Ranting On...Frank Lampard

I am a Geezer, and I am highly annoyed by the way some “Chelsea fans” are talking about Frank Lampard. Trust me, I get that our club legend playing for Manchester City isn’t an ideal situation, but come on!

How can you call Frank Lampard disloyal to Chelsea?  He gave the best years of his career to this club, and he’d probably still be there if the club  was willing.

First let’s talk about the fact that he left. If he’d stayed he’d get no minutes. I don’t know whether Chelsea didn’t offer him a contract or he didn’t accept the offer, but either way can you really blame him? He chose not to stay at a club was assuredly not going to be in the starting lineup.

The man did the best he could by going to NYCFC. Let me correct that, he had the decency to go there. I’m sure there are clubs in England that would be glad to take him, but out of respect for his former club he opted to move to another country and play in another league. That decisions proves the fact that Frank Lampard has been nothing but loyal to Chelsea FC. 

Unfortuately, NYCFC loaned him straight back into the very league he intended to leave, but that decisions was out of his control. How can you possibly be mad at him for playing at a club he didn’t chose to go to? It’s not he transferred straight there from Chelsea.

If you ask me, Geezers who were so in love with Super Frank just a few a months ago should support him now. I’m not saying people need to become Cityzens, but at least give him the respect he gave you by not hating on him for being with Manchester City.

  1. Shame Lampard couldn't just finish out his career with the club that he is so legendarily represented. Some players just would not look right in another color and he is one of them. This is also a mini-example of the prejudice system within the MLS that allocates talent while taking advantage of the Beckham rule. Think that second NY squad would get all that talent without all it's connections? As the MLS maintains a false attempt to distribute evenly and run the MLS fairly for all teams.

"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


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

Hammerheads Tie Montreal

by Marissa Blackman For the second time this season, the Wilmington Hammerheads FC  competed against FC Montreal. Although the first half of the match was competitive, both teams were lacking at times. There was a bit of disconnection in passes between the Hammerheads in the early minutes of the match which lead to some preventable turnovers. Montreal certainly made its presence known by maintaining a fair share of possession, but the Canadian club never did much with the ball. Each time Montreal attempted to approach the goal, the Hammerheads cleared the ball. There were virtually no moments in the first half where Montreal made a real threat of a goal. The Hammerheads made several goal attempts but none were successful. Although the first half was a goalless one, the Hammerheads seemed much more likely to score. In the second half, Montreal had a larger presence. Though FC Montreal maintained possession in the first minutes after half time, the efforts did not force Hammerheads
