    “Hand ball by a French man that was seen on Clichy”

    I almost spat out my rib-eye steak at this one.

  2. afc says:

    Wycombe beat Millwall 2-0. Their first win since August 29th. Pittman injured in the 22nd minute.

  3. Mig22 says:

    All the announcers have been having a bit of sport with THAT this morning. good times. Hate hate hate.

  4. Mig22 says:

    Oh, Howard just smashed his ribs at 5:55 on that dive to his left.

  5. Mike says:

    Apparently Dempsey almost scored another bicycle kick for fulham

  6. forest says:

    Gota buy a new tv 90 percent will be for watching soccer, any recamendations brands etc. That anyone likes.

  7. Spectra says:

    Vizio is the best of the cheap brands SOny is the best of the pricey brands. Either way try to get LED they’ll last longer than LCD or Plasma.

  8. forest says:

    Cool thanks for the advice spectra gota squeze the piggy bank now

  9. Dustin says:

    LG is very good too, pricey though.

  10. babieca says:

    Make sure to get one with VGA input so you can hook it up to the computer to watch streams.

  11. Adam in Irvine says:

    LG has good specials going right now. If you’re looking for a tv, check out They search the internet for specials.

    By the way, not affiliated with the website, I’m just looking for a tv myself.

  12. Tim From Texas says:

    Frankie Simek is going the full 90 today at Ipswich. I watched from the 50 minute mark but i could never tell where he was on the field. Might of played as left back or center back, but he wasn’t on the right side.

  13. forest says:

    Wow thanks again everyone that was a lot of good info guna be a good hollidays now no matter what with a new tv and all the games on the way.

  14. fischy says:

    Might have…. Think about it.

  15. zidanescoresagain says:

    yeah good info on t.v. selection, now maybe if we can get some info on the actual games. :/ poor showing today by the PBP guys and no, i don’t care to do them myself. that’s why i (used) to come here.

  16. Yossarian says:

    Looks like Jozy had a decent game in 70+ minutes

    Bradley with another 90′ in a nice win. Gladbach looking like a solid mid-table team

    Beas didn’t even dress for Rangers :-(

    Spector gets splinters, but considering the Hammers shambolic defending, you’d think he’s a good bet for next match

  17. jon says:

    any count on how many goals Tim Howard has let in these past two months??? Don’t get me wrong I love the guy, but all I keep reading is how he is in top form…..but at the same time allowing an average of 2 goals a game??? He is definitely not having a good roll now.

  18. michael wright says:

    beasley has a slight hamstring injury. which is why he wasnt on bench

  19. Supsam says:

    Have you seen Everton’s defense this season?? Its been absolutely atrocious!! Lescott is being missed

  20. Tim From Texas says:

    well he wasn’t subbed in

  21. Ken says:

    I would say they are missing Jagielka. Lescott looks good next to him. Now he’s horrible for Man City. Good job by Moyes selling him for 22mil.

  22. RNG says:

    Yes but if you actually watched today’s game, the goals were not his fault. No one would have stopped them….

  23. davidaubudavid says:

    I think fischy is referring to your grammar but i could be wrong.

  24. afrim says:

    the LB West Ham played today was lethal on offense but horrible on defense. no we know why spector provides cover on the left side for them

  25. Tim From Texas says:

    anywho! i hope frankie continues to get this sort of playing time for Sheffield Weds. Cherundolo, Spector, Bornstein, Castillo and Frank Simek in concept seem like the best bunch we could have at the outside back positions heading into the world cup

  26. Tim From Texas says:

    Couple of notes on the Fulham game:

    Dempsey starting as supporting striker behind Bobby Zamora, while Eddie Johnson made the bench. Not to much happened offensively for Fulham in the 1st half, but things definitely picked up in the second half being down a goal. Dempsey had three shots at goal in the second half, with two of them being on target. His best and first attempt would be his excellently stricken header in the 69th minute, which surely would’ve been a goal if not for an excellent reflex save by Birmingham goalie Joe Hart.

  27. afc says:

    Jon Paul Pittman is on crutches. He was carried off during the Millwall game. More info on Sunday or Monday.

  28. baquito alyeska says:

    Jozy had a very decent game for Hull. Was often marked by two men and still played well with the ball at his feet. Prolly the best part was his pass selection to his midfielders running on.

  29. bryan says:

    Samsung is by the far the best quality for price you can get. and the LCD is only like $1000 for a 42″.

  30. r.benjamin says:

    I agree. Jozy played well. I don’t remember any giveaways and he kept posession and played positive balls in a few tight spots where in previous similar situations the ball usually “bricks” off of him.

    I think he showed what kind of player he is and can be. A handful but the type of player that needs supporting midfielders that he can play off and a heady 2nd striker that is alert to his flicks and one touches.

    I would think, at this point he is Hull’s 60-70 min starting striker.

  31. Gavelect says:

    Carl Dickinson put the boot into us at the weekend. Absolutely gutted. Traveled down from Ayrshire for this as one as my mate’s got corporate tickets through his work. Hate to say it but it was a cracking goal. Wee Burky had a great game. Although we travelled down and got beat we still had a ball. Traveled back to Wales in a supporters bus (sang all the way), had a party with the fans which was great and then stayed at the Village Cardiff Hotel. Hopefully be down for a home game after Christmas.
