    Don't take this the wrong way, but I mean this in all seriousness, go watch a high level European club team, Barcelona and Arsenal are two of the best examples of a high paces attacking, passing/possession focused offense and see if you feel the same way. It's called the Beautiful Game for a reason.

    I mean from a fan's POV. I know they run a lot, but when watching, the action is continuous and slow-paced. Football is discontinuous but higher intensity.
    It's just knowing what you're seeing. When you don't know what's going on, you just look at it like their simply kicking the ball around. The skill at which they play is just amazing.

    It's one of the funniest but yet hardest sports I've ever played. And it's unquestionably dangerous.

    I watched a teammate break both his tibia and fibula in half in practice. Sounded like a car snapped a telephone pole, but worse.

    I also ended up with 18 stitches after a match. Got kicked squarely in the back of my head. And if anything, it knocked more sense into me rather than losing some.

    this times 100% the footwork required for soccer is insane watch a team like Man City and Carlos Tevez work. The problem to the average fan who has never played is they make it look so easy. Just a trap of a 30 yard pass is very diffcult and they do it with their eyes closed. Golf is the hardest game i have played but soccer is the one where you need the most skill to succeed.


    About getting kicked I have tons of bad story's the worst is getting kicked in the nuts with a 30+ mph kick brutal.


    I actually played in this winter league in doors. But it wasn't like normal in doors there was out of bounds and it was incredibility hard to play it was played on a b ball court 4v4 it was much harder to score than it sound.

    I think too many of the people that don't like soccer are too used to watching highlights of the MLS.

    The MLS is really pathetic compared to what you find across the world. Go watch a game from the Premier League and it will likely change your mind. Those teams are far more skilled and play a much more exciting game than what you find from the MLS.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    Dang, warrior is much cooler than tavern keeper. Plus, if my name was spelled with an 'i' people would actually say it right.

    Got my start back in Jr. High and High School watching German League games they used to show on PBS, back in the day. Franz Beckenbauer anyone?

    Yep, true, but if you hear the name Krüger (or Krueger) here, you wouldn't think of tavern-keeper or potter. The word itself is too old-fashioned and nobody would use it in this context anymore. It's just a name, pretty much like Williams or Johnson or whatever.
    Thank you Jeff.

    this is so frustrating out playing Japan so much but no results to show for it. Chaney had to finish that header. Sucks for Chaney she cant finish hopefully Alex Morgan steps up for her.

    We have to eventually finish a goal off.

    that was such a cheap goal by Japan this is sad. USA has out played Japan by so much but not taking advantage of chances could cost them the game.

    Great game by both teams! First equalizer may have been cheap, but it was a US mistake, they went defensive and paid the cost. USA clearly dominated with its attack, but Japan persevered with its patience. Hopefully women's soccer continues to get exciting, needs more flashy passes .

    Every tackle on an unimpeded path to goal that results in a red card should be a PK.

    I'm aware, but Morgan's attack there was a better goal scoring chance than 90% of the penalties in the box that actually end up PKs.

    Yea but it was a good play by the Japanese Defender, who had no other choice of stopping it, USA also got a good chance with the free kick, but nothing happened. Not the best analogy but its almost like giving a hard foul in basketball. In Japan's POV they had no other choice.

    I blame 1070 for the loss. After the US scored in extra time, they cut away for the WNBA just in time for Japan to tie it up again. WHAT THE HECK!
