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

    That is big, as Arsenal has been notorious for having multiple nagging injury concerns over the years. Hamstring pulls, etc.
  2. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Yeah, just read about it. "Failed" medical can mean so many things. He probably showed up out of shape. I am curious now ff Newcastle will submit an offer. I will say that when he was on the...
  3. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Think Arteta will be taking a backseat?
  4. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    From what I have read, yes.

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

    Welcome!

    Sanchez is definitely a great signing for Arsenal. If they play 2 strikers (or Sanchez just behind), that will free up Giroud to poach, as Alexis is much better at creating his own shot,...
  6. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Haven't seen anything official yet on it, but would be a solid move for Liverpool. Wish Newcastle could have done more to keep him, but I can't complain about the moves they have made thus far. I...
  7. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Ha, indeed. Debuchy should be a solid fit for Arsenal. When he first came on board, he tended to get a bit too forward and realized, rather quickly, how much faster the wingers are in the PL. He...
  8. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I can't believe it...my team has actually signed players, and good ones at that. Siem de Jong, Remy Cabella, Daryl Janmaat...I fear I am going to wake up and realize I am just living a Football...
  9. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Great signing. Think he fits in perfectly there.

    Now, hopefully this means my Newcastle can re-open the pursuit to bring Loic Remy back. He most likely won't be targeted by Arsenal now.
  10. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I think Zusi had a terrible WC. Other than his corner to Brooks...I saw nothing that impressed me. He didn't do well at holding the ball up on the flanks, and very little to any positive runs with,...
  11. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I see what you did there...
  12. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I was pretty surprised to see Costa back in the starting lineup again for Spain. Would have rather seen them go with a false 9 up top, and attack with more mids. That being said, Chile earned it,...
  13. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    So far, this WC has not disappointed. Only one real "snoozer" of a match, IMO (Iran v Nigeria). Love the fight of the Aussies, but glad to see Netherlands take another 3 points. Been a fan of...
  14. Re: THE GAMING HARDWARE THREAD: PS4 - WII U - XBone - PS3 - 360 - WII

    AC II to me is still the best one. Huge leap forward from the first game, and I think it had the best story line. The "sequels" that followed were alright, following the story to its conclusion. I...
  15. Re: It Rubs The Lotion On Its Skin: A Thread About Dating

    I had good luck with eHarmony...that is where Alicia and I met. :)

    I did a trial of match.com prior to joining eHarmony, but didn't think it did a good job of finding the best matches.
  16. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I'm down for that.

    I actually am giving the US more of a shot. I am not sold on Portugal making it through. The key is the US MUST get 3 points from Ghana, and hopefully have a good GD margin. ...
  17. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I spent the CL final In Portland watching it here.

    Had a blast. For those that haven't been there, next time you are in Portland, definitely go.
  18. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I will give credit to Rimando; he has really come on the last year, or so. Definitely deserving of the 3rd spot.

    I imagine with no LD, we will see more of a single striker formation (Altidore),...
  19. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Yeah, never understood Gunz's dislike of Howard. He is still the #1 keeper for the US.
  20. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Wow...NO Landon Donovan in the final 23. I am very surprised, and a bit disappointed. Feel he deserved to be there. Clearly Klinnsmann was never a fan.

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

    I think if Martinez leaves, he is Chelsea bound. Fits well in Mourinho's system, and Oscar is probably on the outs there.
  26. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Oh, Liverpool...

    Wow. I will admit to being surprised. Thought it would be a Real v Chelsea final.

    I will be rooting for the Atletico "upset" in the final.

    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.
  33. 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...
  34. 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...
  35. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

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

    Ah, true. That is a big loss.
  37. 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...
  38. 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...
  39. 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...

  41. 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...
  42. 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.
  43. 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.

    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...
