    Let's face it.... time to stop caring about the men's team.... everyone jump on board with a winner... the women's team.

    Hey, buddy, here's the reality. The Women's team play just like the men's team, it will happen at this world cup.

    Everyone's getting priced out of proper training, meaning a much shallower pool, hell we're screwed once the current ladies are gone I think and then people who don't pay attention will be very, very confused. (It's why I cringe at the equal pay thing a bit because people don't realize what's going on, I'm fine with and think there should be equal pay but it doesn't feel like people are actually paying attention to what the sport is to the working class and how it's being locked out of the sport, if it was happening to Football or Basketball there would've been a fix to it by now.)

    This slid under the radar a bit but should be noted.

    A FIFA Panel has ruled that USSF must ensure that Premiere Crossfire recieves a solidarity payment for DeAndre Yedlin (MLS recently approved solidarity payments this year, it's been left off the table until recently because the MLS Players union didn't want it because it meant less money)

    EDIT: MLS owes Crossfire $100,000

    We’ll win...but I’d revolt even if it’s a 2-0, 3-1 type match.

    Zardes shouldn't be ahead of anyone.

    I hate this team. I was kinda excited to see some sort of starting 11 with Weston, Adams, Pulisic and Holmes. Now I'm gonna watch CP get fouled relentlessly, Zardes play balls off his shin guards, Arriola run around with no point and probably Trapp get beat and give up space to guys playing in the 2nd division of the Trinidad league. Can't Wait.

    U9 and U10 Academy is what was being referred to earlier. Those are between $200-$300. U11 is when select programs start. The tuition for that is anywhere from $1,500 -$2,000 in the metro depending on where you are at. There are usually 1-2 mandatory overnight tourney's on top of that. The uniform cost is ~$200. This is in addition to tuition.

    Even with a European passport they can't go until 16 because of FIFA regulations. The route Messi took is illegal today. Ben Lederman got into a huge legal mess because of moving into Barca's academy against FIFA rules. He's at Genk now, by the way.

    That's huge news. It's still a sham that domestic transfers won't get solidarity payments, but this is better than nothing.

    Hoping to get back from the Crew game to watch this game. Ready for disaster on both fronts.

    I will be watching this like a McDermott-era hoops contest: zero expectations and hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

    That’s me. It’s US Open cup Round of 16 with USMNT in session so who knows what the lineups are going to look like.

    Should we be hoping we lose? I feel like a lot of people want to see BIG changes being made, and wouldn't losing be the fastest way to see changes.

    I don’t want to lose to Guyana lol. That would just be an embarrassment for the nation.

    I don't think losing this match would really do anything....the USSF would just chalk it up to "a new coach" sadly

    What big changes would be made? Say the crazies get their way and we lose all 3 group matches 12-0 and Berhalter is fired on the sideline before the 3rd match ends. What on Earth is going to happen? Pro/Rel isn’t happening, our player pool isn’t going to magically improve overnight, and Pep Guardiola isn’t going to leave Manchester to come coach the US.
