Italy Out

The 2018 World Cup is one with no Dutch, no Chileans, no Americans, and now no Italians. In one of the most upside down World Cup cycles ever shock strikes again. Italy is four time World Cup Champions and has played in every single World Cup since 1958. To not be able to qualify for the World Cup brings on a sense of sadness and panic.

Midterm for the UEFA Champions League

The first 3 match days in the Champions League have provided plenty of thrills, excitement, and heartbreak. With 3 games to go till the Round 16 we’ll look at who is in, who is out, and who is on the bubble: GROUP A Manchester United- Darth Jose Vader Mourinho and the Empire of Manchester United are looking good after three games with three wins.
