Had to share this... easily one of the best displays of skill and steadiness in front of goal I've ever witnessed.

Wow. Just a stunning display of skill.

Of course, he probably would have scored if he had just done a simple chest-trap and volley. But the flair was nice.

Too bad for Brazil that he was completely invisible in the World Cup.

Only took a day for that joke to crawl out of the ocean and test its legs.

I'll counter with, Too bad you feel that way. :mooner:

Yeah, he could be using it to swing a stick at a little white ball... :cool:

Hey I played soccer my Jr. and Sr. years in high school. We had some very talented guys, most soccer players are extremely talented, and I would always tell them "you guys might be popular if you played a real sport." And they'd go back at me with jokes about basketball and baseball and I'd say "hey we don't joke about baseball." So I like to kid soccer players and fans, hell my brother is a high school soccer coach and I give him crap all the time, it's all in fun. So I apologize if I offended anyone with my insensitive soccer bashing comments.:evil:

Anyone catch the Fulham-Arsenal match yesterday? Great game. I was shocked by the pace Fulham brought to bear against the Gunners. Luis Boa Morte may have played his best game ever.

I saw the end, the announcers were noting that as well.

The Man U - Chelsea game was nice too.

Here's a pic of his house on the Spanish coast. Hmm...I guess he did waste all that ability.

Dropping Essien to the halfback position really changed that game. Chelsea had been getting trapped pretty well in the midfield in the first half and when Essien began to dribble forward from the halfback position it created quick transitions and really opened up the field.

In the Fulham-Arsenal game, Fulham backs Leroy Rosenior and Moritz Volz were bursting through the Arsenal midfield on a frequent basis too. I'm starting to think that the total football concept of attacking defenders is the next big wave in the game.

Well if money is what we're going for he should have become a Formula-1 driver.

Maybe I'm just still in the dark ages on this one...entirely possible...and I'm not a soccer guy so admittedly, I'm ignorant on the sport...but why does it seem like every time a soccer player scores a goal, he takes off his shirt and run around?

Probably the same reason OSU fans go on and on and on..... because they can. ;)

Nah... because goals are really scarce in the game, and if you have ever played the game you'd really get it.

Same reason they do endzone dances in the NFL.

What about my boys at READING??? 3 wins in a row, the most recent of which was a 1-0 win away to Fulham at Craven Cottage, a very difficult venue to leave with any result. Just avoiding relegation is the goal for any team in their first season after promotion, but Reading have put together an incredible start to their first Prem. campaign and currently sit in 8th!

(They recently acquired US National Eddie Johnson on loan... can't wait to see how that turns out when he gets on the pitch)

Eddie should do quite well in England. His game is suited for that style play. He should be fun to watch.

Reading's been a lot of fun this season. Nick Shorey's been fantastic. Johnson should held too because if ever there's a team that needed another striker, it's Reading. Kevin Doyle's one man act up front is going to get shut down unless he gets some help.

Speaking of teams in the EPL that desperately need stuff, Portsmouth should have a Jones for an attacking midfielder (or really any midfielder as Davis, O'Neil and Mendes are as yawn-inducing a bunch as you'll find). Why that team's not after Clint Dempsey or Dwayne De Rosario eludes me.

Man, how can you let a guy get on your goal side like that? Stick your thumb in his waistband like a good defender.

Fulham have agreed a deal to sign American striker Clint Dempsey -- but the transfer could be scuppered by work permit problems. Clubcall understands that the Cottagers have hammered out a fee with New England Revolution for the 23-year-old, who can also play in an attacking midfield role. -- clubcall.com

Wow, that would be a nice landing spot for Dempsey. If the deal isn't scuppered (love the King's English), Fulham's going to be able to bring some serious pace in the latter part of the season when a lot of clubs find their legs failing them.

Fox Soccer Channel carries EPL and Argentine games. ESPN2 and ESPN Classic have been running Champions League Games. GolTV has got a little bit of everyting from Spanish League to German to Italian to Brazilian to Uruguayan.
