This week I wrote an article for World Soccer Talk on Freddy Adu after speaking with Finland soccer blogger Rich over at Escape to Suomi. A lot of good stuff from that including Adu being banished to the reserve side of KuPS.
On Monday I was on Yorkshire Radio talking about Major League Soccer and the Hudson River/New York City Derby, Andrea Pirlo and some transfers. It was a great time and I may be back on there some more in the coming weeks. Hopefully my schedule will allow that to happen.
On Sunday I made a chapter of my upcoming book, Soccer Travels, available for free. Actually it was a bonus chapter that may or may not appear in the book proper as more material will make it on to this blog. I am still hard at work finalizing the book as I hope it will take the reader to all the games, cities and stadiums I have chosen to write about. From Korea to England, Italy to Hungary, there will be something for every football fan; I hope.
In addition, I hope this is the first of a few Soccer Travels books, but we shall see. I will be making a second chapter available for a limited time in the coming days, possibly on another blog site that is soccer specific. But more on that later.
Finally, today is the semi-finals for the Women’s World Cup. The ladies have inspired me to get out and watch a little bit of women’s football here in the UK for the first time. It looks like I’ll be heading out to watch Manchester City’s women take on Birmingham City in about a week. I’m looking forward to that. Perhaps a new Soccer Travels chapter.
