Kit Sponsorship Question - mynamebowl
Will there come a time when kit sponsors aren’t highlighted on the front of every shirt in world football? I assume the reason club football has adopted the tradition of the sponsor company’s logo being the largest, most visible part of the shirt is for maximum sponsorship $$$ but you would thin...

re: Europa and Champions league draw - mynamebowl
[quote]If Roma has De Rossi, Nainggolan and Strootman all healthy it's certainly going to be quite a different sort of challenge in the midfield than what Liverpool has likely faced so far.[/quote] You have a point. But Liverpool just beat City 5-1 over two legs with a midfield rotation of Hender...

re: If you think anyone who's ever played soccer is better than Lionel Messi, you're stupid - mynamebowl
[quote]The quality of the champions league is much better than the World Cup[/quote] Same goes for the the Euros. One could argue the same for Copa America as well. Both of those tournaments undoubtedly field less shite teams than the World Cup does every four years. It’s not the standard bearer f...

re: Nice write up about Young Germans who could wear the Stars n Stripes - mynamebowl
[quote]If they want to play for us then play for us in the youth ranks from the get[/quote] So what you’re saying is a bunch of German boys (or any other dual-nationals that grew up outside of America) should travel to the US several times a year rather than train and play in a superior environme...

re: A Question About Soccer Fandom - mynamebowl
Just so I’m clear and don’t misrepresent what I was trying to say - I prefer club > country by a mile. My point was I don’t have any teams I truly love. I just love to watch the best clubs play the game with no real vested interest in the result. And like I said, those teams vary season to season ...

A Question About Soccer Fandom - mynamebowl
I mean no offense to any of the frequent Soccer Board posters when I say this, honestly. But it’s become a little stale for me around here lately. A large part of it has to be due to the fact that our national team failed to qualify for the this summers version of the World Cup. It still bums me out...

re: 2018 Kit Thread - mynamebowl
I don’t get the hate on Nike’s kits. Correct me if I’m wrong here, but aren’t all of these originals? They don’t look like templates to me. And they look really great too IMO. [img]https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WWBcnIPljjE/WjjaRGBn77I/AAAAAAABYk4/ZwlxDfC_usUZqe9nGADsJHdOs_qZV85NwCLcBGAs/s550/psg-18...

[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,...
