One of the hardest things to deal with in football is disappointment, and unfortunately, as fans, we all have a tendency to get our hopes up – meaning that thing can oh so easily come crashing back down to Earth at any moment. In a way, that’s what happened at the end of last season when Aston Villa’s ‘Road to Redemption’ of sorts came to a bitter end as they were defeated by Fulham in the Championship Playoff Final at Wembley Stadium.
As the domestic seasons get closer and closer to kicking off in the next few weeks, the majority of clubs around Europe are going through their final set of pre-season friendlies. Some have gone better than others for most of the big teams, whilst some smaller sides have had a chance to secure a result or two that otherwise would’ve been impossible. We’ve all spoken about how irrelevant most of these games can seem from time to time,
Bayern Munich take on Manchester City in the Champions Cup and with City having a weakened team, this looks to be a great opportunity for Bayern.
The Serie A title looks to be heading to Juventus once again after they added Cristiano Ronaldo to their squad this summer, can anyone stop them?
Los Angeles FC take on LA Galaxy in a big local derby in the MLS, and it is LA FC that look most likely to come out on top in this one.
Burnley head up to Scotland to face Aberdeen in their Europa League tie and they have the quality to dominate this and win the game.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is officially in the books, and if for some reason your love of football has diminished over the last few years, we’re confident in saying that the WC would’ve restored your love for the beautiful game. Now, with that over and done with following France’s triumph, it’s time to look ahead to domestic football once again. Divisions all around Europe will be starting up again in the next month or so,
The Major League Soccer season has been in full swing for a few months now, and with a few months remaining until the playoffs get underway, there are a lot of interesting possibilities in the pipeline. Several teams have been all but eliminated from contention already, some are already making plans for the conference semi-finals, and others are somewhere in the middle. You can debate as to whether or not the division is world class all you want,
As we get closer and closer to the start of the 2018/19 Premier League season, there are an abundance of questions being asked of the 20 clubs that will be competing. Some of them have obvious answers and the others don’t, but one thing that remains a mystery is what’s going on at Everton Football Club. They’ve shipped out over a dozen players either permanently or on loan, but on the other end of the spectrum,
Major League Soccer is a league that is often vilified by most football fans around the globe, and for a long time, it was well deserved. The standard of play wasn’t great and it seemed as if players were purely going over for the money, and whilst that may still be true to an extent, it feels like the tides are starting to turn just a little bit. In fact, this season, we’ve seen arguably some of the best football in the States since the inception of the league itself.
