I'm sure you'd be happy with constant underachievement and losing to clubs like the likes of Midtjylland,Sunderland,Norwich,Bournemouth,Middlesbrough on a somewhat normal basis...>D

Me.

Every once in a while a Mexican club will make it to the final of the Libertadores. First was Cruz Azul in 2001, then came Chivas in 2010, and last year Tigres lost against River Plate. Toluca looked good yesterday, my club is in the same group so we'll be playing them soon.

Most-watched live soccer games on US TV for weekend of 2/12 to 2/14

Of the soccer games shown live on US cable and satellite channels last weekend, seven of the top 10 most-watched games were televised on NBCSN. Six of them were Premier League matches, while the seventh was the Olympic qualifying game between the United States and Mexico women’s teams. It was an exceedingly good Sunday morning for NBCSN’s coverage of the Premier League as a combined audience of 1.6 million people watched the triple header featuring Arsenal vs. Leicester (7am-9am ET), Aston Villa vs. Liverpool (9-11am ET) and Manchester City vs. Spurs (11am-1pm ET). On the other end of the spectrum, the Bundesliga suffered another disappointing weekend. This time, an average of 32,000 people watched the Bundesliga matches across FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2 and FOX Deportes. Even the clash between Bayern Munich and Augsburg was only watched by 38,000 people. Altogether, the most-viewed soccer game on any FOX network last weekend was the 56,000 who watched Schalke vs. Mainz on Friday, February 12. Unfortunately for FOX and the Bundesliga, the audience who tuned in to Bayer Leverkusen against Bayern Munich two weeks ago didn’t help increase FOX’s numbers this past weekend. At this point, you have to wonder whether FOX Sports has given up on trying to promote the league. 1 Man City vs. Spurs 725,000 NBCSN 11am-1pm Sun, Feb 14
28 Fulham vs. QPR 3,000 beIN SPORTS 7:30-9:30am Sat., Feb 13

I enjoy some Adventure as well, but the humor in Regular Show (especially in the early seasons) is outstanding.

Man Utd just isn't the same anymore. I don't doubt that they will get good again, they're too rich and proud of a club to let that happen. But the 13 titles in 23 years United? That's not coming back, and I hope some fans realize this and accept that. Sir Alex ain't walking through that door.

I don't think this is even possible in the modern English game.

United yes were successful based on SAF, but because United generated very high revenues from it's own performances, it allowed them to be shark in the pond. Now with other clubs with money (self made or sugar daddy'd) and with the new TV deal etc coming into effect, I think it will be very difficult for any club in the prem to just consistently dominate year after year.

USL Announces Partnership with Alianza de Futbol
Release: 02/18/2016 Print RSS

USLSoccer.com Staff Report
Thursday, February 18, 2016

TAMPA, Fla. – The United Soccer League today announced a partnership with Alianza de Futbol, the leading national organization dedicated to the support and development of amateur Hispanic soccer in the United States, to become its exclusive domestic professional league partner.

The partnership will allow the USL and its teams access to the hundreds of thousands of Hispanic families that participate in Alianza events across the country each year, and the ability to recruit and sign the top prospects identified at these events.

The agreement will also offer the opportunity for the USL’s National Scouting Network to take part in POWERADE® Sueño Alianza showcase matches.

RELATED: USL Anuncia Convenio con Alianza de Futbol
“We look forward to working with Alianza to identify undiscovered, talented Hispanic soccer players and provide them the opportunity to launch their professional careers in the USL,” said USL President Jake Edwards. “Many highly talented young Hispanic players have been discovered through the Alianza program, including those who have gone on to play in MLS and Liga MX. We look forward to continuing that success in the USL.”

For more than a decade, Alianza de Futbol has provided a platform to support the development of amateur Hispanic soccer in the United States. The organization sponsors tournaments – including POWERADE® Sueño Alianza the largest scouting program in the United States dedicated to providing talented Hispanic players in the U-16, U-19 and U-22 age groups a once-in-a-lifetime free opportunity to be seen by top coaches and scouts.

Alianza de Futbol events attract over 220,000 players annually, with more than 1 million Hispanic players having participated in an Alianza event over the past decade. With its partnership with the USL, those players will have a clear path to reach the professional ranks, while also increasing awareness of the league and its teams in the large Hispanic soccer market.

RELATED: USL Set for New Season with Nike Ordem 3
“We are looking forward at Alianza to partner with USL to continue to provide new opportunities to the Hispanic communities. Our new U-22 age group launching this year will provide a direct path to USL & PDL clubs to the best players in Alianza,” said Joaquin Escoto, Managing Director of Alianza de Futbol.

The 2016 USL season will kick off on Friday, March 25 as 29 teams begin their pursuit of the 2016 USL Championship. The six-month regular season will include 435 games, with the top eight teams in the Eastern and Western Conferences advancing to the 2016 USL Playoffs.

For more information and cities to register starting February 22nd for the Alianza free tryouts visit alianzadefutbol.com.

I knew tigres was losing that in argentina after they missed those clear opportunities in the first half mean.gif

Turned off the damn gaame at half time.

Losing a final in south america in true mexican fashion.

Xavi was also quoted recently saying Verratti and Dybala have Barca DNA to fit right in, but that Pogba has a differently style

Side note:

My organic chemistry professor and I chop it up about footy all the time, and he recently requested me on Twitter and said we should watch the CL final together over some beers. He's an awesome professor and a really cool dude.

A lot of the info I get that I talk to him about is posted in this thread from you guys, so thank you for helping seal the deal on getting a sweet letter of recommendation from him tongue.gif

Oh yes I fully agree, that's what I was alluding to when I said Man Utd can't replicate that dominance. It's crazy how it's been 23 years and yet the champion list goes:

 

13 United

4 Chelsea

3 Arsenal

2 Man City

1 Blackburn Rovers (born year ftw)

 

West Ham has big plans, although I don't know how strong their fanbase is. Liverpool is looking for a Klopp resurgance, and hopefully, both Kroenke and Wenger will get their heads out of their ***** and spend more money on bringing in top-class players. Even with City bring Pep in, I think it will soon be realized he can't come in and just dominate like he did with Barca and Bayern.
