re: Which country wins a World Cup next...USA or England? - crazy4lsu
After the atrocious display in the GC, I don't see how the US is even close to the English in terms of technique. Saying English players have better technique than American players shouldn't be that controversial. At the same time, the difference between Spanish and English players might be greater ...

[quote]they need a full-on culture change, not just a new coach. which I just can't really see happening. [/quote] So do we if we are being completely honest. Hence why we should reserve the same skepticism for our team as well. And in England they are spending way more on youth. They have ...

[quote]England is A LOT closer, but they're near their full potential.[/quote] I disagree. Tactically they are in the stone age. They could improve quite a bit just by trying to play the best side rather than fit every English player who plays for a top 6 club into the team. ...

re: Which country wins a World Cup next...USA or England? - crazy4lsu
Most definitely England. The US is far behind England technically. England is a coherent coach away from being a top side. The English problem is one of mentality rather than technique, although the English are deficient of technique when compared to continental players, although I think that gap is...

re: Why is Jurgen bullet proof? - crazy4lsu
[quote]After we put 6 on the board against Cuba? [/quote] I can't believe anyone uses this as support. Amazing. Jesus fricking Christ. I didn't like the hire all that much in 2011, and I don't like it now. It will take a player mutiny for Klinsmann to leave at this point with how far Gulati i...

re: How is this not a fireable offense? - crazy4lsu
I honestly think his whole tenure has been a clusterfrick that he's been able to spin around as "experimenting." I can accept a loss as bad luck if the process in place is seemingly coherent. But nothing Klinsmann seems to do makes any long term sense. If he wanted a young defense to gel over a tourn...

re: Russia Is Better Than the US - crazy4lsu
[quote]Arshavin was shamed throughout Russia for saying their failures weren't his problem. Stripped of the captaincy in fact. [/quote] They weren't his fault. For 18 months or so Arshavin played out of his mind. That Russian team should have qualified as well. Lots of good players. ...

[quote]Dzagoev[/quote] Great player who should have moved six years ago. [quote]Konoplyanka[/quote] Same for him, but he doesn't have near the profile. It's not like there was another Sanchez on the market. It's fairly bare for the most part. ...

re: 2015/2016 Transfer Discussion - crazy4lsu
Draxler is a way bigger risk than Sterling. Has been injured more, has scored less league goals than Sterling in about 25 more games, hasn't been moved around as much as Sterling, and hasn't had a standout year other than when he was 19. And he'd easily cost in the high 20's and 30's. He's another p...
