The club of Aesthetics. How Venezia is making its comeback to Serie A led by Americans
Venice might be one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, known for its endless canals and rich history. Still, it is a part of Italy. And Italy is football. In the case of the Venezia Football Club, being a part of a city with such an enormous cultural heritage has been a challenging experience throughout the decades. The May of 2021 might have been another turning point in a 114-year long journey of I Leoni ałati.
The proud lineage of Johan Cruyff's radical ideology that redefined football
The theories that Cruyff espoused with such stunning effect in Barcelona had their roots in the first international played by Scotland and England in Partick in 1872, a century ago. Undoubtedly, he was a radical, but he was a radical who understood that he was a part of a great lineage.
At Long, Long Last, the Champions League Final
The Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea to crown the best soccer team in Europe — even though the two sides both hail from the UK — was always going to be hyped as one of those games where both sides overthink things.

Dear Megan Rapinoe, Thank You
“What we know is how successful women’s sports have been in the face of discrimination, in the face of a lack of investment in every level in comparison to men.” Megan Rapinoe, March 2021
The future is bright for the NWSL
Soccer is quickly becoming a more popular sport in the United States, mainly due to the overwhelming success of the U.S. Women's National Team winning the past two Women's World Cup championships. This has developed into more interest in the domestic women's league, the National Women's Soccer League. But despite more interest and success, the NWSL and the USWNT have faced many hurdles in establishing women's soccer as a force in U.S. professional sports.
8 Life Lessons From An Arsenal Supporter
1.Learning To Win Ugly Is Imperative Arsenal is especially known for playing attractive football, but since 2004, we have found winning titles while playing well, impossible to come by. The likes of Chelsea under Jose Mourinho and subsequent managers have mastered the art of winning ugly and gone on to dominate English football in ways in which Arsenal fans can only dream of. Some may call it pragmatism or defensive footy, but so long as it leads to increased silverware, nothing else matters but winning.
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE vs THE FIFA WORLD CUP: A FIGHT FOR SUPREMACY
Football fans all over the globe have been divided in parts on their opinion over which competition is bigger, which stage is bigger, what matters the most, and which of the two outshines the other in any player’s trophy cabinet. So let’s dive into this and compare them, aspect by aspect:-
Why You Should Visit 'The Home Of Football'
For a long time I have barely been interested in football. My father is a fan, but not of one club in particular, oh no, he supports whoever is currently winning the match that he is watching at that particular time.
Football fortresses: The Stanks
Berwick-upon-Tweed is border territory. As English and Scottish forces battled over this land, the town changed hands 13 times. Today, it’s English, but with a strong Scottish accent: the senior football teams in town compete in competitions north of the border, and in the local dialect its not unusual to hear of a Scottish ‘heed’ meeting a Northumbrian ‘burl’.
USA vs Canada
Going into Saturday’s matchup both teams knew that the outcome would be a statement to all of the progress one nation or the other has made going into the final stages of World Cup Qualifying. The choice to play such a highly important match at 4pm local time in Kansas City is questionable at best. Especially considering the temperature was predicted by to be 85F and humid. Some like myself might of thought it would be better to push it back till 7pm when the heat would play less of a factor but that’s just the way of things.
UEFA Euro 2020
The 2020 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA Euro 2020 or simply Euro 2020, was the 16th UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe organised by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the European Championship competition, UEFA president Michel Platini declared that the tournament would be hosted in several nations as a "romantic" one-off event, with 11 cities in 11 UEFA countries each providing venues for the tournament. Defending champions Portugal, who won the 2016 competition in France, were eliminated in the round of 16 by Belgium. Italy won their second European Championship title by beating England on penalties in the final following a 1–1 draw after extra time.
The Ball With Wiings
When RB Leipzig knocked Manchester United out in the Champions League group stages last season, a particular Devil friend of mine went on a tangent and finally stopped at how embarrassing it is to be thrown out by a team that carries the name of a freaking energy drink and has no history whatsoever!
Piero Gratton. A visionary designer who did the most beautiful AS Roma rebranding
The name of Piero Gratton is mostly known for the Lupetto of Roma — a minimalistic style-designed logo featuring the wolf’s head. In reality, his impact on the Roma identity and the way football clubs present themselves for the general audience is way more impressive. Gratton was a visionary, not just a simple graphic designer with one lucky design in his portfolio.
The Barca Boys
From maternity ward roommates to teammates to friends, two West Virginia lads have been kicking a soccer ball for as long as they can remember. Now, thanks to their dedication, desire, and determination, they have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to fulfill a futbol dream.
