No shortage of headlines today!

And for once... All links to really good news. What a day we had!

I only saw the game in 1 hour on GolTV, but I'm going to also give props to the goalkeeper for keeping:) If it was Bendik in net I believe he would have let in the equalizer.

Stefan Frei, looked like a #2 goalkeeper out there, maybe he's just been away for too long.

Holy headlines Batman!

Seleção number one Júlio César has good official debut for Toronto FC (http://www.sambafoot.com/en/news/58194__.html?)

Highly respected Brazil journalist Paulo Freitas wrote for Soccerly that the Queens Park Rangers loanee impressed and that his performance received acclaim from the Brazilian press.

Terra and Lancenet both mentioned that he had a good game whilst Globo Esporte stated he wasn’t to blame for the goal he conceded.

Statistics website Whoscored.com gave Júlio César a respectable 6.6 rating and state that he made six claims from crossers to highlight his performance.

I think we often remeber Frei for standout performances on a poor team. He is a good shot stopper, but has never dealt with crosses well.

Kelly's article was hilarious...

Kelly's article was hilarious...

Not down with comparing Bradley to Gretzky?

Kelly's article was hilarious...

A bit hyperbolic lol.

Leave Stefan Fly. Glad he's earned the starting spot out there. Great finishing makes good keepers look bad....

Osorio is for real.

Playing with Jermain and Bradely will let him shine.
