Throughout my years as a soccer fan I have seen some pretty stupid things. Such as Arsenal blowing a lead by tying a bunch of games in row this year, but forget that for now. Also, I have heard some pretty dumb things. Below is my list of the top 10 dumbest quotes from the players you love to watch. Enjoy!
10. Ugo Ehiogu- “I’m as happy as I can be…but I’ve been happier.”
9. David Beckham- “My parents have always been there for me, ever since I was about 7.”
8. Lee Hendrie- “I took a whack on my left ankle, but something told me it was my right.”
7. Mark Viduka- “I wouldn’t be bothered if we lost every game, as long as we won the league.”
6. Les Ferdinand- “I was surprised, but I always say nothing surprises me in football.”
5. Mitchell Thomas- “All that remains is for a few dots and commas to be crossed.”
4. Stan Collymore- “I faxed a transfer request to the club at the beginning of the week, but let me state I don’t want to leave.”
3. Barry Venison- “I always used to put my right boot on first, and then obviously my right sock.”
2. Thierry Henry- “Sometimes in football you have to score goals.”
drum roll please….
1. Ronaldo- “We lost because we didn’t win.”

Quickly let me get some of my frustration out from today. Although I am fan of the English Premiership as a whole, I find myself as a fan of Arsenal more than any other team. This leads to my frustration today as Arsenal blew a 1-0 lead and lost to Liverpool 4-2 in today’s Champion’s League match.
As Arsenal continue to squander all of their chances for any sort of title, Arsene Wenger continues to coach poorly. He is incapable of handling these young players and is useless unless he coaches superstars. Therefore, Arsenal needs to make a drastic change and delete Wenger from the equation. This move would mirror that of the Yankees getting rid of Torre despite their winning ways in that winning the entire thing is more important than winning a lot of games and coming up short when it matters. But I digress. So, please make a big move and shake things up again Arsenal. For now I am stuck watching MLS, but after its start on Thursday it could become the main staple in my soccer watching diet.

What was the lead highlight on Thursday night’s SportsCenter? It was an MLS game. Can you believe it? Ten years ago it was a thought that was in nobody’s head, especially ESPN. But Beckham’s first goal in the MLS is exactly what fans have been looking for, and apparently ESPN.
His first goal ignited fans in the stadium and just watching the game led you to jump out of your seat. The atmosphere of the game was outstanding. Every time Beckham would touch the ball there was an immediate buzz that was audible to a viewer. Fans were always on edge, wondering what he would do next.
Beckham played his best game of his short MLS career as he had an assist as well, to go with his first goal. Beckham dropped a ball onto Landon Donovan’s foot. Beckham couldn’t make it any easier for Donovan as he easily put the ball in the back of the net.
Beckhams skill, even though it is diminishing, is far more superior than other players in the MLS. His vision is just amazing compared to his teammates and is a great change to the MLS. It seems that the American style of play of kick and run isn’t entertaining enough to Americans as first thought. The European style of play has been more welcomed and sought after in the MLS.
The win gave the Galaxy an excellent start to the season after its awful end to last season. Beckham adn the Galaxy’s exciting start will hopefully launch the MLS to its most successful season yet.
