It was supposed to be a cross.

And, Hope Solo says....?

I think Zack Wells would have that, too. There might be an opening for him in Saudi, if he's interested.

I'm watching Leverkusen-Frankfurt on GolTV right now, and it was 3-0 at 10 minutes. The first goal was 90 seconds in. It's not the same as 3 seconds, but still....

I sure do like not working on a weekday. Thanks, vets.

ESPN is providing some tremendous Veterans Day coverage. Well done to the folks in Bristol.

Why is Leverkusen so good this year? The roster is hardly full of stars. That's some fine scouting and coaching going on there.

By the by -- there was a piece yesterday about an a British FA (or EPL) bigwig, who was proposing lots of changes. One was to give points for goals, especially a 3rd goal. That would be great in MLS, where the parity makes that a real achievement. However, in most European leagues, there is an enormous talent gap between the top and bottom sides, and 3-0, 4-1 scores are really not that uncommon. Not sure it makes good sense to further reward/promote the income disparity by dishing out more points for a blowout win. It might make individual games more exciting for fans of the winning team, but it would only exacerbate the competitiveness gap in the standings.

That dance was amazing.

I remember someone scoring like that - in high school PE.

Don't know why, but those Arabic announcers make my day.

Someone should have told that team that DMB is not a good netminder (or much anything else either these days).

DMB? Looks more like the guy (Lt. Daniels) from The Wire.

I would have saved that shot.

Hope Solo.

After this, Louis Crayton decides to leave Saudi Arabia and come back to DCU! :)

The goalie didn't make an attempt to stop it!

Posted by: redskinsux | November 12, 2009 2:27 AM | Report abuse

Slightly unimpressed. I mean, they probably could have cut it to 2 seconds if they hadn't taken the unnecessary first touch on the KO...

Agree that the goal dance was almost as impressive at the goal itself, though.
