OK, here's where I go on my Quixotic quest to predict when ManU finally give up a goal (it has to happen eventually, right? RIGHT???) So, between the originally scheduled game (I tracked down the guess), and the replay Saturday, I successfully went 0-2. I haven't found my guess for the original version of this game coming up, so here goes:

ManUre 2-1 Fulham (goal to Dempsey or Konchesky on a random 1-timer, but even their D can't keep 2 off the board at OT)

That last pic of Gazza's daughter is all kinds of awesome. Sad, but still awesome.

Doubt anyone is letting Robbie Williams invest more in port vale.

My buddies used to play with him at "LA Vale" - his club team here in Los Angeles - and he went mental and disbanded the team - not exactly the most stable character you want leading an investment team or leading a club to financial stability - though I heard he throws some sick ragers.

Man U 1 - Fulham 0 (J.S Park '58)

Those Villa shirts are awesome looking (except for the collar).

Fulham 3 - 1 United.

What? No dumber than my 5-2 US v. Mexico prediction.

2-1 Fulham. Dempsey, Murphy, Carrick.

The shirt archive is genius.

If anyone ever wondered what happened to Finkelstein following Ace Ventura, he/she went back in time to executive produce NASL games.

WANT those Villa shirts (except for the "modern" one.

Some of those girls at the tryouts don't really have the figures to be wearing those outfits. Just saying.

How come Sarah is the only one to comment on the bikini video? The rest of you are all gaga over some shirts. Have I misread all of the internet?

Yes, those old Villa shirts are very nice. I do also like the Norwich one with some trophy in the badge. That's high comedy there.
