Worms are never gonna get a handball call against them, are they?

 

Somewhere in Egypt, Amro Tarek thinks it's simply not fair.

If you go back 2 more years to 2010, New Zealand was the only nation in World Cup History to go undefeated and be eliminated in the first round. 3 draws, 2GF, 2GA. Included was a 1-1 draw with Italy.


Best bench performer in World Cup history:

"Deserve" is a funny word. Did Mexico "deserve" to be in the 2014 World Cup, when that last-minute US goal in a meaningless game saved them from elimination? And that's just one such example.

 

After the debacle of the last cycle, the US needs to do everything in its power to get an advantage in these games. Home field matters. Away support matters. Minimize it. You don't see Mexico or Costa Rica taking it easy on the US, do you? Canada played Mexico in Edmonton not because Edmonton "deserved" a game.

 

I don't care how they qualify, just qualify please.

Firing Savarese was one of the stupidest moves in club history. Good job, MdG.

If you think/believe the performance in the last ~12 games will translate to next season, you can make the argument that things are looking up for 2022. No guarantees, of course, but that decent streak can certainly be spun as grounds for optimism.


Does that include the goalscoring?
