I've seen comments about the Western Europe brand of soccer vs the South American brand rearing it's ugly head in this game.
I have too much skin re: this topic because 1) I lived in Argentina and 2) the idea of a Netherlands vs Germany final makes me want to puke.
However, besides Messi w...

| Soccer Board|| Tim Howard - bisonduck on 6/22/14 at 9:40 pm|
How would you rate him thus far?
He has been a mixed bag in my opinion. Getting beat near post against Ghana but his play after a rebound has been elite.
We need him to be mistake free and for Bradley to play his best game. Tim playing out his mind is what we need to get out of this round. ...

Last year was a down year. The signal callers and skill spots were great but the defenses experienced historic attrition the year before. This year we watched Mettenberger, Murray, Manziel, McCarron and Shaw come and go. However, the defenses will be better. It's really tough to get a beat of th...

I see the O/U is about 60 and the spread about 15, so Vegas has the scoreline around 37-22. Do expect that production in the first game of the year?
So, if the over/under is 37 points - what do you got and why do you see it that way.
I personally see this game ending up more like 28-21. I t...
