Hannover’s up 3-0 at halftime. Eintracht Frankfurt is down 3-0 at halftime and M’Gladbach is losing 1-0.

Are Cherundolo, Clark and Bradley playing? Any update on their performance or are you just looking at the lastest score?

I watched some of Junior vs Leverk. He had a solid journeyman performance with nice passing from Mikey, but the game was a little boring. Junior was marking the man on the left side of the box, who shot a 18-20 yard shot to set up ther Leverk goal – not Junior’s fault IMHO…the keeper pushed the shot forward at an angle toward the right side of the 6 yd box rather than wide, which set up a rebound shot and the goal.

Watched the Hannover game. Steve did well. Didn’t get forward as much as he usually does, but that has to do with keeping Bochum from coming back. There were a few times during the game that the Hannover fans that traveled were chanting USA, USA.
Clark played and lost. Saw a couple of shots at goal in the 2nd half but wasn’t really following the game.

Leeds United are promoted to the Championship, nice to see them getting back on their feet. Eventually. Millwall and Charlton are representing south London’s charge for promotion via the play-offs – a very easy commute for the Palace (if either win!)…

lots of goals in MLS this weekend: CFSC 1-4 TFC, LAG 4-0 SSFC, PU 3-0 RSL. and that’s just the first three games. The CHV-HD, FCD-DCU and SJE-NYRB games should all be good, too.
not gonna lie though, that TFC game hurt pretty bad for this Fire fan. I guess it’s just another year until we get another crack at that first win at BMO. man, that was ugly.
whoops! I got the RSL-Philly game’s scoreline wrong. It was RSL who won 3-0, not the other way around.

Columbus-New England has been terrific. Crazy game. I cannot believe the chances Columbus has missed so far. I was about to write how I couldn’t believe the Crew weren’t already up 3-2, and just as I finish typing that very sentence Rogers scores. “It’s in the net,” as they say.

I’m pretty sure a record was broken or at least tied with weekend with the most goals scored in MLS play on one weekend. There were 24 goals scored in seven games. Can’t tell me the league isn’t exciting.

Things that make USMNT fans go hmmmmmmmmmm….
LD10 had three assists today and a goal (which was assisted by Buddle). Interestingly, Arena sub off both Buddle and LD around the 70th minute … hopefully he is thinking about the USMNT call up after next week’s game.
Gringo Torres had an assist as well.
Dolo wore captain’s armband for entire second half.
Captain Boca did not dress for second straight game.
RRogers scored but is it too little too late?

Reports were false… no Gooch in the 18 for Milan. May actually be better off, the pitch is a wet mess… not the best/safest for a game returning from injury.

Well done to Deschamps and Marseille. Hopefully, Blanc doesn’t take the French national job as rumoured, as I think this could be a facinating battle between two former teammates in years to come.

Did anybody watch the Barcelona game? 10 man Seville nearly pulled of the mother of all comebacks…
Posted by Len on 2010/05/09 at 9:58 AM
Just saw highlights……Barcelona really got caught with their pants down on that quick restart. Smart play by Sevilla. Sorry to see it didn’t incite a better reaction from Guardiola. It looked like he almost broke his arm elbowing the crap out of the bench shelter on the first goal. Gotta love the theatrics.

King looks fit for the cup with four in a row now, even though Burnley tore the defense apart today. First team to score four against us in all competitions…on the last day nonetheless. Well done to the Clarets. Also, what a filthy, filthy goal from Luka Modric. Even some Burnley fans were grinning and applauding! A report of a five year contract extension came from the Sunday mirror today. Two snubs for Fergie now.

oh that would be a perfect way to end the season, lock up Bale, then Modric… awesome!!

Wonder where DMB will end up. Looks like his time with Gers is over http://twitter.com/DaMarcusBeasley
