re: Random thoughts from a new soccer fan... - crazy4lsu
Fox's coverage is getting better but it was horrible for many years. I will always appreciate Fox for Fox Sports World but their presentation is not up to NBC's standard. NBC makes the games so easy to get into. The EPL isn't the best league anymore but its an easy league to follow. ...

re: Arsenal 2015/2016 Season Long Thread - crazy4lsu
Outside of striker the pieces are all there. It'd be nice to have more power from midfield, but the team is incredibly good at playing between the lines. The finishing is the problem and that can be a confidence issue. The defensive spacing, particularly the combo of Gab-Kos, is excellent and could ...

re: Match Day 8/30 - crazy4lsu
Play safe passes for the most part. The passing is slow and ponderous, and the way they play is predictable. They have no way of playing through midfield consistently. Yet they had chances but Rooney again was ponderous and should have done way better. ...

re: Match Day 8/30 - crazy4lsu
Memphis will be good but Sterling's movement without the ball is very good. Memphis is a high risk, high reward player, but he doesn't have the intelligence on the ball yet to use it effectively. It'd also help if LVG had a coherent philosophy as right now their philosophy is to pass the ball betwee...

re: Arsenal 2015/2016 Season Long Thread - crazy4lsu
[quote]Are we sure?[/quote] Many of Coquelin's passes move left to right, even if they are forward. Even his long balls are generally moving the ball from one flank to the other. What I'm talking about is a particular the ability to pick tight passes, which Mertesacker can't do, nor can Coquelin,...

re: Arsenal 2015/2016 Season Long Thread - crazy4lsu
The basic problem is this. Ramsey has to improve his short range passing in such a way that he can make the first station pass between the lines, something he really doesn't attempt all that much, instead of him being on the receiving end of that short range pass from Cazorla. Coquelin can't make th...

re: Arsenal 2015/2016 Season Long Thread - crazy4lsu
It's hard to drop Coq after a performance like that. He played incredibly well. Chambers was god awful. No clue what he was doing. Maybe drop Santi, but he combines so well with everyone. We need a player who is like Santi and Coq combined, and there are not that many of those types of players i...

re: Match Day.. Banks Street Derby.. NBCSN 2:00pm CST - crazy4lsu
3 or 4 chances were created simply by insisting on creating from the back. The Benteke chance with the brilliant Cech save was one. The Coutinho chance came from good buildup play from the back, but was from a cross that was too high for Benteke. Chambers has been really bad. Like the worst I've see...

re: Gedion Zelalem - thoughts on his loan to Rangers (currently a second division... - crazy4lsu
Zelalem is going to be brought along slowly. The loan is only to January. Like I said, he needs gametime. The level is not so important as much as just playing. A MLS loan would not work because the season is nearly over. Zelalem also chose to go to Rangers as he had other offers. Maybe the Rangers ...

re: Gedion Zelalem - thoughts on his loan to Rangers (currently a second division... - crazy4lsu
I'm baffled as to why anyone can see it as a bad thing. He's 18, he has less than 90 minutes of experience at the top level, and this is an easy way to get him games, which he desperately needs. If he rides the bench then we can say it is a poor loan, but as long as he gets games then it should be f...

re: Young Players Tracker and Americans Abroad Thread - crazy4lsu
It'd be an odd place to put him in the shop window. From the way we've seen Winger handle youth prospects before, it's much more likely that this is about acclimating Zelalem to British football. Both of our other 16 year old prodigies in Fab and Wilshere spent a good portion of their early twenties...
