    So, Germany’s U-17s have to be the favorites right? They’ve been unfailingly dominant in the almost 2.5 matches of theirs I’ve seen.

  2. Machista Gay says:

    Dah! The germans be killing it in the heart!

  3. Brit says:

    Anybody else heard that Pelosi has been offered a contract by Liverpool?

  4. RagingSoccer says:

    I think we jinxed them.

  5. Jon says:

    Do backheels ever work out well?

  6. beachbum says:

    almost 3-3…wow

  7. beachbum says:

    and again…just wide. Germany holding on for dear life, they looked gassed

  8. kev says:

    David Yelldell just transfered to Bayern Leverkeusen. His paycheck must have been tripled or more.

  9. sir coble says:

    was the final 3-2 germany?

  10. AP says:

    ya but england deserved more!

  11. francois says:

    I don’t know about that. They were thoroughly dominated for 60 minutes and lucky not to be down 4 or 5 when they started their comeback.

  12. Fat Guy says:

    The only thing that matters today is SSFC over LA

  13. FulhamPete says:


    Your beloved Peru up 1-0 on URU?! Amazing!

  14. canchon says:

    Copa America = MLS. Gotta love the 0-0 and 1-1 ties.

  15. CrispyST3 says:

    seriously tho, and if not a low score game, it will be 3-3 or 4-4 haha

  16. Eric says:

    Well… The ref of the NE/RSL game just made himself the topic of conversation for the league this week. RSL and Borcher’s got completely screwed.

  17. Brit says:

    AND the replay is now showing feilhaber was five yards offside in the first place. Unbelievable.

  18. ... says:

    Yadar Reyes. This is his 17th game, and his 5th red card.

    And ESPN just showed that the entire play was offside.

    Error upon error upon error there. Wow.

  19. Eric says:

    I was looking forward to seeing Gil play 90 minutes in a full RSL game today too. I can’t imagine Kreis is going to leave him in the whole game now. He’s going to try and salvage a draw i assume.

  20. Scott says:

    Don’t believe Feilhaber was offside. You can’t be offside on a goal kick. It doesn’t look like anyone touched the goal kick. I don’t have DVR to rewind and watch again but I think he was OK. Commentators frequently don’t know the rules.

  21. Eric says:

    My problem wasn’t about Feilhaber possibly being offsides. It was about how Borchers made a clean tackle and was sent off with a red card.

  22. wildchild says:

    Borchers, the martyr.

  23. Scott says:

    Obviously a bad call. My response was to the people calling for offsides. While I was typing the ESPN commentators just corrected themselves and admitted he wasn’t offsides.

  24. canchon says:

    I just saw Gio fly down the flank, and Chile’s LB just stole the ball away from him on a clean tackle. Look, a team who plays defense.

  25. Eric says:

    Yeah, absolutely right. Going to be interesting to see the storm that this call kicks up this week.

  26. Allen says:

    What a good move by RSL. Peg one back and you can seriously sense the fire in their bellies to win this game now.

  27. StevenG says:

    Lol @ RSL outplaying the Revs a man down. Steve Nicol deathwatch, anyone?

  28. canchon says:

    Except for their idiot keeper. 1-0 Mex.

  29. JW says:

    I think the ball spent 2 minutes in Chile’s side of the field for the entire second half, thirty seconds of which were in the net.

  30. JW says:

    Erm, first half.

  31. Tony in Quakeland says:

    Didn’t know Nancy played. She a left wing?

  32. Eric says:

    Holy make up call.

  33. chris says:

    Mls officiating at its best. Maybe we should just have ejections and not lose a player so the refs can’t f**k up that bad.

  34. chris says:

    Hahaha ryan cochrane ugliest beard in the league

  35. Eric says:

    He’s going for the Brian Wilson look.

  36. Eric says:

    I think the amazing part of this game has been how badly RSL has outplayed NE even being a man down for the majority of the game. RSL’s defending on set pieces has been atrocious but their possession and runs off the ball have been very good. Kreis is in my opinion, the best coach in the league right now.

  37. canchon says:

    Chileans now up 2-1. Much deserved – it was unbelievable that Mex was up 1-0 at the half. Dominating performance. The Chileans can fly. Good to see that one team has shown up for the Copa America.

  38. Drew says:

    haha perfect

  39. RevsEric says:

    Totally outplayed. Couldnt take advantage of a 2-0 lead. Couldnt take advantage of the 3-2 lead. But as Revs fan, a point from Rio Tinto anyway you get it is a solid result.

  40. Fred K. says:

    Not sure if they really showed up, considering they played a second string u22 team. So far this Copa America has been a huge disappoint, but it’s probably due to the players being out of rhythm.

  41. SuperChivo says:

    How did Gil play?
