If he doesn't give a shit about Europa then why is he starting Cech and not your 3rd in line keeper?

I feels like the only time i see Giroud score it’s a high quality goal. Usually a nice flick or volley.

Lindelof has been fucking terrible. Dude couldn't judge a fucking 50/50 ball. Jones stays on and we win.

Pep threw out some wacky lineups at Bayern. Didn't he do an all sub-six foot back three with Alaba as a holding midfielder that one year when Boateng was hurt? But, when you have that kind of lineup, you need to lean on a guy like Thiago more.

Spoilered so the stereotypical American fans of some boring top 4 team doesn't have to see. I want to make sure you can seemlessly stroll through and spout off about "false nines" and "taking the piss".

Spoiler: show
Eastern

1. Toronto
2. Man City
3. Chicago
4. Montreal
5. Metro
6. Orlando
-------------------
7. Atlanta
8. D.C.
9. Philly
10. Columbus
11. New England


Western

1. Dallas
2. LA
3. Seattle
4. SKC
5. Colorado
6. Portland
-----------------
7. Vancouver
8. RSL
9. San Jose
10. Houston
11. Minnesota


I have very little faith that LA will be that good. Onalfo has a horrible track record (including GII), they have a very mediocre def. mid fielder playing right back; the #2 center back is in his second year and was far from great last year and there is no left back with any MLS experience (and very little USL experience at that) - and Cole is 34 and super injury prone. JJ could be a good signing if he can survive, but I don't know if I can see him staying fit for an entire season. I think LA will be lucky to squeeze into the playoffs this year, unless we get some crazy mid-season DP but either way, they will be leaking goals left and right. Saturday against Dallas could get real ugly, real quick.


Very little faith? Dog you've got one of the best midfields in the league on paper right now.


biggest surprises this season:

1) the west being crap
2) Atlanta being good
3) Precourt trying to move the Crew

Having said that:

Spoiler: show
Metro def Chicago
Atlanta def Columbus

Vancouver def SJ
SKC def Houston
-----------------------------
Toronto def Metro
Atlanta def NYCFC

SKC def Portland
Seattle def Vancouver
-----------------------------
Toronto def Atlanta
SKC def Seattle
-----------------------------
SKC def Toronto

None of this will actually happen and we'll get SJ vs Metro or something

I was talking to a German guy about this recently and he said it's kind of understood that Gotze has legitimate psychological issues. Like Stephen Ireland type stuff that isn't debilitating but affects his performance.

Also that flare shit above is so embarrassing. Time to grow up.

Man, Eddie Nketiah might really end up being something. He's also the first player born after Wenger took over to score for Arsenal.

Was thinking about going to Manchester to see a United game but the ticket prices are fucking outrageous. I might travel back to Italy to see Napoli play again. Not dangerous at all unless you're dealing with the D3 goons and their shitty rivalries.
