I was trying to think of something along the lines of "Gotze more appalling than Goatse to Argentinians."

Wow. 25 posts all carping about the headline...

It turns out I was correct. I said the Argentina was going to have to score a goal in order to win it. Germany scored a goal in every single one of the their games....none of them were decided by PKs.

FUN FACT: The first top-flight club match of the 2018 World Cup cycle begins... about now, actually, Seattle Sounders vs. Portland Timbers.

As for 2018 qualifiers, dates haven't been announced yet, but for reference, the 2010 World Cup final took place on July 11. 2014 qualifying commenced on June 15, 2011 with Montserrat-Belize.

And he's a kid.  There are a number of others in the 22 to 26 year range for Germany.  This may get ugly for everyone else.

At the latest it'll begin with the preliminary round of the OFC Cup of Nations, which is taking place from June 8 to June 16, 2015.

That's some funny shiat right there.

The USMNT has won five World Cup games in the past 60 years.  Calling MLS a top-flight league is laughable.
 
2014-07-14 12:21:55 AM  
so is this shiat over yet?
 
2014-07-14 12:23:38 AM  
My favourite line from the match came from one of the British commentators:  "And so Götze scores the winning goal in the final...a story with which his grandchildren will be bored to tears."

PowerSlacker: he USMNT has won five World Cup games in the past 60 years.  Calling MLS a top-flight league is laughable.


MLS has only been around 21 years, and has only been playing for 18. they're not to blame for the tragicomic history of US soccer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_men's_national_soccer_tea m  ("the United States played only two international matches from 1981 to 1983"!!) (now whether MLS is a continuation of the tragicomic history of US soccer....)

and the MLS is top flight in that it is the top division in the US--strictly a technical term here, not an adjective describing the quality of play compared to the best leagues in the world.  many top flight leagues are not "top flight" in that regard. although without a tier system that allows for relegation and promotion, there may be a chance that better teams someday develop in the new NASL (div II) (maybe the Cosmos one day...)

/look at me acting like i didn't just learn all this shiat on wikipedia

I define 'top-flight' as any match between clubs in the first tier of their country's national pyramid. What country? Irrelevant. It could be Mongolia for all I care.

MLS is at least a top 15 league, right? Could very well be ranked in the lower half of the top 10. The MLS has decent talent and the US national team is actually pretty good, I'm not so sure why so many Americans think otherwise.

Again, that was not what I sought to say. I was making no comment on MLS's ranking among domestic leagues, merely that Seattle and Portland are members of MLS and that MLS is the first tier league in its country. In my mind, Unitech Lae vs. Gigira Laitepo Morobe (Papua New Guinea, first tier) is a top flight match, but Bolton vs. Blackburn Rovers (England, second tier) is not.

As far as MLS' rank, I'd say it's probably in the 10-15 range, yeah. But I think if it wants to climb all that much higher, the rest of CONCACAF needs to step up alongside us and give the CONCACAF Champions League a better overall quality. The UEFA Champions League is a big, big draw and CONCACAF needs to at least close the gap a bit, even if they're never going to overtake.

I'm completely rough-drafting this ranking, but I'd say, oh...
1. Germany
2. England
3. Italy
4. Spain (Real and Barca, yeah, great, but look at the goat rodeo below them)
5. Netherlands
6. Portugal
7. France
8. Mexico
9. Belgium
10. United States
11. Japan
12. Russia
13. Ukraine
14. Brazil
15. Turkey
16. Argentina
17. South Korea
18. Austria
19. Australia
20. Czech Republic

Duane Dibbley: What does a club match have to do with the World Cup?


How else does a player expect to get called up to his national team? You can't carry your country through qualifiers if you can't impress the national coach enough for him to want anything to do with you in the first place, and you're not going to impress him if you don't perform for your club, or perform well enough to get shipped to a club of high enough profile where you'll get noticed.

...which is why most of the USMNT has plenty of experience abroad. Two starting keepers in the Premier League, both Jozy and Dempsey have played there too, several in other Euro leagues.  In fact, even though the US obviously had the most MLS'ers on their roster of any team in the tournament, only 10 of the 23 players are currently in the league.  Plus, of course, MLS has only been active for 1/3 the timespan you cite.  To use the USMNT as a reason for the MLS's woes (or vice versa) is laughable.

/There were 21 MLS players in the World Cup, highest profile were Dempsey, Julio Cesar, and Tim Cahill.
//Not counting David Villa because he signed with the new New York City FC team that won't start play until next year.
///Plus, of course, he hardly played for Spain.
