LA in it's current form would go down without question.

Quite delighted to see Cardiff in the premiership next season. It'll be great to see two Welsh clubs in the top flight. Their games vs Swansea will be great.

RB playing some really quality attacking soccer that half. Pains me to see how good the team is when on,yet has so little success overall.

Maybe Kaka will be the final missing piece this summer.

Hehe. Seriously though, I love Suarez- without him LFC would be in the bottom half of the table.

This Gotze deal is a prime example of why I prefer the parity of MLS.

Dortmund has a great youth program...look at some of the talent they have in Reus, Gundogan, Hummels, Santana, Lewandowski, and Bender, yet because Gotze wants to go to a "top team."

The have-nots develop players and then sell them to the financial haves. Dortmund should be considered a "have," they are in the final four for UEFA and I think have a genuine shot at it. Yet players leave as they enter their prime to go to the big name.

I agree. On a similar and related note, I'm terrified as a Spurs fan of Bale leaving this summer.

Happens every year. Bayern doesn't buy to improve. They buy to weaken their competition, who have a lot less money. Not even the first Mario

Just another on the list of teams that haven't used Podolski properly. He's a LM in a 4-5-1. Not a LW in a 4-3-3, not a center forward.

Bayern and Arsenal now on my naughty list for misusing the player.

Lewandowski with 4 goals against Real. Insanity.

This is was a case of superb finishing. How many times do you see players get 4-5 chances a game and squander all of them. Lew scored on all his chances. Real looked confused and out of place. Lacking pace and conviction.

The Bundesliga and German national team never get the sort of love-attention here in the states that the EPL and La Liga do. I don't know if it is because most of our European football coverage comes via England, and England dislikes Germany, or what it might be.

It will be one fun final.

It's because English and Spanish are the two most spoken languages in America. Although English is a bastardization of the German language anyway.

Just a mere formality, Dortmund & Munich are in the final.
