    Damn, Finland found some holes in our defense for sure. But at least we didn't lost. It was a hard task to score the 3rd equalizer since Finland had all their players near their own box but in the end we did it. That says something about the team. They sould ave given up but they didn't.

    At times it looked like one of those classic heavy weight bouts with a slow start but then punch and counter, a couple of knockdowns but in the end no final KO punch.

    But in all fairness Finland missed the EURO not by much so we can live with that for now.

    The only good thing beside the fact we saved at least 1 point is to see Klose finally back. After months without scoring that hattrick (although we don't call it that since hattrick in soccer means the actual natural hattrick).
    After the first goal you could see a complete different Klose from the one you saw the last couple of month. The ball finally bounced back in his direction, his body language was different and he just knew where to be to get the ball in the net.
    This will also help Bayern en route to the German title and and attack in the UCL. Klose and Toni both scoring again is just awesome.

    Amazing how the US can score 3 goals against a better Tridad team and only 1 against Cuba. Oh well. A win is a win at this stage of the game. US is pretty much through to the next round.

    And for those that care the group stage of the new CONCACAF Champions League starts today as well.

    DC United plays against Saprissa.

    Houston play tomorrow.

    Revs and Chivas got knocked out during qualifying.

    Well, it was televised on Setanta, a channel that is available for the low price of $15/month.

    I've been following the Montreal Impact in this event since they kicked out Toronto FC.

    By the way, all of Montreal's games will be live on CBC Bold (a subscription channel) and tape delayed at midnight on the real CBC.

    I always love watching the Champions League. Definitely some of the most exciting soccer to watch.

    Here's a list of today's matches:

    AS Roma v CFR Cluj
    Chelsea v Bordeaux (on TSN)

    Panathinaikos v Inter Milan
    W Bremen v Anorthosis Famagusta

    Barcelona v Sp Lisbon (on TSN2)
    FC Basel v Shakhtar Donetsk

    Marseille v Liverpool
    PSV Eindhoven v Atl Madrid

    -not sure which games are on ESPN in the US. I assume its the same.

    Cool. I am following DC United but to a degree any MLS team that is there. Hoping DC and Houston do okay.

    I hope they both do well, as well.

    Particularly Houston with Dwayne DeRosario.

    New women's league in the US next year. They allocated players from the US national team today and there is a draft next week. St. Louis got their hometown girl Chalupny along with Hope Solo and Tina Ellertson. Hoping to make it to a game next season once it gets off the ground.

    I guess a plus for Man U that Ronaldo is back. But it was a very lucklaster job upfront of them. Going to need a much better performance this weekend against Chelsea.

    US qualified for the last stage of WC qualifying over the weekend by taking down Cuba 6-1. So now they can give some younger guys a chance to play the next two games and see what all we have going for us.

    Sucks. I was hoping they would make it to the final round.

    Man City is my team. Pretty glad they squeezed out the tie today against Newcastle.

    Man City is a joke to the EPL with the inflation they put in this year, and are going to attempt next year. The Robinho sign for that much money... complete joke. If they want to land Kaka, they better start moving up the table and get into Champions League contention.

    Finally a day with a lot of goals scored. Villareal wins 6-3, Lyon wins a crazy game 5-3 and so on.

    But the best thing is both ManU and my Bayern won their games 3-0.
    Although Bayern got very lucky. The offense was great but Fiorentina had chance after chance and could have left with a 3-3 tie or maybe even a win if they would have been able to convert. Lucky they didn't.
    And I can only hope Bayern is able to persuade Ze Roberto to play another year or two for them. He's on an absoulte tear since he came back last season and now he even scores goals.


    On a sidenote it's hard to see the goal total from today matched by tomorrows games. But who knows.

    Anything that breaks up the big four hegemony in England is a good thing, imo.

    Do it the right way if you ask me. Don't inflate by use WAY too much money. Not only does it hurt the top4, it hurts the bottom of the table as well.

    How does it hurt the lower teams? They were never going to compete anyway. If anything they make more money when they sell their players.

    You do know Hull is 3rd on the table right now right? Man City has inflated all transfers in England, and they want to even make more of a splash in midseason transfers and next offseason transfer table. Its incredibly stupid. Either way, Man City will never make a top table splash, they can stick to the UEFA cup.

    Have you seen the table recently? Its back to the same four on top.

    I've followed the game long enough, Hull will be back to their normal place in the standing eventually.

    If we really want 'fairness' in the game we should be promoting better revenue sharing and salary caps.

    If its survival of the fittest, like it is now, I could care less where the money comes from. And like I said, if in the end it means Arsenal, ManU, Chelsea and Liverpool suffer in the standings, its great!

    I'm with you Narduch.

    Dawinna, can you explain to me how Man City's signing of Robinho is any different then Chelsea's signing of Shevchenko a couple years ago. If I recall correctly the transfer fee for Shevchenko was 30-31 million pounds, the transfer fee for Robonho was 32 million...not all that much of a difference. You know if Man City didn't get him someone else (probably Chelsea was going to).

    I hope Man City can bring over a couple more stars and become a top team. I'm sick of seeing the same 4 on the top of the table every year. IMO, it's about time another team had the financial means necessary to challenge the big 4.

    I hate it when I see fans of other big teams cry about teams with new money splashing it around. As if their spending money on players is more pure.

    I apologize to Dawinna on the current top 4 though. It looks like Hull is still in 3rd:

    I could have sworn that most recent Fox Soccer Report showed the usual suspects back on top.
