USMNT-Scotland Pregame Live Chat over at

Jozy Altidore


If you are anxiously awaiting the USMNT-Scotland match, and want to discuss it and all things U.S. Men’s National Team, then I have the place for you.

Join me over at, where I will be hosting a live chat from 12:30 p.m. until about 1:30 p.m. ET. I will be taking reader questions on today’s match, and all things USMNT.

You can join the Live Chat here.

See you there.


  1. Listen folks, I get that has a reputation, but part of the reason I was hired by them was to help that reputation. I think I can help do that and I think the site is much better than it used to be, and was already heading that way before I joined. There’s a reason I was willing to join.

    Now, this was just a pre-game live chat. It wasn’t meant in any way to replace the SBI Live Q&A. They’re two totally different things. I’ve never done pre-game chats before so I’m not sure why people would jump to the conclusion that we’ll stop having Q&As on SBI. Those will continue.

    Ideally, SBI readers are also heading over to Goal to read the stories/features/columns I write over there, and also join the live chats. The more people reading both sites, the better it is for me and for SBI.

    • Thanks for addressing this Ives. It was a little confusing as to why we were redirected somewhere else for live commentary, but this explanation makes sense. I think I speak for everyone here when I say: We want SBI to stay active and not be replaced by 🙂

      • Ives, it is a common belief on THIS site that the comment sections on are trash and full of trolls. It is nearly impossible to have a constructive conversation via the comment section. THAT is the one major reason we all gravitated to your site. Respectful & educated discourse. To use an analogy, you are forcing a bunch of college seniors to go sit in a middle school lunch room and have constructed, meaningful conversations.

      • I think he’s saying that live chats are populated by 13 year old punks, and what they say is non-sensical bs.

        I think what we’re dealing with here is an old, angry eurosnob with too much time on his hands so he trolls comment boards to post his negative bias.

      • yeah, a big part of the reason i like sbi is the community. i go over to goal now to read ives’ articles. i can handle that, but the community over there is along the same lines as any other web board. if the Q&A & commentaries eventually get moved over to goal that’d be sad.
