| Soccer Board|| What will it take for the US to advance out of the group stage at the WC? - cwil177 on 4/22/14 at 11:40 am|
Just thought I would spur a discussion today not involving David Moyes.
I find it interesting that some have announced publicly that they think the US will do well. Raymond Domenech thinks the US makes the quarters (although honestly this probably hurts our case more than helps it), while [link=(...

| Soccer Board|| What's Jurgen Wearing? - cwil177 on 4/18/14 at 7:57 pm|
apparently there is a website dedicated to Jurgen's attire, and there are even links provided for some of the shirts, jackets, etc.
I figured I would post this here since people always jizz their pants over his jackets in the in game threads for USMNT games.

| Soccer Board|| Is possession % overrated? - cwil177 on 4/5/14 at 10:10 pm|
The results from today's games got me thinking. Certain teams really value possession, but there were several instances today where the percentages were around 60:40 with the 40% team coming out on top.
