Why bother with Adu? not a player - a sitter

You forgot the rest of Gooch's stats. Not in the 18, but 1-0 in Ultimate fighting.

Adu doesn't even sit these days. He's not even in Europe.

A strong weekend for ASPA.

At least our midfielders do well... Strikers abroad leave a bit to be desired

I've wondered why include Guzan if Friedel played. I know that Steve does it for consistency, but it's only noteworthy if Friedel gets subbed out, and when has that ever happened?

Ryan Miller 90 minutes in Halmstads' 2:0 away victory over Djurgardens in the Swedish Allsvenskan season finale. Miller had two key stops in the penalty area in the final minutes of the game. Halmstads finish in 12th place, safely out of the relegation zone. Alejandro Bedoya's Orebro finish third in the table, and will play in the Europa League next summer.

It's cold in Stockholm 35 degrees at gametime -- time to shut down the league for the winter.

Pachuca's win over Queretaro was important. With one game left in the regular season Pachuca has moved into 8th place which would get them into the playoffs (if they hang on to the spot).

Some in Mexico thought it would be embarassing if they completely missed out on the postseason since Pachuca is going to the World Club Championship as CONCACAf's rep next month.

I seem to remember EJ making the 18, actually.

I'm confused. What's 35 degrees in Celsius? And how dare you suggest a winter break.

Eurosnob: 35 F is not quite 2 C. The ball is going to start freezing soon.

Besides, November is when bandy season starts. Time to flood all the pitches and play some bandy! Bandy is the greatest game in the world. It's like soccer and hockey got married and produced a beautiful child.
