  1. thats the poll question of the week whos better sissoko or alsonso? id take the malian? do you knows mali midfield consits of diarra momo and keita from barca, that small country has 3 world class dmids and probably wont qualify for the world cup? we need just one.

  2. Sorry, but LFC cast aside Sissoko at the perfect time, its great to see that Momo’s move to Juve has been good for him, but he was surplus to requirements at Anfield, and he is still outside of the class of Alonso and Mascherano…

  3. I think some of your are reading far too much into Jozy’s play, Pelligrini seems to think he is playing well enough to justify the time he is giving him, what did you expect to him to do, he was basically playing by himself up top, starved of any service, with his team down a man…

  4. Juve can roll like that when Sissoko is holding down the midfield and distributing like that. I always felt Liverpool cast him aside a little quick. The Kaka-Ronaldinho-Pato goal was fun, but Milan misses Gattuso. If they have any sense, they’ll be bidding on Portsmith’s Diarra this winter, even if they have to go against Madrid.

    Martha in Miami can coo about another great day from Del Piero, but I’m more interested in Amauri making the team look smart for snatching him up from Palermo where he scored 15 last year. Except for one major knee injury, he’s been one of the best strikers in Serie A since leading Chievo to the Champ’s League in 2005. I’ve got Brazil envy that they produce so many good attacking players that this guy’s never gotten a whiff of the national team…

  5. Dang that Juve-Milan game was basically all Juve. I know Milan got two goals but really the possession the chances and obviously the goals all went Juve’s way.

  6. Wow.

    7th round of PKs, nobody has missed… Toluca’s kick clangs off the crossbar, but then off the keepers back and in.

    Then Cruz Azul’s kick is saved.

    Toluca are champions.

  7. In other games, I forgot I had the Juve – Milan match open in another browser. it’s gone from 1-0 Juv to 3-1 Juv in the last 25 mins. 87th now

  8. Yup. It was interesting to watch Rossi last week making all the runs I was used to seeing Jozy make. He didn’t used to be this way, and when he is on he makes run after run. I believe he has the skill to do it, but I think in order to make the leap to the next level, he needs to have consistency of effort and commitment.

    Dempsey is subject to the same thing, and he’s great when he’s going all out and then has long periods of games where you never see him run, he’s in perma-jog mode.

  9. I’ve never seen Jozy so pissed off. I thought he was calm and collected. Even on that Free kick that Freddy scored on against Guatemala Jozy was pissed then too. He needs to calm down. There is no space in football for that kind of crap.

  10. I don’t know if my last post didn’t go through, but I’ll state it again:

    Altidore has a bad attitude on the pitch-I’ve never seen it before and if he had it last week, I can understand why people were getting on him. It’s not so much that he played poorly-it’s that he walks around and doesn’t bust his *** the way he SHOULD. Not really sure why this is happening-but it really comes off VERY poorly-it’s the EJ mentality-big deal, I haven’t scored in 5 years, I can still stroll around the pitch-no YOU CAN’T. Even if you are scoring 20 goals a game you should still BUST your *** for EVERY loose ball, track down every time until you are dead…

    Disappointing to see this from Jozy.

  11. Jozy has no excuse not to do a ton of running and hard work coming on for a 30 min shift.

    Yikes! Don’t forget about that Sev counter!

  12. Well, the goal definitely stood. Sevilla headed the ball in the box to Kanoute, who was breaking to goal and onsides. He then passed forward to Renato, who looked offsides to me, but who scored anyways.

    2nd half underway and Kanoute almost bags another 35 secs in

  13. Jozy will do fine. He’s been getting starts and is starting to adapt. He’ll feel comfortable playing alongside a forward like Franco who has a similar style to Angel back with the Red Bulls. Jozy knows how to simplify the game.

  14. I have a good feeling about Jozy today. He’s been getting starts and I think he’ll feel comfortable with a striker like Franco who is very similar to the style that Angel played back with the Red Bulls.

  15. According to this is the unofficial lineup today. But the roster is official, and Rossi is not in it. Here is how Marca has them lining up today…
