    Always thought Sterling was a petulant lil Diva at Liverpool. Hasn’t changed. Proud of the way Southgate handled it quickly and decisively. Don’t seem captain material that.

    Got home in time to watch the semi final, and see young KJ bang in the opener. Dutch completely dominated Paraguay, whistle to whistle. Some real talented youngsters there. I too was a bit puzzled at their first two matches, following their Euro win earlier this year. But, when I looked at the stats, it looked like classic Dutch football, dominating possession, and creating chances. Sometimes it just doesn’t go your way. The Jong Oranje get the young el Tri in the semis, and if they play as they did yesterday, I would expect them to have a solid chance at an amazing double. Watching Brazil hammer Italy now. They will be very tough at home. Hup Holland!!!

    All in all, a good win over a solid Rhode Island team that may make the tourney. The sloppy early play was concerning, but it is early, and the veteran RI side looked equally as sloppy second half. This team is very talented, and very deep. If they click on together, they will be a tough out for anyone. And, if Chol comes back fit for the second half of the season, this team could make a LOT of noise. Shooting is the big concern now, as Cowan, Wiggins, and Ayala all looked a bit off it again last night. Missed too many freebies as well. I like that they’re trying to up the tempo, since they’ve got such depth, they can continually bring in fresh legs. Caveat is, they need to be stronger on the boards. Stix doesn’t seem to like mixing it up with the strong guys inside, though he looks MUCH bigger and more solid than last year. Was hoping the Mitchell twins would bring that toughness, but they both looked a bit timid. They’re young, so there is plenty of time to grow into it. Really liked what I saw from Scott. Dude is a monster...full on grown ass man body already, and has some athleticism and range. Kid looks like he could be a star in the making. Can play the perimeter, and is a more than willing defender and rebounder. This is a HUGE year for Turge. He’s got a stable of thoroughbreds that he needs to get over the line. Anything less than. Sweet 16 or final 8 appearance would be a major disappointment. Enjoyed watching such a talented Terp squad. Just keeping my fingers crossed for a full Marial recovery by Christmas.

    If they go after him for jury tampering or obstruction, I guess he’ll use the “I’m to stupid to do this,”defense as well.

    Yeah, wasn’t about to spend $5 to watch em play Holy Cross myself. First reaction after seeing final stats was the same: “They shot like crap!” We know both Ayala and Wiggins are much better than that, so no cause for alarm. Biggest stat takeaway for me though was lack of turnovers. TOs killed them often last season, so if they take better care of the ball, should bode well. Oh, that, and Donta Scott’s line looked rather impressive.

    I said it before, but it bears repeating: Josh Jackson is not very good at football quarterbacking.

    2019 NCAA Football thread

    Which is kinda crazy when you look at Bama’s out of conference schedule. Only big 5 team they play is Duke. Yeah, they play in an ultra tough SEC, but you gotta schedule better non-con foes then that. But it’s Bama, so the NCAA will just slurp their jock sweat.

    You may very well be correct, but I’ll go out on another limb and say, it won’t be because of lack of talent, especially if Marial comes back fit after the break. Top 10 talent on this team. Could be a make or break year for Turge.

    Discretion being the better part of valor, at that time. Wanted the Dems to have more favorable and meaningful actions, so that impeachment would have a solid chance. Getting it by the wagon load now. Making assumptions based on limited info is always dicey, but a wonderful GOP tool.

    Curious why I got grouped here. Do my posts lead you to believe I have one iota of respect for the idiot in charge? If so, may want to look at my posting history a little closer. I was vocal before the 2016 election that anyone who takes this knucklehead seriously, is a knucklehead in complicity. And, any woman who votes for this misogynist and racist ass wipe has zero self-worth. Just sayin...

    US Soccer thread.

    Most pathetic all around performance by a USMNT I can remember in ages. Much worse than the loss to T&T in qualifying in my eyes. Players don’t seem to understand what the coach is asking of them, and coach seems utterly clueless. Playing undeserving players, playing guys out of their accustomed positions, and playing a system (I use that term quite loosely) that doesn’t suit the talent. Add to this the disorganization that is US Soccer, and this federation is closing in on reaching Redskins level of ineptitude. Shocking really.

    Wow, crazy match that! Kinda had the feel of a Reds match. N Ireland parked the bus looking for a hopeful draw, and the Dutch struggled to break them down. NI did next to nothing going forward. Koeman put on Malen and Van de Beek, and the Dutch began ratcheting up the pressure. Then a 75th minute miscue from de Ligt, and **** defending by Daley Blind gives NI a goal from their only real chance. Enter Memphis. A beautiful cross from Malen is cashed in by Depay moments later, and with him sitting in a deeper role, he and Frenkie de Jong control the remainder of the game. Luke de Jong gets the stoppage time winner in Origi vs Everton, shake your head fashion. Then Depay puts it to bed moments later. Between the Red and the Oranje, my heart is getting a workout, but they just keep winning. Onward and upward you both! Hup Holland! YNWA!
