Bob Bradley is now the NT coach for Egypt. Good luck to him and to Egypt. I would love to see both back at the World Cup.

The rumors about this have been flying around for awhile. Good luck to BB. He may need it.

Man U and Basel ended in a 3-3 tie but let me tell you that was one heck of a game! And for a minute there it looked like Basel was gonna pull off the upset! But my boys left it waaay too close. LOL Basel deserved something from the match so I am not gonna begrudge them the tie. Inter also won 3-2 at away at CSKA.

Controversy over Clarlos Tevez and his alleged refusal to play for Man City during their CL loss to Bayern Munich yesterday. Mancini says he will never play for Man City again and Tevez for his part has apologized but denied refusing to play.

Nothing too surprising happened yesterday except Valencia tied Chelsea 1-1. Messi is now tied for Barca's second all time scorer and I am sure given his young age he will be number one before long. I just wonder where was all this prowess on the field when it is time to play for Argentina's NT.

David De Gea Man U's new goalie was caught stealing and eating a donut at Tesco but was let off with just a warning. Some thought he got off too easy. But why would someone worth so many millions steal a donut worth £1.19?!

Italy and England joins the other nations already in Euro 2012.

Just saw one of the funniest sports news bit I have ever seen. hehehe It concerned the game between N. Ireland and Andorra. The stadium is discribed as beautiful but seat only 850 people and it is no guarantee that the game will be sold out because Andora's 87,000 population seems to care very little. LOL A stadium that holds 850 people! hehehe

USA 1 v 0 Honduras in front of 21,000 + at the stadium of many names in Miami Gardens/Aventura. Game was played in a tropical monsoon that, along with Yom Kippur, probably held the attendance down a bit.
Klinsi's 1st win as the main man. Here's hoping for many more.

USA missed TWO easy goals and a couple of other good chances. This game could easily been 4 or 5 - 0. Saw some good stuff, despite the monsoon. Jozy played very well, and even good ol' DeMarcus Beasley was dangerous. But the midfield was pretty poor most of the game and that limited the USA's chances.

Euro qualifying is on right now and I'm watching Belgium v German. Belgium is putting up a sprited fight but Germany is clearly the better team and leads 3-0.
10-11-2011, 08:57 PM
Poor little country, we could have let them win. But Germany now won all ten of their 10 qualifying games, pretty impressive.

EDIT: Equaliser!!! France would qualify directly with that. Let's just hope they can hold on to that for the next 10 minutes.

It seems France did indeed hold on to the draw, Italy, Spain, Russia, Greece, Turkey, Israel, Croatia and Rep of Ireland were all winners today as well. Sweden beat the Dutch to qualify as the best runners up while Turkey, Croatia, Czech Rep will all go to the play offs.

USA 0 v 1 Ecuador
Discouraging game. USA still can't score, 2 goals in 5 games since Klinsmann took over, and gives up a goal that should not have happened late in the game to lose once again. We are now 1 win, 1 tie, and 3 losses during Klinsmann's reign. Hopefully he'll find some magic for us soon. As one of the announcers said tonight that if he's using the best players we have in our player pool the USA is in deep trouble. We simply are not that good. Pathetic on the attack and not deep enough on defense to sub out any old timers. I hope we make it to Brazil 2014, but if we continue the way we're going we may very well not be there.
We'll see what gives in June.

Carlos Tevez have returned to training albeit by himself apart from the rest of the team. Man City have said that it is doubtfull he will ever play with the team again and does still face a desciplinary hearing. And in WC qualifiers, Venezuela beat Argentina.
Striker Liker! I like that. hehehe
