    Wow, Man U is about to play Zenit St. Petersburg on Fox Soccer Channel in the UEFA Super Cup. And the lineup has all of Man U's stars on the pitch!

    This wasn't on my radar at all but a nice suprise on a lazy friday afternoon.

    On a side note; I love how these dumb-shit Zenit owners tried to use Ashavin as a cash-cow but got too greedy with the asking price so no deal was struck. Ashavin's stock won't get higher than it was after the Euros... dumb, greedy russians. If they don't lower the price in the next few days they risk losing even more if his form slips before the next transfer window.

    Vidic scored from about 8 yards.

    Scholes is a naughty boy... gave me one hell of a scare though.

    soccer fans tend to be a bit condescending. see "Americans have short attention spans" etc.

    Soccer does seem exciting to brits because the only thing they have to compare it to is cricket.

    And rugby. Check yourself.

    And Americans do have short attention spans in their sports. I happen to enjoy the flow of play in the beautiful game. Much prefer it to running into eachother one time every 30 seconds.

    Thief, how about those gunners?

    This is why I support and love watching Arsenal. Brilliant football today.

    The Newcastle forward Guiterez reminds me of Robert Pires. He isn't very graceful but extreemly confident on the ball, always attacking the defense keeping them on their heels. He looks like a good one for you.

    Shocking start by my boys (Everton)with a 3-0 defeat at home to the fish fuckers (as Portsmouth are called around these parts). Third from bottom, and we drew Standard Liege in the UEFA Cup (the only team we wanted to avoid).

    Yikes. Portsmouth has looked poor thus far too. Well, at least the stick-man didn't net on you...

    Thought this was interesting so it was hauled in here, friendly waters and all:

    IMO
    Keeper: Buffon (Castillas is a REALLY close second)
    Defense: Alves, Materazzi, Terry, Sergio Ramos (terry will allow ramos to get forward)
    Mid: Ronanldo, Kaka, Fabs, Gerrard (although gerrard is kinda getting wasted as a holding mid and I'm not sure if Fabs can play on the wing)
    Forwards: Torres, Messi (but you couldn't go wrong with Drogs, Zlatan, Van Nist, or Villa)

    I'll probably change this many times in the near future, especially the midfield.

    I'm not sure what that is? A fantasy team of European only players?

    I'd have the 2nd choice Portuguese keeper - purely because his name is Quim.

    On a more serious note, any team would have to have Senna in. He dominated Euro 2008.

    What a terrible display from my boys. Arsenal was in the Magpie half all day. It was evident that Milner was missed in the midfield. Some VERY questionable calls that went Arsenal's way, but it wouldn't have made a difference in the outcome. Difference was definitely in the midfield. Newcastle could not sustain any attack. The defense was a sitting duck.

    Everton...yikes. Still early, but they made Pompey look world class.

    Soccer fans can be condescending? Do you think that really came first or is it a defensive reaction action the typically ignorant American sports fans attitude towards soccer?

    I personally don't think that there is any doubt that Americans have short attention spans.

    Great to see Cesc back, his influence on the team is immense.....hopefully Van Persie isn't out for the season already after the ankle injury. I cringe every time he's involved in a tackle.

    Chelsea are still top

    West Ham had a good win yesterday too.

    I think when we get robinho we'll be a much better side, we got too many in midfield but we need a striker.

    can I get a whoop whoop US footie fans?

    stop calling it soccer - it's football FFS m8

    it's exciting because its the 'beautiful' game. So much skill, controlling the ball with your feet is difficult plus the game flows really fast. Basketball is ok, but it's so end to end there's no tension. Baseball is alright, but again. The older I get the more I could see myself liking baseball in the same way I like cricket. I don't know if Americans know this, but the rule is if you go to a live cricket match, you don't watch the match, you just play drinking games. Going to watch cricket is basically a big piss up, fall asleep and someone has won/lost.

    American Football I don't really get - bit like rugby except, again, you keep stopping and starting, too many advertisements, shoulders pads and helmets. It's a bit too much.

    Hockey is alright, hoever you can hardly see the puck. It's hard to know what the hell is going on.

    The thing with soccer/football is, it's the tribal mentality. It's the singing, the lighting flares, the rucks with other supporters, the insulting chants. Soccer has everything. Plus people literally worship football over the world. If you go Argentina and say soccer is crap, they'll arrest you.

    The main thing is, Americans want to sit down and watch their sport whereas in soccer everyone wants to stand up and scream. I've heard that American don't actually love their sports that they have as well, they just love betting and the whole hot dogs and live game experience and the wedding proposals at half time and shit like that. I don't think they actually love the sports.

    Sorry if that's unclear but that's the only way I can describe it.

    stop saying magpies! it's just a nickname! We don't call our teams by their nicknames like the Coventry Thundercats or whatever. It's really cheesey! That's what's so unappealing about American sports, it's a bit fromage, a bit WWE. Like, basketball could be a complete fix, how are you supposed to take a sports seriously when some of the teams are wandering around with cartoons bulls and dragons and shit on their jerseys? It's just a gimmick.
    American sports are a bit too 'computer game'. Funny to watch but you can't take them seriously.

    You Americans need to keep your eye on the transfer deadline

    Man City have put in bids for Robinho and Berbatov! It's fucking crazy, like the footballers are texting the news channels on what's real and what's made up rumours!

    This may come as a surprise but we do have internet access here in the states.

    *Update* Robinho has signed for Man City!! It's awesome that Calderon totally snubbed Chealsea.. HA!

    Roman Pavlyuchenko to Spurs. Louis Saha to Everton, looking forward to watching him pair with Yakubu (if Saha can stay healthy).
