Minnesota’s Christian Ramirez to Join US Men’s Soccer Team

Minnesota United’s striker Christian Ramirez will be named to the US Men’s Soccer Team, according to a report from Minnesota-based outlet FiftyFive.One.

A little late in my opinion. We could have used him in World Cup qualifying. Now he’ll have to play a year or two of meaningless national team games. And they are calling him in months after the season is over so he’s unlikely to be in top shape (like all other MLS players who will be in camp too.) The intelligence of USA-American soccer coaches never ceases to amaze me.

“If correct, the call-up will mark the first international opportunity for the Garden Grove, California native, who led all US-eligible players in MLS with 14 goals from open play during the regular season. (CJ Sapong and Jozy Altidore posted higher totals, but netted three goals apiece from penalty kicks.)”

My opinion is that the selection process is politically rigged to pass financially valuable appearances to friends of friends and son’s of friends, associates, etc. There’s almost no value in a non World Cup national team selection, hence he’s suddenly called up. He’s got the wrong agent. Just my opinion and I have no proof of this and could be wrong.

Several Jerseys Torn at Swiss Game

At the Switzerland vs France game a few days ago, 4 Swiss players had their jerseys torn!  Apparently Puma made these jerseys.

Xherdan Shaqiri takes dig at Puma after four different Swiss players’ jerseys rip during draw with France and stated: “I hope Puma don;t produce condoms!”

I’ve personally never seen a problem quite like that in a single game. Must just be cheaply made. In this game the ball even tore!

But honestly I think its great that they tear that quick, shows the refs that they’re getting pulled on by the opponents!

Soccer Violence, is it necessary?

soccer violenceIt’s 2016 and it’s sad to say Humans are worse than animals!

Russian and English fans have been caught up in horrific scenes in Marseille before their opener at the city’s Stade Velodrome.

One might think in this day and age human beings have accomplished so much and evolved into intelligent beings, but these acts of senseless violence says otherwise. Truly a shame what these idiots did by beating beat up people and leaving them in pool of blood, and destroying the streets all because of their stupid soccer team.

Soccer fans are insane. This happens all the time. It’s beyond absurd.  I think it’s just dumb and stupid! Why destroying property and beating people up to death?? Bunch of idiots. It’s just a damn sport/game. Douchebag hooligans!
