  1. If this is in the long-term plans of Mourinho, this has to happen. If he coaches the USMNT in 2018, the US could seriously win the world cup. Exciting stuff.

  2. Arshavin can do things on his “bad days” that LD just cannot do. Donovan is a great player and probably America’s best of all-time, but Arshavin is better. Quicker, more agile, more of a scorer (i.e. not from the penalty spot)

  3. Those aren’t Special Forces those are Special Operations. There is a difference.
    Our Special Forces are known as SF/Green Berets.

    I’ll flash my importance and say I’ve worked will all those listed except the Israeli SF.
    It is the US hands down followed by SAS and then the Dutch SF.

    The Polish SF have lost more guys to alcohol poisoning in Afghanistan than fighting if that tells you anything.

  4. Bocanegra has brought that American custom of conceding within 5 minutes to St Etienne…don’t think it was his fault though.

  5. Go look at what Arsenal paid for Arshavin… same age, fairly close in skill, go look, its more then you would think. The market is inflated for ALLL players
