Thanks for posting this. Definitely gonna read the rest of the book when I get the chance. [quote]...Manel Estiarte in a previous life had been the best water polo player of all time. Only the second man in history capable of walking on water.[/quote] Second, after Andrea Pirlo himself, right?...

I think a rope-a-dope, defensive and counterattacking style can be fun to watch personally, as long as they actually counterattack and don't just sit in their own box. ...

re: With NYCFC and Atlanta joining into the MLS, what teams will have the top - svb
As for the top spenders, imo it will be: NYRB NYCFC LAG Miami (when they join) Toronto Seattle Atlanta, Portland, Sporting KC, Orlando City (hoping they sign Kaka) and a few others in the next tier if you ask me. Don't know how much Blank will be willing to spend as of yet, hopefully he i...

[quote]Very true. But good defense only address the back line. What's the excuse for the midfield and the attack? [/quote] I wouldn't say it only addresses the back line, with a lot of solid defensive players all over the pitch. But I do agree we have had problems scoring in some games, specifical...

MLS Survivor - Week 4 - svb
Sorry I missed the last 2 weeks. Back this week though. Pick a team once in the competition. Home wins, away wins, and away draws move you on to the next round. Away losses, home losses, and home draws knock you out. Can make picks up until the day of the game, so picks for Saturday games mus...

re: American U-18 player signs with Atleti - svb
This U18 cycle really is impressive. It will be interesting to see if some can make the jump to the U20s before the U20 WC rolls around or if any establish themselves with the senior side by 2018. A couple will be with the U20s at the Dallas Cup. ...

Most everyone impressed me in the first half. I have been critical of Deuce lately but I thought he played fairly well, also. Zusi did whatever was needed, Besler was rock solid, Beckerman wasn't bad. Brad Davis didn't do much for me. I liked what I saw from Green and Edu as subs and Landy showe...

re: David Beckham wants to scrap MLS salary cap - svb
[quote]At a certain point having too many DPs just deepens the big gap between an MLS star and then 23rd man on the bench. This is why MLS teams typically get throttled in the CONCACAF Champions League because there's a enormous gap between starting Robbie Keane or even someone like Will Johnson and...
