Apparently it is possible to have too much success. At least that's the opinion of Vicente del Bosque, who has seen Spanish soccer achieve unprecedented levels of success in recent years. The national team has won the last two European Championships as well as the 2010 World Cup. On the club level, three Spanish teams — Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid — went down to the final weekend before deciding this season's La Liga winner. And all three teams reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, with Real Madrid and Atletico meeting in last month's final.

More than 190 years after they attempted an attack on Baltimore, the British - at least some of them - are planning a figurative one. Spurred by a comment made by advertising executive Bob Leffler in Tuesday's editions of The Sun, some supporters of Manchester United are planning to protest Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer's attempt to buy controlling interest in the most famous soccer team in the world at Leffler's annual Christmas party this...

The Brits were no-shows. A week after suggesting they would disrupt Baltimore marketing maven Bob Leffler's annual holiday party because of his work for Malcolm Glazer, supporters of Manchester United were nowhere to be seen outside City Lights restaurant Thursday night. Leffler, who has a 12-year association with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' owner, last month took over the public relations duties for Glazer's effort to buy a controlling interest in Manchester United. Glazer owns more than 28 percent of the world's most famous soccer team.

WASHINGTON - Malcolm Glazer's contentious takeover of famous English soccer team Manchester United gained an audience with the NFL's finance committee yesterday during ownership meetings. Glazer, who owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and once tried to win an expansion team for Baltimore, must account for Manchester United's announced plans to build a casino and entertainment complex near Old Trafford, its stadium. Although the NFL bans owners from holding stakes in casinos, league spokesman Greg Aiello described the development as "a blip on the radar screen" in the two-day meetings at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

John Irving came to M&T Bank Stadium from his home in New Jersey Saturday to see his favorite soccer team, Tottenham Hotspur, play in person for the first time. But Irving, whose allegiance is derived from the fact his father grew up near the team's base in North London, felt as if he could have been in Liverpool. Red replaced purple as the favorite jersey color for the preseason friendly between the two English Premier League teams. Still, Irving and other Tottenham fans who came from all over the United States and Canada didn't seem to mind being in the minority.

As an 18-year old coming to the United States from England to play college soccer, Darren Eales figured the competition was not going to be as stiff as what he had faced in the motherland. "It's fair to say that when I played 20 years ago, there was a feeling of, 'What do Americans know about soccer?' " said Eales, who played first at West Virginia and later at Brown before playing professionally. "Now there's a real respect for American players. " Eales, director of football administration for Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League, has seen that first-hand.

The past and future for Shane Walker are back home in England. He left there in 2005 to pursue a basketball career in the United States that included playing for two high schools in three years and a college career that began at the University of Maryland and will end next month at Loyola. He will return to London this spring with hopes of playing for the host country in the Olympics this summer. It is the present that consumes Walker, a 6-foot-10, 222-pound forward who is the only senior who starts and plays regularly for the Greyhounds (18-5, 11-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference)

The clubs were the same, as were many of the players. The stadium was stuffed with supporters in Manchester United's red and FC Barcelona's claret and blue. But the trophy was not for winning the European Champions League. Rather, NBA star Kobe Bryant presented a sponsor's trinket to defender Nemanja Vidic to mark United's 2-1 victory in a friendly Saturday before an announced 81,807 at FedEx Field — a record crowd for a soccer match in the Washington area. The outcome won't soften the disappointment of losing to the Catalan club in the prestigious continental final in May at Wembley Stadium but will provide a dose of gratification heading into the English Premier League season in two weeks.
