re: I need some advice, looking for a soccer game to attend in Italy - wm72
Lazio has a group of Ultras who are very right wing and it's fair criticism to say Lazio's owners have taken the Trump route of criticizing them. However, the vast majority of any tams fans are realm just regular people if you're just planning on going to a match. ...

re: I need some advice, looking for a soccer game to attend in Italy - wm72
Just looking at the fixtures, Genoa v Fiorentina looks good. The stadium is cool, Genova is an interesting, picturesque city and their fans are among the more loyal and vocal. Otherwise, the home fixtures at Sassuolo or Udinese could be fun for smaller teams /stadiums. If you're in Rome, L...

re: Are Bama fans full of shite with their Iron Bowl pessimism? - wm72
[quote]You didn't watch the game... Mississippi State controlled the game and ran the clock down on every play. State could have scored more, but their defense isn't great so they figured there best shot was to shorten the game. State had a 3:1 advantage in TOP.[/quote] State certainly controll...

re: Imagine The Chaos If We Get This Scenario - wm72
[quote]It's more complicated if Clemson is 12-1 Wisconsin is 13-0 and OU is 12-1[/quote] Yeah, I agree. The most difficult scenario for the committee involves 12-1 Georgia with a win at 11-1 ND and only a close loss to #1 Alabama. That's the one which will require them to contradict ...

re: Fox Sports - Alabama actively plans an "atrocious schedule" and gets away with it - wm72

re: Hiring Unproven Coaches - wm72
Agree that the main reason UF and UGA can't just go out an easily hire a proven, championship caliber coach is that there are so few. However, I do think the OP hits on a good point when you consider that, just for one example, Frost is likely much more coveted over Mullen on both AD and fan...

re: The word "resume" in college football - wm72
One thing I have noticed about arguments over which teams have the best "resumes" is that opinion is decidedly more divided than arguments over which teams pass the much maligned "eye test" by simply having looked dominant when people watch their actual games. People seem to hate it but ironical...

re: Playoff Committee's Bill Hancock "Our charge is to pick the four best teams" - wm72
[quote]Ohio State had one of the best resumes ever. Let alone in 2016[/quote] Yeah, a big irony one notices in reading through all the opinions you see posted here is that posters seem much more agreed on the "eye test" than on "resumes". Posters usually agree to a large extent on the "bes...

re: Can someone explain to me why our youth system is bad? - wm72
dsides and Bill Parker: Thanks for all the really interesting posts. It's nice to get the perspective of parents with kids actually going through the US youth systems. [quote]The thing is in America you have more options. In other countries, not so much. They see soccer as their only ...

re: Can someone explain to me why our youth system is bad? - wm72
[quote]This is the problem. People don't seem to understand how hard it is to produce athletic, technical players. They don't seem to realize that you are more likely to end up with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (or much, much worse) rather than Thierry Henry. [/quote] Yea, and Oxlade-Chamberlain is...

re: Can someone explain to me why our youth system is bad? - wm72
[quote]. If technical skills aren't reinforced, as they often aren't, even in European systems, then most of the time athleticism is wasted. I wish people could see this. [/quote] This is the point that I think a lot of people who actually do watch a lot of soccer seem to overlook. I used...

[quote]Thrilling game, though. Chelsea didn't really deserve to win based on the run of play.[/quote] Yeah, a draw was really a fair result for how the match played out. Roma --likely not that confident of defending against continued Chelsea possession without De Rossi and Manolas-- did a...

re: Match Day 10/18 - UCL Match Day 3 - wm72
[quote]What a frickin. Match [/quote] Irony is that the follow up may not be as wide open if Kante and De Rossi are back, though Manolas will still be out and that alone makes for too much excitement. Roma missed a big chance today though to build an almost insurmountable lead over Atletico...

re: Match Day 10/18 - UCL Match Day 3 - wm72
[quote]Fazio at least can say he assisted the first Dzeko goal.[/quote] Fazio is an exceptional passer, that pass to Dzeko is pretty normal stuff from him. He's best in Bonucci type regista role in a 3 man backline since he wins every header as well. Not great in a pressing 4-3-3, especially ...

re: Match Day 10/18 - UCL Match Day 3 - wm72
[quote]Good lord Roma's back line is horrible [/quote] Manolas may not be Roma's best player but he's the most valuable. He's the only CB we have that can snuff out all the inevitable counters from Di Francesco's attacking style. . Fazio is really good passer but a lot more suited to the t...
