  • I am the Jesus!

    We have two youth soccer systems here. Basic high school and club. High school is what it is. This is my second program. I had another for 8 years but left it this past season. My new program is different, twice as big, has a club (that I work in) prepping players, has tradition (state titles, etc) so I'm excited, nervous.

    I also coach Academy/Premier soccer teams from u12 to u19 for our club.

    Both are different. High school is lights, letter jackets, cheerleaders... and 3 months. Club is developing highly competitive players traveling the region, nation and prepping for collegiate (and sometimes professional) levels of play.

    Both are involved, different and great in their own way. With this hs team though I inherit a top 3 team each year. Excited

  • Chelsea definitely mucked it up today. Drawing with Southampton hurts them, especially seeing as this was their game in hand on the clubs ahead of them.

    Man U slipped past West Ham in Rooney's return to action. And Arsenal finally dominated a match from wire to wire and won, albeit it took them 26 shots to score 1 goal, that's a bit frustrating but I can handle it seeing as they didn't screw it up and lost.

    As much as it makes my German club- BVB Dortmund- have to work even that much harder to overtake them on a yearly basis, it is AWESOME news for the Bundesliga.

    I love Everton don't get me wrong but the Bundesliga is so far above the EPL in entertainment. The league is doing it right in allowing it's German youth plenty of chances to play. The ticket prices are kept at a reasonable level plus they still have safe standing terraces which I have experienced various times during my travels over there. There is no way you will ever see some rich oil baron or shiekh purchase a team as a toy. The system is set up that it can't happen.


    As for Pep, I think he picked a great team for him. The culture there in Munich is one that should work for him.


    Much wiser move than going to the cluster%^&& that is Chelsea and going to Money City.

    I agree with you about the Bundesliga, it is far more entertaining, regardless if it's 1st place versus 2nd place or 1st place versus 20th place.

    I also think calling Chelsea and City a clusterf*** only begins to describe it.

  • Don't know why any LFC fan would be arsed by Walcott signing with Arsenal. Its good for Wenger. Was interested its only a 3+ year contract. So basically he will be 26 and subject to massive speculation again in 2015 (winter, maybe summer going into 2016 season).. but he's theirs now.

    Pep to Bayern is interesting. I disagree that the Bundasliga is anywhere near on par with the PL in terms of interest. However they have 4-5 teams that are well constructed and stylistic. Dortmund is easily my 2nd favorite. Peps influence in the German league could be groundbreaking. Could be all to do about nada as well. But its interesting. Should shape their transfers this summer

    Of course he's upset that you didn't censor it. He's most upset that you chose to post a tweet included that language. No need to get aggro about it. Just make a mental note and move on, after editing your post to remove the f-bombs perhaps.

    As for Walcott, probably a pretty good signing. He's shown flashes of greatness. Now he and Wenger need to work out how to get his best in each game. And as for Liverpool: signing Sturridge made Walcott unnecessary. Both clubs did well with these signings, I think. Of the two I'd rather have Sturridge, but Walcott, from what I understand is showing signs of improvement at the Arsenal so keeping him could well be a good move.

  • 5-0 To Liverpool which was about as well as Liverpool have played this year. Team looks like it has much more fluidity throughout the pitch. If we can continue to play like that in the league, (against teams in the top half) we are going to make some noise.

    If. I'm not holding my breath. Every time they look like they've turned a corner this year, they put up a shite performance like against Villa or Stoke. We'll see how the next few weeks play out. Big one against Arsenal should show us what we'll be able to do in the league this year.

    Not really aggro about it, just felt like pointing out the obvious.

    I'd rather have Walcott, not so much cause he's on Arsenal, but rather cause he has indeed shown what he's capable of, and we've all seen what happens when he's inform. He does still has plenty of places in his game to improve, namely his consistency, but that's obvious to everyone. A lot of people have started comparing him to Henry, but I don't think he's at the point to start doing that and we should at least wait a few more years before really doing that.

  • I just managed to watch my first game of this brand of football in 6 weeks and it was a pretty good one.

    Kyle Walker is having the very definition of a sophomore slump but Spurs would have been desperately unlucky to finish without the late point. I'm really not sure how United are winning this league. They're just not that great.

    No they're not, but neither is anyone else. United are winning it because they've been more consistent than everyone else. Oh, and RVP is carrying them like he carried Arsenal for years.

    It's sad when probably the greatest manager in the history of football is also the most classless. Worse that the FA continually lets him get away with it.

    Are you including the years he spent on the treatment table? Which would be every season he was at Arsenal until last year.

  • LOL Gate, you're such a muppet. Liverpool wouldn't pay those wages for him. Comparing trophies in the EPL to the Greek league is shaky at best and nonsensical at worst, but you've never really been known for your knowledge of how football actually works.

