Aston Villa beat Philadelphia Union 1-0 very early this morning and the team is below. However, I can't tell you anything about the game because I didn't watch it. It isn't because these results mean nothing or because I didn't want to watch the match, I did, but the time was just no good for me.
I've got a feeling someone will post a link to something on YouTube showing the goal from The Fonz too and because there was only one, that will keep me happy.
The reason I actually wanted to watch though was because it would be nice to see the football. If this was the second or third season with Lambert then I'd not be interested, but because it is his first and because he is going to be, hopefully, trying to keep the ball on the ground and making players want to be involved, I would have liked to have seen if that was the case.
The flip side of wanting to see that though is he has only had the players for a few weeks so not seeing it wouldn't be a surprise either as these things can take time. I just hope that is the way they are going.
But there are other games and I hope to get one of them. First up is Chicago and talk is you will be able to see the game on CSNChicago.com and Chicago-Fire.com but I'm not 100% sure you wont have to pay and there will also be a stream or two from somewhere, so stay tuned, so to speak.
After Chicago is Portland and again, there will probably be a stream or two for that, we'll have to wait and see, but we will also be having a guest post from a Portland fan sometime soon, so if you wanted to know a little more about the team, hopefully that will be up tomorrow or Saturday.
