Soccer Wednesday: Your Running Commentary


Photo by Rick Osentoski/ISIphotos.com

Wednesday night represents a big night for MLS teams both in league and CONCACAF Champions League play, but prior to that, a pretty intriguing mid-week slate of European matches takes center stage.

In addition to Spanish powers Real Madrid and Barcelona being in action, some Americans Abroad should take to the pitch as well. Michael Bradley is getting his first start with Chievo Verona, while Clint Dempsey's Fulham will try and knock Chelsea out of the Carling Cup in their third-round matchup.

    Bradley looked rusty at times, it was definitely an inconsistent performance from him. Still, it’s good to see MB90 going 90 again.

    you know, I am no big flag waver but I agree with you 100% on the national anthem point. My wife, who is from Latin America,always comments on the same thing when we play national team matches. Only Boca,Howard and Bradley sing.

    dude, get off it. they had a bad game, but he is most certainly NOT playing negative. the exception could be argued for Barca games last year. But even this season, so far, Madrid attacked Barca and out shot them in both games.


  • hogatroge

    Can’t speak for performances prior to this past Gold Cup, but in his last 3 or so USMNT caps, he was most definitely not “fail.”

    Maybe you’re thinking of Felipe Bedoya, Manuel Bedoya or MicahK Bedoya?
