Other than him the Armenians definitely are nobodies. Any legit fan would know about Özbiliz? Özbiliz is an Ajax winger reject who belongs in the same category as Lukoki, Ebecilio, Josefzoon, Zeegelaar, Martina.... Who? Exactly. If you don't know about them you shouldn't know about Aras either. Though he has seemingly found his stride in the Russian league this season, it's not like he is some kind of well known guy in the Netherlands because he played for Ajax' reserve team.

Erm, which is why I said known in certain communities, not by legit fans.

Yura Mov is definitely a fine striker

BTW, Armenia will play Albania on August 13. Two of the better up and coming teams in Europe/

He is talking about the 2011 Gold cup Final moron.




You're thinking of the 09 final. And it was a shitty day for Howard and the defense that day.

All I see is that 0 in the loss column. Mexico's defense has been very good. Once the Offense starts clicking they will be in very good shape for the WC. No way they finish lower than 3rd place. Even if they finished 4th, i'm sure they would beat New Zealand.

Not sure if serious or just trolling. Every Mexican fan knows that the only reason Chicharito plays is because of politics since he is one of the biggest celebrities in Mexico. For every goal he scores he misses about 3 or 4 clear shots. Plus, give him the ball outside the box and he doesn't know what to do with it because he lacks the technical abilities that any player at his level should have.

All I see is 8 points with a game in hand on every team outside of the cellar dwellers. Take away a bad offsides call vs Jamaica and they are at 6 points with the Reggae Boys being 3 points back.

Oh I see that too, and it's fu*king awesome. Nothing like having 2 teams to genuinely root for in the WC

I was telling my armenian buddy that Armenia should join the Caribbean Football Union to have a level playing field...I mean, if the Guyanas and Suriname can join the North American Confederation why can't Armenia

Yup, is fully genuine, and it is pretty cool having that opportunity.

And Armenia would shit on the Caribbean and finish top 4 every cycle for the Cup in the CONCACAF, with ease. They wouldn't draw Honduras 2-2 at home, nor sneak away with a one goal win, due to a bad offside call, against the Reggae Boys.

But hey, hope Honduras doesn't upset the US and Panama defeat Costa Rica on the next match day, else you guys will be only ahead of the Reggae Boys.
