  1. Wasn't able to watch our opener so this is my first look at this new team. Obviously a tiny sample size, but I'm impressed so far
  2. No, it's mostly just mocking the bullshit headline of this thread. Biden definitely isn't popular right now, but you don't have to go very far back to find a more unpopular 'POTUS
  3. If Biden announced he was requiring every company with 100+ employees to do weekly testing, I don't think there would be nearly as much pearl clutching (though there'll always be some) This is effectively just that, except it gives companies the chance to opt out by mandating the shot
  4. Some bullshit does go down in Eastern Europe, this was England vs Hungary the other day
  5. Well at least none of our players were arrested during the match in El Salvador. Absolutely wild scenes in The Brazil vs Argentina match today. As for us, I'm hoping for a much stronger home performance tonight
  6. I went to Vegas this weekend the day after the mandate. It was a tad annoying to get used to wearing it again, especially in the heat, but it really wasn't a big deal
  7. Doubt it. England isn't going to call him up in The September window, and we have 3 chances to cap tie him there Can be. Mexico fans are no strangers to filling the field with cups when they're not happy. This my favorite example from it
  8. Probably the scariest things I've ever seen on live TV Luckily it appears he's okay
  9. The Swiss piss away numerous chances to build a big lead on Wales and it comes back to bite them. Welsh 15 minutes away from stealing a point
  10. The Nations League would have counted as a non friendly, but Musah didn't play. It's how we captied Dest
  11. Hes not gonna miss his preseason in Spain to go to The Gold Cup. He'll get cap tied in September
  12. Oklahoma would have been the 4 seed last year
  13. Yes, traditionally FIFA windows are 2 matches, now they'll be 3. Qualifying will start in September and end in March. Last cycle we played our first qualifier in November of 2015 and played our last in October of 2017
  14. We traditionally play with 2 center backs who defend centrally and 2 fullbacks who defend out wide (this is referred to as a back 4). We decided to remove a midfielder from The Honduras game (Jackson Yuiell) and replace him with Tim Ream, a 3rd center back. Part of the hope was that this would allow Sergino Dest our fullback more room to get forward without having to track back as much defensively since he would have Ream covering him. It didn't really work, and Tim Ream was just kinda left on an island by himself, which he isn't really equipped to handle. Whether or not we'll se
  15. Mexico squeaks by Costa Rica in penalties. They did not look pretty either
  16. Yup, we really lacked that bite in the final third. Transition defense is a terrifying problem for this team. Tyler Adam's is arguably our 2nd best player behind Pulisic, but he's never healthy. It's his job to provide cover for our defense on the break and it's pretty clear that we don't have backups who could fill his role. He traveled with the team but didn't play today. I'm praying he's good to go for Mexico on Sunday
  17. Ooof, this has been a rough opening for our Golden Generation. Qualifying might not be the breeze many thought it'd be
  18. No that's the now defunct Confederations Cup. Gold Cup is just a regional tournament that is either won by The US or Mexico every year. CONCACAF is run primarily by tiny Caribbean countries with around 100,000 people. They don't really have the talent to compete for World Cups, but these tournaments are a solid way for them to milk some cash
  19. A tournament that was invented to try and reduce the number of meaningless friendlies and get more competitive matches for the smaller CONCACAF teams who never make it far in qualifying. The first round was in 2019, and it was supposed to be wrapped up last summer, but COVID pushed it. After this it's The Gold Cup in July which will be a B team, and then World Cup Qualifying starts in September
  20. They kick off against Honduras in 10 minutes on CBSSN. This is the first non friendly that our long touted Golden Generation will be playing. A win today likely means Mexico on Sunday night (though they have to handle Costa Rica tonight) Really pumped to see how these guys look
  21. No clue. I signed up on the NM DOH website about a month ago not expecting to hear back for a long time, and they text me today
  22. Anyone here get the vaccine yet? I'm 27 with no real health issues, and was surprised to just get selected for it. I was expecting to wait til Spring
  23. Maybe it was just a blind spot on my part, and I always knew you were a right winger, but it seems like you've really gone off the rails since Election Day
  24. Maybe, but Id argue the bulk of them are. I'm not sure if it's 10% or 25% of Trump voters who are only willing to tolerate racism and not outwardly racist themselves. Either way its not a good sign of the state of this country. My question is, how disgusting can a politician be, before you start questioning the character of their supporters?
