He's good at that.

Like a $10,000 a night prostitute, he does what he gets paid to do very well.

Nice fan reaction in the end zone - looks like a Justin Beiber show just broke out.

Where's Buddle's goal - that was even sicker.

Unlike a $10,000 a night prostitute, during his job, he only does one thing very well

Good goal, no doubt. But, the goalie might want to rethink how he sets up a wall. He had no view of that ball.

I'm not sure how you guys know about $10K/night prostitutes, but if you have that kind of cash, consider buying a local soccer team.

1. There are probably very few people who can testify with certainty about the capabilities or performance of a $10,000 per night prostitute. I suspect that if such a price exists, it is paid as much for discretion and freedom from disease as it is for technique. I would ask Eliot Spitzer.

2. Beckham can deliver a soccer ball with more accuracy using his leg than most NFL quarterbacks can deliver a football using their arm. The entire game changes when he steps on the field, at least in MLS.

OT, which is more annoying, the eternal Economist pop-up ads on Soccer Insider, or the endless loop Pepsi commercial with the truck drivers on ESPN?

Everyone knows you're not paying for the act... you're paying for them to leave when you're finished with them.

It's one thing to bend a ball and get it on frame. It's another to bend it with the type of pace that Beckham gets behind his shot. Very impressive.

OWNTF, I think we're heading into the golden era of Web-based ads...and it's gonna be awful.

I'd imagine 10k pays for cleanliness too. Judging by that dude's hair, that's something they're not paying for.

Sunday was a great day for free kicks with the Alex one against Arsenal as well. I wonder which ball was going faster, Beck's or Alex's? Both were bullets.

Posted by: tcbannon | October 4, 2010 11:02 AM | Report abuse

Alex's was going much faster. watch them again.

The fewer games that nimrod plays, the safer the world's midfielders will be.

And this coming from a big fan of Dutch soccer.

Alex had a harder shot. Looking forward to the Philly/LA game.

Here's the Alex goal:

So, how do you compare $10,000 a night prostitutes?

with all the emphasis FIFA put on stamping out that type of challenege (over the ball, top of the ankle), you'd think the guy would have been handed a suspension of some sort by now. by my count, hes broken 2 legs in the past 6 months with the same tackle, and received 1 yellow card.

So glad about De Jong being dropped.

Really enjoyed the SuperClassico (haha) last night. Both teams played exciting soccer.

You know the game is broken when dead-ball plays get this much attention. It's sad.

Please keep him far far away from Najar

OWNTF dropping hot fire, per usual.

Alex's was harder and right through the gap while Beck's was curvier and tantalizingly within reach (end the innuendo).

Posted by: tcbannon | October 4, 2010 1:50 PM | Report abuse

Bored at work. I just rewatched both shots a few times. Alex's had more swerve so I guess he is the $11,000 a night winner.

Posted by: tcbannon | October 4, 2010 2:00 PM | Report abuse

De Jong is a thug! Atkinson (the referee) should have his eyes and head checked. He did not even called a foul. What a disgrace!
At least the Dutch Manager Van Mawick is showing some decency and dropping De Jong from the National team. I bet the FA will not punish him though!
