Midweek Action: Bradley Starts for BMG

October 28, 2008

Michael Bradley started today for Moenchengladbach against Wolfsburg and he did not perform well.  He saw little of the ball, and when he did have a chance to score he provided a poor finish.  To make matters worse, in the 54th minute Bradley’s lazy marking on a set piece led to Wolfsburg’s second goal as his man rose above him to head home.

Tough stuff for Bradley Jr, especially as this has been his chance to impress the new manager.  I’m not sure he’s done so, and I’m not sure that we’ll see much more of Michael in the BMG starting lineup.  In fact, the whole BMG squad looks quite poor in possession and attack and they have little composure (throughout the match they committed poor fouls and earned a few stupid cards by talking back too much).  While it is still very early in the season, I have a feeling they’re going to be steeped in the relegation battle for the coming months.

Though I may sound overdramatic, I have to ask: What was Michael Bradley thinking when he decided to join this club? And maybe it’s also appropriate to ask, what was his agent thinking when advising him??  Borussia Moenchengladbach is a mess.

Ah well, a little further west on the European continent, Maurice Edu started for Rangers today in the Co-operative Insurance cup.  Beasley isn’t in the squad but I’m glad that Maurice is getting minutes.  It’s nearly halftime there now, and Rangers are up 1-0.  Maurice hasn’t been mentioned much in the gamecast but hopefully he can regain some confidence and start to compete for a place in the side.

More games tomorrow and a potential chance for Dempsey to start for Fulham.  Keep tabs!
