    Why don’t you include the Mexican League games in your weekend television list?

    I don’t get Setanta or Gol TV on my Comcast. But I do get all kinds of Mexican League games on several different channels.

    Is there some reason you would avoid these? Do you not have respect for the Mexican game or something?

    The reason I visit this site is because there isn’t any Mexican league propaganda. Check Univision.com for mexican soccer. GO USA!!

    FRUGAL, Brad Friedel is a top 10 goalkeeper, probably in the 5-10 range. Who’s better? Iker, Buffon, Pepe Reina, maybe a few others..

    Can we petition FSC to stop showing Proactive commercials? It’s really gotten out of control.


  • Stanley Villa

    “””Bradley goes the full 90, but Monchengladbach loses again, keeping them in the cellar of the Bundesliga table…”””

    Do you think that might be the reason why Gladbach are heading straight back to the 2. Bundesliga?

    I do.

    Napoli-Udinese 2-2 … Quagliarella with the goal of the day imo

    CAGLIARI-Juventus 3-2! Forza Roma!

    If I have to hear Jessica Simpson say, “Just a little dab,” one more time…

    Good lord.

    Zach – Clint was involved in two of the three goals for Fulham but I did not catch any good chances on goal from him. The first goal was a great through ball from Dempsey to Andy Johnson at the end of a good chain of 3-4 passes. The third goal Dempsey took posession outside the box and beat 3 defenders to keep posession into the box. He let a shot off that was deflected and it landed to Davies who served it to Nevland.

    Some also might not find it interesting, but i noticed today that Clint has been moved to another position. Hodgson seems to have swapped him with Davies, from RM to LM. Clint played on the left flank for the whole game. Seems like rather than look for service from the side of midfield he wants them cutting in on goal to shoot and the service to come from the backs.
