      • Awful. Way too much rotation in tonight’s lineup when we’re already without our 2 best players for the window.

        That loss is huge because now instead of competing with Mexico for #1, we are firmly in contention with Canada and now Panama for positions 2-3.

        For once I’d like to see Berhalter put out an aggressive, attacking lineup. Something like Konrad, Pepi and Weah as forwards, with Aaronson, Musah and Adams in the midfield. Dest and Robinson as fullbacks. Zimmerman and miles Robinson have played well but still would like to see Chris Richards, probably in Robinsons place.

          If I was choosing a team now that wasn't top 4, but had good ownership, ambition, and excitement, I would probably go with Wolverhampton.
          I like Blackpool and Tranmere Rovers. Blackpool are back in The Championship and currently sit 12th.

          Tranmere Rovers are currently fifth in League Two resting one point ahead of...Leyton Orient. LOL

          The only other Premier League teams I like are Newcastle and Southampton. I see that changing rather shortly.

          • Saudi-Newcastle soccer takeover prompts 'sportswashing' concerns

            LONDON — A former shipbuilding city in northeast England may seem an unlikely place for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to rehabilitate his tarnished reputation.

            And yet last week, hundreds of Newcastle residents gathered outside the city’s soccer stadium to pay homage to the power behind the Saudi throne — the man widely known as MBS.

            Some tied dishtowels to their heads, others waved Saudi flags, and a few even wore masks of the crown prince himself — a world leader accused of a raft of human rights abuses and of ordering the assassination of a prominent journalist.

            On a sporting level, these supporters had good reason to cheer. Saudi Arabia’s $400 billion sovereign wealth fund had just bought their long-suffering soccer team, Newcastle United, overnight making it the world’s richest club. But the deal has spurred criticism that Saudi Arabia is using the team, founded in 1892, as a vehicle for “sportswashing.”

            In other words, Saudi Arabia is accused of trying to launder its reputation so that it is no longer synonymous with a brutal absolute monarchy that jails activists, carries out public beheadings and oppresses women and the LGBTQ community, and becomes known instead as the smiling face of international soccer success.

            “It gives the Saudi authorities an opportunity to put their name, their branding and positive messages about their country around the world,” said Felix Jakens, head of U.K. campaigns at the human rights group Amnesty International.

            It’s a familiar playbook. Manchester City is now owned by Abu Dhabi’s royal family and Paris Saint Germain by Qatar's sovereign wealth fund, to name a few. Soccer’s elite is increasingly dominated by faraway regimes with bottomless pockets.

            But the Saudi-Newcastle takeover has prompted international outrage on another level.

            “This is a country that carries out some of the worst, systematic human rights violations against its own population — and the situation is getting worse, not better,” Jakens said.

            The Saudi Ministry of Media did not respond to a request for comment about its human rights record and the allegations of sportswashing.
            ‘Colossal change’

            The face of the $400 million deal is a British businesswoman, Amanda Staveley of PCP Capital Partners. Saudi Arabia’s sovereign Public Investment Fund owns 80 percent of the team.

            The consortium says the fund is independent from the Saudi government. The Premier League says it has received “legally binding assurances” that this is the case. Many experts disagree, pointing out that the fund’s board is composed of Saudi government ministers and its chairman is MBS himself.

            The crown prince has been trying to overhaul the kingdom’s image from being seen as an exporter of Islamic radicalism to a modern powerhouse instead driven by technology, tourism, entertainment, and sports. Accompanying social reforms mean women are now allowed to drive and movie theaters have opened for the first time in 35 years.

              He did have an aggressive lineup the previous game. Play felt very different than the first window. I expected that to continue but,….

                      • Pepi isn’t there yet and wasn’t active enough. Still like him as the 9 though.

                        if you didn’t know CR scored in the first minute you’d think that was some of the best soccer they’ve played since they beat Mexico.

                        I will love Weah as a spark plug. Bring him on in the 55th or 60th minute to run against tired legs.

                        Dest giveth and Dest taketh. I still think trying him at RW is worth it. Interchange with him and Yedlin would be amazing.

                        McKennie had a few turnovers but he was picking out some insane passes. Adams was immense as always.

                        Really important stat from the night: US’s oldest player was younger than Costa Rica’s youngest player. This was a battle of talent but inexperience against a weak but super experienced squad. I think the team took a big step tonight to get 3 points and getting Pulisic and Reyna back will make 3 points against Mexico attainable.

                            Rather not have him buried on an premier league roster. In terms of minutes, he’s in the top 11 for the reigning French champions and really starting to develop a rapport with one of the best young strikers in the world…. Man how awesome would it be if New York native, Jonathan David, decided to play for the USMNT???

