Comparing men's and women's football

Anyway, #Pain for Pulisic. Saw a segment on CNN the other night talking about if he could be the first $100m USA soccer player

Does look an excellent prospect though. His record for his age is good and he's not playing in a joke league either. One to keep an eye on.

ehhh. i think he's alright. speed is his biggest strength. he benefits from playing on such a strong side imo, and of course he looks good when playing with the USMNT because they have like, 3 decent players. maybe he will end up being a great, but my prediction is he tops out as a nice role player for a mid to bottom table team, probably in the Prem.

if people think the English tabloids are bad, just wait. i feel bad for the kid already, it's going to get bad.

I really like Pulisic. Not sure he will be a super player but should have a very good career.

3rd most played sport.

3rd highest average attendances (more than NBA and NHL).

Well I guess that was 1994. Maybe they got sense.

I was surprised. I knew it was growing but 3rd highest played and attended is the equivalent of cricket or rugby here (don't know which one it will be but those are clearly the other two sports in England).

it's quite a bit more popular now, for sure. couple of good vids on how the MLS are building hype around the league, even if i have some issues with the american take on the sport.

I remember seeing the first one a while back. Not knocking their passion but not sure about 'creating' rivalries. Many of them have over 100 years of history, religion, politics and nationality is involved, it's not something you can just pluck out of the air and manufacture. I mean Celtic/Rangers is just an outlet for already existing bigotry and hatred, not the other way round. Most of the typical local rivalries split families & work colleagues, you go through school with it so even if those don't have religious or political sides the emotion is still there. Not going to be the case in the US when everyone on this thread is older than most of their clubs. Not having a go at the Americans, just saying.

USA vs Mexico I can understand. I'm watching the second video now and I can understand why that would be a 'real' rivalry if you get me.
