Googlin', it looks like 1500 to 1.    Hull is a bottom feeder in the odds.    :)

I bet there is lots of action over there on the bottom teams after what happened last year.

The "dives" look more painful than the contact.

Should have had Andy Capp place 50 quid on Hull for me.

Didn't they do what Leicester did to everyone last year: concede position and then strike on counterattacks?  Bunch of cowards!

Cowards I say!  She should have been happy that she did not have to face Brasil in front of their home fans.  They would have been all over her.  Wanna bet that some network picks her up as an expert commentator down the road to get better ratiings?

Oh that's right.    That's extra early for you.

Hershey boy might go to the EPL. That'd be a sound move, IMO. Gonna be hard to get minutes with Dortmund

Might be hard to get minutes,  but maybe the competition elevates his game and someone gets hurt.  Could put him in the mix.  Might be better to shoot for the moon at this point.  If he was 20+ and needed to start playing,  then he should move.  He's not at a critical juncture yet.

If a team is dropping 20 mil on him, they're gonna want him to play.

Dortumd brought in too many vets (not to mention Reus) who play similar roles as Pulisic. Great chance to learn though, like you mentioned. There's no rush, but he's obviously a wanted talent.

Solo had her contract with the USWNT terminated and she has been booted for 6 months.  When is the next major tournament?

Isn't this a net win for the USWNT? Or is she really that talented of a goal keeper?

No, she's not. She's also 35 and sucked ass (whoops...) in the Olympics. PR move to finally cut her loose, but it was going to happen soon enough anyways. At least they didn't parade her around like Wambach...

Deadspin phrased it well, now that they're done needing her, they got rid of her
