Eric-Lichaj-col-getty

Welcome to today’s  Commentary Thread, following all matches around the world that involve US players. This weekend begins the 2 weeks of madness in the UK. Many UK teams, across all leagues, will play 3 or even 4 games in quick succession, and their hopes will rise and fall following the holiday schedules. All this while most of the other European Leagues take a break. Expect action over the next few weeks from Italy, Belgium and Holland (Bradley,Kljestan and Altidore) as they plough (literally) through their schedules.

This weekend we have a number of promising games to watch, Tottenham(Clint Dempsey) currently in 4th in the EPL will have a hard game as they host Stoke City(Geoff Cameron) and West Ham(Sebastion Lletget) will welcome Tim Howard and Everton on Saturday, also Saturday Roma (Michael Bradley) takes on AC Milan in Italy while Malaga and Oguchi Onyewu will welcome Real Madrid into their house. On Sunday , Aston Villa (Brad Guzan & Eric Lichaj – above) will go to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the EPL,  and Sasha Kljestan and 1st place Anderlecht will battle 6th place Genk, in an effort to keep their win streak alive. So join with us as we follow these games, chat give opinions and generally have fun through the weekend games.

    Villa’s Weimann hits the woodwork, ball flicks off Cech, off the bar and over

  2. David says:

    25th Minute:

    Genk 0 – 0 Anderlecht

  3. David says:

    by the scoreline you would not think that Guzan is doing well today, but it could easily be 6 or more, if not for Brad.

  4. David says:

    Frank Lampard’s goal was his first in the Premier League from outside the penalty area since April 2011, 603 days ago. Wow surprised!!

  5. David says:

    Just to update:

    Chelsea 4 – 0 Aston Villa (72)

    Genk 0 – 0 Anderlecht (29)

  6. David says:

    Oh Dear, Chelsea score again this time Ramires (76)

    Chelsea 5 – 0 Aston Villa (78)

  7. David says:

    Official Rout!!!

    Oscar scores from the spot (78)after PK giveaway by Herd

    Chelsea 6 – 0 Aston Villa (81)

    Still time for more ? :(

  8. David says:

    Yeah! we have a goal in Belgium (35)

    Genk 0 – 1 Anderlecht (38)

  9. David says:

    And just can’t get any worse for Villa – or can it? (82)

    Hazard slams an absolute screamer into the top corner – another great finish and it’s SEVEN for Chelsea. A nightmare for Villa.

    no longer a rout – now annihilation

  10. David says:

    Anderlecht expand their lead (44)

    Genk 0 – 2 Anderlecht (45+1)

  11. David says:

    Oh My now its 8 (90)

    Ramires again

    Chelsea 8 – 0 Aston Villa (90+3)

    Oh let it end – blow the Freaking whistle ref!!!

  12. David says:

    That’s it from Stamford Bridge

    Aston Villa totally humiliated

    Chelsea 8 – 0 Aston Villa

  13. David says:

    Half Time in Belgium where Sasha and Anderlecht leads Genk by 2 goals to zero

  14. David says:

    I feel really bad for Brad Guzan, He had a really strong game (I know that sounds weird under the circumstance)but believe it or not this game could easily had more goals but for Brad.

    Eric Lichaj was OK, before he was subbed out (55) in a tactical move by Paul Lambert, on a day like today, its unlikely that anyone will be heralded or punished, its just an anomaly. Not much time for Villa to regroup and move on. Next up, Wednesday Home to Tottenham, while Chelsea will travel to Norwich

  15. David says:

    2nd half underway in Belgium

    Genk 0 – 2 Anderlecht (49)

  16. David says:

    In Belgium

    Genk have got one back (61)

    Genk 1 – 2 Anderlecht (63)

  17. David says:

    15 minutes to go in Belgium, Anderlecht are holding on to their 2 – 1 lead..come on Sasha!!

  18. David says:

    All tied up in Belgium

    Genk score (76)

    Genk 2 – 2 Anderlecht (78)

  19. David says:

    Score!!!! Anderlecht (86)

    Genk 2 – 3 Anderlecht (86)

  20. David says:

    Goal ! Anderlecht (90)

    Genk 2 – 4 Anderlecht (90+4)

  21. David says:

    Full Time in Belgium Pro League

    Genk 2 – 4 Anderlecht

    Genk came back from a 2 goal, half time deficit to tie things up with 15 minutes on the clock, but Anderlecht score 2 unanswered goals to finish of the year with a solid win, 3 points and a win streak at 10.

  22. David says:

    so that’s it for this weekend….we ended with 2 games that provided 14 goals.

    I would like to thank everyone for joining in with chat and comments…..see you later this week.

    To everyone out there – my personal wish – for a happy and safe holiday

    cheers
