Monday “Meh” list: quick recap of the slightly overrated


Quick-hit list of people, places and things we noticed over the weekend that land on the over-done or overly praised side. Not necessarily awful but, you know, just “meh.”

  • Timmy Chandler
  • Any venue selected for a U.S. match that’s not 74 yards wide, at least
  • Dismissing Scotland (Sniff, sniff. Is that sour grapes we smell?)
  • USMNT formation fixation
  • Chicago Fire
  • Umlauts
  • MLS day games in Texas
  • Weekends of insufficient soccer on TV (pictured)
  • Overreaction to lesser losing streaks in league play (it’s a long season; the dips are out there for everyone)
  • Asserting the difficulty of MLS scheduling
  • Team complaints about MLS scheduling
  • Complaints over Seattle goalkeeper Bryan Meredith
  • New U.S. Open Cup format rules (that don’t really fix the problem)
