A Bizarre Wednesday Evening Combination




It really is an unusual mixture of matches with both Gold Cup  matches and a U.S.L. match involving my local RGV Toros . There are two Gold Cup Quarterfinal matches . Costa Rica vs Panama looks set to head to extra time amidst a tedious 0-0 score line. The Toros vs Orange County F.C. kicks off at 8 P.M. on Watch ESPN. while the U.S. vs El Salvador kicks off at 9 P.M. on FS1. It's a surprisingly busy July evening.

They're off from H.E.B. Park

8:06 PM

R.G.V. is coming off a 4-0 loss to Swope Park and a 6-2 loss to the Sacramento Republic, which is managed by Rebecca Lowe's husband.

8:09 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I thought it was 0-0 in the quarterfinal, but the Ticos defeated Panama 1-0 thanks to a Godoy O.G. Sounds like exciting stuff.

8:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

R.G.V. has had about 90 % of the early possession without threatening the Orange County goal

8:13 PM

A very good summer evening. We just finished a delicious chicken skewers on the barbie using the doohickey that I posted on FB about earlier. Fabulous evening here in Fred Town. Hope you've had a good one too.

8:15 PM

Yes we have. I cooked two T bones in the frying pan. Sounds like you cooked a delicious meal. Hope you and Kate are having a great evening too.

R.G.V. had their first shot on goal straight at the keeper.

8:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sagal for the R.G.V was booked for holding back a player that was about to start an excellent break. Orange County take the free kick and it's headed well wide.

8:20 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Orange County win a corner after Kai Green was caught dwelling on the ball in his own box.

8:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Luna is down injured for R. G.V. and looks like he will need to be substituted only fifteen minutes into the match. Christian Lucetero replaces him.

8:22 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Orange County win another corner, but it's headed away

8:22 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We've got a baseball chat show on ESPN up here and a nonsense friendly between Roma and PSG on the Deuce. Reasonable warm-up fare for the big match.

8:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BUGGER!! ORANGE COUNTY TAKES THE LEAD OFF OF SOME PATHETIC PLAY FROM THE TOROS. THE TOROS KEEPER THREW THE BALL TO THE CENTRAL DEFENDER JUST OUTSIDE THE BOX AND HE LITERALLY PASSED IT TO FERNANADES THE ORANGE COUNTY STRIKER, WHO LAID IT OFF FOR STEFANOVIC , WHO HAD A WIDE OPEN GOAL AND BLASTED IT OFF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE BAR. HIS FIRST GOAL OF THE SEASON.

8:26 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You don't have the R.G. V. Toros vs Orange County F.C. ?

8:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That goal shows why the Toros have lost their last two matches by four goals and why Orange County is on a four match unbeaten run./

8:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You will need to go onto the ESPN site. The match is online.

WAY HAY !!! RGV HAVE A PENALTY AS CASNER WAS TRIPPED IN THE BOX. A LATE CHALLENGE!!!

YESSSSSSSSSSS!!! ERIC BYRD TIES IT UP FROM THE SPOT, SENDING THE KEEPER THE WRONG WAY.

8:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

There is a water break at the half hour mark due to the intense South Texas July heat.

8:38 PM

Blimey - it looks as if Chelsea have done the deal with Real Madrid to bring Morata for £58 million.

8:39 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Play resumed as I got a chance to feed Sparky dinner.

8:41 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW !!! I didn't think they would sign him. I think he's too lightweight for the Premier League and not worth that kind of money

8:42 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PHEW!!! Stefanovic was through on goal and nearly had a second as he shot just wide with just the keeper to beat

8:44 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's a lot of dosh - he'll likely be the replacement up front for Diego Costa.

8:44 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Marquinhos has just rattled one in for PSG on the Deuce.

8:45 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

As predicted Bruce Arena has brought the A team back for tonight's quarter final clash against the Salvadorans, including Bradley, Dempsey and Timmy Howard.

8:47 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A thirty pass move ends with a cross from Kai Green headed down and Casner has a shot clear the park.

8:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I know he made half a dozen changes to the squad by sending some makeweights home and replacing them with reinforcements.

8:49 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I was surprised that he sent Bedoya home, as he'd had a good tournament. Perhaps he's already made his place in the squad?

8:50 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

RUDDY NORAH! The announcer said that Sirius XM will air a USL match each week. That's surprising.

