March 2015 FIFA 14 Check In

“Rafael van der Vaart 2014” by Kathi Rudminat. Licensed under CC BY 2.0. This may be my last FIFA 14 article. What is the point of building a better squad if you aren’t able to move up the divisions? I’m currently in division 3 of against the computer and division 9 against humans. I held in division 3 my first go. I think I...

The Death of Spain:  By Chilean Hands 0

The Death of Spain: By Chilean Hands

                Pre-Game: I’m interested to see what Spain’s changes will be and to see if they will affect their play. I have Chile winning this game, which will knock Spain out of the tournament after 2 games in the group. I thought that Iniesta and Xavi should have been removed from the starting lineup.  I also believe...

Dutch rout Spain 5-1 in 2010 final rematch

A result that will send shockwaves throughout the rest of the tournament. Who saw that coming? No one. Well, Louis van Gaal probably did. But no one else. I can’t believe what we’ve just seen. The world champions have been battered beyond all recognition by a Holland team that not many people were willing to back tonight. What a performance from Holland – Van...

Confederations Cup after Second Round of Group Games

The scores of the second round of games were: Brazil (1) – Mexico (0) Italy (4) – Japan (3) Spain (10) – Tahiti (0) Uruguay (2) – Nigeria (1)   The Brazil and Italy wins mean that the only thing left to settle in Group A is whether Italy or Brazil faces Spain in the semi-finals. This makes me sad, because I was hoping...

Revisiting La Liga and EPL after Round of 16 UCL

In January, I made a couple of earth-shattering predictions: 1) Manchester United would win the English Premier League. 2) Barcelona would win the Spanish La Liga. Both clubs were up by about 2347892347890234789 points at the time, but I promised to revisit both of the leagues after the Round of 16 in the Champions League. I thought perhaps, if things were tight in the...

NFL Pre-Season and “Winter Break”

I’m still officially on hiatus, but I couldn’t help but comment on this NY Times article about the NFL. While I generally leave the NFL commentary here to others, I’ve been interested in the talk of a move to the 18-game season. Let me talk about something first to set the stage for my discussion on the NFL. Skip past the horizontal line if...

Thoughts on US Chances with ~3 days to go

First off, join my World Cup bracket group. I got the following excerpt from someone that will remain unnamed: Oh now I understand why you are heading there for the early rounds and not the finals. Sorry to hurt your feelings, but the teams you are supporting aren’t going to get past the first rounds. Except maybe for England – but I don’t expect...
