Some Soccer News for Oct 4, 2016

It's Day 278 of 2016.

The donkeys have been braying for 30 hours all around Wales and England that Bob Bradley is NOT the man to lead Swansea City. They have listed every lame ass excuse you can imagine. And a couple of legit ones too. But its about 90/10 to the lame.
  • Someone in Wales appears to have turned a corner on Bradley, at least a little. "His experiences in [Egypt] suggest he isn't a man who is unnerved easily." By Mat Davies of the South Wales Evening Post.


Best MLS goals of last week:


Rumblings out of LA say Robbie Keane has refused to talk to the press for about a month now. And FWIW a month ago is when Landon Donovan returned to the team.


If you are using Opiates or Heroin please ask for help. There is a lot of help out there. Do not feel ashamed or embarrassed about asking for help or being an addict. Just find help.

Bruce, I think most of the anti-Bradley stuff is based in fear that we (the US) might some day figure out how to make Soccer really work here in the States and then get our Men's team to play like our Women's team does already....that has got to scare the rest of the world. Think of our Olympic domination, that has got to stick in the craw of the rest of the wold and just make them more sick of us then they already are....
