Some have been a great success, some have been a disappointment, some we're still waiting to find out about. With the MLS growing rapidly and the amount of Americans being produced and sent to Europe increasing, it is an exciting time to be a fan of the United States national team.

Can You Name The Football Ground Quiz?

Player Remuneration & Fan Exploitation

Player Remuneration & Fan Exploitation

Gareth Bale’s £85 million move from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 saw him earn £300,000 per week on a six-year contract, doubling the yearly salary of UK Prime Minister David Cameron in just one week of work. With thousands of consumers struggling to cope with rising ticket prices, there is an imbalance between player remuneration and the cost of going to watch your team play.

Fit and Proper Ownership

Fit and Proper Ownership

After the antics of moustachioed Cardiff City super-villain Vincent Tan, it’s fair to say that the reputation of foreign owners in the Premier League has taken a hit in recent years.

Mid-Season Review of Pre-Season Premier League Predictions

Mid-Season Review of Pre-Season Premier League Predictions

I made a few predictions at the start of the season. Yes, yes, I know. Only a fool would make predictions. To be honest, I’d be quite happy to be considered a fool by some people but that’s another matter entirely. With the season progressing and moving towards the business end when the prizes are handed out, it would seem like a good idea to reflect upon my predictions and where I went wrong. Or right as the case may …
Football Fans and the Chip On Their Shoulder

Football Fans and the Chip On Their Shoulder

In wake of recent reports that West Ham are considering not extending Sam Allardyce’s contract beyond the summer, I began to think about the fickle nature of the football fan.
