Well the Milan/Juve game today should be another step towards goal line technology...

So Arsenal was down 2-0 at home and is now up 5-2. Anyone want to give me odds on a 5-5 finish?

An on form Rosicky is such a difference maker for the Gunners. Too bad he is about as fragile as Mike Green.

Fra-gee-lay. That must be Czech...

Well that goal has been coming for a while now. I didn't see Skrtel getting it though...

Man...after watching a lot of EPL, La Liga, and Champions league this year for the first time, it's even more painful to watch the US style of play and lack of quality.

Howard and Dempsey have played together many times...

I would argue that Landon Donovan is a better player than Howard. Not that Howard is not a great goaltender, but GKs are something the United States has never seemed to lack. It's the other 10 positions on the field we struggle with.

I'm just giving you a hard time. Donovan is probably the best player on the team, but I can never get myself to like him. Dempsey is just so much easier to root for, if you ignore his insane godliness. Howard is much more likable as well.

Yeah if this game was played with 1 field player and 10 goaltenders the US would dominate...

Is the Borini about to come on the former Chelsea Youth product? Still can't believe we sold him. Such a talent. Would rather have him out there these days than Malouda or Torres.

Man, what is it with Chelsea and older top strikers whose careers seem to basically end there? Shevchenko, Torres..

Dunno, maybe it's the English soccer.. so frenetic and high-pressure that losing even half a step and a bit of confidence results in a death spiral even if you have all the tactical sense and skill and pedigree in the world.

Sheva used to be a cold blooded executioner in Milan. Torres seemed absolutely brilliant in Liverpool, just out-willing the defense time after time.

Pity..

Nice. I should tune in more often, kind of curious whether there's some significant difference under Klinsmann.

Well pre Abramovich Chelsea was where top continental, especially Serie A, players came for a nice EPL payday and to see out their careers.

Gullit, Vialli, Petrescu, Zola, Di Matteo, and the list goes on...

And we were silly enough to put Suarez in the same conversation at the start of the season. RvP showed the difference today scoring his 2 chances while Suarez made a mess out of his.

Mess out of his? He had one clear chance and it hit the post.

Yawn. It will be funny when he leaves this summer for a club with real ambition and chances to win trophies.
