Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary

For all the success Manchester United has had in the past decade, one sore spot for the English club has been the team’s inability to win an FA Cup.

The Red Devils have gone nine years since last lifting the FA Cup, a streak they will look to move toward snapping when they face West Ham United today in a match airing on national television (Noon, FOX).

The Mexican League is back in full swing, with Club American facing Monterrey in one of the day’s more high-profile match-ups. Herculez Gomez and Santos Laguna will take on San Luis in another match-up to watch.

    Anyone know where I could find a feed for Spurs v Coventry? I checked firstrowsports and they don’t have one posted. Any help would be much appreciated.

    • Addick says:

      I doubt you’ll find one. Only a small handful of the Cup matches are televised (and I don’t think the Spurs match is one of those handful).

    • THomas says:

      Doubt it…only a few are on TV and if they are FoxSoccer would likely have it in some capacity, on air or online.

      I’m listening to the Fulham radio feed on their website for their game v Blackpool. Fulham is dominating but no score with their first choice lineup in.

  2. Addick says:

    Cameron starts for Stoke against Crystal Palace, Edu again fails to make the 18.

  3. Addick says:

    Dempsey and Friedel start for Spurs against Coventry.

  4. yikes says:

    hope Clint scores today

  5. dikranovich says:

    it looks like newcastle is going to be in a real religation battle this season, now that they dont have the services of demba ba, and their version of stu holden, ben arfa, is out. tottenham have assou ekotto back and that should be a boost to deuces production, maybe even a boon.

  6. Joe+G says:

    “Club American”? I thought at first that was a reference to Xolos.

  7. THomas says:

    Dempsey finished from close range to put Spurs up 1-0.

  8. Dan in New York says:

    GOAL Clint Dempsey on a tap-in from Bale!

  9. Heft says:

    It’s weird to see Demba Ba in blue this morning.

  10. EvertonBrian says:

    Apparently Deuce assisted on the 2nd as well?

  11. Eric says:

    Dempsey with another. 3-0 Tottenham

  12. Jon says:

    Spurs up 3-0. Deuce with two goals. Third was scored by Bale after Clint’s shot was deflected in to his path.

  13. MemRook says:

    1 Bale to Deuce. 2 Deuce to Bale. 3 Bale to Deuce. Not a bad partnership growing between the two.

    • Eric says:

      Let’s hope Bale isn’t sold then.

    • biff says:

      Bale and Dempsey have not spent much time on the field together in the last few weeks because of Clint’s injury, but it seemed clear to me during November and early December that they get on well together and that Bale, who is an incredible talent, respects Dempsey and like playing with him.

      (Now would be the time for the Fulham trolls to swoop in and start bad-mouthing Dempsey. But I have a feeling we won’t be hearing much from them today :-))

      • Addick says:

        Would it be trolling to point out that one shouldn’t read too much into this Spurs performance today given they are playing a League 1 side?

      • MLS_Soccer_Talker says:

        There were some Spurs’ fans that were skeptical about Deuce’s talent..But I think Dempsey was pretty respected around the EPL among the players before joining the Spurs.

      • Michael Stypulkoski says:

        Come on, biff, give it a rest. No one around here bad mouths Dempsey, and you know it.

      • Leo says:

        C’mon biff, you know people have short memories around here…

  14. Addick says:

    Lichaj starts for Villa (in what clearly is not a first choice 11). 1-0 Ipswich. BBC match tracker gives the goal to Michael Chopra, but I’ve seen suggestions on a Villa forum that it could be a Lichaj OG. Given has apparently been busy in goal since Ipswich scored.

    • Addick says:

      Now seeing reports that the goal went in off of Cieran Clark. Bent has equalized just after half time.

  15. yikes says:

    i love u Dempseeeey

    seriously Hollywood needs to make a movie about him. This dude has changed what people thought anout American soccer players

  16. Jon says:

    Demba Ba has two. **** off, Torres.

  17. THomas says:

    This is the first time I’ve listened to a soccer game on the radio, and I must say it’s pretty enjoyable.

    Fulham v Blackpool, the bow-legged Greece Captain Giorgios Karagounis tied it up at 1-1 in the 80th minute which what was described as a terrific finish, outside the box to the top left corner.

    • apw40 says:

      And we have a replay! Gentlemen Jim is pretty convinced their goal was aided by a handball, we’ll see on replay. We seemed to control the game though, but of course only the goals matter.

  18. Beckster says:

    Thoughts with Will Packwood who apparently suffered a very serious injury today and was stretchered off with oxygen.

  19. cj says:

    Seeing Danny Potts makes u wonder what could have been if dad had stayed in the US a little bit longer.

    • Mensrea says:


      Maybe I would have had the courage to tell her what was in my heart. We could have built a life together, full of children and laughter. Oh, dearest Isabel, I weep for you even now.

  20. Michael Stypulkoski says:

    Giggs to van Persie. Wow.

  21. TomG says:

    RVP and Giggs just connected on a goal that songs should be written about. RVP’s first touch on a 50 yard screaming long ball was godlike.

  22. Thebumswillalwayslose says:

    So, you know how every once in awhile you see something live and have to go back and watch it again just to make sure you actually saw what you thought you saw? Yeah, the Giggs to RVP goal was one of those moments.

    • ed - houston says:

      no kidding his control of that ball before taking the shot was impressive. i was never a fan of van persie –i knew he was good- until he xfrd to united. he’s incredible.
