#1398915 USA World Cup Qualifiers Thread

Posted by Speedball on Yesterday, 11:02 AM

Walker Zimmerman views winter weather as a prime opportunity for himself and his American teammates. He remembered back to March 2013, when he viewed on television the infamous Snow Clasico, a 1-0 victory over Costa Rica during a blizzard at Commerce City, Colorado.

 

“I was even talking to my wife over the break,” the 28-year-old defender said Wednesday. “I was like, you know what? I want it to be freezing. I want it to be cold. I want the snow. I want to be a part of something so iconic that I saw and I really remember growing up. And that’s exciting to me. So I think the guys are ready to embrace it, embrace the cold. And it will be a really good environment for us fan-wise, as well.”

Can Hamlett get fired now?

Not until he wastes all the GAM that we have left, and any bitcoin that may be laying around, too.

Neither are from LI. 

 

Maybe John Wolyniec left his coaching position because he's coming out of retirement? *fingers crossed*  ;)

#1394120 USA World Cup Qualifiers Thread

Posted by Speedball on 08 November 2021 - 12:20 PM

Kinda jealous of Canada's home field advantage. They have both November home games (Costa Rica & Mexico) scheduled for Commonwealth Stadium, home of the Edmonton Eskim ... er, I mean Elks. They have 5 wins, 3 ties and zero losses all-time in World Cup qualifiers there, including two ties vs Mexico. BTW - The weather calls for below freezing all day and a chance of snow for the Mexico game.

538 predicts that we will finished tied with DC, but they would make the playoffs over us based on goal differential, because ... say it with me ... That's So Metro! #MPF

Officially dropped

"The timing of the move is impactful: the Devils, Rangers and Islanders are in the midst of their respective preseasons, the Knicks begin their preseason slate next week and the Red Bulls are entering the stretch run of a push to make the MLS Playoffs over the next month-and-a-half."
