    You didn't understand. The stadium in Las Vegas isn't ready yet. They need a place to play next season.

    Match Threads Spurs v Chelsea Match Thread - Carabao Cup - 1st Leg

    They literally may not have a stadium to play in next year and they're about to move to Las Vegas. London is actually a pretty decent option for them.

    I like how the ref outran the Liverpool midfielders on that counter.

    The NFL Thread

    Is it really that great? It's like the Americans who say soccer would be better with bigger goals so every game ends 8-7.

    PL ref Bobby Madley quits...........

    Refs are held to a higher standard. I'm a grass roots ref and I got a notice for criticizing the US federation for missing the World Cup on social media. When you're a professional ref, almost anything will be used against you by fans. Even if it's not true. See the six pages of this thread...
