The only problem is, he doesn't seem to want to be that good, or at least put in the work necessary to be that good. He's lazy, he takes stretches and entire games off. He had personality clashes with Pep at Barca, and a lot of that probably had to with the fact that all too often he acted as a turn-and-shoot player, just standing there waiting for someone to give him the ball, something that clearly conflicts with what he was told to do and conflicts with Pep's system in general.

So overall I think its hard to gauge him. He can be nearly unstoppable, but he can also disappear for long stretches, seemingly based only on whether or not he feels up for it. Personally, from his time at Barca, if you can motivate him he's worth whatever fee he may cost, but otherwise I wouldn't want to rely on him to win titles.
Yeah, that's why Ibra wins so many league titles, he doesn't need to reach that upper level of his talent against most sides and so can crush most teams while on cruise control. Then he can occasionally raise his play for the big games. In knockout competitions where he has to raise his play game after game he fails. It's a team sport but Ibra holds his team back in those cups.

The American defenders called up for the WC qualifiers are going to get eaten up by Mexico. That game might get ugly.

I'm not even worried about Mexico. I fully expect for the Americans to come out of that game with zero points. But Costa Rica is going to be trouble too. The only reason I'm not expecting a loss in that game too is because it's in Colorado.

Yeah I wasn't expectin to get any points against Mexico but I also don't want to see the team embarassed. If they don't get any points against Costa Rica then we're in a world of trouble.

Yeah, they would have very little margin of error. They'd pretty much have to get 8 points from their games against Panama and Jamacia, which is no guarantee, and hope for a lot of ties or Mexico just killing everybody.

Rumors have Citeh offering Dortmund 60 mil for Reus and Gundogan. Doubt that's enough or that those two would force the move through, but good god would that suck.

Interesting article from ESPN about some rumblings of dissatisfaction with Klinsmann: http://espnfc.com/news/story/_/id/13...ership?cc=5901

I think Lalas and Twellman bring up some good points in the video segments. Change can sometimes rub players the wrong way, the potential clash between the German-American players vs. Mexican-American players vs. old guard American players all having to coexist now. But winning cures everything so here's to hoping for a win on Friday.

Also, this video makes me really wish we had a big indoor culture in the US. Not only because its a lot of fun, but also because it forces you to refine the touch and spacial skills that exclusively outdoor players might not master. I've lived with a bunch of exchange students from the Latin countries (to broadly put it), many of whom say they grew up playing just as much indoor as outdoor. You can tell in their touch and movement skills.

Taylor being called up is basically because no one is left now, but he still deserves it based on the competition remaining.

Yeah that's right, I'm being that guy...

He's not the most talented guy, but he will be the hardest worker in an England shirt. It seems like 90% of them don't care, so that will be a welcome change anyway.

0-2
Rough debut but when we controled the game after 15 minutes we dominated, Belgium still need to focus and concentrate for the entirety of a game and there was some stupid passes but we managed to keep a clean sheet and were clearly better

Courtois was a beast, Van Buyten didn't screw us up, Vertonghen and Vermaelent were good, Witsel, Fellaini, and Dembele won the midfield battle and controled the flow, Hazard played great, De Bruyne was nice, I still dislike Benteke.
Next time I'd like to see Dries Mertens, and Romelu Lukaku play.

So sad for Mignolet, he is a great keeper and do nothing wrong but Courtois is equaly good and play for bigger clubs so I guess he gets the nod.

Was really funny to watch the Costa Rican players complaining about the conditions. I'd still say the conditions on a perfect day in Mexico City are far worse for visiting teams than heavy snow in Colorado.

Yeah, that smog + altitude combo is ridiculous. Pretty crucial for USA to get that win. I'm not expecting any points from the Mexico match, but if we can get anything that would be fantastic. Mexico has been disappointing so far with only 2 points from 2 home matches, but I'm sure they will get up for the USA rivalry.

Report: Costa Rica to file protest on snow

Quote:
"I asked them to stop. They should suspend the ref," Pinto said. "It was an embarrassment. It was an insult to Costa Rica and people coming in here."

"Honestly, it was robbery, a disgrace, I've never played a game in these conditions," midfielder Cristian Bolanos told Reuters. "You couldn't see the ball ... if we had played without snow, we would have won, I am sure."
Did I miss the part where only Costa Rica had to deal with the elements? Sour freaking grapes. The conditions were indeed terrible but no worse than playing on some of those central american or caribbean "fields" some of which could barely support grass. As I mentioned earlier the air quality/elevation of Mexico City's field is more adverse to opponents than snowfall.

It's not that ridiculous of a complaint. Those conditions were horrific, snow up to players' ankles and not being able to see the lines is borderline unplayable. There is no way Azteca is even close to as bad of conditions.
