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

    I caught the replay. Great match to watch. Pretty open the entire time with two very evenly matched teams. Barca does have some issues at keeper, though.
  2. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I would normally agree, if not sooner. Issue of course is Mike Ashley; he is all about his money/business. If he sacks Pardew, he stands to lose quite a lot of money due to the remaining contract...

    That's what happens when you lose your only decent QB to a season ending injury.

    Re: NFL Time

    I was at the game, as well. I asked one of my friends who watched and he said it was complete BS.
  6. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Yeah, he definitely is. After last season he insisted they needed more players, and he got them (I would argue, and I think most agree that they still needed another striker and a CB). If they...
  7. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I can see them battling in the lower tier, yes. I do think they survive, though. I can see Pardew getting sacked prior to that, of course.

    Issue the De Jong injury creates is the 4-2-3-1...

    Re: True Blood

    The final season. while not being great, was nowhere near its worst (that being the "Terry being chased by a smoke monster" season). The first season and the 2nd are the best ones for me.

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

    The guy is crazy talented. So is Suarez. Teams have to decide if those players are worth the distractions, or not. I don't think Mario is, but if he DOES behave, a smart move for the Reds. Some...
  12. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Smacks of some desperation from Liverpool. I've never thought Balotelli was worth all the headaches.
  13. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Ok, prediction time. Season starts on Saturday. Here are my table picks...what are yours?:


    1. Chelsea
    2. Man City
    3. Arsenal
    4. Manchester United
    5. Everton
    6. Liverpool
    7. Tottenham
  14. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Nice, happy for Everton and Lukaku. He is where he is wanted, and he has proven he can flourish in Martinez's system.
  15. 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.
  16. 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...

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

    From what I have read, yes.

  19. 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,...
  20. 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...
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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.
  24. 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,...
  25. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    I see what you did there...
  26. 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,...
  27. 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...
  28. 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...

    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.
  30. 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. ...

    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.
  32. 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),...
  33. 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.
  34. 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.

  39. 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.

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