Dog Days: Breaking Down the Cleveland Browns

Cleveland, Ohio. Nestled on the shores of Lake Erie, it is home to harsh winters, the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, the reigning NBA Champion Cavaliers, the reigning American League Champions, Cleveland Indians and the currently 0-12 Cleveland Browns. That’s right, you read that correctly, 0-12. It’s early December and the Browns’ win column still shows a glaring 0. A big part of me feels sorry for the franchise,…

The Clasico. Refs play a part; Ramos breaks opposition hearts, again

Let’s get right into it; just about the biggest sporting event on planet earth, the first Clasico of the season between Barcelona and Real Madrid has just ended today with a 1-1 tie.  We had Luis Suarez scoring an early second half header off of a set piece for Barca, and Sergio Ramos being the clutch man he is, scoring a header as well in the 90th minute to tie…

Looking for a new home

Branislava Ivanovic, Chelsea-Ivanovic has been one of the most heavily relied upon right backs in the world for the last eight years, but it looks like his days are numbered in London. Due to a formation change under new boss Antonio Conte, Ivanovic has not seen much of the pitch in the last two months. Even though he lacks the speed he once had, Ivanovic is still a serviceable back…

Goodbye Stevie G, the most complete midfielder of our generation

  Steven Gerrard has just retired, and if you never hated Liverpool, this should be a gloomy day for you.  They don’t really make’em like Stevie G anymore.  He had everything you could ever ask out of a midfielder, not to mention his loyalty and leadership.  Other names that come to mind are Iniesta, Xavi, and Paul Scholes to name a few, but it is very difficult to find another…

Another major tournament for Serbia’s youth

  Serbia is off to the U-21 Euros which will be held in Poland in 2017. The Young Eagles continue Serbia’s impressive run at the U-21 level, as they have qualified for six of the last eight Euros to take place. It was a hard fought battle through two legs versus a solid Norwegian side that gave Serbia all that they can handle in the two matches. Serbia ended up…

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Oklahoma City Thunder

NBA rapid fire

  NBA rapid fire. 30 teams, quick predictions. Let’s gooo! Atlanta Hawks-if they can get the Howard of old, Hawks could be a dangerous team in the east. Bench play will be crucial throughout the season.   Boston Celtics-the combination of Thomas and Horford will work out great for the Celtics. Look out for rookie Jaylen Brown, who could have a great first season in Boston.   Brooklyn Nets-Brook Lopez…

Serbs in the NBA: Jokic to breakout in a big way

Long gone are the days when Divac and Stojakovic would represent Serbia at the highest level of basketball in the NBA. Since their retirements, Serbia has struggled putting out talent that could compete with the best basketball players from around the world.   To be fair, Nenad Krstic did have a pretty solid NBA career that lasted seven years.  He was a pretty big piece when he played for the…

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns

NBA Preview: Will the Timberwolves surprise this season?

The NBA season is only two weeks away and a lot has changed this off-season. Kevin Durant has made the Golden State Warriors even better, but it came at a price because he has now become the villain in Oklahoma City. The Boston Celtics added Al Horford as they continue their climb to the top of the East, while the Chicago Bulls added Dwyane Wade along with Rajon Rondo in…

Serbia v Republic of Ireland - FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier

Strikers need their confidence back

Serbia will get its World Cup qualifying campaign back on track tomorrow as they take on minnows Moldova and then Austria on Sunday. In Serbia’s first match, they only managed a tie versus a solid, but very defensively minded Republic of Ireland side.   Anything but the full three points versus Moldova tomorrow will be a huge letdown.   Will the strikers finally come back to life? Aleksandar Mitrovic, Nikola…

FK Cukaricki: from one of the best to the worst

Since FK Cukaricki’s promotion back to the top flight in the 2013-2014 season, they have been nothing short of spectacular. Unlike many of the teams in the Serbian league, Cukaricki plays wide open football. They do not sit back against the best teams and wait for their chance to score; they attack from the opening to the last minute and try to expose weaknesses.   This season has been a…
