    Culture trumps all as long as there is reasonable resourcing. When I visit my friends in NED, I can't help but be very, very impressed...

  2. Marko72 liked Clint Eastwood's post in the thread What constitutes a "great" World Cup and why?.

    A really nice tournament for a young USMNT. We're one of the top 16 nations based on results and talent. We're not one of the top 8....

    Just because Harry Kane has not scored in this World Cup doesn't mean he's all of a sudden he's a bad player. The guy literally won the...

    Wright's goal is a goal. Good for him, lucky or not (lucky). But much like Julian Green's, it doesn't mean much for the future. I...

    CONCACAF usually outperforms Asia and Africa (and Mexico has a lot to do with that). This time we didn't, but with only two R16 matches...

  6. Marko72 liked gomichigan24's post in the thread 2026 World Cup (very) early roster predictions.

    These things are so hard to predict this far out and any prediction is bound to be fraught with errors. I think it's easier to put guys...

  7. Marko72 liked tomásbernal's post in the thread Per Espn: 3 possible formats for 2026.

    I agree. To have teams go through a grueling qualifying process only to give them 2 games to show themselves would be absurd. Which...

    This may or may not be true, but it's much less relevant, because left backs just don't impact the game nearly as much. In fact, I would...

    Everything I've seen has things like Ping Pong and Badmitton being bigger. Sorry, live by the massively populated nation, die by it. As...

    Eh. Let's not go overboard. The goal on Dest was nice movement, and the build up to the first was very nice. But Tyler didn't get lost...

    We got good Pulisic. I don't even know how there's a debate. He played well, and he played without trying a ton of hero ball. He's...

    From what I’ve seen of the English team, I just can’t see them getting past France. It’s possible, but I’ll be surprised.

    The English or the Argentines could surprise and upset them on the way, but... no, I just don't see it, either. And they're cruising.

    I can’t see any other team than France or Brazil winning. Their collective talent is on another level from all the other teams.

    Probably that it's great to be a rich, young athlete in a target rich environment like the Netherlands.
