    Re: Soccer game at the bank yesterday

    Id beg to differ. The 38 game premiership season came down to the last few seconds and final kick of the game. Most exciting season in my lifetime. Couldn't have written that ending, this season. It was unbelievable and I support the team on the losing side

    The finish this year was crazy! I am a big Chelsea fan, but also love QPR. Watching that match with so much on the line was amazing, the best end of season finish ever!

    I thought it was a dreadful performance by both teams, but mainly Tottenham. They must have set a record for passes between the backline and goalie. LFC was slightly better. Frankly, it was worse than a bad MLS game.

    That game probably killed interest in soccer for most first time attendees.

    I agree, it wasn't pretty at all. I really think the turf and the heat were a factor. Funny about the pass backs, I actually said that to one of the guys I was with, never seen that happen so frequently in an EPL match. Many of the middies, and a few of the backs looked hesitant to turn upfield and take people on.

    My soccer team is Barcelona. What a year Messi had, 91 goals. The greatest player and the greatest team to ever play the game.

    I would say that the players could not adjust themselves according to the heat over there. The turf was also a bit long and slow which played its part in changing the game a bit.
