Sport has never been just about playing; it's also about spectating. The start-up of the football season will see many of us yet again travel all over the country (and Europe) in support of our clubs - and we love it. If we didn't have these beautifully constructed arenas designed specifically to accommodate our live viewing experience, sport simply wouldn't be the same...

On Wednesday FC Barcelona confirmed the 2016 Joan Gamper Trophy will be played on 10th August against Italian club Sampdoria. As usual this annual competition is to be played at Barça's Camp Nou stadium and although the match isn't the most important in Barcelona's calendar, it does give supporters a chance to see the players before the real work gets underway.

That big kick off may seem an eternity away - and it is, in all honesty. But while you're sunning yourself up on holiday or confused about what to do on the weekends now there's no Soccer Saturday to keep you occupied, just remember that as a football fan - transfer speculation is a necessary part of the ride.

Ivan Rakitic Has Proven Himself a Worthy Successor to King Xavi

The rationale behind Rakitic's purchase was simple; he was to provide the work-rate and dynamism not possible for the aging, battle-hardened limbs of Xavi. It has certainly worked too.

Crisis Averted: Barcelona Are Back to Their Brilliant Best Ahead of City Clash

Matt Gault | Posted 20.04.2015 | UK Sport

The players are exhibiting a freedom and style to their play which had been alarmingly truant during the ill-fated spell of Gerardo Martino. Much to City's angst and trepidation, Barcelona have rediscovered that way of winning which makes racking off five or six goals on an afternoon's work curiously insouciant.

Barca are the bookies' favourites for the tie by some margin, but they may have it wrong. City have had their slump, this is the resurgence. Is it time for them to finally explode onto the European stage? Don't bet against it.

Sport's Symbolic Stand

Racism, like a cockroach, has a disappointing tendency not to die. It's bad enough with one case occurring but when two happen in a week, you'd better call the exterminators. Thankfully there are those willing to take a stand; for every imbecilic action there is an opposite reaction.

How Barcelona Can Get Neymar, Messi and Fernando Torres To Be A Success

With Neymar going to Barcelona it brings some unanswered questions on just how manager Tito Vilanova will get the best out of Messi, Neymar, Iniesta, Pedro, Sanchez, Villa (if he is still there) and Tello, he can't play all of them... so what does he do?

Wayne Tooney? Perhaps Not

As a Newcastle fan, I'm quite used to hearing ridiculous things - usually from our own supporters. But this one really tops the lot. Sports Direct News (yes that's actually a thing) has claimed that "low-level" talks have taken place between the Magpies and Wayne Rooney's agent, although an official offer is yet to be lodged. Go figure.

Mongols, Global Conquest and the Champions League

The other night, the light-bulb came on when I watched Real Madrid and then Barcelona being dismantled by German teams on successive evenings. The excitement was partly about the football itself, but mainly at the way two powerhouses of European football were swept away with barely a whimper. It was the same with the Mongols. The great empires of China and Persia went up in a puff of smoke, demolished without throwing a punch in self-defence.

Who knows what butterfly effect would have occurred had Koscielny and Szczesny not had that last minute moment to forget? Wenger will definitely have nightmares thinking about that as the 2010/2011 season was Arsenal's best chance of ending their trophy drought.

Atlético Thrash Sevilla and Dare to Dream of Toppling Real

It says a lot about the duopoly in Spanish football that the three point gap between Barcelona and Atlético is rarely mentioned, but that might change if Simeone ends the derby curse and Atleti finally beat Real Madrid. Now, for once, they have a chance of doing so.

When Benzema is on form, there is no doubt that Madrid play better. Higuaín may have a superior goals-to-game ratio but the Frenchman offers much more and, if given a run of games, will no doubt follow it with a run of goals.
