5-1. Iran are putrid

And yes, expansion to 48 is nonsensical

It seems that the more any sports entity chase revenue streams the worse it gets for the average fan

I think it would make more sense have it every 3 years than expanding it, especially with the proposed groups of 3. All those qualifying games and prep and you're out after 2 games?

 

Every 3 years would allow for a year of qualifying and a year for the confederation tournament. Screw that stupid nations cup. The minnows can play during the World Cup year to begin qualifying for the next one. Plus, I'm getting older. I don't know how many four-year cycles I've got left in me, lol

Iran not showing up puts some pressure on the US winning today. If everyone gets a win against Iran, it will come down to direct results vs Wales and England for the US. Goal differential might come at play too, so good thing Iran snuck in two.

Someone needs to load Guam up with USA's backups. Should be good enough to qualify out of Asia.

I think that you need to actually be born in Guam to represent them. At least that's what I remember reading. Maybe it was American Samoa ...

AJ DeLaGarza did, and he was born in Maryland. So maybe parent is OK?

 

I guess the rule that had Taylor Graham play for Puerto Rico no longer applies.

Makes no difference. Just beat Wales


Thought we had them.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Both Klimala and Barlow can fit right in and be just as useless/clueless playing for Qatar, cuz they are both obvious wastes of space. 


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig, Celenio Eleazar, and my Mom, Resurreccion Eleazar.

 

RIP Cesar Castello, Mike Vallo, Glenn Stampiglia, Bob Paquette, and Warren Lee

Jeremy Hall played for Puerto Rico, so I think it's grandparents or 5 years residency as an adult.

Yeah seriously had to turn on last 15 min

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.
