European football’s summer transfer window closed two days ago, August 31st, and the buying frenzy that marked its passing saw two significant moves for the Bosnian national team. The more notable of the two involves Zvjezdan Misimović, who left Wolfsburg to join Istanbul’s famed Galatasaray. Elsewhere, Admir Vladavić returned to Slovak champions MŠK Žilina, leaving Austira in pursuit of regular football, the Champions League and a national team call up. Unfortunately, this summer was equally notable for the potential transfers that never went through. More below the field.

Well, that was humbling. Going into the game, I honestly thought we had a very good chance of coming away with something – a draw at least. Instead we were just left with a bitter taste in our mouths. The world will inevitably focus on France finally getting it together, but I’d ... [read more]
Well, this is unfamiliar. If you had told me two months ago that we would go into this game against France with half of their population writing Les Bleus off and the other half biting their fingernails, I would have been skeptical to say the least. One shocking loss to Belarus in ... [read more]
That’s how we played for at least 3/4ths of the game against Luxembourg, and after scoring three goals between the 6th and 16th minutes, who could blame us? A convincing performance that saw us emerge victorious while avoiding injuries, yellow cards and, frankly, over-exerting ourselves. More below the fold. (more…)

Well, it’s time. Many months after the original draw, we’re finally set to begin Euro 2010 qualifiers with a blank slate and fresh hope of finally qualifying for a major international tournament. Our first two matches in Group D pit us against Luxembourg away and France at home. In this post I’ll ... [read more]

Next month, Muhamed Bešić turns 18. Last month, he was officially promoted to the Hamburger SV first team, receiving number 34.

While the big news of the day is that Chelsea is free to go after a fifty year old child manager of the utmost ability, it's backup keeper Ross Turnbull's son Josh who is stealing the show. After the final match there were some festivities on the pitch. Josh didn't ...
The Munich Philharmonic penned this little aria for their boys heading to England for the grandest match of the year on Saturday. Bounding around Google has surfaced nothing in the way of an English translation for the lyrics, but it's worth it simply to watch someone work 'Heynckes' into a ...
During this evening's Copa del Rey final, won by Atletico Madrid in extra time at the Bernabeu (big win, that one), Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo were both sent off. The latter was unjustified, though Cristiano probably could've been sent off for kicking Juanfran off the ball earlier, and there's ...
This might be better than the Champions League final itself. Heineken decided to run a gag where if a guy could get his girl to go along with buying stadium seats for $1899, he would win tickets to the final in London. One man actually rose above the odds - ...

Just days after the club granted a young boy with cancer his Make-A-Wish wish a friendly against the senior side, the fans of the Portland came up with a choreograph. Only it's not your typical collective - this one was for gay tolerance, fresh on the heels of the spate ...
The Moldovan first division. An eighteen year-old kid named Radu Mitu making his professional debut. This happens. It's like watching a three-legged dog fall to the back of the pack as it tries to run a race. The wind took it. Just...the wind took it. Hopefully Radu has a great sense of ...
Leonardo, the PSG director not the Ninja Turtle, isn't exactly having a fine few weeks. After Thiago Silva was sent off for lightly placing his hands on the referee last week, Leonardo decided it would be a smart idea to bump the referee in the tunnel. This may result in ...
