Big pressure relief for all of Concacaf.  The 4th-place finisher will play the OFC winner in a one-off match in Qatar next June for a spot in the World Cup.


So New Zealand?

There's a real crappy attitude that says pull players from across our country (and beyond) as we are a proud nation of immigrants..... while saying lets play all of our qualifiers in places these same immigrant groups are away from.
 
Zero games on the east coast (or south west coast) is crappy AND shitty. BOTH!


Well if the vast majority of these immigrant groups rooted for the US and not their home country, maybe they would

I think most of the I 95 quailes since the 98 cycle had a metric f ton of away supporters.  I know the DC ones with the El Sal and Honduras definitely did.

And RBA was a shitshow of monumental proportions as it wasnt even the amount if CR fans but just how quiet the US ones were and one of a few major causes why the US lost.

Facts are facts.  The center of gravity of US Soccer has moved West from the early days of the I 95 corridor.  Blame AO.  Blame the internet.  Blame NBCSports even.  I suspect I wont see another qualifier within a 5 hour driving distance in my lifetime.  And you know, at this point Im ok with that because its exactly what the US fanbase is at this point.

And given the time windows involved, Seattle, that noted inventor of everything, is also out as are their Portlandia brethren until FIFA and or CONCACAF screw around with the quaile schedule yet again.

So, Midwest it is.  That said, double dipping in Columbus is a slap in the face to KC

2 DP spots open heading into the winter, one of the worst attacks in MLS. Seems pretty simple to me.


Its been simple for a few years now

Yet somehow, they still cant get it right.

It helps that rivals are dropping points.
11 ties so far from 28 games played.
If PAN had not beaten US & HON,
the gap between 3 & 4 would be 6 points.


That Honduras  choke against Panama was a low key brutal result.  Otherwise wed be two games up with the three weakest home games left and in perfect shape instead of having less a margin of error


#1394088 The (Fire?) Gerhard Struber Thread

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 08 November 2021 - 08:48 AM

That could be the scary part.
He has done enough to stave off termination.
Can he do better than the recent mediocrity?
Or do we get another similar year or two?


I would guess that will have more to do with The GM and ownership rather than Struber.

It's not that we don't have midfielders who can pass. We have forwards who can't finish.


Embrace the power of And

"Need for a goal... that's why Frankie Amaya is gonna come into the game."
 
Sigh.


Epitaph for the season
