Woot! How convient that there happens to be college basketball on at 6 a.m. today.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Team||
I am excited for the season but I don't really have a favorite Premier League team. I use to have a least favorite: Manchester City. I like them more now that they are partnering with an MLS team and are supposidly going to be loaning some good young players over here though. So now I just root for teams with Americans on them.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Bottom line||
Anyone catch what just scrolled on the bottom line? They listed 4 defenders including Cameron 5 Mids including Johnson and Dempsey as the lone forward. Don't know if that is updated or wrong but its interesting.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||4-3-3||
4-3-3 apparently. Cameron on the right side of midfield per ussoccer twitter.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||4-2-3-1||
I know it isn't ideal to shuffle around a lot of players but I wonder if this might work:
Johnson is one of our most dangerous players going forward but only average defensively, so why not put him at left mid for this game so he can get forward and take advantage of Coentrao's absense and not have to try to defend against Ronaldo. Putting Cameron at right back, where he played all year in the EPL, seems like a much better option defensively against Ronaldo and Brooks seems like a viable option at center back after the Ghana game.
Its not ideal having Besler-Brooks as your center back pairing with the lack of experience but I am really worried Johnson at right back both that he won't be able to get involved offensively and that he might get abused defensively.

That was a horrible period. I really miss Zetterberg.

Goaltending duels are excellent as well. The best kind of hockey though is overtime playoff hockey. I am so happy we are about to see some.
|1 year 1 week ago||Excellent||
This is a very entertaining game, Pitt and Cbus isn't too shabby either. What a great start to the playoffs!

People love to hate the best.
|1 year 1 week ago||Montreal||
Just scored a shorty as well. Crazy. 2-2 now in that game.
|1 year 1 week ago||Another pp for Pitt||
Maybe both teams will score during this one too.
Edit: Ok I guess just the one team will score. This game changed quickly.
|1 year 1 week ago||Shorty!||
Columbus goes up 3-1, wow.
|1 year 1 week ago||GOAL||
1-0 Tampa early, the home crowd is loving it.
Edit: 1-1 Montreal scores about 15 seconds later.
|1 year 1 week ago||How about||
Jack MF Johnson. I agree though, Columbus is certainly not the exciting team in the league.

That entrance was...something. I don't know what is stranger, the bus thing or the fact that all the players/coaches kind of end up running onto the field individually.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Watching Toronto-Montreal||
Pretty entertaining game so far, 2-1 Habs with 6 minutes to go in the first. After watching for a few minutes it dawned on me that these teams are now in the wings division and I have been smiling ever since.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||The "ones" on defense||
According to Dienhart's article at btn.com
Line: Tom Strobel; Chris Wormley (who is a specimen); Quinton Washington; Frank Clark. Linebackers, Joe Bolden; James Ross; Secondary, Blake Countess; Thomas Gordon; Jarrod Wilson; Courtney Avery; Raymon Taylor.
Obvious ommision is Desmond Morgan, not sure if that is worth reading into or not.

According to 247 stallworth also committed to state today.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Holden||
Not sure where you found that but according to US soccer's twitter Holden is starting, not Diskerud.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||USA!||
I am looking forward to this and expecting more fireworks from Donovan today. Bold prediction: the US scores more goals today then Michigan gets commits from the BBQ this weekend.

From my good old home town cider mill, Uncle John's. Now if I only had some donuts to go with it...
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Wondo||
I was questioning the decision to have Wondolowski in the starting line up but I suppose I can't complain about a first half hat trick.
|1 year 42 weeks ago||Six!!!||
Wow. Can't wait for the gold cup!
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Wow||
What a game, I was really hoping it would go to extra time just because it was so entertaining.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||GOALLLLLL||
BVB scores on a penalty!

RVP wins it on a free kick in stoppage time after City had tied it with 5 minutes to go, wow.
