The End Of The Brazilian Dream

“I certainly didn’t envisage or want to write the following angry, sad and blunt blog post. I’m not entirely sure that everything has sunk in yet to be quite honest.” As a Scot, it always makes sense to pick a go to team when it comes to World Cups, especially in this era when Scotland […]

Brazil Deserved Win… Now Lets Get On With It

I know its always great to see nice and attractive football but sometimes football doesn’t always give us that. Sometimes to win, you have to get down and dirty. People were up in arms that Brazil won last night. They caused too many fouls, they singled out James Rodriguez for some of harsh treatment and […]

Colombia Need To Hold Nerve To Punish Brazil

Colombia have been superb so far at this World Cup. Next up it’s Brazil. Can the feisty, entertaining Colombians knock-out the hosts or will ‘A Seleção’ once again prevail and move closer to the holy grail? Obviously we only have hours to wait before kick-off at Estadio Castelao. But if ‘Los Cafeteros‘ stand any chance of going […]

James Rodriguez: A Galactico In The Making But Wont Leave Monaco This Summer

Everyone’s heard of Colombia’s James Rodriguez now! He’s been the player of the World Cup so far and he’s a joy to watch. But before fans start dreaming of signing the twenty-two year old genius, they need to know it will cost a huge amount to even get close to signing him. Most clubs missed […]

Sloppy Brazil Need To Wake Up Or Risk Losing The Dream

  So hosts Brazil have managed to squeeze past neighbours Chile and reach the quarter-final stage of this years World Cup. But ‘A Seleção’ need to buck up their ideas or risk falling before the final at the Maracanã! Not for the first time in this tournament Brazil were shoddy and looked average at times. The […]

The Team Of The Group Stages

    So it seems to be on trend for various footballing websites to give out their teams of the group stages. So why should I be any different, so here is my team. As you can see the side is in a 4-2-3-1 formation. I’ve no room for Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, […]

Argentina Should Drop Higuain Or Aguero In Favour Of Lavezzi

It may have surprised most of us but Argentina have looked quite toothless up-front at this years World Cup. Apart from Lionel Messi, obviously, who has saved his nation in their first two fixtures. Both Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain have struggled to make much of an impact so far in Brazil. So with qualification […]

Silly Suarez!

Last week I hailed Luis Suarez‘s passion and in particular his performance against England. He was fantastic. But if we saw the best of the Uruguayan against England, then against Italy we saw the very worst of the forward. He has once again tried to take a chunk out of a fellow professional by biting […]

Inept Defending Puts England on a Backward Path

When Roy Hodgson named the England squad for the World Cup 2014, few eyebrows were raised since it was a largely young group of players with very few experienced internationals in it. Yet, it was also the source of optimism for the national team, which has failed to look beyond the Golden generation until now. […]

World Cup Stars Liverpool Should Be Looking At

Now I know what they all say ‘Don’t buy players on the back of a World Cup’. But let’s face it, I can’t write a blog about that, can I? Plus Liverpool along with many other European sides are in need of reinforcements, especially as they’re in the Champions League next season. So I’m going […]
