  1. TARFT: New Forum, New Thread

    I'm around as you wait 2-3 weeks for me to resurface.
  2. 2019 Women's World Cup Thread

    Yeah, I thought was all just a pretty bad look to be honest. At some point you've got to take your foot off the gas and let the game run its course. I'm honestly not a huge fan of the US women's team, theyve always struck me as a bit brash. I agre with what Kempus was saying about having more nations who are vastly inferior might not be the way to go. No one wants to watch that, it's not fun for the players or the fans and just sort of devalues the whole opening rounds. I havent watched a ton of matches so far but the few I have seemed like theyve been a bit higher quality techincally than in the past which is a very good thing.
  3. Will 2022 be held in Qatar?

    Yes. It absolutely shouldn't but FIFA is corrupt as hell. If anyone wants to action it has to be someone outside of FIFA. It's honestly disgusting that it hasnt been taken away from them yet.
  4. USMNT Thread: Wandering in the Wilderness

    Honestly I think MLS is on a pretty good path. Signing retiring players is less and less of a go to and signing South American players who are younger and good on the ball is a good path. I think we're also starting to see MLS academies pay off and bring through young talent. It's never going to be a top league in the world but I think it's on a better path than it was during the Beckham years.
  5. USMNT Thread: Wandering in the Wilderness

    There are definitely a huge amount of problems with youth soccer but I dont think it's the only thing that is causing these issues. Our U-20 teams have reached the quarterfinals three competitions in a row and that shows a decent amount of talent and a somewhat functional process. We've also got more and more younger guys heading to Europe which can only be a good thing. The last two games have raised a lot of eyebrows about the manager and the MLS more so than youth talent in my opinion. The likes of Trapp, Arriola, Roldan and many others have simply not shown anywhere near enough to suggest they have a future with the national team and they aren't exactly young talent. I don't mean to turn this into an MLS is crap argument but at the moment we've got a handful of good players surrounded by talent that just isnt anywhere near the same level. I think Gregg definitely has something to do with the performances because, as poor as some of the talent maybe, its certainly better than a Jamaica side with mostly USL players. I'm not shouting for the guy to be fired but hes going to have a lot of questions to be asked and at a minimum his sticking to a system is going to be under a lot of scrutiny if the US does poorly in the Gold Cup. Those last two games were some of the poorest I can remember and there have been plenty of competition the last four years or so.

    So, uh, what the hell?
  7. This Ain't Bills Talk 2.0 OT1

    You are definitely not in the minority. Everyone hates Rodak haha. The fact the new beat writer is going to someone from Carolina is absolutely not surprising haha.
  8. 2018/19 Europe Thread - It begins again

    He's obviously a good player and has had some really great seasons of late but there is just something about him that drives me crazy watching him. He is very direct but idk, it just seems like he makes the wrong decision all of the time, even sometimes when it works out for him haha. I just see a lot of attacks break down around him and maybe it's just because he is on the ball often because he is a willing runner but his decision making with the ball has never impressed me.
  9. 2018/19 Europe Thread - It begins again

    I gotta say, I was hoping Spurs would win and I was pretty disappointed by the performance they gave. Kane was clearly not fit and they just never really troubled Liverpool at all. I've also never been a huge fan of Son, he's capable of some great solo goals but I just feel like he is super wasteful. He reminds me a bit of a much better Clint Dempsey. His goals are great but what exactly does he do?

    This is the worst CL final I've ever seen. Dreadful, dreadful football.
  11. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Inconsistent? I'd say non existant. Why the hell would the three eyed raven even want to be king? It's such a weird, weird decision to make him king.
  12. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    It's a little bit in the middle for me. It doesnt mean nothing but it's super, super underwhelming for such a major reveal.
  13. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    It's amazing how people used the same logic to defend criticisms of past episodes by saying "you dont need to see everything on screen" but now all of a sudden you can't make the assumption that a dragon would probably assume that the only other person in the room probably killed Dany because it isn't explicably stated what the dragon is thinking.
  14. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    It really, really was. At least a million people think so.
  15. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    This season was bad enough, we dont need a Star Wars crossover....
