Not necessarily a ghost town, but close to it. In other words, a downward population shift due to crime, environmental effects, mass migration to other locales, etc. that is so much stronger than what has been going on in Detroit the past decade or so.

Glassman's post on the Bale thread got me thinking about this. Who are the greatest players to never play in a World Cup? It can be guys who were on stacked national teams who couldn't quite break in, guys who had run-ins with national team coaches, or guys who played for countries that weren't go...
