    Liverpool 2019-2020: Let's Talk About Six, Baby

    It's also the fun Nike innovation of being the same shit everyone else gets, yes? It's another spin on the "teal/turquoise and blobs" thing that Spurs and I think a few other teams have also had in some form in the past few years.

    Football Manager 2020

    My weird thing every year is to take Boston United (because ha, Boston but the other Boston) and see how far I can get them up the English pyramid from their current spot in the 6th tier. So far, it's 2025 and we're way in front in League Two, but with an ill-advised stadium redevelopment that...

    MLS 2020: A Quarter Century of Soccer

    Just when I think MLS is doing a good job straightening out its rules, I get reminded that a team can have the “discovery rights” on a high profile player 12 years into his career.

    Major League Soccer Offseason 2019-20: Zlexit

    The best way to do it in the end will be to do something US teams have failed to do and just exist for a century or so. Then us who are being fussy about it will be dead and whatever dumb name it is will just be the way it's always been, problem solved. I mean, we're all here because we like a...

    Major League Soccer Offseason 2019-20: Zlexit

    I also at least give both of those Boring United FC teams credit for at least getting their Euro-style "the team name is boring, but we call it a different thing" names to stick. "Five Stripes" and "Loons" both honestly work for me. The one that's truly a searing nothingness is Orlando, for...

    Major League Soccer Offseason 2019-20: Zlexit

    Real Salt Lake to me is like the Utah Jazz, where it's sucked super bad enough for long enough that it now kind of rules. I don't think the sin of INSERT CITY HERE United FC is so much the Euro poser question, which I suspect most regular people just don't care about. It's the boringness.

    Tottenham Hotspur 2019-20: Jose can you see?

    Given how many games he's had this season, the only other conclusion I could even think is that he's a long ways off from match-fitness, rather than completely washed as an athelete. If he's that bad against mid-tier EPL competition though, they can't afford to let him play back into...

    Americans Abroad 2019-20: A New Hope

    Gio Reyna just opened his Dortmund account with a disgustingly good goal in the Pokal.

    Intrigued at the idea of him with a few years of Italian defensive seasoning.

    Agreed, but that guy was already gone

    Up 2 - 0 of course, so I guess Farve is maybe a better manager than I am.

    Dortmund not starting Haaland seems perverse.

    Americans Abroad 2019-20: A New Hope

    Yes, constantly, but they’re actually on an uptick in form right now that has them back in the playoff places.

    In less silly news, he apparently made a nice run to draw defenders away for Grealish’s equalizer.

    I hope he makes it somewhere so fans can figure out a chant to the tune of the Indiana Jones theme song
