>"He looks athletic at times and I think to the untrained eye you say wow this guy is good, this guy is great,” Wynalda continued. “[He’s] so out of position ninety percent of the time, I don’t know what to make of it. As a forward I would love to play against this guy.”

Will Hamid ever be able to recover from this or is his career over now?

>Every transfer window there are always some stupid rumors involving teams
fixed that for you
>>
>>64744244
I know
Just felt that the concept was funny
Not sure how they'd afford Cole, Lescott and de Jong anyhow
>>
>>64744273
But in regards to MLS, every player over 30 is linked to coming over according to these "trusted" sources. It's already been like 3 years since Ivica Olic and Diego Forlan are rumored to joining some MLS team.
>>
>>64744292
go beg Garber to change the rules again
>>
>>64744319
I'd give a kidney to see Forlan come to the US
>>
>>64744319
They're still linked btw
>>64744328
If they could they'd still have Gonzalez
>>
>>64744349
He got kicked off of a team in the Japanese second division

I guess Los dos(galaxy2) can no longer compete in USL games. Due to being owned by a bigger club.
>>
>>64744407
you mean Open Cup games
>>
>>64744349
In a recent interview to a Spanish newspaper, Forlan was practically advertising himself to get an opportunity in MLS. He must be disappointed no MLS team wants him.

>>64744354
That's my point, a lot of these rumors are just agents trying to generate interest, not because MLS teams actually are looking to sign these players.

He's 36 and wouldn't have been much of a draw anyways

Is your country even allowed to watch them based on the name?
>>
>>64744513
Seattle Sounders: comes from the NASL 1.0, which was unashamedly American
LA Galaxy: comes from MLS 1996, when Nike was given total creative control by a bunch of NFL executives to invent sports team names for the '90s, which was of course as American as it gets
LAFC: comes during the MLS 3.0 era, during which U.S. soccer is suffering from an extreme inferiority complex and crisis in conscience; it doesn't know what it wants to be and so it chooses a safe, global branding

>Another friend of mine, a kid from school, his older brother in the Navy said how guys in the Middle East jack off different than we do here. This brother was stationed in some camel country where the public market sells what could be fancy letter openers. Each fancy tool is just a thin rod of polished brass or silver, maybe as long as your hand, with a big tip at one end, either a big metal ball or the kind of fancy carved handle you'd see on a sword. This Navy brother says how Arab guys get their dick hard and then insert this metal rod inside the whole length of their boner. They jack off with the rod inside, and it makes getting off so much better. More intense.

The Zardes transfer probably broke down when Reading got a new manager. Not saying I agree with Juninho leaving, but I understand what the team attempted to do.

It's not something they should have attempted without a backup plan
If Nigel de Jong is that backup plan, then the allocation money/cap relief wouldn't actually come

Yeah, but none of us really understand why Arena is changing so many players and his back up plan to all these changes. Most LA fans don't like all these transfer rumors and speculations. We just have to wait to see how things work out.

One of the new changes to the Laws of the Game:

Quick return
If a player goes off to change boots, instead of having to wait until play has stopped and after inspection from the referee, the fourth official or assistant ref can inspect the boots (or whatever else) and the player can come back in during play.

Soccer isn't even a sport, at least not originally. It was an activity. There was an article about it's origins by the top "football" writer in England awhile back (can't remember his name, Mohammed something). Anyways, it started strictly as a way to shed pent-up homosexual urges. Back then of course, homosexuality was taboo, and European men at the time (and now of course) all had strong homosexual desires, but couldn't even consider masturbation to quell these thoughts, as, due to societal pressures at the time, even thinking about men (this was natural to them) brought about all kinds of shame. Thus, soccer was born. I wish I could find the article, this fine Englishman does a much better job of explaining it.

Players leaving is normal, happens in the top European leagues and no one is making a big deal about it.

Based pescado is old as fuck now, his time has passed.
There won't be a replacement for him in a long time, but Cuilapita Mejia could be the new fish, He plays with more balls than anyone on our NT except based Cincotta, is pretty fast, involved himself in pretty much every goal we ever scored in 2015, and is a qt mayan manlet

They aren't able to keep enough teams in order to stay alive and even become a proper division 2. so, fold.

>do I need to list any more?
>>
>>64786974
They need to keep sabre-rattling about Division 1 to keep the Cosmos, Railhawks, and a couple other teams happy. Once Cosmos get their stadium (and especially if NYCFC don't) they might be able to force a deal to move to MLS while retaining ownership of their brand, after which NASL can settle down and concentrate on filling out a D2 role.

How are any of these "Americanized" names fundamentally different from yuro names like
>Bolton Wanderers
>Blackburn Rovers
>Queens Park Rangers
>Charlton Athletic

Especially considering that there are baseball teams in the US named Rangers and Athletics...
>>
>>64823047
>a few exceptions to the rule negates the rule
"no"

Plus, you don't call any of those teams by their >nickname except the Wanderers, and even then you'll hear them called Bolton the majority of the time. The rest are called Blackburn or Rovers, QPR or Queens Park Rangers, and Charlton, not the Athletics. The differences are sometimes subtle but almost always distinct, proving the rule.

In every sport in the U.S. before MLS 2.0, just about every team is [city/state/region name] [nickname] and can be referred to as [city/state/region name] or the [nickname]. For the vast majority of soccer teams around the world, that isn't the case, objectively.

>>64823379

>>64823580
Most of those weren't professional teams or became a pro team only after naming itself as an amateur team.

Pro U.S. sports team naming conventions are here to stay because it's all about the brand and familiarity for the TV audience. U.S. soccer is in the middle of a massive identity crisis so that's why they're the outlier, along with not having any tradition of significant TV $$$ to aim for.
