    Arsenal are doing everything wrong at the moment...
    And Tottenham is a young team wich keeps getting better. They managed to keep Bale who is their best player and the've built a strong team around...
    Even if this year, Manchester teams are better, I wouldn't be surprised if Tottenham ended up in the top 5 with Liverpool...

    The US team looked pretty solid against Honduras. Dempsey had a nice finish, and, besides his horrific miss, Brek Shea was a standout once again. I don't think Donovan, Dempsey and Shea have all started a game together, could be onto something if the 3 of them can find some chemistry

    USA looks pretty ugly tonight from what I've seen. I want Bob Bradley back... JK

    Too many long balls, too many individual touches, etc. No chemistry from what I'm seeing and yes I know it's only been a few games.

    Arsenal is 7-0-1 in their last eight. I really thought Wenger was going to get blown out but he seems to have turned it around for now, the Gunners are within striking distance of a top four finish if he keeps up this up.

    And congrats to the LA Galaxy for winning the MLS Championship. (Keane was onside, it should have been 2-nil)

    Haven't posted in a while, been too busy enjoying Newcastle's unlikely start to the season. They were quite fortunate with that phantom penalty against Man U last week, but if they can get by Chelsea this weekend, their schedule eases up a little for the next few weeks.

    Really surprised at how Arsenal has turned it around. They seem to have found their stride, lucky for Wenger.

    Not sure why Villas-Boas is under so much pressure at this point. Sure Chelsea isn't top of the table, but they're still in the mix for the league title, and they're still in the Champions League. Is the Chelsea owner that crazy? Granted, the only Chelsea fixture I've watched this season was against Arsenal a few weeks back, and no, they didn't look good. Has that been the case all season?

    If Van Persie gets injured they will suck again. They need a striker who can put the ball in the net when Van Persie is not there.

    that was quite the "s***y" loss for Tottenham against PAOK yesterday. Pretty much at 2-1 was 60 minutes of spurs onslaught, yet no goals. (aside from defoe's goal called back that might have been offside, might have been a foul, or might have been a valid goal with no big explanation from the ref).

    Wow...I know Man U fielded their "B" squad, but losing to Crystal Palace, who can barely win in the Championship...ouch.
