Duncan Robinson: From the NESCAC to the NBA bubble

Forget the “one-and-done” stereotype so typical when imagining the path talented teenagers take from high school to the NBA. The Eastern Conference semifinals matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat should aid in dismissing such conceptions. Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, a lanky teenager at 18 playing in the Greek second division, was plucked […]

The Little Londoner: West Ham’s hollow stadium

A huge stadium was left in prime real estate after the 2012 London Olympics. As John Oliver will tell you, it’s all fun and games until you only use your multi-billion dollar stadium for three weeks.  Previously, West Ham had called the Boleyn Ground home for over a hundred years. Though it ebbed between periods […]

The Anti-Bostonian Redux: Boston-Gronk party down in Tampa

Gronkshell warning! This occasion calls for a resurrection of an old friend, a jazzed-up and jealous New York sports fan, called “The Anti-Bostonian.” For one, it is rather difficult for me to continue exploring the world of English football to sufficiently fill more columns for “The Little Londoner.” More than anything, however, the opportunity to […]

Little Londoner: A mini-history of Liverpool-City

A HISTORY: Liverpool vs. Manchester City. Man City is the runaway winner of the Premier League, and Liverpool cannot buy a solid defense — aside from big Virgil Van Dijk. Expect a heaping of goals with a side of heartbreak.  The Day: April 4, 2018. The Time: 2:45, EST. The Location: Medford, Mass (or: Liverpool, […]

The Little Londoner: COVID-19 and English football

This is a column that no one wants to write — my hand is almost forced simply due to the utter lack of content. However, a bevy of swirling topics of conversation looms in a football world that seems to have no long term answers to (or any lasting longer than a week).  Consider this […]

The Little Londoner: On fan abuse

Second division British football can be an absolute pressure cooker for players: unreasonable expectations and petty howl after howl litter the drunken crowds, and no player’s celebrity can exempt him from taking a strong verbal lashing. Nestled in the corner of Queen Park’s Rangers Loftus Road stadium on a balmy Tuesday evening were the dueling […]

The Little Londoner: Manchester United’s American problem

Peppering over a grim 0–0 scoreline on a familiar gray evening in Manchester was a cantankerous sea of red fans. Instead of being ready to stand and cheer, however, they were ready to stand and walk out.  Many of the scarves were not in the typical maroon red but instead a green and yellow, the […]

The Little Londoner: On Acclimating to London

Groveling over an exhilarating final 10 minutes during the Arsenal-Chelsea fixture on Jan. 21 in London pub The Fountain Abbey, I suddenly found myself in the middle of Serbia. Not literally, unfortunately, but I had indeed spiritually landed there from a tale spun by a drunken web. The spider responsible? A cheery bloke from the […]

Schmuck of the Week: Boomer watch in Italy

Here we have a tale ripe for the current “OK Boomer” moment we find ourselves in.  An old, surly and impatient chairman demands his team to go on a week-long retreat in the team’s practice facility to improve performance. An archaic practice in Italian football known as ritiro, this practice calls for players to remain […]

Schmuck of the Week: A Myles Garrett take you might not expect

Who knew a trip to the barbershop could be so disheartening. Well, I must qualify this by saying that it is not a reflection of the barbershop itself but a cliché staple of barbershops that reminds me just how different the Tufts University realm can be from city life. Settling into the chair with my […]
