re: Gold Cup 2019 - Michael Stein
With no VAR, he might as well. :lol: That goal right there is why I hate the practice of zonal marking in the box on set pieces (aside from putting a man on each post). You just let the attacking players get forward momentum and it’s tough to pick them up once they’re moving around like that. It’...

I think Pugh is cute, too. If we can get her and Pulisic together, our national teams will be stacked 25 years from now....

re: 2019 U20 World Cup Thread - Michael Stein
We’ve been knocking on the door for a while at the U20 level. We’re due for a deep run soon if our talent development continues to improve at that level. This US team all plays professionally, and I think that’ll be par for the course in the future....

re: Confirmed: Tyler Adams OUT of GC - Michael Stein
[quote]How far back do we have to go to find a worse Gold Cup roster?[/quote] 2009 team was definitely worse than this one. We sent a B/C team of low-level MLS guys because our A team was in the Confederations Cup. They got slaughtered by Mexico in the final....

re: COPA America - Michael Stein
CONCACAF and CONMEBOL will never combine for World Cup qualification, nor should they. That would be a logistical nightmare for everyone. And the smaller Caribbean and Central American countries wouldn’t agree to that, and they hold most of the power in CONCACAF. It’s not gonna happen. However, w...

I'll help get this thread back on track with more babes from our women's team. Here's Mallory Pugh. [img]https://images1.westword.com/imager/u/original/8173959/mallory.pugh.twitter.jpg[/img] [img]https://www.soccer.com/wcm/connect/6ad93187-82e0-4b4c-a4f5-1a2c247ae9d8/1/pugh-1.jpg?MOD=AJPERES&CA...

re: Young Players Tracker and Americans Abroad Thread - Michael Stein
Yeah. I think going to Lille is a perfect fit for him. He’ll get to play at a high level, and he’ll get way more minutes there than he would at PSG. Just what he and the USMNT needs. ...

re: Confirmed: Tyler Adams OUT of GC - Michael Stein
I like that lineup, cwill. From this group we have, I would put Nick Lima at left back position (he can play either side, and that’s where he usually plays for San Jose). But I have a suspicion Berhalter will play Tim Ream there. Won’t be surprised if he abandons the hybrid right back/midfield...

re: Confirmed: Tyler Adams OUT of GC - Michael Stein
Welp. In the last 7 days, my excitement for the Gold Cup has gone from a 7 to a 1. It’s so frustrating that McKennie, Pulisic, and Adams are never healthy at the same time. They’re gonna be the core of our team for a while, and they haven’t had much opportunity to build any chemistry together....

I can empathize with the crying Thai kid. That’s what I felt like watching the USMNT misplay 5-yard square passes against Jamaica. Today was fun, though. :USA:...

re: tOfficial 2019 Women's World Cup Thread - Michael Stein
Well guys, I think we have a good women’s team. :lol: I still think we’re the favorites, even with France playing at home. Our best is better than what anyone else can match. They just have to peak when it counts. Today is a great start....

re: tOfficial 2019 Women's World Cup Thread - Michael Stein
I don’t know much about Thai culture, but it seems names there are chosen by randomly combining combinations of letters. No wonder South Asian kids dominate spelling bees. I hope they bring Carli on for Rapinoe, as well. Get her some goals. I’ve always found her hot in a “girl next door” kind of ...

That’s 100% a penalty. She was in on goal and got pulled down from behind. Thailand is awful, but we’re playing well. I think we’ll get 7 goals by the end....

Wow. This kinda came out of nowhere. I’ll definitely go out and support the team. Hopefully NISA can get their act together under the new leadership. Their original group had no idea how to organize and run a professional league....

re: Berhalter Is A Clown - Michael Stein
I’ve gotten to the point where I just feel nothing watching the USMNT. Little excitement or anger. Just apathy. That’s all they deserve from fans right now. Our three best players are 20, because our lost generation was complete trash, and we are in all-out rebuild mode getting smacked around by a b...

re: United States of F#ck Yeah v. Sanka ya dead | Friendly | 6pm CT (FS1) - Michael Stein
The drop off is especially noticeable in the midfield. I think that’s where the “lost generation” hit us the hardest. When you look at our player pool ages 24-29, it’s pretty amazing how bad that crop of domestic-produced midfielders is. Once the Donovan-Dempsey-Beasley generation aged out, our midf...
