Yes, ManCity is on a roll. Undefeated in 18 straight games.  Ten points ahead of second place ManU.

Back home, the US Women's national team beat Brazil to win that tournament.  They look really good.


Man City lost to Spurs 2-0 on November 20, 2020. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I watched the USWNT match yesterday, and while they looked good, they didn't look great. Until that late goal from Megan Rapinoe in the 88th minute, Brazil looked like they could equalize at several moments during the second half.

(And that fluttering sound you just heard was my heart's reaction when I typed the words "Megan Rapinoe.")

I was surprised at how negative Atletico were.  NOT surprised at Suarez's dirty tricks.


Princess, would you like to see it light up and hum when I wave it about

I heard a fluttering sound last night when Megan Rapinoe  scored the first goal for the U S Women's team as they routed Argentina  6 - 0 to g place first in the tournament and win the cup.  She also scored a second goal before being replaced in the 61st minute. The team played very well in the first half and was a little sloppy in the second half but still scored two goals. I don't think Argentina even had a shot on goal the entire goal.

Way to go U.S. Women's team.

Just finished watching the ManCity match and can see why they are far ahead in points over second place ManU.    ManCity has not lost a match this year. They are quick and pass the ball exceptionally well. Their defense is very good also. Hard to see any other team win enough games to over take ManCity.
