Is yellow card accumulation the dumbest rule in sports? Imagine if in hockey a guy misses a game automatically if he gets 5 double minors throughout a year.

Either way kinda funny to see 2 Kansas City players have 5 yellows 11 games in.

East is already pretty much down to a 4 team race 1/3rd of the way in

Referee in the Spurs/Sunderland game is clearly in on the Arsenal-for-Champion's-League thing.

Arsenal trolls the EPL again lol. And the announcers are making fun over Arsenal whooping it up over finishing 4th but I can understand it, they wanted to keep the Champions League streak alive just like Detroit with their playoff streak this year.

And not that the game really matters but wow at Man U blowing a three-goal lead with ten minutes left in Sir Alex's final game.

Precisely. Nobody is really happy with the continued lack of hardware, but at least Arsenal made it into the Champions League again.

And they'll underperform it again because they see it as a paycheck and not an actual competition

Seventh place and 61 points.

Meh.

Well, at least there's plenty of promise for next season. YNWA.

Great day to be at RBA. The place was packed and the atmosphere was awesome. A stoppage time winner from Timmy Cahill!!!

This team has fully bought into Petke's personality and they look for real this season.

I got Mike Magee's unused jersey from yesterday and it's small on me somehow. Dude needs to lift.

Champions League for Arsenal is huge for next season. Obviously being in the CL is one thing but it allows them to attract more players than if they were in the Europa League instead. Guys like Higuain, Jovetic, and Rooney are all rumoured around Arsenal and being in the CL next year is one step in having a better chance at landing one or more of those players, or other big names.

I highly highly doubt that Manchester United sell Rooney to another team in the BPL. Top teams rarely do that. I do think he will leave, but I believe it will be PSG or Bayern

The team finally has a coach that the players respect and enjoy playing for. Before warmups you can here the team goofing around playing soccer tennis (there was a video on it a couple weeks ago on the team site) in the locker room from the hallway. Definitely a more relaxed and more connected team than last year. If the key pieces stay healthy they are capable of winning any game

Really interested to see what kind of team comes out for the US Open next week. I think they make an actual attempt to win it this year.
