Yesterday was a wild turn of events in the FIFA mess.
// FC Dallas //
Plenty of good comments from Oscar Pareja in this one. It is nice hearing his rational for why he subbed players the way he did last Friday too.
I always felt like in the end Tesho Akindele would end up going with Canada over the US. He's a smart kid, so it makes sense that he would do the right thing and pick the country that gives him the best shot at playing time.
// MLS //
I get the thought behind this piece but I totally disagree with it right now. The scheduling of this tournament, along with the travel, and MLS roster sizes where they currently are at doesn't necessarily give MLS teams the best chance to handle this tournament in the way I think most fans would want them to.
I've watched a couple Toronto games lately more intentionally and I have to say, when Bradley is on, so is Toronto. They looked very good against San Jose last weekend and I'm starting to drink the TFC kool-aid again.
While Bradley is doing the right things in the midfield for TFC, it is the Italian that is pulling the strings in the attack that is making TFC exciting.
Don't do it DCU. Stay in the District.
// FIFA //
Yesterday was a wild day of emotion for a lot of soccer fans around the globe. On one hand it was exciting and happy but there were plenty of questions left to be answered.
You knew last week that it would really only be a matter of time before it went all the way up to the top to Blatter. Too many people below him would eventually out him.
A lot of people are going to say the reform word over the next few months with FIFA but it may be about so much more than that.
Alright, that should do it for now. What do you all have to say about all of this?
