From the Sacramento Bee

Recommended Posts

But first things first: Thursday is a coming-out party for soccer in Sacramento, with an EPL team as the headliner.

Norwich City does not have the marquee name of Manchester United, last season''s champion and a worldwide brand on par with the New York Yankees.

But Norwich City beat Man U last season, one of only five defeats for the world-famous club. Norwich also beat Arsenal, another elite EPL team.

And on the last day of the season in May, Norwich defeated Manchester City – the richest team in the EPL.

The EPL''s four powerhouses – Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal – have far more financial resources than most other clubs in the league. Yet Norwich beat three of the four last season.

Norwich will begin to prepare for the EPL season by playing its exhibition opener at Raley Field as part of a preseason swing through the western United States, against Dorados of the Mexican second division.

"Sacramento Soccer Day" will begin with an exhibition between a team of local standout players and the reserve squad for the San Jose Earthquakes of MLS.

Coming out party :)

Quality stuff from our American "cousins".....

Was watching Costa Rico V USA yesterday and the half time stats came up with the ever so meaningful "clearances" and "turnovers" (cant remember the exact word used but was to that effect).

I wonder if the traditional English CB tactic of bashing the ball anywhere would make them a world beater over in the States??

L. Barnett #1 for clearances in the PL. Value : 20m.

It reads like a translation from babelfish or one of those weird signs you see in China where the direct word for word translation has made it almost meaninglesshttp://betterthanawoodennickel.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/guarda-costas_02.jpg

this one should be read in an angry Chinese woman''s voicehttp://i1.wp.com/lotsofhumor.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/490.jpg?resize=601%2C475
