Thank you for listening in last night to Soccer Matters brought to you by Ironman on Sports Talk 790. Here are a few things on my soccer mind so feel free to leave opinion:
1.) Bar Munich- Well how appropriate that tonight Geoff Cameron is doing a celebrity pour at this establishment based on Bayern Munich’s 2-1 win over Real Madrid. Dynamo players and girls will be in attendance as Geoff works towards raising funds and awareness for the fight against cancer. Hate that disease! Support it!
2.) Chelsea v. Barcelona – can’t miss tv today at 1:30 on FX. I couldn’t find it live and panicked and tweeted out advice where to find it. Incredible response told me FX!
Thank you twitter world!!!
Chelsea is on a high and will defend deep for extended periods and look to catch Barcelona over-committed via the counter attack.
How can you not respect Barcelona and their will to attack in every game! Thing of beauty!
3.) Dynamo thoughts- next up for the Orange is an injury decimated Crew in Columbus.
Talked to Brad Davis yesterday who spent the training session on a
stationary bike. I get the feeling he will not play on the weekend but
if he trains on Thursday will likely tell the story.
4.) Channel 2 KPRC- Join us for the broadcast from Columbus, Ohio. Recognizable sports anchor Randy McIlvoy will handle the pre and post game shows starting at 6p cst.
Eddie Robinson and I , provided he doesn’t head butt me will handle the game call.
In fact Eddie and I are going into a training session tomorrow so we can be up for the moment for you the fan!!! Don’t miss this ground breaking game on Channel 2.
5.) 4-3-3 I get that this is the fashionable set-up but as much as one desires to use this it takes special players to play this way. The Colorado Rapids are trying to figure it out in MLS.
Not to mention one U.S. under 23 team. More on this in the future.
6.) The Goal- When Mario Gomez scored in the 89th minute all the talk was focused on the horrific decision by Fabio Coentrao to over-commit in the challenge out wide. Despite this, Iker Casillas had the opportunity to cut the cross off before it got to Super Mario. Check the tape!!
7.) Support those who get the game on the radio- without them we are no where.
Ironman Sports Medicine, Danish Inspirations Contemporary Furniture, Snapple, Houston Toros Futsal, TexasDutchLionsFC, Fiesta……this goes for Dynamo sponsors also like Greenstar, BBVA!!!
8.) Get those tickets- Game one may be sold out at BBVA Compass but the Portland game is not and the Dynamo have some great ticket specials for that game. Go get em at houstondynamo.com
Another chance today to watch the “glory game”, it doesn’t get any better!!!
