Hazard is going to Real. This is about to be the best current soccer news for me. Real needs to get back into the game!

They have also signed striker Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt, who was highly sought after and are closing in on the left back Mendy from Lyon. Spurs’ Eriksen may not be far behind.

Anybody planning to watch the Women's World Cup? I'm watching Germany China and the Germans look strong although the Chinese defend well and could be dangerous on the counter.

I’ve tried to enjoy women’s soccer...I just can’t.

Probably the Netherlands' games at least. We are reigning European Champions after all.

Yes, you are the reigning World Champions, so that should only help to make it more enjoyable.

possibly the discomfort of the subliminal implications of the whole ball-kicking thing.

Not to stir the shit in the pot...just comparing men's soccer to women's, and finding lack of interest on my part to watch women's matches.

I don’t think you should or can compare them. When I watch women’s tennis, I’m not thinking that way. I just enjoy it. Same with the WWC.

Why shouldn’t I be able to compare? Naturally, men have more physical strength, endurance, are faster, generally taller,  etc, everything that for me translates into a much more exciting game. 

As far as the team sports, I do enjoy watching women’s volleyball.

Of course you can if you wish. I again bring up tennis where the men have all the qualities you describe but the women’s game is quite exciting. The women’s draw in the French Open was actually more interesting than the men’s draw.

At the end of the day, if you don’t like it, nothing I can say will change your mind so I won’t try.

A good result for Spain today in Euro qualifying, 3-0 over Sweden.

Nice match. I was at the Santiago Bernabeu with my wife and my youngest son. Very lively and colorful environment...

The USA Thailand match is a complete embarrassment. You wouldn’t see this in the Men’s game.

I won't watch, but I'll be happy if Chile makes the USWNT collectively cry.

I’d be happy for anyone to beat the Americans. 

Watching the Spain Germany match. It’s a very close match so far but the Spanish keeper made a mistake that might cost them the match.

Pobre Messi...

Yes, I watched it, the whole thing. What is your opinion.

The Copa America is behind a Fox Sports paywall here, so I don't watch it. Premier League, La Liga, Serie A games and Formula 1 are behind the Ziggo Sports paywall. Ziggo is also one of the main cable operators, and they have a free channel that shows all Formula 1 races and most top Premier League and La Liga games live for their subscribers. Only when events overlap do you miss out on having the complete Ziggo Sports package. So I have access to most of these events for 'free'. Admittedly, I'm not enough of a fan to pay extra.
