Gladbach (the Bundesliga team I have a huge soft spot for) are leading 2-nil in Dortmund just before halftime.

Villa has been Chelsea's bogey team for a while now.

Ibra is one of those guys that once in a while remind you why you love and watch the game.

He's a nutcase but man he is so good. Had he played in England he would have been better appreciated in his time.

You know ManU is no longer elite when their defenders aren't allowed to get away with mayhem in the penalty area any longer.

125 - Liverpool have now won 125 penalties in Premier League history, more than any other side. Landmark.

126 now with Vidic one.

I don't think he is nutcase, I just think he is incredibly arrogant and confident in himself. He's pretty much viewed as one of the top 5 strikers in the world so I think he is pretty appreciated.

How United fans have yet to boo Moyes & Co off the park I'll never know. I think the sample size is large enough to say that it isn't going to work.

I can only surmise that these lemmings believe that to criticize Moyes is to criticize the man who chose him, who for some reason continues to lurk about the club like a creepy uncle at a dance recital.

I loved the dude in Pipers yesterday on the Joe Allen penalty.... "That was a foul, but not a penalty"

The top 4 is set, though the order is anyone's guess. As for the relegation fight:

Image

Stoke and Villa play this week, with the winner moving out of the relegation battle. The loser probably is safe anyway but has to wait a little longer. West Ham and Swansea have enough talent that they should be safe but as long as they're in the fight it's a worry...and Swansea haven't played well lately. Sunderland has 3 games in hand but they don't have a terribly deep squad so they could get taxed. Fulham managed to win last week to give themselves a prayer of survival. Cardiff are likely toast.

Bayern's Julian Green has chosen to represent the US.

I'm guessing he's been promised a WC spot, which is no big thing considering how he'll only supplant someone like Davis or Shea.

He probably won't tip the balance this summer, but if he realizes at least some of his promise he should be a useful player for years to come.

I saw this too. I have no problem with him bumping a fringe guy like Davis or Shea. I'm pretty sure neither of those guys will be any use at all against teams like Portugal or Germany. At least with an unknown with potential, you figure there's chance he could come in and actually be a spark off the bench.

I'm hoping his paperwork gets approved in time to play in the Mexico friendly in a couple weeks so I can actually get an idea of his talent for myself.

The nightmare scenario is ManU somehow winning the Champs League and stealing a spot.

Gaucho,

How is Kaiserslautern viewed in Germany? I know they've won some titles in the past and did the whole promotion to Bundesliga champs thing in one season with Ballack being there briefly before moving on.

I had never heard of them until Klose took the '02 WC by storm. Are they viewed as a big club? In recent times, it seems like they are a yo-yo club.

Small-town club with an inflated sense of entitlement and notoriously impertinent fans.

Truth be told, they used to be pretty big, probably one of the richest in tradition in German football, half the WC team of 1954 played for Kaiserlauterm, the Walter brothers among them. Being form a very small city, they've always been dependent on monies from the community and the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. I think they're slowly coming to realize that they'll be unable to compete in the modern landscape.
