Everyone talking about Fulham
« on: November 25, 2022, 09:12:32 PM »
How nice to hear so many positive comments about Fulham from US commentators. Let’s hope all the positives encourage those extra signings we need.

Nice job TK for getting us to where we are.

I liked the bit (here on Italian tv) where they mentioned that Pulisic is the 3rd highest scorer for the US national team.....behind Dempsey and McBride....

The opposite from ITV. Over two matches i only heard them mention our name once. Right at the end of the England game and only when Ream had kept Kane in his pocket all game. Leeds mentioned plenty of times by comparison.

Quote ITV commentator ‘ You have got to remember that the USA team have plenty if experience on the English league with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Leeds’.
As mentioned elsewhere this just about sums up their commentary.

Chelsea and Leeds I can understand, but how is backup keeper at Arsenal more significant than Robinson and Ream?

Nah, they got that one very wrong.  Dempsey is tied with Landon Donovan for most USA senior goals.

I thought I heard us mentioned quite a few times before and during, as the club of Ream and Robinson.

At one point they were talking of some good defending by Ream, of which there was a lot - the England attack hardly managed a shot on target, the co- commentator said he'd seen Ream v Man U, and he played really well.

But maybe other English clubs were mentioned more.

Makes you think, if that American team last night had included a rejuvinated Dempsey and McBride in their line up England would have taken one hell of a thrashing.

as a US fan, I would kill to have either one on the squad in Qatar.  Is the missing piece from an otherwise young, promising but disappointing team.

In four years time and a partizan crowd behind them, that US side is going to contend. No question there.

oh so true it’s taken a longer than I expected time for the Americans to get to this point but they are firmly on track now . At my age I won’t be here to see it but I’m sure in 10 years time they’ll be at the forefront of world football.

I think a few of these “underdog” teams are not so underdogs anymore.

I watched most of this game on Sky TV here in NZ.  I heard the commentators talking about hoe Ream and Robinson worked well together, as they do for their club Fulham.  Also heard the comment about Ream describing him as "Mr. Steady Eddie" of the defence.  High praise for the old man of the team, who was apparently only there because of injuries to others.
Also noticed that most of the movements from defence to attack stated with Tim, as they seem to with Fulham.  He is definitely showing that age is just a number and is one of the most consistent defenders at the WC.

It does surprise me that given our US connections that we have barely set foot over there.
