Euro 2020 — or is it Euro 2021? — finally kicks off next weekend, and it’s set to be a cracker. 24 countries, playing across 11 host cities in 51 matches, will compete for the ultimate prize - to be the champions of Europe. This year’s tournament is one of the more complicated. The first to be played across the whole continent, with reduced crowds …
 
Since the introduction of VAR, teams have been left to lament what might have been if their striker's foot was one size smaller; if the ball had been played half a second sooner. Goals have been allowed and disallowed, sometimes seemingly at random, with referees in booths drawing lines on a screen, often taking minutes to come up with a decision. …
 
Is there anything more fun in football than witnessing a goalkeeper score? Every time the No 1 is seen sprinting upfield for a late corner or free-kick, fans and neutrals alike inch closer to the edge of their seats, silently praying the unthinkable happens. And last weekend, it did happen. With West Brom and Liverpool drawing 1-1, Trent Alexander-…
 
Inter v AC Milan. Celtic v Rangers. Tottenham v Arsenal. Boca v River. City v United. There's nothing quite like a football derby. It is more than just a football match. It is a day when the city comes to a stop. When colleagues become enemies. When families split. The fans hate each other, and violence can sometimes happen. Derbies are about more …
 
Jose Mourinho has been appointed Roma manager from the start of next season. The 58-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the three-time Serie A champions.

The J.League is often rated as the best league in Asia and has produced Japanese superstars like Shinji Kagawa, Shinji Okazaki, Keisuke Honda, and many more. It is renowned for its high-quality play, technically gifted players, and, as with anything Japanese, the quirky side is also picked up on a lot. In recent years, J.League support has grown, e…
 
The term ‘New Manager Bounce’ has become part of football vocabulary over the past few years. Given the new TV deal and the number of opportunities to make money by staying in the Premier League, there is ever-increasing pressure on managers to deliver results fast. A few wins on the trot could be the difference between survival and relegation. Clu…
 
The lights at the Allianz Stadium cut out, and the music swelled. The center circle started to pulse and ripple. And then the grass itself appeared to get pulled away, as if it were nothing more than a tablecloth. Three words ran around the electronic advertising boards: “History. Passion. Lols.” The extravagant buildup did not seem to match the oc…
 
Nine different players got on the scoresheet as Japan thrashed Mongolia 14-0 in a World Cup 2022 qualifier. Mongolia, who are ranked No. 190 in the world, registered just two shots compared to Japan's 34. It is Japan's second-biggest win, only behind a 15-0 win over the Philippines in 1967. Having gone into the halftime break five goals to the good…
 
The dressing room is football's inner sanctum, a place which can be defined by great togetherness or deep division, where games can be won or lost before a ball is even kicked. What goes on between players and managers behind closed doors is often speculated on. There are endless rumours of fights, arguments and practical jokes, but the reality is …
 
With great responsibility comes doubt. When the happiness of thousands of fans depends on what you and your teammates do on the pitch, it is no wonder that footballers quickly abandon trusty old devices such as logic and embrace a weird world of mumbo jumbo. Superstition plays a big part in the lives of many footballers. Some have lucky pairs of un…
 
Every year, anywhere between June and September, and again in January, the football world turns into a frenzy.

Football is a universal language. Or is it? There is undoubtedly a common understanding between players as soon as they cross the white line onto the pitch; often you don’t need words to be able to play well as a team. But it does help. With the professional game never more eclectic than it is now, where, for example, over 60% of players playing in…

Shimizu S Pulse announced their new slogan for season 2021 and the reaction on social media has been fierce to say the least.

"Like a human sling," said David Moyes. "The best Scud missile I have ever seen," added Sam Allardyce, a heavy hint of jealousy in his voice. For Luiz Felipe Scolari, it was more difficult to describe. "I have never seen anything like this in my life," said the newly-arrived Chelsea boss. Scolari was not the only one left dumbfounded by Rory Delap'…

However, gambling related-harm has made the lives of two …
 
サッカー界での育成年代での最大の格差の1つに、早生まれ問題があります。これは、学年の早い時期に生まれた子供たちは、身体的に成熟しているため、同学年の遅い生まれた子供よりも、体が大きく、足が速く、フィジカル的に有利に立つ場面が多くなる可能性があると研究されてきました。 イングランドのサリー州で行われた研究では、8,000人のプレーヤーをユースリーグで調査したところ、各学年ごとの上位リーグにいるチームほど、選手たちの誕生日が早く、下位リーグにいくほど誕生日が遅いという結果ができました。また、また同研究ではトップレベルのアカデミーのプレーヤーの45%が9月から11月の間に生まれたプレーヤーであることを発見しました。 One of the biggest disparities in footbal…
