It actually is potentially a big loss for us. He tore it up in the Mexican league -- I think he made the All XI. We don't have many with his technical skill on the team.

Jan camp is ahead soon...we end with a friendly against BIH. Like all Jan camps...this one is filled with just youngsters from North America. A few people will get a chance to make their first statement for inclusion going forward.

I think there needs to be a natural law discussion about soccer. In some countries, they rever their players as living gods. Others, like the USA, not so much.

We only have one who could even sniff diety in Pusilic. The rest of them aren't world class, even grading on a curve.

What a horrible flipping hire for USMNT president

What a crock of ****

Nothing will change. We will continue to put money and the MLS ahead of national team success

No one denies those two bought their way in. But then the US decided they were going to clean up FIFA. So now what?

That's exactly why S.A. won't vote for us. We called them on their fraud and they are taking their ball and going home.

FIFA is a joke. I just as soon quit dealing with them as much as possible.

We have the best infrastructure of any nation in the world to host the event - particularly now they expanded the size to 48. We generate the most money when we host it. Unlike Qatar we don't have to use forced slave labor to build stadiums and have dozens of people die doing it.

If FIFA doesn't want that, screw them.

Let's say we do get the World Cup. What happens when Iran qualifies?

Of course Lallana gets hurt less than a week before the first leg against MUFC. Klopp doesn't sound positive about it at all

I respect his talent and don’t dislike him but I don’t really like him either. The only two guys I like on Barca are Vermaelen and Rakitic
