    Real is 34 — 34! — points above Atlético. Although it’s true Atlético is having a poor season, the economic disparity in La Liga is outrageous.


  • war

    why can’t Juve win anymore!? I think they need to go back down to Serie B. Ahh. So frustrating. I expect to see chairs on fire soon.


  • Jeff

    The Austin mens over 30 league may make the tv schedule, but if not we’ll still try our best


  • baquito alyeska

    Am I crazy or was Buddle, along with another Galaxy player, a full body length offsides on Galaxy’s goal?


  • DC Josh

    Ives, no mention of the Milan/Lazio game? If Milan win they pull within a point of Inter and tie Roma on 62 points. It’s no Madrid derby, but the San Siro will turn into the Bastille if Milan can’t pull off a win.


  • Erik

    Watching it live it looked completely legit.

    On another note, can anyone in MLS actually pass the ball? Watching that game last night was like watching Hull’s B team.


  • Citronomics

    That breaks the recent streak of Dressed but DNP for Adu. Let’s hope he and EJ have a positive impact for Aris


  • aby c

    I wish they would show the most underrated American Abroad in Mix Diskerud. The kid is only 19 plays for Stabaek, a top team, has played in Champions League, starts and has set up there goals. The kid is good


  • B-Waite

    Only put it on in time to see the last 15 mins of the first half. They looked OK, Freddy made a few decent moves with the ball but hit a woeful cross with EJ and another forward making good runs into the box and he missed a 25 yard shot well wide. Aris pretty much dominated the last 15 mins of possession, but no great chance to show for it


  • Der_Amerikanische_Kaiser

    Is willing to bet his paycheck that Bradley will not see another start at MB due to his suspension for today’s match against Hamburg where MB came out firing on all cylinders and looked real sharp in Bradley’s absence.



  • Mike

    EJ out in the 65th minute. Adu fouled at the top of the goal box leads to free kick goal by Aris. 1-0 lead.


  • B-Waite

    highly doubtful. doesn’t he also have a broken nose? i’d be stunned if he doesn’t start again


  • ahm

    ill be happy to take your paycheck man. lemme know when you’re ready to take down my info to send it on over


  • Jose S.

    Aris win and clinch playoff spot for Champions League berth.

    That means six more games in late April-early May for them.


  • Der_Amerikanische_Kaiser

    Yes he does have a broken nose, but was suspended for today’s match due to accumalation of yellw’s. If he wants to start another match this season, he’ll have to work hard at it. The MB MF did a fantastic job today of creating chances and oppty’s for the forards which resulted in the massive win for MB.


  • Jank

    I thought there was some decent passing in the NYRB-Fire match above all the other games but I only watched 3 matches.


  • D

    AC Milan’s defense is terrible. I really hope Gooch gets some play soon. Of course he’s not even in Italy. I saw him las night at the Galaxy game sitting next to Beckham.


  • 340234958203

    NYRB- Fire was the best match I watched on saturday, very exciting, good passing, I thought I was watching the Premier League


  • BCC

    Bad blood makes point disparities meaningless.

    It was an okay game. Atletico took their foot of the pedal in the second half for some reason, even after Xabi Alonso gifted them a penalty to make it 3-2.

    Higuain scored number 23, Kun Aguero’s hair looked stunning (based on the number of times he fixed it), so all was right in Madrid.
