    Paying Philly back for the Gold Cup disaster? Regardless, I am pumped. A Saturday too.

    Nice! I'm jealous.
    Final at MetLife, though 0% chance the US is playing.

    Looks like your NYCFC has the 5th toughest schedule, and the toughest in the Eastern Conference. My Sounders have the 3rd toughest schedule in the league.

    yea see our problem is the Yankees, needing to use their stadium for baseball games and shit ... selfish bastards. /sarcasm.

    I'd LOVE to know more about how/why the schedules are done. I don't see why Seattle has such a difficult schedule at all.

    Jordan Morris still deciding whether to play in MLS or Germany. Really hoping he decides to go overseas. Sounds like he is doing pretty well training with Werder Bremen....had an assist in a friendly today.

    As a Sounders fan, I have mixed emotions obviously. I'm sure the money will be much better in Germany. And the level of play is better. But I hate seeing young US guys heading overseas to ride the bench or be loaned out to lower division teams when they could stay at home and actually get serious playing time. In Seattle he'd still have the ability to work with Martins, Dempsey, Evans, Valdez, Ivanschitz and other world class players and have an immediate impact.And of course the selfish side likes to see homegrown players playing for their clubs.

    I feel like even playing in some of the 2nd tier leagues in Europe is better than the MLS. But I do agree...definitely don't want to see a young guy like Morris go to Europe and sit on the bench. He needs to be playing regularly. I just think WAY too many USMNT players are playing in MLS.

    Agreed, the best thing going for the USMNT right now is Johnson's success in Bundesliga, and Cameron to a lesser extent in the Premier League. If Dempsey and Bradley are the core of the team for the next world cup and have spent 4 years playing in the MLS, we are fucked.

    Sad that only 2 of the U.S. regulars play in Europe. You can count Howard/Guzan in there too. Altidore coming back to MLS at such a young age was an awful move too. Hopefully some of these young guys like Green, Zalelem, etc.. start to live up to the hype and can be major contributors for this next WC cycle.

    Yeah, man. I mean, Dempsey is my favorite US soccer player ever probably (outside of my childhood idols in the 94 team), but he is going to be at the end of his career after playing in the MLS for 4 years..forget about it.

    Can't count out Brooks and hopefully Yedlin gets more European experience before the next world cup too. There is a good group of young kids, but relying on them is playing with fire. I hope Brooks can earn himself some time in Germany.

    Oh yeah, I love Dempsey too. Hard to see him being much of a factor for the next WC when he'll be 34-35 years old. I'd be surprised if he's even on the team.

    I did forget about Yedlin. Nice to see him playing somewhat regularly with Sunderland. And it would be really nice to see Brooks get some regular PT in Germany.

    Yeah, I was thinking Morris would follow Yedlin's example of getting a year under his belt as a starter over here before heading overseas. My concern with Morris' situation is that he's just coming out of college. Guys in Europe his age have already been playing professionally for years, and he's been playing abbreviated college schedules, so doesn't have nearly the experience. I do hope if he decides on Werder Bremen that it works out for him. I'll always cheer for American players abroad, and will always cheer for homegrown players from my club's youth academy.

    Did anyone get Copa tickets?
    The MLS season ticket holders presale is only by venue, which sucks. But the bright side is I've got a guaranteed ticket for the quarterfinal at MetLife, and an entry into a lotto drawing for the actual final. Here's hoping I have better luck in that lottery than pearl jams.

    I'm going to try for Philly tomorrow. The USA game is on a Saturday, and as long as it's a day game i should have no problems getting the mega bus there and back in a day. (I'm cheap.)

    Naturally they try to squeeze every dollar out of you. I would expect nothing less with CONCACAF involved.

    CAN I PURCHASE INDIVIDUAL TICKETS TO MATCHES?
    Due to expected high demand, fans are encouraged to purchase Copa Venue Passes in the early sales period. If any tickets remain, individual tickets would be made available at a later date.


    On the other hand if you really only want the one game it's likely that many people bought venue passes and won't be using them for every game so you might be able to get them second hand.

    There is absolutely no way Philadelphia is going to sell out of venue passes. They are obviously guaranteeing you one game (US in Philly/Chicago, Mexico, Brazil or Argentina in other place) to try to fill the stadium for other random games, which isn't going to happen. The chance of 70k people buying 3 games of tickets to see 1 US game, at least here in Philly, is 0%.

    Some good things happening from some young U.S. players. Pulisic made his debut for Dortmund today....pretty amazing that a 17 year old American is playing in the Bundesliga for one of the top teams. And Miazga signing with Chelsea....sounds like he won't be put on loan either. Good stuff.

    Did anyone get Copa tickets?
    The MLS season ticket holders presale is only by venue, which sucks. But the bright side is I've got a guaranteed ticket for the quarterfinal at MetLife, and an entry into a lotto drawing for the actual final. Here's hoping I have better luck in that lottery than pearl jams.

    I'm going to try for Philly tomorrow. The USA game is on a Saturday, and as long as it's a day game i should have no problems getting the mega bus there and back in a day. (I'm cheap.)

    I grabbed MetLife venue for my family via US Soccer presale. Great seats. A Friday and a Sunday. Looking forward to it. Not worried about quarter final. It's actually set up hoping Brazil-US as it B1 (Brazil) - A2 (US?). And if not, whoever wins Brazil's group will be great. As for group game, it's Brazil's group pot 2 and 3 (so not Brazil). Between Columbia, Chile, Uruguay, etc. odds are a great team and atmosphere. Unless these 3 teams are in different pots which makes no sense (I'm also probably forgetting someone).

    Plus, venue pass gets you in lottery for the final. I lost the pj MSG lottery that I would gladly trade for winning that one. Psyched my sons will get to see real world class soccer right at home and not the drek MLS is carting out there. Praying for the soccer gods to smile on us and grant us finals ducots.
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    Perfect ball, perfect header. Took way too long to score

    Holy shit balls. Miazga made the bench for the PSG game. Pretty much cheering for injuries right about now.

    Yeah, couldn't believe that. Chelsea defense is pretty thin right now with a few injuries. Doubt he would get in there today, but I'm sure he'll be seeing some action soon.
