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...

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,...

Whether he liked it or not and regardless of who was wearing the armband, Dempsey was the best, most important player we had (o...

[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...

[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...
