    Re: THE Replacements.

    I enjoyed the set. Definitely plenty of surprises, but also plenty of the "hits". I agree with Tom, Alex Chilton was amazing. Best song of the set without question.
  3. Re: And we miss Coachella, much like the deserts miss the rain.

    I had a great time this year. I wouldn't put near the top of the list, but it is also nowhere near the bottom. I for one was glad to see the Calvin Harris crowd clear out because I got a great spot...
  4. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Everton is legit. Playing with full confidence now. My top 4 prediction for them is looking better. :)

    Arsenal's woes started with Ramsey going down. He was having a career year. At least he...

    That through pass to Neymar is gorgeous.

    PSG took it to Chelsea at home today. Crushing OG against David Luiz. Ibra went off with what looked to be a hamstring injury, so will have to see how...
  6. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Ah, true. That is a big loss.
  7. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Man U definitely came out strong, have to give them credit. Bayern has the leg up with the away goal, but anything can happen at this point. Atletico is the real deal. I haven't been giving them...
  8. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    After this weekend, I may have to re-think things...Liverpool look unstoppable at the moment. I'm also doing my best to get that horror show I saw at Southampton out of my head. That was atrocious...
  9. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I would laugh for a week straight if it were Sunderland. I think they will be safe in the end, though. They are one game short of Palace, and only 3 points back. They are playing much better under...

  11. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I picked Chelsea at the beginning of the season, so I will stick with that. Will be a fun finish to watch between them and City. I am going out on a limb, and taking Everton over Arsenal for 4th...
  12. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Ha Ha!

    Moyes was put in a no win situation, to be fair. Replacing a living legend, being handed a good, but rapidly aging team, and making very few moves in the off season doesn't bode well.
  13. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    The constant mistakes played right into Chelsea's hands. Early missed passes, and tentative ones at that. No real ambition from the start. Just tentative passing in the midfield. Mourinho is a...

    Indeed. It is nice to see players with dual citizenship choosing the US instead of elsewhere.

    Re: 10 Years and you're still here!

    I joined in 2004, as well. Posted fairly infrequently, but lurked quite a bit. Didn't really start posting more until '05, or '06. Definitely met some amazing people and lifelong friends here!

    Yeah, I'll believe it when i see it. Will be surprised if they go after anyone else in this window. I'd gladly take Grenier. I won't be surprised of De Jong gets forced into playing very soon...

    Yeah, he does look pretty good. Montpellier is already claiming it is a done deal for the summer. We shall see. This summer scares me, big time. Odds are they don't sign Remy on a permanant deal,...
  22. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    This pretty much sums up everything that I feel. It is a shame that Newcastle isn't a big enough club for Cabaye; it should be. I have resigned to the fact that he will be gone this summer. I wish...

    My boys were robbed of a Chiote wonder goal against City. Terrible, terrible call. One of the worst we may see all season.

  28. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Ha Ha, true. To be fair though, it can take a full season for some players to acclimated to the PL, for whatever reason. Soldado is crazy talented, just not clinical at all this season.

    DeFoe to Toronto

    have to give them credit...really making a push.

    Also, WTF are the Spurs doing? Last thing they need is less striking options. They have to bring someone else in now.
