Creating a new thread for soccer discussion since the Euroís are done.

Most leagues are in preseason and Sporting KC are currently in a battle for the best record in the league to win the shield. We just sent Busio whoís a young Sporting youth academy player and possible future American star to Venezia to compete in the top division in Italy for a 6.5 million dollar transfer fee with up to $11 million with incentives and a 20% future sell-on rate if they sell him to another team. Not to mention another past youth academy player from Leeís Summit and another possible World Cup starter Erik Palmer-Brown looks to be joining him at Venezia soon as well. If youíre looking for an Italian team to start rooting for with your new Paramount+ subscription they would be a good candidate with some local flavor.

The U.S has built a little power shift in the CONCACAF region with their wins over Mexico lately in Nations and Gold Cup finals and look to be in really good shape heading into the World Cup qualifiers next month.

Messi looks to be on the move as well. Letís hope itís not a worthless one to PSG for everyoneís sake.

Ok, CP feel free to remind me how gay soccer is now. Donít care. Sporting is kicking ass and so is the USA. Itís a good time to be following along. DiscussÖ

He'll be in the squad, but not starting. Super sub, I imagine.

Lineups are out. Should be a great game. Pepi gets the start. Hopefully we can strike quick and early and Pulisic isnít even needed. Letís kick off this rivalry weekend right! USA!!!

First real chance!!

Seems MEX is doing a lot of phumphering in tight precarious spaces. Maybe they trust their foot skills in the defensive area, maybe they will get burned.

Slow defender, big save

Crisper strikes from faster MEX forwards
Better methodical attack from US offensive half.

Bad luck bounce of Robinson header. Prime chance, not much of it.

Usually wouldn't bother as it's a) soccer, and b) st. louis, but since we are in a soccer thread, and the new MLS team will be playing Sporting soon enough, they are touting the progress on the new MLS stadium here.

Pretty good use of land, pretty good financial plan where there fans are funding, not the entire city tax base. Not overbuilt but still nice.

Basically they are using land that has largely been wasted but in a prime location because decades ago there was a plan for a N/S inner corridor highway that got abandoned due to resistance to displacement further up the line. This property was originally an interchange with the major highway, but since it never developed further, it has been a wastefully wide off-ramp into downtown streets. And it's right next to Union Station which is growing as a tourist destination and has a new huge ferris wheel.

At :15 [of the video in the URL], you can see the rest of the unused former 'off-ramp' which will be developed into a shop and dine district.
