Time to Man Up

I think the picture captures how I feel. I'm still in shock as to how we could give away a one goal lead in the final seconds of the match, but I guess that's just the funny game of football. C...

Could Have Been Worse

My Internet is still down, so I'm sneaking on the office computer. I probably won't be back up to running full speed until at least a week. Sorry for the lack of posting. We get the Gunners in...

Liverpool: One win away from the Champions League last 16

Phew, that was close! In many ways, tonight's game was very similar to how I believe our season will go. We start well (Torres 1-0) but go through a tough spell (concede to Lisandro) before...

Liverpool vs Toulouse II: the line-up

Leto to start!!! Now I'm freakin' pumped for a match I was otherwise dreading. If Leto plays as well as he did in the preseason, this should be a hella fun match to watch. The kid has the ability...
