That is likely true.

I apologize to all for my remarks. I was out of sorts and snarky yesterday.

Even if what I said was true, what business is it of mine.

Again, my apologies.

International soccer could die and I wouldn't lose any sleep.

re: A Question About Soccer Fandom
"Does anyone else have this in common with me? A dude without a club that really just loves watching the game played well?"
i'm like this. I follow and root for teams that USMNT play on. I follow the Bundesliga and EPL Europa league and Champions league. I root for underdogs. I find the Europa league to be funner to watch because it has a lot of non-rich clubs. I root for Chicago Fire because it is the only MLS game i have been to with my family and was a lot of fun. they played the timber. never lived in a town with a team so never had a favorite. knowing USMNT isn't going doesn't deter me. I listened to the liverpool/tottenham game this morning and enjoyed a great game. its nice enjoying the game for the game sake and not stressing over losing more than every 4 yeras.

For me, it’s how club soccer has to restart and gets into an enjoyable pace, and then International Soccer kills that momentum for two-three weeks.

It’s like Hanukkah. It’s beautiful, but it’s shite compared to other options that time of year.

re: A Question About Soccer Fandom
I love the club level, particularly the EPL. I played soccer in high school and started out as more of a “which player do I want to watch” type of fan (huge Henry and Gerrard fan) but ultimately gave my support to Liverpool in the early 2000s at soccer camp, the summer before my freshman year of high school. Looking back, I could have saved myself some heartache but it’s ok. It’s like they are stuck in the “mike years” of Alabama football. At the same time I’ve also seen a couple domestic and European titles and Hopefully Klopp can raise that sleeping giant.

re: A Question About Soccer Fandom
Just so I’m clear and don’t misrepresent what I was trying to say - I prefer club > country by a mile. My point was I don’t have any teams I truly love. I just love to watch the best clubs play the game with no real vested interest in the result. And like I said, those teams vary season to season

As a matter of fact, I don’t keep up with the international game at all except for reading tidbits here and there about how are boys are doing for their respective club teams. I can’t stand international breaks. Same for FA Cup weekends. International breaks seem to do more harm than good, especially because of the frequency of them these days. And most domestic cups seem like relics of the past to me and IMO should be modified or done away with entirely.

if anything domestic cups have gotten better bc we are in the age of only a couple clubs even having a remote chance at winning the league. Clubs in Europe taken them more serious.

Ditching them is absolute madness and would never happen. Only way to modify them to make them better is to put a champions league spot for the winner.

Like I said, I don't care much about the domestic cups. The league is vastly more important.

well you have not won the league in over 20 years

and no trophies since 2012. You can't be picky

domestic cups a very important esp when you have no chance at winning the league.

winning breads more winning and gives you and your players something to build on. That and players like winning things, hence why Can is leaving Liverpool for Juve.

So that means we should stop trying? Bull shite.

Again, bull shite. Don't jeopardize your ultimate goal for something that doesn't mean as much just for the sake of putting something in a trophy case.

You think he's leaving because we can't win the FA Cup?

no it means to compete on all fronts and when the league is out of sight you try for a cup

Top 4 is still way more important than the FA Cup.

now you are moving the goal post.


But even then would you rather get top four and win a domestic cup, or get top four and no cup......

I'd ensure our placement in the top 4 before even considering the domestic cup. If we had a 12 point lead on 5th or 4th place, sure, let's go for it. If we have a 2 point lead on 5th and have depth issues, then no, I'm not risking anyone for the FA Cup.