8:50 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Either that or he wants to scout another player. Gooner will be pleased that Guzan was sent packing

8:52 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Orange County win a corner as we enter three minutes of stoppage time due to the water break.

8:52 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The corner is headed out by Eric Bird off the other corner flag for another corner. The keeper does well to catch the next corner.

8:53 PM

Michael Bradley about to lead the players out in the tunnel.

9:05 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

El Presidente is giving Lexi some stick for predicting that the US will win by "multiple goals."

9:06 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I just heard that and rightly so. A lack of respect from Lexi. The U.S. will have to earn that win.

9:08 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

ES are no chumps - this could be a tight one.

9:10 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Anthems are over and it's showtime. I'm all a tingly.

9:13 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And we're underway from Philly. Come on, the Yanks!

9:15 PM

The U.S> vs El Salvador is underway

The link won't won't load for the other match , so all eyes will be on the match from Philly Cheesesteak.

9:16 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A bit thick of US Soccer to schedule this one on the East Coast. Probably a slightly larger ES crowd than US one.

9:16 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Paul Arriola wins an early corner now for the US.

9:17 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Rowe has a shot blocked for a U.S. corner.

9:17 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!!! A horrible back pass and Zelaya was off to the races, but Timmy rushed out to deny the El Salvador striker.

9:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed, but I would expect nothing better from U.S. Soccer.

9:20 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'm quite liking the looks of Kelyn Rowe from my beloved New England Revolution. Gooner is not keen, but I am.

9:21 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Zardes did well to get to the by-line but his cut back was deflected out for a corner.

9:21 PM

Zardes has pass deflected for a corner

9:21 PM

Oh - how did that not creep in!

9:22 PM

OH!!! a scramble in the El Sal box and several blocked shots lead to another corner.

9:22 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Meanwhile , the match loaded and Jorginho James, who gifted Orange County their goal, has a long range effort straight to Orange County keeper , Charlie Lyons.

9:23 PM

Zelaya is fouled just outside the U.S. box

9:24 PM

OH!!! Larin has a close range effort blocked as he received a pass off the free kick.

9:25 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - a close call for the US there. ES knocking on the door. Great crackling start to this one.

9:25 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not impressed by the U.S. early doors.

9:25 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

ay-yi-yi, the wifi over here at the Assisted Living is no bueno. I'll keep up as well as I can lads. Same old Salvador, quick, lively and not profitable as the moment. But someone in a hooped shirt needs to put his foot on the ball very flippin' soon.

9:26 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Having trouble with the link , but it was still 1-1 the last time there was action.

9:28 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Money is why the Salvador match is scheduled in a heavy Salvadoran population area.

9:28 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Evening, Gooner - good of you to join us under the circumstances. I agree - a bit shaky at the back for us.

9:28 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Who is Matt Hedges? Deer in the headlights stuff.

9:28 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good evening , Gooner. How have you been? Agreed. The U.S. needs to stamp their authority on the match

9:29 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's a no bueno for me. I'd schedule ES in Boise.

9:29 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Wayne wants to know why you boys are up late on a school night. Says hello too.

He plays more like Benson and Hedges. I'll hedge my bet on him.

Hello Mr. D. LOL!! School in July?

Lots of Salvadorans in Idaho because of agriculture. Think Maiine

9:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jozy receives a pass from Nagby and with his back to goal turns and shoots straight at the keeper.

9:31 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Decent chance their for Dozy. Didn't take it.

Zardes does slot one in - but it's flagged offside. The replay shows that Zardes was level. Poor show from the Trini linesman.

9:32 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Maine's lovely this time of year - why not?

9:32 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

BLOODY HELL! Zardes has a goal disallowed for offside. The replay shows he was on. We've been robbed.

9:33 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Romero picks up the first yellow card of the match for a niggly one on Dozy.

9:33 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The wrong player is booked for El Salvador as Arriola is the victim of a horrible challenge.

9:33 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Dempsey controlled a lovely ball in from Arriola. Turned and shot straight at the keeper.

9:33 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Clint shoots straight at Derby County Carillo.

9:34 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

This gringo ref is having a bit of a 'mare

9:35 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

VAR should not be required to determine who should be booked. Any pub level ref should get that right.

9:35 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Agabe gets a yellow for a soft one. Make up call perhaps.

9:36 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Carillo is one of the little people

Nagbe with a very doubtful yellow.

