Re: US Men's National Soccer Team Thread: USA #1

Just watching the game now, no idea how (and I've even seen it a few times in the PL w/VAR) where a player falls on top of/through a players back and it isn't a pen.

Not sure about the Davies one where he rounds the GK. Think the ref doesn't give it because it's a pen and a red if he does.

Also surprised no one got sent off when the benches cleared for the scuffle.

Canada could have had 7 or 8 this game. Davies was just on a different level. Like a mix of prime Robben and Walcott.

this translates to a double chance number for the U.S. of ~-290. so according to the betting markets, PAN had a 25% chance of winning the game. as i said after the game, it was a bad result (albeit not a particularly unlikely result).

i'm wondering if the betting markets are properly pricing in the youth of these teams we are starting (if i'm not mistaken, the three games in this window were the second youngest, third youngest, and youngest starting lineups for a U.S. wcq). it's obv a factor as these young players experience clolncacaf wcqs for the first time or first few times.

to be clear, i want GGG out and a stronger manager put in place like everyone else. my issue with LFC is his incessant posting about the general lack of quality MLS players possess. you'd think he'd understand we get it after his three-hundredth post on the matter. smh

Re: US Men's National Soccer Team Thread: USA #1

just watched the CAN PAN highlights. was Herdman trying to track down PAN's manager in the tunnel after the final whistle? what was that all about?

Re: US Men's National Soccer Team Thread: USA #1

CAN has tied USA and MEX away. their most difficult matches are behind them. they have a decent shot at topping the Octagonal imo.

It was weird. While Canada was celebrating with the fans after the match, a bunch of frustrated Panama players were not leaving the pitch and even like 15 minutes after FT were seemingly trying to start something.

hmmm. interesting. Herdman might have seen something and was moving to defuse the tension early on then.

regardless, a great night for CAN soccer. i was impressed with the sheer number of CAN flags being waved in one of the end zones.

Re: US Men's National Soccer Team Thread: USA #1
