Arsenal starting: Martinez, Jenkinson, Djourou, Koscielny, Miquel, Coquelin, Frimpong, Walcott, Arshavin, Gnabry, Chamakh and down 3-0 to Reading at 20'
I guess Football League Cup is a throwaway?

They were down 4-0 at the half. Crazy.

I cannot stand Giroud. Please get off of the field.

Yeah, Giroud seems kind of like a French Andy Carroll to me...

And now an obvious, but ridiculously unnecessary penalty...

Man. The SMU vs. Memphis game I watched last night was much more entertaining than this mess.

Second yellow for Wilshere... that's what, his 3rd, 4th foul since his first yellow? Some might say, "Two games in a row where United gets the man advantage," but that was deserved (moreso than the Torres 2nd yellow).

Agreed on the quality of the game. United should be up by more, to be honest, but for the missed penalty + a good save by Mannone / weak shot by RvP. Arsenal has looked a bit weak & slow, with United running a very aggressive style (until Wilshere's 2nd yellow). It's currently 10 attempted shots for United to Arsenal's 2, I believe. That sums up the game.

Anyone watch the Seattle/RSL game last night? I thought is was a very entertaining game for a 0-0.

I didn't see it, but I have caught a couple Seattle games and a couple RSL games over the course of the season. It seems that generally both are enjoyable to watch. If I remember, I'll try to watch the DC/Red Bull game tonight.

Well, the EPL table seems to be rounding into expected form 10 games in. Man U, City, and Chelsea are separating themselves at the top. Reading, Southampton, and QPR are firmly in the relegation zone (though, of course, they all have at least a game in hand). The only mild surprise is that Everton is in 4th now over Spurs and Arsenal. However, it's kind of crazy that even though Spurs and Arsenal have generally been poor (or least playing below expectations), they're basically on course to finish where everyone would have predicted: 4th and 5th.

MLS semifinals (those on national TV, at least) have been pretty dreadful for me. IIRC all three goals have been from two GK errors and an own goal. The LA quarterfinal has been the only game worth watching so far.

God only knows why Giroud continues to play for Arsenal; at least Walcott has his speed to exploit. In either case, if they finish top four it'll only be because Tottenham falter.

I saw the Redbull/DC game and the 2nd half of LA/San Jose. I thought that the first game at least had that playoff intensity, even if the goals were kind of garbage. I found the second game to be more boring. It seemed San Jose was just content to sit back and counter occasionally and got really lucky to get that free kick goal in stoppage time.

After watching the games last night I really think NY is the most deplorable team in the league. Their designated players cost them the game and are ugly to watch, from Henry's sulking and idiotic encroachment on the penalty; to Marquez' thuggery- I really can't stand them. It seems like Dax McCarty cries to ref every time his team loses possession. I do like Tim Cahill, though.

Is it me, or to MLS players berate officials more than any other league? I mean for clear fouls or insignificant calls? I actually thought the ref had a good game in the NY/DC game.

The Seattle/RSL game wasn't quite up to the quality of their first leg, IMO, but it was a heck of a goal by the seattle player (can't remember his name).

Pulling for Seattle to win it all.

Really starting to get into the MLS this year. Would love for an MLS team to come to Pittsburgh, but I think that is just wishful thinking.

I'd love it too. My friend in Portland got me into the MLS a little bit this year, so, I can't really root for Seattle if I want to maintain that friendship. :P

Wow, Arsenal-Fulham are tied at 2 just before the half. It's been a pretty good game.

Yeah, the Redbulls remind me of the early-mid 2000s Rangers--they bring in all sorts of high-priced, over-hyped players without regard for chemistry or balance and get all indignant when they don't win. It is satisfying to see them lose.

I didn't see the 1st leg of Seattle/RSL, but I thought the 2nd leg was pretty good. Both teams moved the ball around well, created chances, and the fans were into it the whole game. These teams have clearly evolved beyond the traditional American/MLS style of scrapping and working hard, but doing so without much fluid, well-orchestrated passing.

Well, that was a crazy ending. I agree with the commentators that the PK call was weak, so it does seem fair that Arteta missed.
