Caught Roma v. Inter yesterday in Serie A, and I have to say that I'm impressed with the progress of Michael Bradley. He played brilliant midfield and set up numerous scorning chances that Roma's strikers failed to convert.
He seems so much more confident in that playmaking role. I have to admit, I thought he got promoted too quickly to the USMNT because he was the coach's son. But I like the way he's developed his game.
