Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary


The English Premier League kicked off on Saturday, but several of the league’s heavy hitters make their season debut on Sunday morning.

Headlining Sunday’s action is a clash between Arsenal and Liverpool that serves as each side’s first match of the Premier League season. Prior to that match, though, will be the season debut of Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, who open their campaign against Emerson Hyndman and Bournemouth.

In Germany, a potential clash between Christian Pulisic and Julian Green serves as a major storyline for the Super Cup clash between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, while the Spanish Supercopa will be contested between Sevilla and Barcelona.

If you will be watching today’s soccer, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action.

    Emerson has missed the entire training camp with an ankle injury, it could be at a while before he resumes training.

    LFC v Arsenal the gem of the EPL opening weekend. Just when I thought Mane’s goal (a brilliant run and curling finish) had put this match out of reach, Liverpool with another lapse in intensity as ARS scores to make the last 20 mins exciting (unfortunately from my vantage point).

      Dortmund certainly reloaded this off season. Pulisic is really going to have to earn minutes behind Dembele, Schurrle, Gotze, others.. Wouldn’t be surprised if Green gets more minutes at Bayern this year


      • Ronniet

        I believe Pulisic was given extra time off on holiday after playing in Copa, meaning he came to preseason late, couple that with playing a lot of games for BVB before the season ended. BVB is nothing to run him into the ground this early in his career, not playing in the Copa today means nothing!


      • johnnyrazor

        Ronniet, I like the positive attitude, but several of BvB players played in the Euros which came after the Copa. He also did not play for the U19s or the U23s so I don’t think it means he’s been demoted. It just might take Dortmund getting into their two games a week portion of the season for him to see much of the field.

        Green is going to have the problem that Bayern will be ahead most of the time and not making offensive minded subs.

        Johnny, i appreciate you saying as much but the reality still remains that those other players are and have been full time professionals for some time now, a luxury that Pulisic doesn’t have due to his age. Pulisic is what 18, and considering the Bundesligas history of bringing along players slowly i think we’ll see Christian play the same or maybe a few more games than last season. They know what they have in him and i don’t think the players they brought in will have anything to do with it.


  • Jag

    Heck just loan Pulisic to Sunderland too.

    Regardless the future continues to appear bright for our USMNT.

    GK: Steffens and Horvath
    CB: Brooks, Miazga, CCV
    RB/LB: Yedlin, Olosunde, Desevio
    CM: Hyndman, Zelalem, Canouse, Sonora, Acosta
    Wingers: Green, Pulisic, Gooch, De la Torre, Gyau, Arriola, Akale
    ST: Wood, Morris, Rubin, Kiesewetter

    I know there are tons of others to be pumped about. So much potential. Throw out some other names that should be added here.

      De La Torre is more a CM than a winger, but still a nice prospect.
      Delgado (21) & Roldan (21) are 2 young MLS midfielders who have played well this season.
      EPB has been receiving positive reviews w/ Porto’s reserve team (starts almost every game).
      Wright, & Perez are 2 young strikers on the rise w/ their clubs.

    Jozy 3 goals and an assist in his last four matches, man of the match by several outlets tonight, started and went 71 minutes.

        Not the worst but he’s up there(Lol sarcasm)!!! I’m kidding but obviously JA has to prove that he can consistently stay on the field and be productive. He has been pretty good since returning but I still would like Jurgen to temper his urges to call him in for the next set of qualifiers to give Jozy more time to get up to speed and to prove he can stay on the field before returning to the Nats!
