Brazil and Mexico, Live Comments

My comments as they happened live during the Mexico-Brazil football match at the 2014 World Cup. Before kickoff:  Man, Mexico is talking a lot of smack before this game.  Can’t wait to see Brazil run wild over Mexico. Actually, I would like CONCACAF to continue to play well; however, Mexico doesn’t have a chance. Brazil are the favorites, but Germany would be the team...

Germany, Pepe, and Injuries 0

Germany, Pepe, and Injuries

What did we learn? Germany is good.  Real good. Admittedly, I only saw the first half of this game.  But what did that really matter? The game was decided  in the first half.  3-0 at halftime and Pepe had already been sent off told me everything I needed to know going forward.  The second half was just a German practice for the knockout stages....

Belgium 2 – 1 Algeria

Algeria have a history of being tough to break down. They aren’t very good going forward though. No goals this time from open play. Just a stupid penalty. I say stupid because Vertonghen was woefully out of position…but he was also being played out of his normal position, so how much is on him and how much is on the manager? I had started writing...

FIFA14 – D.C. United Year 2

  Arnaud got hurt and retired mid-season. That was good as far as I was concerned, because I was giving Jeffrey playing time anyway. At the time, I was still trying to get my $7 million for Martial. Sadly, I had to sell Luis Silva and Chris Pontius to raise the money for Martial, but with Deleon only a point behind Pontius and Rolfe...

My First NASL Match

Anything today other than Donovan seems out of place, but I started working on this article before the roster was announced yesterday. Evan and I will discuss Donovan, the USMNT, and all of the World Cup squads tomorrow at 10AM US ET (and will be available as a podcast some time later tomorrow). As I mentioned I would, I went to my first North American...

Thoughts without WiFi

It isn’t often I find myself without WiFi. If the WiFi goes out at home, I still have the PS3 to distract me/allow me to create content for the site through FIFA 14. I also generally have some sort of chore I could do. Neither is true roaming the streets of Washington, DC. It was 10:15 when I started this article, and as I...

Mixed Feelings: FIFA 14 with Malmö Year 2

  No one likes losing, but if things are too easy, they aren’t fun. I just lost the Champions Cup final to Real Madrid 2-0. Hamad got a red card (I never get red cards!) and that sealed my fate, but I was already down a goal and chasing the game. I won all of my other competitions. Projovic from Djurgardens got player of...

EA Sports FIFA 14 BPL Challenge

FIFA is doing an interesting thing with these end of season tournaments. After you win the first one, the prizes go up! I don’t know if they’ll continue to do that, but you’ll want to leave yourself time to play through the tournaments twice. Also, the BPL tournament has 3-minute halfs, so it won’t take you as long to finish. Even after you win...
