So why wouldn't you just kick it right at the goalkeep during overtime kicks?

That's what I would coach.

Don't you look reallllllly dumb, that time when the keeper just stands there and catches it?

It's a valid tactic but it's saved a lot of the time. Keepers these days are usually very tall (6'3+). Even when they dive to either side their legs are still in the middle of the goal so there's a decent chance they can get a piece of it. This scenario actually played out during the WC this year.

On the other hand if you can bury one upper/lower corner with pace, it's pretty much unstoppable.

Gunners are looking decent today. The defense still looks like a Chinese fire drill at times, though.

Good result. 3-1. Positive progress is good.

What happened to Bellerin's potential? He looks like crap so far this entire year. His positioning has always been suspect but his speed is even gone. He's getting straight up beat to the outside pretty commonly.

He looks lost for long stretches during games. We have to look for a really good stay behind the line d guy, like Ferdinand. When Nacho is your star in the back, there is a problem.

We looked much better with Torreira on the pitch. That pushed Xhaka up the field where he belongs. He's a good offensive player. Can spray the ball and has a cannon of a shot. His 2 biggest problems are:

1. He's not very athletic for this level
2. He sucks as a D covering mid. Was never his game but Wenger tried to pigeonhole him there

You're right though. When Monreal is the #1 star.....that's pretty troubling. Like the guy, but come on. Can we get 2 CB's that are capable?

Clint Dempsey retires from the National Team and the Sounders

One of the few names I knew a little something about.

I'm surprised about Seattle but not the Nats. He wasn't getting called up anymore and a lot of guys end their National career to try and prolong their professional careers. He could have been an all time great had he chose to stay in Europe IMO.

Bournemouth is playing Chelsea to a standstill today. That's surprising.
