Liverpool’s Winter Transfers Barely Worth an Article

“Oussama Assaidi 2011” by [2] – Flickr: [1]. Licensed under CC BY 2.0 via Wikimedia Commons. If you thought Manchester United’s winter transfer dealings were a snoozefest, wait until you see Liverpool’s. Assaidi out. Suso out. Ojo loaned out. That’s it. Assaidi does look like a nice piece of business at £4.7 million, especially since LFC bought him for £2.4 million. Suso had been...

Manchester United’s Winter Moves Good, Not Exciting

“Darren Fletcher vs Everton (cropped)” by Gordon Flood. Licensed under CC BY 2.0. It goes without saying that Manchester United’s winter moves were not exciting. Anderson and Fletcher departures, or Valdés’ arrival being the biggest news. That said, getting Anderson off the books is great, and if Fletcher isn’t going to return to his former level, then that’s a good move too. I go...

February 2015 FIFA 14 Check In

 “Arturo Vidal (Juventus)” by Football.ua. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0. It’s not been as long between posts this time, so there is not as much change. There are still some changes though. I lost so much money selling Vidal. I got him when I thought an 86 would be good enough…and when the market hadn’t diverged quite as much as it has. Things go...

USA Basketball as English League: Part 2 – NBA Premier Leauge

“NYC Montage 2014 4 – Jleon” by Jleon. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0. One thing I didn’t address in the first article in the series was whether I would pick who was in each league first and then match or match and then figure out the league. I decided to take a dual approach. The NBA goes first, then the D-League. After that, I...

Likely 2018 USMNT World Cup Squad (2015 Edition)

“Bobby Wood 1860 2011 2” by Ampfinger. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0. I decided with this go to get rid of my unknown spots, and just go for a full 30. Also, I realized that on my original article I went with a 21-man roster, not a 23-man roster. We even talked about it on the Free Culture Sports Show, and no one called...

One more week? Celebrations, either way.

“Rain-on-Thassos” by Edal Anton Lefterov. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons. It is not looking good for pickup this week. Rain last week kept us from playing, and Saturday it is likely to rain. Really, the fact that only 6 people showed up last week kept us from playing. We’ve played in rain plenty of times before. In fact, the rain is...

USA Basketball as English League: Part 1 – Who Gets In?

  “SCMap-doton-Greenville” by Seth Ilys. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons. Let me start by saying there is no way this is perfect. The oldest NBA team is the 76ers, who started in 1946. “The oldest football club with a well-documented, continuous history is the Dublin University Football Club, founded in 1854 at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.” It really makes no difference to...
