| Soccer Board|| Yellow Card Suspension - mynamebowl on 7/5/14 at 4:34 pm|
2 yellows in 1 match = player suspended for the rest of that match.
1 yellow in 2 separate matches = player suspended for the entirety of the next match.
I'm sure it's been discussed already, but in what galaxy does this make any sense? Suspension for an entire game is far too harsh of a punis...
| Soccer Board|| Cameron in the midfield - mynamebowl on 6/30/14 at 10:35 am|
Beckerman has worked his balls off and played really well so far, but I have a bad feeling about him going up against Belgium's midfield of Witsel and Fellaini. I could see him getting smothered by Fellaini, especially with where Wilmots has played him further up the field. I wouldn't mind Jurgen si...
| Soccer Board|| Will Julian Green play any part in this World Cup? - mynamebowl on 6/30/14 at 4:22 am|
So far, it's an obvious no. He played some in the run up games before the tournament, and didn't really impress me tbh. But will Jurgen throw him out there at some point or was this just an experience thing having him in the squad? Our options are pretty thin, especially after the Jozy thing. He's l...

| Soccer Board|| Brasil - mynamebowl on 6/17/14 at 5:28 pm|
They look lethargic as hell. They ran their asses off and played with some real passion last year at the Confed Cup, but seem disinterested through these 2 games. I had a feeling the talent on this squad was overstated, but I didn't think they would look this bad. How in god's name does a player of ...
| Soccer Board|| If Jozy is out for the tournament - mynamebowl on 6/16/14 at 11:09 pm|
I'm hoping it looked worse than it may turn out to be, but I'm not optimistic. If he is done, which of our forwards might Jurgen give the most opportunities? Green, Johannsson, Wondo? And what kind of switches will need to be made in terms of tactics if we don't have that target man to go through?...
| Soccer Board|| Thoughts on whose name to wear on my back. - mynamebowl on 5/7/14 at 3:45 pm|
I bought the US Home jersey from USSoccershop.com without a name and number because it looks more like a Polo anyway.
Regarding my pending purchase of the away jersey, I'm thinking Johannsson. One problem though, I don't know what number he is wearing. worldsoccershop has him wearing 9, is that ...

This is kind of a spinoff from all the "what club should I follow/who is your favorite club" threads.

I'm watching the replay of the PSG/St Etienne match on DVR and good lord this guy is good. The great Ray Hudson called him the best pure striker in the world, bar none. I completely agree. It seems like sometimes he's overlooked when talking about the best of this generation and the best of all time...

At City this Wednesday, at Arsenal a week from that. A March 1 back to back starting at home against West Brom, followed up by a League Cup Final against City the next night at Wembley. Surely they will reschedule or they may already have idk, getting this stuff from ESPNs future fixture list.

Because the other thread has turned into another silly MLS/Europe/USMNT retarded free for all debate.

He's a good player and all but Jesus Christ what is United thinking?. He's surely the worst player that regularly starts...
