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 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...

FCSS: 2015 Women’s World Cup + UEFA CL Review

June 13 – Champions League Final Review / Women’s World Cup Doug: First, I got to see some of Norway demolishing Thailand. It’s interesting that the southeast Asian countries are good in the women’s game. Is it because the Islamic world doesn’t do women’s sports in full or because size doesn’t matter as much in women’s? Japan are, after all, reigning world champs. Vietnam...

MFF in FIFA14 and Real Life

In real life, MFF ̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣̣is 6 points clear at the top of the Allsvenskan. They also won 1-0 over FK Ventspils moments ago, sending them to the next round of the UEFA Champions League. The draw for the next round was on July 18th, which means we know Malmö FF will face Sparta Prague. If Malmö lose against Sparta Prague (which looks likely), they...

Club World Cup Prediction (2014)

For those unaware, there is a thing called the Club World Cup. It would be like if the San Antonia Spurs played the champions of all the other continents in a short tournament (I realize I’m changing the format of Champions League and neglecting the rest of CONCACAF, but work with me). There has been nothing consistent, but the NBA champions have played the...

Prediction #5: UCL to Real Madrid

Unfortunately, these days I do not get FOX Soccer and thus I have only caught a few highlights on the Champions League. I hate this pick. I realize the days of Franco are long gone and the ties between Franco and Real Madrid are somewhat suspect, but I can’t get the taste out of my mouth. Maybe it’s just the aristocracy associated with the...
