  • Why is it that soccer is the only sport with a world club cup?

    Best answer: Basketball can be played with a ball. The fact is the US is the biggest market for all the other major sports and they do not see a need to promote a world club championship

  • Should slide tackling be banned in football?

    Best answer: Nope. Slide tackles today are cleaner than they've ever been. If you ban those, then you might as well ban two players going up for headers as concussions are more dangerous than a broken bone.

    As someone who played 40 years ago how bad slide tackles were. Heck, even 30 years ago I recall being taken down from behind with a flying slide tackle taking out my knee. I had to leave the game and the guy only got a yellow. Today that would be a straight game and likely multiple game suspension. It's been cleaned up greatly in the last decades.

  • Why does the USA not player soccer that much?

    Best answer: When soccer became huge worldwide, the US was already heavily involved in four huge sports, both as players and spectators, two of those four being mega huge. There just wasn't enough market share to let in another sport in such a huge way, because people aren't going to just up and walk away from things they deeply care about as part of their personal traditions and national culture.

    Seriously, if some other sport came along and that sport played its games at the same time as soccer, would you give up soccer? Would you just abandon a love you've grown up fostering with passion and even fanaticism and that's sewn into your traditions and even personal identity? I don't think so. But that's what you'd have to do because there are just too many games whose times conflict, especially if now were 50 or 75 years ago when people could only spectate when the games actually happened as there was no Internet and no way to spectate those games after-the-fact, not that people are keen on delaying watching a game instead of watching it live now.

    By the way, it was the US that first made professional sports a thing. When soccer really started catching on globally, it was in a world where the US was the only country making any kind of big deal about sports as a national pastime, particularly for mass spectating via media, which at the time was radio. Almost the entire rest of the world hadn't caught that bug yet. Soccer caught on instead of one of America's sports, though, because America's biggest sports at the time, baseball and football, have a lot of equipment needed to play properly, making them expensive to play. Soccer can be played anywhere with just a plain old round ball that kids play with, not some niche ball that isn't good for anything but playing one specific sport. That made soccer accessible even in the poorest of countries.

  • How impressive was Spurs last minute victory against 19th placed Fulham?

    Best answer: I thought that it was quite impressive given the circumstances. We were without 4 key players Son,Kane, Lucas Moura and Sissoko(who's been very impressive in the midfield holding role as opposed to how he flopped as a winger) and we were playing away from home. So I thought this was a good win under the circumstances.

    I wouldn't say that Fulham outplayed us for most of the game, Spurs had much more possesion and we were in their half for most of the game, much more than they were in in our half of the field. Fulham did have some dangerous chances though, that is true but that's not too surprising given that they do have a strong attack. Babel (twice) and Schurrle (once) had Fulham's best chances to score, Spurs also had dangerous scoring opportunities with Llorente's free header which was missed and with Rose hitting the crossbar. Also remember Llorente's own goal was gift to Fulham out of nothing, they didn't score a goal themselves in this game.

    However, the fact that it was 1-1 with 90 minutes played and that we got the win we were searching for in injury time does demonstrate that we showed some strong character and that we never gave up the cause. So your point about us still winning when we are not playing the best football we can play, is right on the money. This game wasn't all positive at the end either, Dele Alli pulling his hamstring late on is further bad news for Spurs.

    Looking towards the Chelsea game, I don't think it will be an easy game at all. We will potentially be without Son, Kane, Lucas Moura, Sissoko and Alli for that game, that is 5 key players in midfield and attack. Despite Chelsea having problems with their strikers not being on form, they will still be a formidable force given the strength of the rest of their team and the fact that they will be playing at Stamford Bridge, their home. I am still trying to be optimitic that we will advance instead of them into the next round, but I don't expect it to be easy at all.

  • Should I start soccer at 16?

    I started at the varsity level in 9th grade (still Jr high for my area) without ever touching a soccer ball before, I did it because I got some expensive cleats on sale. I didnt know I would make the team and let alone start at the top level. It was all based on natural talent. I only knew how to dribble and pass after the season. I did fairly well during the season. All I want to know is what I should work on, or if I should try out for my high school team as my area is very competitive in soccer. I have a lot of speed and endurance and played the forward position the whole time. I also might want to be a goalie as I have very large hands, played wide receiver in football, and am fairly tall, but I dont want to just start a new position during tryouts. What things should I work on to improve before tryouts which are in about a month, or if I should tryout at all?

  • Suggestions for talking to my soccer coach about switching positions?

    Next soccer season will be my Junior year and I want to see some changes. I’m currently a target forward for my team and after playing as a winger during my breaks I’ve discovered that I am a better winger. There’s this guy on my team that is in that winger position and also happens to be my roommate but he’s not as good as I am. So how should I go about asking my coach if I can try being put in games as a winger?
