@SinnerP do you follow the hknt? I was watching tvb pearl news in the states and the trash talking controversy between hk and china during the World Cup qualifier was covered within the first ten minutes of the newscast laugh.gif. Dude from china called the hk goalie a dog. Is it that serious that it made it on the news??? You plan on going to the return leg in hk?

this. all of this. repped.

Anyway, in a game like that, there was definitely a bit time-wasting.  The CHN striker wasn't pleased with that and allegedly called the keeper a "dog" and probably some worse stuff as well.  Not sure what happened next, but I think the keeper mentioned the incident on his blog/FB/whatever, and it sorta snowballed from there.  Given the HK-CHN tension, I guess it became a bigger deal than it really was.  The HKFA quickly tried to diffuse the situation, as did the keeper, saying it wasn't really a big deal... and it really wasn't.  Just your typical on-pitch stuff.  

 

It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, happens in the return leg.  But, no, I won't be going.

It's gotta be hilarious when soccer players meet famous American athletes. Dudes are probably like wtf kinda hormones are they putting in the food there and thank god these guys didn't decide to become soccer players and have dozens of Super Fellaini's running around. Imagine Fellaini ball to a 6'6" super athlete with a 40 inch vertical ruining the spectacle of the game laugh.gif

Also I bet the soccer players despite being world famous aren't the ones that feel like the alphas. The NBA and NFL players are just so damn big and dwarf them laugh.gif

Yeah, you're probably right. He's only considered the greatest to ever grace the worlds most popular sport, while earning hundreds of thousands of Euros a week.

Dude has got to feel like a beta when he meets a larger athlete playing a sport that only one country plays.

You're totally right. Never thought of it that way....

I was unaware every professional soccer player on earth is a possible GOAT like Messi or an elite human like Ronaldo.

 

I know you're offended by my Man U criticisms but relax b it was a generalization, like how most players would rather play for Manchester City than Man U under LVG.

United should get Frank Rijkaard as their new coach. He turned a struggling Barcelona around
post #4165 of 50776

being fast doesn't or tall doesn't mean **** in footy though.

ronaldo isn't ronaldo just because of his athleticism its his skill that makes him ronaldo.  there are plenty of players that are faster or just as fast as ronnie but they arent the same. 

 

 

some of the greatest players in the game like xavi and pirlo who decide matches. they can't do 20 pushups and probably run 5 second 40's.

 

 

thats why footy > any other sport.

 your physical attributes are an afterthought to your skill.  

 

 

if lebron played footy his whole life messi and ronnie would still be the best in this era...

these american athletes have like size 19 shoes..thats not going to do shhh for them in footy

post #4166 of 50776

to be fair, a size 19 foot might help since it provides a wider striking surface

To also be fair American athletes do not just get by on physical ability alone in their respective sports, skill and knowledge separate the best of the best in any sport.

post #4168 of 50776
^Agree wholeheartedly. There's never a middle ground in these arguments for most people.

Pro soccer guys bring up guys like Pirlo and so on and say its all about technique, pro American athletes bring up the physical.

Some of the best players feature guys who manage to take the best of both categories to dominate their respective fields. CR7 is a great athlete in a sport that doesn't necessarily call for it but definitely helps especially when combined with high level skill. LeBron is a great playmaker and just very well rounded in general, add on his rare combo of athletic traits and you get a once in a lifetime player.

I do personally believe that there is a place for great athletes in soccer, if applied properly.
post #4169 of 50776
I know it's all hypothetical but I honestly think America would dominate footy if our best athletes played it, we'd just play a different and "ugly" brand. I think that without a doubt we'd lock it down defensively with insanely fast closeouts and interceptions from fullbacks and midfielders. And out of all the NBA/NFL players at least 2 of them would make for world class CBs that are intelligent and can dominate both aerially and on the ground.

And we'd score in a different way, basically through the air and set pieces and like I said playing super Fellaini ball laugh.gif
post #4170 of 50776

I don't know why but the idea of super Fellaini ball is amazing to me :lol

 

I feel like it would be so ugly to watch but no matter how hard I try I can't look away :x:lol
