New York Cosmos Aim for the Stars

New York Cosmos Aim for the Stars

I remember watching the New York Cosmos way back in the day when I was just a pre-teen. The team was loaded and won regularly in the NASL. It had stars like Pele, Beckenbaur, Messing, Jeff Durgan, Ricky Davis, Carlos Alberto…and of course Chignalia just to name a few. 

The club has had more stars play for it than any other professional club ever in the United States. That fact is undeniable. But…

He recovered from his dreadful first touch and got to the ball before I did, which was his first mistake. Then he tried to cheekily flick the ball up and over my incoming tackle, which…

Sorry to all the girls I grew up playing soccer with back in the 80s and 90s…but there didn’t seem to be many like Sydney Leroux back then. On the field or off. Again, my apologies, because I certainly was the soccer-playing Brad Pitt back in the day either. 

Check out this link from Top Drawer soccer of Sydney before a Seattle Reign game.

Guess what “supposed” world class athlete said this in an ESPN article by Jeff Carlisle. 

“I think Jurgen’s motto — and I think to his credit it has worked and been good — is that you have to be good all the time, and you have to prove it every day. That’s hard for older players.”

Soccer Stars - they rule, I suck

Soccer Stars – they rule, I suck

Soccer Stars – they rule, I suck

I used to think I had some pretty good skills…at age 16 I could juggle 1027 times! But after watching these modern skills savants, I have come to realize that I was never really any good at all. Maybe on 50/50 challenges you might still want to watch your step around me, but as far as street skills…I am still a newbie compared to these guys! Enjoy
