All-Time Premier League: Leeds United
Down the Leeds Road we go, making the journey to Leeds itself. It’s a short trip, and one which would not be necessary had Hilton Crowther had his way. When the original Leeds City club was expelled from the Football League for financial irregularities in 1919, its players were auctioned. Within hours of the auction taking place, a meeting of the club’s supporters had resulted in its dissolution and reformation. Crowther, the chairman of Huddersfield Town, bought the new Leeds United club with the intention of amalgamating the two. To be precise, the former, financially struggling club was to be liquidated and its players packed off to Leeds. The townspeople of Huddersfield foiled that plan, and Crowther had to concentrate on creating a new team instead of moving an old one.

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).

Mass Clean Up Under Way After Euro 2020 Final
"You're not an England fan and we don't want you." Those are the words from England captain Harry Kane after members of the England football team were subjected to racist abuse on social media following the team's defeat at the hands of Italy in the Euro 2020 final. Both sides played out 1-1 draw in normal time with Luke Shaw scoring for England in the early stages of the game. This was however cancelled out when Italy equalised in the second half with a goal from Bonucci, so the match had to go to extra time and eventually penalties.
