      The Redskins have opened their 2019 season with two losses. Both against Divisional foes. Now they get to close out Week 3 at home on Monday Night against the visiting 1-1 Chicago Bears. The Bears don't have much of an offense but seem to have what may be an elite defense.
       
      On the flip side, the Redskins have a developing passing attack and a disastrous defense. The Redskins haven't had a Defense this vanilla since Mike Nolan received his ice cream. Oh, and the Redskins already have more guys on IR then any other team this season. 
       
      Will the Redskins finally put one in the win column? 
       
      As usual, poll closes at kickoff. Go vote!

LONG way to go yet. City will need more than one to win this.

Hail.

I think Alex Ferguson could have headed that ball away. However, yeah its gonna be long game. We've only had two games this year where we didn't score a goal. All I know is Utd better make sure the next goal is theirs or the lights may go out on their season.

*waits for Alex to make some changes.....Still waiting*

Changes in personnel and some urgency on the park. City are coasting through this.

Hail.

*Edit* And that's what I hate about Mancini. Italian mentality. FAR too early to start sitting and inviting Utd back into this.

I can't believe how easy that was for City. No urgency, no quality, no nothing from Utd.

Not to rub it in Richmond, but if City now see this through this is the biggest single Premiership collapse for me that rivals anything Newcastle did. Honestly had Utd as champions back in February. A few weeks back when City lost at Arsenal and it was 7 points I officially called it. Still can't believe that's looking so wrong now.

Hail.

Man Utd shouldn't have even gotten on the bus to the stadium if that's the way they wanted to play. Champs don't screw the pooch like this. They didn't deserve anything. If they had a gotten a draw they would have basically stolen the game.

Americans distraught over ESPN airing soccer

Worst part about soccer on espn. Can't understand a damn word the announcers are saying lol
No, ESPN it's soccer not football. Football is played by men. #stupideuropeans
What is this country coming to... I'm watching soccer on ESPN and a 100% Spanish AT&T commercial comes on. Don't you know we speak American!
Look at @espn acting like it likes Soccer. You would think that Tebow was playing for Manchester United.

The notion of Americans being frustrated because they can't watch footbawl analysis shows in the off-season is hilarious.

Just ignorant trash. Makes me sick.

BTW, well done on clinching third and taking something out of this season. (Can't see you not picking up at least one win from the final two so I'll congratulate you now.).

Get outta here with that. You proclaimed Utd champs weeks ago, and look what happened. :D

Despite angry Americans taking to twitter and complaining about their inability to watch the 100th rerun of Sportscenter or another offseason episode of NFL Live, ESPN's coverage of the Manchester Derby garnered record ratings.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505245_162-57425934/champs-semis-manchester-derby-get-big-us-ratings/

Manchester City's 1-0 win over Manchester United on Monday drew 1,033,000 viewers on ESPN, the largest U.S. audience for a Premier League match on cable. The previous high was 610,000 for Arsenal's win over Chelsea on ESPN2 on Dec. 27, 2010.

....a Monday afternoon soccer match gets over 1 million viewers.

Lotta people are going to have to get used to it, because that is a HUGE number.

I often trash ESPN and their lack of journalistic integrity, but props to ESPN for their EPL coverage. Ian Darke is basically one of the best reasons to watch ESPN.

More EPL for ESPN is a good thing.

What? And interrupt coverage of World's Fattest Man, or whatever else would be running on a weekday afternoon?

Good luck man. GO DCU!

Another noteworthy game tonight takes place in the North West of England when Bolton play 'Spurs. Noteworthy as Bolton's Fabrice Muamba will be making his first public appearance at the game since the 23 year old collapsed on the pitch and his heart stopped beating for 78 minutes 6 weeks ago in the game in north London between the same two sides.

Remarkable recovery to see him now in a great feel good story.

Hail.

I want to start seeing more of Borussia Dortmund. I saw them once against Arsenal and they looked good. Fast/fit/skillful counterattacking football, er, soccer.

yeah, they're insane! Plus they don't have that evil empire vibe. One of their stars, Götze, lives at home with his parents.

I don't think Gotze will be at Dortmund or his parents house for long...

(yes, I know they have won the league two years in a row)

I think he just re-signed, two ways to look at that he re-signed as a favor to BD so they could get a bigger transfer fee OR that he actually plans on staying. Could be a little of both. I THINK Kagawa is the one that wants out.

plus, it helps with his wages. He will get (more) interest from the superclubs and the transfer fees and wages will be too much to pass up

'We're on the march with Kenny's army ..... '

Cup Final day.

Another trip to Anfield South to see the redmen send the rent boys packing and complete another double.

Not to sound arrogant, but not concerned about Chelski in the slightest. As poor as we've been, Liverpool don't do losing finals 9 times out of 10. Time to show the plastic flag waving, National Front supporting, small club with Russian money ****ney no-marks once again just what a proper football club with proper support look's and sounds like.

' **** off Chelsea FC,

Yuse 'aint got no his-to-ry;

5 European Cups, and 18 Leagues,

That's what we call his-to-ry ..... '

YNWA. Hail.