9:36 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Nagby booked for his first poor challenge while El Sal players get five chances. What's up with this ref?

9:36 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LOL, Gooner! Fair enough on your description of the ref.

9:37 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Match is getting increasingly choppy with the ref blowing his whistle for everything.

9:38 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - shame. Zardes got to the by-line but couldn't bend it like Beckham.

9:39 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

No foul would have been a better call there. Gingeree cant' get anything right at the moment.

9:39 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Romero plowed into Dozy again. How many of those is the ref going to allow tonight?

9:39 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The match loaded again and it's still 1-1 from H.E.B. Park win the 74th minute

9:40 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Dozy goes down in the box in a heap of bodies. Call goes the other way.

9:40 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

You two will be surprised to read that there is another water break . It's at the haf hour mark in the half.

9:43 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zardes is fouled just outside the El Sal box.

9:43 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Shouldn't that have been a pen?

9:43 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carillo punches away the free kick

9:44 PM

The US has to capitalize on its height advantage at these set pieces.

9:44 PM

I'm for it. No problem with that in this heat. I came over here from a dip in the Alex city pool and I feel like a new man. And this year, I'm a senior citizen and it's $2 admission for me.

9:45 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bruce Arena letting the officials have it and I don't blame him.

9:46 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lovely - I'm looking for the OAP concession in the coming years.

9:46 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Congratulations . Well deserved. That sounds like a great deal. Are we that old?

9:46 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I have to agree with Cobi Jones - the passing just hasn't been good enough. Dozy has been particularly poor in breaking up moves.

9:47 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

The Nipple can't beat his man over there on the dribble. Try a run outside or inside mate.

9:47 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We are that old, MUR. How many months off retirement are you, now?

9:47 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Dozy's passing, the Duece's passing, and it goes without saying Zardes's passing.

9:48 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

55 and older you whippersnappers.

9:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ceren is down under a challenge from Jozy. It's really irritating that El Sal compensates for lack of talent by feigning injury. Their elimination will be a good riddance.

9:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It's 22 and a half months and counting, mate. You two are invited for my retirement party.

9:50 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We'll have the stripogram on order, mate.

9:50 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Agreed. I've retired from El Salvador at RFK. They and their supporters are shitty guests.

9:51 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Blimey - that Salvadoran bloke on the ground is a bit sweaty. How hot is it in Philly tonight? He looks like MUR after mowing the lawn in August at noon.

9:52 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

SERIOUSLY!!! EL SAL IS THAT INJURY PRONE. YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING!

9:52 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Gingeree is allowing a lot of bad tackling and fake injuries from the Salvadorans.

9:53 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

All of these fake injuries are ticking valuable seconds off the clock.

9:53 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That's hot. I make sure to get the mowing complete by 10 AM or wait til 7 in the evening.

9:54 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

It was 97 here today and it's snapped down to 90. And it's killer humidity.

Nice to see Lichaj giving them a taste as long at Gingeree is absent from this game.

9:54 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The ref needs to start booking the Salvadorans in order to stop the time wasting.

9:54 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! That'll do nicely! Gonzalez with the headed effort!

9:55 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! OMAR GONZALEZ GIVES THE u.s. THE LEAD.

9:56 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Lovely free kick in from Bradley and Gonzalez finally took advantage of the size mismatch.

1-0 US!

9:56 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I don't fancy Gonzalez's defensive capabilities but he is a threat up front. That was the needed goal to open the floodgates.

9:57 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Superb free kick from Bradley that Gonzalez glanced in. The Salvadorans will be forced to open up and stop the time wasting.

9:57 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Omar! 1-0

9:57 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

WOW !!! That's a typical Summer day in Harlingen. Just a taste of what we experience four months a year

9:58 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Omar tends to shine against our CONCACAF neighbors. It's Môller, Ribary, and co that tend to exploit him.

10:00 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Three minutes of stoppage time from Philly

10:00 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carillo spills a shot from Jozy then gathers the ball.

10:01 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Even Eric Lichaj is getting in on the action now!!!

10:01 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Our typical summer. Friday and the weekend are threatening triple digits

10:01 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL LICHAJ PUTS THE U.S. TWO UP OFF A PASS FROM CLINT AS HE NUT MEGGED DERBY CARILLO.

10:02 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Terrific move there, especially from Dempsey with the swivel and pass into space for Lichaj. Fantastic.

