OK guys, tell me a site that contains only football news, but is better and more professional than this utter shite of a site.

Not that I am a Real Madrid fan and I see day in day out hate storm on Ronaldo and Real Madrid, but really their articles are biased, childish, and actually they look as they were written by 6 year old fan boys

Probably not going to find one. Maybe sky sports?

I mean Goal usually just pieces together articles from other sites with poor sources. They are the melting pot of garbage rumours.

I usually just stick to the main men in GL, they sort it out in the transfers thread for me Proud

Because the articles are indeed written by 6 year old fans. There was a report the other day discussing how the abuse interns with the work load and you can see that over the years the majority of their quality reporters just disappeared. What sucks though is that the quality void previously filled by old goal.com was never filled so all you can do is scrap online for an article here and a report there..

Have you seen our cars?



a best friend who stabbed me in the back at the beginning of high school is now an editor for goal; my distaste for Goal is personal

I usually just glance over /r/soccer

I stopped visiting goal.com years ago. Just like you, I think it's filled with chronically angry and impolite members and their articles are written by immature and impartial fans. Basically, they steal other articles from other websites and piece them together.

They don't have any connections or sources, they're basically a fansite pretending to be professionals.

The article you attached to your post about Messi's meltdown is the definition of click-bait. Die-hard Messi and Ronaldo fans will click on it by the thousands and scroll down without reading it to have a pointless fight in the comment section. Ultimately, that's exactly what Goal wants; thousands of clicks and hundreds of comments to bring the silver and keep on climbing the Google search ladder. As for the content? Nobody is really reading it, especially their brainless members. So it's really a win-win for them.

To answer your question; and since you're a Real Madrid fan, I recommend Marca. They used to be a pathetic, laughable and unreliable news outlet, but ever since they snatched Cope's journalists, their news and transfer rumors related to Real Madrid have been quite accurate. However, if you want a whole community dedicated to Real Madrid, you can check out Managing Madrid.

Goal.com is still a thing? I haven't been back there since the forums closed and we all moved to GoalLegacy.

Sky Sports seemed alright when I used to browse them back in the day, though back then the EPL was at the height of its power so their articles were a bit Premfacy, that will probably have changed in the past 5 years.

What about Bleacher Report? I haven't been there in years either but when I used it I thought it seemed alright, it was also good for keeping track of news of other sports since they cover every major sport. There was this one writer who supported Arsenal who was annoying though.

Honestly, the only football related sites I go on these days are Goallegacy and Barcaforum, which aren't even news sites but message boards. I just got tired of the shit that news sites would post in an effort to get clicks, especially during the transfer season.

Football-italia.net for any Italian related news, analysis etc. Dont know anything else for other leagues

Bleacher report is also pretty good.

I like both Cope (www.cope.es) and El Confidencial (www.elconfidencial.com). Both are newspapers but their sports sections are good. Look for deportes section in both. They are in Spanish, I'm not sure if they have English versions of articles like Marca does.

I could sit on my keyboard and spill a better article than those on Goal.

No disrespect to Barca fans but 2-3 writers on Goal seem like butthurt and childish Barca fans, whom if Barca wins you get 20 articles on how Messi passed a through ball to Suarez, 6 of them being that Ronaldo won't do that because he is selfish, 7 of them being why this Barca is better than last season, and 9 of them are why Real Madrid will never reach that level.

I know they are Barca fans, but they are "professional" reporters and need to act like it.

I would also be angry if it happened the other way around, I am looking for a site with less biased articles and more professional reviews, analytics and reliable exclusives.
