Huge victory! I was thinking that it would take five points, I was counting on a draw at Anderlecht, and a win at Paradise, and a draw with Bayern.  Now that draw is not really necessary.  The Bhoys are two and out in the Champions League, but can win a few games in the Europa League, depending on the draw.  

strongbhoy:
Caught them at the right time. Jozo and Lustig are out for Bayern, could be a cricket score.

MNUFC +260, FCD even, draw +250, o/u 2.5

DVR'd, too, watched Notre Dame play.  Hotel has DVR  on request. Infrared sauna because we have no way to vent the steam.

I am wondering if FIFA believes the Gold Cup is played for once to many times.  Euro and American Cup are just once every four years.  I believe the US should always play in the American Cup, since those are teams we need to beat.

No excuse for the calls.  The ref was a Hun.

You will not have matched Dallas until you 8-1 at home in the rain.

and 2 US open Cups, a Supporters Shield etc. It's not all bad.

One Cup down, two to go.  I really want the Bhoys to do the triple this year.

strongbhoy:
Would be amazing for a treble, usually the League Cup is the one they fuck up, so we will see. I was worried, but at least it would have been Aberdeen and not Newco that would have won it, had they not scored some fucking peaches that sealed that draw.
strongbhoy:
Rumor is now Dembele to Liverpool for 20m, not sure if he'd go, they have too many offensive options, and the club could maybe get more for him, if he stays till at least the summer that would be huge.

How did the Iron Range vote?  You told me that the MUFC stadium would be "glorious."  After looking at the stadium plans, I think that is an understatement.

This isn't your father's democrat or republican party, and it sure as fuck isn't your Grandfather's. I think so many are just I have voted this way for ___ years so I will continue to do so. That said, the fact the state ALMOST flipped is insane. Couldn't believe we were actually in play for an election.

Oh bro, I'm going on a trip east today, but if you want some MNU stuff let me know and I can send some out. I have a bunch of random scarves all over that I give to friends or use for traders.

Nice win away to 'Gers.  The fucking bastard 'Gers keeper played the game of his life.  As UEFA kowtows to Italy, England, Spain, and Germany (maybe Turkey, as well), I think the North Europe League gets closer.  Even though the logistics could be a nightmare.  UEFA, even hamstrung by the big leagues, could solve this in an instant.

UEFA could avoid all this by front loading most of the money.  Most of the money would go to teams that have to play in.  The teams that make it through the group stages do not so much money.  They will still chase cups even if they do not earn so much.

or actual champions....

That SSS in St, Paul looks great.  I fear the Bhoys let a great opportunity slip by on Wednesday.

Yep, and Yep. No fitba after Christmas IMO.

Yes, pretty much.  Though they all had various shades of red, nothing exotic.  Aisha wanted to humiliate me by sending to the store with lipstick kisses all over my face.

It is a curse of being born to late.  I read that Minnesota United will play on grass.  Atlanta will play on radioactive plastic.   I lost a lot of respect for Arthur Blank when I read that.

Atlanta can suck my balls with their "name". Hope they tank. Also, we have an SSS...it will be grand.

Huns.  Still fun to watch them leave Paradise early.  I really like the Fucking Bastard Huns new Nordic defender.  He will lose a lot of games.  To Hell with the satanic 'Gers.  Bless the Pope!

It is going to be tough for them to overturn a 5-1 record win. History books will always have their Scottish top flight debut against Celtic as that. hahaha

Group stage.  At least they made it, even if it did look they were taking the day off.  HOOPS!

Well, that sounds just like a chili dog, with some real chili.  But sweet chili as pasta sauce?  No wonder Johnny Football went insane.  I just hope Kolo has something left.  I suppose the Gaffa would know better than most.

Emphatic end to the SPL.  Tempting to think that Aitichison is the answer to our prayers, but he is so very young.  Many players get to 18, and never get any better.  Or he is the second coming of Larsson.  Now that the flag bearer of Financial Fair Play is out, I wonder if the Bhoys will buy some players in the summer window.

strongbhoy:
@pascipio Ajer is coming in. He's one of the biggest wonderkids in Europe...literally too. Dude is 18 and is 6'5/6'6, top class. This team won't spend, I expect them to do nothing, and they need to get rid of 10 players on the books at least. Delia took the fall for Lawell and the board.

That episode of Bullshit is why I committed to use can as much as possible, Mate.  But I still throw class and plastic into the bin as well.

That would not work.  Aisha is too calculating, even when furious.  She would punch me in the face until I would put her down.  Then she would continue.  When she is a good mood, she does like me carrying her around some times.

The Vikings used sophisticated Apple technology to figure out how to get from Scandinavia to Minnesota.  If all they had were PCs, they never would have found England.  They would not have built Dublin.  And then where we be?

Apple technology refuses to work for me. There are three types of people. "Apple people" for whom Apple is lord and savior. "People who occasionally use Apple products" and the last category where I stand "people who Apple products refuse to work for or they fuck up constantly".

The new Corvette is a bit uninspired for such an icon, and does share some body similarities with the Camero.  More importantly, you are getting a soccer team.

The new Corvette is a little uninspiring for such an icon, and it does have some of the features of the Camero.  You have an MLS team!