1-0!

10:02 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sounds like typical July weather here.

10:02 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The U.S. is two up at the half.

10:03 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Nice! All that farting about by the Salvadorans results in added time extended from the 3 on the board to the 6th minute and Lichaj's goal. Just desserts for this rabble.

10:04 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into the seventh minute of stoppage time at H.E.B. Park and Jorginho James, who gifted Orange County their goal, has been sent off for R.G.V.

10:04 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Despite that it finishes 1-1 at H.E.B. Park.

10:05 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bob will be pleased that Lichaj scored his first U.S. goal. It tarted when Nagby won a tackle at the back. Jozy passed to Morrow down the left , who passed to Clint with his back at goal. He turned his defender and found the surprisingly advanced Lichaj , who got behind the El Sal defense and shot through the legs of the on rushing Carillo.

10:12 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're set for the second half....

10:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from Philly, where they are enduring South Texas like heat

10:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Larin down for El Sal. They do not have time to waste,

10:19 PM

The U.S. look set to play the Ticos at Cowboys Stadium on Saturday, which is Melanie's 18th birthday

10:20 PM

Looks like a birthday treat for Melanie. 18, eh? Cor!

10:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A cheap shot by Bonilla off the ball on Lichaj. How is that not a red card.? He was not even show a card. Drew Fisher should be banned for life from any officiating.

10:22 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

This half will all be about game management now. No reason to let ES back into this one.

10:22 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Zelaya with a wild blaze over the bar after he'd broken free. He can do that all night long.

10:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

She has decided to spend it with friends and go out to eat with us on another day. She will probably not be interested in the match

10:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just wide by Pineda as Nagby coughed up possession.

10:25 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Pinela was able to ghost by LIchaj there and should have done better with the shot. Alarm bells for the US.

10:25 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

After this performance, a return to ER may be on the cards for Lichaj.

10:28 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Little Susie for Matt Hedges, immediately.

10:29 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - a couple of good chances there for the US.

10:29 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mancia heads out for a U.S. corner off a volleyed cross from Arriola.

10:29 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

PHEW!!! A superb El Sal break, but they couldn't take advantage and superb defending by Lichaj to prevent any El Sal chances.

10:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Oscar Ceren on for Mayen, not the Mayan.

10:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Larin booked for a nasty challenge on Arriola.

10:32 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

#4 bit Jozy! 4th official should be able to view that and stop the match to let Gingeree know that it happened.

10:35 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Shocking performance by the ref tonight.

10:36 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Another scare for the U.S. as Pineda has a free header and it's over from three yards out.

10:36 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Where was Dozy bit? I didn't see it.

10:36 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Morrow tackles Ceren for the first El Sal corner of the match,

10:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It was off a corner. He was pushed to the ground by the defender and Ginger missed it , as usual.

10:38 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The Pie Eater is on for Arriola.

10:38 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Zardes has a pass intended for the Pie Eater out for a corner.

10:39 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

At the corner, Romero who was marking him, leaned in and bit the back of his shoulder. Dr. Joe imagines that because the Gingeree didn't see it, it can be retroactively punished. Heavily because Romero has been a comedy villain all night.

10:40 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

More argybargy between Romero and Dozy.

10:40 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carillo miss judges the corner from Bradley and Benson and Hedges heads over.,

Morrow is chopped down.

10:43 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Acosta on for Zardes.

10:43 PM  
Blogger gooner71 said...

Possession stats for the US on the up-tick now that Zardes is off and Acosta is on.

10:44 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Carillo does well to catch the free kick from Bradley.

10:44 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Still not convinced by Zardes. He does provided some much needed width. But his final delivery is poor.

10:45 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Superb last ditch tackle by Bradley then close range block from Timmy then a desperate clearance to end the threat,

10:46 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. His delivery is almost bad as that from Trump.

10:47 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Well...I wouldn't say that....

10:48 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Dempsey let fly there - Carilla tipped it aside.

Carillo pushes away a long range effort from Clint.

10:55 PM

Alas, it's the final sub for El Sal as Bonilla is off.

10:55 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Tamacas booked for a rash foul on Morrow.

10:56 PM

The fee kick from Bradley was just too high for Clint.

Orellana fouls Nagby.

We seem to have shut up shop at this point. Should be an easy berth to the semis with the Ticos on Saturday now.
