Hello footie fans,
I’m back from some much needed R&R (soccer and internet free I might add) and there’s a lot to catch up on.
- Of course, there was the most analyzed ‘first game’ in professional sports history.
- No Henry? No Freddy! Freddy Ljungberg leaves Arsenal and signs with West Ham. Is it THAT bad that you’d really rather be a Hammer than a Gunner? Geesh!
- Argentina wins the Under-20 World Cup. Corrupt, third party sports agents take notice.
- Aston Villa swoops up Nigel Reo-Coker and Marlon Harewood. Then test out the goods on the MLS.
