I was just going to turn the NCAA tournament thread into a soccer thread. But this will do.

We'll see... pulisic isn't going to happen, aubeutermaysjsjdyang (look I don't know how to spell it) won't either prolly. They might even up with gotze after all, which seems like a waste of money but who am I to question things.

yeah Pulisic tbh is worth more than BD will get paid and they ain't no none of them dummies.  AuddyBangYang is going away from Klopp. Not a fan of Gotze, why can't we target a LB or CB of world class quality?

We is Liverpool

this is anti message board etiquette of me after offering sort of an opinion but I'm still understanding how transfer markets work exactly. Im starting to get it. You see, my story is that after the 2014 World Cup I wanted to continue loving soccer instead of forgetting for 4 years. As a first generation Italian, I was very happy that one team got rid of the asshole that bit a guy and signed balotelli.

I now know that that was a very very very very stupid opinion. But that's how I found myself supporting Liverpool. Also I'm just saying that I'm still sorta learning. At least with transfer rumors. I'm not reliable as I can't decipher bullshit from real yet.

friend of mine was a big soccer player, I watched a lot of matches with him in my teen years and liked Steven Gerrard for some reason (2002ish... i was 15). I guess his story of playing for his hometown team and being the captain hit me real deep. Researched the team more and fell in love. I gained about 5 Stevie G jerseys till about 2006 and now have about 12 Liverpool jerseys.

I was hoping this thread would reinvigorate the passionate contempt Turtleneck holds for soccer enough to revive him from his winter slumber. Maybe Travis can dump some cold water down into the pit and wake up his ass.

This is so stupid. For smaller countries like when S. Korea and Japan jointly hosted it, or when Switzerland and Austria (?) jointly hosted the Euros, fine. But the US has enough quality facilities to host an entire World Cup in each timezone, let alone in the whole country, even with the expanded number of teams.

Just seems like the US thinks the world doesn't want to give the Americans another WC, so we are trying to tie in other countries.

Not to mention one of the complaints in 94 was that the various games were so spread out making it difficult for fans to follow their team around. So let's make it even more expansive. As much as I'd love for the US to host another WC, this is a lame attempt.

To be clear why USA not bidding alone to host WC26: FIFA wants to know 100% that fans/players of, say, Iran (regular WC team) will be let in

That's not likely the actual reason... apparently 60 of the 80 games would be in the US, including everything from the quarterfinals on. So if one of those teams made it there (not likely but I wouldn't be too comfortable with that big of a hole in their plan if I were in charge) they'd have a problem. 

I think the whole thing is kinda stupid, but whatever. Id be fine with it just to get some exposure here, decent game times, and to have coverage jammed down greenways throat.

No doubt, it's a special thing having it in your country.  Seeing all of the games at the Silverdome in 94, including the US, was one of the best sports experiences of my life.  And it will drive the haters up the wall, just as it did back then.  Win-win.

I'm just selfish and don't want to share it.  Especially not with Mexico (our biggest soccer rivals), and with Canada ( who could never qualify for a World Cup on their own).

Edit:  BTW, game times likely wouldn't be any different than they are when the WC is in Europe (or when it was in South Africa).  There were no evening games in 94, as they had to make it watchable for Europe.  Last time in Brazil, they had games a little later than in the US in 94, but few if any carried over into Prime Time, IIRC. That's the middle of the night in Europe, and FIFA needs the cheddar from those TV contracts.

Who is excited about soccer at Comerica Park this summer???

I mean, I'm gonna go. It'll be neat. I didn't go to either of the games in Ann Arbor for obvious reasons. (Mostly because I went to tigers games those nights instead. This is much more convenient.)

No offense, but that seems like an awful venue to watch a soccer game, as it would at any baseball stadium. Kind of like when they put football games in baseball stadiums and you have areas where it's 30 yards + between the sideline and the first row of seats. But I guess it's not unlike some national team stadiums which are multi-purpose, and are used for track and field (which really puts the fans far away, especially on the ends). I always thought those kind of suck for the high level of games that are sometimes played there.

So check the layout of the field before buying tickets, as there are going to be some really shitty seats that would otherwise be good for Tigers games.

I'm highly offended.

Not really though... it'll just be fun to go to a game. Without an MLS team that's not really an option at all. I'm sure wherever I sit it wont be that great, since I won't pay out the nose for it. Though, some of the standing room spots might be okay. Here's the layout...

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.
