NFT: Eric Lichaj Bossing FA Cup Game

FatMan in Charlotte : 1/7/2018 11:49 am
American Eric Lichaj, a defender, has two goals in a FA match between Nottingham Forest and Arsenal.

2-1 Forest, but it is still in the first half.

Good to see an American making an impact!
I'm DVRing the game dammit.

always good to see an american doing well. wasn't expecting that to be the story line of this match.
Arsenal is playing their C team

In a game they probably arenít taking seriously. If we want to be a serious football nation, we need to stop celebrating minor things like this. Good for Lichaj, but Iím not impressed.
I severely doubt..

that pointing out Lichaj is having a great game is going to hold back US soccer.

As a fan, it is cool to see any defender get 2 goals in a game and the stadium chanting "USA, USA" is pretty cool.

But hey, maybe we should turn the TV off in anger....
Also..

Arsenal has won the Cup 3 out of the past 4 seasons. I'm pretty sure they take it seriously.

3-1 Forest now. Lichaj didn't get the hat trick, so we should probably just moan about the state of US soccer now.....
Forest..

won 4-2
Arsenal made 9 changes to their line-up this match  
PatersonPlank : 1/7/2018 2:40 pm : link
thats 9 out of 11 possible. I don't think they are all that concerned.
Expectations

got caught up in the Barca/Levante match.

I wasn't even..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 1/7/2018 3:08 pm : link
celebrating. I noted that Lichaj, an American defender, scored two goals in the game I was watching.

You'd think that might be one topic that wouldn't draw stupidity from the board, but alas, I was wrong.

Painfully, fucking wrong.
that loooping mini punt
