For strength I mostly do bodyweight exercises. ...

I watched a lot of Kaiserslautern a couple of seasons ago for various reasons.

Since Srdan Lakic moved from K-town, he hasn't scored a goal, a testament to the ...

Arsenal have had pretty terrible luck in the past couple of years. They used it all in the invincibles season. They've lost three cup finals each of which was lost near the end of the game. From 07 onwards, they've had good teams. Since 2010, they have been by some measure a better team than Chelsea...
