    Just a quick update cause no one has mentioned it around here yet...
    ...Colombia is going to have two Non-FIFA friendlies next month.
    December 10th vs. Venezuela in Fort Lauderdale.
    And the one mentioned before against Mexico in Los Angeles on the 16th.

    What's the point of non-FIFA friendlies?

    The point (in general) is to take a look at players and bring them into the senior system that would otherwise not get a chance during FIFA dates.
    It will mostly be a base of Colombian League players but there might be players from other leagues too as we saw against the USA in that Non-FIFA friendly in January.

    For Fort Lauderdale and Los Angeles it is a way for those stadiums in those cities to make money when there is nothing else scheduled in those stadiums during dead times.

    ******** LA. California doesn't deserve more money when they poorly manage their shit especially with how high they tax their people here. I've met so many wanting to move out of this state.

    Although Mexican population is heavily located in California as a whole so it's not surprising how mainstream that is.

    No California is amongst the most expensive places in the US. What I pay for rent here for a one bed room apartment could get me a 4 bedroom house monthly mortgage for even less in Maryland in a very nice neighborhood.

    This state is unpleasantly challenging especially when there are people who don't make as much as people like me and it's just depressing to see what people struggle with in this state. The homelessness here is also one of if not the worst in any state in the US because people can't meet ends meet.

    I even gave my old roommate a break many times since he was younger and trying to get by on his minimum wage job while trying to finish college; I could have easily paid for my two bedroom apartment where I lived a few years ago by myself but saving as much money was essential.

    I feel so sorry for people who genuinely can't get a decent life due to cost of living.

    so when you buy a car you pay sales tax on it.

    then some d bag states then charge you a % of its value every single year. That is why my wife and I had Audis and now have Nissans :) haha. It’s property tax

    So my town it’s $43 per every $1,000 the car is worth. Not sure where the amount the car is worth either because for the first 2-3 years they said the car was worth like $7k more than I paid for either car

    the exise tax in different towns is even higher.

    I think it's even worse now for those that are owning Electric cars. Cause they pay that and a different tax for being electric. It's ridiculous.

    Yeah, rent here is about 2300 on average. That's just a 1 bedroom too.

    Depressing indeed

    My old apartment when I was in the military (also California) was $1200 for two bedrooms and it was modernized. Not brand new but for where I am my current apartment is hardly different.

    Problem is that the only cheaper places are in bad neighborhoods or waaaaaaaaay too far for me to drive to work due to the infamous traffic.

    Within Lorenzo's tactics we can definitely play them same time.
    Under the 4-4-2 Rueda system it was not a good option at all.

    Now the main question is can we play Diaz, Sini and JArias at the same time?
