The Football Blogby danny sankar
Welcome to Eleven Updates – a monthly blog dedicated to happenings around planet football. Expect updates every month of the year from February to December, posted on or around the 11th. European club football takes centre stage most months, however also expect paragraphs about international football, including World Cup Qualifying, Continental Tournaments and the Confederations Cup. In addition, regular updates from the MLS are featured, as well as relevant or interesting stories from all around the globe.
