    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: WE GOT ALEX MORGAN!

    Lloris has been the same thing, but in a French accent so it maybe sounds cleverer. I doubt it's uniquely "Kane's talks are simple" and more "captains do not give pump up speeches of great literary sophistication"

    NBC / NBC Sports has broadcast rights for a bunch, they’re also all streamable for free on the FA Player app.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: WE GOT ALEX MORGAN!

    I wonder if Dele asking random questions about nonsense is a bit he decided to do for the doc or just a thing he always does? I feel like he does it a few times so far and it’s always been him when it happens

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: WE GOT ALEX MORGAN!

    Spurs could have one of the world’s best women’s teams within 5 years for maybe a Quarter Sissoko. It truly seems like a business no brainer to me as well as the right thing to do from the glory perspective.

    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    I had not realized we'd advanced from "poor technique, poor tactics" to "well developed technique, poor tactics". It's almost enough to give you hope we can get the tactics part.

    MLS 2020: A Quarter Century of Soccer

    You can see the headlights of the truck coming straight for us, there’s nothing we can do to stop it, and on the side of the truck there’s an extremely bland crest with the words HOUSTON UNITED FC. I hope they at least keep the orange.

    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    View: https://mobile.twitter.com/boavisteiro1903/status/1303750767011139585 The corny transfer announcement video is fun. There’s something about seeing our players in the mix with the goofier parts of European football that I like. That, McKennie getting Italian airport treatment (Covid...

    AirPod Pros

    I got a pretty swift replacement on their online thing for the exact same problem, so I do recommend doing that. Of course, my second pair are exhibiting a similar problem, so I need to take my own advice here. It’s frustrating. They do sound better than the regular Airpods and the extra...

    MLS 2020: A Quarter Century of Soccer

    In a league without relegation, is picking up joyless shotless points so much the job though?

    2020 Summer Transfer Window

    I agree with this, but also how many transfer windows in a row could we say the same sentence to so far little effect?

    Americans Abroad 2019-20: A New Hope

    On the plus side, there's opportunity in the Juventus midfield right now if he raises his game. A lot of guys there leaving or injured & underperforming. On the negative side, this smells a lot like a deal done not because of great fit, but in that modern Serie A mode of just picking up assets...

    Hey, the Foxboro Revolutions are playing again!

    He only recently bagged that Euro passport, he hasn't gotten the national team attention he deserves yet, and he's already 26. He's definitely good enough to make an impact in a much higher-level league, but I feel like his age might put him in "a club makes a somewhat laughable $1.5 mil bid...

    Americans Abroad 2019-20: A New Hope

    In other fullback news, Robinson signs for Fulham. EDIT: as TB got in there two posts above, of course. https://www.fulhamfc.com/news/2020/august/20/Antonee-Robinson-Signs More danger of sinking back into the Championship than the rumored Sheffield United move, but probably a better chance of...

    Americans Abroad 2019-20: A New Hope

    The names clubs that seem to actually be interested in Cannon are a bit of a cold shower compared to the "he's a lower tier EPL/Bundesliga starter right now" buzz he gets in some USMNT circles. Probably just age more than anything. Once you're age starts in 2 and doesn’t end in 0 the calculus...

    Champions League 2019-20: The Final Countdown

    They've missed on their beautiful plays that deserve a goal and scored on absolute nonsense. SOCCER!
