re: Has the Columbus Crew been saved? - Michael Stein
I expected news to come on this very soon. Since July, I’ve thought this was the likely outcome. I’m surprised the Browns and the Haslam family are involved. I had not heard anything about that, and I’ve paid close attention to all Crew news over the past few months. The more money in this new group...

re: USMNT vs Columbia, FS1, 7? CT - Michael Stein
I hope George Bello from Atlanta develops into a great player on the left side. Could end up being a great winger or left back. We were badly lacking there today, and Colombia kept attacking that weakness....

re: USMNT vs Columbia, FS1, 7? CT - Michael Stein
Man, they keep torching the left side of our defense, just like Brazil did. We have to get that figured out. Robinson has talent, but he needs to improve to be more reliable....

re: USMNT vs Columbia, FS1, 7? CT - Michael Stein
I really hope when we play games like this on US soil a generation from now, the crowd isn’t 90% supportive of our opponents. It’s up to US Soccer to make that happen or we’ll continue to be the visiting team in our own country whenever we’re playing teams that aren’t CONCACAF minnows. People wi...

Our runs in this half are already much better. More aggressive. Good halftime adjustments....

re: USMNT vs Columbia, FS1, 7? CT - Michael Stein
The thought of Tim Weah playing with Adams, Pulisic, and McKennie for many years makes me happy. They could do special things in our midfield. Hopefully Gio Reyna and some other kids develop to join that mix....

re: MLS expansion - Michael Stein
Very happy to see St. Louis back in the mix. Seems like a very solid stadium plan with pre-approval from the important gov’t officials and no need for a public vote. MLS desperately wants a team here. They are 100% in IMO, if they finalize that stadium plan. I think Phoenix will win the other bid...

re: USMNT vs Mehico, ESPN, 8:00PM CT - Michael Stein
Yes. Even though the Mexican player clearly had no intent to hurt Trapp, that’s a red card 100%. He lunged over the ball with his studs up with a good amount of momentum behind him. Those kind of tackles can end careers. Referee has to send him off for all the players’ safety. Luckily Trapp is O...

re: Sigi Schmid resigns - Michael Stein
The team has been a complete mess since Robbie Keane and Bruce left. I think Bruce would consider coming back, but not under the current front office (Klein, Venegas, etc). Those guys would all have to be fired. They forced him to sign Stevie G and the dos Santos brothers against his better judgm...

re: Young Players Tracker and Americans Abroad Thread - Michael Stein
Llanez has been a great youth player for a while now. Pretty sure he’s eligible for Mexico, but he seems 100% committed to the US. Only a matter of time before he gets a move to Europe....

re: Tampa Bay 48 @ New Orleans 40 Final - FOX - Michael Stein
The entire defense should give back their game checks for today. This is ridiculous. We’re making Ryan Fitzpatrick look like a hybrid of Tom Brady and Michael Vick....

re: MLS coach will probably be USMNT coach - Michael Stein
Oh, I share your optimism about our player pool. I think our last generation of veterans aged out at just the wrong time and some of our worst crops of youth prospects in the modern era of US Soccer were unable to pick up the slack. I think the failure last cycle makes a lot of people think our curr...

re: MLS coach will probably be USMNT coach - Michael Stein
I expect it to be a current MLS coach, but you never know, Earnie might surprise us with a Dutch coach. The Dutch learn English as a second language is school, so that shouldn’t be a problem for any Dutch candidates. US Soccer fans need to be realistic about the type of coach we can attract given...

re: MLS coach will probably be USMNT coach - Michael Stein
My money is on Gregg Berhalter. I think it will happen regardless of the messy Columbus situation, but the Crew potentially not playing in Columbus next year would also be a factor. I don’t think he would want to move to Austin with the team, should that happen. He has a good coaching record, and kn...

re: Harry Potter's most powerful moments - Michael Stein
So many powerful moments have already been mentioned, but I’ll add a few of my own. I think all of the Pensieve sequences were very well done in the films. The Igor Karkaroff trial in Goblet of Fire, Tom Riddle flashback in Half-Blood Prince, and the Snape flashback in Deathly Hallows were all ch...

re: FC Dallas - Michael Stein
Is the stadium nicer after the Hall of Fame renovations? It looks great on TV. Dallas might not get great attendance, but with the insane rate Frisco is growing, I think they’ll start drawing 20K regularly at some point in the next few years. Just market the hell out of being “Frisco’s team” if t...

re: Clint Dempsey retires - Michael Stein
Not surprised. You could tell watching him this year that his body is starting to break down. Only one goal from 39 shots. Probably a good idea to call it quits with his heart problems instead of forcing it. Cheers to a great career. ...

re: MLS to Austin looks like it’s happening - Michael Stein
I’m very surprised the vote passed today. I watched the whole boring 5 hours today and all of the meeting last Thursday. Heading into today, it seemed likely to fail, but 3 or 4 of the undecideds who were leaning no swtiched to supporting it. Precourt himself never spoke even once. Very different fr...
