This soap opera finally appears to be over. Apparently, the deal is structure in such a way as to almost eliminate Liverpool's debt, which should go a long way to helping them on the pitch.

If he had Hudson, Hanson, and Jurrjens, it would have helped there too. (I couldn't bring myself to include Lowe despite his fantastic final performance this season).

I had more fun watching this Braves team than possibly any other since I've lived in Atlanta. Ultimately, the losses of Jones, Prado, and Wagner were just too much to overcome. As for Bobby, what else can be said.... until he hears welcome to Cooperstown.

I thought part one handled Atlanta's run and the Yankees multiple world series pretty well. I'm thinking that slobbering over these may have rankled quite a few.

You're probably right grum, but that was a moment that sort of leapt out at me while watching it, and enjoying it greatly.

This should be an interesting addition to the play-by-play analysis if he doesn't toe the company line and calls them like he sees them.

I saw this from arsereview on Twitter, which may shed some light on this:
"According to 5live, O'Neill resigned because Villa wanted to sell Friedel to Fulham to let them sell Schwartzer to Arsenal. Interesting."
As an Arsenal fan, I approve of anything that prevents Flapianski and Almunia from starting.
posted by trox at 04:12 PM on August 09
My guess is that he wasn't getting the money to spend he thought Villa needed to compete. The whole Milner to City saga (ongoing) probably helped push him too.

Strangely enough, this is the same tempo that I used to learn to cast a fly rod. 3 counts back cast, 1 count forward cast.

The description of the video leaves a bit to be desired:
7/18/10: Ryan Raburn can't corral Jhonny Peralta's fly ball to center, resulting in an inside-the-park home run that scores three.
No mention of a door anywhere.

Spain are reminding me of Italy last time around, not with style of play but starting slowly and then just getting the job done.
The exact same thing can be said for the Netherlands.

The big difference between Spain and Argentina/England is they have a midfield that is absolutely stacked with talent (and bodies). I don't expect Germany to be able to break them down as easily as they did their previous opponents. That said, I also expect Germany to hold the ball a little more than any opponent that Spain has had thus far. Should be an interesting game.
I expect Spain to do just enough to progress.

Historic background. Two time winners versus the best team never to win the cup. Forlan may be the best player thus far in the competition, but I can't see Uruguay overcoming Holland without Suarez.

If I were Gulati, I probably wouldn't fire Bradley or request his resignation. He took the US to where they should have been: the second round with a chance to advance. He made some mistakes along the way, but what coach doesn't.
That said, I definitely don't want him to be the coach for the next four years. The last time we tried that, it didn't work out so well (see 2006). The team needs some new ideas to continue moving forward..
posted by trox at 03:16 PM on June 29
So far, we're the only favorite to lose this round.
I never thought the US were favorites in this match. I saw it as a true toss up since Ghana was playing on African soil.

Forlan had a couple for himself yesterday too.
And what a stupid thing to do, Keita. That's always going to be a red card. Probably cost your side all three points.

If FIFA 2007 is any indication, then yes. Every time someone on the opposition receives a red card, I seem to lose. That's not scientific though.
All humor aside, it's something to think about. Based on the minute by minute of the ManU game yesterday, it seemed like they were by far the more threatening team, even with 10 men.
