At Monday’s FIFA Ballon d’Or ceremony, Spanish football was king. All 11 players on the FIFA/FIFPro World XI were players from La Liga, and only one of which, Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, was from outside Real Madrid and Barcelona. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t notable snubs. Read more…

The Mystery of Dani Pacheco

Going Forward: Ways Liverpool can improve in the final 10 games

Steven Gerrard’s hat-trick Tuesday night against Everton was special, and Liverpool picked up a much needed and very deserved three points over their Merseyside rivals. But, to be perfectly frank, Liverpool’s form in league play has been nothing short of disappointing.

Given the way the team played under Kenny Dalglish last season, the results this campaign have left a lot to be desired from the Reds – despite putting in a number of good performances.