                            • Issue with the US,… first touches,… jeebus, Mary, and all the Saints,… can ANYONE receive the ball without spitting it back five yards??? It’s shocking honestly. Beyond that creativity in the attack,… it’s the same design every damned time and the design they go with is like running streaks every play in football,… mix shit up. I gave GB way more room than most and I’m even getting there, at least on this point,… anyway, that’s my TedTalk for the day.

                                Who says he'd have to be buried? If he's good, he's going to start in the Premier League.

                                If not, he'll stay in France.

                                    • I half watched the United game. Poor defending in the first half and they were missing good chances. I'm actually surprised they came back to win. Somehow, they are on top of an easy group. If they keep playing like this, they'll get lit up in the round of 16.

                                      The last time they played Liverpool with questions surrounding a coach, they lost 3-1 and Mourinho was sacked...

There was literally nothing good about that game, the defense was horrible, has been since Euros. The midfield has always been rough. The forwards couldn't do anything. Pogba deserved a red, Ronaldo probably should have had one too. Not sure about the other two, I left the TV because I couldn't stomach to watch anymore of that shit.

                                                                Zidane, Conte, Loew perhaps? Give me someone else. This game was obvious that United has individual talent, but not cohesive talent. Liverpool played as a team and destroyed us. Not to say they are without individual talent, because every level has a world class player, but it was obvious they are team first. It shouldn't have gotten that bad in the first place, but there is no need to lose tempers and start attempting (and succeeding in some cases) in injuring the other team.

Signing Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips seemed like smart business to go after. They could have gotten it done. To English guys at Man United? Banks and schools would have closed.

                                                                  I am going to enjoy this Liverpool side as much as I possible can. This all probably goes to shit when Klopp leaves and the club is worth so much now that the only people who can probably afford to buy it next are either from China or Saudi Arabia. We had to sit through Tom Hicks and Roy Hogsdon. I take none of what I'm seeing for granted.

Signing Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips seemed like smart business to go after. They could have gotten it done. To English guys at Man United? Banks and schools would have closed.

                                                                    I am going to enjoy this Liverpool side as much as I possible can. This all probably goes to shit when Klopp leaves and the club is worth so much now that the only people who can probably afford to buy it next are either from China or Saudi Arabia. We had to sit through Tom Hicks and Roy Hogsdon. I take none of what I'm seeing for granted.
                                                                    Exactly. There were bigger needs than Sancho or Ronaldo. There was, reportedly, mutual interest in Rice. Reportedly interest in Neves at the end of the window. Any help would have been huge. Instead I'm sitting here watching McFred give the ball away too easily.

                                                                    Liverpool is a fun team to watch, I'd rather them win the PL than just about anyone else at this point (of those who have a shot). Salah might just break the bank, but he's showing he's worth it.

However good Ronaldo is or was, his presence in that boot room was going to go one of two ways. Ole refuses to sub him off and I've seen matches where DeGea covers more ground. There need to be front office changes before anything can move forward, and that is frustrating.

                                                                      Liverpool need to get a deal done soon with Salah. The price is going up every week. I'd rather they invest in him than worry about transfers. He'll play well into his thirties.

                                                                      The Brentford, City and Athletico matches worry me that Liverpool are prone to giving up goals. That won't bode well in the title race against Chelski and Citah, who are both very good defensively. Having dropped points at home to both doesn't bode well down the line. The battle for 4th should be something.

A lot of signs are pointing to Conte, I've seen Zidane's name get thrown in (probably waiting for France job). I've also seen Brendan Rodgers and even Ten Hag, but I highly doubt either of those two leave mid year.

Ole is a former player and there seems to be a great deal of sentiment for him.

They don't know how to press, they don't know when to drop, Ole at the Wheel stands there and looks like he has no idea what is going on. Firmino and Keita absolutely carved them apart. That back four looked like four guys who had never met before just showing up at a park to have a fuck about for a couple of hours. Paul Scholes called it after the Atalanta match earlier in the week. He said Jurgen probably watched that and was rubbing his hands together waiting for Sunday.

I don't know much about Ten Hag, but Ajax is such a well run organization that it might be a little bit exciting. Not sure who else is out there.

                                                                                  I have always maintained that I'd prefer Messi to Ronaldo because Messi is way less selfish. I don't think there is any question about that now. Ronaldo is a poacher now, and maybe even a really good one, but his presence at United is going to hold them back. Top four could be a real battle for them now.

                                                                                  ten Hag could have his options. I am not sure if I'd take Barca or United if I were him. I'd probably run to the prince at Newcastle.

Then any time gers are down in key games here comes a red or a penalty that shouldn't even have been a foul to begin with... if you all get a sight of today's penalty call... get ready for a good laugh
