Joy to the world, Goff is back!

Oh thank goodness. You are back. I didn't think I could hold out much longer. Happy New Year, Goff.

I was worried that he had been locked in a "closet", because he had a concussion!

J_S_F - are you suggesting that Goffino is now "out of the closet?"

Welcome back, Goff. Hope you are well rested.

Hope you had a good vacation Goff. Glad you're back!

Happy World Cup Year to all!

Welcome back Steve.

Who is this Goff guy?

"Jay DeMerit 90 in Watford's 5-0 FA Cup loss at Chelsea"

I suppose getting shellacked now rather than later is "character building" while this summer it will be a National disgrace . .

Good to see him on the pitch, though.

The Grinch finally relented and brought the Goffer back! There's going to be a party in Whoville tonight!

Welcome back Goff. It was a cold dark winter without you.

Also, on Demerit he apparently went off with an injury during injury time against Chelsea. I suppose that would be ironic, no?

Just a note on the Aston Villa-Blackburn match. The score was actually 3-1, not 3-2. Blackburn notched its only goal at 55 minutes when Guzan dropped an inswinging corner, allowing Kalinic to pop it into the net.

Welcome back, Goff, hope you are rested and ready to go. Here is an Americans Abroad question right from the off --
Should we be worried about Carlos Bocanegra? He was an unused sub in Rennes's last three matches before the winter break, apparently failing to unseat Romain Danze, who filled in at left back while Boca sat for yellow card accumulation.
Given that the state of the US defense is not the greatest health-wise, I can't think it would be good for el capitan to come into the World Cup short of playing time.

Bring back Bonesteel! lol.

Welcome back Goff

What is this place and why is it part of my RSS feed?

Looking forward to reading the Monday Kickaround with my coffee tomorrow. Welcome back, Steven Goff.

Don't forget Landon Donovan arrived in Everton on Saturday and watched the second half of Evertons 3-1 win over Carlisle.

Posted by: spikeman | January 3, 2010 11:49 PM | Report abuse

What is Donovan's kit #?

Only six more hours til Goff's next post!

I hope this has shown him that vacations are futile and should just let the WP pay him for his vacation time.

;)

Welcome back, Kotter.

Our long, loyalist nightmare is over!

Dallas, or Frisco, is not technically in a foreign country but Edgar Castillo played there yesterday for Tigres as they lost 4-1 to Fishy Ruiz' Puebla team in their first Interliga game.

It seems unlikely the Libertadores Cup will be a part of Castillo's immediate future.

Hey Steve. Hope you enjoyed your vacation.

I think being employed is a bit over-rated.

Spector got a lot of time v. Spurs last week but he was getting abused a little bit . . .
