Any insight into how UC Davis makes the top 10 in the men's poll and what's going on with UCSB?

UC Davis is for real. Big West a solid soccer conference.

According to Soccernet, Mourinho claims he has "unfinished business" in the EPL and may return to England after his contract with Inter ends. I think he wants to shorten his commute to London to host I'm On Setanta Sports.

You guys know 'El Primitivo' means caveman right? Can you imagine calling someone like that because of their looks here in the US? LOL !

I quit because Geico was sponsoring our games.

Sports from Lake Woebegone:

Charlie Davies started, played 89', and scored the 2nd goal for Hammarby in their 3-0 defeat of Djurgarden.

Danny Califf went 90' in Midgetlands 2-1 win over Aarhus. Jeremiah White played 90 for Aarhus.

The Minnesota Thunder's season is over.

I-270, you aren't the only one who read's Califf's team and calls it that...

Pommie rhyming slang truly is its own language...

I'd much rather watch Juventus - Real Madrid than ManU - Celtic. I think ESPN earlier (during DC-New England on Thursday?) had said they would show Real - Juve.

Maybe they found out neither of those teams were in the British Isles so they had to change it. ESPN's coverage of the Champions League would be much more interesting if it weren't so Brit-centric.

Goff, being a great soccer blogist is never having to say you are sorry. This is all gravy for us!

Garbaggio - I'd agree, though the Bayern Munich - Fiorentina game on Tuesday is pretty tasty too. Granted, I'm a biased Fiorentina fan, but embattled Klinsman at home trying to get a win and Luca Toni's former teammates coming for a visit should make for interesting viewing, no?

Just found out that Verizon added Setanta to my soccer package. When do these "special one" features normally air?

Posted by: JMR | October 20, 2008 5:37 PM | Report abuse

I was waiting for The Special One to comment on It's loss to Jamaica. Worth it. And as a Real fan I'm disappointed it isn't the ESPN game, but I'm fine with it I suppose.

You can usually do it to me between the EPL games broadcasted by Setanta Sports on Saturday. My show has it's own featured time that will show on your provider's menu guide.

Be champions!
