Doug’s September 2015 FIFA 2014 Check-In

Yep FIFA 16 comes out this month, but for now I’m sticking with FIFA 14, to see how far I can take it. There is a major caveat to that though. It looks like I’ll be taking a second job. These things can fall through (De Gea to Real Madrid, for example), but my expectation at this point is that I’ll be playing a...


Malmö FF UCL Group Stage Preview

Malmö will no doubt see the back of the UEFA Champions League at the end of the group stage. The real question is whether they can continue their European quest in the Europa League. In a word, “no”. Had this team been together at the start of the year, I likely would have said “maybe,” due to the tough group. The team is crazy-good...


Tenth Straight Home Shut-Out Sees Malmö Through Past Celtic

MFF made it to the group stage!   …OF THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! Just in case you weren’t aware of which tournament they were in, or somehow missed the title.   MFF (and everyone else) finds out their group tomorrow (Europa League draw is Friday), and I start a new job tonight, so unfortunately this won’t be the longest recap. I will however get a...


UCL Qualification: MFF v Celtic 2nd Leg Preview

One thing I neglected to mention in my opening preview, and purposely left out of my game recap is that Rosenberg was suspended for the first leg. I hope MFF is not over-confident about his return, but he is one of the remaining starters from last year’s run, and at 32, will bring some experience to the team to make sure they don’t throw...

Watch Our Post-game Comments on MUFC v LFC on September 12

I’m not exactly sure what’s going on in that photo. A bunch of MUFC stuff and a liver bird. That’s what this show is going to be like, though hopefully we know a little bit more about what is going on. Get Great Sports Deals


UCL Qualification: MFF v Celtic First Leg Recap

One thing I didn’t take into account in my preview article is how much bigger Celtic Park is than anything in which Malmö typically plays. The MFF players seemed shell-shocked. Last year the players played in Madrid and Torino, but as I mentioned in the preview, that team has been largely dismantled. While there is a little more overlap on the bench, there is...


UCL Qualification: MFF v Celtic

After Kevie left what is now known as the Free Culture Sports Show, I more-or-less stopped following Celtic (though with our recent move to football-only, I am going to start following again a bit). Even when Kevie was on the show, he was so disgusted by the treatment of Rangers that he didn’t want to talk about it. Behind schedule(?), Rangers are still in...
