Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary

With Juventus and Napoli continuing their strong starts to the Serie A season, plenty of teams are hoping just to keep up with the pair. Several of those teams are in play on Sunday, as Inter Milan, Catania, and Roma will all be in action, with Juventus now three points ahead Napoli after posting a 2-0 victory on Saturday in a battle of the top two teams in Italy.

Inter can pull to within a point of Napoli with a victory against Catania, while Michael Bradley and Roma pay a visit to Genoa.

In England, the Toffees of Everton will look to continue their impressive start to the Premier League season, while Queens Park Rangers will look to right their dismal start. After seven matches, QPR is already twenty points behind first-place Chelsea, holding down last place with just two points.

    Joe Gyau entering St. Pauli game against Paderborn right now in the 75th minute under the new FCSP coach. Good sign. Score is 1-1.

  2. Mig says:

    OptaJoe just tweeted that the red card for Tiote was his first in 54 appearances but he has 27 yellows. Twenty-seven in fifty-four. 27/54. 50%! Holy crap, Jermaine Jones who?

    • dikranovich says:

      lots of yellows, but no reds sounds like the sign of a good, tough, smart defender.

      • Mig says:

        Well, maybe. But that many yellows means he sat out several games due to yellow accumulation. That ain’t helping the team.

        • dikranovich says:

          tiote has helped fc twente win the dutch league and now he is key for a resurgent newcastle. strong player, and a smart player. my guess is the red will be rescinded before all is said and done.

      • GW says:

        That hard to say since, as far as I know, they don’t tell you reason for the card.

        In other words, there are stupid yellows (dissent, ticky tack fouls, etc.) and there are smart strategic yellows.

  3. ManicMessiah says:

    I can’t pretend to be anything but biased, but that Tiote tackle was not a red. Typical Atkinson.

    • Mig says:

      Didn’t see it but I’ll grant you Atkinson is quick on the trigger. And you? Biased? Nahhh. ;) That’s like saying I’m not perfectly objective when assessing a Chelsea game.

  4. Mig says:

    “Awaiting moderation”? Interesting. Kind of takes away from the flow of conversation.

    • Ives Galarcep says:

      Moderation only applies to first time commenters. Not ALL comments are moderated. Not sure why it pegged you as never having commented before. Perhaps you use a variety of IP addresses.

      • Mig says:

        yeah, Ives. I’m traveling so I have a different IP address this month. Thanks for the info.

      • Michael Stypulkoski says:

        It got me too, Ives, and I’ve been here since 2009. Yesterday, in the “Saturday running commentary” thread, in a reply to biff. And I had already commented on that thread earlier in the day, from the same computer. No biggie, just fyi.

        • Ives Galarcep says:

          I might just turn moderation off, but wanted to keep track of things in the early going of the re-design.

        • biff says:

          Hey, Michael Stypulkoski, just to let you know that earlier today I did respond to your comments on the Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary thread. In short form, in case you did not revisit that thread today, I will say that in no way was I attacking you or calling you a troll, but only those people who post with a new name for only one thread and then never use the name again. And there were several of those sorts of posts yesterday with negative comments under names used just one time. I have no problem with people who post under their normal names, no matter what they say. And the other point I made was when you said low down on the thread that you had not actually watched the first half of the Tottenham-Chelsea game. That surprised me after your comments earlier about Dempsey’s performance. Anyway, cheers.

  5. JPD says:

    Other than some poor aerial play, QPR look much better than their table standing.

  6. Eric says:

    Softtttttt second yellow for Pienaar. Everton down to 10.

  7. jones says:

    Bradley on the bench today

  8. yikes says:

    Bradley played 180mins less than 9days ago. of course he wouldnt start.
