re: 1,834 Days - Pulisic piece on The Player’s Tribune - mynamebowl
[quote]He wasn't even a regular starter[/quote] Yes he was. I’m talking about when Jurgen originally named him captain after the last WC. He was in his physical prime and the best player we had at the time. I don’t remember the exact circumstances that led to Bradley being handed the armband,...

re: 1,834 Days - Pulisic piece on The Player’s Tribune - mynamebowl
[quote]Deuce has even said it himself when Jurgen gave him the armband that he never though of himself as a captain[/quote] Then who? You guys prefer Bradley over Deuce? Whether he liked it or not and regardless of who was wearing the armband, Dempsey was the best, most important player we had (o...

re: 1,834 Days - Pulisic piece on The Player’s Tribune - mynamebowl
[quote]That's an attitude Bradley could never comprehend, and the attitude the team needs.[/quote] Agreed. I love this kid. Sorry for the hijack here, but... Dempsey should have been the full time captain all along. Bradley has been a good player for us and has even come up big in a couple...

re: I know now why USA soccer sucks IRT the rest of the world - mynamebowl
There’s flaws in your argument. But you make some valid points. The problem is and always has been that America doesn’t value success in soccer as much as football, basketball, or baseball. At all levels of playing and coaching, and everything else. It’s a cultural thing. Times they are a changing t...

re: Neymar is a naughty boy - r/soccer - mynamebowl
[quote]Sergio Ramos[/quote] [quote]Thank you for your service you crazy bastard[/quote] His red card issues have always confused me. He doesn’t seem like a douche. Or that guy that other players, refs, teammates all kind of can’t stand (Neymar seems that way to me). Can someone explain what the ...

re: Can someone explain to me why our youth system is bad? - mynamebowl
[quote]I agree 100% with your comments. And I feel developing skills is extremely important more so than any other sport. You can learn to run better routes or catch better way easier than you can learn soccer skills. My whole intention here wasn't to downplay skills or say they arent the most impor...

re: Jermaine Jones rips Captain Fatass for not going to the Bundesliga on Instagram Live - mynamebowl
Jermaine gave the USMNT everything he had and sadly didn’t get the love or appreciation he deserved until his national team days were over. More importantly, he’s spot on in his comments and exactly right. His voice and his opinions should always be heard. He’s a smart dude and it really took some b...

re: Jack Warner: Happiest Day of My Life - mynamebowl
[quote]The FBI should not have gotten involved in this. They were just butthurt about not getting the right to host one of the world cups.[/quote] Ok so you’re saying the reason the FBI spent years building a significant enough case in order to bust all the CONCACAF crooks is because they were bu...

re: Lalas called them out, and they were who he said they were - mynamebowl
[quote]thank you that the altidore era is over[/quote] Underrated upside of this disaster. Such a frustrating player to watch. Front runner, never clutch, average MLS-level talent. He’s had basically a decade as our first choice striker and has never been exceptional. I look forward to whatever t...

re: Anyone think the Mexicants lay down tonight to try to knock the US out of the World Cup? - mynamebowl
[quote]As much as Mexico hates us, they also hate Honduras[/quote] I think they hate us more. But they won’t try to lose. Even if they put out a shite lineup, playing time for the Messican bubble guys trying to earn a spot is invaluable. ...

re: Is the USA in trouble versus Panama on Friday? - mynamebowl
[quote]You realize what you basically said earlier amounts to the sports cliche "games aren't played on paper", which is said anytime an upset happens, right?[/quote] The original point was that the US is not good or bad enough to predict a result on Friday. You came back with the idea that this ...

re: Is the USA in trouble versus Panama on Friday? - mynamebowl
[quote]You just described literally every sporting event ever.[/quote] Nope. Real Madrid is less likely to play awful on any given night than West Brom. Great teams are great because they CONSISTENTLY play great. There are less wild swings in form for really good teams. The USMNT is not a really ...

re: Is the USA in trouble versus Panama on Friday? - mynamebowl
[quote]He's not top 10 in his position in the world and isn't even a top 50 overall player in the world[/quote] I disagree. But I’ll put it this way - For the past year, he has played at a world class level. I watch a ton of soccer. I know you do too. I haven’t seen 50 players in world football t...

re: Is the USA in trouble versus Panama on Friday? - mynamebowl
[quote]You have to factor in though that Panama is in the exact same position with even lesser talented players.[/quote] True. But like I said, when you’re dealing with 2 teams that are capable of playing great or awful on any given night, literally anything could happen. The odds are in our favo...

re: The 26 players called in for WCQ - mynamebowl
[quote]we've got Panama at home and then play a team that's already eliminated[/quote] I’m honestly more concerned with T&T. You see it all the time where a team with nothing to play for and no pressure comes out hot and pulls off an upset. And with our history of struggling against less skillful...

Leagues where the best players are foreign born - mynamebowl
Typically, the majority of the best players in Spain, Germany, Italy etc are from those countries. That is not the case for the Premier League. The very top tier of players that play in England are not from England. There are a couple exceptions obviously, but you get the idea. What other le...

re: Is the USA in trouble versus Panama on Friday? - mynamebowl
Long answer: The majority of our players are the textbook definition of average. Not awful. Not terrible. Just average. When a bunch of average players (mixed in with a couple very good players and one world class player) only get together a handful of times a year to train and then play two ver...
