Sergio Ramos Will Get to the Ball Before You Do

Posted on September 10th, by Daryl in Blog. No Comments

We spent a long time talking about Sergio Ramos on the new Total Soccer Show, and how everyone only seems to remember his mistakes. Our basic thesis is that Ramos takes risks and gets to the ball first, but everyone only remembers the rare moments when he misses, because they look like horrible errors. The above video highlights the number of times Ramos gets it right.

Champions League Semi Final Second Leg Reviews

Posted on April 25th, by Daryl in Soccer Podcasts. 1 Comment


We review Chelsea’s incredible 2-2 win Barcelona. This is what the Champions League is supposed to look like. Drama, a red card, Bosingwa at center back, Drogba shooting from the halfway line, Messi losing his temper, this game had it all. It even had a goal from Senor Fernando Torres. We praise Ramires, heckle John Terry and ask … where do Leo Messi and Barcelona go from here?

We also review Bayern Munich’s penalty kick victory over Real Madrid, a game which–any other week–would be the game that has everyone talking.
