Guzan to Hull on 1 Month Loan

Unable to unseat Friedel, Guzan makes a 1 month move to Hull in the Championship to get some regular playing time.

Good move for Guzan, as he's played well for the US, but at the moment, that seems to be the only game action he's getting behind the stalwart between the pipes that is Friedel.

EPL: Blackpool v Man City Highlights

EPL: Manchester United v WBA HIghlights

If you caught this game, you also caught Rooney's first goal in 10 matches. Chicharito, Berbatov, Nani, Park Il Sung, Vidic and Darren Fletcher all scored more goals in that period of time. Hmmm, seems a great use of team resources.

It's On Like Donkey Kong

In a not so surprising move, the Asian federation supports the move of the 2022 WC to the winter.

Why not surprising? A Qatari national is at it's head. That said, several high powered clubs like Barcelona have said no.
"We have traditions. We have business in place. We have contracts in place," he [AC Milan Director Gandini] said. "It would be complicated. I'm not saying it's not possible but it would require a lot of negotiations, a lot of discussions and it would probably affect not only 2022 but 2021 as well."
And they have a valid point.

But, as we've seen in the past, what FIFA wants, FIFA gets. If clubs and countries wanted to pull out of FIFA, now would be the time. Think about it. Who supports the clubs? And who has more supporters? Clubs or FIFA?

Will it happen? Nope. And sad to say, this may end up costing FIFA, and by proxy Qatar, big. FIFA paid out for the empty seats and lack of complete stadiums for the 2010 WC in South Africa. It may have to do the same to sponsors if contracts are not fulfilled, and that could cost FIFA huge.

EPL: Bolton v Chelsea Highlights

Malouda connects on a Drogba cross to score the lone goal as Chelsea moves back up the table. Holden is denied a call when Terry handles a shot like Michael Jordan. Chelsea over Bolton, 1-0.

EPL: Liverpool v Wigan Highlights

It's just not a good week for Hodgson. Benitez is fired from Inter and fans want him back, his team is mid table almost half way through the season, then he drops one 1-0 to Wolves...

EPL: Arsenal v Wigan Highlights

How bad was the game for Arsenal today? How bout despite being a man up, they scored an own goal and drew Wigan away, 2-2. It could have been worse, though. They could have been Liverpool...

EPL: Birmingham v Manchester United Highlights

Berbatov scores yet again and Rooney fails to even make himself known before a last minute goal by Bowyer saves Birmingham from dropping points at home. Final 1-1.

EPL: Newcastle v Tottenham Highlights

Sorry some of the posting of highlights have been sporatic. Too busy enjoying the nice Miami weather as opposed to cold as heck Wisconsin. Anyways, if you haven't been keeping up with your Mr.X Bale goal watch, then you missed another that brought his total to 10 for the EPL season. En fuego. That goal topped off a great game by Lennon who also put one past Newcastle for a 2-0 win for Spurs. All this in spite of Kaboul being stupid and putting Spurs down to 10 men in a win for the 2nd time in 2 games.
