I'm pretty disappointed too. Seemed like it was on life support from the get go almost.
Learning experience - I'll be up for a league next year - or even starting January 1. But we'll nee clear dividing lines on responsibilities, and probably splitting some things up would help. One person cre...

Saw an argument on this at the A&M game. Some "bad@$$" refused to sit down and talked all tough. He was standing in front of an old lady who couldn't see around him.
When the cop showed up, the dude still refused to sit down. Everyone around him pointed to the cop and said " you see the badg...

Looked like a hammmie for Stevie G, right?
Hope thats just a week or two max and that he'll be back by X-mas. We'll need him.
I definitely thought Allen played well and am glad we are giving him shots. My main concern will be when we face a side that is not offensively challenged and can ...
| Soccer Board|| re: World Cup draw is TODAY 10:30 AM Central, ESPN2 - Tigerstark on 12/7/13 at 10:06 am|
The thing with this draw is that we didn't get three or so worst/lesser teams in any of the pots.
I would much rather Portugal than France, Italy, Netherlands, etc.
Obviously we believe we got the toughest or second toughest African team.
Germany is one of the four favorites for the title....

I won't be able to sleep tonight picturing Ronaldo, Mueller, Nani, Lahm, Kroos, Gotze et al going against Beasley, a 70 year old Cherundelo, or Evans on the outside. I will pray for Jurgy to put FAbian at LB for those games, and I guess Cameron at RB unless a better options presents itself.

No, thats not it at all - I don't want them to move it to US prime time - I want them to operate as they normally do, which is put the games in the host country's prime time.
This would make it much closer to ...
| Soccer Board|| re: So let me get this straight, FIFA is moving the Qatar World Cup because of heat - Tigerstark on 12/5/13 at 9:45 am|
I think the time zones in the eastern part of the country, where the majority of the games are, is ahead of the US. But the western half is equal with the US eastern? Maybe I'm remembering wrong. Still, a 5 or 6pm kickoff in the US would be a lot better than noon or 1pm.
As for the weather...

Thinking back on this game, does anyone else feel like Toure and Skyrtel had more time on the ball than Suarez? I just feel like we were content kicking it around and had absolutely no one that wanted to penetrate and attack and force the issue.
Missing Daniel and Cou (for most of the match) see...

This was the Liverpool of last year. Just one match, we making up the points lost will be difficult, and it looks like December will be a much tougher month than we originally thought.
Clearly we missed a lot on offense, but Moses shot/nic...
| Soccer Board|| re: Most Immediately Impactful EPL Transfer in Last Four Years? - Tigerstark on 12/1/13 at 9:43 am|
I'm not sure RVP should count in this - imo, its a completely different situation when you come in from another EPL side rather than outside the EPL.
So many guys take awhile before they start really firing on all cylinders in the EPL.
What Aguero and Ozil have done is incredible, imo.

Yes, we know Welter is a liability physically. Heck, just look at the first play of scrimmage from the A&M game. He meets the ball carrier at the LOS and is pushed back 3.5 yards making the tackle.
We know that when Louis comes in, he makes some plays.
This makes us think Louis is better t...

They were doing some yell thing, which started before the moment of silence was announced. Doubt they heard the moment of silence being announced, and once they quieted down, they were silent.

I can't remember and Liverpool this hard hit with injuries (and maybe a suspsension) to key players.
This was one reason I was not completely on board with the Borini loan.

We are completely f@#$ because we are the best team in pod 2, except Japan maybe close.
Therefore, we are from the weak pod, and any group with us in it is most statistically likely to be the group of death.
Our only shot to not be in a killer group is to get matched with Switzerland and/or th...
