Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary


Leicester City can take another step towards the English Premier League title on Sunday.

The Foxes host West Ham United in what is sure to be an intense affair at King Power Stadium. West Ham, currently four points behind fifth-place Manchester United, needs a win just as badly as Leicester.

Elsewhere across Europe, Barcelona will be looking to end its winless run against Valencia, and Borussia Dortmund will attempt to bounce back against Hamburg after losing in the UEFA Europa League to Liverpool.

In the evening, FC Dallas-Sporting Kansas City headlines action in MLS, while Guadalajara-Atlas takes center stage in Mexico.

  1. If UniMas/Liga MX were smart, they would have an english channel for their Sunday games like they do for the Friday MLS games. I would absolutely follow the league more if that was available.

    … as long as it isn’t Ramses Sandoval…

  2. I know this is an american-centric site but, big loss for soccer in general today – Marchisio out of the Euros for Italy with a torn acl. Amazing player.

  3. Let’s not fire up the hype machine too much. It’s been great to see Pulisic start strongly for Dortmund but he still has a lot to learn before we can anoint him the next big thing. He hasn’t had to deal with expectations, gone through a long grueling season, and adjusted to the speed of international play. Let’s all hope he does so without huge growing pains and stays healthy. No one wants to see him become the next Freddy Adu or John O’Brien. Let’s also hope his cousin is just as good.

    • I’m happy to hear he is starting to find his stride. It was sad watching him play in the last U17 WC. He is much better than what he showed in that tournament.

  4. Agree, it’s not really hype when he’s demonstrating he can already play at this level. Given how sorely the USMNT needs his creative skill set, it’s not hard to see him starting at the World Cup, or even the Copa America. He’s essentially a like-for-like replacement for Donovan, with similar flexibility in where he plays. The though of hhe and Johnson playing together on the left is scary, though Johnson may not love the idea of playing LB. He could also play up top with Jozy. A good headache for Klinsmann to have.

  5. ok hype train and all that aside, PulisiK is making a serious argument that not only should he be on the team this summer at the Copa America, but that he should start. He’s been effective in every game he’s played for Dortmund, and just went the full 90. He never looks out classes or uncomfortable despite his age. Not to mention playing him on the left frees up FJ to play LB solving a persistent problem for us.

    Ok now you can all yell at me to get off the hype train.

    • I completely agree with you. If anyone else a little older was contributing to the second place team in Germany and, quite frankly, one of the best teams in the world, they would be almost guaranteed a starting spot in the USMNT lineup. Why should his age even be considered at this point. He clearly is at another level.

    • I don’t care how old you are, if you’re starting regularly for Dortmund you’re starting for the USMNT. I only caught the last 15 minutes and Hamburg was down to nine players, but dude was sick in the time I watched. Started the sequence that ended up in the third goal, had two pinpoint crosses that could’ve been goals, Played a lovely little ball to Aubameyang that probably should’ve been a goal. There is no hype train. This isn’t about potential. It’s pretty evident just by watching games that the kid is the best attacking player in the USMNT pool RIGHT NOW.

      • At 17 years, 6 months and 29 days of age, Christian Pulisic became the fourth-youngest goalscorer in Bundesliga history.

      • **cracks knuckles and chuckles**…

        Rob, so you seem to be sarcastically saying that scoring at a .5 rate (in ANY league) isn’t good…. Really? lol for reference, David villa just did that last season. But you’re implying that David villa is not good ? Hmmm…..

        Secondly, a 17 year old American player just scored a goal for the number 2 team in a top 4 euro league. And your first thought was to mock him and another one of our NT players by attempting to diminish his goal today….. Cool bro…….

        So what is an acceptable amount of goals for an American striker to score? Even in MLS?

        If a striker scores 13 in 25 in the 2.Bunds is that good enough for you? Or is 17 in 30 games still not good enough?

        I truly wonder what the endgame is for comments like yours. How about you try supporting your compatriots?…

  6. Rangers beats celtic in the old firm derby to move on to the cup final, Zelalem converts his penalty kick taken.

      • He didn’t look wonderful in his sub appearance and arguably gave up the equalizer but he converted his PK and silenced the crowd. I think he should look to go to a more technical league.

  7. Witnessing this Leicester team consistently get results and stay atop the league this late in the season is absolutely surreal. I can’t begin to make comparisons because they all seem ridiculous. This is like the Browns running the table this season and winning the Super Bowl. It’s just not supposed to happen but it is.

      • well, Leicester city are something like the 27th richest club in the world, but of course 17 of the top 30 richest clubs are in the EPL. to me, LC is a blueprint for teams with less to go and win against teams with more. atl Madrid are doing a similar thing in spain. its definitely not a base 4-3-3 dutch style that is doing this.
