    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Arsenal fans let out a deep breathe. The Invincibles are safe for another year. Dear Lord this must be what it feels like to be a Miami Dolphins fan

    Just finished listening to the American Fiasco podcast hosted by Roger Bennett from Men in Blazers. Released this past summer before the World Cup, the ten part series chronicles the 1998 US Menís Team as it qualifies for and eventually bombs out of the Ď98 World Cup.

    Iím not a big podcast guy but it was fascinating. Would recommend it to any soccer fan (casual or diehard.)

    ATLUTD ó first three games: ouch, WOW, ugh. Monterrey will be tough.

    Euro ó have a chance to see Paris Saint-Germain at Parc does Princes. Any tips/advice? The Ultrŗs were curbed greatly the last few years so I assume the really rowdy stuff is minimal compared to many other places.

    "Parc Does Princes". Lol at that autocorrect. Were you there for the Champions League game yesterday? That would have been intense.

    That handball call at the end was -- questionable.

    Was not there for that, unfortunately. It would be a league game in about a month.

    Ah, I thought it was a legit call (so did the lads in the studio...hey, aren't you Steve Nash?)...pretty ballsy by the German ref, what with the French home crowd, but since when are the Germans shy in Paris ? (rhetorical question).
    PSG ultra squandered that game, giving up a couple of stupid goals...they utterly controlled play for long stretches, appeared to think they could score at will, but didn't. (at one point they had
    possession 80% of the match)...

    And that early goal they gave up was just a really dumb defensive play.

    Dunno about the handball -- player was turning his back, yeah his arm was not against his torso but it was not hanging out to block either. Tough call, and as you say a ballsy call. At that point, you know that giving the handball almost certainly takes the game from penalties to Man U winning.

    it surely was a game determining call, not to mention a series determining call, no doubt about it. I thought the defender's arm was sticking pretty far out...had the ref made that call in the UK against a British team, they might still be feeding on the ref's carcass...all in all I think PSG took the game rather cavalierly, much to their detriment...

    Fair read.

    I missed ATLUTD getting their fannies smacked in Monterrey, but did not sound encouraging. Some growing pains for the new coach, a win this weekend against Cincinnati would be helpful.

    I too missed that match, but the de Boer era is not off to the greatest of starts, to say the least. Guzan is also not looking good...howlers in both the MLS opener and the match in Monterrey.
    Got to win on Sunday...no excuse to lose in the Benz vs. an expansion squad.
