    As preseason matches are starting to kick off we need someplace to discuss them, and potentially other "very important" sporting events that may or may not be relevant.

    MLS has a non comprehensive list up if you are looking for a schedule.
    https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2017/12/06/full-list-2018-mls-preseason-matches

    If you guys have links to legally streaming games, please share for all to enjoy.

    I would like to thank @ManiacalClown who I blatantly stole the thread title formatting from and who also posted all kinds of awesome referee stats for us last season.

    As we get ready for this season remember to be safe at all times and as the infamous @Ismitje always says, keep it friendly here in the neutral PBP thread.

    ******** 2018. The U20 women's team continued to disappoint.

    Not much to say about the game so far, except that I doubt this lineup loses to T&T last October.

    For some reason I expected this "young lineup" to be, I don't know - younger. Inexperienced it may be, but young, not so much.

    This is what I chose to drink this 2nd half. I like the high alcohol content.

    Sarachan may not have had a team of defensive mids on the field, but they sure did play like it.

    Ah, the 2004 Chicago Fire. At least he had a better goalkeeper this time.

    I am not entirely sure what the point of that lineup was. If it had been a normal January camp leading up to a World Cup, to WCQ, or to a Gold Cup, then some of the choices would have made more sense. But since none of those three are the case, then ?

    They don't have a technical director or a idea of who they want as coach. If there was a term to describe a position lower than sitting duck for Sarachan, it would be apt.

    Other than bringing some players into a national team camp, giving a few players a pre-pre-season, and some cash; the camp is pretty worthless.

    The irony being that the move to get a technical director and coach is dependent on an election for an unpaid position with little to no unilateral power.

    Women's soccer in the US is tactically miserable. Now that other countries are starting to develop, you know, talent, we're kind of ********ed.
