It's hard not to like Dempsey.

Except when he flops 25 yards out

but Suarez is a disgrace am I right?

but Liverpool didn't lose because Dempsey flopped. they lost because part of their strategy is missing wide open nets.

You lose when you dont score more than your opponent.

Thats how Newcastle loses at least. They dont have the defense to force forwards to dive. They just skip right on through.

Nah, not quite. He doesn't have anywhere near the reputation for dirty play.

A lot of players dive. Not a lot of players have done some of the things Suarez has done.

True. To compare Dempsey and Suarez is ridiculous. Talent-wise, that is.

Fair enough, but still Avery is nowhere near Dempsey's actual skill level.

A lot of players do dive. But that doesn't make it any less aggravating.

Fellaini is unreal, if we're still talking about in the hole players better than Dempsey.

Sorry, brit.

Three points in the bag and more signs of progress from LFC today. Not the most inspiring of victories, but there was definitely quality in the side today in what was largely a dominating performance. It's just that issue of finishing again, especially considering they score one goal after getting over 20 quality chances on net.

Oh, well, a win's a win, and the Reds continue their run of only one loss in their last ten League matches.

Manchester United up 4-3 and its only the 35th Minute



Edit : RVP shoots and the ball completely crosses the line, no goal was allowed. Should be 5-3

You mean to tell me Man United got screwed out of goal? I'm sure football fans everywhere are outraged about this.

What has Suarez done that the likes of Gareth Bale and Phil Neville didn't do this year? While playing Liverpool?

When Suarez dives, it's a disgrace and cause for outrage.

When Bale or Neville dive, it's suddenly not a disgrace and everyone stays quiet. (But then again, Bale and Neville are English so I'm sure many of the powers that be are more willing to turn a blind eye.)

As a Liverpool supporter, I don't condone Suarez' antics, but for ****'s sake, when other players do that same ****, I want to see something done about that, as well. The hypocrisy is amazing. Suarez is the only player who can do any wrong. It's a ****ing joke.

Its not his diving that bugs me. I can't speak for others on that. It is his history.

His incidents (multiple) with Evra.

His World Cup display of sportmanship against Ghana.

I can't remember a player with the same kind of rap sheet.

MLS Cup final today at 430 on espn. Rematch of last year. Should be a good game. Beckhams last game in MLS and could be the same for Donovan and Keane. I actually see Houston taking this one. They play as an impressive, cohesive unit and have momentum. I love Davis and Garcia.
