| Soccer Board|| What is Landon going to do after soccer? - mynamebowl on 1/15/15 at 10:41 pm|
What does he do now? The TV thing is kind of obvious I guess, because he's done it before and was good at it. Smart and honest. Even though his voice is hilarious. Coaching doesn't seem likely.
I actually kind of think he will play soccer again for someone. I think he's done in America, but I c...
| Soccer Board|| Soccer cleats for flag football? - mynamebowl on 1/11/15 at 3:54 pm|
I'm thinking about going with soccer cleats instead of football cleats for this flag football league that I'm in. I have no practical reason for doing this. I just like the look of them. Pros/Cons?
ETA I ask because I've never played a game of soccer in my life. Just football/baseball through hig...

It's critical he goes to the right kind of club. Because he did not the last time he switched clubs. I talked myself into it being a good move for him at the time. But deep down I kind of new it was not the right place for him. It didn't seem to make any sense. A mid table/bottom of the table Premie...

Just came across it on the nbc sports channel. 30 minute sit down with Rebecca Lowe. They show it on repeat pretty often I think. Really good stuff. He seems like an awesome dude. Would love to see the guy go out on top and make another run at a major trophy.
I would try to find a link but it's ...
| Soccer Board|| FIFA Controller Settings Questions/Tips - mynamebowl on 9/20/14 at 3:18 am|
I've played the game for several years now, mostly Ultimate Team or the online club seasons. I am decent, but by no means an expert. I'm curious as to how you guys prefer to set up your controller settings: Assisted, Semi, or all the way Manual? I've tried going manual a couple times, but I just don...
| 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|| Jozy - mynamebowl on 6/26/14 at 2:56 pm|
Is 2 weeks worth of rehab enough for a hamstring pull? Having him back would be massive. It's amazing we made it out of this group without him for basically all 3 games....
| 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 ...

Quote from one of the posts in the thread:

Is this sarcasm or is this actually the English football fans frame of thought? I've noticed this before. I've...

This is kind of a spinoff from all the "what club should I follow/who is your favorite club" threads.
I've been following the sport for about 10 years now and still have not picked a favorite club. Probably never will. I can't really understand the concept. It never crossed my mind that I needed ...

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...
