    Real is 34 — 34! — points above Atlético. Although it’s true Atlético is having a poor season, the economic disparity in La Liga is outrageous.

  3. war says:

    why can’t Juve win anymore!? I think they need to go back down to Serie B. Ahh. So frustrating. I expect to see chairs on fire soon.

  4. Jeff says:

    The Austin mens over 30 league may make the tv schedule, but if not we’ll still try our best

  5. baquito alyeska says:

    Am I crazy or was Buddle, along with another Galaxy player, a full body length offsides on Galaxy’s goal?

  7. DC Josh says:

    Ives, no mention of the Milan/Lazio game? If Milan win they pull within a point of Inter and tie Roma on 62 points. It’s no Madrid derby, but the San Siro will turn into the Bastille if Milan can’t pull off a win.

  8. MOUF says:

    Ryan Smith looks incredible, GO WIZARDS!

  9. Erik says:

    Watching it live it looked completely legit.

    On another note, can anyone in MLS actually pass the ball? Watching that game last night was like watching Hull’s B team.

  10. Jose S. says:

    Eddie Johnson and Freddy Adu both starting for Aris today.

  11. Citronomics says:

    That breaks the recent streak of Dressed but DNP for Adu. Let’s hope he and EJ have a positive impact for Aris

  12. John rsl says:

    RSL passed well

  13. dman says:

    looks like Ronaldo is dropping a deuce

  14. Rigoberto says:

    Just another idiot who thinks being the first post is an achievement.

  15. Spike says:

    Monday: Manchester City vs Wigan at 2:54 EST on ESPN2

  16. aby c says:

    I wish they would show the most underrated American Abroad in Mix Diskerud. The kid is only 19 plays for Stabaek, a top team, has played in Champions League, starts and has set up there goals. The kid is good

  17. Moose of Many Questions says:

    How have EJ and Adu played?

  18. B-Waite says:

    Only put it on in time to see the last 15 mins of the first half. They looked OK, Freddy made a few decent moves with the ball but hit a woeful cross with EJ and another forward making good runs into the box and he missed a 25 yard shot well wide. Aris pretty much dominated the last 15 mins of possession, but no great chance to show for it

  19. B1879 says:

    EJ off

  20. Der_Amerikanische_Kaiser says:

    Is willing to bet his paycheck that Bradley will not see another start at MB due to his suspension for today’s match against Hamburg where MB came out firing on all cylinders and looked real sharp in Bradley’s absence.


  21. B1879 says:

    Aris scores a free kick goal off a foul drawn by Adu.

  22. Mike says:

    EJ out in the 65th minute. Adu fouled at the top of the goal box leads to free kick goal by Aris. 1-0 lead.

  23. B-Waite says:

    highly doubtful. doesn’t he also have a broken nose? i’d be stunned if he doesn’t start again

  24. ahm says:

    ill be happy to take your paycheck man. lemme know when you’re ready to take down my info to send it on over

  25. B1879 says:

    Adu goes to FT. Aris 1-0. I thought he played fine.

  26. Jose S. says:

    Aris win and clinch playoff spot for Champions League berth.

    That means six more games in late April-early May for them.

  27. aby c says:

    and he scored a goal

  28. Der_Amerikanische_Kaiser says:

    Yes he does have a broken nose, but was suspended for today’s match due to accumalation of yellw’s. If he wants to start another match this season, he’ll have to work hard at it. The MB MF did a fantastic job today of creating chances and oppty’s for the forards which resulted in the massive win for MB.

  29. Jank says:

    I thought there was some decent passing in the NYRB-Fire match above all the other games but I only watched 3 matches.

  30. Der_Amerikanische_Kaiser says:

    ANd I were coach, I wouldn’t change a thing.

  31. Warren says:

    In their dreams.

  32. D says:

    AC Milan’s defense is terrible. I really hope Gooch gets some play soon. Of course he’s not even in Italy. I saw him las night at the Galaxy game sitting next to Beckham.

  33. 340234958203 says:

    NYRB- Fire was the best match I watched on saturday, very exciting, good passing, I thought I was watching the Premier League

  34. BCC says:

    Bad blood makes point disparities meaningless.

    It was an okay game. Atletico took their foot of the pedal in the second half for some reason, even after Xabi Alonso gifted them a penalty to make it 3-2.

    Higuain scored number 23, Kun Aguero’s hair looked stunning (based on the number of times he fixed it), so all was right in Madrid.

  35. BCC says:

    Why is Gooch in LA? Had not read this.

  36. J says:

    how did adu look?
