re: 2018 WC Seeding - thenry712
Switzerland Peru (Low probability of qualifying) USA South Korea Probably my preferred group. I wouldn't want to play a host country, even if Russia is pretty lousy right now. Peru probably isn't going to qualify, and I'd like our chances against them, versus against a team like Wales. Sout...

re: 2018 WC Seeding - thenry712
If Wales manages to qualify and get in Pot 1 or 2, their federation deserves an award for gaming the system by not scheduling friendlies which artificially boosted their FIFA ranking. ETA: I'm glad FIFA is changing this system. The old system punished CONCACAF and the Asian teams who couldn't dra...

re: Jozy Altidore and the MNT - thenry712
Just for research sake I looked up Jozy's goalscoring record compared to other marquee strikers: Jozy: 39 goals in 108 caps, a goal every 2.76 games. Thomas Mueller: 37 in 87, 2.35 Lionel Messi, 58 in 120, 2.06 Wayne Rooney: 53 in 119, 2.2 Cristiano: 78 in 145, 1.86 Before the bu...

re: A few thoughts from today's draw - thenry712
I can't fathom how Arena rates Zusi higher than Eric Lichaj, other than one error Lichaj made in the Gold Cup that led to a goal. Also, again Fabian Johnson should probably just play in defense if Yedlin isn't healthy....

re: A few thoughts from today's draw - thenry712
[quote]We really need some breakout central midfielders to help us this year. Acosta is unconvincing in his positioning, and I still don't get how midfielders playing in a midfield two can't figure out that both have to support each other. I see it at the club level and it doesn't make any sense. [...

A few thoughts from today's draw - thenry712
Squad Rotation: Arena seems to prefer to rotate his lineup after every game. He did this during the Gold Cup, and has done it several times during qualifying. I'm not sure, it's the right move for continuity's sake. I understand the environmental conditions that need to be taken into account for som...

re: USA v Panama in Orlando. Why?? - thenry712
The main reason they schedule an unreasonable amount of games in Florida is that the team can easily travel to the Caribbean without too much travel time, and change in environments. That's it. Sunil Gulati has said as much in interviews. It's a garbage reason. No other confederation does that. ...

re: USA v Panama in Orlando. Why?? - thenry712
Orlando should have a pro-US crowd. They have a massive AO chapter. It's bull shite that Portland and/or Seattle didn't get to host a qualifier. Sunil Gulati is incompetent....

re: Rooney announces international retirement - thenry712
Again, there's this pressure on England to play forward-thinking football. It's not dissimilar to Brazil's recent identity crisis. Right now, England just doesn't have that kind of personnel. They've been burned by Jack Wilshere's health and not knowing how to best utilize Rooney in the last years o...

re: Rooney announces international retirement - thenry712
[quote]Thank you for your service. Time to pass the reigns to Kane. [/quote] For awhile, I've felt like the English should pivot to a more pragmatic brand of counterattacking football. They have two great goal poachers in Vardy and Kane, and some talented fullbacks and wingers capable of beatin...

[quote]Tommy Smyth[/quote] Probably the worst thing about ESPN's soccer coverage. He's kind of like the Chris Berman of soccer. He was hired by ESPN 25 years ago, so, regardless of his generic hokey schtick, ESPN won't fire him. His brief cameos on ESPN's national sports programming are awful....
