    She made that great fake to shift the left defender out and open that space in the middle.

    yup. absolutely.

    I shared it with my team page. it has just about everything you shouldn't do (NED dwelling on the ball, losing it, then the defense allowing free 20 yds in front of box, turning their back on attacker) vs everything you should do(USA pressure, win the ball, find space, take space, put defender off balance) all in a one turn of play. Basically All the talking points I give kids at training or before games lol

    :lol3 Nope, sadly. I'd have been honored for him to do either of those things.

    If I remember correctly, I didn't have much interaction with him on the field. He played as a striker back then, and was (probably still is) extraordinarily fast. Just one of those dudes who everyone knew would be going pro someday, and this was all happening 11-12 years ago when we were both seniors in high school.

    Would be very cool if it was updated more often, but during a major tournament, the combination of events is happening so quickly it'd be difficult to sort it all out.

    Typical for Neymar. He is very talented, but his futbol is outshone by his ego.

    No-one wants Neymar.. He goes where Nike wants him and if Nike wants him at your club, he will be at your club.

    Surprised to see Liverpool dawdling on a Milner contract... A good all around player, that fits Klopp style and Homegrown is hard to find.

    agree both Counts. Milner is an exceptional team player. Thats What I like to point to my kids from pro teams... not just the "stars"

    The actual signings United have look good so far. Wan-Bissaka, excellent speedy defender, looks very hungry. and Daniel James, i'm seeing as a direct replacement for Herrera , only faster and more hungry. IVe only been able to see highlights, but They both appear to have that "play UP to the badge" look to their body language. Not the "i deserve to be here" look we see from some of the current players. :)

    I am Optimistic, but firmly realistic. lol

    It Broke my heart to see Madrid lose the way they did to Atletico... Tee Tee Heee, the momentary shot of Ramos with that "Oh Shit" look on his face.. Well, Made me smile..

    Just received a reply from the barca forum. It is Tots units fem força
    Translated: United we are strong.

    I wear it proudly as a statement for fcb and the advrider team
