David Beckham Football franchise still away from getting into MLS

When David Beckham’s Football franchise in America had come into existence, the aim was to take it into the Major League Soccer within three years, but, three years will pass soon since that date and there are no signs of the franchise getting anywhere close to MLS.


Another franchise which is based in Atlanta had also been announced at that same time and its progress has been so good that it is final to appear in the next Major League Soccer.

While there are many things which are obstructing the plans of Beckham’s franchise, the fact that they have chosen Miami as their base hasn’t helped them.

The city although is beautiful in every sense, but, not from the point of view of setting up a Football club simply because it does not have enough land.

The building of the stadium was one of the foremost things to do for Beckham and his colleagues and they were looking for a land in the central area of the city, but, the space for that was unavailable anywhere downtown.

So, the search shifted to the side areas and when a suitable site was found, its purchase got stuck and even up to this point, there are complications in the purchase. Continue reading →

Giovani Dos Santos earns Mexico call-up after good form in the MLS

Giovani Dos Santos has earned a well-deserved call-up for the Mexico national team after impressing in the MLS. Indeed, the LA Galaxy player has managed 5 goals and 5 assists in the 5 last league matches he played. However, he chose to decline the invitation without giving any reason.


Mexico head coach Juan Carlos Osorio has stated that Giovani dos Santos has been invited to form part of the team that will take part in the Copa America but that he had declined the invitation. He said that the Mexico staff has been impressed by dos Santos recent form and that they wanted him to be part of the team.

When asked about the reason given by dos Santos, Juan Carlos Osorio did not want to give any further information saying that such conversation is confidential and that it will be unethical for him to reveal any other information without the approval of Giovani dos Santos.

Dos Santos was live on radio when the Mexico head coach was announcing the players who were selected. He did not choose to react live but did make a series of tweets afterward. Continue reading →

Inconsistency has been a major problem for Vancouver Whitecaps

Inconsistency has been a major problem for Vancouver Whitecaps, as they have been unable to sustain the good start made to the season.

The team managed four wins from the opening five matches, but they have only managed to win the last five. This has allowed FC Dallas to reclaim the lead in the Western Conference. They have a one-point advantage over Vancouver along with a game in hand. Hence, there is a real urgency to return to winning ways at Vancouver and the club plan to do this with a win over Colorado Rapids this weekend.

Manager Carl Robinson admitted that his team have not been consistent enough in the final third. This has meant that they have allowed other teams to take advantage of the defence of mistakes, of which there have been a few. Robinson has hinted that the team has been undergoing a lot of work during training in order to improve efficiency in attack, but it is yet to pay off. Even though they have managed just two wins, this form is at least better than the results seen in the month of April when the team only managed a single victory. In recent months, though, Vancouver have shown the ability to bounce back from defeats. Continue reading →

LA Galaxy appear to be suffering from the loss of their talisman Landon Donovan

LA Galaxy certainly appear to be suffering from the loss of their talisman Landon Donovan, as they simply not have been at their best this season.

The team failed to get any points in a league match after the 2-0 loss against Vancouver. This defeat has left with team just one place above the bottom of the table. It would have been an unimaginable position a few months ago after LA Galaxy lifted the MLS cup. Since the 2-0 win over Chicago Fire in the opening game of the season, the team have been looking extremely poor.

After having signed Steven Gerrard from Premier league outfit Liverpool, things appeared to be on the up for LA Galaxy even after the exit of Donovan. The club’s former captain has been a major reason behind the success that LA Galaxy have enjoyed in the league. It was suggested that the presence of our great players like Robbie Keane would help the club tide over the absence of a player like Donovan until Gerrard came to the club after the end of the Premier League campaign. Coach Bruce Arena is a man under pressure, but he has stated that there will be no excuses if Galaxy repeat the poor performance against Seattle Sounders in the next match. Continue reading →

Ricki Lambert says Club can win Europa League

Liverpool star Ricki Lambert says that the club can win the Europa League this season. Such a victory will provide them with the passage into the group stages of the Champions League straightaway.

The Merseyside outfit will be aware that this remains as the only hope of reaching the knockout stages of the prestigious competition. This is because the Reds find themselves outside the top four with clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal, and Southampton favourites with just over 10 matches left in the season.

Even though Liverpool have suffered just one defeat in the last 16 matches of all competitions, they are not being backed by the bookmakers for a top four finish. Lambert has struggled for goals since his £ 4 million move from Southampton, but the England international has provided some crucial goals for the team. The 33-year-old has found the back of the net only twice in the Premier league, but most of his 18 appearances have come from the bench. After having played 730 minutes of action, he has scored only thrice. Continue reading →
