Soccer News & Notes: 2/6/2007
Sorry, but being the only IT guy at the office this week doesn’t lend too much free time for blogging.
Manchester United still 6 points up.
After two straight matches in which United scored four goals and kept two clean sheets, the EPL lead is still six points. Manchester United dropped Watford last Wednesday 4-0 only to follow it up with another 4-0 victory over Tottenham in London. Ronaldo, Scholes, Vidic and Giggs all scored for United. Edwin Van Der Sar left the match late in the second half with a broken nose, thanks to Robbie Keane. Van Der Sar is not playing this week for Holland, and it is unclear when he will return for United.
Manchester United host Charlton this Saturday in EPL action, then follow it up with a weekend home match against Reading in the FA Cup.
DC United schedule online.
DC United have posted their schedule for 2007 on their website. I find it odd that we only play the Red Bulls 3 times, and only once in New Jersey.
Only two more weeks until the first leg of the CCC and three weeks until the home game. I really can’t wait for this to kick off!
USA getting ready for Mexico.
The USMNT face Mexico tomorrow in Phoenix, Arizona. Mexico called in what can only be termed as their main squad for this match. Bob Bradley has called in something else. I will be watching from home, as work commitments ruled out a chance to fly out for this one. I hate it when works gets in the way of life.
