    It's never to late to go back to that conversation.

    I didn't watch it but if you don't think it's crazy or exceptional you're obviously biased against Americans

    I'm glad Marsch went to Europe. Our hope that we might develop an American coach that is worth a damn.

    Are you telling me that David Wagner and Bob Bradley aren't good enough

    Is Wagner all that American? I know technically he is, but I bet he identifies as German first. Bradley was probably viewed too negatively, but it's not like he'd come back as USMNT coach IMO.

    James hasn't impressed on the right. Pulisic would definitely start for United imo (not that that's a high bar, beating out Pereira and Lingard...)

    Alas, everything must be a performance and everything must be recorded.

    Of course you understand the lack of reinforcement by Tottenham. It was unnecessary because Daniel Levy is a genius.

    This Van Dijk hype is getting ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, he's a fantastic player, but he's not the second coming of Maldini.

    Agreed that's Martinez.

    I think they're being facetious

    They're absolutely being facetious. Them being facetious is still a nod to where he is.

    I think it’s kind of a silly comparison to begin with but I also think there are very few defenders in history that would be able to compete with Messi for the ballon d’or after the season he just had. van Dijk’s impact was pretty profound and he deserves all the plaudits he’s received given what he’s accomplished and how he’s performed at all levels over the last few years. Obviously he’s a little late to the party so he’ll have to keep it up for a long time but I don’t think there’s any overhyping going on.

    Did I just read someone comparing Virgil van Dijk to Maldini?

    Nice cross by Lodi who's quite underrated on here.
