Holy crap, that MLSTalk post made my brain bleed...

wasn't worth the link, umlaut, even if the actual intelligence was in the comments...

Just making sure you all appreciate the good stuff you get on here.

Don't worry, umlaut, you guys have been laying golden eggs the last few days (pissing excellence and intensity, perhaps, instead?).

I'll second whichever commenter(s) it was(were) who noted that you've done more on the recent Madrid deals than the "big" blogs/sites.

All of us here are smartasses to some degree or another, but what you guys do is much appreciated. Especially on a workday when I don't feel comfortable posting a response...

MLS teams would be competitive with all of the bottom 15 teams of EPL.

That word. I do not think it means, what you think it means.

I KNEW I'd heard of that Jones guy before! He's the homophobic guy who said he hoped there weren't any gay players in the Bundesliga.

Welcome to America, where everyone will call you a fag for liking soccer, you made a wise choice!

He'll only be in America for training and home matches. Beyond that, I don't see much of Jones in the States.
