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

    Showing what it means to be a clinical striker...pure brilliance.
  2. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Holly Hell, my team sucks balls...2-1 loss to Watford. Why do I put myself through this every season?
  3. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    This could shape up to be one of the best group stages in recent CL years. Very even groups, pretty much all around. Agreed, Chelsea do get a fairly easy path, but most of the other groups are very...

    Re: True Detective

    Just really not good. Been a while since HBO has misfired on a series/season this badly. The show was trying too hard all season. I do enjoy the concept; hopefully they can get it right if a 3rd...
  5. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    True, although I see Stoke having a solid season. Hughes has them going in the right direction.
  6. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Man, I would love for you to be right about my Newcastle!
  7. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    Very bad piece of business, for sure. He should fit in well at PSG, though.

    Would love to see Benzema for your boys, but I still like their chances regardless. Theo playing more up the middle is...

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

    Alright, it is PL prediction time. Last season, I got all the top four right in order (Chelsea, City, Arsenal, Man U), but failed for the bottom 4 with only getting Burnley correct (my prediction...

    This will be the first Coachella I am choosing to miss since 2004 (I missed 2010 due to other reasons). My wedding is in early May, and we are paying for everything ourselves, so priorities and all....
  13. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    No thanks. It is pretty ridiculous that rumor ever get any sort of traction. I only hope the Goblin King (aka Tony Pulis) does not take over. I can only handle so much hoof ball.

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

    My boys take out Everton (sorry, Chris) and now the rumors are swirling about Pardew heading to Palace. Makes perfect sense for him, and I wouldn't mind seeing him go. He is very limited as a...
  16. 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.
  17. 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...

    I was at the game, as well. I asked one of my friends who watched and he said it was complete BS.
  21. 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...
  22. 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.

  26. 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...
  27. 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.
  28. 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
  29. 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.
  30. 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.
  31. 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...
  32. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

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

    From what I have read, yes.

  34. 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,...
  35. 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...
  36. 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...
  37. 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...
  38. 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.
  39. 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,...

  41. 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,...
  42. 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...
  43. 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...

  45. 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. ...

  47. 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),...
  48. 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.
  49. 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.
