They’ll play in empty stadiums.

The irony of Liverpool not getting to celebrate 30 years of frustration in front of fans is harsh.

The music is slowing down and six teams are circling the three remaining seats. Might be the only interesting thing remaining in the epl.

I'm going for Villa, mainly because we have a poster actually invested in them, and we need all the engagement we can get on this board.

Also Norwich, although that's not looking so good. I used to go to Kings Lynn for work a few years back, and a lot of the team lived in Norwich and rooted for the canaries.

Also Watford, I respect them, and they've been up consistently for a while. Get the impression if they go down they're not getting back immediately.

F'k West Ham. Meh on Bornmouth or Brighton.

For sure. There will be no EPL games behind closed doors. That's insane. And we don't know when he contracted the virus. The virus is undetectable in the beginning stages of the virus. He could have contracted this a week ago, and symptoms are now presenting themselves.

The entire Arsenal facility has been contaminated, and the hand shake with players, coaches, management, and fans.

but I just had to post about US Soccer rolling around in its own diarrhea, time and time again. this time, the publicized court filing against the USWNT that used every bad PR phrase possible and barely stopped short of calling women inherently stupid.

one argument presented was that the USMNT has to face more hostile crowds in the US due to Mexico's following, thus their jobs are more demanding. who really put that on fucking paper and thought that was a good idea? oh yeah, a lawyer working for US Soccer!

I'm in the group that feels that the US women should not be paid on equal footing as the men, due to how long the men have been playing, and that the field of competition is tougher

Men have been playing soccer since 1885. US Women's soccer started in 1985, and the team came into being a top top club in 1999.

Now I do believe that they deserve to be the highest paid women's national team in the world, but to be paid on the same level as the men, or higher, I disagree with that.

Their level of competition needs to get better. There are really only 4-5 truly competitive national teams in women's soccer, and there are barely 20 teams in the field, and most of them have terrible women's national programs, because their countries don't invest in women's soccer. United States invest an immense amount of money into the women's national team, probably more than any other country.

The men have to face stiff competition from the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, so competition is far superior to anything the women are facing.

With that, I say, continue to grow the women's game, and as other countries catch up and provide better competition, then the earnings and prizes will increase. Women's national team is great simply because the majority of the teams are really, really bad.

Think about it, in this modern era of soccer, which I date starting in the 90s. I don't count anything before 1990 to be able to compare to the current speed or play of soccer. No Men's national team has repeated as World Cup winners. The US women just did it, by winning in 2015 and 2019.

Come on man. They beat Thailand 13-0 in the World Cup. It was an embarrassment to the game of soccer, and how competition is overly one sided.

Thailand does not invest anywhere near the amount of money they invest in the men.
So you can’t just pay them to pay them to not have publicity issue, etc

Imagine two people taking math. One taking arithmetic other taking calculus. The one taking arithmetic is passing easily, where the other is struggling. Would you say the arithmetic person is smarter or on the same footing as the calculus person?

I’m not trying to degrade the women at all. They are fantastic, and the USSF has handled this poorly, but to be paid equally as the men for beating up on poor competition, now that’s not fair.

Have City throw their match this weekend

LFC beats Everton.

LFC title. End the season.

Send apologies to all the people who get sick because we extended the season an extra week.

I think this is the most prudent course of action.

39. "What I'd like to see (long): End the Season now, and:"

1) Declare liverpool champs;
I do genuinely feel bad for longtime liverpool season ticket holders being deprived of the chance to properly celebrate, but c'est la vie.

2) Uphold City's CL ban starting next season, because the Emiratis obviously deserve that shit.

3) Leicester gets the 2nd CL slot, and unfortunately Chelsea the 3rd slot. There's def an argument against exempting Chelsea from the proposed playoff below, but I think overall they've done enough throughout the season to keep their slot.

4) Championship style playoffs for the last CL slot between United & Wolves, and the same for the Europa between Sheffield, Spurs and Arsenal. Maybe have Spurs v Arsenal @ Wembley for the right to go to Sheffield, along with United & Wolves in a neutral venue.

This is where it gets contentious, obviously. I wish there was a way to give the last 2 CL spots to Wolves and Sheffield, leaving Chelsea, United, Spurs & Arsenal to battle for the Europa league.

I certainly recognize that on current form, and frankly talent, United merits the last CL slot. But fuck the Glazers, and every United fan not from Manchester.

Moreover Sheffield has a game in hand, that if they had won would have put them a point up on United. So maybe Sheffield deserves to battle it out for the CL spot with United. Wolves are just a better side than Sheffield though, we all know this.

5) Relegate Norwich only, with a playoff between Leeds & West Brom for the 1 promotion slot. Everyone else in the relegation zone stays up.

This is where it's really tough, given the financial implications. I'd personally like to see Norwich, Brighton and especially the Hammers go down. I have a soft spot for Aston Villa (they're good fans) and I've grown accustomed to Bournemouth and Watford in the EPL. I've really nothing against Norwich or Brighton, but the former clearly isn't up to speed, and the latter really doesn't offer much of anything. And fuck West Ham.

Overall it's just too early to call how things would turn out in the bottom of the EPL and top of the championship, other than that Norwich is the worst in the EPL and Leeds and West Brom are the best in the Championship.

Anyway, I think they should condense the rest of the season to like 4 weeks, maybe 4-6 games. Do it either in May/June, assuming we get through this, or in August prior to a delayed start of a slightly shortened 2020-21.

No matter what they do, you can't cancel a season after 75% of the games were played and just pretend it never happened.

The greatest game in Men’s American soccer history.

Hard to watch though because of what happened to Charlie Davies later down the road.

Thanks for sharing.

the way kyle beckerman was deployed was genius, and when they left him out of that game they couldn't get forward

Belgium had trouble with Yedlin's speed late in the game, imagine 2 of them

However that game made Spain strong as fuck later on down the road.

They realized Torres was trash, after that they put in Villa and the rest is history

Anyone want to watch the 86 Mexico World Cup with me this weekend? All of it?

I was actually going to make a separate GD-ish post about world cups and the power of nostalgia and being great markers for our lives a Being every four years, etc.
