Like most other soccer fans in this country, there’s really only one thing on my mind today—the match at the Azteca this afternoon. I decided to watch ESPN last night just to see if there was anything and, as I figured it would be ignored, I could get my mind off the match and probably be put to sleep by endless Baseball and NFL training camp news. (I didn’t expect Rick Pitino to be the main event)

I’ve really done my best to keep quiet here and leave my comments to simple tweets letting the media do must of the story telling. After all, it appears you, your ‘people’ and those in charge at AC Milan seemed to negotiate your end of the deal to stay in Italy via that medium. However, now that you’ve finally come on US TV and told your story to us (remember us, the LA fans?) I just have to vent a bit.

What’s with this Beckham guy …
Well, it seems a few things have happened in the last few days. Guess I should catch up a bit.
The big news, for LA fans, is that Fish will be returning. LA fans are split by this move. They either love or hate it. I’m in the camp that believes no one is going to want to face the three-headed monster of Becks, Donovan and Fish. Of course, that assumes they aren’t injured and Fish doesn’t keep tripping over the lines marking the penalty area. …
In 2000 Ipswich finally reached the EPL via the playoffs after several years heartbreak. They did this under the guidance of George Burley who’d been in charge at Portman Road for over five years and a squad of players who reminded fairly much the same season-to-season by selling only a couple of players to bigger clubs (like Keiron Dyer to Newcastle) to insure the bills get paid. Their first season back in the EPL Ipswich finished fifth and qualified for the UEFA Cup. This again was done with much the …
It’s been an interesting week on the MLS Coaching front. Of course, LA now have a Dutch coach….a coach who I idolized as a player. The guy was awesome. My hope is that he can introduce Total Football to the HDC.
I was fortunate enough to group up in the Total Football heyday. While I lived on the other side of the North Sea, Bobby Robson had brought a taste of Total Football to Suffolk in the late 80’s when he signed Arnold Murhen and Franz Thijssen. The think of love …
It’s been a day now since I heard about Yallop’s departure from the HDC. I still think it’s a mistake to let him go. Now, I’m afraid the AEG brain trust will make an even bigger mistake. Seriously, Queiroz did an awful job with the Metros. Why would he do any better in LA? Am I missing something here? Personally, I’m on a one-man crusade to see Cienfuego at the helm. I’m not even sure “Cien” would be interested, but who else is there that is …
Lalas should have done everything in his power to prevent this.
Instead, it now looks like he did everything in his power to make this happen. The worst bit is the SJ will now get him.
Like I said, Huge Mistake!
UPDATE: It looks like Arena is gone too. Silly me, I was sure Colorado would be the first to make changes in that Department.

It’s Midnight, my team is losing and not looking like they’ll do anything except give up a couple more goals in the second half so rather than be a zombie the next day at work, I decide to go to bed. I guess I missed a good second half. Or at least a valiant effort. My Twitter on the right gives a taste of my thought process at the time.
What did we do before YouTube? Heck, a co-worker of mine came to my office to …
I’ve been hearing rumors to the effect that Lalas and Yallop aren’t exactly BFFs. It seems a lot of the recent trades (many of which I still don’t understand) are all the work of the ginger one. Now I’m finally hearing about it from a reliable source.
If you want my opinion–well, your reading my blog so your gonna get it–dump Lalas before he does much more damage to the team. My problem isn’t what he’s been saying to the British press–I actually enjoy the way he winds …
