May 31st, 2018

You remember the 2006 Italian football scandal that rocked European football? It is referred to as ‘Calciopoli’ in Italian. It was a major scandal that rocked Italian top flight football for years. It involved the Serie B as well and involved several top professional clubs.

The police uncovered the scandal in mid-2006, implicating a number of top clubs in their reports. The clubs include Lazio, Reggina, AC Milan, Fiorentina and eventual league champions Juventus. The scandal involved relations between the teams through telephones and other means as the managers, and match officials colluded to rig matches. Read the rest of this entry »

REMEMBERING CHELSEA FORMER MAN ADRIAN MUTU

September 24th, 2017

As Chelsea keep struggling to get their targets this summer, this season seems like one that would be hard fought.


The Blues lost the chase for Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool. They also lost the chance to sign Swansea forward Fernando Llorente as Tottenham beat them to it. Leicester City’s RiyadMahrez might join them but nothing is sure anymore. Danny Drinkwater has expressed desire to move to Stamford Bridge but The Foxes are yet to accede to the request.

Antonio Conte tried luring RomeluLukaku back to Chelsea earlier but Manchester United beat them to it. While the Italian has added three to four new players, he would be set for transfer deadline pressure to add more, considering the number that left.

As Chelsea continue to suffer more woes in the transfer market, we remember when they signed Adrian Mutu back in 2003.

The Romanian joined the west London club that summer. He moved from Parma to Chelsea for a then large sum of €22.5 million. That was before the transfer market got as inflated as it is now. Read the rest of this entry »

Romanian media Bashing Christoph Daum

July 14th, 2017

It’s fair to say that the relationship between Christoph Daum, who is in charge of the senior soccer team of Romania, and the Romanian media is not the strongest and the friendliest.


The Romanian media has not let go of any opportunity to bash the Germany born coach who has been at his post for the last 12 months and has not guided the team to a lot of victories in this duration.

It seriously annoyed Daum last week when ahead of a big match versus Chile, a media person took a dig at him asking him when he was going to leave his post.

Answering the question in a very angry tone, Daum accused that journalist of harming the Romanian soccer and not helping it in any way with that kind of journalism.

Daum said in that press conference that he has been putting facts and figures in front of the media and has been giving them the reasons why the team is not being consistent and what is the work to be done in future to achieve the consistency, but, the media is singing its own tune and is not ready to pay any attention to his remarks.

LOOKING AT STARS THAT NEVER WON MAJOR TITLES

May 8th, 2017

Football players always dream of winning titles after all the hard work.


It might not their top priority but at some point they would always want the joy of lifting titles. Some talented players have worked very hard yet they have never won major titles. We look at some of them, recent ones in no particular order.

Italian Giuseppe Signori makes this list. He netted 283 times in his career but he never quite got to lift a major trophy. He was the top scorer in the Serie A for three years out of four. He was the top scorer in the Coppa Italia two times but it was after he left that Lazio won the Coppa Italia, UEFA Super Cup and even the Serie A.

Bernd Schneider is a decent star that made finals multiple times but he never lifted the title. He played in the Bundesliga, coming close in second place twice in 1999/2000 and 2001/2002; he played in the DFB Pokal, emerging runners up in 2001/02 and 2008/09, and he was in the team that reached the Champions League final in 2001/02 yet no single victory. He played at the FIFA World Cup in 2002 yet a silver medal. How unlucky he must feel. Luigi Di Biagio also has numerous runner up finishes with no major credit. Read the rest of this entry »

Mutu believes in Chelsea

March 28th, 2017

Former Chelsea player Adrian Mutu has stated that Chelsea will be champions this season.


He believes that there is no other side at the moment in the Premier League that can stop them and that they are the favorite to win the league.

For Adrian Mutu, Chelsea deserves to win the league as they have been the most consistent side this season. He said that Antonio Conte has successfully motivated his players and that they have become a formidable team.

The former Chelsea player said that players such as Costa and Hazard had found their form back under Conte and this is one of the reasons why the team has been able to perform so well this season. He said that Conte has also made some shrewd additions to the team. He believes that Kante has added more energy in the middle of the park and also provide an additional cover for the defender.
