liverpool…

Sunderland 0     Norwich City 0 Arsenal 0      Chelsea 0   The word zero will not appear in this little column, except for once. And since I would hate to be accused of re-writing one of my previous columns as Rick Reilly has been accused doing (allegedly) with his old SI columns over at…

Newcastle United 2      Chelsea 0   I’ve said many times that the Gundam always wins. Same for the Valvraves and the Variable Fighters of Macross. What I mean by that is that they always win in the end. Sometimes they have to retreat and fight another day. But on the way to ultimate victory, they…

El Clásico Part 1: Girls In Pajamas

Boston 4      St. Louis 5   I didn’t know what Boston 3rd baseman Will Middlebrooks was thinking at the time, lifting his legs as Allen Craig stumbled home. It looked very much like he was intentionally trying to trip him. Craig had got on base with a double to left field that drove…

Ponies Are Forever!!

Tootenham 1      Chelsea 1   All week long the broadsheets and the airwaves were sparkling with the news of the great breakup of the Jose Mourinho/AVB bromance. Friendship, evidently is not forever.

Sunderland FC has a new manager   Like many people, I wonder what was going through Ellis Short’s mind when he hired Paulo Di Canio as the new head coach at Sunderland to replace recently deposed Martin O’Neill. How well was Di Canio vetted for the position? Did no one point out to Ellis Short…

Everton  2      Manchester City 0   The title race is pretty much all over with.

Steaua București 1     Chelsea 0   When Romania banned horses and carts from roads and city streets, it set into motion a horsemeat scandal that has rocked Europe and at a glancing distance, has horrified even America as well.

Chelsea 1      West Brom 0   Saturday’s win was a win. Not as close as the scoreboard would indicate, but honestly, we have no fault but own own that it was only 1-0. Sure, Ben Foster was genius, but we made him so. Onward. Brian Reade of THE MIRROR is quite right when…
