Makes me sad that Jonathan Gonzalez will never be mentioned in these articles.

Most overrated player is harsh. Wasn't following soccer too seriously in 2006, so the bonehead vs Ghana I remember is Ricardo Clarke in 2010.

Can we bring back the link that would go straight to the newest comment?

It is inconceivable is you consider the other domestic tournaments and champions league/uefa cup

Wow. What a start for England.

It is perplexing. When I started seriously watching soccer in the mid 2000s, Inter was the team to beat. It was a battle to finish in the top 4 usually consisted of teams like Roma, Milan and Juve. 

It almost seems like Juve have been winning Serie A for the past decade, but now teams like Napoli and Roma are in the top spots. It seems like Milan hasn't been the same since the match fixing scandal. Inter hasn't been that same since early 2010s. 

It seems like both Inter and Milan have had management issues when the clubs were sold to foreign investors. It sounds like Milan is going to go through so major changes with their ownership group and board of directors.

Gonna post Belgium v France stuff here since I'm too lazy to make a thread.

Interesting formation by Belgium to be in a 343 with De Bryune playing winger.

It looks like Karim Benzema might be on his way out as well. Rumors are Napoli is looking to sign him.

I always thought Ronaldo would retire as a Madrid player. The Galaticos had all time legends, but these Ronaldo led teams have the trophies to make the case for being the best Real squad assembled. 

07/10/2018 - 12:13pm Letter from Ronaldo.

Letter from Ronaldo.

Translation I found on reddit.

These years in Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life.

I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this hobby and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.

However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me.

They have been absolutely wonderful for 9 years. They have been 9 unique years. It has been an exciting time for me, full of consideration but also hard because Real Madrid is of a very high demand, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.

I have had fabulous teammates in the field and in the dressing room, I have felt the warmth of an incredible crowd and together we have won 3 Champions in a row and 4 Champions in 5 years. And with them also, on an individual level, I have the satisfaction of having won 4 Gold Balls and 3 Gold Boots. All during my time in this immense and extraordinary club.

Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thanks to the club, the President, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly.

Thank you infinitely once more to our fans and thanks also to Spanish Football. During these 9 exciting years I have had great players in front of me. My respect and my recognition for all of them.

I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle. I'm leaving but this shirt, this shield and the Santiago Bernabéu will continue to always feel as my own wherever I am.

Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium 9 years ago: Hala Madrid!

What if people are so lazy like me that they can't be bothered to highlight the link.

Is Jackson really considered a RB to the staff? I get the feeling that he is being recruited more as a slot or offensive weapon like Michael Barrett from the 2018 class.

I'm confused at what a viper is now.

There are articles saying that Joey Velazquez is recruited to play Viper.

I thought he was being recruited as a pure safety.

Trevon Raphael is an interesting prospect. Only started playing football last year. Bill Greene put in a CB for Michigan. Transferred so he is taking summer classes and is on the path to be  academically eligible for next season.

The staff is going to monitor his progress academically before "going all in."

Bring in the subs to just make wild slide tackles all over the pitch. That would be something to watch.

Sounds like not being around your wife's family might be what is relieving your stress.

06/26/2018 - 5:53pm Not sure how you do it, but…

Not sure how you do it, but I'm a huge ball of stress during Michigan games.

I love to fish, so the act of going fishing is a stress relief. That all changes when I can't get a bite or if I'm being out-fished.

Swimming is probably my biggest stress relief.

There are lots of little things like that with the new website that make it less enjoyable to post.

Excited to see what he can do in situational packages.

This is exactly how I feel. Some people have an unhealthy amount of hate for C-Webb.

I don't know why, but half volleys always look cool.

Feel bad for that Iceland defender who took and accidental knee to the back of the head after that goal.

Reports are that Argentina players had a meeting and asked for Sampaoli to be removed as manager before their match with Nigeria.

06/21/2018 - 7:35pm I wonder what formation/line…

I wonder what formation/line up changes Sampoli makes for this last game. Will he decide to go back to a 4 man back line after the disaster today?

Whatever that was today was not a good showing from the MF. I would think about starting guys like Banega and Di Maria.

Their defense is bad and MF is non-existent.

I think it is being changed after this WC to a system that uses some kind of ELO rating.

I think being off site helps it move along. The ref wont walk over to the sideline to check for himself if he doesn't need to.

Did anyone else see the Block M flag being held up?

Wow Fernandes with the dream shake to set up that goal. I guess that is the Brazillian flair he brings to the team.

It seems like there have been more OG and PK this world cup.

06 was right around the time that I started to really get into soccer. So my first impression of Trezeguet was him hitting the cross bar. But, you are right, he did have a great career with Juve.

#21 on Egypt goes by his nickname Trezeguet. All I remember is him missing the PK in the 06 WC.
