Damn that sucks. I've enjoyed following the last few World Cups. Doubt I will with no rooting interest.
Can we fold the USMNT and stop playing this stupid ass sport?
RIP American soccer
Not a soccer fan by any means but that fucking sucks. Love following the US in the World Cup. Thanks Trump.
I guess we deserve this
How does this happen? I realize we'll never be Germany or Brazil in soccer, but how can we not qualify over Panama? Lost to T&T? Yikes.
Oh well. There goes an excuse for leaving work early to get drunk at a bar while draped in American flag regalia.
Well we rehired a coach that we had previously fired for being bad.
Iceland has literally 0.1% of the US population and managed to qualify.
Sucks to suck.
take it to the soccer board
Now that we don't have to root for a team with 0% chance of winning, what country should I root for?
What if we end up missing the one we host in the future
Guess I'll be rooting for Iceland next year
trash coach, trash players minus a couple. nobody's paying shit for soccer here, if you aren't the god-king Pulisic you're taking your talents to a sport where you can bank. if baseball and basketball and football essentially never existed we would be unholy terrors on the pitch. our country is fucking amazing at sports for the most part, athletics is a huge part of the American identity, we've just never had that moment in soccer that made people care.
maybe in 50 years when football is banned we can push all those kids towards soccer and take our seat at the table with the rest of the big boys but not now.
Fortunately that can't happen.
This is pretty embarrassing.
hosts automatically qualify iirc.
think the hosts auto-qualify iirc.
In Europe no less.
How much do we have to pony up to fifa in order to host this one next year so we can get in? Probably a dumb idea, no way an honest organization like that would ever take money for such a thing.
nvm, misread the post. I'm an idiot.
fox has to be so pissed about this.
really though, think of all the amazing athletes this country produces on a yearly basis and now eliminate the big 3 sports and imagine soccer mattered more than life itself for sports fans THEN imagine how ridiculous our teams would be. the only difference between us and any soccer power is their kids grow up dreaming of playing soccer. we have the best facilities, the best trainers, that's why we so run the Olympics each and every year (seriously there isn't even a close 2nd to us in the Olympics). Imagine Pulisic as a Lebron-type figure and the fight to sign him to a 9-figure deal between teams in LA, Chicago, New York, Miami.
we could be kings at the sport if we treated it as such.
That's too bad.
This is 2017 Baylor football embarrassing.
They obviously didn't care much seeing as only a tiny fraction of Americans had access to the channel they put the most important game in 4 years on.
But we don't. So, oh well.
Away game rights are different I believe. Also every bar worth a shit in America is packed out when USA plays. Fox is pissed and so is every bar owner and bar staff.
On the bright side, the US can't get put into the group of death this time
All of our players except for pulisic should just kill themselves. Not qualifying for the World Cup is super embarrassing
I don't know if you guys have noticed, but soccer sucks and the USA sucks at it.
I get that soccer doesn't get the best athletes but it seems like a country of our size should be able to field a better team than Panama and T&T while using our D- athletes. Apparently not when coupled with poor coaching.
Nah, we fucked ourselves
This sucks being that nhlers won't be in the olympics
Wait, we lost on that?
The Birmingham, AL metro area has a population of 1.1 million. Trinidad and Tobago has a population of 1.3 million.
