Of Course He FJM’d Something

So this was super low-hanging fruit. So much so that I really considered not doing it. Instead I was going to FJM the comments on the same piece, because that’s even lower-hanging fruit. But this piece from October sent the Soccerlytics world into a shit fit, which is about the easiest thing in the world […]

I have a lot of friends as a result of our communal comment-sectioning in David Hirshey’s columns on Deadspin — and then the ‘stache ended up being one of the groomsmen in my wedding some years later. UFers have an almost […]

L’Affaire Valbuena

Although the story broke a while ago, everyone is still talking about “L’Affaire Valbuena.” Need to catch up? Confused from the start? Simply here for the titillation? Let’s run through things so we’re all on the same page. Back in June 2015 as Les Bleus were preparing for friendlies against Belgium and Albania, rumors began […]

The Good, The Bad, The WTF

Let’s not kid ourselves. We don’t really get to do these anymore. As such, I am dispensing with any notion that we might present a “good” or “bad” here and going straight to the WTF. That is what you want, right? Actually, I don’t care. Here we go. Welcome to Unprofessional Foul’s new venture, the […]



DAY 5 BOOTROOM: Finally, Group G Is Here!

Effing finally. The day we’ve all been waiting for (and dreading) has arrived. Someone may jump in with a liveblog, but something tells me the whole UF crew will want to focus on watching, not writing, during the USMNT ma...

DAY 3 BOOTROOM: In Which JamesT’s Nightmare Begins

This should be interesting. Our first (and I think only) four-game day in this World Cup. Since Orr took care of the first two games with his liveblogs, it’s only fair that he have the time to drink heavily during our fir...

World Cup Liveblog: Uruguay v. Costa Rica

90I hope the referee in for this match speak Spanish. CONMEBOL meets CONCACAF for the first time in this tournament as two time World Cup and current Copa America champions take on… Costa Rica. Don’t let a relative ...

Save the drama for Valderrama.

World Cup Liveblog: Colombia v. Greece

Day three of the 2014 World Cup kicks off with match featuring two sides which couldn’t be more dissimilar. High-flying Colombia, a dark horse for many before losing Falcao, play an aggressive, attacking style but have se...

DAY 2 BOOTROOM: De Jong and De Restless

That had to hurt… Now that Precious Roy has his first liveblog out of his system, he’s heading to the pub to get lots of pints in his system. With that in mind, we’re opening up the ORIGINAL NEVER TO BE TRULY ...
