Intelligent Soccer Journalism

My wife would probably call the title an oxymoron, or worse, but I am always pleased when Frank Dell’Apa gets to write a column. Now with ESPNSoccernet (previously writing only for the Boston Globe), Frank understands both soccer and writing.  A real pleasure to read, at least for me.

I have also enjoyed Center Line Soccer in San Jose for great coverage of the NewQuakes. While maybe not as analytical as Dell’Apa, Jay Hipps and the rest do real coverage that years ago was done by major metropolitan dailies. SF Chron take notice, you are nowhere when it comes to covering this team. Although I would give an adequate grade to the SJ Merc News, as Ann Killion and others have done more than just report the scoreline.

Anyway, because of the internet, I can follow soccer without needing to go the a big newstand for the various papers. And thanks to RSS feeds, I can have it centralized and fed to me daily.
