The Quest for Gold Starts Here

Flashback Friday.

Swing back to one of my favourite time’s of year when I get to hang and chat with the USWNT. An honour to watch and talk to the biggest and best in the women’s game, especially as they prepared for the 2012 Olympic Qualifiers.

Perhaps I was their lucky charm! I mean Hope Solo, Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan and their magic squad did strike gold in my hometown of London!

A Conversation With…Andre Villas Boas

There’s no doubt Brendan Rodgers will be under intense scrutiny and pressure when the new season starts. Taking over the managerial reigns at Liverpool and following in the footsteps of legend Kenny Dalglish will definitely be a tough task for the ex-Swansea coach.

However, if there is one man who easily wins the gold medal for “Manager Under the Most Pressure” it has to be Andre Villas Boas. Will we see the man who dazzled the football universe at Porto? Or will we see the AVB who failed miserably at Chelsea? As mentioned earlier this month on this site, I don’t believe lightning will strike twice for Villas Boas, who lived in the shadow of the Special One during his time at Stamford Bridge.
