  2. The USMNT Thread

    Gulati has been amazing for the USMNT from a business and commercial standpoint, truthfully. He is a major part of why we have so much money in our federation right now. I'm not sure if replacing him is honestly going to do much for what is wrong with our country. Our youth programs continue to be awful. Pay to play for profit, uneducated coaching, no next level training for that 15-18 age group. Those are the real issues for me. We need to use all this excess money to help get lower income kids better access to club soccer, not being turned down because their families can't afford several thousand a year for club fees. We need to properly educate coaches, and when it comes to obtaining coaching licenses, it shouldn't be the several thousand dollars it costs. MLS needs to do more with their sides setting up academies as well. Until that happens, we will continue to have major issues. As for the next manager, I want someone who will restore heart to this side. I don't think a foreign manager does that. I know a lot of people have talked about trying to get Tata considering his success with Atlanta, but I'm all for Vermes. He's done consistently excellent work with SKC, built a project, and deserves a chance. As for Arena, he is still hands down the best manager in MLS history. I would take him at the Union in a heart beat.

    Well, hopefully it's house cleaning time. From the top with Gulati, to Bruce Arena, to many of the players. Why we wanted to play the attacking diamond formation, on the road, on a bad pitch, when you only need a point... So fucking stupid. All three keepers need to be done. I'd only be fine with Guzan serving a back up role to mentor. Yedlin is arguably the only defender I keep. Villafana is certainly not the answer at left back; he is awful. Cameron is most likely done considering his age. Besler is the only one worth potentially keeping around. Up top, the attack should stay what it is, I think. For all the stick he gets, Altidore is decent, and he had good chemistry with Wood and Pulisic. I'm all about Pulisic being the #10 of this team, and playing behind those two strikers. But if that's the plan, we need to have an energetic midfield, capable of providing defensive cover. We haven't done that, and it bit us in the ass. With that being said, it's time for Michael Bradley to be done too. As a captain, he failed this team. No leadership. Ponderous. Not enough energy. It's time for new blood.

    Panama will be at home to a probably already qualified Costa Rica team on one less day's rest then them, so that could very easily be a win for Panama.

    Even if they only manage a draw, they're most likely securing the final automatic spot considering Honduras play Costa Rica and Mexico while Panama finish with Costa Rica. However, a win in T&T is the expectation at this point, for me. Last night was a great performance, and when Pulisic plays in a #10 role behind Altidore and Wood, we're dangerous and score goals. However, it leaves Michael Bradley with too much ground to cover in the middle, and our defense is left exposed often as a result.

    ODB just mimicked being a dog and pissing in the end zone. All the more reason to hate that douche.

    First Burnley chance, first Burnley goal. Typical Lolerpool. Klavan literally turned away from the ball in fear. We're so pathetic at the back.

    So what you're trying to say is - Rooney to jail is a DONE DEAL!? Another late deadline day shocker!
  9. Summer Transfer Window 2017

    I'm very curious to see what kind of craziness tomorrow brings, and Friday for that matter since La Liga's still open then. For us, it's still all about Coutinho. If we bring in Lemar, I feel that's Coutinho sold. If not, I'm hoping he stays still. It's gone very cold on the CB front too. At this rate, I fully expect Sanchez to be sold tomorrow since Arsenal are in free fall, and I imagine the Costa fiasco gets sorted out too.

    Big Divvy Origi is apparently off to Wolfsburg on loan

    I really hope we don't buy Ox. He's not worth that kind of money at all. I'd rather get Lemar, a CB, and get Can a new contract

    So glad I didn't pay to watch that

    How Matip failed to score that header though is beyond me.

    When Britos shoots that forward, Richarlson is clearly impacting the play because he's right on Miggy. He's past all the Liverpool players. It's a clear offside to me unless I'm somehow missing something
