USA versus Argentina: Why Not Gamble?!

The Shin Guardian at related • 0 views

I watched part of the US Argentina game a second time, and reflected on some things that had been bouncing around my head for the last 36 hours on what went wrong for the US in this Copa America semifinal. I'll start with the fact that I (and no one else) should have had the expectation that the US was going to win this game.

USA – Cuba Gold Cup preview: The Great Unknown

Last night I was writing a preview of the Gold Cup quarterfinal between the US and Cuba. For Cuba, it was mainly focused on Ariel Martinez, their forward with a solid left foot who was causing a lot of problems for Guatemala from set pieces and whose pass set up Cuba's only goal of the tournament so far.

After much consideration, here are three things that really stood out from the US Haiti match on Friday.

1. Reffing is hard.

2 No really it is. Highly recommend turning on the volume for this one, especially if you watched the game at a bar. (Don't turn the volume on at work, in public, with children around, or if swearing frightens you)

Fuck you, you piece of shit pic.

USA 2, Honduras 1. Some thoughts and highlights after the first US Gold Cup 2015 match.

John Brooks was immense today, especially in the air.The number of crosses and corners he won was slightly ridiculous, especially in the last fifteen minutes. He looked comfortable on the ball and didn't make any silly mistakes. He stepped up as his partner in the middle Ventura Alvarado struggled.

Lots to think about coming into the Gold Cup

It is finally the moment of truth forJurgen Klinsmann. Well, almost. Klinsmann has spent the year since the World Cup (that one where the US got out of the group of death) tinkering with the US first team constantly, much to the annoyance of some USMNT fans.

Do American Soccer Players Have ‘Poker Mania’?

Deuce(s) Wild?!

Recent years have seen a growing number of international soccer stars enter the world of gambling. It may seem strange that soccer players, who specialize in a sport primarily dependent upon skill, should be attracted to a game with a much bigger luck factor. Nonetheless, the thrill of poker certainly seems to tempt the biggest names in soccer notable examples being Ronaldo, Neymar Jr and Suarez.
