Club ball back in full effect.

Manchester City and Newcastle both look for the beatdown versus each other to remain unbeaten.

Tiote & Toure will battle in the middle for the right to remain on top...

    Arsenal have dominated this games and have created numerous chances, but somehow it’s 1-1. Do Canaries have nine lives too?

      Have you seen all of the ridiculous goal line clearances Norwich players have made? Crazy.

        The one cleared from Walcott was just ridiculous, not sure how Martin did that. The other ‘clearances’ were down to bad finishing if that makes sense. They should never have been allowed to happen, Arsenal should have buried them – rather than spectacular defending…

    Per Mertsacker is a train wreck. If that was an American player the press would have dressed him down that much further like they do when Tim Howard gives up goals.

    Walcott–over the past few games–looks like he’s understanding the game better. Great to see for Arsenal and England.

      Mertesacker is a joke. The guy has less strength than Goodson and basically just tripped over his own feet giving up that goal.

      Now now, Matt. Let’s not get all Alexi Lalas on us! It was horrendous defending, that required Mertesacker to deal with it. Let’s be fair, he dilly dallied on the ball in his own box and got caught. It should never have happened.

      Walcott is on fire. I have been saying this for a few seasons now that he’s legit. Hopefully he can stay fit. Would like to see and England offensive four of Walcott, Johnson, Rooney and Gerrard. Hopefully we’ll see this next summer. But knowing Capello he’ll take SWP…

    Is there a fixture between two top teams (within their own league) as consistently entertaining as Bayern-Dortmund over the past two years? Discuss.

      uhhhh….. Toronto and Vancouver?

      DORTMUND!!! What a win! There is some club soccer to get excited about this year thankfully. That game would be good viewing for Defending 101. Excellent defending from both sides.

    New USMNT away kit?:

    Don’t like the huge box for the name/number. Stripes should go all the way ’round.

      I agree with the huge box analysis (that’s what she said.)


      Does this mean USA fans can finally cheer “C’mon the Hoops!”?
