    Ozil's the replacement for Cesc we've needed these past few seasons, and combined with the blistering starts of Giroud, Ramsey, and Flamini (who has been the other kind of midfielder we've needed too!) I couldn't be happier with our start to the season. I think we should try to do as best we can in the CL and perhaps use the League and FA cups as a chance to rest players, but how well we fare in these next 6 or 7 games should tell us a lot about our title chances and where our priorities later on in the season should lie. And I think I woke up my entire apartment complex with the massive, orgasm-induced scream I let out once Wilshere volleyed home, with his weaker foot no less, against Norwich.

    Happy to wager that you'll end up trophyless again. Top of the table and rest players in the league? Comedy gold.

    "Cups" meaning the League Cup and the FA Cup...

    Anyone watching the WC playoff 2nd legs? The last 10 min of France-Ukraine will be very interesting...

    The second half of Sweden-Portugal was great. The goal celebrations of both Zlatan and Ronaldo were quite terrific as well.

    I'm glad we'll have France in the World Cup, as should be the rest of the world (except for the Ukraine, obviously).

    The US is currently ranked 13th in the world? That can't be right

    You drew with Scotland, a game in which you had less shots then them and looked pretty poor. I see the US ranking drop pretty soon. Englands rank is a fucking joke, England has a GAWD awful team. Names dont make a good team.

    It's right. I think FIFA re-jigged the way the rankings are calculated to place more weight on recent results rather than past performances, which is why teams like Columbia and Belgium are in the Top 10. The US actually had a really, really good year in terms of overall results (the Gold Cup especially, despite the less than stellar competition) and I think that's why they're so high up there.

    The 13th ranking makes sense with the shift in how it's calculated. I know the US has been "kicking ass," they've literally never had a better year, but that's a 20 place jump in 10 months when they didn't have many truly huge wins. Beating mexico at the Azteca lost a lot of its lure when everybody else did it too, and squeezing out a win against Germany's B team hardly puts the US up there with the best in the world . The drubbing against Belgium showed that. I'm just hoping they make it out of the group stage next summer. Anything beyond that is a huge bonus.

    Doesn't look to be too expensive to be honest; the only thing to keep in mind is that these early-year friendlies are normally "B" and "C" teams made up of domestic league players (it's not an "official" FIFA date, so clubs aren't required to release their players if the federation calls them up). I went to one a few years ago against Denmark and it was almost all MLS players, but with the World Cup coming it might be different this time around.

    When I went to the USA vs Guatemala friendly in San Diego, we paid $15 for our tickets, and our seats were right behind the goal.

    Wow. That might be the best game by a single player this season. Easily in contention for goals of the season with the one from like 35/40 yards out. Glad he was my captain on my fantasy team...
