I see it slightly different. They were missing Pulisic, Johnson, Brooks, Cameron, Yedlin and Wood. All of those guys are probably in the best 11. The older guys that were MLS based and called in don't seem the have younger MLS based talent pushing them for their spots. Acosta for example looked god awful.


There are some intriguing young prospects in Europe like Weston Mckinnie, who is going to make Schalkes first team and plays in midfield.

As far as Bruce, who they appoint after Russia will be of way more concern than what arena is going to do with this group for the next 18 months. If they hire Bob Bradley back instead of a guy with fresh ideas then I'll be pissed.


:thumbsup:

So PSVue dropped BeinHD and you have to pay extra now for Premier League games that aren't on regular TV. Looks like by budding soccer fandom is over.

Its even getting hard to watch MLS. For some reason Vue is now blacking out New England Revolution games. I'm trying to get into some of these lesser teams because who wants to root for some juggernaut but they are rarely the prime time games on network channels. Palace will probably hardly ever be the number 1 game on NBC.

The black jerseys Palace are wearing this year are dope. BENTEKE will look great in them.

Man U looked pretty good today. If their backline holds together they will be in the mix. Javier was predictably useless for West Ham.

After all the hype it was nice that this happened. Overrated goal hanger.

Absolutely fed up with Shelvey. Spurs were really struggling to break NUFC down and it looked like a nailed on point.

Shelvey disgusts me. I will be keeping a close eye on Newcastle this season to see how Yedlin can do.

Not surprised Ali was involved either. Two giant tools on one pitch. What a site to behold.

Pulisic doing his thing today. Hope Dembele was watching that somewhere.

BENTEKE blew his chance :(

This Chelsea v Spurs game is fun...its like Knicks v Bulls in the 90's. I wish every game was this chippy. Maybe I should be a TOT fan.

Dembele to Barca is a done deal. Pulisic will be asked to do more now for Dortmund. Excited to see how he will respond.

USMNT roster call ups are depressing. Zusi is going to start at right back in a world cup qualifier that the team has to win. It's insane. Wondo, Nick Rimando, Dax McCarty, Roldan, Lichaj...none of them belong.

yeah so there's a good chance the US misses the World Cup.

Might even be good for them long term.

Yep. Sometimes you have to hit floor hard before you realize the need to make drastic changes.
