Well, crap. Dortmund loses to Bayern 1-0 in evenly matched game. Only goal scored late in the first half.

Re: German Soccer to Return

Dortmund gets 2-0 win over Wolfsburg to maintain its hold on second place in the standings. :thumb: Make or break game v. Bayern on Tuesday, 5/26 (12:30 p.m., FS1). A win draws the Yellow and Black to within a point of Bayern. A defeat will drop them to seven back, and will likely cause a slip from...

Re: German Soccer to Return

There must not have been steroids in the Yankees clubhouse, because Strawberry said he have used them if he was offered them. Yes. There's an interesting story to why steroids never took a foothold in the Yankee clubhouse of that era. I've heard this from media figures who cover the Yankees that I ...

Re: German Soccer to Return

Joe isn't be completely forthright. He first asked Ganny to name any member of the 1998 Yankees that used PEDs, he added the "during that season or before" later. I believe there were at least three members of that team who were linked to PEDs later. We don't really know if they were using them in ...

Re: German Soccer to Return

Is there a reason you make the distinction "during or before" instead of after? :coffee: Because TWO (just two) members of that team were later named in The Mitchell Report as having used PEDs. However, in both cases, the Mitchell Report stated that they had first used PEDs at a period of time foll...

Re: German Soccer to Return

So far this match is a pale substitute for the JJ vs. D1B matches of yesteryear. Too much logic and words from a thesaurus and not enough zingers. JJ still has some spunk but Ganny just isn't a trash talker. Let's hope the next round is better. :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn: I'm too nice to truly tr...

Re: German Soccer to Return

And you -- claiming to be so learned. You'd have poor old Ivy tuning in to watch a 17-year kid who rarely plays with the First Division club. I didn't pooh-pooh the kid. I just said you would not see him play against Schalke. And that was correct. Reyna logged zero minutes. He wasn't even on the ro...

If you can get me some beer from the local brewery and a date with the salesgirl, you can have my support.

How did you wind up rooting for a second division club in Germany? Is you family from the area?

Re: German Soccer to Return

I thought Green was on loan rehabbing at the Second Division. But it seems he was loaned and then transferred. I didn't realize that. He's still the most accomplished American playing in Germany. McKennie has more caps and goals internationally than Green and he's 3 years younger. John Brooks still...

Re: German Soccer to Return

Reyna is 17 years old. He's made a handful of first club appearances, played limited minutes, and has never started a match. He's got amazing potential, but it you're tuning in right now to see Reyna, you will be sorely disappointed. No doubt, but that's still more enticing than a Julian Green who,...

Re: German Soccer to Return

I had a very good client based in Dortmund. That’s my basis to root for that side. The best soccer coach my son ever had got a deal with Dusseldorf, and is currently on its third roster. Broke my heart when he signed. My kid never played better than when he was playing for him. I keep telling him, ...

[ Here's a list of Americans playing in the Bundesliga. Probably the best of the group is Julian Green, but he's been hurt. Faabian Johnson is an established vet. I started pulling for Dortmund when Christian Pulisic was playing for them, and have remained loyal even after Pulisic was transferred t...

Re: How Great Was Tony Gwynn

I don't know who you're debating. If your point is that Gwynn had a better career, I'd agree with that. At peak value -- before Mattingly's back injury -- Mattingly was a superior player, however. In just six seasons, Mattingly accumulated enough "black ink" that he is still 90th all-time, measured...

Actual discussion at Topps, circa. January 1983. TOPPS GUY #1 -- "Hey, do we have a better picture of this Gwynn guy?" TOPPS GUY #2 -- "He's a rookie. That's all we've got." TOPPS GUY #1 -- "But I mean, this is of his ass. It's an awful picture." TOPPS GUYS #2 -- "Who's gonna care 40 years from now...
