El Clasico to Serve Up Another Great 90 Minutes of Football
Luis Suarez's impending return to football will be the subject of plenty of attention, leading up to his debut with Barcelona, following his ban resulting from biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup.
The Uruguayan attacker will certainly be chomping at the bit to return to centre stage, and there couldn't be a more fitting venue. On the last Saturday in October, Barcelona will visit Real Madrid in the first act of "El Clasico" this season, with the two attacking sides in great form. Suarez will play some part; whether he starts or not is dependent on a variety of circumstances, and the world will be watching.
There's different schools of thought as to who Manchester City's best player is of the Sheikh Mansour generation. Purists would probably say David Silva, idealists would say Vincent Kompany, pragmatists Sergio Aguero. But I don't think there can be any question that Yaya Toure has been their most important. There's an argument to say that without him Manchester City might well have won nothing up to this point.
Another weekend, and another loss for Queens Park Rangers. There are positives to be taken from their performance against Liverpool on Sunday, and a couple of negatives to boot. Preventing Liverpool from scoring for the better part of 70 minutes is an achievement that any team could be proud of, especially one rooted to the foot of the table, as QPR are.
Few club rivalries can match the mixture of high-priced talent, political tension and passion that encompass the all-important La Liga match between Barcelona and Real Madrid. As expected, this season's first encounter between the two Spanish giants brings with it plenty of talking points. Barcelona will travel to the Bernabeu amid talk of La Liga goalscoring records soon to be broken, in-form superstars, fairytale debuts and history. Lots, and lots, of history.
The end of an era is upon us. At the end of the year, Landon Donovan will hang up his professional football cleats for the last time. While LA Galaxy fans still get to see Donovan sport gold and blue for the next two months, US Soccer fans had to bid farewell to their faithful captain on Friday night. The 32-year-old took the field for his 157th, and final, appearance for the U.S. Men’s National Team in East Hartford, Connecticut on a chilly night. The stands were packed to capacity, over 36,000 fans were on their feet donning their US National team best as they applauded a US soccer legend on his career.
The latest in a long line of unfit players showed up in the media over the weekend, but didn’t on the pitch, as Adel Taarabt was absolutely blasted by manager Harry Redknapp in his post match press conference after Queens Park Rangers were beaten 3-2 at the hands of an incredibly fortunate Liverpool side. Obviously, Redknapp was seething from the result, but did it warrant such an outburst against one of his own players?
