So new thread rule we only talk about results the day after?

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

Spurs... holy fuck, they looked like shit yesterday. No creativity in the midfield. No defense to speak of. Why is Paul Robinson England's #1 instead of David James? Even Berbatov looked lost. Playing 4-3-3 does not seem to suit them. The only player with any sort of clue was Keane. Why is Malbranque in that squad? He sucked for Fulham last year and he sucks for Spurs. Meanwhile, Everton were tight, much better than I expected without Cahill.
Spurs were without King, Dawson and Lennon. That negates most of their D and wide play. Any time you see Stalteri on the field, it's gotten really bad. Malbranque was with Spurs most of last year.


Switching continents, Becks got his first goal in a Superliga  semifinal against DC United on his first free kick in a meaningful game.

He then later got an assist with a nice pass to Landon. He had another shot in the second half which he missed by a foot or so.


Superliga was a nice surprise. The games, especially the Semi of Houston and Pachuca, was  above my expectations. Pachuca looks to complete the continental Triple. I really look forward to seeing how they do in the Club Cup this December.

I didn't get a chance to youtube the Ronaldo "headbutt" last night but I did see a non-HQ slow-mo replay and I couldn't' tell wtf the red was for.

Man Utd is really having a bad start to the season..

I watched the Fulham v Bolton game on VHS last night what an odd match.  Bolton just can't play inspired football for more then 15 min at a time this season (I've seen both of their games so far by chance) which spells trouble for them as Anelka is very talented but he's no sort of sparkplug and Diouf looks like he's another loss away from getting a red for something silly.

Bocanegra played a pretty good game at the back but he made some mistakes and got away with them.  McBride was solid but didn't get any help from the bounces or anything, Dempsey came on as a sub but the game was already in garbage time, just hold on mode for Fulham.

Games I want to see most Saturday:
Fulham v Boro
Wigan v Sunderland
Newcastle v Aston Villa

Well I guess the Tottenham Hotspur have been such a disgrace that FSC have replaced their Saturday morning live match with another game.

And in other news... (namely F13 Premiership Fantasy League)  SCOREBOARD, baby!  Dreamteamers for the win.

It's not just this season. It's why I don't watch them anymore unless they are playing Liverpool. They are just boring as fuck to watch. I still can't figure out how they finished so high last year.

Saturday's games were a mixed bag. The Reading/Everton match was fantastic. I really like Reading's chance of staying up this year, maybe even challenging for Europe. They have to watch their injuries though. Just as I picked up Duberry in the fantasy league, he gets hurt. FUCK.

Sunderland looked lost today, which against Wigan is a bit of a sin.

Derby was TOTALLY lost. Why is it Tottenham got their groove on the game after Berbatov gets injured and I drop him? Fucking Spurs. I watched the first 20 minutes then just started fast forwarding to see if Derby put up any fight whatsoever. Nope.

I'm going to try to catch the games on FSC tomorrow early.

It may not have been the most technically perfect match, but damn if that Galaxy / Red Bull New York game on FSC last night wsn't the most entertainnig thing I've seen in a while.

66,000 plus at Giants stadium for MLS was a sight to see.

Between booking Essien twice without sending him off, and giving Chelsea a penalty because Malouda jumped on Finnan while off the ball, it's fair to say we've just witnessed a worse refereeing display than a certain Mr G Poll in the World Cup. Which I never thought I'd be saying this soon.

Anyway, it seems all my players are cursed in some way, even with weekly transfers I'm having difficulty keeping 11 fit players in the squad.

bah.

I literally stopped checking my lineup months ago.  I was making the weekly trade for awhile though.  CR as captain = winner.  I had that from day1, also avoided pool players like the plague.

yeah, real life wiped me out from mid september until around february, and I just lost interest after that.  Ready to go for next year though. :)

I don't normally lose interest in fantasy leagues, but I succumbed to fatigue about 3/4 of the way in. I just got so busy it became one other thing I didn't check much. But at least I was out of it by the time I started forgetting.

I skipped this past year because it is just too damned hard for me to follow consistently. I have to find enough time to watch at least SOME of the games, and I just didn't have that time.
