Great to see that Eddie Johnson got to play for Fulham yesterday and the Holden continues to feature for Bolton Wanderers! Concerned about Kljestan not being in the lineup for Anderlecht.

Johnson may see more time now that Zamora is out for months. Of course if EJ sucks it up like he always does it wont matter.

Vidal goes 90 and apparently looked very good. Exciting to see him making a name for himself. He has occasionally posted on BigSoccer dating back several years. He's 24, so who knows...maybe he's one to keep an eye out for in 2014. Yes, we have loads of promising players in midfield. But more performances like yesterday and he definitely deserves to be in the discussion and get a look with the national team. Also, he's played left back before at Indios!

Zamora has to be one of the more tragic soccer stories of 2010. Signed a four year contract with Fulham this week, after years of great playing finally gets called up to the English squad and then breaks his leg during a match against Wolves on a pretty normal looking tackle.

This will be a great chance for EJ to shine and really prove himself but I'm not overly optimistic.

Haven't been posting a lot, football season means two full time jobs, but Hope Solo drops the most entertaining twitter rants this of Kanye West, and she's at it again. This time: Whether or not Saturday's events at the Plex were pre-determined.

I would have saved that tweet.

re: Hope's tweet-- I'm guessing she'll get fined for violating the League's social media policy.

Ricardo Clark 1+ for Eintracht

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, ah

Hey, Bob, maybe you should think about not starting Ricardo red card in 2006, poor marking in 2010 Clark!!!


What's up with Internet Explorer booting me out of the site at every opportunity? Am, I old, outdated, out of touch? Ugh.

I want a job like Freddy where you get paid but don't have to actually work.

"... AC Milan's 2-0 loss at Cesena..." What has happened to the once great AC Milan?

Posted by: Rand-al-Thor | September 13, 2010 8:32 AM | Report abuse

Freddy has been assigned a number.


I kid you not.

Reposting re Hope Solo:

Wondering if any Insider fans will be defending Hope Solo after her latest tirade, this time via twitter? I didn't see the Freedom game so maybe she is right about the refs (Lord knows I'm always one to criticize the refs) but she clearly hasn't learned to control her temper in public. But since she says she won't be playing in the league anymore I guess that won't be a problem.

A lot of people (mostly men) defender her after trashing Scurry in the World Cup, and she obviously has not learned to show class in public. Mia Hamm had a notoriously bad temper too but she kept it under wraps in public. Hope Solo could learn something from her.

As always, our midfield looks well stocked and our defense and offense looks awfully sad.

Good thing we have 4 years and at least a few prospects that might develop into something. Right now LeToux is looking good comparitively.

What she said about Scurry in the WWC was accurate but should not have been said publicly.

I was at the game Saturday and I don't think her accusations have merit. That said, the red did change the game, and I was not well-positioned to see that call. Don't think Hope was either. And I'm sure she couldn't see the Atlanta goal that was called back.

To me, this incident speaks to a different issue. What good is Twitter? Is there any good reason why a professional athlete needs to tweet? It seems to me that the practice is at best neutral, and usually reveals far more about the tweety-bird than we would really like to know.

Really disappointed in Adu. I hoped that he would mature and become a factor for the next world cup. It's still early, but no signs of progress.

I think Aris Europa cup game is on Goltv this week.(?) Guess we'll see whether he cracks the line up.

Also, getting a bit concerned about Onyewu and the lack of playing time. Maybe he's still not 100%. However, you get the feeling that he's going to have to leave ACMilan to get PT.

Adu isn't on their Europa roster.

My point exactly. She hasn't learned to keep stuff behind closed doors and she is again making herself look like an immature brat full of sour grapes. She had another series of rants Aug 4. Even if she was 100% in the right, there are better ways to communicate that.

Tweeting can be a good tool but like anything else folks have to learn that it is a public forum, just like saying something on TV. She hasn't matured enough to use it, I think.

AC Milan kept Ronaldinho, and added Ibrahimovic and Robinho to play alongside young Pato.

So they are back to being a mega-club.

They just forgot to tell their lowly opponent Cesena.

It's more rope for an emotional player to hang herself with. If the twitts are inflammatory, they generate publicity.

Anyone remember Ching's punishment for twitting that Houston was robbed. IIRC, he watched the match on TV while on MNT service.
