Yes. I was impressed by the Sounders' performance last Saturday against San Jose. Fielding a starting lineup cobbled together out of spare parts and held together by bubble gum and bailing wire, Sigi Schmid and the Sounders put in a noteworthy effort against San Jose's first team Starting Eleven. When Jhon Kennedy Hurtado went down at halftime, the Sounders were without the services of 11 men on their 30 man roster.

Here in the US we like to break things into large portions. Halves in football, thirds in hockey, quarters in basketball(eighth's only count in pizza).

Is it my imagination, or is there an increasing polarisation between clubs in the football league? There are those seeking to grow at a pace in line with their means, such as Blackpool, Aston Villa and Arsenal. Those who have Sugar Daddies and so disconnected from the real world. And teams which see borrowing on the promise of future return as the road to success, such as Manchester United, Portsmouth and Liverpool?
