re: US Soccer announces changes to improve oversight/accountability - Michael Stein
Definitely a step in the right direction. Our scouting system needs significant overhaul, as well. So much talent slips through the cracks....

re: 2018 Atlanta United FC Season-Long Thread - Michael Stein
Barco looked pretty dangerous in his 25 minutes. Excited to see what he can do in a full match. He’s gonna torch a lot of the right backs in this league....

re: France to vote for Morocco over US led bid - Michael Stein
True, but Qatar is already behind schedule and over budget, despite being 8 years into the process. They’re not gonna deliver on any of the crazy shite they promised. I doubt an effort by Morocco would be any less of a logistical mess, but at least they probably wouldn’t use slave labor to build t...

re: France to vote for Morocco over US led bid - Michael Stein
Excellent. That is big news, indeed. I could have gotten behind the prospect of Morocco to win the 2010 bid when it was still 32-teams and Africa had never hosted before. But the thought of them hosting a 48-team World Cup and having to build all that infrastructure when the United bid is a slam ...

re: No other Matchday 4/10 thread? - Michael Stein
I really think so. This Toronto team is without question the best MLS team ever. Winning CCL for the first time would make them MLS legends forever. It would be a shame if they tripped at the final hurdle, since Chivas is the weakest of the 3 Mexican teams. Club America wasn’t very impressive. Tigre...

re: My unwanted opinion on Alanta United and MLS - Michael Stein
He’s done pretty well so far, but got exposed pretty bad against Atlanta. I think he’ll be a fine MLS player in the long-term, but I’m not sure you want to rely on a rookie at left back as an expansion team. He’s good, but there will be a steep learning curve....

re: My unwanted opinion on Alanta United and MLS - Michael Stein
I agree with you that Atlanta United and LAFC are both model organizations with bright futures. Atlanta gives the South a big team and LAFC gives our biggest soccer city a stable second franchise. (Chivas USA became a complete shitshow and embarrassment to the league under Jorge Vergara’s ownership....

Good. Dallas is great at youth development. I know Houston and Chicago have affiliate clubs in the New Orleans area, but nothing too substantial....

re: Young Players Tracker and Americans Abroad Thread - Michael Stein
I’m just happy we’ve gotten to the point where we have young kids breaking through the first team at clubs like PSG, Dortmund, and Schalke. Some will pan out, some won’t, but at least we’re making progress. And yeah, I think Sargent is the real deal. His skill set is very polished already. ...

re: Match day 4/2 Champion(ship) League and other mildly entertaining matches - Michael Stein
Toronto leads 2-1 at half. I think they have to win tonight to have any shot at advancing, especially having conceded an away goal. Azteca is a brutal place to play. I know Montreal somehow got a draw there 3 years ago, but you can’t count on that....

re: Young Players Tracker and Americans Abroad Thread - Michael Stein
I’m really hoping Sargent and/or Tim Weah pan out. We desperately need depth at the forward position. Altidore and Wood are good, but very streaky goalscorers who are prone to long droughts....

re: Pardew sacked after 8 straight defeats - Michael Stein
Yeah, it’s kind of like NFL coaching, once you make it into the brotherhood, you’re set for life. Doesn’t matter how bad you were at your previous stops. There’s only one Big Sam to go around. West Brom is definitely getting promoted, it’s just a question of which two teams will join them....
