  1. man, when VAN are firing on all cylinders they are fun to watch. this game they look energetic and quick on offense (perhaps like their other games, i haven’t watched them before tonight).

    • he came in in the 99′; seems like a vote of confidence to have the coach want to sub you on the field incase it goes to PKs.

  2. Surprised that Gladbach doesn’t get mentioned in the body, with them almost sure to be in the Champions League next year, I wonder whether we could see another American in the Champions League group stage.

      • i saw a stat somewhere that they are undefeated when FJ starts. perhaps a meaningless stat but quasi-interesting nonetheless. lol
