Robert Beric on the Malort Experience and the Reaction (Exclusive)

Share

It’s very safe to say that the manner in which Chicago Fire FC announced the acquisition of Slovenian striker Robert Beric from French Ligue 1 club AS Saint-Etienne has been a much bigger story than the signing itself.

The announcement consisted of a video of Beric walking out of a snow storm and into the bar of the Blackstone hotel and then doing a “Chicago handshake,” an experience that includes a shot of Jeppsen’s Malort. The idea was the brain child of Tyler Emerick, Chicago Fire FC Director of Content. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch the clip below:

Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at Hull City (FA Cup 4th Round) 

Share

Chelsea FC at Hull City is one FA Cup 4th round match-up this weekend that is very much in favor of the road side. The Tigers are winless (D3, L7) in their last ten FA Cup meetings against Chelsea. Across all competitions, they are winless in their last 15 (D2, L13) of this series.

Anything can happen of course, but a Chelsea loss would certainly defy long odds. In looking at what kind of first team Blues boss Frank Lampard might field, one can expect some squad rotation. Willy Caballero, Fikayo Tomori and Pedro haven’t featured since the win over Nottingham Forest in the last round and thus we might see this trio of players in the starting XI on the team sheet.

Chelsea at Hull City (FA Cup) Team News: Abraham, James, Pulisic, Kingsley

Share

fa cup

Chelsea FC have reached the FA Cup title game in two of the last three seasons. The competition resumes this weekend with fourth round play, where the Blues will travel to Hull City. Although they’ll be taking on a smaller club, it’ll be very atmospheric as the venue is sold out.

The west London club will almost certainly be without the services of Tammy Abraham, who suffered an ankle injury in Tuesday night’s draw with Arsenal. Manager Frank Lampard will likely give an update on his situation at his new conference tomorrow.  Also out of commission for this one are Reece James, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic. The 21-year-old American winger should return likely return Feb. 17 against Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho Takes Swipe at United Over Bruno Fernandes Transfer Saga

Share

Jose Mourinho may have lost his first and only game against Manchester United since the club sacked him, but he did land a pretty hard jab against his most recent former club. On one hand, now is not the time for the Portugese to be throwing shade at Old Trafford, given how Tottenham, his current side, are still looking up to them in the standings, albeit on tie-breaker.

On the other hand, the United transfer saga with Sporting CP star Bruno Fernandes has become laughably protracted, and annoyingly tedious. The failure of the two sides to finally get this deal done is easy fodder for criticism.

Raphael Wicky Says Chicago Fire FC Rebuild Won’t Happen Overnight

Share

New Year, New You. That was the zeitgeist of today’s 2020 Chicago Fire Media Day.

Here is a short list of what’s new from 2019:

owner, home stadium, club badge (which didn’t go over so well with a majority of the fan base), team colors (which look a lot better on merchandise than they did in the original branding reveal), official name (FC was added for help with Google machine SERPs), head coach (Raphael Wicky whose press conference opened Media Day), technical staff, a technical director and broadcast team (which hasn’t even been named yet).

Super Bowl peaked in 1991 with Buffalo Bills, Whitney Houston

Grandpa Abe Simpson may have hacked my website and penned the essay that follows. Or at least it might read that way. The Buffalo Bills went to four straight Super Bowls and lost all four in the 1990s, but man did they give us the best Super Bowl of all time. Like Tom Petty said, “even the losers- get lucky sometimes.”

Obviously, they never did but sometimes history is better when it’s written be the losers. It wasn’t just the Buffalo Bills who made that Super Bowl so special.

Manchester United Transfer Talk: Fernandes, Bellingham, Haaland

Share

We have just nine days left in the January transfer window and Manchester United are yet to sign a single new player. Is it any wonder club legend and strongly opinionated pundit Gary Neville slammed the club’s transfer policy so badly?

Who will be the first player signed this window? Well, everyone thought it was going to be Sporting CP midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who was potentially set to move to United in the summer, but for whatever reason, MUFC just didn’t make it happen. Here we are in the winter window, and again, people thought the Fernandes move was actually going to come to fruition. Now, the deal is very much in doubt.

Christian Pulisic Fitness Update Given by Frank Lampard

Share

Christian Pulisic is progressing in his rehabilitation from an adductor injury, but it’s still going to be a bit before he’s fully match fit again. That’s a shame for Chelsea FC, who could really use him in the final third right now. As today’s draw with Arsenal conveyed, the Blues have been lacking in attack lately.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said after the game that Pulisic had been performing well for his side, before he got hurt, and it’s clear they could really use him. Chelsea has had a run of form that has left that all important fourth position up for grabs, but it United, Sheffield and Wolves just haven’t stepped up to take it.
