  • Re: World Soccer XXV - the run up to the World Cup

    It's all gone quiet in Portland. Seattle beats Portland 4-2. Seattle played two games in Portland, scored 4 goals in both.

      Tim Howard will make his season debut as an NBCSN commentator for tomorrow's Liverpool-Man City match. NBCSN will devote 3 hours of pregame coverage to the match, starting at Noon EST.

        Surprised we haven't gotten comments on Jermaine Jones to the Revs. Don't get me wrong as I like the MLS, but the only way the national team gets better is if our good players try to make a go out of it Europe. I'm not a Euro hipster, but I know we've got to test ourselves vs. the best of the best.

          Jones will be too old to factor into the 2018 World Cup team. Might as well capitalize on whatever minor celebrity he's earned.

            Yeah, Jones isn't likely to climb any higher in Europe, so I can understand that side of it.

            The story to me is how MLS handles distributing these players.

              That they need to stop handling it and just let it happen now that DPs exist? Also, I think getting players like Jones in MLS will be good for the next generation. A player like him shoeing other guys how it's done can only help things for the MLS.

                I can see that. I don't think that Seattle really is the best place for Clint Dempsey (aside from personal reasons), but Clint Dempsey in Seattle might be a great thing for the Yedlins of the world.

                  Can somebody explain the odd results in the League Cup? I gather the BPL sides look at it as a chance to play some of their reserves??

                        In MLS news, Seattle leads Chivas USA 4-0.

                        In the first half.

                          Sounds like it was a good game for the US youth squad. I didn't get to watch it but from the write-up I read, it sounds like the younger players don't know that they are not supposed to be good enough, and so when the Coach says, "do this" they try it and it works.

                            So Sepp is running for a fifth term? If he gets elected, the Islamic State has a better shot of hosting a World Cup than USA or England.

                              I thought I read somewhere today that Sepp would like the USA to submit a bid to host for 2026.

                              England, on the other hand, is looking like it can go pound sand. Maybe Scotland & Ireland should give it a go?

                                And US Soccer President Sunil Gulati has said not until the bid process is overhauled.

                                So that's a no.
