Once Daniel start playing more aggressive (confident) he could tear this league up.

Agree, it seems to me like hes trying to play too safe.

He just hit the post on a free kick.

i think ultemately FIFA and the world cup as we know it will crash. There is a lot of money involved and some people will always try to get more than they are currently getting.

Havalanch and now blatter have taken away power and money from europe and try to redistribute it to smaller regions, Jack was instrimental in this and UEFA has been pissed ever since.

They always complain about spots in the world cup money etc.

money keeps them quiet but eventually you need to pay more and more.

The pendulum will swing back and forth.

I wondering..but I not so sure.
Some friends of mine were debating about their hatred of international football. I actually love it...because it more or less..requires more work than simply sinking money into something to achieve success.

International football has as its highlight the World Cup. Not every team has a chance of qualifying once or if at all. But in this kind of environment, it makes it even harder to participate at the "pinacle" because if you not a player on the roster of any of these elite have no chance. You then have to hope that your performances in other teams gives you an opportunity to get into one of those teams..and then achieve that success.

Compare that to the World Cup where you have a chance to put things in place and prepare. You could start youth on a platform and then have a generation that can make it. Yes money is needed to achieve doh have obscene amounts being thrown around for no reason. It cant be"xyz is the next big thing..throw money at him and get him."

I dunno if I looking at it too simplistically...but thats how i feel. I not sure how to feel about this proposal to be honest. It just makes it more and more about the power of the dollar.

Think about it....if you ask a player which he would rather win...UEFA Champions League or a FIFA World Cup...which would you think he would pick?

I most ask are some of your friends british? It seems like mostly only brits have a distain for international football, maybe cause their teams suck. You never hear Brazillians, Spanish, etc.. talking about retiring from international football early and that international football sucks. Everyone acknowledges that the Champions League is a higher quality than international football but most non brits still enjoy it best.

Funny think is i think this will be awful for British football because it will create even more of a disconnect. First foreign owners then there will be less and less brits on any of these teams. You think Man City & Arsenal care about having British talent, and Inter Milan care about having Italian players. These clubs will make their own rules and i guarantee you that it will not include a quota on player nationalities.

Keon Daniel is the 10 for me, hes dynamite on set pieces and picking a pass. Its also interesting to observe how the union play him. Although he primarily is a left winger it seems like he has the green light to slide into the central spot behind Ruiz. Since it happens a couple times during each game i think its their plan B before they make a sub.

Im excited to find out how Winchester and Britto work with each other. I was wondering why Vranes didnt play them at the same time during the U-20s. If these two play well together it could bode well for the future of the national team.

Even though I am a new member, I love this site, cant do without it now. I am addicted.

Thanks Flex and respect to Tallest.

I've always been a fan of Suarez but this guy is even surprising me right now. Easily the best player on the field right now. As I type D Forlan now score.

If there is a qualification process involved to select 6 teams...then, to be honest with you, I give caribbean teams VERY LITTLE chance at qualifying. Maybe Jamaica can do it consistently (even that is debatable), but overall, i wouldnt expect more than one caribbean team to overcome the likes of Mexico, USA, Canada, CRC, HON, home and away.

1) Mexico
2) USA
3) Honduras
4) Costa Rica
5) Canada
6) CFU and the rest of UNCAF battles for #6

Im surprised that you would say that. Jamaica is right now a way better team than Canada, in fact yall have beat them in a home & home in the last qualifying cycle. So unless they are a guaranteed qualifier then they are defiantly not a favorite to qualify to me.

This article was tweeted by Grant Wahl.

Under this format the international schedule would be:
2015-Copa Americas
2016-Gold Cup
2017-Confed Cup

Would love to see this happen, more games vs better opposition. Of course we'd have to qualify.

Paraguay played for penals for the 2nd straight game and won both. I hope Uruguay gave them a cut ass on Sunday.

True i guess i didnt respect the fact that they got here. I really was hoping Paraguay would play the 3 strikers and attack in this game from the start but they kinda disappointed me.  Course it dont help that Santa Cruz always getting injured.

Ven vs Par is an example of why you cant have too many upsets in a tourney. When you get rid of all the talented teams and both teams are primarily counter teams the game is awful. Uruguay can get away with bossing some games cause the have 2 world class players but Paraguay and Venezuela got none. I guess at this point Uruguay will deserve the Copa if the win the final. :-\

Football / Re: Should PK Shootout be eliminated
« on: July 18, 2011, 10:11:25 AM »
I used to be a big fan of the PK it is tense and dramatic.

The rule change that allows the GK to move has allowed the Save percentage to increase and nowawdays a significant amount of PK are in fact "missed" or saved

Teams still play for draws with the hope that they can win in the PKs.

i think is time for a change away from the PK.

If PK were to be eliminated

Replaced with 30 Mins extra time

then sudden death extra time where 1st goal wins it may in fact be a better way to declare a winner.

Argentina, Brazil and USA all dominated the game and drove forward to make the game more exciting only to get piped from the spot.

By eliminating the PK this may in fact make the game more attacking and exciting since this lifeline will not be there for defensive teams.

Keep playing the game give a few additional subs or something and allow the game to continue to the end.

Sooner or later a winner will be determined.

the down side is the game may go on for hours but that is part of the excitement.

Sound like you been watching ESPN. They been talking about that all morning probably because the U.S lost last night. Because i didnt hear all the fuss when they beat Brazil. But anyway like most everyone else i think they should go back to golden goal format. The 2002 world cup was real drama because of it.

Muslera won that game for his team his boss saves kept Uruguay in it. Something tells me a big club might try a last second bid for him before his transfer to turkey goes through.

Football / Jake Thomson on trial with Southend United
« on: July 11, 2011, 11:45:32 AM »
After a day of activity at the Shrimpers training ground Saturday that had some of the faithful with their cameras snapping away, (see below on how to see them), the word seems to be that former Southampton and Exeter City midfielder Jake Thompson did enough to be included in the Dartford friendly Monday evening.
This was backed up by a tweet from Echo journalist Chris Phillips: 'Just been told midfielder Jake Thomson may figure as a trialist for Blues in friendlies at Dartford and Wakering this week.'

After all batista said about the was Arg played at the WC i thought he would have answers. But all he did was change the team from an attack heavy team to a defense heavy team. Funny thing is even with 7 defenders their defense still sucks.

Football / West Ham target released Bolton wing-back Samuel
« on: July 04, 2011, 12:58:42 PM »
West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce hopes to snap up Bolton Wanderers wing-back Jlloyd Samuel.

The Mirror says Allardyce wants to agree a deal for 30-year-old Samuel – who is a free agent after being released by Wanderers boss Owen Coyle – and he could join the ex-Reebok colony at Upton Park.

Trinidad and Tobago international Samuel signed for Bolton under Gary Megson’s management.

But Allardyce knows him from his time at his former club and also when the ­ defender started at Aston Villa.
