Why do Liverpool pundits hate Arsenal so much?

Liverpool Pundits by Galen Whenever Liverpool pundits seem to talk about Arsenal I always feel as if they should be working on Liverpool TV rather than working at Sky or BT sport. Let me start with ... Phil Thompson. This is what he had to say after Arsenal confirmed the signing of Alexis Sanchez . [.

Trade Official, Rapids Get Draft Pick

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
Here's the official announcement, the Rapids get a conditional draft pick from Chicago in exchange for Wells Thompson.

There's a good deal of consternation in the on-line Rapids fanbase about wells asking to be traded to find playing time, but it doesn't bother me. Look at what's happened this season:

*Wells was on pace for 727 minutes this year, his lowest season total of his career.

Wells To Chicago, But For What?

No Thompson Trade Yet

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
The team has confirmed that Wells has asked for a trade to find more playing time but states that no deal is complete yet. Roster freeze date is Saturday, so safe bet he'll be traded sometime this week (I'm guessing an official announcement tomorrow).

A Horrible Week Comes To A Lousy End

More of the same from the Rapids. Boneheaded defending combined with a complete lack of creativity led to a 2-0 loss and the loss of the Rocky Mountain Cup, again. I won't discuss the Rapids offense because there was none. 0 shots on goal in the game. On the defense things were relatively solid until Wynne brain-locked again.

Well...That Sucked

A reverse MLS Cup. In Toronto Dallas scored first and then gave up two goals. Saturday night we scored first and then gave up two goals. Other than that, if you saw the Seattle loss or the Vancouver loss or the San Jose loss then you saw this game. I'm not going to spend any time rehashing what we already know.

From Friday's game preview:
Prediction: 0-0 draw. I expect some ugly soccer tomorrow. One team is an expansion team and one team is missing up to 7 starters. There will be a lot of tentative, conservative play and no scoring.
OK, so I was way off on the scoreline, but I was right about the ugly soccer.

The Rapids got beat down in the Big Apple. The game was over in 7 minutes and it wasn't undeserved. A horrible performance from our midfield and the defense wasn't much better. I'm not going to spend much time recapping the game, but lets take a look at the 5 goals. To start the disaster, Ross LaBauex sent Henry free on Pickens with a great through ball.

One Last Friendly To End the Preseason

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
The Colorado Rapids faced the Colorado School Of Mines yesterday at the Dick in one last preseason friendly before Saturday's season opener. Not surprisingly the side in burgundy didn't find much of a challenge against a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference school, winning 4-0. Here's the starting XI:

Cascio - Cummings - RiveroLarentowicz - Castrillon - MastroeniZapata - Marshall - Wynne - KimuraPickens
Amarikwa for Cummings at half
Mullan for Rivero at 58
Thompson for Cascio at 63
Akpan for Castrillon at 68
Palguta for Wynne at 70
Yamada for Larentowicz at 75

The only regular not to play was Moor, who I'm guessing got the day off to rest his tweaked hamstring.

Colorado Loses To Yokohama

Last night (well technically early this morning) the Rapids lost 2-1 to Yokohama FC of the Japanese 2nd division. A 10 minute spell in the second half saw Colorado give up two goals and they couldn't climb back out of the hole. The starting XI for the burgundy boys (seen above):

Cascio - Cummings - MullanLarentowicz - Castrillon - MastroeniZapata - Moor - Wynne - KimuraPickens
With the exception of the injured Casey I think that's pretty close to our starting XI right now.

No Eddie Johnson In Commerce City

Yesterday Montreal used its #1 spot in the allocation order to take Eddie Johnson with the idea of trading him. Colorado was the expected destination but at the last minute Seattle swooped in, trading Mike Fucito and Lamar Neagle for him.

At that price I'm fine with not getting Eddie Johnson.

Championship Snapshot: Michael Brown Ends Jem Karacan’s Season Using Nothing But His Gooch

Skip back to Friday afternoon and Reading kept their timely streak going, beating Leeds 2-0 to temporarily yomp to the top of the Championship thanks to Adam Le Fondre's late double.

As expected, there were a few choice tackles over the course of the game (Leeds' Zac Thompson was sent-off after 13 minutes) with Reading's Jem Karacan finding himself on the receiving end of several 'robust' tackles before Michael Brown's flying gooch-first lunge finally caused the Turkish-ish midfielder to limp off with the 23-year old eventually leaving the Madjeski on crutches.

Drew Moor and Marvell Wynne have formed a good partnership at the heart of the Colorado defense over the past few years but the New York game last week exposed one major weakness, namely Drew Moor's pace. Moor was caught out a number of times against New York especially against Kenny Cooper for NYRB's second goal.
