Disappointed we will have to wait until next week to see Bradley.

This Liverpool game is terribly boring. Awful. Not a good start to the day for sports. Hope Inter v Roma will be better.

Joe Corona? Sounds like manna from heaven for an advertiser.... A "golden" win over Doradas.

Goff's twitter has news from Chuck Blazer that the Gold Cup (Copa do Oro) opener will be at the Cowboy's stadium. Hope they're planning to schedule Mexico, or there will be 80,000 empty seats.

Corona has a nice ring to it.

Oh hush, you knew it was coming.

Nice weekend for Americans in Mexico, after barely being able to sniff the pitch the last couple of weeks. Castillo also got the start for Puebla, and ESPN Gamecast credited Jonny B. with the assist on Tigres' first goal, but that can be pretty unreliable.

Also worth noting that a hamstring strain is what's keeping Spector out of West Ham's 18, and that Starikov scored in a friendly for Zenit (on Thursday or Friday, not sure).

Yes, not a lot of impressive play between Liverpool/Chelsea. Very tough place for away teams. The lone goal was more a lowlight on Chelsea'a part than a highlight for Liverpool.

At least it turned out right.

Who is Joe Corona? Also, I becoming less and less impressed with the play in Mexico. Especially the more MLS washouts head south.

He's like Joe Camel, but with a necrotic liver instead of emphysema.

Was hoping Bradley would have snuck in that line-up despite his very recent arrivel at Villa.

I'll give it time since the transfer was recent, but Adu not in starting 18 for div. 2 Turkish club?

Posted by: nairbsod | February 6, 2011 6:50 PM | Report abuse

Apparently, you won't give it time.

May I add: Sheesh! He only arrived there the day before the game. Maybe, you;ll give them time to find a jersey that fits? Maybe even allow him to practice with the team and learn a few key Turkish words like "Man on", "Yours", "Mine", "Go".

Just sayin'....

For those of you that get GolTV, they have a very entertaining new show. It is a thirty minute highlight show that shows the fifty best goals of the month on GolTV. Moves real quick. Worth a monthly look.

Buddle had the assist on the goal in Ingolstadt's win.

fischy - relax - I should have added "is there a reason why he wasn't at least on the bench?" Thanks for the info about getting there the day before the game - that explains it.

Bornstein provided the assist on the first goal to Mancilla. It was a pass from the left outside of the goal box into the middle.

Bornstein is being played out of his natural position; he's playing as a left sided defensive midfielder (one of the 2 middle guys). Most of what he does is to plug the holes and get into clever scoring positions. He's gotten excellent chances to score in the past 2 games but missed due to luck.

Joe Corona has a Knack for soccer. Joeeeee Corona.

"learn a few key Turkish words like "Man on", "Yours", "Mine", "Go"."

LOL. Why bother? He's going to be in Manchester or Madrid next year, right? Actually the odds that he'll do any of these are about the same. First things first, he has to learn "Pizza", "Sausage", "I don't feel like it", and "my teammates all suck."

I enjoyed the Super Bowl yesterday but at almost 4 hours I was flagging toward the end - even with the game's outcome still in doubt.

That has nothing to do with soccer but I do look forward to supporting a team whose games almost always end within 2 hours of the opening kickoff.

How many more days til DC United's opening game?

You forgot "the coach hates Americans" and "Don't you know who I am?"

DCU up 5-0 over Canada U20s. Ngwneya with a hat-trick, followed by a goal by Davies. Najar comes on in the second half ant tallies the fifth.

Oooooh Canada!

Davies goes 74' (Pontius in) and scores (Bosko assist).

With that result, I'm clearing my calendar for MLS Cup XVI and USOC XCVII.
