Ugh, be still my aching Herz, Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The one good thing about today’s match is that it brings us one match closer to the end of the season, right? Right.
Oh hey, who’s the hero of the day?
I am not sure if you are aware, but Steven Gerrard is our captain, Steven Gerrard is a Red, Steven Gerrard plays for Liverpool, a Scouser born and bred.
Yesterday marked the first day where MLS, EPL, and the Bundesliga all converged again in the space-time continuum which meant I literally did nothing except watch soccer yesterday. Four games. And that doesn’t include the two I’m watching today! This is how it will be until the end of the MLS season in October (unless Toronto miraculously make the playoffs which seems… unlikely).
