This is getting to two pages. I watched Australia play Brazil the other night, I was hoping the Aussies would win, was sad they didn't.

Can someone explain to me why grammar is different in soccer?

"USA are in full command" instead of "USA is in full command.

In soccer they use team names like mascot names. For example in NBA you would say

"The Lakers are in full command" but you would never say "Los Angeles are in full command"

I know some British people and they don't seem to use this often so it doesn't seem like a language barrier. However, I don't talk sports with my Brit friends.

^^^Nobody knows? They are still saying "sweden ARE up 2-0" I don't hear this type of speak in mls or college soccer so it must be a british thing but why do people on this forum use it?


Also why is rachael buhler on the team? She is awful.

I don't think it has anything to do with soccer, rather the announcer. You probably just hear British announcers whenever you watch soccer and equate the two.

British English tends to always use plural verbs with teams. ie "Los Angeles are in full command" like you listed earlier.

O'Hara had no touch and kept surrendering possession of the ball after she went in. Is she that bad or is it the World Cup jitters? O'Reilly was really missed on that side, but don't we have still have better options (maybe Heath)?

this is actually an entertaining game

what i like about it is that it seems like women flop and act like babies way less than men. when they get knocked down they get right back up unless they are actually hurt. i can respect that.

I wish it was a suspend-able offense to drop in and troll a thread with one post and then leave. Whether it be women's soccer, baseball, football or NASCAR (and I hate NASCAR).

Anyway here's Alex Morgan, who I have a huge crush on right now, apparently dressed as a Fanta girl.



Also, I actually am really interested in the game today v. Brazil but I already made plans to go to the pool around noon...

It's not a dumb rule but Solo obviously didn't break it.

Wahl is saying the retake was because other US players had entered the box before the kick was taken, which is also not allowed. I didn't look for that on the replay so I don't know. It makes sense though because I didn't see the linesman flag for Solo coming off her line and that's 100% her call. The center is the one watching everybody else.