    And as for the broken record comment, shelve it. Arsenal have been pretty poor for a while now, and things don't look like improving any time soon. Another year without trophies and another year where the better Arsenal players start looking to take their talents elsewhere. Arsene has been getting by on qualifying for CL football for the last several years, he won't have that luxury this year. Two big matches coming up for Arsenal - West Ham and Liverpool. Lose both of them and it's squeaky bum time for Arsene.

  • Gate... there is no comparison between the two clubs. Don't be ridiculous. And as for Sneijder, wasn't all that into him coming to Liverpool. I'm very excited about the youth movement in the club and don't see the need to bring in a wounded, aged midfielder that noone but the Greek league seemed to really want. To clarify (and feel free to educate the iliverpool fans you seem to be discussing) Liverpool offered to take Sneidjer on loan at 90k a week. Inter wanted a full transfer, and those wages are less than half of what he was earning. So both he and Inter chose another path. More power to him

    Picking between one of the "Top 8" clubs in the world and a team that's actually in the Champions League last 16 must've been a real tough call.

    I still stand by what I said. Galatasaray is only relevant when they are playing in champions league games against bigger clubs. I wasn't all that excited for Wesley to come play for Liverpool, as I don't think he really had a place to win. I'm happ for him, but when the lights turn off on the UCL, I don't think he will be too excited to play against Besiktas (The only other Turkish club I can think of)

    Doesn't mean Arsenal are world beaters, but that was the real Arsenal playing yesterday, not the half and half team from the last two weeks. Easily that was their best overall performance of the season, you thinking that I think all's well and fine and dandy after only 1 win is more insane than what you said. Maybe you'll wise up next week if and when Arsenal beat Liverpool, who I just so happen to love how everyone's claiming has finally found stability after essentially doing an identical thing to Norwich(who's pretty much in the same position as West Ham). We'll certainly see who's more stable after next Wednesday, won't we?

  • On a serious note. Who's more at fault here:



    In one corner you've got the Chelsea nimrods who are vilifying the kid and in a way condoning what Hazard did as what the kid deserved. On the other side you've got the people who are demanding the kid be left alone and draging Hazard's name through the mud. And then in the middle is the people who are saying that are blaming the kid for instigating it but not letting Hazard off scot free in the least.

  • Gate, we won't see who's more stable after Wednesday. Arsenal are underperforming this season. Liverpool have been inconsistent. It is what it is. Arsenal will not win a trophy this year, and probably neither will Liverpool. No-one said that Liverpool are now suddenly 'stable'. What does that even mean? Your results are your results. Arsenal are off the pace of the leaders by a mile and are on the outside looking in for the last CL spot.


    To your second post, Hazard needs a pretty hefty ban for this one. The kid should never be a ball boy again. The ref is the one who would need to sort out the time wasting on the ball boy's part, it is NEVER appropriate for a professional player to lash out at someone like that during a game. I'm thinking at least a 5-match ban for Hazard, and well deserved.

  • Gate, who on this board has claimed Liverpools stability? Its almost getting to the point where your posts are so inane they are no longer humourous. "The real Arsenal?" Boy kid, you still haven't sorted out the ebbs and flows of the Prem. The "real" anybody versus the one off good performances are the difference in rationality and fan boy. Honestly, who has looked exceedingly good or bad this season? Chelseas top 3 and recently lost to QPR. QPR is relegation bound but has beaten the European champions. There are a hundred similar examples. This is more than an anomoly, I believe they are true reflections of both the parity and mediocrity settling into the PL these days.

    Anyways, Hazards actions are despicable. I don't care if that was Michu lying on the ball, you don't kick someone in the ribs. He will take a hefty beating on this one. Plastic fans can not turn away from this one no matter how much they villify the immaturity of a (clearly mature) ball boy

    Looking forward to Wednesday. Always fun when two big teams meet mid week

  • Did I say it was someone on this forum who said Liverpool are stable? No I didn't.

    As for "The Real Arsenal" comment, I wasn't the one who said it first, I just picked it up from the commentator of the Arsenal match after this goal.

    he is a kid. I have to remind myself of this on occasion so that I don't just hate him. He has that certain naivite that you only get with neuveau soccer fans.

  • 7 EPL clubs have crashed out of the FA cup 4th round. Norwich and Liverpool suffering the more embarrassing upsets in my mind. That's not to say Luton Town and Oldham don't deserve to still be in it, they made their fans proud and put forth inspiring efforts to make it through.

  • FA Cup 5th Round Draw

    Oldham vs Everton
    Arsenal vs Blackburn
    Man City vs Leeds
    Man United vs Reading
    Huddersfield/Leicester City vs Wigan
    MK Dons vs Barnsley
    Luton vs Millwall.
    Middlesbrough v Brentford or Chelsea

    Oldham get rewarded for their big win by getting the other half of the Merseyside Derby. United get their 3rd straight EPL opponent in the FA Cup. Seems like Millwall got the best of the draw getting non-League side Luton Town.

    We'll cross that bridge when and if we get there. At least my club's still in the FA Cup.
