Who would you consider a better player than someone who has been playing in one of the top leagues in the world for the last five years?

USMNT needs Cameron to get some good game time before the hex starts again this year.

Ace, love the Happy Gilmore reference for Brian.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||4K Broadcast||
There are some broadcasters that have started to deliver 4K video already, DirectTV being the one I know of since I watched the Super Bowl in 4K at a friends house.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Marseille||
Unfortunately for Marseille they are currently in 6th place and have done so by taking some BPL players who coudln't make the cut (Payet & Depay). If they are serious they will need to attract other top French stars like Griezmann or Nasri.
It would be nice if Ligue 1 was more than just whoever will finish behind PSG.

I agree with you that like most French teams not named PSG, Monaco will find it very difficult to hold on to their best young talent. In a few years you will see their best and brightest playing in Germany, Spain, and England. Still makes for a potentially interesting matchday.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Pep's Style||
Pep's style of defense is, "if I have the ball you can't score..." he's used that to great effect at Barca, Munich, and is instilling that idea at City. The problem with that is once you crack initial rush they do not fare well on defense.
This game will be very interesting if Monaco can drive an open pace and maintain enough possession to get City working in the defensive 3rd.
Should be a very entertaining weeknight game either way.

So now we know that Man U will be playing in London at Chelsie. It's really too bad that couldn't be the final with The Special One getting a little back from his old club.
|5 weeks 23 hours ago||Extra Time for Bayern Munich||
First it was interesting that the referee decided to add five extra minutes when they had no major delays, penalties, or other stoppages. Second, while the 5 minutes is a minimum it's not exactly standard to let it go quite that long. I wish we could hear what was going on in the center referee's mind that made him extend it until Bayern had the equalizer. Tough break, but a fantastic defensive game by Hatha, they played it as well as they possibly could.

GRIII's time was way too short, but we at least are blessed with these gems.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Manchester United||
Only question is can United get back to the top 4 and get back to the UEFA Champions League next year.
City is like State, enjoy your time in the limelight, 3-9 like Winter is coming...

Not to mention we have WC qualifying for USNMT and the Gold Cup this summer

Brian, thank you for your insights and interest. Those of us who love the beautiful game appreciate it.

Mark Geiger is the first American referee to be involved in a World Cup semi. Let's hope it is a better called game than Brazil versus Columbia

One fact to bring up about soccer. More kids play soccer today in the US than any other sport.
|2 years 43 weeks ago||Strange Selections||
It's not just Donovan missing from the 23 man roster. Clarence Goodson was expected to compete for a starting centerback slot and he was passed over for John Brooks, Geoff Cameron and an injured out of form Gonzales.
There is a lot of youth on this roster now with Brooks, Yedlin and Green. That points towards getting experience for Russia 2018.
|6 years 45 weeks ago||Connor Casey||
Casey has not been in good form so far this season (unlike last year). On the other hand Buddle, Johnson & Gomez have been scoring. Of the three I think that EJ gives us the greatest opportunity as he has loads of pace and can finish.
|6 years 45 weeks ago||Ledley King plays great for||
Ledley King plays great for one game and unfortunately since we are the first we will get the brunt of it. Look out for Ledley's partner from Spurs, Michael Dawson, to be the one who really steps up for England
