Great victory that puts USA into qualification. If Costa Rica gets a draw or loss in their next two games (unlikely) then the USA will be scotch free. They face Trinidad next, and I ain't sweating them.
Wood, Altidore and Pulisic have done amazing things and are working more fluidly and tightly than before. A Gold Cup in the summer, World Cup qualification and maybe a run into the World Cup knockout round seems possible.
Says Game Day, but it's more about the Footie weekend. I'm going to post the fixtures that entertain me, and I encourage everyone to do so as well. It can be any league, but I will try to pick out the best games from the major leagues. I will link a full list of fixtures at the bottom of each thread.
We got some good derbies coming up. Inter vs. Milan, Man Utd vs. Liverpool, Toronto vs. Montreal.
I suspect a lot of tension during the Barça vs. Atleti game. Establishment capital vs. Rouge community. It's not El Classico, but it has the same implications. Diego has never beaten Barcelona, so I'm feeling a strong showing from Catalonia. Barcelona is definitely winning this league.
Manchester Untied is likely to get the W over Liverpool. Despite an inspiring transfer window, Liverpool fail to live up to the hype. Maybe The Ox has a curse that is cast on any team he plays for.
Similar to Liverpool, AC Milan had an amazing transfer window but also failed to live up to expectations. I am hoping for a strong showing from Andre Silva, but want Inter Milan to win. They're a quiet yet dangerous side this season. No one is talking about how they've been in great form and might actually present some competition to Juve.
Toronto vs. Montreal is always a crazy game. Organic and realistic footie action in the MLS is always a rarity. Establishment vs. Rouge Community - always a unique thing.
Dortmund vs. RB Leipzig. Undoubtly Leipzig have fallen the pecking order. Dortmund are serious competition, and are stern contenders this year. I'm hoping for a Leipzig win, since I love them.
2nd week of this shit. I'm probably going to be the only one posting, but I don't really mind. Anyways, per usual, if you do wish to post - post the match(es) you are looking forward, find interesting to or expect to be entertaining.
