    Eto’o hattrick against Utd was the weirdest i’ve ever seen.

    God that 5v0 loss to Fulham was grim.

    Just glad it's Pogrebnyak on there against us as it looks a bit better than Odemwingie...

    I was just kidding when I said Liverpool (and City) were safe from relegation last week. The code for that bit isn't ready yet but they're definitely not safe going in to this week. There's no need to panic, they probably will be before long.

  • senseisquinty

    What the text says:

    At the beginning of their career changes, Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira had strained relationships with their former Arsenal coach, Arsène Wenger. Today, as Nice and Monaco's coachs, the former gunners admit that the Alsatian had a big influence on them.

    When Didier Drogba was 23 he was a 1 in 4 striker for Guingamp.

    Miroslav Klose was a 1 in 3 striker for Kaiserslautern.

    If Rashford is even close to Kane's output by the time he's Kane's age, he'll be considered a star. And he may just well succeed. But this is a pointless comparison that tells us absolutely nothing.

  • MarcSlayton

    It is no secret that Rashford broke through to Prem level first team at a much earlier stage than Kane. No-one regards Kane as being a precocious player. Kane is rated cos he is a very regular goalscorer for quite a while now. Rashford still has not reached that consistency yet. Only time will tell whether he does or not.

  • tyoyous

  • stumac85
    1 points Jan 13,2019, 5:08pm

    Kane relies on his finishing ability. Rashford is more of an explosive pacey striker. Forwards in Kane's mould generally peak later and last longer. Forwards who rely on pace hit the stage early (Owen as an example) start declining around 29-30 y.o. Then you have freaks like Ronaldo and Messi who have everything and can continue being world class deep into their 30s.

    Rashford at the start of this season was 3 months younger than Kane at the start of 14/15, if we're comparing full seasons this is the equivalent one. Rashford is 21 right now, and while he obviously started his career far ahead of Kane at an equivalent stage, Kane experienced a sudden spike right about now, and Rashford isn't going to finish the season with Kane's tally.

    Going further: Kane's 14/15: ~21 and 1 month - 21 and 10 months, 21 goals in 34 PL appearances.

    Rashford's 18/19: ~20 and 10 months - 21 and 7 months, 6 goals in 18 PL appearances so far.

    Rashford is at precisely the point when Kane kicked on and established himself as a top striker. Or do those 3 months change everything? I have no idea why people keep pushing this idea that Rashford is way ahead comparatively, like fucking hell open Wikipedia it's not difficult.

    People underestimate the effect of travel on MLS teams. We had back-to-back away matches in Orlando and Seattle this past season. Our guys looked drained in that second match and lost fairly heavily.

    Also, MLS limits the number of private flights that a team can take per season, so squads are frequently flying commercial to and from cities.

    People underestimate the effect of travel on MLS teams. We had back-to-back away matches in Orlando and Seattle this past season. Our guys looked drained in that second match and lost fairly heavily.

    Also, MLS limits the number of private flights that a team can take per season, so squads are frequently flying commercial to and from cities.

    Living in the Scottish central belt you can get to about 90% of the 42 league club’s stadiums within two hours drive. Most 7:45 midweek kick offs you’d be back before midnight. In the US you’d have to take about three days off work by the looks of it.

    Yep, the UK in its entirety is smaller than the state of California. Consider that the farthest an EPL team has to travel is (I think) Newcastle to Bournemouth - that's the approximate distance from L.A. to San Fransisco. The cost for the clubs to travel is immense, and also for fans (as someone else said, that's why there's little traveling support in most US sports). It's also a reason why we need a lot more interest in the sport before we will be able to have multiple leagues with pro/rel, etc.

    Vancouver Whitecaps are playing somewhere up near Durness in the far north west of Scotland. I had a wee scout around where their stadium would be and.....here.

    The Seattle Sounders have a ready made bowl to put their stadium in here, near Clova, and even a small supporters lodge.

    Edit: Upon closer inspection I think the Seattle Sounders may actually be closer to the Glenshee area, which would put their stadium somewhere in this lovely flat valley, here.

