Your “Wait, there’s no football today?” Saturday Morning Soccer Open Thread

As sad as it may seem,  there is only one game left in the NFL season and it is not today.  It’s time to get used to life without the NFL.

All is good, of course, because we not only have AFLW and AFL to look forward to but we still have good ole regular fútbol.  The original and still the worldwide champ.  This summer we also have the World Cup to look forward to as well as the associated various cups involved.

While summer arrives, we still have league fútbol to enjoy and Oh Kids has it been enjoyable to watch! I have to say that watching the collapse of Real Madrid this year has been a joy. True, they won the World Club Cup in the winter, but they only had to beat Gremio and a squad of journalists, so it wasn’t that hard.

Their stated goal is now to stay in the Champions League places in La Liga while concentrating on the Copa Del Rey and

Leganés eliminate Real at the Bernabeu

the Champions League. Sounds almost Arsenalesque.

Man City continues setting the pace in West Hollywood and the EPL. Meanwhile,  in Germany, the Bundesliga is essentially a season-long preparation for Russia with the dudes in Munich controlling everything. Please fill in your favorite WW2 simile.

I’m telling you, if I was a Mexican scout,  I’d be watching that league in preparing for the group stage. As Litre told you last week,  the teams under Bayern are fighting fiercely for the Champions League spots.

The Mexican league is in full swing and the action is muy muy caliente.  The fans too.

Future ex Mrs. Balls

Here are the game schedules with the US first and then Canada.

I have to say thank you to my Canadian friends for being such a kickass country and wonderful people.  A special lady friend of mine recently came back from your beautiful country and she returned raving about your friendly warm people and your beautiful snowy country.

Now,  if only that global warming would kick into high gear…

Ok,  that’s all for me.  Have at it!

Okay. Thanks to everyone for joining the Lady Footy group. My only claim to fame for this group is meeting BeerGuyRob at his place of work on a work trip to Vancouver. Watching the GWS game on my big TV. No spoilers.

I did not join, but only because I can’t be trusted to get my tips in on time.
Looking forward to it tho.

If the spread is only 4.5 tomorrow, would Philly have been the favorite with a healthy Wentz?

No. But probably in the ballpark of pick ’em to +1.

OK, fuck you Oregon.

$100 on Auburn ATS -11
$100 on Oklahoma ML +135

Worst case, I’ll still have $500 in acct tomorrow to screw around with. As much as $1,100 if Oregon pulls dey heads out dey asses in the next 16 minutes.

I suspect I’ll have $600 tho (sorry $700…my mathing was off and I’m not even drunk yet). The Okie bet is stupid considering mine and Hippo’s betting history with the state of Oklahoma lately.

He was a very good linebacker; can’t judge a career on a two yard gain.

Goddammit Oregon.

Also I’m passing on the G’Town/Xavier match.
But Auburn -11 at home vs Vandy looks good.

G’Town moneyline is at +800.
Holy shit that’s tempting even though I don’t think they’ll win.
But I do think they’ll cover the +14.

Does it play up that he deliberately cause a famine in India? Prolly not.

Oldman is a great fucking actor (not in the porn sense).

They’re not even the worst team in the Big East all things considered.

“I know Sam’s done a lot of work with the back four since he’s got [to Everton]” is maybe something I’d skip saying as an announcer if Everton were down 5-1 with six minutes to go, against a team that just lost convincingly to fucking Swansea.
