|8 hours 53 min ago||I knew Howard was still taking a break||
Just didn't know when he was planning to come back and if he was still planning to come back...glad to hear it's late this summer.
|8 hours 55 min ago||We win||
Everyone get naked!!!
|8 hours 58 min ago||Solid victory||
Plenty to build from, but great to get in and get some goals...build some chemistry for this particular group.
|9 hours 4 min ago||Any word or Belser and/or Tim Howard?||
|9 hours 6 min ago||You're a blog as well||
So why would you start your argument with that? As if you're putting me down for being on a blog...when you're literally doing the same thing. Think before you type.
And yes, he's struggled throughout his entire career as a defender, he's not good as a defender IMO.
That has nothing to do with an awesome goal that he scored. Your logic is awful. It's like saying just because someone is a great dunker that they're the best player on the team.
If Brad Guzan scored that goal, does that make him a great goalie?
It's just awful logic on your behalf...for someone on a blog, you should step your game up.
|9 hours 11 min ago||lol||
I didn't make a personal attack...a personal attack would be about his personality or his character or something personal, like his family.
Go back to the drinking thread and give an update...you're drunk and spewing nonsense.
If you're not, you're just an idiot. See, that was a personal attack. But it was also the truth, so I'll live with it.
|9 hours 21 min ago||It looks like they're playing with a beach ball or a marble||
Ugly design..must be Adidas (joking)
|9 hours 24 min ago||Wondo, Zusi will (should) both be gone after the GC||
...Brad Evans as well.
Still think Beckerman is going to make the final 23.
|9 hours 26 min ago||Nope. Not at all.||
Nope. Not at all. But you are a troll...so I guess we both are scary to young children.
|9 hours 29 min ago||WOW FUCK SHIT BALLS! What a||
WOW FUCK SHIT BALLS! What a goal.
I take it all back (I don't, still think he's a terrible defender, always thought he was a slow midfielder than a fast defender, but whatever)
|9 hours 28 min ago||Because an awesome goal erases a bevy of defensive errors||
|9 hours 40 min ago||Halftime||
Alvarado for Gonzalez
Garza for Johnson
Zardes for Zusi
|9 hours 49 min ago||CB?||
|9 hours 51 min ago||Subs...||
I'd like to see 3 subs right off the start...
Anyone for Chandler, Bedoya for Zusi, Zardes for Altidore.
Then in the 65th/70th minute Ice Man for Dempsey, Morales for Mix, either goalie for Guzan.
|10 hours 20 min ago||Completely disagree||
Zusi is old and shouldn't play after this tournament...but he's smart and actually good on set pieces. Probably the best we have taking corners.
Chandler gives you nothing but heartburn and plays a position where no one should say that about you.
|10 hours 19 min ago||That's why I love Yedlin||
He's going to go too fast sometimes, but eventually he's going to force some action because he just puts so much pressure on the other team.
|10 hours 27 min ago||On the flip side||
I hope this is the last time I ever have to see Timmy Chandler play for the USMNT, he's awful.
|10 hours 31 min ago||Agreed||
But I'm okay if this is the last horrah for some of the older guys. Still have 3 years.
Let the older guys win this and then start bringing in the young guns.
|10 hours 33 min ago||I love the effort of Yedlin||
His speed is something that always needs to be on the field, IMO.
|10 hours 49 min ago||Who are the 3 guys looking to enroll early?||
|10 hours 51 min ago||Hello: Hemingway/Avant 2.0?||
I'm with it.
|16 hours 46 min ago||It shouldn't be later than 3:30...||
...but I see nothing wrong with a 3:30p kick. When people complain about it, it's quite annoying. The stadium is never full and it never feels like classic games are that early.
I miss the days when 3:30 was a "special" game and noon was your cupcake/pushover type games. That was always the best, IMO.
|17 hours 32 min ago||We had 5 good coaches under Hoke...||
Nussmeier, Hecklinski, Mattison, Montgomery, Manning...that's it.
What's even worse is we had 3-4 BELOW average coaches under Hoke. Which really set us back.
|17 hours 39 min ago||I've got Gold Cup finals tickets already...||
Club seats for $60 in a section that's already up to $125 on StubHub...hoping they get ridiculously high and I can even make a little money should the US not make the final.
|21 hours 38 min ago||I shouldn't laugh at your pain, but...||
|21 hours 39 min ago||CC: Kirk Ferentz never mattered||
Neither did 90% of the "CC:" threads with the most ridiculous names and ideas ever. Bob Stitt, Jon Gruden, Tony Dungy, someone suggested we hire Brady Hoke or Mike DeBord for a year and try again for a big name coach the following winter.
Really, outside of Harbaugh, Miles, Mullen, Stoops (Bob and Mark), a couple of NFL coordinators with ties to the area and maybe a last second choice like Teryl Austin...who was EVER even remotely a realistic candidate to discuss?
The list was a stretch even at 10 names. Yet, delirium set in and people would just mention a name just so they could say why that person WASN'T a good fit. At one point we had CC: Spongebob Squarepants.
That was one of the 2-3 weird/worst periods on this board.
This Nike/Adidas/UA is typical dead horse summer material. If it wasn't this it would be something else to hold people over throughout the summer. And my thing is at least people are finding new angles...like this topic. This is a relevant thread even in October. Even if we had a longstanding relationship with NIKE and the contract wasn't up this thread would be relevant because it's also about the economy in Detroit.
Adidas building a factory in Houston? Not so much. Just my 2 pennies.
|21 hours 50 min ago||Better question...||
What am I NOT cooking? Errr grilling...
I'll be grilling everything the next two days and Sunday will be a leftover day that rivals the Friday after Thanksgiving.
The stove may only be used for sides, the oven is off limits all weekend. Basically, if it can't go on the grill, it can't go on your plate.
My favorite right now is bison burgers...
|1 day 5 hours ago||The only thing more annoying than the Adidas threads||
Are the people who run to these threads to complain about Nike/UA/Adidas threads.
We all know there are too many of these, but jeez...were you all not here for the "CC: (insert coach here)" epidemic we had just 7-8 months ago?
|1 day 6 hours ago||Because he doesn't live there||
Because he doesn't live there and there are a few nice things downtown that weren't there 5 years ago.
