2. Jurgen Klinsmann has been on the job for nearly two years and we are only a year away from the World Cup in Brazil. Outside of Howard, Bradley, Jones, and Dempsey, does he have any idea who the other 19 players will be? That's my biggest concern as we continue with qualifying. There has been no consistency from one camp to the next. It doesn't seem like any player knows where he stands.
3. The hits keep coming for Liverpool supporters. Another year without Champions League football. Luis Suarez wants out. But the real kicker is the away kit for next season. Best description so far - it's a Christmas jumper and Space Invaders all rolled into one.
4. Team A hosts Team B at their national stadium. Team A starting lineup is represented from the following clubs: Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Chelsea, Everton, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United. Team B starters play for these clubs: Milwall, Sunderland, Everton, Leicester City, Reading, Stoke City, Stoke City, Wigan, Spartak Moscow, Los Angeles Galaxy, and West Brom. Who won?
6. Mark Hughes < Tony Pulis.
7. How about the Revolution?! Winners of three-straight league games, including a 5-0 thrashing of Los Angeles Galaxy this past Sunday. Picking up Juan Agudelo could end up being the transaction of the season, and it's fun to watch Jay Heaps put out an attacking lineup each game. Revolution supporters can take a peak ahead at a favorable June schedule and start talking about the playoffs.
8. Imagine heading to coaching school and in your group is Joey Barton! Mr. Barton is currently in Northern Ireland finishing up his UEFA B. His post-match press conferences will become legendary.
9. The Special One officially returns to Stamford Bridge. With the changing of the guard at Manchester United, along with a first-time manager in the Premier League at Manchester City, and Arsenal destined to only finish in fourth...Cheslea could be the favorite to win the Premier League next season.
11. Team A and Team B played to a 1-1 draw. Maybe English players are overvalued in the Premier League. Or is it the Irish players are undervalued?
12. Klinsmann's men scored 6 goals against two of the top sides in Europe last week. The problem was they gave up 7. Look for more of the same in the next three matches in World Cup qualifying.
13. On a side note losing a co-ed soccer game is never fun, but losing to a team wearing Chelsea jerseys is the absolute worst.
