Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary

The early rounds of the FA Cup are always intriguing because of the potential for upsets and the match-ups between English Premier League powers and once-might clubs now struggling in the lower divisions.

  1. Cape Verde!!!

    Just got to London from West Africa. Almost almost arranged my trip so I would be in Cape Verde now. Soooo wish I had.

    • Not really. All strikers miss chances. Most of his looks have been half chances at best. He also creates a lot of half chances by flinging his body into cracks that most strikers wouldn’t even try. Was that a chance? Only because he flung his body recklessly in front of the defender and glanced the ball at the perfect angle to score. How many guys would even attempt that? If you look at his big miss last week against the Manx, it seemed like an easy chance, but he is actually fling his body through the smallest of cracks, weaving through a network of defenders. He has to turn left to avoid the defense and De Gea brilliantly sees this and dives to that side before Deuce pulls the trigger. Clint tries to adjust and change his shot but can only open his hips enough to fire it up the middle and hit De Gea’s trailing legs. Only someone like a Romario or a Messi could have opened up their hips quickly enough to slot it into the right corner. Deuce could have attempted to roof the shot or use a glancing outside of the foot shot, or chip it, but it was all happening at the highest speeds and those are low percentage options. He basically put it on De Gea to make a spectacular save and he did. I still think that was probably the percentage move for anyon but a guy like Messi. So is Deuce isn’t Messi, but he’s still a really good, creative, opportunistic, cut throat goal scorer. Even Messi misses, after all. Just watch the last World Cup.
