Wenger Signs New Deal At Last

2014-05-30T13:17:26Z

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has finally signed a new contract after months of speculation about his future. The Frenchman has never attached much significance to whether a contract is signed or not, instead assuring fans that his word is his word. But with Wenger coming under pressure from fans and media alike (much of the criticism from Gunners fans will surely have shocked the former Monaco manager), there had been suggestions that he may finally have reached the end of his tether. ...

Atletico Run Out Of Steam As Ronaldo And Co Triumph in Lisbon

2014-05-25T02:22:01Z

In the end, it was all too much for Diego Simeone and his Atletico Madrid side.

Just when it looked as though Diego Godin's first-half header was going to be enough to bring home Atleti's maiden European crown, up popped Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos in the 93rd minute to plant a header of his own into past Thibaut Courtois to send the match into extra-time.

Atletico Feat One Of The Greatest

2014-05-18T12:35:29Z

(image)

When the dust settles on Atletico Madrid's amazing La Liga triumph, it will be recognized as one of the greatest of the last 50 years.

This is a club who, in winning their first Liga title since 1996, broke Spanish soccer's traditional hegemony, at a time they had no right to do so. Coach Diego Simeone does not have a Lionel Messi at his disposal, nor the world's most expensive player Cristiano Ronaldo, nor last summer's most expensive purchase Gareth bale.

Put Your Money On City

2014-04-30T06:46:41Z

Chelsea's 2-0 win over Liverpool on Sunday was a real kick in the teeth for soccer's romantics.

The Reds' destiny - and the prospect of a first title in 24 years - was in their own hands until Steven Gerrard's cruel slip enabled Demba Ba to run clear and put Jose Mourinho's side 1-0 up before the break. Willian rubbed salt into Liverpool wounds late on.

Spotlight on Schwarzer

At the grand old age of 41, Mark Schwarzer could have a big say on the destination of this season's Champions League.

Chelsea's first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech was ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a shoulder injury in the 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. Schwarzer replaced the Czech at the Vicente Calderon and proved a safe pair of hands as Chelsea eased to a draw in Spain.

(image) In one of the most enthralling games of the Premier League season, Liverpool took the box seat in the title race with a 3-2 win over Manchester City.

On a day when Anfield remembered the 96 people who perished in the Hillsborough disaster 25 years ago, Liverpool took a 2-0 half-time lead through Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel.

Back in the penultimate game of the 2010 World Cup, a desperate Miroslav Klose sat prone on the bench during Germany's 3-2 third place playoff win over Uruguay, with the striker just one goal shy of equaling Brazilian striker Ronaldo's all-time World Cup goal scoring record of 15.
