#2851802 2014 Summer Transfer Window: Rumors, Completed Deals, Pipedreams!

Posted by C47 on 15 July 2014 - 02:37 PM

Everyone is arguing about James Rodriguez, Di Maria, Kroos, Khedira.....and I'm just over here wondering what number Lazar Markovic is going to get.

Don't forget hoping Reus rumor is legit.

This is beautiful.  The only 2 Real Madrid fans on this board are arguing.




Meh, arguing with himself now. I'm done.

Soccer fans always say soccer is ready to take off. But it never does. Sorry, but it is still going to take years for it to become main stream. If it ever does.

It is worse than watching flies fu(k. Boring as all get out. 90 minutes of action for a half dozen plays. Figure out a way to make it more exciting, then maybe it will take off.

That, and no one knows when the damm game is going to end. I mean, who keeps the clock? Does anyone? Do they just add some time to make the fans hang around that much longer?


Yet still better than Nascar and Baseball. Completely idiotic comment btw....



Soccers growth problem is that American's find it hard to develop a rooting interest. Clearly Americans will watch the sport in droves IF they have the vested interest in it. It's easy to rally around American pride and patriotism. Much harder to find a reason to support a European club week in and week out through a long club season. For the mainstream, it probably will be more of a "check in every now and then" kind of sport. However, I do think the World Cup has created some new fans, who will watch EPL, Bundesliga, Champions League etc to try and follow some of the young talent on this squad. 


Just my two pennies

#2837715 Julian Green

Posted by C47 on 02 July 2014 - 08:55 AM

Dude, we've seen some fantastic talents just fall apart and never reach their full potential at Madrid. Green is no different. He's 18 and raw as hell. Like I said, the potential is there but he's also on a German club that is incredibly stacked with talent. Green is gonna have to stand out.


If you don't think players are better for practicing against the best IDK what to tell ya. Doesn't matter what sport it is, battling against the best every day will make you better. Is he guaranteed to be a star? Absolutely not, but he will improve as long as he stays in Europe. Product of playing against better competition. I think it's a pretty safe bet to say he's going to make a pretty sizable jump in ability by 2018....

But I have NEVER seen any USA fans be this excited in a bar.


Go to Hooligans. Official AO bar in Charlotte. You'll see plenty.

#2835494 Most Overrated Game of All-Time

Posted by C47 on 29 June 2014 - 10:29 PM

Don't get me wrong, i love the game. But its overrated for being just another typical rpg. It really doesn't break new ground. Yes it was one of the first 3d final fantasys' and did the transition from 2d to 3d right of any game series at the time. It would be one of my top games ever. But it was marketed like crazy back then. Commercials, on build boards, and on freakin buses. Truelly seeing those thingsy got everyone and their monther to play it. Plus overrated based on any other rpg that comes out must be compared to it. Like it has this huge standard, truethfully it wouldnt be hard to emulate or even be better than it gameplay wise, and more rpgs have done so. Fanboys of it make it overrated.   


You're talking about a game that's getting close to celebrating it's 20th anniversary. Of course you can make the gameplay better in 20 years. It would be a serious problem if you couldn't. Being old doesn't make a game overrated., not being worth the hype and fanfare when it was new does. FFVII was absolutely worth every bit of hype and fanfare when it came out...

Agreed, but that's why I said "more than any other player." As an ex-CB, I play close attention to the back line, and it irks me he lost his guy. Everyone was to blame for giving up the win, but to me, he's the most culpable.


Would agree with that statement. Losing his marking is inexcusable.

In the above picture, the blue team is attacking. When the ball is played forward by a teammate, no "scoring body part" can be beyond the last line of defense for the opposition (not including keeper).


Being even is onside.


If the attacking team is beyond the last line of defense, and the opposing team plays it back to him, he is onside.


If the goalkeeper is further up the pitch than a defender, he becomes the last line of defense, and he is the line.


Pictures definitely would have helped my explanation, but I was too lazy to google. Pie for you.

I pretty much know that you only get penalty kicks if the penalty happens inside the box.  Are there any exceptions to that?


No outside of the box it's a free kick.

How many "fouls" does a player get before he's ejected or removed?


Depends on how bad the foul is. Sometimes one foul = booked. Other times you can commit 5-6 fouls if they aren't severe without seeing a card.

Ok so its a penalty if the defense gets beat?  I cant get behind them for a shot on goal?  No wonder you cant score in this game.  Thats worse than the illegal contact rule in football or no hand checking in b-ball.


Not a penalty, offsides. You just have to time your runs right. Think of the last line of Defense as the blue line in Hockey. Just like Hockey, if you're past the blue line (last line of defenders) you can pass the ball to teammates who are also past them.

#2831425 Bench His @ss!

Posted by C47 on 26 June 2014 - 01:43 PM

Regardless of what you think, having Bradley on the pitch gives us the best shot at winning.


Bingo. If we had a better option sitting on the bench I would be all for sitting him in his current form. Sadly, we don't have a Andrea Pirlo, Mario Gotze or Paul Pogba sitting on our bench...
