What, no football (soccer) fans? - Page 43

post #1261 of 1284
That was some performance. On another note Ibisevic (17 goals in half season not too long ago) with two goals for Hertha after a long dry spell, he is baaack.
Also, Darmstadt with first points of the season, I think they'll find it difficult in the top tear and won't last more than one season.

Germany apparently paid bribes for 2006 World Cup.

I don't quite understand the loan business though.

While I don't disagree with that, it shouldn't still be newsworthy. At least in the US. I do want to see the US win the next Olympic gold, but barring that, I really hope Brazil can bring it home while at home. South America needs to get with the times and support their women: success on their own soil, well if that doesn't do it, I don't know what will.

 

What was newsworthy is Wambach retiring shortly after the WH ceremony!

"Playing like a girl means drawing the largest US television audience for any soccer game ever, women or mens..."Thumbs Up

But still having to burn your knees and wreck your ankles and feet on astroturf because the event facilitators are too cheap to sod the stadium for the World Championship MatchThumbs Down

Mourinho should replace Klinsmann.

 

His shelf life is about 2-3 years before he explodes and moves on to another job.

 

But no denying that in 2-3 years at the "new" job he produces results.

It's tough when he views people with such disdain.  I suppose the players eventually figure out he views them the same way, lose respect for him and tune him out.

Brendan Rogers kinda overstayed his welcome..but I never felt like he was a Mourinho-level dic..um..character.  And they've lost some players.

And it spawned, indirectly, the best thing I've ever seen on the internet. I think I watched this about 30 times in a row the other night.

Exactly my point. Look at his coaching history, comes in hot, players are behind him, wins some and then ... Fiasco, disagreements with star players, staff, owners, fans and so on ...

 

Again, all that stands as well as his winning record. The USMNT and US soccer public could use shot in the arm of some short term winning - like qualifying for Russia 2018 or good result at Copa Centenario 2016. As a long(er) term solution - not so sure.

Abby Wambach plays her final game tonight in exhibition in New Orleans.
184 goals. We won't see that again for some time.

Jose Mourinho was canned by Chelsea today. He was hired June, 2013. He won the League Cup only a few months ago. Chelsea is only 1 point above relegation right now.

It had to be done, not that he cares considering what Chelsea owes him (upwards of 40 mil punds?).  I'd love to be fired w/ that package.


It'll be interesting where he goes next, lots of clubs could use him, including some in Italy that have a tradition of winning, but haven't won in a long time.  Also, Pep recently turned down a 280K/week offer, will be interesting to see where he goes next.

 

How sweet would it be to see Chelsea go down!

Swap places with Klinsmann. Everybody needs a piece of America at some time - especially washed out football/soccer personalities. Pele, Beckenbauer, Chinaglia, Beckham, Gerrard, Henry, Villa, Kaka, Pirlo, ... why not dipping into coaching staff ? Oh, wait, Klinsmann ...
