On The Spot: Europe needs reforms, stat

I think my Dad might actually enjoy this, but I’ll grudgingly support Liverpool in this year’s Champions League final. Yes, those Reds fans will probably be obnoxious on Facebook should their team lift the trophy on May 26, but at least I can continue to hope their top division title drought continues. Because the fact […]

On The Spot: Who’s favored in Russia?

The short answer, despite the usual media hype in England, is: No, not the Three Lions. We’re slightly less than two months out from the opening game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, when hosts Russia play Saudi Arabia on June 14 in Moscow. Ultimately, you’d expect most of the usual suspects to make it […]

Tufts posts wins over Colby, Babson to maintain strong NESCAC position

The Tufts softball team (19–6, 7–2 NESCAC) was victorious in all three of its games against Colby over the weekend, as well as in its lone completed match against Babson on Tuesday. The Jumbos hosted the Beavers (20–10) for a scheduled doubleheader on Tuesday. In the early game, the visitors took the lead on a two-run home run from senior designated player Erica Pavlo […]

On The Spot: Who’s joining Wolves?

Wolves will be playing Premier League soccer next season for the first time since 2012. They clinched their promotion this past weekend. At the end of the day, the league table doesn’t lie when we’re this far into the season. Wolves have a twelve-point lead over their nearest rivals, Cardiff, albeit having played a game more. […]

On the Spot: Chelsea’s loan policy is bad, bad, bad

In a season where Chelsea has been erratic and disappointing to say the least, manager Antonio Conte continues to face pressure for his underperforming team. In return, the manager has complained that he has not received enough support from the board. This, despite spending an inordinate amount of money on two defenders, a striker and two midfielders this […]

On the Spot: Congratulations, Pep

As a bitter Manchester United fan, congratulations, Pep. You’re no longer the noisy neighbor, you’re now just a constant thorn in my side. Chances are, come Saturday afternoon José Mourinho’s Manchester United will lose at the Etihad Stadium and Manchester City will win their third league title in seven years. Pep Guardiola will join an elite group of […]

Tufts improves to 6–2 with wins over Trinity, Brandeis and Bates

The No. 6 Tufts women’s tennis team (6–2) continues to battle its way through NESCAC opponents as it enters the business end of its regular season schedule. The Jumbos recorded a 9–0 rout of the Trinity Bantams on Thursday in their first match following a busy West Coast swing. The team then claimed a pair of 8–1 victories on Saturday, defeating Brandeis and […]

On the Spot: Why mid-season international breaks are stupid

I found myself extremely bored this past weekend, and it’s not just because I stayed in Boston over spring break. It’s because there simply was nothing to watch. I get the need to play international qualifiers during the season rather than stacking them all in one go at the end of the season so as to avoid […]

On The Spot: It’s squeaky bum time

We’re eight games from the end of the Premier League season, and as Manchester City is just about crowned champion already by everyone, it’s less certain for the positions that matter. The top six has almost certainly become five — Arsenal are eight points behind fifth-place Chelsea and 12 behind the last coveted spot of the […]

On the Spot: Arsène, oh Arsène

Arsène, oh Arsène. How times have changed. If the Carabao Cup final from a fortnight ago and last week’s game at the Emirates were anything to go by, it’s almost evident that the baton for the most innovative coach in the Premier League has now most certainly passed on from Arsène Wenger to Pep Guardiola. The 3–0 scoreline was […]
