I think Inter/Pool is next week

UEFA moved the Inter/Liverpool match to take pressure off of San Siro, which would have had too many matches in too short a period of time.

Liverpool is playing West Ham today.

That is a Fisher-esque error.

Do some research, you bum.

Kidding, or course.

Keep up the fine work.

Goff,
Sort of off topic, but do you have any updates on Tino's trial progress? When does DC have to make its final roster decisions? Are we going to be able to play Harbour View FC without having completed our roster? Thanks!

So with Messi out for six weeks, that means he's out for the Olympic preliminaries, right?

Posted by: Juan-John | March 5, 2008 1:19 PM | Report abuse

I'm not in San Antonio with the team. No Santino updates. Decision by Sunday or Monday. Only 18 players will go to Jamaica for first leg.

Messi? Oly preliminaries?? Argentina already qualified.

Chelsea 1, Olympiakos 1. The Greeks advance on the away-goals rule!

(I just want to see an Olympiakos-Fenerbahce matchup in the quarterfinals. Tremendous national pride would be at stake.)

Real Madrid 3, Roma 2. Another away-goals victory. Forza Roma!

Porto "who cares?", FC Schalke "who cares?"

Goff,

Whether or not the Post is interested in it for the Dead Tree Version, have you done any work on the progress of the youth sides for DC United and MLS as a whole? I know it's young - but does DC have any kids that could be up for a development contract? Do other teams? How's John Maessner doing in his role there?

Posted by: Youth Initiative | March 5, 2008 1:40 PM | Report abuse

Madrid 2-1 Roma, Roma advances on PKs (Doni vs Casillas in PKs? Would be quite a sight).

Porto 2-0 Shalke, no way Porto loses at home.

Chelski 1-0 Olympiakos, should be an ugly and boring match with Chelsea sitting back and waiting to counter.

Olympiakos 1-1, 1-1 Agg (away goals)
Porto 2-0, 2-1 Agg
Roma 1-1, 3-2 Agg
Liverpool 0-1, 2-1 Agg

MLS youth squads are a long way from yielding first-team players. It's a story sometime down the road, but not at the moment.

Posted by: Goff | March 5, 2008 1:44 PM | Report abuse

FYI, former DCU defender Clint Peay has joined Greg Andrulis's coaching staff as an assistant at George Mason University.

Um, as much as I don't want it to happen against DC, Becks and the Fish looked pretty good on the first goal in China.

Also, did you see KC signed Colombian forward Ivan Trujillo?

Olympiapos 5 Chelsea 1. Terry, Lampard, A. Cole RED carded for arguing with ref and players hahahahhaaaa
Goff,
I noticed NY Times sent a reporter with RBNY to Austria preseason training. Wouldn't post send you even in Texas?

Thanksbetothesoccerjesus that AC Milan's boring 10 players in the box style has been rightly put to rest.

Fabregas saves Walcott's arse with a strong dipping shot. Walcott rebounds and claims a rightful place in the memorable match with a startling run late to seal it!!

Not to drag the stadium discussion in here, but let's think positive and maybe some vibes will spread to Poplar Point. Look at these small footprint, fantastic stadiums and think of yourself sitting in your DC United season ticket holder seat!!

I'd like to TIVO my life.

That way I could skip the next two weeks of work and just watch the United matches.

The NY Times reporter paid his own way to Austria. Heck, the NYT hardly ever sends a reporter across the river to Giants Stadium for home games.

7 days until Harbour View!

FYI flights to Kingston at $487. Who's in?

Thanks Goff! I wondered too.

Anyone check out Roma's little scarves? Are they Prada or Fendi?

@Posted by: Liverpool_SC | March 5, 2008 11:35 AM

actually, they moved it because Liverpool has (had) a midweek make up game to play.

I love that Micha is throwing up a big 'zum Teufel mit dir!' to all the people who thought be wasn't capable of playing for the 'almighty' Chelsea. They don't deserve him

Wow, all you Chelsea haters were way off. 4-3 on PKS?? 5-1? 1-1?? HAHAHAHAHAHA!! Complete domination by the Blues.
