Agreed! OFC is a waste of a confederation. The mideast needs its own regional soccer mafia. Anyway back to the drawing board for the USMNT. Let's hope the USWNT does better at the World Cup this time around!

Is it so hard for FIFA to hand our suspensions after the game?

I'm a big soccer fan, though the diving is disgusting. A blight on the game.

I played until I was about 19, in various rec and club leagues. No diving at those levels. Much less at least. If you want to play professional soccer from the midfield forward, it's basically a requirement that you dive.

The US men are getting bad. Dempsey, Jermaine Jones? Just awful at this point.

I used to be a big fan too. But the diving and flopping and the girly play in general got old real fast.

Playing soccer is awesome though. Goalie or bust.

I like soccer, but not the fact diving is part of the game.

So I go to Katz Deli today because we were in NYC and the wife and kid love Adam Richman from Man Vs Food and saw him eat there. HOLLY ****! Who pays $17.99 for a sandwich?

Almost $70 for 3 sandwiches, 3 soda and pickles.

What am I missing?

PS they are rude as hell so your not paying for any kind of service.

EDIT: I put this in the wrong OT thread, mods please fix.

Yeah me too. I loved watching the 2006 finals, was pulling really hard for France because I couldn't stand my obnoxious Italian neighbors. After that, EPL got drastically boring and 2010 world cup got me totally disinterested in soccer.

I love to play soccer, nice competitive sport, but I prefer football.

Didn't believe my eyes when Japan scored.

Also can't believe how bad England choked in the PKs

I'm pretty excited for the US game tomorrow. I'm not the biggest soccer fan in the world, I love playing the game though, and international soccer gets me riled up
