My name is Vlad Bouchouev and I attend Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. In a nutshell, I’m a soccer junkie. I write about soccer for Carnegie Mellon’s student-run newspaper, The Tartan, as well as for the online blog Match Fit USA. I have played soccer forever and I like to think I have a thorough understanding of the game.
The purpose of this blog is to offer my views about the world of football, as well as explore the intricacies of the sport that a “regular” soccer fan may sometimes overlook.
The name of this blog (“Soccer Spieler”) is a play on words that combines the English word “spiel” (definition: speak at great length) and the German word “spieler” (definition: player).
