    Dang, you are leaving the house without your mobile phone ? Can it be true ? :eek: :rolleyes: :D
    Dont expect these youngsters to know what they are wearing.
    US streetwear is very popular among young people but they barely know anything about the logos on their hats or
    jackets ;)

    Same here.
    Internet, email and music player are more important to me but I never ever leave the house without my
    Mobile. ;)
    I feel naked without it :rolleyes::D

    Edit: On my way to the office I read this interesting article. Thought I'd share this with you:

    New York Times?! wow a decent writer there quite surprized at that. Funtional thats a good description of Bale, quick on his feet but will collapse to the deck in a millisecond if a Defender so much as looks at him. That will only get you so far in the better leagues, yes Spain, Germany, Italy ,etc are better at least in the standard of defending. So for him this could be somewhat of a problem.

    Apparently blonde half Swedish from Edinburgh.
    Amy Macdonald or Julie Fowlis would have been better.

    Ah no :mad:
    Germany only with a 1-0 lead against Austria so far, I hope for at least two more goals against the "Ösis"... :rolleyes::cool:

    Edit: 2-0, nice goal by Toni Kroos

    Belgium has a very decent team and players like Lukaku and Dembele are only sitting on the bench ! :eek:;)
    Perhaps their best team since 1980....

    Edit: Btw- Estonia leads 2-1 against Netherlands :laugh:

    You got your wish Nessie. That was a very nice display of teamwork, passing and footwork. But of course Germany can thank FC Bayern for that win. :sneaky:

    So if Liverpool is in first place in the Premiere League without Suarez playing, what does that mean?

    Yepp, could have been a 5 or 6-0 as well. ;)
    Did you notice that the 35 yo Klose equaled the all time goal record for the German National team ? But Gerd Mueller only had 68 appearances, his goals per game ratio will be unreachable for years to come. :tup:

    They don't need Vampires to win the first few easy games?

    ''You dont need Mr Sheen Moisey, you dont win anything'' :D

    BTW watched the Belgium game highlights we missed a couple of great chances, could easily have been 2-2

    Aaah, thats how Moisey has to be written correctly ! ;)
    I've heard it several times now - still funny, "I am the champion my friend"...and his accent......:D

    Found a video and watched the game highlights too, indeed bad luck but to be honest I think in the end Belgium was the well deserved winner.
    I expect Scotland to have a better chance to win against Macedonia, I cross my fingers for Scotland :tup:

    Ahh hang on i think Moyesy is the right way, ;) they got the accents really bang on. :D

    Absolutely Belgium are by far the better team, could have been a different score though had we been as clinical as them in finishing. I blame Levein for our position, Strachan is only trying to pick up the pieces of the mess he left behind. :rolleyes:

    There is one more year left until it counts and the Euro 2016 qualification starts. And as said before - this could be the best chance for Scotland to qualify since many years because of the additional starting places with 8 more teams.
    And hopefully a year helps them to improve and bring in young and better players and establish modern tactics. :tup:

    The US Men's Team is in card trouble already in World Cup qualifying. It looks like they'll be without several key starters due to multiple yellow cards. Klinsman's system is starting to turn them around, but they still haven't figured out the difference between World Football and the NFL. This happens almost every world cup. The US team shows some promise then cards out.

    Missing players because of stupid yellow cards is annoying. Who will be qualified for the world cup ? Only the winner of the group or even two teams ? Mexico looks surprisingly weak so far and the US shouldnt put their chances in jeopardy by losing against them.
    Maybe I can watch them play after arriving in PHL on Tuesday. Will they air the game on TV ?
