    Enjoy the action.


    1. Time for the meaningless, worthless Concacaf game with DC United and 3 or 4 fans in RFK – the last opportunity to see many players and coaches who we will hopefully never seen again!!! But…I’ll watch…maybe they’ll have to put the “borrowed goalie from the MLS player pool” in for some excitement!

    2. The attendance to the Hull-Chelsea game was 24,906 but it might as well have been about 75% of that with how quiet the Hull fans have been

    3. Finally Malouda sticks one in to the net. perfect low cross from….Carvalho? anyways its put chelsea ahead 3-0 and Geovanni should probably run off the pitch crying any moment now.

    4. Shame Dempsey didn’t get the start. I bet he would have added a goal if he did. Finally Andy Johnson put some goals in a Fulham shirt. For nearly 11 million pounds, he better score at least 12goals this season to become a successful addition.

    5. Hey another cleansheet for Pepe Reina. How come he is so underrated? He won the Golden Gloves for the EPL over the last 3 years straight? He should be in the running for best GK in the world. I understand Casillas and Cech and VanDer Sar and Buffon but come on Reina is the best

    6. Ronaldo may be seen as the best player in the world but who else would be in your top 10 of deciding?

      For me.

      Fernando Torres

      David Villa

      Steven Gerrard

      Frank Lampard

      Lionel Messi

      Rio Ferdinand

      Iker Casillas

      Edwin Van Der Sar

      Pepe Reina

      Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    7. Im looking forward to how well Bradley will do now that he’s getting playing time for MGB. He didnt have a good night against Cuba and took a well deserved rest against T&T.

    8. It is a free for all with goals so far today. Liverpool and Chelsea beating it tense for the top spot with Arsenal, Man U and Aston Villa coming behind them.

    9. Some really outstanding goals scored today, Bentley’s blast, the 2nd Ronaldo goal (Berbatov provides the magic), and as much as it pains me to say it, the Lampard goal.

    10. Hull have picked it up a notch. I have to point something out though. Geovanni was talkin’ the talk earlier this week and its not the fact that they’re losing that pisses me off, its just that he says something like what he did and then he starts DIVING… nice one, Geo.

    11. Damn, didn’t see the ‘no spoilers for tape delayed games’ note.

      So many games are watched via internet these days that I sort of disagree with the policy but hey, it’s all good. Sorry about the oops. Delete my comment from 6:14 if you like.

    12. Candidate for goal of the year, to be sure, Ives. Of course, I dropped him two weeks ago from my fantasy squad (he wasn’t being played by Ramos) and he scores in each game. Fk.

    13. A Diop handball gives Liverpool the penalty kick that wins the game. Tough first official match in charge for Tony Adams. Solid showing though.

    14. g-loff – go into the BBC site and by club you can look at live commentary and then there is also a live feed of all the games which is up to date.

      Not sure what the problem is with ESPN today.

    15. Man, this is frustrating. Trying to keep up with the Liverpool-Portsmouth match and the espn gamecast commentary is running about 15 minutes behind the action, then the only feed that seems to be (sort of) working I can find is someone literally videotaping their television…and THAT keeps cutting out. Cruel, cruel world…

    16. Ives, are you going to do a follow-up on the Americans abroad in yesterday and today’s games? How did Bradley do yesterday for example?

      Freddy dressed but didn’t see action in the Monoco game today. Don’t see Jozy’s name on the roster for Villareal.
