    The Carlos Tevez saga continues with the guy traveling to Argentina without permission. Man City is now talking to their lawyers. Is Tevez just so full of himself he just cannot pass a single week without doing all he can to ruin his own career or is he that clueless?

    Today the playoff round for the final four spots for Euro 2012 starts and the 2nd leg will be on the 15th. My vote goes to Portugal, Rep of Ireland, Turkey and Czech Rep. to make it to 2012.

    CONCACAF WC qualifying this weekend saw Canada moving to the next round. T&T does not move on after losing to Guyana.

    Neither does Haiti after losing to Antigua & Barbuda (sp). Haiti lost 1-0 on a horrid mistake by their goalkeeper 8 minutes from time. A & B now moves on to play in a semi-final group with Jamaica, Guatemala & the USA.

    Good luck to them.

    Bob Bradley's first game in charge of Egypt resulted in a 2-0 loss to Brazil. Not an unexpected result, it is Brazil after all but he better start winning soon.

    The fact that they actually won & by scoring 3 goals in 1 game (they'd score 2 in the prior 5 or 6 games).

    Sepp Blatter is in all kinds of hot water because of controversal comments he made about racism and some are openly calling for him to resign. That is not going to happen and FIFA has sunk even lower (if that is possible) in the opinion of fans.

    Blatter's response that racism should be met with a shaking of hands deserves derision. But much like the ISU, FIFA is so inbred with cronyism that it's impossible to move them out, no matter how deserved.

    Well, my LA Galaxy closed the deal with a 1-0 win tonight. Should have been 4-0 (thanks for nothin' Adam Cristman) but we are very happy with our third MLS Cup!

    You forgot the asst ref that called an offside on the Galaxy's Robbie Keane just before Landon Donovan scored the game winner. Replays showed there was no offside. Keane was even with the next to last man when the ball was passed to him. Fortunately Donovan's goal made the error moot.

    Watched the game live. The 4-0 sounds about right. Still, a 1-0 win beats a loss anytime. Congrats to you, the Galaxy and MLS. It was a great night for the beautiful sport in LA last night.

    Beckham's future club is doing very well. Leading CSKA 1-0 on an own goal. LOL

    Lille? Thought it was PSG.

    Becks is playing it close to the vest on where he'll go next. Seems to imply he may stay. Or not...;)

    Nope the tv says Lille. And why is the french coach shouting so much? He should be a lot happier than that or is that how he always looks when he is happy?! :lol:

    Doumba's suspension rrrrrrreally hurt the Russians. Looks like it will end 0-2. Now hopefully I can see Man U v Benfica with better results for Man U than for CSKA.

    Man U tied 2-2 with Benfica and Man City lost 2-1 to Napoli. A bummer day overall for the EPL. :(

    Arsenal just became the only EPL team to win their CL match thanks in large part to Van Persie. They are doing well now it would seem. The CL looks to have all four English teams make the next round.

    Move aside Barca, Man U, Inter et al! Here comes American Samoa! :rofl: The US territory is last in FIFA's rankings and holds that spot without despute. They once lost a match against Australia 31-0! :D But today they just won their first match in nearly two decades by beating Tonga 2-1 and they right now feel as if they won the world cup itself. It was their first win in 30 tries. LOL

    You were right as usual! It is indeed PSG. But I am hoping he gets sent to Japan or Australia or someplace as far away as possible. LOL I am so tired of him.

    Word is that PSG is offering Becks 17.9 mil over 18 months. I doubt the Galaxy can match that. With that said, i do believe that David, Posh and the kids do actually love living in SoCal, so that may influence their decision.

    Fact is, David had a fantastic season, playing some of his best footie in many years. And we'd love to have him back. :cool:

    I forgot about this thread in here - as I'm a huge footie fan (LFC & Wolves).. just wanted to add that I loved watching this game and was so pleased for LA Galaxy - I try and catch the games in Toronto when I can.. I really hope the league continues to grow and perhaps increases the skill level - as it was really obvious in this game - who the cream of the crop were..:shuffle: Lucky it was just 1 goal - with a better player to finish the excellent plays could have been 3 or 4..:shuffle:
