what a great age. Its ok i wont hold that against himHe’s 8 and Houston has a MLS team so we have a planned game in August. Hate to say it but he’s learned the rules and gotten some of his skill from playing FIFA on Xbox.
Sorry he loves Barcelona lol
You mean like his baseball seasons now. It’s just crazy how some parents act at these games sometimes.
well he’s been playing FPPS but he wants a more competitive league now. His coach thinks he could handle it too
Come on Clint that camo blazer is ridiculous
That just means it’s a great rivalry!
I’m fine with Mexico soccer, I don’t think they did anything over the line, it was expected to get chippy down the stretch. This game should feel like that.
But the fans clocking players in the head with bottles is just disgusting.
One of the guest analysts on SFC this morning that was really interesting. He said US fans shouldn’t get too involved in critiquing the late-game sloppy play in the back or other lapses along gjr. He said we have to remember the time and place of this game - early June after the players have just come off of a compacted (Covid) club schedule, many of them playing well into mid and even late May. Very limited practice time and still integrating new faces.
He said the far more important thing is the result. The resolve. The ability to counter-punch in the first half. Counter-punch in the second half. The belief that they could win never faltered and this kind of experience pays big dividends for a young team proceeding toward WC qualifying.
I’m new to soccer and only getting into it because the son plays and he’s a big fan of Messi. He’s going to a camp this summer but any of tips besides just supporting him?
Clint will always be one of my favorites, dude is a straight up character....
I had a problem with the ref, he was allowing dangerous play all over the field, TBH, the Mexican team should have been down 2 men (the kicking our goalie in the stomach well after he secured the ball, and the cleats up tackle that missed when the Mex player was on a yellow, gave him “a good talking too”....that ref sucked, it could have turned into an all out brawl....
I totally agree with this, and I think we have to be patient, they still have a whole lot to work out, and I do think we are 2 defenders away from having a complete team that could compete with the best national teams. But the spirit, the youth, the passion, the tenacity....if you are a US soccer fan, last night was a great moment....
Support him and be positive. Sometimes kids let u know if they are really serious and committed...my older son, after practice would practice juggling the ball and foot moves for hours....and if he is not that serious about it then it should just be fun....
Oh, and be careful of the coaches who yell instructions from the sidelines. The game is the best teacher, you want them to learn from their mistakes and think on their own, not wait for the coach to tell them what to do all the time.
it was same player- Herrera lol
And he ( or was it Guardado ) grabbed McKennie by the neck ( again - they did few years back too )
Apparently they have some odd affinity with choking - and i find it REALLY odd, maybe even coincidental, that their kit color was.....
black and red.
Or the parents. "Ruunnnnnnnnnnn!!!" "Don't let him beat you!!!!" "Aw c'mon ref!" I liked the parents who would throw their hands up and heads back in disgust because the ball appeared to come to a player and they didn't do anything with it. Um, you don't have the greatest angle from the sideline; maybe the ball was 10' away from the player.
