Return To The Blog

It's Sunday night/Monday morning of Jul 11, 2016.

Some big things happened since I went on vacation Jun 4:

  • Chile won Copa America Centenario.
  • Lionel Messi took his ball and went home. (Or to prison.)
  • USA reached the Semifinals and then got beat more thoroughly then I have ever seen them get beat.

  • Portugal won Euro 2016.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo finally got his major trophy. From the bench. Injured.
  • France yakked up the trophy on home soil.

  • CORRECTED: Indy Eleven New York Cosmos won the NASL Spring Championship. (Indy winning was such a shock that I am still stunned. Thanks to Evan for sorting that mess out for me.)
  • Minnesota United face planted in the Spring season, finishing 4th.

  • The US Open Cup is down to the Quarterfinals, which will be played Wed Jul 20.

  • Toronto FC won the Voyageurs Cup aka the Canadian championship.

  • Another name from du Nord Futbol's MLS Coaches Hot Seat Power Rankings bit the dust: Adrian Heath of Orlando, who was at #4. (So I guess its about time for a new list.)

  • Jurgen Klinsmann is the name in the headlines of the English tabloids - they want him as their national team coach. We shall see.

  • Copa Libertadores Semifinals 2nd Leg games will be played this week.

  • Tell me what else I missed.

The Bird Is The Word

I'm glad you are back.

You hit the high points.

In MLS the LA Galaxy stopped hitting the snooze alarm.

NYFC figured out that everyone else in the east is pretty bad too.

Glad you are back!

Bummer the US played so scared in their game vs Argentina, unless their plan was to play fully afraid, then they executed about flawlessly.

I thought they looked better vs Columbia in the 3rd place game, and JK did what I had been asking for the past year or two (use a consistent line-up already!). That being said, if he has a learning curve and can keep a consistent line-up then I once again have hope for the US.
