    awesome article about the EPL needing more player access (sarcasm). you should stop looking at the EPL through an american lens and think that it should be treated the same way we do things here in 'murica. as usual, your article is incredibly poorly thought out, makes little to no sense, and has been thoroughly ripped apart by commenters who actually have brains in their head and are capable of intelligent thought (a foreign concept, i know). great job. fail.

    Hi Ryan, I am currently in my first year of High School, I was wondering how do you become a writer for Bleacher Report articles. I want to become a Sports Journalist in the future and I want to give it a try. I am a Big Fan of Soccer. Out of all the Writers, your articles are very interesting.

    My question is how do you become a writer for Bleacher Report because I am thinking about my career paths and maybe you could help me out.

    I am looking forward towards your reply.

    alan shearer: "He essentially describes the things that are quite easy to see, offering little of the insight he might have gained from a tremendously successful career on the pitch (and a very short-lived and ill-fated one as a manager)."

    ok, but that doesn't make him "wrong", as the title of the article implies, it just means his analytical skills are lacking.

    adrian chiles: "The Brummie presenter received plenty of criticism during coverage of the 2012 UEFA Super Cup, when he referred to 26-year-old proven goalscorer Radamel Falcao as a great "prospect." He also made a politically incorrect gaffe during coverage of England's World Cup qualifier against Poland, referring to fans of the opposition as "builders."

    again, being un-PC and mis-speaking aren't the same as being "wrong"

    as usual, another shitty list that indicates you don't understand the meanings of the words you're writing about

    in today's article about stars of world cup draws past you write:

    "along with South African songwriter Juanes, who performed his hit "La Camisa Negra." Well, presumably it was a hit somewhere."

    juanes is from colombia, south america.

    in today's article about stars of world cup draws past you write:

    "The draw for USA '94 was held at a Las Vegas convention centre on December 19, 1993. It was conducted by a spritely 58-year-old FIFA general secretary named Sepp Blatter, who was four-and-a-half years from assuming the presidential role.

    The talent drawing the balls included Eusebio, Bobby Charlton, Michel Platini, Marco van Basten, Roger Milla and an MLS goalkeeper named Tony Meola."

    the MLS wasn't in existence until 1996, so no, there was not an MLS goalkeeper named tony meola there. in 1993 it looks like he wasn't even playing professional club football, just for the national team, although i could be wrong about that. i'm not wrong about when the MLS began though. it was founded in 1993, 2 days before the world cup drawing, and tony meola was not a member of the league at that point, no player was. having an agreement to be a part of the league when it got going isn't the same as being a part of a league which didn't exist as of then.
