#1328117 The World Cup Thread

Posted by Eleazar on Today, 12:52 PM

i think USA needed a Tab Ramos goal in Panama(?) just to get out the group stage and into the Hex back in 2000. 

 

miracle runs happen at the world cup. just look at USA in 02.

Have we seen him play the wing yet this season? Seems like he could be good there, and like Veron, Marsch doesnt trust him there.

 

Yeah, I think that's what it is. He trusts Etienne's thirst for goals, hence he gets PT up top.

the way how it was translated to me is that Nadur, the Huracan Team Prez is flying in to give us a last shot at a bid. Then he's off to Portugal to hear Benfica's.

 

Highest bid wins Pussetto's contract, essentially. My prediction is that he's a Benfica player at the end of this transfer window.

I think the 3 man CB thing could work if it was Long Parker and one of either Ndam or Fidel. Not Collin. 

 

Etienne can score, he can dribble. usually played LW and RW for RB2. i don't mind him as striker off the bench.

#1327583 Random Romanian winger

Posted by Eleazar on 13 June 2018 - 03:51 PM

Video highlight, imo, shows that he should be at a level higher than top of the Regionaliga, at least upper 3.Liga. Looks skillful, like Valot.




#1327501 Davis / Adams / Parker Contracts

Ndam's waiting in the wings. I didn't think at all that Ndam would be ready to start league/cup matches with the 1st team. 

 

Glad he was ready. 




#1327485 Adams and Parker vs Ireland and France

I think playing VAN kept him under the radar, and being the overshadowed 2nd guy in the Kendall Waston pairing had something to do it, methinks.

Seattle is losing at home to DC.

 

Would make perfect sense to drop points to them when they're so vulnerable.

Please let us host against DC.

RSL game, a mistake cost us a road result

ORL game, a couple of mistakes cost us a road result

NE game, a mistake cost us a road point

 

In the above 3 games the team fielded an understrength lineup. Limit the mistakes and the understrength lineup can snatch a result.

Chicago was the 1st MLS team to win 4 USOCs. Seattle was 2nd. Now SKC is 3rd. DC is only team that has 3, last won in 2013.

it's boring, i'll give it that, but it provides quite a few us an opportunity to travel w/o having to go by plane or drive for more than 5 hrs. 

 

i also think MLS teams should play in the 3rd rd against a lower division side, no exceptions.
