I highly doubt that Porto would swap James Rodriguez or Joao Moutinho for an injury-prone Anderson. I like Anderson, he's a very good midfielder, but he...
Jon has yet to fill out a bio.
Twellman deserved to win an MLS Cup and to go to the World Cup, our struggles left once he left the team
Don't even watch the patriots its like $200. I live about 2 hours away but I have still managed to see them, I saw the 0-0 draw vs Sporting KC and I've also been to the 2007 MLS Cup Final at RFK. Tickets are only like $20.
I am hoping for a playoff run, and it is definitely possible. Our attack is looking much better.
Have you seen the MLS power rankings for Week 12? Its Ridiculous! And do you remember Taylor Twellman as a player? An absolute legend!
nice. what are your thoughts on andre gomes? how good a "playmaker" is he? could he be a world-class player when he reaches his prime? has he been linked with any bigger clubs?
Yes, a great result and I hope we can repeat that vs Toronto. Will you be going to the game? And have you gone to any this year?
The Revs, ever since that 4-1 loss vs New York (ironic), they have been becoming more and more entertaining to watch, and we finally have the best defence in the league. I knew Fagundez starting was a stroke of genius by Heaps. I still wish Imbongo could have at least got a shot off in that chance in the 3rd minute vs Houston (no doubt our best performance, and AWAY from Guilette Stadium.
Do you think we can go for a playoff run? I miss those days.
Hey! Great Performance! We utterly dominated them and deserve the victory this was a great win! But why was Imbongo sent off? Diego's goal was fantastic though!
do you actually think bruma will be as good as ronaldo? i don't think so.
i saw some video clips of him, and he didn't exactly seem like a prodigy to me, put it that way. However hearing many of the positive remarks about him, and seeing his relative unpredictability on the ball, i think he will be a very good player in the future! who do you think he will sign for then? should man united have a good think about getting him by any chance????
who are the best young portugese players ( under 21) and how good are they?
hi jon, i see you are allan jiang's BR buddy :)
could you share your knowledge of portugese football with me as well, please? :) you're a benfica fan, right?
Commiserations for the dramatic UEFA Europa League loss.
I know how you feel because I watched Andrés Iniesta break my heart a few years back in the 'Tom Henning Øvrebø game.'
Jon, it's been awful for you, especially with Kelvin's goal in the O Clássico.
Personally, I'm so happy that Chelsea won another European title.
However, from an objective perspective, Benfica easily outplayed the Blues in the first-half, and should have scored at least twice.
Chelsea weren't as bad in the second-half with Frank Lampard centimetres from scoring, though Benfica again pulled the Blues out of position time after time with their intricate attacking moves.
The turning point of the game was when Jardel came on.
He has woeful positioning and whilst he is a threat from the set-piece, he's also odds on to put the ball in his own net or miss a defensive assignment.
Sure enough, that happened which resulted in Branislav Ivanović scoring the winning goal.
The only respite for Jardel is that whenever people google him, Mario Jardel comes up instead of Jardel Nivaldo Vieira.
Hopefully for Benfica fans like you, Pacos Ferreira can cause a monumental upset vs. Porto.
Hi John -
Me being where I am (Hong Kong), I don't get much coverage of the Liverpool youth team matches, but I try to follow when I get the chance. From what I've seen and read, it seems that Teixeira has plenty of potential. We both know what he's capable of, and it seems that he's starting to do that on a regular basis for the U21's now. The back injury certainly didn't help his start, and I believe there are long-term concerns on that front, so the medical team will need to be at their best for this one.
Hope this helps somewhat.
