This is the only tie left that will be worth watching next round. Hoping Aubemeyang gets out of Der Funkt.
United fan here, hoping City has a two legged dogfight with Monaco and Arsenal attempt to overturn the result (they won't). I do think this is the year they drop out of the Top 4 and hopefully plummet for a few years like ours have done recently.
Interesting day and unfortunately, no need to watch the DVR'd games. Wow, who'd have thunk PSG would be through to next round already without Tiago Silva back there. No chance they overturn that score.
Tuchel to Arsenal sounds like a continuation of the present; sign him up as soon as Arse leaves. Benfica is solid but Dortmund should've still taken this game. They just lost 20 million euros on that Aubemeyang price tag. He was not good.
Still think Bayern wins by 2 at home and moves to next round. Real will end with a tie.
Wow, go yo! Wish I was in the deck chair on my ass watching anything but masochistic peeps destroy themselves. Good luck and be the 40%! And then drink a 6er of Longboard for us!!
RIP. Fuck cancer
So...can we get Aubrey Solomon? Is he offered or another southern DT?
Can I please DV the whole topic? More jive turkey shenanigans from the wanna be Bo crew
Worse yet, it wasn't Butland in goal. Keeper was making his second start but made some great saves.
For some reason, the game did not record all the way and the stream on DirectTV was bad all morning. I missed almost half the game due to it. Joe Allen was on fire for Stoke for the bits I could watch. United played well but have to finish better. Pogba had a couple pops that were lacking.
Spurs looked good beating City, what a loaded young team. Will be an overly competitive year at the top with pool in form, Spurs, Arse, City, United all looking good.
Would agree Mata is gone along with Rojo and probably Blind. Schweini has an offer to go to PSG (let him). I would be fine losing Fellaini as well but think Valencia and Young offer depth in the squad though that may not matter to Jose.
Also heard that James Wilson is being sold along with Keane (Will?). I would hope the other youngsters are given a chance for depth, especially Tyler Blacket and the two you named.
Wish they had gone for Jose after Moyes, would've made a lot more sense than the LVG days other than being forced to play youngsters thanks to injuries and a lack of depth
Expensive signing and I hope he ends up being worth it. He is not currently. Jose will be able to get some big players in thanks to his agent Raiola but this fee includes his 20% or should.
Pogba has the potential to be one of the best CMs in the world and can easily slot into Carrick's spot but think he looks better on the left side and not as a deep holding mid. If Schneiderland is given a chance to live up to his Southampton days as the deep/holding CM then that will help Pogba. He may also take minutes from Rooney at the 10 spot.
Been a pretty good summer for United. Zlatan will be good for a year or two while also allowing Rashford to stick around. Mihkytarian can play the 10 or be on the right with Martial on the left. Bailly looks like he may be a great partner for Smalling. Would've liked to see them go harder after N'Golo Kante and/or Kroos. Think we have enough offensive type kids but as I said earlier, hopefully Schneiderland gets back to form.
Now who leaves?
Solid tournament for USMNT, didn't think they'd get to semis so I was pleasantly surprised. May be the last big tournament for Dempsey and Jones, will be missed. Defense stepped up for first four games and is solid for future. Need to find a playmaking mid that can create opportunities for Wood, Morris and other attackers. Bradley needs to drop back to DM. Bedoya is decent and has improved but is not going to be the man.
Will be interesting to see how much more time JK gets, presume through next World Cup cycle. Needs to keep the youth coming. And leave Jozy home!
Would that have been our first real shot on goal? Kid looks good but has a lot to learn and hopefully gains some muscle
Who is going to make those passes though? Move Dempsey back?
Good to see Beckerman off. Wish Zardes could learn a first touch but he has worked his arse off as usual. Pulisic is playing well but he is getting outmuscled (nice work there though).
I'm thankful that they don't have Di Maria or Aquero healthy. Ouch! Lavezzi
Bradley.....again! Damn it, get him out
Most of their players play on top teams in Europe; ours play in MLS. It's like MLB vs AAA talent level. Messi is the best player in the world, Higuain is a top 10 forward who just set the Italian league scoring record. Masherano plays for Barca and is a top 10 defender. They're world class players going against lesser guys and can do what they want. Pulisic is a potential "next" great player for the US but he is a sub for his European club. Glad to see him in at this point as he brings a spark that we did not have.
Think tOSU vs tsun in Novmeber. They're just better. We run around trying to get the ball and even when we do, we either give it to them or they take it back.
He is one of the better options but it's hard to tell if we have better since he does start most games. Usually better going forward but his decision making has been poor for a few years. Jones helps bail him out.
This game or this tournament? No is the answer
Bradley and Becke not offering much of anything at mid, need to get some energy and creativity in there if we are to have a chance. Oh wait, we don't have those. Bring in Nagbe and Pulisic! At least get some more energy going forward
May end up being the GOAT over Pele and Maradonna. Unbelievable shot
Damn....at least we got to semis. Now if we can keep the score under 7.....
Lol, Ahlyn Harris just got the yellow for Wondo..... Saw Priscilla Chinchilla het one earlier in Copa
Athletes dominate at an early level and soccer parents expect to win when they pay ridiculous club fees. Other countries invest in development of youth and training without the need to win so much. We'd probably dominate a physical testing (combine) but ball skills are last on the list. It's unfortunate.
