    Potm vela? Surely it should have been ibra with a rb vela right?

    i'm confused if they are confused or if they just didn't look at Septebmers stats lol

    Except that he broke the record in October lol

    I'll take it, in any case. Would be awesome if we got that EoaE Schweinsteiger too now (and a scream Ibra??)

    A little strange that it's Vela and not Ibra, but I'll take it. He's going to tear people up with that left footed finesse shot from the CAM position.

    Well guys, if any of you stocked up on high rated MLS cards for any of our potential SBCs, now may be the time to offload em.

    Also, join our bracket challenge! I only see one other entrant!!! ^

    If you had asked me before, I'd say NYCFC aren't the favorites to win, but here I am picking them to win the whole thing

    Also, 250k for Schwieni is a little steep...

    Coin wise I know I shouldnt but will be doing Bastion as soon as I get home. Think this is what I will end up with for the time being in a 4231.

    I picked them too, they dont look unreal on paper but think they have the team to do it. LAFC just dont look like a team to win in the playoffs without a midfield or defense.

    I dont want to have to sell Lampard because he has been great but with Basti now I dont have a place for him. Might get me a tasty Nesta or ICON CB to use instead of Boateng.

    only negative now is if McKennie gets an IF... i don't htink i can work POTM, Josef, POTM Vela, EoaE Schweiny, and McKennie all in one team on full chem even with Mid Nakata!

    And if they face the Galaxy they definitely will lose, but if the Galaxy lose their opening game, I think LAFC will take it. Galaxy have LAFC in their back pocket, but not everyone else

    Will probably just plug Schweiny in for Chara straight here

    I have 4,000 coins after doing POTM Martinez and Vela back to back. Basti costs 250K and expires in a week. Somehow I'm going to find a way to complete him, even if I must sell my entire club.

    Yeah the one gripe I have about the SBC is the expiration. Should be at least two weeks if not a month. No way a casual player can just magically cough up 250k from scratch

    You could get closes to it from a week of SB, Rivals, and Champs. I know a "casual" wouldnt play all of that each week but could grind for one week and get close to it.

    I wouldn't consider myself a casual, and that's just impossible to do when working a 9-5, without essentially giving all your free time to the game. So I guess what you say is still technically true

    Assuming one is close to the 2000 WL points it would be about 3-4 hours of Squad Battles and 6-8 of Weekend League (depending on skill level could be way shorter) and maybe 2-3 hour of Rivals to get an easy 150k plus some packs. That would also take into account that the average person could get 13-115 wins in WL. I would think a solid 10-11 hours during the week would be all it takes which isnt too much to ask for a solid reward with no money spent.

    Saw this earlier, insanely funny. Is there any Orlando fans in this lounge I can make fun of for being a fan of such a terrible club? Lol

    Really kind of wish they would turn it around though. They have too good an atmosphere and supporters for the product on the field. Would make for some fun rivalries. That being said maybe Nashville can provide the same thing. Ahsout the same distance but a way better city for an away day.

    Didn't think it could get worse. It indeed, does, keep getting worse.

    You know what the difference between Alphonso Davies and Christian Pulisic is?

    One isn't treated as the next coming of Christ and is given the weight of a whole nation on his shoulders. Feel bad for Pulisic, but can't help but be impressed by Davies.

    Thats not even mentioning how trash this USMNT looks anyway

    Why do we always wait until it's way too late to realize we aren't where we should be? This country's national soccer landscape needs to get its **** in gear

    That IF McKennie looks beastly. A little bittersweet coming off our wretched real life performance last night
