    I don't think the 15 original teams forming this new league care much about fairness, more so about increasing profits for themselves, and them alone.

    Pulisic with a goal for Chelsea. Don't care which team, just happy a USMNT player has continued success at the highest levels

    As a Chelsea fan, I just lost patience with Werner. Yes, he is good, but mentally as weak as Howden´s stickhandling. He had 29 high danger chances this year. Scored 8, missed 21. At some point, the patience just runs out. Especially since it might cost us the final.

    He was very good for Leipzig but probably should have stayed there.

    He wasn't able to make much of an impression for team Germany at the highest level either. I think he's just in a tier below.

    he was very good in leipzig but absolute trash for chelsea. he does seem to be mentally weak in soccer terms. i remember some issue with him and his mindset being a problem for the german national team.

    Please Tuechel let Pulisic get on the field today! I want an American to score in a CL final.

    The number of players 25 and under in the USMNT pool playing for good European teams right now has me extremely enthusiastic.

    There might be a time when the national team actually has a choice of roster and formations, rather than just trying to fit all of their only 8-9 world cup level players on the field at any given time.

    No love for our lads after last night? Nice to see the whole group together playing a solid match and actually doing enough to come out on top against Mexico for once. f***ing sweet victory that was.

    McKenzie though, woof. :laugh: He was involved directly in both goals against, the called back goal, and the penalty at the end. I like the guy's future chances but damn. I was waiting for Miazga to come in.

    Finally, and I don't usually generalize fans, but the Mexican fans are horrible. It's every game they're doing something awful. What's wrong with them? CONCACAF needs to start making them play home games with an empty Estadio Azteca and fining the federation substantially.

    The team and their fanbase are just so unlikeable.

    Mexico could play an exhibition against North Korea and I'd root for North Korea to win.

    You gotta hear him call a Germany game.

    Cangialosi vs German names is the funniest thing on television.
