With the world’s eyes turning to Brazil for this week’s World Cup draw, we’ll be discussing whether the country will in fact be ready to host 32 teams once next Summer comes round. After a series of missed deadlines, a tragic disaster at the stadium that’s due to host the opening match of the tournament, and the country attempting to construct more stadiums than it needs to, how much of a realistic possibility is it that everything won’t be completed in time?
Moving back across the Atlantic, we’ll also be profiling Fulham’s new boss (and his somewhat animalistic instincts), take a look at what has been dubbed the Football League’s “Black Monday”, and also check in on Serie A to see why the wheels are starting to come off for Roma, and how 12,000 school children have been putting Juventus’ ultras to shame.
This week’s feature interview is with sports and music writer, and AFR contributor, Aniefiok Ekpoudom. He’ll be chatting to us about the curious case of Southampton’s Gaston Ramirez, and telling us why a man who we’ll most likely see playing for Uruguay next Summer at the World Cup just can’t get a start in the Premier League. Aniefiok also has his own blog, which you can check out here.
Our favourite #whereisfootball photo this week is courtesy of Saf Hossain, whose sunset shot taken at Leyton Orient’s Brisbane Road will be adorning our cover art this week.
