I just froze the replay several times on Emilio's offsides call. He was clearly onside when the ball was struck. Just a horrendous call. The AR should be ashamed of himself. Having said that, I don't get the criticism of his positioning. It wasn't perfect but it wasn't awful either.

What about Maurice Edu of Rangers? Did he play?

Spector now knows how Paul McCartney feels because he was in Lennon's shadow all day. Actually he was about a half step from Lennon's shadow all day.

Burnley the giant killers

Burnley won again?!? That town must be rocking....

Edu is injured. Last I heard, he'll be ready some time in September.

The only place rocking more than Burnley is New York. Or at least the 9000 people that showed up to watch them win today

9000? Looked like 2000, if that.

Richie will miracle a few wins for lowly RBNY before they bring in a big name in the off-season.

United would be foolish not to sign Richie as their new coach next season.

Sympathies to Spector. Lennon lights up most left backs. The one time Spector did master Lennon and won the ball, he muffed his clearance -- and Lennon struck the match-winner.

Hull was dull until Altidore entered in minute 60. Jose's first touch came with his back to the goal at the head of the penalty area. He took the ball on his chest and then flipped the ball over his back with his right foot to a teammate who scored the match-winner. A world-class assist. Moments later, Altidore deaked the keeper to the ground and showed his 19-year-old composure by missing a 12-yard chip shot barely wide to the right of the open net. Later, he had several possessions in the area and tried to do everything himself, failing to find open teammates. A bit selfish, but he'll learn. All in all, an auspicious debut in the Premiership.

Some great press for Jozy yesterday and today in England. Saw the highlights last night, would have been even better if he could have found the net with one of those chances. Still, great debut...
