re: SB Idea - Expanding Our Horizons
Posted by wm72 on 7/24 at 2:11 pm
I always follow Cagliari since I used to spend a lot of time there and went to a lot of their matches. Should be fun since they just hired Zeman. I'll post something on them here and there. I'll think about a Ligue 1 club as well since I find myself enjoying those matches on BeIN. ...

[quote]I thought Juventus was going to the 4-3-3 as well. With two strikers it makes sense because you have depth for Llorente, but who knows where Tevez is going to play in the 4-3-3. And they seemed to give up the Sanchez chase rather easily, yet they spend 22 mil on a backup attacking player? Ver...

The story really hasn't come out aside from this swipe from an interview but obviously Rossi didn't react well to being left off the 23 man roster. Supposedly the rest of the squad didn't like it either. The first thing that did come out after the loss to Uruguay was how strongly the rest o...

If the Genoa interest is true, then it makes a lot more sense for Yedlin to go ahead and move now before the summer. Genoa's starting RB Šime Vrsaljko from last season just moved to AC Milan so Yedlin would have seem to have a decent chance to win a starting job or at least a lot of PT. O...

I'm not an expert but it seems there's 2 distinct questions being addressed: 1) Is soccer supplanting hockey as the 4th most popular sport in the USA? 2) Is the MLS supplanting the NHL as the 4th most popular league in the USA? For question 1, I'd say it already has (probably by a pretty bi...
