    I loved it when showoff ass Sturridge tried his PK stutter-step and got SAVED to lose the PKSO.

    Commenting on PK shootouts a while back, Brad Friedel mentioned that as a goalkeeper, he loved to see the taker stutter-step since it broke his tempo, and the goalkeeper could just ignore it. I haven't made any scientific analysis of percentage of PKs saved when the taker breaks his run up as opposed to those who simply make a smooth run forward and hit it, but I would bet the percentages would show the "broken run" was saved at a higher rate.

    Please don't bite on Luis', who never played the game, continued efforts to divide nationalities and races.

    Only a dishpnest racist like Gordon woul find my comment above racially negative in any way. I hope not all College Soccer coaches are like him.
