  1. if you want attention, the last place you want to post is on an online discussion forum. Have you ever heard of anyone from an online discussion forum getting any attention other than the owner? If you want attention, go to youtube, twitter, tumblr, blogspot, join one of the numerous Bleacher Report-type sports networks as a contributor, start and create your own websites (my best friend is an expert in this if i wanted to do this), etc etc As for here on the Huddle: Go look at the college football forum here. Hardly anybody posts there. I posted there a ton every week during the season, w
  2. I'm an anonymous poster on an online message board. If I wanted attention this would be the last place i would come to seek it.
  3. What's driving everybody nuts is your constant crying and personally attacking other members. Those are the other worst kinds of posts one can make and they do nothing but crap up the forum. And you do this a lot
  4. if you have a problem with one of my posts, quote the post and tell me your problem with it. As for your post here, it contributes nothing to the topic of the thread which is the worst kind of post you can make, and you do this a lot.

  6. sorry for not being more clear. I should have added that per the BBC, that Evening Standard article is the source of the comments, for those who wanted to know where they came ftom. Not sure why you wouldn't want to know that...
  7. The Times: "Liverpool’s entire football operation is in need of urgent evaluation. ... For all the accusations that Sterling is going the wrong way about forcing a move (and many of these are wholly legitimate), Liverpool are at the mercy of the ambition of others because they are either unwilling or unable to match their rivals’ ambition. That situation is only likely to become more severe now that FFP is about to be watered down. As (owner John) Henry himself conceded recently, without FFP it becomes “very difficult” for Liverpool to compete. The established football food chain, order
  8. in response to the comments, Liverpool cancelled their meeting with Sterling. Liverpool believe there would be no point in having a meeting when the player's representative is quoted as saying a new deal would not be signed regardless of the figure http://m.bbc.com/sport/football/32830357
  9. Sterling's agent told the Evening Standard: “He is definitely not signing. He’s not signing for £700, £800, £900 thousand a week. He is not signing." He said Sterling would not move to Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich, and suggested Chelsea or Manchester City were the most likely destinations. He added: “Every Premier League club will make a bid for him.” Sterling, who was booed as he collected the club’s Young Player of the Year award this week , is rapidly falling out of favour with Liverpool fans, with one apparently kicking his car as he drove away from Liverpool’s training groun
  10. "Sweden's Charlotta "Lotta" Schelin represents arguably the biggest goal threat in the entire Group of Death. ... she is an absolute dynamo. She moved to Olympique Lyon in in 2008, and has since cemented herself as a keystone in the most dangerous attack in club sports. She has scored 129 goals in 120 appearances with Lyon (for the 2014-15 season: 41 goals in 31 appearances), helping the club to 7 straight league titles — Lyon has won the league every single year since she arrived — and the past 4 straight French domestic cups — and went to 4 straight Champions League Finals (2010-2013), winni
  11. "in this Summer’s Group of Death, Sweden (currently ranked 5th in the world) are the co-favorites, along with the US, to make it out of the group, deadly as it may be. ... Sweden is the real deal: they have never been ranked lower than 6th since FIFA’s Women’s World Rankings were released in 2003; they have qualified for every single World Cup and European Championship, and in both competitions they have finished outside of the top 6 only once. ... Sweden won their World Cup qualifying group in resounding fashion, conceding only 1 goal and dropping a grand total of zero points throughout
  12. NBC: -Pia Sundhage, the affable and highly successful coach of the U.S. women from 2008-2012, is now the coach of her native Sweden. ... Sweden has been grouped with the U.S. now at three consecutive World Cups (Sweden is the only team to have defeated the USWNT in World Cup group play, in 2011) ... Tom Sermanni, the man who was unceremoniously fired last year as U.S. coach, is now an assistant coach for Canada. http://www.nbcsports.com/soccer/womens-soccer/womens-world-cup-100-things-know Yahoo Sports Alex Baker @ baker_alex May 17 Pia Sundhage remains a tough act to follow, but Jil
  13. NBC: -Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala (who plays for Liverpool) is the best young player in the world. She lit up Canada last year at the U-20 World Cup as top scorer and best player (Golden Ball and Golden Boot and Nigeria finished 2nd to Germany. She is also the reigning African Women's Footballer of the Year). Americans will see her first-hand in the group stage this year. http://www.nbcsports.com/soccer/womens-soccer/womens-world-cup-100-things-know
  14. NBC: -The United States is grouped with #10 Australia, #5 Sweden and African Champions Nigeria, by far the toughest group. Every World Cup features a cliché “Group of Death,” and this is it for 2015. Finishing second likely means facing Brazil in the Round of 16. http://www.nbcsports.com/soccer/womens-soccer/womens-world-cup-100-things-know BBC: Coach Edwin Okon believes Nigeria can "shock the world" in the so-called 'Group of Death' at the 2015 women's World Cup in Canada. "We qualified as African champions and that should worry the other teams in our group," Okon told BBC Sport. ... "Ou
