Official 2017-18 Soccer Thread

Post by Turtleneck on 2017-08-11, 13:05

I do not know what this thread should be about. What I do know is that kickball will not be discussed here. Maybe it could be about politics or something else that is rather non-controversial. This thread will be shaped by the posters (so long as it is not about soccer).

You guys remember when turtleneck tried to start a thread suggesting he didn't love soccer? Lololololol

For the haters- Seriously though, a new season is starting. Pick a team, commit to them like you went to school there or something. Watch all of their games. Get to know the players. Learn to care if they win or not. If you do that, you'll honesty begin to love the sport. Plus at the end of the season we got another World Cup coming. You'll know some stuff going in and love it.

If nothing else... what the fuck else are you doing Saturday or Sunday morning?

Im a huge Liverpool fan, so you should pick them :)

But really, all premier league (England) games are on tv, so one of them. The other leagues are good too, but you might not be able to watch so investing is harder.

For premier league teams, there are 20, id pick one of the bigger teams since they have a chance to win shit. Of those-

1) Liverpool- the best really. Michigan State.
2) Spurs- they're pretty good but haven't actually gotten over the hump and won. Think of like Wisconsin or something.
3) Chelsea- they won last year and in 2015 so if you're bandwagon I guess. Ohio state.
4) Arsenal- they've Arsenal. I don't know want to say. They are fine I guess. Nebraska.
5) Man City- they're owned by big middle eastern money and can buy lots of players who are really good. I don't think it's a bad choice if you don't pick Liverpool. Penn state....(if you ignore the child rape thing)
6) Man United- assholes. Only like them if you want to be terrible like Miami Spartan. Michigan.
7) Everton- I don't know if they really belong In a list with the other 6, but they have a lot of popularity in America. A lot of American ex players, but none currently. Northwestern.

There are 13 more teams, but other than west ham or I guess Leicester I can't in good conscious suggest one of them. The thing is, there's this thing called relegation. Every year the bottom three teams get knocked down a division to effectively the MAC, so if you pick a team that that happens to you're sorta fucked. Not all of the 11 teams I haven't mentioned are really at immediate risk for that, but they aren't on top either. They are the middling teams who just sorta fish around between 8th and 15th every year.

What's the o/u on total number of goals by all teams in a single season? 12?

Go with the team that averages more than a goal per game. I mean, a 1.27 gpg average means the offense is on fire. Find them and love them forever.

Earlier today was like the Thursday night NFL opener. But then tomorrow morning and Sunday morning. Most games are gonna be Saturday and Sunday mornings... problem for you is that most of them start at 8am (bullshit mountain time) so that might be an issue.

I ain't gonna hate on that choice. Enjoy your new found fandom! You'll find that greenway is sometimes wrong (4-3 was today's game... if each goal is a touchdown and since the game is 2 hours instead of 4 it's similar to half of a 56-42 football game) but sometimes he's right that it's gonna be 1-0. That's more like watching a baseball game. Which is also good.

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.

Matty every Liverpool game is going to be like 5-4 if they don't do something about that defense. Between coutinho and whoever they could buy with all that cash I'm really curious to see what the team is going to look like in a few weeks.

I won't mind selling him if we can get loads of quality, hopefully FSG will reinvest. Moreno is not the answer at LB, and Matip and Lovren are 2nd team defenders. Need VVD and another top quality CB. Would like to see less of Henderson, and get a new holding midfielder. That offense tho.... scored three and actually should of had 5 or more.

Agree with all of this... now that I've watched him play I'm excited about Salah. I mean, I knew he was fast but damn. There was one play they didn't score on where mane fed him coming off the wing... dude was like a fuckin gazelle going down the sideline.

For coutinho- it sucks because I love watching that guy play, but if he really wants to leave I guess you just have to let him and spend the money on more pressing needs.