    One of the things that European fans don't take into account when it comes to travel for MLS teams is not just the distances that some teams have to travel, but the fact that they have to travel across multiple time zones as well. So say for example that LAFC are playing NYCFC in New York City in a match that kicks off at 1 pm (not something you see often, but bear with me here). For the LAFC players, this would be like the match starting at 10 am in Los Angeles, which is a huge disadvantage, especially if they haven't gotten enough time to adjust to the time difference. Now let's flip it the other way around. If NYCFC travels to Los Angeles and the match kicks off at 8 pm, it would be similar to the match kicking off at 11 pm for the NYCFC players who are used to the time on the east coast. It's a really big disadvantage to the visiting squad and it's part of the reason why MLS (and every other professional league in the United States) operates on an unbalanced schedule.

    This is why one of the biggest changes MLS could make to improve player quality of life (so to speak) is unlimited charter flights. I think they currently can only charter two flights per year, so most often they choose when they have a bunch oftravel with 3 games in the week.

    The fun side of this is that if you are say, from Portland, and are flying out to say Atlanta for a match, you might catch a flight with the team! I haven't done that, but I'm sure it would be a bit of a fun experience for any fan that does.

    I think the reason that they don't allow unlimited charters is over fears of competitive advantage--a team with deep pockets like LA Galaxy or Atlanta would charter every flight, while a team with less financial freedom like RSL wouldn't. But hopefully that changes soon.

    Living in the Scottish central belt you can get to about 90% of the 42 league club’s stadiums within two hours drive. Most 7:45 midweek kick offs you’d be back before midnight. In the US you’d have to take about three days off work by the looks of it.

    There are things even worse about travelling in Brazil, when you consider the Estaduais. Four hours in a flight sounds awful, but Bahia is the size of France, and there are cities without regular flights, who has teams in the top flight. For Bahia to go to Jacobina play against the local team, for example, there are 6 hours in a bus, or rent an airplane for a game who won't give the revenue for it to be worth.

    And, about the teams there arent rich enough to afford to rent a plane, they have to go from their city to the other all the way in a bus, and get distances like 800km without leaving the state.

    Someone put the A League in there. Perth to Wellington is 5,255km, which is London to New Hampshire in the USA, or London to Afghanistan

    Inspired by If Russian Premier League clubs were based in Europe, this is where they would be, by /u/sned777.

    This was done with the aid of MAPfrappe and Paint.NET.

    There's no ulterior motive behind where each city was placed, except I tried to have them all be located at land and this is the best I could do.

    There are things even worse about travelling in Brazil, when you consider the Estaduais. Four hours in a flight sounds awful, but Bahia is the size of France, and there are cities without regular flights, who has teams in the top flight. For Bahia to go to Jacobina play against the local team, for example, there are 6 hours in a bus, or rent an airplane for a game who won't give the revenue for it to be worth.

    And, about the teams there arent rich enough to afford to rent a plane, they have to go from their city to the other all the way in a bus, and get distances like 800km without leaving the state.

    That's pretty wild. And your map at least keeps it in Europe but it'd be like Exeter flying to Algeria to play a league game

    Now imagine have to go in the same week to Argentina and Fortaleza. and you will still find people saying its a good idea to have Mexican clubs at the libertadores.

    very nice

    you can take an aerial pic of stamford bridge or white hart lane (pointed towards each other) and you'll get a photo with the two and the emirates in the same frame, they're practically in a straight line and very, very close together in comparison to op's pic. ofc goodison is a literal stone's throw from anfield!

    It could be even more discrepant, but Brazil lacks clubs in the North region.

    Even in the Northeast/Center-West there are only a few compared to dominant South/Southeast.

    This is why I find it funny when people tell Americans to "just support your local MLS team". Uhh, there's a good chance their "local" MLS team is a state or two over, entire EU country distances away.

    Clubs that are in libertadores also have to travel to other countries and many which have really different altitude, like 3000m above sea level altitude.

    Conspiracy theory: These map comparisons are astroturfing from the big clubs behind the controversial European Superleague plan.

    Change my mind.
