The objections I have heard are centered on automobile access and parking, which would obviously be better at this site (which also has express subway access, whereas Baker requires a relatively long trip on a local).
No way does Chelsea not bring Lukaku back
That makes sense. I thought maybe they wouldn't be as expensive since they are still young (very young in Deulofeu's case) and somewhat unproven.
I get that, but it could be decades, if ever, that they're in Europe again.
Even before leading the United States into next year's World Cup, Jürgen Klinsmann has been signed to stay on as coach for the 2018 World Cup.
Klinsmann, whose side play Germany, Portugal and Ghana in the group stage in Brazil next summer, has agreed to a four-year contract extension. The German has been the US head coach since July 2011, however his new deal gives him the additional title of the US Soccer Federation's technical director.
Awesome, I am really really happy to see that Klinsy will be around for the next cycle too.
Robin Van Persie will miss the entire festive period with a thigh injury. I'm not playing Taps for Man U yet, but I'm getting my horn out of its case...
History is very unkind to managers who coach back to back World Cups, and to sign Klinsmann to a contract extension before the World Cup is bizarre. Why the need to do it now?
It looks like a thigh injury but I'm wondering if Moyes rushed him back from the groin problem and that it had some cascading effect.
and that would be worse than just cycling through managers and maintaining our current cromulence.
Also, I was having some fun today with projections. Here's projected chance of points over the holiday period for the clubs in the top four race, with chance of top four and chance of title based on each outcome.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Man City, Man United, Tottenham.
But what if the U.S. were to use Recife for its home base for group play? ... It sounds like it's not going to happen
The team already has its resort hotel and training ground (it’s “base camp”) selected in Sao Paolo; that won’t change no matter what venues to which the United States finds itself dispatched on Friday.
[T]hose responsible for England's pre-tournament arrangements were at least pleased they could retain their first-choice base camp in Rio de Janeiro.
Other teams, including Italy, have had to alter their plans because all three of their group matches are based in the north.
If they were to be second in group G, they'd play in Salvador and Brasilia next; I don't think anyone cares if they are putting themselves in some competitive disadvantage by not traveling south of Brasilia until the semis, right? With six months lead time, can't they ditch Sao Paulo for the north?
I suppose it is an issue common to all pro sports though. In MLB it is Toradol and Adderall and let's play ball, so maybe it is not unique to soccer.
1. The team movement and passing seem much more intricate back then, partially, I think, because defenders don't press as much as they do now so things happened a bit more slowly. Definitely more of a chess match aspect to things.
2. Keepers seem physically much weaker.
3. Pele was a bit of a diver, wasn't he?
