So stupid of FIFA to go to three-team groups. These simultaneous games have been pretty crazy.

Exactly. Morocco and Japan as group winners? Who had that on their bracket?

65' in and the Ticos are one goal away from knocking out both Germany and Spain. Fingers crossed.

Wow! There it is! Now just hold on for 20'+!

I watched the last 15 minutes of the Mexico game in a doctor's waiting room yesterday. A Mexico fan was also watching and was totally stressing out (of course). He became completely deflated when the Saudi's scored but I quickly told him that the goal didn't matter, Mexico still only needed one more goal. That really perked him up until the game ended and then became even more dejected at that point. That was fun.

Wow, that took some balls. I kinda think that even Big Jake wouldn't be able to help this guy out.

Clint Mathis has the same total number of World Cup goals as the entire country of Canada

His predictions are as successful as his coaching

Has Poland announced the roster yet? Fingers crossed for Mr. Klimala!!!

Fingers crossed for Karl Ouimette (about equally as likely)

Very happy for Tim Ream, as well. I also think it's indicative of how far we have grown as a soccer nation that there is even a discussion of whether the captain of a Premier League side is good enough to make the squad.

Hoping for a Philadelphia double today, championship losses by the Union and the Phillies


#1418559 Metro - Crew Game Thread

Posted by Speedball on 28 September 2022 - 12:33 PM



Also we have a game this weekend!!
should be interesting as C Bus is a tough style match up for us and as they are currently out of the playoff standings they will really need to press the game which hopefully opens things up for us.

It seems to have slipped under Jan Halvor Halvorsen's nose




#1418548 Introducing: Metrodle

Yesterday: Frank Rost

 

Today: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to this hint, I got it on my first guess.  :D




#1418521 Introducing: Metrodle

Got it in 2 guesses because my first guess narrowed down the uniform number down to where it could be only one of two players.




#1417968 Losing the jersey sales competition

I think his name has more to do with it,

He's #2 in sales because no Fuchs are given.




#1417643 Metro - Worms Game Thread

Posted by Speedball on 06 September 2022 - 09:54 AM

Whose the 3rd? I can't remember another one

Add to the list the time Petter Villegas was left off the starting XI and was clearly upset about it. Instead of warming up on the field pregame, he was just repeatedly shooting the ball against the wall in Giants Stadium near me. He eventually over shot the wall and blasted some guy a few seats away from me in the face, breaking his glasses.

Contenders:
Babjide Ogunbiyi - 17 days failed physical
Nick Rimando - 14 days before sending him back to RSL
Quincy Amarikwa - 14 days, though technically never "signed" with us. We claimed him off waivers then he trained with us until we traded his rights to Toronto 2 weeks later.

Wasn't Eric Wynalda a Metro for like 30 seconds?
