Maurice Edu officially signed for Stoke earlier. So that's another American in a top European League.
Oh yeah, well done Atletico Madrid. Chelsea got an absolute ass whooping in Monte Carlo.

damn, Liverpool got merkd this window.
Really wish Wenger signed a midfielder to replace Song and a striker, but its is what it is. This club just wants 4th place and they probably got it.

but Theo is a rubbish player. He is amazing because of that. Rubbish player but some how gets goals and assists. I dont say that with sarcasm either, I just dont get Theo.

That's Theo. He's rubbish but great for rubbish? OR is he seriously on the verge of awesome but will never get over that hump?
As with most things, I think Wenger's role hurts him. Maybe it pains me to say but the Wenger mystique is wearing off for me. He does a lot of things right, finishing fourth with the squads he puts together, is a testament to his ability BUT it's fourth.
Watching more and more of Man City and United and their speed of play in the attacking third is much higher AND they put the ball at risk more. Arsenal play much too slow and much to conservative—got to make those calculated risks to breakthrough the organized defenses. Additionally, when you play fast, it forces the the other team to defend faster and mistakes happen. Arsenal don't score too many scrappy goals or deflections or crossed headers—they almost don't want goals that aren't perfect.
Dempsey ended up at 'Spurs after all.
Its not Wenger, the kid just isnt a good footballer. But he is amazing in that he can look like he has never played football for 89 minutes and then do something incredible whether it be a cross, a run, something and creates magic. The problem is patience.
The gelling will improve results but this is how they've always played under Wenger. They used to love to counter but teams took that away, so now they must get into these pitched battles. It's a style that's better, duh as is any style, that works best with established, top level pros.
US Women's coach Pia Sundhage leaves US Team to pursue Swedish opportunities
She was a good women's coachU.S. Women’s National Team head coach Pia Sundhage has decided to return home to pursue opportunities in Sweden.
“After the Olympics we had discussions and early in the process it became clear that Pia was very interested in returning home to Sweden,” said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati. “It certainly wasn’t an easy decision for U.S. Soccer or Pia. She deserves a tremendous amount of credit for the amazing success the U.S. Women’s National Team had during the past five years. On behalf of U.S. Soccer, we sincerely appreciate Pia’s hard work, dedication and commitment to the organization. We wish her all the best in the future.”
Hopefully the US Women continue their brand of success in world football. They are the best!

Really enjoyed Hearts BTW. FAR friendlier place than Glasgow. (Go figure, lol.). Had a great afternoon around the Haymarket. Just a pity I had to back on the Friday as it turned into a legendary bevvie session for the lads that stayed through Saturday. General consensus was that it's now in the top 10/15 Euro aways. And these are boys with 100 plus and more European away's under their belts. So that's high praise indeed.
The less said about the actual game the better.
