Some of the players and teams have there own threads. I was trying to include players who might be off/under the radar.

I think they purosely left off Leeds on anything, I dont see any upside to that club after the debacle over the last few years.

Really?! Lewis - another American - is at Derby?! Oh man, this might be team number two for me behind Fulham (with Reading in 3rd). Speaking of, I think Fulham deserves their own thread here to track them trough the season. The class act that is McBride (who I praise to the high level right behind Cobi) is captaining the side and Dempsey is seeing more minutes (Boca looks shaky, so I am just going to avoid that right now). But really, let's show them boys some love!

They do: Team America thread.

McBride scored early in the first half today. Match is in the second half, with the score 1 nil.

Except he dislocated his knee four minutes later. He’s out two months minimum at this point, probably longer. FUCK.

Holy shit. His teammate dislocated his shoulder (Bouazza). Bad game for Fulham, but it means Dempsey will get a lot of time now...

Villa just bought Brad Friedel for about $4 mil. Dang, I liked cheering for Blackburn, but I guess it is pretty cool that he can call himself a "villain" now.

A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.
