Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary

Wayne Rooney 1 (

Premier League powers Manchester United and Liverpool square off today in the weekend's most high-profile encounter.

Both teams are coming off disappointing draws in Premier league play, with Manchester United enjoying the home-field advantage at Old Trafford.

The Premier League isn't the only league offering quality tilts today. Bordeaux faces Lyon in a top French clash, while Flamengo and Fluminense renew their long-standing rivalry. Then you have Atletico Madrid facing FC Barcelona in what could be the most entertaining match of the day.

  1. thats a ridiculous comment. Soccer is notoriously a game of form and arguably no one was in better form than rooney last year, CERTAINLY not berbatov. This year, berba is in form and is playing excellent, but to say berba was better than rooney last year was silly. Soccer isn’t a skills challenge, its a game and last year rooney played it much better than berba

  2. By all accounts he seemed to do fine in the Europa League.

    I know a striker is supposed to score, but just because he has a game/games where he doesn’t doesn’t make him a bad striker or make it a bad game. He’s got other tools.

  3. Jozy is getting minutes and doing nothing with them. No controversy there. He’ll be back in MLS before you know it.

    (SBI-You know, for someone who claims to be a U.S. national team fan, it’s amazing how the majority of your comments are negative shots at American players and coaches. Nothing wrong with being critical at times, but when all you do is rip U.S. players, I can’t help but wonder what your deal is. Do you really have this much contempt for your own players and team?)

  4. If he keeps on his good form and especially scoring, I can imagine a pretty good Dutch team picks him up on free transfer come January. His team also has a chance to win the league this season.

    On a different note, Bedoya has helped his team to 3rd place in Sweden. Good chance to finish 2nd and compete for a spot in the CL next year.

  5. Maybe Berbatov will be United’s ‘makeup’ this year. Last year, ManU was really suspect but Rooney’s monster season covered up a lot of flaws. So far this season, they have been sloppy at the back but now Berba’s performance rescued them.

    Still, I don’t see any way they take the title.

  6. I actually think that Berbatov is much better than Rooney.

    I said that last year and everyone jumped on me, it’s nice to see reality backing me up.

  7. Holy cow! Diego Milito 1-v-1 w the Palermo goal keeper who stones him. and then he takes a wild swing at a cross from Maicon. It’s early in the season but Milito is not sharp

  8. Ditto on no FSP with Charter. It’s Inter v. Palermo on FSC. 20+ mins and Samuel and Chivu already going for 2 footed tackles to stymie any Palermo attacks.
