    8-Feb: I was wrong, I have something to do this weekend

    Not Kepa’s (poor Willy) starting position for Martial’s header was weird-guy -backup Sunday League. The only reason you’re that far near post is if you have a death bet with somebody that no commentator will ever accuse you of giving up the short side.

    Maguire should have a long spell off the pitch. I’ve said before that I thought he makes bad decisions. Now he’s just a dumb player without a modicum of self control.

    8-Feb: I was wrong, I have something to do this weekend

    A couple of things... First, thank you for pointing that out. I don’t think most folks have any idea how difficult it is to catch a hard shot, especially with the modern ball. It’s a simple physics equation, but the human body isn’t really built for it. The amount of energy that has to be...

    Man City banned from Champions League for next two seasons

    The FA could address this by docking City points now so the FIFA process is a moot point. Granted, that’s just biased wishcasting on my part...

    Just saw a replay. I'm typically right with you on most things footy, but I'm breaking here. I was prepared to enjoy spitting on Maddison again as I'm not a big fan, but a red would have been incredibly harsh. View: https://streamja.com/6OrV

    Man City banned from Champions League for next two seasons

    I have a ton of thoughts and feelings, but this is the one nearest and dearest. Sarri has been a disaster. It takes a lot to make this Juventus side not run away with the title, but he's done a fantastic job so far. The only positive I can take from his reign is that he managed to keep Dybala...

    Goalie Training Suggestions

    Really, one of the biggest things is on your shoulders. Learning if he has the desire to shoulder the pressure is something that you should be monitoring. Does he dwell on mistakes? Does he get angry at teammates? Neither are necessarily disqualifying and older keepers will develop techniques to...

    Major League Soccer Offseason 2019-20: Zlexit

    Inter Miami lost a trademark case to Internationale. Hopefully this will put an end to the asinine club naming. There's no reason that MLS can't come up with unique and powerful identifiers without hitching their wagons to foreign clubs.

    Liverpool 2019-2020: Let's Talk About Six, Baby

    I think what would be best for Salah this summer is to play with the U23s in the Olympics. These guys can't catch a break without getting injured, and if they don't get a break through being injured then they, uh, get injured.

    Should I start a GoFundMe for a kit that actually fits Jon Moss?

    20 minutes in and my chief observation is that Billing is a gigantic diver (literally and figuratively).

    View: https://streamja.com/ppb9 Emre Can is absolutely lethal at looking fantastic early on with his new team, then forgetting how to play. He’s done it to Liverpool and Juventus, and it looks like he’s on his way to doing it for Dortmund.

    Arlo and Lee must be wondering why they have to do B&H vs. Watford instead of having the weekend off.

    “Today” :D You could argue he’s lucky to have one, given his recent record and the fact it took a complicit goalkeeper.

    Henderson’s wife just popped, 9 months and a day after the CL Final. Salah’s went 9 months and a day after they beat Barca.

    At this point I wouldn’t be surprised to see Richarlson hit the deck if a ball boy tosses it back to him a little too hard. His extra-curricular shit stirring is certainly approaching Danny Rose levels. Next stop, Diego Costa!

    Horrible shot, worse goalkeeping. When you’re that desperate, anything will do.
