i am a 17 year old sports fan. I have been watching mma, football(soccer) and hockey since i was 5 years old. I am looking forward to working with the other great writters of bleacher report and most importantly eventually writing for my fans and readers.
What would be your ideal, but realistic, signings/sales for the rest of the summer Matt?
And I haven't forgotten the promise of youth articles! I've just been very busy, but finished studies for a period now...
How are you doing? The last post I had from you was before the Bayern flogging. Have you survived? haha
Good suggestions Matt.
The comparison series is going well and people enjoy it. I'll definitely be expanding into different positions...perhaps centre-back will be next!
Super nervous mate. Let's hope I'm still alive on the other side. Visca el Barca!
Haha thanks man. Usually about 10-12, depending on the day and what type of articles. 10 is usually a fairly normal amount for me—it is my job after all I guess haha. Appreciate the support dude and for the message. Feel free to follow on Twitter (@dantalintyre) where I post pretty much all of my content. Thanks man.
Thanks dude, haven't forgotten my promise of a youth article. I'll get one done when I have some time in the next month.
Thanks Matt. I'll try to bring you some more on the youth then ;)
Good to chat with someone who seems an informed reader! Cheers for reading Matt!
Here is my latest piece reviewing Spain vs. Italy: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1216097-spain-vs-italy-ranking-the-5-best-and-worst-players-in-group-cs-opening-match
I was hoping to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks!
Hey Matt! Yes, I saw the Argentina-Brazil match. Best game of the day in my opinion.
I think it also showed how limited and full of holes Argentina is. Messi was superb, but we should be careful not to overlook the problems prevalent in the rest of the team.
Yes, Messi can carry Argentina, but when he doesn't, then what? He shouldn't have to do so much. When he is the biggest creator AND scorer of goals, there is too much expected from him.
Beyond Lio, there is not enough consistency in midfield, the defensive positioning and discipline is nowhere near good enough to win a World Cup, and the keeper problem has still not been solved.
A big win? Yes, of course. Proof that Argentina can become the best in the world? I don't think so. Not by a long shot.
The Euro matches showed that the Group of Death is living up to its name. Any team can progress it seems. Ronaldo will rightly get some flak for being anonymous, but he was not the only star. Nani, RVP, and other stars had awful days.
