    They were mediocre against Spain and got some help from the officials.

    Will need to be much better the rest of the way

    Pretty much my reaction. That ticky-tack call which gave s the second goal prevented us from having to salvage the match in ET. Also, you can't concede boneheaded goals against the likes of France, England, and Doucheland.

    Butt hurt about what? You immediately brought up the men's team with the same ignorance you were spouting in that thread. And I did offer something. And called you out for trolling.

    Figure it out.

    Also.. why would it be ignorant of me to not start a USA women's thread? Do you know what the word means?

    Back in 2011-2012, I was on the "I want to sleep with Hope Solo" wagon. Unfortunately, times change, and no one likes her anymore. Otherwise, I could have easily started a women's thread.

    She is also a perfect topic for this site, because, she is married to noted douchebag Jerramy Stevens.

    They looked devoid of ideas and thought they could muscle through. No pace up top slowed down transitions and opportunities to break lines as well.

    Found it a strange line up for the tactics deployed (playing from the back and then trying to play behind)

    France will shut them down if they come out that way

    I would definitely say that a lineup which doesn't include Carly Lloyd as a starter is not one they intend to use going forward.

    She's sort of a super sub at the moment, but needs to start against France. The bigger issue is Morgan and her injury.

    You guys thought that was a ticky tack call? The Spanish player raked the outside of Lavelle's knee with her studs out. That's a foul. The ref had a very good view of it and made the right call.

    If that exact same thing happens anywhere else on the pitch you would expect that to be called, wouldn't you? If it's a foul anywhere else why shouldn't it be called when it happens in the 18 yard box?

    I didn't say ticky tack.

    I didn't see it as "raked" by any means. Felt soft.. and very fortunate.

    Not saying it's a bad call, just a fortunate one. Seen refs smirk at those reactions far more often than blowing the whistle

    Fair enough. You didn't say ticky tack, Threedee did. What you said was that they got some help from the officials, which to me seems like you are implying that they benefitted from some bad (or ticky tack) calls. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • On to the final for the USA!

    I thought the offsides to call England's second goal back was pretty iffy. I don't know if I missed a replay but the one shot they showed, man it was like a hand that was offsides? Pretty weak. The VAR penalty call was more of the same, but I understand it being called. However, speaking to the ref, if you're going to give that you have to give a red card not a yellow. Last defender and an obvious goal scoring opportunity. Glad the keeper made a big save.

    Last defender red cards are if that last defender purposefully fouls the opponent. Think you can argue the defender was trying for the ball.

    Definitely a pen though.

  • The most impressive part of watching our women's team play is they literally had no weak link at any time on the pitch at any time of the tournament.

    While some of the matches were competitive throughout the tournament, the other teams had 3-4 good to great players but glaring holes at the other positions.

    In soccer, this is really what separates the good from the great, elite front line starters and depth..........and this US team had it in spades all over their roster. Impressive.

    I know you're a troll, but the women's World Cup matches have had higher ratings than the men's for a while now, and the final yesterday had higher ratings than the men's final two years ago.

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live- ... gs-1222814

    And if you're referring to soccer ratings in general for MLS and EPL matches broadcast in the US, there's nothing to brag about there either, it's bad all the way around.

    But I know, you're just here to troll until you get blacklisted again. God speed.

    EPL ratings are through the roof..

    And while the message is abrasive, there is a certain level of truth.

    If yesterday was the mens final the nation would've been at a stop for the match

    I know you're a troll, but the women's World Cup matches have had higher ratings than the men's for a while now, and the final yesterday had higher ratings than the men's final two years ago.

    And if you're referring to soccer ratings in general for MLS and EPL matches broadcast in the US, there's nothing to brag about there either, it's bad all the way around.

    But I know, you're just here to troll until you get blacklisted again. God speed.


    EPL ratings are through the roof..

    And while the message is abrasive, there is a certain level of truth.

    If yesterday was the mens final the nation would've been at a stop for the match


    What's abrasive is calling women's soccer objectively awful to watch. It tells me peaches 1. hasn't watched the US women play and 2. knows nothing about the sport.

    I understand the revenue disparity. The men's world cup earned something like 8 billion over it's four year cycle, the women's world cup earned 115 million.

    Doesn't mean the US women's team shouldn't earn as much as the men's, as THAT is chopped up by TV ad revenue, as I pointed out the women get higher ratings then the men.

    I agree they should make as much, but if the Men were equally successful there would be no conversation here.

    That is because many people don't find the women's game as entertaining.

    For the Super Bowl yes, for a Soccer game that wasn't an Olympic event no. The Nation doesn't stop for the NBA finals, or the World Series which used to lock up the Network it was on and bring in huge ratings.

    Fair enough... the soccer world in this nation would stop and the ratings would rival the super bowl. The world cup final ratings in this country already do and that's with the us team long out of it.

    I don't think people appreciate how many soccer fans there are here because they associate too closely with the mls

    I think it has a lot to do with split allegiance and the interest due to that. Example being a World Series with the Red Sox and Yankees versus one with the Nationals and Rangers on a smaller scale and not world wide. The melting pot here for interest in teams outside the US is huge and not as much internal. Casual Fans tune in to high profile World Series and NBA Championships such as Lakers Celtics as an example. The casual person doesn't understand the game of Soccer as much and the teams as well how they are assembled etc.

    IMO we need to stop comparing men's and women's sports, it's a little misogynistic. Why do we do that? Why can't we just enjoy each sport on it's own merits and levels of skill and excitement.

    Do you guys go to AAA baseball games or junior league hockey and yell "MAN THESE KIDS SUCK, THEY'RE NOT AS GOOD AS THE PROS, THIS IS UNWATCHABLE!!"

    No, you enjoy the talent level for what it is.............an enjoyable sporting event with plenty of skill, competition and effort by the athletes taking part.

    And anyone watching our women's national team play soccer cannot possibly tell me they don't perform at an extremely high skill level. For their sport, the highest skill level in the history.

    I watched the games and outside of a few frustrating moments where it felt stagnant, I was impressed and entertained.

    However, while you and I agree on this, to peaches point the rest of the soccer viewing population is still tepid to it

    Right, for women.

    You put them up against a men's team and they'd get hammered 25-0.


    Nobody is arguing that because it's not the point
