    And now they're the biggest club in Manchester and one of the two(ish?) best teams in the world, probably the favorite to win the champions league. 

    They always were the biggest club in Manchester, United are located in Salford. When Tevez moved from United to City they had a billboard which said 'Welcome to Manchester'.

    Plus is there another PL league team that has the history with US players as Fulham? Right off the top of my head I can think of McBride, Dempsey, Bocanegra, Ream, and I think Keller played there for a year or 2. So really not just US players but some of the really best US players. 

    There is also Marcus Hahnemann, Eddie Lewis, Eddie Johnson, Emerson Hyndman and Luca de la Torre.

    Are you a Man City fan or Chelsea fan? I finally got back into the Premier League this season after a cool decade of not watching. I made the decision to watch as many teams as possible this year and then pick a team to follow. Would’ve been Fulham (saw McBride and Bocanegra play at Craven Cottage back in 2004) but it appears they were relegated a few yeas back. I won’t get into reasoning but after careful consideration I think I’m going with Chelsea. 

    Fulham play today against Cardiff. If they win today and beat Brentford next week they will be back in the Premier League.

    So what is his condition? I have heard they really don't know. Yes they know he cramps, but whats the cause.  

    A condition called isolated myopathy — where the blood cells don't work properly — caused his body to break down. “It took some time for it to get really bad,” Thatch said. “It started off like I was just really tired, and then that tired started turning to crampin

    Huge new recruit for Billiken men's soccer--Patrick Weah of the class of 2020--was a high school All American and has big time experience and success as a goal scorer and assist man. Kevin beat out some of the biggest programs in the country for this incredible young player.

    Patrick, a 16-year-old striker, is in his first year with the Minnesota United academy after playing for Wayzata High School. With 20 goals and 15 assists in 2017, he led the Trojans to the Class AA championship, and he captured the state’s Gatorade Player of the Year Award. He’s now living in Maple Grove.

    I also heard a lot of professional leagues are actively discouraging kids from playing college soccer because the college schedule is so F’ed up that it leads to a lot of injuries and bad habits, etc. I love soccer but don’t follow as closely as I probably should. Can anybody with more knowledge confirm or deny this? I do know a lot of college coaches have been lobbying for schedule changes.

    But the far bigger and more pressing question hanging over men’s college soccer right now must be decided by a more powerful panel: The NCAA Division I Council, which was all set to vote this week on the “21st Century Model” proposal to extend the men’s D-I season to a two-semester (fall-spring) schedule, with potentially dramatic benefits for both the college game and American soccer as a whole.

    Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, that vote has been tabled indefinitely. And as understandable as that is given the wider situation, it’s yet another delay in a reform effort that’s run some seven years – and literally can’t happen soon enough, given the aforementioned wider situation.

    Stone has a little Grawer in her.  No matter what you can do, if you aren't doing the work of the court you don't play.

    Wilken outplayed Flowers all season.  It is up to Flowers to have a Wilken summer and come out like the A10 all defensive player she can be next season.

    Stewart is just scratching the surface.  She has the ability to get hot and carry this team to a tourney title.  We are not that far removed talent wise from the top teams in Fordham, VCU and Dayton.

    Martinez needs to start scoring more. In 322 minutes she has 14 pts, 6 of those were from free throws. Too many times she looks at passing, especially when the clock is running down.

  9. The sports bras worn by the players were created to measure their performance on the pitch, either in training or in games. The support has a GPS system inside that allows to collect all the necessary information about the physical state of the player, and sends it in real time to a program that is controlling them.

  10. Field hockey plays on a watered turf field at Sport Port.

    Watered pitches are safe surfaces, as the water layer absorbs impact better than a sand-filled pitch does. A watered pitch also gives players the ability to control their slides.

    Falls on these surfaces are less likely to leave players with abrasion injuries to their skin, as the surface of watered pitches is softer and cooler to play on.

    Hockey balls move at a consistent speed on watered surfaces as the grass blades form a denser, faster surface without sand infill.

    A faster, more responsive style of play develops on a water pitch, with a ball that runs more freely than it does on sand, where it can become sticky during the game.

    Players find their sticks last longer on wet turfs, without being worn by friction on sand, reducing the cost of replacing sticks.

    The ball bounces consistently on the denser watered grass surface and at an appropriate height, compared with the ball bounce produced on a dry pitch.
