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.

Bemidji State's undefeated run comes to an end in the DII playoffs. They have been eliminated by last year's champion, Central Missouri State.

Edit: Make that Central Missouri University.

I know you guys have called me 'neg nelly' and stuff about United. I get, I have been. Let this sync in for a second though to help you get where I'm coming from.

The "building from within" United, in year 2 - Bottom of the league, didn't sniff the playoffs.

Their expansion cousins - 2nd best team in the league by 7 points and are playing for the Championship tonight.

They are operating very MN-like. It's why I've been so down on them.

And, to keep Joe going, our Gunners got another 3 today. Worst offside decision i've seen in a long time. It didn't need to be that tight.

Your soon-to-be MLS champs the MN United Loons (could go both ways btw - ducks and ppl out of their minds)


Atlanta won the MLS cup in their 2nd year. I praised them for going balls to the wall while the "Loons" were being a typical MN franchise. AKA cheap.

But, to answer your question, both. Arsenal are English.

Damn. First loss in something like 20 matches! But, we're in the hunt right now. And, a lot of the younger guys look really good. Guendouzi plays well every time he gets a chance on the field. Tottenham will be a test tomorrow.
