    Cheer up Alan Shearer,
    Oh what can it mean,
    To a sad Geordie b*stard,
    And a s*ite footbal team…

    5th minute- GOAL! Diarra wins the ball in his attacking third for Kaka, who drills a shot from outside the 18 yard box in the middle of the field! 1-0 Real.

    People need to stop thinking that being American has anything to do with it. It comes down to skills and what you offer for the team. Every player on a team is playing to earn his money. And if a coach throws you on the field and you don’t perform, he’s going to look at the next player in that position. Cuz if the team doesn’t perform, the coach usually gets fired quick. Wether you’re American or not, unless you can run through a team like Messi or Ribery, you have to fight for playing time.


  • Josh.2

    Arsenal’s problem is not depth. Look how their kids played against Liverpool in the Carling cup. When everyone is healthy, they are the team to beat. They just need to learn to shut the game off like Chelsea does.


  • japan

    Arsenal never has everyone healthy. Like I said, we don’t have depth in center back or holding midfield. Imagine if they have to put Sendoros or Silvestre in for few games. They will also struggle when Song is gone for a month. You’re right though. If everyone is fit and they learn to shut the game off, Arsenal is the team to beat. Unfortuantly, that will not happen.


  • Isaac

    Possibly. If there is anything Bob Bradley does a good job of, it’s integrating players into a certain style or position.


  • Rich

    I don’t think players should use that as an excuse because it won’t help them play. But a lot of European footbal clubs do not think highly of US “soccer” except a few like Fulham, Everton and other cash strapped teams that mine the US for inexpensive players.


  • primoone

    O…my bad…your right. He must have been tired from helping Beas with his defensive assignment…

    Dont take the comment soo personal. Its not like its an attack on you. Beaz is a good player…or was a good player…his confidence is shot to hell and that has to do with Bradley’s idiotic idea of playing him out of position.


  • OmarVizquel

    Who said anything about contributing? I’m simply saying that DMB is not the only USMNT field player to start a game for a team in the Champions League!


  • Jose S.

    Edgar Castillo playing as a Left Midfielder today for Tigers. Created a handball inside the box for a penalty.

    Andres Cantor the Telemundo announcer seems to have a vendetta against Castillo. He bashes Castillo hard after any mistake he makes. Right now Castillo made a bad pass and Cantor remarked “I’m losing patience with this guy. maybe one day we will see him play well.” He even bashed him when his pass led to the handball. Since Castillo made it known that he wanted to play for the US, Cantor has been on him continuously. Why should he care? He is from Argentina


  • JK

    Yeah, I’ve noticed the same thing from Cantor, although I think Castillo is forcing it at times (IMHO).


  • Jose S.

    Goal!!!!! Edgar Castillo.

    Ran around three players and blasted to the bottom corner. Right footed.


  • JK

    Nice ability to slice through defenders, and then neatly finish the ball for Edgar, albeit the goal came with Tigres playing 2 men up.
