    All that national team duty has done Bradley a lot of credit. He is playing Milan straight up, no respect for their talent. Some of his team have been a bit timid, I think.

    He just dispossessed babhinio in the open field but the ball ended up long for the milan striker.

    true he is, but he's been struggling a bit this year. Paloschi has a ton of potential still, but if you listen to him talk he's still more worried about proving he belongs at Milan than focusing on helping Chievo all the time.

    Mikey starts an attack with a pass down the wing that leads to a shot that goes just wide. Really should have put that one away...

    it looks a lot like a 4-3-2-1 with bradley playing the RM of the 3. I could be wrong.

    The announcer has not stopped saying Bradley's name all match.

    Chievo with a rocket that the keeper saves, then have another chance go high off the ensuing corner. They are due for one...

    Bradley has played a very good match. The team just cant finish. He just cut back for the center and the player in teh box skied it for a corner. He is winning balls in the midfield and instantly sending in a good ball on attack.

    Im watching in Brazil and the Brazilian announcers seem to be commenting on his play quite a bit as well.

    Other than perhaps doing a little better with his free kicks, he's playing great.

    74': Bradley looking a little gassed now. He's had a solid game but a few tired passes in the past few mins.

    Gotta love a match with sideline advertisements for Parmagiano cheese.

    Plus a handball in the box.

    I only saw the last half hour. Thought Mike looked just ok. Some nifty footwork on sidelines and some good defending, but also a couple of giveaways that Chievo were lucky not to get punished for.

    Chievo played well enough to earn a draw. A few very dangerous chances missed. Soccer sucks that way sometimes. They are playing much better soccer now than back in September, when the first 2 games I watched were unbearable.

    MB played well until the last 15-20 minutes, when he tired and his passing dropped off. Indeed, the whole team slumped late in the game.
