Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary

AC Milan is one of the most prestigious clubs in the world, but this season, things aren't going quite so well.

The Rossoneri sit in 12th place in Serie A and will take on fellow strugglers AS Roma in one of today's marquee match-ups.

With Oguchi Onyewu sidelined for up to three to four months, and with Milan now asking that U.S. Soccer pay Onyewu's wages since he got hurt on national team duty (a request that has no chance of happening), there is even less reason for most American fans to root for Milan. If anything, there is now more reason to hope their struggles continue.

The match of the day for American fans is in Houston, where the Dynamo will play host to the Los Angeles Galaxy in an important Western Conference clash with first place on the line.

    Bradley playing. Team down 1-0 to Wolfsburg.

  2. Alex says:

    Bradley playing decent. Covering lots of space. Could’ve had two assists.

  3. A.S. says:

    No La Liga game on ESPN this week?

  4. Alex says:

    only on espn360

  5. PetedeLA says:

    Bradley scored in the last minute of play. They lost 1-2, though.

  6. Alex says:

    Bradley w/a consolation goal!

  7. Kosh says:

    Nice goal from Bradley and great effort. Sucks that it all happened in a losing effort.

  8. Todd says:

    if you’re a fan of soccer in the states and don’t turn into telefutura at 3pm you’re silly. Most of the USMNT’s midfield and Beckham. Wooooooo

  9. wk says:

    anybody found a link to highlights of Bradley’s goal and the MGB-Wolfsburg game?

  10. Alex says:

    big game at 3pm

  11. BrooklynFC says:

    USMNT Ratings for FIFA 2010 at 5:58

  12. Beckster says:

    these FSC commentators are really funny. Makes an already enjoyable game even more so.

  13. Jorge says:

    And Villareal keeps sinking… Lost to Xerez.

  14. CrispyST3 says:

    So whats going down for today?

    Dinho looks like a straight up thug right there, lol

    Oh, and just to clarify guys when i said JFT would fit in Barca’s style of play, i didnt mean that right now he would start, or even make the bench, i was simply saying that he would fit, and as for Keita’s defensive work, he seemed to be doing alot of defensive vs. Costa Rica when bradley was moving up, so i think he’s capable of doing that

  15. Supsam says:

    @ BrooklynFC

    Awesome! Few thoughts:Its funny how even FIFA rates the “benched” Altidore higher than the starting Ching. These ratings (for the US) are very very accurate. Quality players like Feilhaber, Torres, Holden are all higher rated than clark at the CAM position (since clark is more CDM). But i wonder if they would include Castillo and Jones in the player pool or do you have to do that manually? Maybe id rate Boca a little higher but everything else seems fine.Its a bonus that FIFA has now rated Donovan higher than Beckham.

  16. jimmygreaves says:


    Could you please post a link again for those FIFA player ratings?

  17. OmarVizquel says:

    Did Adu play today?

  18. sonicdeathmonkey says:

    AC Milans defense give up a howler in the opening two minutes. Roma up 1-0. They could really use Gooch right about now.

  19. sonicdeathmonkey says:

    The video feed problems Telefutura is having makes the Dynamo/Galaxy game almost unwatchable. It’s giving me a headache.

  20. SuperChivo says:

    too bad about the crappy feed because it is a pretty entertaining match.

  21. jtd says:

    just tuned into la v hou. have they announced the crowd size? it looks like theres a ton of people there.

    oh, holden… so close!

  22. SuperChivo says:

    Does Landin look like he could use to lose a pound or twenty?

  23. jtd says:

    clark with a header of a holden corner kick- hit nicely but right at the keeper.

  24. Scott A says:

    Some good soccer on display with Dynamo and LA

  25. jtd says:

    superchivo- he’s going for the blanco look.

    the stadium looks packed. it’s gotta be a sell out. anyone know?

  26. SuperChivo says:

    The football lines really make the bad offsides calls look obvious.

  27. Larry Y says:

    What? No Michael Bradley bashing? No blaming nepotism for his playing time?

    Ugh, AC Milan is not in a good place right now. And the ball bouncing off the post was compensation for the penalty no-call at the other end.

  28. SuperChivo says:

    Maybe football lines aren’t so bad after all, another bad offside call

  29. madmax says:

    One team dropping further, without precedent, is Villarreal. Today they battled Xerez for last place in LaLiga, and Villarreal won last place. They have dropped from 3rd to 20th in one season. Those who didn’t like they way they treated Jozy, or Rossi’s comments about team USA are allowed a big smile today.

  30. Fred says:

    OmarVizquel, sounds like Adu might not have played today — he tweeted that his ankle will be better for their midweek friendly, so maybe that means it was still tweaked this weekend.

  31. CrispyST3 says:

    Just got home from alot of stuff that i had to do, i hear the LA vs Houston game is going good, nice, im ready for the second half

  32. jtd says:

    crispy- la v hou is good. although, both teams seem to be having trouble sttling the ball down so far this half. there was some good possession last half.

    amazing sve off the line.. who was that for houston?

  33. Pepe says:


    what a save

  34. jtd says:

    agian, i have to ask… soes anyone know the crowd size for the hou la match?

  35. Pepe says:


  36. jonk says:

    I’m a Dynamo fan but I’m still infuriated that Donavon could miss so badly when in 1v1 with the keeper.

  37. jtd says:

    thanks pepe.

  38. Pepe says:


    That was no dive. That was a straight red for Berhalter!

  39. CrispyST3 says:

    Yah, nice one pepe, straight RED for a man that didnt even touch him

  40. Scott A says:

    madmax, not to get started on a Rossi discussion because I don’t want to, but I’m curious, what did Rossi say about team USA?

  41. Pepe says:

    He definitely clipped him. Why would Berhalter stop and STICK HIS LEG OUT??

    Oh, but the ref was too busy not giving Beckham cards to notice.

  42. CrispyST3 says:

    They showed the replay, and he didnt touch him, the Ref was right on the mark

  43. Josue says:

    Crispy, i don’t know what game u watching, the replay clearly shows that oduro was fouled

  44. CrispyST3 says:

    He didnt touch him, both you guys need to see that again

  45. John D says:

    Any news on how US players did in the Scandinavian leagues this weekend?

  46. madmax says:

    Scott A, “what did Rossi say about team USA…”
    Good catch on Rossi (whom I admire).

    Should read, those who felt Rossi’s celebration not ‘statement’ disrespected USA, could smile today.

  47. advocat says:

    I will continue to support AC Milan. And especially because the most important MLS player, Beckham, is part of their organization.
