They are not omissions, they did not qualify.

Yeah. We attended the USA vs Panama qualifier here in Orlando.  How they couldn’t go down to Trinidad and get qualified is unbelievable to me.  

Crazy not to see the Netherlands and Italy in it.  Chile too.  They have a good team as well.  My son is telling me the US soccer federation is trying to put together a losers World Cup for the countries that didn’t make it...  Where there’s a buck to be made....

Yes - that's true, if not anal-retentively pedantic... :rolleyes:

Would one of your soccer guys tell me how the hell Leicester City, who were cruising along, get rolled by Chrystal Palace who are door mats?

:redcard: Spelling error. Crystal Palace

The answer to your question: CP attacked from the off, Leicester didn't. LC had a man sent off in the second half and didn't really have any chances at all. It is the way in Football. Very hard to predict scores on current form.I take it you lost money on a bet?

As for World Cup qualifying, I looked at the divisions and I do not see the USA or Netherlands.  Very strange.  First time I believe i have ever seen the Netherlands out?  So is this set in stone or is the qualifying still unfolding?  Next June is coming fast.  The exclusion of Russia from the Olympic games cannot add to a friendly atmosphere.  I do worry about these events going off without a hitch

PS, have a 3 teamer going. Arsenal is in the winners column already.  Need Leicester City plus 1.5 and Manchester United to wake up and win by `1.5.    I may hammer Manchester City over Chrystal Palace.  They might beat them by 5

I know. Very frustrating. I am watching at the moment. I think a lack of confidence in the team. A goal or two should settle the nerves?

Leicester City is better than advertised.  I will admit Manchester City is by far and away the best team right now.  But Leicester City are the second best.

Tick tock.  Still no goal from Manchester Divided.  I say Leicester City is the second best team in the Premier league.  Next to Manchester City

 

66 minute mark vs some hick team Derby and 0-0.  They suck my balls.  Have Everton plus a goal and they are tied at 1-1.  MU cannot score.  3 games without a goal

Incredible season for Man City.  Easily the best team right now. I was wrong on Leicester.  I thought their record was better than 500.  They Tied 0-0 today i a game they should have won.

Leicester City is totally outplaying Chester.  But still 0-0.  20 minutes left and Leicester gets a red card and down to 10 on a shit call. The guy never saw the defender.  Now Leicester who has the energy must hang on with 10

Bastard refs give Chelsea a free kick with one minute left in stoppage time.  No good.  Bitch's.  Come on and blow the whistle. Leicester deserved to win this but a tie is OK

OK>  I win this.  i need Everton and Tottenham over 2.5 goals.  I do not see another televised 0-0 affair.
