  1. EPL Table for The Last 5 Matches


    April 20, 2012 by Rami El Chamaa

    A big thanks to Bearasaurus for this piece.

    Interesting points:

    Newcastle making a strong run at Champions/Europa League Spots.

    Liverpool running away from European competitions. A full 15 pts would have had them in 5th or 6th, level with Chelsea on points. Luckily they won’t be needing a placement spot with their League cup win.

    Wigan climbing 5 pts clear of the relegation zone.

    Blackburn diving from 16th to solidly within the relegation zone.

  3. What does Damien Comolli’s departure mean for Liverpool?


    April 18, 2012 by David Bolt

    In their first few months of owning Liverpool, FSG made a number of major changes. Firstly, there was the appointment of Damien Comolli to the newly-created post of Director of Football. Then there was the decision to replace Roy Hodgson as manager with Kenny Dalglish. Since then, FSG have been pretty low-profile for the past year or so. That changed this past week, when they came over and made some changes as a consequence of what has been,. Despite one cup win and the possibility of another, a dismal season for Liverpool. The biggest change that was made was the dismissal of Damien Comolli. John Henry and Tom Werner then went back to Boston to attend the Red Sox’s home opener, but are due to return to Liverpool this week, leaving fans wondering if there are more changes to come., and if so, what those changes could be.

  4. Newcastle’s Genuine Top 4 Assault


    April 18, 2012 by Adam Gray

    It is certainly fitting of Newcastle’s unexpectedly successful season that, on the night of the 12th March, after a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates, they trailed the 4th placed Gunners by eight points. It looked like the wheels had come off the North East bandwagon and they would slip into the mid-table mediocrity that had been predicted after a summer of unrest at the newly named Sports Direct Arena. However, under the stewardship of manager Alan Pardew, what has followed has been remarkable: five straight wins means they close the gap on a now third-place Arsenal to three points, and have moved level on points with Tottenham Hotspur who occupy the last of the four Champions League spots.

  5. A Unique Rivalry: Coming Soon To A Theatre Near You


    April 17, 2012 by Mike Platania

    Often times, it’s easy to tell who’s fighting for good and who’s fighting for evil. It doesn’t take a genius to realize Obi-Wan is a force for good, and that Vader is evil. Show me someone who thinks that Voldemort is the protagonist and Harry is the antagonist and I’ll show you a liar.

    But this isn’t the case in sports. Every team has fans; how could one be viewed as evil if they have good-willed supporters? Instead of the good versus evil story, we love to obsess over the tales of the underdog versus the favorite.

  6. Pay Piermario Morosini Respect That Really Means Something


    April 16, 2012 by Jeremy Lim | Italian Football Editor

    The unfortunate passing of Piermario Morosini during the Serie B match between Pescara and Livorno on the 14th of April 2012 marked one of the saddest deaths in the world of sports. Only 25 years of age, Morosini collapsed on the pitch and was rushed to a local hospital, only to eventually be pronounced dead.

    Many went as far as to say it was destiny that called the young man home, with doctors stating not even a defibrillator could have saved him from either the cardiac arrests or aneurysm that are claimed to have taken his life. Morosini’s colleagues lent their voice in chorus to praise the memory of the late player, who had lost both his parents and younger brother to tragic circumstances, yet ‘just wanted a little happiness’ and never let his troubled past prevent him from having ‘a smile on his face’.
