re: Reflecting on USMNT's Copa Showing (WARNING: Wall of text) - Tiger Phil
Agreed. But it is the truth. The Senior National Team Coach can only select from the players he is provided. The National Soccer staff can only scout the players that are playing. The true job of developing players fall on the local coaches. We must work to grow the culture of soccer on the p...

re: Reflecting on USMNT's Copa Showing (WARNING: Wall of text) - Tiger Phil
[quote]Also, I completely agree with the comment about technical players. I actually had that conversation with a soccer noob friend the other day. The problem with that, IMO, is you can't just go out a find technical players. So, the USA has a shift in training for youth (which seems to have begun)...

re: Reflecting on USMNT's Copa Showing (WARNING: Wall of text) - Tiger Phil
The problem is that we need players who are better technically. Its likely too late for the current players to become better, so we wait for their replacements. In the meantime, we go about building better players through our youth system. Of course, our youth system is a complex web of issues o...

re: Guzan is awful. - Tiger Phil
Guzan has been very good all tournament. None of the goals last night were on him. 1st - Lavezzi got behind for free. Watch as we send two to the ball. Granted it was Messi, but sending 2 to the ball let him slip in behind. It was a clever flicked header which you don't always see. Guzan pro...

re: Positives from Last Nights Game - Tiger Phil
[quote]Missing 3 starters does not excuse poor execution of basic passes and trapping.[/quote] Exactly. It was tactical fear from the manager as we saw against Belgium, but individual technical fear that lowered confidence, which destroyed first touch, passing and movement....

re: Cant blame jurgy for this one - Tiger Phil
I think putting Wondolowski and Beckerman in the XI was a mistake. Regardless, the players on the pitch played poorly. Our passes were slow, our touches were bad and our movement was stagnant. Everyone played poorly, and that exacerbated the technical gap. So yeah, we need to get better player...

re: Things to look for from a non-soccer guy tonight - Tiger Phil
The extreme of this is how we played against Belgium in the last World Cup. We had 9 field players behind the ball at all times, sometimes 10 and even when we won the ball we could only clear it forward - no chance of real meaningful possession. We have to defend first - keep players behind the ba...

re: What does the soccer board think about the Chile/Bolivia handball? - Tiger Phil
Both handball calls (US-Colombia & Chile-Bolivia) were the correct calls. In both cases, the player made himself bigger with the arm/hand. Whether or not either was a "natural position", they're both penalties....

re: USA Today article about Miles' contract - Tiger Phil
Interesting article. To sum up, since the OP failed to do so: 1) LSU will owe Miles $11M, not $15M, as the buyout amount is reduced by how much he has received this year. 2) The payments will be spread about over the course of 8 years. 3) Miles must make a "good faith effort" to find suitable ...

re: bama got there bag man to the sec office - Tiger Phil
[quote]Look closely at the 3rd video right above your post. JFC... Jones touches the ball out of bounds. I just don't understand why so many fans can't let this go. It was clearly the right call. Ruling on the field, incomplete pass. They reviewed it. Please move on . [/quote] When ...
