Balotelli
Never really liked the guy after all his self-praising. But after I saw him play, he's alright with me. I prefer strikers like him and Benzema than to pacey ones like Messi. (I'm not implying they're better than Messi)

Yeah but after the match he ran away because he was angry at the other members of his team because Italy lost because of "their" fault.

I think Balotelli was just showing his passion, I don't think he blamed anybody.

Wow, did Spain kick it up a notch for the final or what! I saw the team sheets and thought there's no way they are winning this playing a 4-6-0 formation, they only just scraped through every game so far. They were outstanding, no more sideways passing just for the sake of it, they went out and created chances. Italy never played bad, Spain were just at their very best.

I hear he and his brother cheered for their country during the Italy v Germany semifinal.

I've been asked to pick which Man Utd tickets I'd like from the following:
29/09/2012 - Tottenham
20/10/2012 - Stoke City
24/11/2012 - QPR
15/12/2012 - Sunderland
29/12/2012 - West Brom
12/01/2013 - Liverpool
29/01/2013 - Southampton
02/03/2013 - Norwich
16/03/2013 - Reading
04/05/2013 - Chelsea

They come with the usual box and pre match meal at Old Trafford. I'm fancying Tottenham and Liverpool.

Oh god. FC Dallas turned from the best team to the worst within a year (along with the Dallas Mavericks)

Two Years ago, Dallas was Sports City Big D

Damn sucks to live in Dallas right now

They usually are but FC Dallas is also usually one of the best. And people were actually thinking we were the best when we went to the MLS Cup for the first time in history (or at least I think it was). But we lost off a last minute goal. Then the FC Dallas didn't even make the playoffs (or tourney, whatever you wanna call it) and now we are literally the worst in the league

Lots of goals, usually, since the defence tactics are quite poor. If you're watching on TV, the camera sucks too; its a camera attached on a high perch right in the middle. However, I'd still watch it cause its f*cking football!

Comparing to the English football most teams would end up in the League 1 and a few in the championship league.

Lots of goals sounds good. I might see if I can find a TV station that shows MLS. Probably ESPN if any of them.

MLS is on Fox Soccer and sometimes ESPN when Fox Soccer is airing a game that will get them more money

They are the best on paper, kinda like Man.United. Not saying that they are bad.

Be wary though, the atmosphere in the stadium is quite dull. No anthems or songs, just a bunch of guys yelling and clapping when someone scores.

I don't blame them really, 'soccer' is relatively new to them. The only other 'american' sport I watch is basketball, where all they yell is 'defense' and 'offense'. No offence.

It's the same at Hull City. We have a tiny corner next to the away fans where the hooligans go to banter and I always sit with them, anywhere else in the ground it's quiet with the odd bit of clapping.

New season's almost up! Pre-season matches are on what your opinions? Chelsea's two main transfers Marin and Hazard scored in their pre-season friendly against US native Seattle Sounders.
