Kind of reminds me of Paulie from the Rocky movies....though not as cool.
This still feels like a bad dream. Running home to watch the fellas on ESPNFC absolutely shit on this team
I'm still livid.
Final 3 games came against Honduras, Panama, and Trinidad.
Somehow they only managed 4 points out of those games
I feel sad right now, but I still love my team. I feel even more sad to those still not supporting US soccer
I think you're right about what needs to happen but I don't buy that it will. There's too many MLS investors at this point that want the ROI they were promised buying into a franchise model. The rate of expansion they've had is almost ponzi scheme level. With all the new teams over the last few years, no one is gonna want to switch to a pro/reg system where A) they might not get their ROI and if they do, it'll be a long ways off (longer than what MLS originally promises under the current model) and B) They'll actually have to spend their own money to succeed in a pro/reg, which is such a drastically different concept for American sports owners to wrap their heads around. Pro sports teams in America are basically luxury items to owners. You buy them, you make money regardless. But in pro/reg, you have to win to be profitable and to win, you have to spend. That's gonna be one hell of a tough sell to all the investors
So... the U-17 team is looking really good. The future can't get here soon enough. I can't wait for Gulati to hire a new manager that will leave all that talent on the bench in favor of MLS players
STILL LMFAO at this
