#1392367 USA World Cup Qualifiers Thread

I watched two games via Universo on the NBC Sports App, so I would think the US game will be available via that.

Edit - just checked. Its on there


Didn't work. "You are not subscribed to that channel."

 

Stream, anyone?

Makes it even more frustrating that the Haksabanovic deal fell apart over $1M, but they saw fit to spend even more on Klimala.

Not sure if Haksa was envisioned as the 10 in the diamond that Struber wanted to play, but he would have at least been a better option than starting the season with CCJ there and panic buying Amaya, who had looked better as a deeper midfielder with Cincy.

They replaced their DP CAM with a DP ST, like putting the cart before the horse. No service, no goals.


Haksa is not exactly tearing up the Russian league. 1 goal, 1 assist in 10 games/starts.

They definitely lost points because of the patchwork central defense. The 3:2 home loss to the Revs is one prime example. Or the late tie vs Philly when Egbo was playing CB. Or the Tarek giveaway vs DC. Or Tarek in Montreal.

 

Tarek started 8 straight games and the team went 1-4-3. Not a coincidence.

Yearwood cost ~$2M. Yearwood has fitness issues. Yearwood was demoted to the reserves. Yearwood has played 90 minutes TWICE all year. Yearwood is a card magnet.

 

Yes, he has been better lately, but "starting to put pieces together"? It's been over a year. About time.

 

If not a bust, he is pretty damn close.

 

I know WhoScored.com is not ideal, but he is ranked 15th on the team this year.

I hope he keeps improving, but we can do so much better for the price.

Thinking about the future. 2022 MLS Champs?


Same old excuses.

 

The tough questions weren't asked (or answered?)

Cincy is such garbage. But we need to be able to score against garbage.

A few years ago, you can watch pretty much every important soccer game from all over the world on regular cable. Now it's just a mess... (And all I care about is Metro and USA!)

#1391860 USL team is done after next year

Posted by MetroFanatic on 30 September 2021 - 04:04 PM

 

I think having reserve teams in the second division works in those countries because of the option for promotion and relegation for the non-reserve teams. (Not trying to start a whole "promotion/relegation in MLS" discussion. I hate those). But in this instance, I think having promotion/relegation makes the league interesting to watch. Without that option, the reserve teams, which don't have passionate support, make the league harder to watch.


That is true today, but when we kicked ass and took names back in 2016, it really took the league to the next level.

Hamlett learned to back-date documents! Next goal is to figure out read receipts...
