European World Cup Qualifiers: What We Learned

Sep 07, 2016 by Alex Baker

World Cup qualification for the UEFA region got underway this weekend with the continent’s top teams back in action vying for a place at Russia 2018. Here are some of the key takeaways from the weekend’s qualifiers.

England left it late but got it done

It took until the fifth moment of extra time for the breakthrough to come but ultimately, Sam Allardyce got his tenure as England manager underway with a win against 10-man Slovakia. In truth, the Three Lions had been dominant throughout, maintaining a majority of possession and putting up 20 shots against a defensive Slovakian side that managed just a single off-target shot.

Wayne Rooney impressed in a deeper-lying midfield role but Allardyce will likely be concerned about his team taking so long to... Read More

European World Cup Qualifiers this Weekend

Sep 02, 2016 by Alex Baker

UEFA World Cup qualifiers are back underway on Sunday and Monday as the continent’s best get back on the road to Russia 2018.

Here are three must-see matches to catch over the three-day weekend.

Slovakia vs. England

Sam Allardyce’s first competitive fixture in charge of England will see the Three Lions taking on Slovakia Saturday. These two teams actually met at Euro 2016 earlier this summer in a group stage encounter that ended in a scoreless draw.

This time around, Allardyce will be looking for more production out of his squad, particularly in the goals department, as he looks to get his career as England manager off on the right foot. That could mean a start for Raheem Sterling who has started the Premier League season off in... Read More

WATCH: Danny Trejo Rips Apart Cable TV Model in New Sling TV Ads

Aug 30, 2016 by Glenn Eisen

If you’ve ever been a traditional pay-TV customer, you’re likely familiar with the frustration of unexplainable charges and increases to your cable bill, sitting for hours on hold with customer service and a general distrust of the cable company. And some days, you wish you could send someone to tell the cable company exactly how you feel.

We understand your feelings, which is why we created Sling TV with no long-term contracts, customizable channels and the same low price every month. That’s also why we recruited “The Authority on Bad” himself – Danny Trejo –to tell the cable companies that customers have had it with their strong-arm tactics.

While you might not know Danny’s name (we’ll wait while you Google him), you’ll certainly recognize him from the tough characters... Read More
