What, no football (soccer) fans?
I have a collegue that like Chelsea and a collegue that like MU, both currently working in our London office. They weren't talking last week.
So, how is it that England didn't make EURO 2008:
I was pulling for Chelsea, tired of MU always winning. But, by the way Chelsea fans, you can't have Torres
It's ON Saturday. I hope someone knocks Rooney in to the middle of next week. That hack may have cost the NT the cup a couple years ago with his stupidity.
I'm confused. My info says that The Reds are playing Chelsea today at
14:45 ET. That was almost 4 hours ago but I don't see any scores or stats so it looks like the match hasn't started. What''s up with dat?
Aha, it is now updating. 1:1 at half found it on ESPN 360 live
Crap! I wish I had forgotten about it. They would lose the game I actually was able to watch..

Rematch at Chelsea coming up this afternoon. I hope the Reds can even things up.
Off to a decent start, 2-0 at 35
Rats, they couldn't hold the lead, tie game, down 2 cumulative again with 15 to go.
What a game!
OK Congrats to Chelsea for the aggregate win.
Well played. Lampard's second goal was freakin' awesome.

But the takeover by the New England Sports Ventures requires resolution of a legal dispute with the Reds' American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
The Premier League hopes to "complete all the necessary processes by Friday 8 October so the sale can proceed".
So, I heard about this awhile back and now it looks like it is going to happen. What are the thoughts across the pond about some of us yanks buying the Reds? Honestly the Reds have always been my favorite team and they currently really suck. I'm hoping this can turn them around... but I have no idea how it could do that specifically other than just things changing in general. Maybe Torres can get better medical care? haha...
I'm not liking the new Liverpool management, jerseys, or results So, I haven't been following the Premiere League much lately
I liked the Carlsberg Edition (and results) much better. I do look forward to more NT action as things ramp up again.
It's #8 Gerrard
The Carlsberg jerseys were brilliant without a doubt, but it's also true that the Reds never won the Premiership with them.
It seems we finally have the right manager and the right owners in place, next season should be good!
Did Liverpool ever win a title period? I haven't really been following it much this year. I pay a bit more attention when the WC buzz picks up. As for ownership, I wonder how Boston fans would welcome a British owner for their Red Sox? Makes no sense to me.
Liverpool have won the title 18 times, just not since 1990.
To your second point, football (soccer) has moved very far from its roots as a locally based sport. Most big teams are run as international corporations and foreign ownership (for good or bad) is something normal now.
Yeah ESPN moved the game from ESPN2 to ESPN today to try and draw a bigger crowd from the live lead in with SportsCenter.
2nd half is about to kick off. With Man City putting one in hopefully Sir Alex will throw another man forward and not play for the tie now. Looking to be a shootout of a second half.
Its going to be on ESPN3 as well. Hoping for a slow afternoon at work.
I want to bring up a debate here. I was arguing with my brother yesterday after the match about how popular Soccer is in the US. There is the obvious pecking order of Tier 1 sports that I don't think Soccer has broken into. However of the "Tier 2" sports like Soccer, Tennis, Golf, NASCAR, etc. where do you think Soccer falls?
I think it ranks ahead of Tennis and Golf, he says behind golf definitely and probably behind tennis. Being the typical American he is it doesn't matter that yesterdays Manchester Derby pulled 4x the viewership of the Super Bowl because "it isn't big in the US and that is where you live." Where do you think Soccer falls?
