    This just goes to show you how little America cares about soccer. Labelled as one of the greatest soccer teams ever assembled, F.C. Barcelona expect to receive royal treatment at almost every country they visit, but not in the United States of America.  Instead, on American soil they are treated no differently than a group […]

    It has been 18 years since Real Madrid last won the Copa del Rey, but on Wednesday they would recapture the Spanish trophy with a 1-0 extra-time victory over archrivals Barcelona.  Cristiano Ronaldo’s header in the 103rd minute placed the cup back in the hands of Real Madrid, but it didn’t stay there for long, […]

    A belt.  For one poor soul, that would prove to be the difference between a photo with the world’s top footballer, Lionel Messi, and public embarrassment on national television. Attempting to chase down the Barcelona star at the airport for a once in a lifetime photo opportunity, this man’s hustle left him with a difficult […]

    Sorry Sergio, but your faking of an injury was caught on tape and has now been transformed into a GIF for the world to see.  And the saddest part is that for all of his diving and acting, his Barcelona squad was still unable to take advantage of a 10-man Inter Milan side (Thiago Motta […]
