    lol who gives a fuck about PSG? Why doesn't he go to a top 3 PL team?

    Because Wenger would just misuse him on their way to another disappointing season before they loan Neymar to PSG anyway.

    When you're one of the best in the world you don't care about domestic titles. PSG are competitive in the Champions League and the easier domestic schedule will help him stay fresh and pad his stats. He wants golden balls and he doesn't want to be under Messi's shadow any more.

    As for the PL you need that Arab Oil mega-billionaire money for that sort of thing. Only Man City really have that currently.

    Was hoping for that Gunners rage on Twitter.

    A man under a 5-game suspension for touching that ref who sent him off.

    Yeah Ronaldo is in big trouble.

    He should know better by now that the spotlight is on him and you can't do that shit.

    These dumb ass clubs voted for closing the transfer window before the first game. This shit makes no sense since it only affects premier league clubs, which means that a coutinho Barcelona situation can still happen. But under the new rules Liverpool wouldn't be able to buy a replacement if he were sold.

    Speaking of the World Cup...

    What are the odds of the next one having Brazil vs. Germany on the Finals and Brazil taking it?

    All the USA has to do is draw or defeat Trinidad tomorrow and the US will then qualify for the World Cup.

    Did anyone see the condition of Trinidad's field/pitch? The running track was almost like a moat with all the water surrounding it!

    Go USA! Slowly putting the pieces together. It does matter though, they will be put in the group of the death no matter what place they finish.

    Australia barely beat Syria.

    Ange ran 3 backs, a stopper, 5 midfielders and a full forward.

    That's called playing Football Manager drunk.

    He even had Mooy who's a big reason Huddersfield are in the Premiere League this year on the bench....

    Now they have to eliminate themselves with Honduras now (which is perfectly winnable for the Aussies)

    We have a 4-4-2 side, 4-5-1 even. We're not a 3 back team. We're not Brazil. Win or lose Ange needs the sack. We have too much good youth on the bench because he's flogging 36 year old horses.

    I just realized, why does uefa get 13 teams for the WC??

    Why not give an extra to Africa or something

    Usually it's because of the higher quality of teams playing there?

    I mean come on, even CONCACAF gets 3.5 tickets, which I believe is WAAAAAY too many for the quality of the area.

    And Africa tends to be a little bit overrated, Ghana in 2010 has literally been the only African team to access the top 4 in over 70 years of history.

    New Zealand are pretty good for a small country where football isn't the main sport.

    Because the 15th best European team would beat the third best African team. If any area needs more it's the Americas as basically every South and Central American team is solid. Africa and Asia are weak football zones but they occasionally produce good teams.

    A lot of it has to do with development, like having football academies, a strong domestic league, travel opportunities for exposure. Europe has all that in spades. Lots of African nations overachieve because of low GDP

    The French also poach lots of the African talent.

    I'm not sure if I should be salty because somehow Argentina qualified or if I should be happy because they have a great offensive team when it's setup right and we might see a Brazil vs. Argentina match in the World Cup.

    Thanks for the insight guys! I guess when you look at it, the current system kinda makes sense. If anything maybe you can play around with an extra slot and maybe switch a playoff position or whatever.


    The US being out is actually a blessing in disguise because they're gonna have to try harder next time and not be a laughing stock!

    LOL no, except for Mexico and Costa Rica (I was gonna include the US but it's apparent they have gotten WORSE) the rest are a bunch of jobbers. I fully expect Panama to gather 3 losses and GTFO in a hurry in the next WC.

    Sandbagging to not go to Russia confirmed. How did they manage to mess up this badly!?

    Central America I agree. However South America is stronger than Africa Asia and Oceania. Uruguay Colombia Paraguay and now Peru are better than most non euro countries in addition to Brazil and Argentina

    Is not just tradition but competition. New Zealand is playing Peru for a spot. Peru has played 16 games against all South American countries (including Brazil twice) meanwhile New Zealand has played 4 games against Fiji and Solomon Islands ROFL
