Whoops guess I missed it
They made so many changes this off season that it will take some time to come together and play at a consistently high level. Plus this off season was only stage 1. They will continue to spend money and build up that team for the long haul.
It would be cool, but they would not do well. They don't even do well in CONCACAF's Champions League.
Man U's back line may not be up to the task, either. Vidic is coming back from his ACL injury last season. Ferdinand is a year older and tends to get nicked up. I don't think much of either Rafael or Evra at the fullback position. City has the edge at goalie.
During a long seasons lots of things are going to happen that change the fortunes of every team. We may have already seen one yesterday with the injury to Aguero who will now miss a few weeks.
i swear, every time man u is down in an EPL game, they get like 5 minutes of injury time!
LEO MESSI’S ADIDAS F50 MICOACH STATS
Since the miCoach launched on football boots nearly 10 months ago, adidas have been slowly feeding us information gathered the cleats from top players – with Dani Alves’ el Clasico performance being the most notable.
Now, adidas have finally given us the stats we’ve all been waiting for, as they give us an insight into Leo Messi’s miCoach data.
Gathered during Argentina’s 3-1 win over Germany in Frankfurt last week, the data captured by the Speed_Cell in Leo Messi’s F50 adiZero football boots offers a fascinating insight into the in’s and out’s of a match for a professional footballer.
thats pretty cool! soccer players arent great athletes my ***!
I went to an MLS game a couple of months ago and yeah it is pretty pedestrian next to other world soccer.
yup, its probably no better than a third tier league, but most teams are closer to a fourth tier.
id rank the world leagues...
EPL, La Liga, Serie A
Bundesliga and other top euro leagues, plus the argentine and brazilian leagues.
lower euro leagues (like eastern euro countries) and mexican league.
i dont think most MLS teams are in any of those 3 tiers.
I find MLS unwatchable... I'd rather watch the womens national team.
if its the top teams in the league its bearable. specially if the games are in seattle or portland!
Great win for Everton! Maybe they challenge for a Champions League bid this year?
Don't forget, Champions League tomorrow and Wednesday!
Yeah I caught the last 20 minutes...loved it!
Enough of this EPL nonsense. Helsingborg v Glasgow Celtic in Champions League qualifier first leg in Sweden in about 10 minutes.
Come on you Bhoys in green!!!
well, they got off to a good start!
SPL is about as relevant as MLS.
I dont know - I'd really have to be hard up for some futbol....
Even the mans national team, they are some players that are just hard to watch.
Landon is practically the only one thats worth a dam.
Brags vs Udinese tomorrow. I'll be watching Di Natale...
A bad missed offsides call lets Chelsea get a win. The Blues played very well in the first third and last third of the game, but got outplayed in the middle third portion by Reading. Hazard has already earned his paycheck for the season. He is a dynamic player. Chelsea have the potential to be a potent offense. They just need to gel together to perfect the final touches and shots in the opponents box.
Some Europa League action today.
Liverpool vs Hearts on Fox Soccer
Red Star Belgrade vs Bordeaux on Beinsports.
Call wasn't as terrible as broadcast made it out to be. He was offsides by a split second.
Chelsea is likely still adding in the 9 days til transfer window closes. Cav, Victor Moses, Hulk, Schurlle all possibilities.
Hazard is a dynamic young player ... as is Oscar. Bright future for that pair in Chelsea blue.
Torres has been an issue so he may well transfer out by next year.
awesome! about time we got a real soccer thread going around here..
Im a liverpool fan-holy heck! we are HORRENDOUS!!!!!
get me Dempsey
