I'm skeptical. Best theory I've seen on Twitter is that it allows Cannon to make more overlaps and covers more adventurous runs from McKennie. Not sure I believe that, but something to watch for.Mystified how Tyler Boyd went from starter to “behind Roldan on the wing depth chart”.
I think he was pretty poor in the Curacao game, and I think he's more useful in a game where the U.S. has the bulk of possession and is trying to convert chances near goal, vs. needing to control the ball more.Mystified how Tyler Boyd went from starter to “behind Roldan on the wing depth chart”.
Their fans travel well, and tickets are expensive. Also lot of Mexican-Americans support El Tri, and if they live in the mid-west this might be their only chance to see them for several yearscan anyone explain to me why this is an overwhelmingly pro-mexico crowd given it's a pretty nice sunday night at field? thx.
MEX reasonably expected to be in this final. The U.S. looked terrible in the friendlies leading up to the GC, so it would make sense for U.S. fans to take a wait-and-see attitude. It was 60-40 or 65-35 in '07, so absolutely there are U.S. fans who will attend a GC final at Soldier Field.
The Mexican national team is the most popular soccer team (club or country) in the United States, and they are playing in the city with the second-largest Mexican-American population in the US.
There’s 600k+ Mexicans/Mexican-Americans in Chicago, a few hundred thousands more in the collar counties. And they support El Tri much, much better than US fans do for our team.
Chicago? Doesn’t sound right
