Soccer Wednesday: Your Running Commentary


There's a mid-week bonanza of soccer around the world, as the Manchester derby highlights a great Wednesday slate of action.

Aside from the Manchester City-Manchester United match, Real Madrid looks to avoid being eliminated from the Copa del Rey in the second leg of its tie with Real Murcia (2 p.m., GOLTV) after being held to a scoreless draw in the opening leg.

Hoping to see some U.S. men's national teamers? Plenty are in action, including Tim Howard's Everton taking on Stuart Holden's Bolton, Clint Dempsey's Fulham looking to topple Chelsea, Maurice Edu's Rangers hosting Hibernian and Jozy Altidore's Villarreal hoping to advance in the Copa del Rey.

  1. I love Demps too but there are a lot of other important pieces to Fulham.

    Zamora/Schwarzer/Gera/Hangeland were all just as important as Deuce last year

  2. Dempsey’s not going anywhere sorry. And also Demps was TERRIBLE early in the season but the last few games he’s been brilliant. Good work Deuce for getting back on form

    Hangeland is player of the season so far for Fulham

  3. Clint Dempsey was lucky to walk away without a serious injury today. F*** Chelsea f*** essien

    Yea Essien didn’t really connect with his leg.. but if he had Dempsey would have been in a wheelchair like Aaron Ramsey or Preston Burpo

  4. Good point Tony. Although other than those two guys (and wasn’t Wynalda in Bundesliga 2 one of those years?) is there anyone else (honest question)?

  5. Wynalda scored 12 goals during the 93/94 season (after scoring 9 in the 92/93 season) in Germany. Charlie Davies scored 14 goals in 2008.

    So, I’m not sure what you’re saying here…?

  6. anytime Jozy scores is 1 more than any other striker in Europe, US of course.

    I mean look at our strikers from Wynalda, McBride, Mathis, Wolff, EJ, Cooper, Davies.

    And you have guys like Cam Weaver or that Houston Dynamo dude who went to Austria. basically our strikers were never proficiently scoring in Europe on a consistent basis except McBride.

    so props to Altidore

  7. Spector was on the bench? Does that mean he’s earned his way back to the starting XI or are there many injured defenders or just everyone else sucks more than him?

    any chance Spector could head to Bundesliga come January?

  8. I want to see Jozy’s goal and an image of Spector actually being on the bench! 🙂

    Edu left on the stretcher?? … I hope nothing serious.

    Team “Save Freddy Adu 2010”!
