Norway 0 England 1 - Meh

Good for 30 minutes, rubbish for 60 minutes.

Although it's the first time in my memory that I can remember us beating Denmark, Sweden and Norway all in the same season.

It was cool to see the USMNT beat up on Scotland last night. Of course, it is Scotland...

And I kinda dig their new kits. Makes me think of the American flag, which I'm sure was the intent.

Oh, yeah, sorry. Defcon's right, I was talking about the U.S. men's national team.

Hazard to Chelski

Utd would of been so better for him linking up with the likes of Rooney, Young, Chicharito, Welbeck etc.

Plus with either Utd or City he'd at least know who his manager was going to be!

That was my guess I'm almost disappointed at what it really is - thanks both!

Quite an exciting few days for a post-season. The League One play-off final had the most incredible shoot-out I've seen in a long time.

Chelsea get Hazard (for silly money, frankly). United get Kagawa. I reckon United might have the better deal you know - Hazard seems to love himself a bit too much and thinks he's better than he actually is.

Liverpool apparently get Brendan Rodgers. Who the hell is going to go to Swansea and continue their style of football? Do I even care? I'd fancy good money on both Liverpool and Swansea getting relegated actually - long shot, but Rodgers isn't walking into a readymade set-up there and had a hell of a lot of work to do to get them playing how he'd like. It could go hilariously wrong. And poor old Swansea, cast aside, managerless, with their record transfer in the balance and the entire league swarming over their stars all summer.

I'm glad I only have to worry about dodgy transfers from Peterborough and Coventry

After just one season in the Prem...

Well I guess it's a brave choice if nothing else.

Martinez to Villa now maybe?

Getting ready to watch the U.S. take on Brazil in about ten minutes. I'm not expecting them to win, but hopefully they'll make things interesting.

How did it turn out?

Are the non-Euro nations having all these friendlies in preparation for anything in particular over the summer?

Turned out not very well for us Americans. 4-1 for Brazil, though at least we generated some decent chances, and one of their goals was a ridiculously awarded penalty.

Anyway, as for what we're preparing for, the World Cup qualifying starts up for the US I think the same day Euro 2012 kicks off... June 8?

We have one more friendly before that against Canada. Hopefully we can kick them around a bit to get that "we're still nowhere near competing with Brazil" taste out of our mouths.

Basically what Yoda said. Brazil's first goal came off of a really harsh handball call, but aside from that they pretty much outplayed the U.S. The Americans had a few chances to score, but a combination of bad luck and great goalkeeping kept them from getting more than just one.

And yeah, the U.S.'s first World Cup qualifier is on June 8 versus Antigua and Barbuda.

Ah of course. Qualifying. Geez, the European groups must start in the autumn as well. It's non-stop!
