MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] The future of Brad Guzan's Aston Villa in the English Premier League looks a lot brighter after a 6-1 demolition thanks to young Belgian sensation Christian Benteke's second-half hat-trick. In Austria, employees at Terrence Boyd's Rapid Vienna got a big surprise Monday morning when Rapid fans built a brick wall overnight and blocked their entrance to the club offices.

The win was Villa's biggest since 2008 and moved it five points clear of the Premier League relegation zone, where Wigan sits third to last in front of Queens Park Rangers and Reading, which have both been relegated.

Villa now sits in a three-way tie for 15th place with Sunderland and Newcastle United.

The Rapid Ultras hung a photo of Rapid Vienna general manager Werner Kuhn on the wall with the message: “I’m not allowed in.”

Rapid is third in the Austrian Bundesliga, 23 points behind city rival Austria Wien in first place and 17 behind Red Bull Salzburg.

    Paul...you really surprise me with your articles. Your last commentary had to do with the MLS being ranked 7th in the World, etc, etc. Source? O dear...This morning focuses the "Premier League Relegation Zone!" Want to report something that might turn the game around in this country? Break down and assist the MLS, NASL and USL to become 1! Write on this Paul! Out of all the "mumbo we have been reading, this will become one of the most interesting SA reports in the History of the publication! And by the way...without a Promo/Rel system, there is absolutely NO WAY the MLS can be considered 7th in the world...other than the business conducted...standard of play? Dreadful! Let's see what "what you got" Paul!

    I personally like the tought provoking aricle about being 7th. Though I am a Pariot for my friens Sigi and the Sounders, I enjoy the soccer RSL has put out. The Rred, white, black and Blue of last years San Jose and this year it is the turn around of the Timbers. Yes, I watched Bayern and Barcelona, the premier League and so on but the MLS has done a good job of growing slower, soccer stadiums specific. And remember we live in a country where I can accept soccer will not be 1, 2, or, 3 Except maybe in the youth being raised in my Dad's legacy AYSO. So Go sounders, go MLS, and I am okay that the US is not number 1 in everything. But I would have to say in Women's soccer we paved and inspired the World and have goal scorers in that field. Okay I will stop. Thanks Paul
