Re: World Cup Every 2yrs: Yes or No...

Like the idea of an October window for international games.

Would like to see them explore the extension of this to the continental championships: One summer for all continental championships

I'm hearing 6-8 weeks for an ankle dislocation.
Ankles rarely dislocate without some kind of fracture.
The forces involved are great.
I'll be happy to have him back in January.


Ankles are a tough one. Will be surprised if he comes back this season...

Re: USA NT in crisis?

Hmmm. After a wonderful Gold Cup and Nations Cup, the USA’s NT appears to be in real trouble in these WCQs. Honduras is toying with them in the first 49 mins of the game You've been getting it wrong a lot. Football is 90 mins..there are 14 long games each. USA will qualify easily. Belhalter is a ve...

Re: RE: Maduka Okoye (GK) Reviews

However, the concession of a goal, often requires greater analysis than a simple finger pointing. Yes, goals can be the direct result of goalkeeping howlers, but most goals are the result of larger problems and failures, before the ball ever gets to the goalie, however much we might expect them to ...

RE: Maduka Okoye (GK) Reviews

On the goal, he clearly gambled on the shot going to his wide side, which is often never a good decision. Most GK coaches will teach focus on the fundamentals FIRST; which in this case was simple. Cover your near post! He failed clearly.

@TXJ - Those are some of the details that count against Rohr and will be exposed vs better opposition Add the spacing issues when out of possession, set plays etc However, I'm a firm believer in the glass being half full.....

Re: Cape Verde 1 Nigeria 2

Last 10 minutes remind me of NIG vs ARG (WC) and NIG vs ALG (ANC Semi - Final). Inviting pressure, upon pressure! Nothing wrong with that as long as you use it successfully to play on the counter. In this game, it was a sound tactic, even if it comes with butterflies... My problem is that we did no...

Re: 3 takeaways from the game

Rohr is one damn lucky coach, his game management as we already know is zero... We won't go far in the world cup with this man... I'm glad his contract is running down, how many months left again? Musa has got to stay far away from this team if he truly loves his nation. The likes of Nwakali or any...
