ANyone tell me the name of the very young amercian lad that plays professional but Man Utd and Chelsea have been looking at him. I think he is about 15 or 16 and might be called freddie or something like that. Is he in the USA squad for the World Cup??

It just seemed to me that you seemed extremely offended by the comment I made about the Italian soccer scandal (and also about hate-speech crimes).

I just thought it safe to assume that if you're going to dish out the dirt, you can take it as well, which I hope is the case.

Naaa! I think all went about misunderstanding, i thought you were a bit upset because of my mocking, that's why I thought you had a bad reaction! It seemes it was not the case, so I'm sorry if I went a bit over! But I wasn't neither offended! I have interpreted your answer thinking you were offended! Ouff, what a mess!
You know, it can happen when you don't hear the tone of a voice, only reading can sometimes lead astray!

We're having lots of talk about the italian disaster, by now I'm in a state between surrealism and grotesque, every day there's coming out more and more, but it's going in the right direction. Many new people got into the football federation and the magistrates have everything under control, and they're kicking many backs. Let's see, but it will need its time, there's really a lot of dirt!


Speedracer, friends again?

Freddy Adu is his name. Not sure if he's in the USA's world cup squad. i haven't seen it. I read a while ago that his first choice team is Man United.

Thats the lad. Supposed to be an unbelievable player and very young. When I get a chance today (ie I stop posting on this addictive site and my site and do some work!) I will look up the USA team!

Yes, I have heard of Freddy Adu as a new talent, too. There was dissatisfaction In Usa because Arena didn't nominate him, isn't it?

He's supposed to be about 15 or 16 but there's rumours that he's actually older than that because he's originally from Ghana and apparently African passports are quite dodgy.

I heard that Kanu is actually about 36!

Rooney - it will be a gamble to take him for the knock out stages! i actually think that after Greens injury yesterday Sven should take an extra striker and two keepers then the gamble is less of a risk.

so Freddy hasnt been picked Babyman. any of our usa members let us know what they think of this and how good is the lad?

sometimes Kanu moves at the pace of a 63 year old when he cant be bothered. good player when he can!

I think Rooney will be England's jolly, if the rest of team goes well, and by rest of the team I'm referring mostly to Beckham, Lampard, Gerrard, Owen.............Rooney can be the added force.

Kanu................i remember Inter saved his life. He had a serious heart problem, and Ajax left him play.........if he would have stood another year at Ajax he would have died on the field.

Beckham is still the first name I would put on the teamsheet.

I hope to see

Robinson (at last a solid keeper)
Cole (top class)
Ferdinand (top class)
Terry (the best central defender of the lot and next England Captain)
Neville G (even though I hate him - wish Young had been fit)
Beckham (Captain and new captain Marvel - this will be his tournament)
Gerrard (Sheer sheer class)
Lampard (sheer sheer class)
Downing (sorry Joe Cole but Downings on fire)
Owen (the best when at his best)
Crouch (the suprisingly skillfull front foil)

I have a good feeling about this one.





however please be gentle with me after we fuck it up against T & T and Paraguay

On the sheet, this a nightmare line up for any other team. Must see how they get together. Don't undervalue Paraguay, southamericans play always with blood in the eyes.
Did England made a friendly against Belarus yesterday?

Lost 2 -1 with Belarus down to 10 for last 15 minutes.

I dont really care about results of friendlies - its the real games that count.

Good points - Owen, Cole, Campbell had good fitness run outs. Lennon and Downing did well as did Crouch. Young Walcott got a run out too!

Bad point was our 3rd keeper ripping his groin and will miss the World Cup. Hence why I suggested earlier we go with two keepers and include an extra attacker to soften the gamble on Rooney!
