"Not Everyone Is Messi"

By Marissa Blackman Brace yourselves because I'm about to go on a little rant! I can't be the only one who notices these things. I like to get my soccer content from a wide variety of sources. I scroll along the meme-based, click bait ridden accounts just much as I prowl through the latest writings from more reputable sources of "news." For the past several weeks, I've been seeing posts showing Cavani and Neymar debating over who will take a kick. They all have captions along the lines of "not everyone is Messi." I get what they're saying. Messi would let Neymar take the kick, but Cavani isn't going for that. Ok. Fine. But...there is something so grammatically terrible about that phrase. It must make sense to somebody, but it racks my brain. There's an even bigger problem with these incessant posts. Neymar has been trying to take a kick for weeks. Cavani has been telling him no for weeks. Cavani has ultimately taken most, if not all, of

DIFERENÇAS ENTRE O FUTEBOL EUROPEU E O FUTEBOL BRASILEIRO

por Hugo Haacke Começando na Europa e se espalhando pelo mundo, hoje, o futebol é o esporte coletivo mais praticado em todo o mundo. Tendo objetivos e regras iguais, o futebol se diferencia de lugar para lugar na sua forma de jogar, torcer e gerenciar. Entre a Europa e a América Latina, onde o futebol é mais popular, há significantes diferenças, tendo como principal referência nesse continente, o Brasil, o país do futebol. A primeira diferença e mais perceptível é a tática e a forma de jogar. No futebol europeu, a velocidade durante a partida inteira é algo natural. Há também características gerais como o costume de manter a linha de quatro no meio de campo e, a estratégia de recomposição do time inteiro, o jogo mais centrado, objetivo e calculado. Já o futebol brasileiro, conforme o tempo passa, os técnicos vêm aproximando a tática de seus times ao futebol europeu – principalmente depois da copa de 1982. Mas em sua essência, o futebol brasileiro sempre se caracterizou por lance

#GameDayEve Rochester Rhinos Edition

It would be totally remiss not to note that the biggest news regarding Wilmington Hammerheads FC has nothing to do with the game tomorrow. It has been reported by Scratching the Pitch , a website run by longtime USL blogger Chad Hollingsworth, that the Hammerheads will take a hiatus  from USL throughout the 2017 season. In a subsequent report from Dan Spears of Star News , a Wilmington newspaper, George Altirs, the owner of Wilmington Hammerheads FC, was quoted saying " Nothing is confirmed ." At this point, the Hammerheads organization has neither confirmed nor denied the reports that the team won't be competing in 2017. What's my opinion? The fact that George Altirs said that nothing is confirmed rather than completely denying the possibility of a hiatus seems to be strong evidence that it actually could happen. If, in fact, a hiatus is a possibility, I'd like to know why before making any statements about it. Is the team voluntarily considering a hiatus? If
