    The US Men just finished up two friendlies and the results were not promising: 2-0 loss to Japan and 0-0 tie with Saudi Arabia. My already low expectations for the upcoming World Cup were supported by their performance and made even lower if possible. I'm not seeing how this will get fixed between now and the first match with Wales on Nov 21, and if it keeps going down this path we will be lucky to score a goal much less win a match in group play.

        Nice article about the power rankings for the upcoming World Cup.

        Can't find too much to argue with actually.


          Yeah. They seem to rate both Brazil and Argentina who haven't faced a European team in a long while.
          England shouldn't be discounted. Either France. So much depth. I like the look of Germany at the moment. Denmark and Serbia both had good recent campaigns.

          Back in Woso. USA meets England soon in front of a full house at Wembley. 87,000? Gonna be a great match. There's history between these 2. I still occasionally rewatch that semifinal from France 2019.
          Ellen White nearly willed them to win. Shockin' PK by Houghton. Oh well.

          Matildas also play South Africa in London, the day after so Sam Kerr should be able to watch her girlfriend Kristie Mewis come off the bench.

            35 mins played...
            Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
            Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.


              4 nil 90+4

              think they got this one!!!

                  "Wait a second. Did I hear you say Sam Kerr and the Matildas are playin' South Africa this Saturday at Kingsmeadow? Tell me again. Cor blimey!"

                      OK. The Lionesses are now officially part of Season3 of Ted Lasso. 😉


                        It'll be on LIKE DONKEY KONG in about 23 hours under the arch at Wembley...

                        World champs V Euro champs.

                        90,000 + crowd.

                        Bright V Sophia Smith

                        Daly V Ashley Hatch

                        Hemp V Girna

                        Walsh V Kristie Mewis

                        Duels all over the pitch.

                        Now hope I can inveigle a stream somewhere. Tried the FA Player. But no dice. FOX sport. Need a provider. DAZN not involved.

                        Players from both teams will wear teal armbands to show support for sexual abuse survivors who came forward to the latest bombshell report in USA.

                        So AUKUS takes over London tommorrow. Aussies will take on South Africa the next day at Kingsmeadow. Sam Kerr's home ground. 6,000 odd capacity. Hope loads of expats can fill the seats. Mary Flower to start and hopefully star!!!

                          We're really looking forward to tomorrow's match especially in light of the recent horrible news concerning US Soccer's treatment of their players. Here's hoping for a fun and entertaining game with no injuries!

                            Think we're gunna see a Steely showin' from USWNT.
                            Can never write them off. My prediction? 2-1 USA.
                            A Pinoe PK. Sophia Smith scores. Mead scores.


                              Oh. I'm a silly Billy. Thought we had done our OPTUS Sport account after watchin' the Euros final. But we're still juiced up so gonna wake up to 6am start. Head says the Yanks. Heart Hope's the Lionesses.

                              SWEEEEEEEEEET CAROLIIIIIIIÌNE!!!! 🦁🦁🦁


                                Wembley absolutely chockers!!!

                                PROTECT THE PLAYERS



                                look forward to see Trinity Rodman start
