Re: soccer soccer soccer

Re: The MNT, it's worth keeping in mind that was the first game with close to an A squad, and Berhalter is doing a lot of very progressive/experimental stuff tactically. It's not all going to work, especially without a longer camp in the lead up. The Gold Cup this summer is going to be very interes...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Lots of good things going on for Americans. Tyler Adams is dominating bundesliga midfields, pulisic is undeniable at the moment, and Jordan Morris comes back from injury and looks like the player we hoped he could become. This could be a fun gold cup - at least its real games. Has Jordan Morris don...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

Apart from the fact that his power numbers would take a hit, I don’t see why SF doesn’t make sense for Harper. Great city (especially if you’re rich), gorgeous park, fairly wealthy club that figures to contend more often than not. His power/counting numbers take a hit for a guy looking to build a H...

Re: Should we talk about the weather? (Hi-hi-hi!)

Only an 80 degree temp swing in 4-5 days. You know, just like going from 50 to 130 degrees in mid-July I once flew from Houston where it was 81 degrees to Denver where it was -5 when I landed. So 86 degrees in two hours. Yet it was still probably more enjoyable to be in Denver. (I've taken that fli...

Re: The Travel Thread

I wouldn't plan on too much hiking in the mountains in spring - unless you bring snowshoes you'll need to be 6000' or lower in all likelihood. Yosemite is one place that never disappoints. May is best time to go imo. Sequoia is good with little kids (ie short hikes) or for backpacking (Kings Canyon ...

yea, Sancho is good. I would be worried about PT with Liverpool.

Jose Mourinho was fired today. Not too surprising. This one was coming all year. He’s held 8 jobs and only once has he coached into the fourth year.

Bremen at Dortmund and Sargent gets on the pitch before Pulisic (at least he played). Time for Christian to move on.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I’d really like to see these numbers actually since it’s been a topic we often discuss and find out if the offense is really all that volatile and varies that much compared to other teams. I feel like on surface every teams fans thinks their offense isn’t “consistent” enough. The numbers would be v...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

I personally think the primary concern for any young keeper should be playing time (not just Steffen, the same was true for Courtois when he first signed for Chelsea). Given where Steffen is in his career, I think he's better off playing every week (even in Breda, I'd even say especially in Breda) ...
