Re: Sports: Soccer

Thanks WDGrant. As you can probably tell, I don't follow them all that closely any more---I mainly get caught up on the latest when I chat to my step-dad on the phone. Back in the late 80s and first half of the 90s I was pretty keen though and went to a lot of the home games. They had some great players and sides in that era.

In more recent news, after half an hour it's Villa 1, Manchester United 0. Given that we have a famously bad record against United I'm not confident it'll last, but I'm going to go offline now so that I don't suffer the inevitable last minute United goal.

Re: Sports: Soccer

League Cup Final today in England. Manchester United vs. Aston Villa. I'll be following the action here, jealous of my step-dad and brother-in-law who are at Wembley cheering the Villa.

COME ON YOU LIONS!

Re: Sports: Soccer

I don't really know enough about baseball to make a comparison, but for the last 20-odd years United have been the team to beat.

And... 1-0 to Villa.

It's great! You get to hit the ball with a stick, other people have to chase it AND you can watch the other team try their luck for half the game. All that kicking just seems so French... Savate

Go Villa!

Not exactly. They have a good amount of money and they have a ton of good players, but they don't have the most. They are a well run team; their manager Sir Alex Ferguson may retire as the all time greatest manager in Europe. They are very popular around the world though, probably second only to Real Madrid. Man. U has had more recent success than Real though.

I respect them, but root against them as I am a Chelsea fan.

Re: Sports: Soccer

OK, five years on, Villa in another cup final. The FA Cup this time (a bigger deal than the League Cup) against Arsenal. Arsenal are the favourites by some distance (mostly because they're a whole lot better at playing football than we are) but there's always a chance.

After being first choice for the last few seasons, Guzan seems to have fallen out of favour with our new manager and will likely be on the bench.
