Ready, set, Algarve!

Yup, it's that glorious time of year again when we are all jealous of the USWNT for kickin' it in a Portuguese paradise.The first game of the tourney for our ladies starts in about half-an-hour.

It just gets better and better.

That was sarcasm. There is no shortage of reasons to cringe over World Cup 2022, unfathomably still set to take place in Qatar. Seriously, what will it take for UEFA to stand up like a big boy and say no to FIFA? Because that is exactly what it will take to change things for the proper.

Duuuuuuude, happy anniversary.

I believe that would be the proper greeting if you ran into (my soccer idol) Dennis Bergkamp today. After all, it was exactly 13 years ago that he did this...

FabJo!

Yup, the 'Gladbach winger netted his first of the season to key a win on Sunday. I meant to get this up last night and it completely slipped my mind. Since he had such a fine game, let's just put up the full highlight reel.

The Spot Cleaner (updated)

Conor O'Brien fired the lone goal from the penalty spot as suddenly warming Wiener Neustadt moved closer to the safety zone with a home victory over Austria Vienna. The midfielder has now scored from the dot in three of his side's five league wins this season.

UPDATE: Sha-blam. Click for the big-un.

Fun With Flags

A couple days ago, a Danish report claimed that Aalborg had interviewed Stabæk boss Bob Bradley for their soon-to-be open top job (current manager Kent Nielsen will join Odense BK this summer). I can verify that this is definitely not the case. The flag goes up on that bit.

However, he very much does seem to be a person of preliminary interest in the AaB coaching search - I just cannot confirm that part yet. Of course, Bradley is busy on an MLS tour at the moment, so maybe we can file this away for later. I will stay on it.
