Fulham fan, here, even if they're relegated. They were the first team to take real chances with American player[b]S[/b]. Yes, there have been Americans in top-level English, German and Italian leagues, but not in the numbers that FFC had them.

I hate to see an institution of 63 years, go, but my guess is circulation died off a long time ago, so they agendized it, and will now end it to make points for gay marriage and gun control.
Love the blurb. Many Americans also work tirelessly on behalf of those who don't w...

JP DellaCamera is not bad at all. He's paid his dues and then some. He was ESPN's only soccer guy all through the 1990s, he'd do Champions' League until they picked up the English broadcasts, he did weekly shows about the leagues in Brazil, he would do the world-wide wrap-up, all kinds of stuff.

Every club in the world wants/needs a creative midfielder. FFC hasn't had one since Danny Murphy. Well, there was Moussa Dembele, but he really never got to be the man as he was snapped up by Spurs.
I'm liking these signings!
McCormack, I'm hearing, was signed for 5 or 6 million, with the rest a...

Maradona played for Argentinos Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, Boca. Napoli were really in the thick of it in the 1980s and early 1990s, no shame in playing there. Serie A was the place to be at those times.

The Swiss are getting behind the Argentine back line, either one would be a great match for us. What I do NOT understand, is you have guys like Higauin and DiMaria, yet all the eggs are in the Messi basket. Argentina could/should dominate.
