Which is why I hope they choke on all of the money they've spent, like the Mets of MLB.

Now, I liked having Lescott at Everton, but GBP 24 million for the lad? Get serious.

Yeah, 2 loses already in only 3 played. Not ready to cash in the rest of the season just yet, but they need to get it going in a hurry. I suspect they will. I think they miss Alonso a bit more then they thought they would. Controlling central mid-fielders are worth their weight in gold.

A fight broke out at the West Ham/Millwall game. Who woulda thought?

Guess someone got stabbed during the melee.

I can't understand for the life of me why some Americans find soccer boring.
I've watched live NFL & Baseball, soccer has far more excitement & action.

That's an English perspective. You grew up with the game. Most Americans didn't.

I find it strange that many English call baseball boring, yet they watch cricket and/or Formula One racing.

Ultimately, though, I think it's silly the way people on both sides of the pond feel the need to constantly argue over which sports are superior. It's individual tastes and exposure. Plus, there's no reason you can't like both (soccer and American football) for different reasons.
