  1. Jason Foster‏ @JogaBonitoUSA Shaq Moore played a solid 90 minutes at RB in his 1st #LaLiga start, as #LevanteUD won 2-0 in #LasPalmasLevante. 53 touches, 22/31 passes, 1 key pass, 3 crosses, 1/2 dribbles, 9 recoveries, 4 clearances, 3 interceptions, 3/9 duels, 4 fouls. #USMNT
  2. Here is an every touch video for his 20 minute debut. He looks one of the biggest players on the field. Very solid debut, did not seem nervous at all. https://streamable.com/gi6p6
  3. I am trying to locate a highlight video but from all the reports I read, Monterray had a huge game against Tigres last night (first vs second) and Monterray won 2-0 and Gonzo was again a huge factor in the game winning balls like a mad man. =========== This is kind of surreal. At the exact same time of the nightmare of missing the WC we now have three teenagers (Pulisic, Swag and Gonzo) being incredibly important players on very very good teams. I love what Adams is doing as well but obviously that is at a lower level team/league than these three.
  4. Same reason they don't have a football team any more. St Louis was pretty much in pole position for one of the 2 MLS expansion slots that 12 cities were fighting for but their bid fell apart when they could not secure government money to help with the stadium. And good for them, too much public money continues to be thrown into these stadiums for owners who can afford to build their own. http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/map-how-the-mls-stadium-vote-failed/article_2dc4be87-9bfb-5d62-917e-037bcdeb5ce5.html
  5. Shaq Moore gets his first La Liga start today for Levante.
  6. Swag is just killing it. Started again today and went the full 90 as Schalke won 2-0 and moved into second place. Here is a comment on his game from the game report ====== Man of the match Full of confidence after scoring his first international goal on his USA debut in midweek, Weston McKennie ran the show for Schalke in midfield. The 19-year-old is growing in stature with every passing game and – as well as his customarily tenacious defensive work, McKennie displayed plenty of attacking nous, too, and was unlucky not to score his first Bundesliga goal.
  7. Damn it. The last couple of days had plenty of indications that US Soccer and NASL would settle out of court. The talks fell apart and they are back to the courts. http://www.frontrowsoccer.com/2017/11/18/no-settlement-nasl-ussf-agreement-unravels
  8. Antonee Robinson highlights (not an all touch video) https://streamable.com/cdhjc
  9. Here is an answer to a trivia question I don't think anyone could have answered. ================================ Question: When was the last time, prior to the Portugal match(McKinnie, Adams), that the US started two teenagers in the same game? Answer: 29 years ago in 1988, Tony Meola and Ted Gillen started against Ecuador. Interestingly, we could have easily seen the US start 4 teenagers against Portugal with Pulisic and Gonzo.
  10. And professional cherry is popped! He subbed in at the 71st minute mark.
  11. The notion is that he wanted some time off from coaching but who knows what really happened. There was a short lived rumor that he quit because he was going to take over at FC Cincy if/when they moved up to MLS but that was shot down pretty quickly.
  12. I run it 3 ways when I do it. Full SS, half SS, no SS. As a side note, I find the choice of PPI, CPI or flat inflation to have the biggest affect on the failure outcomes. Play with that variable if you are interested in seeing different results. The variable is under Spending Models tab. As an aside, when looking at expected expenses in retirement, don't forget to add in health care and a travel budget (if you require it for either).
  13. this is perfect by Yedlin against Man United. Picks up his head and makes the right decision before hitting it. https://imgtc.com/w/ZUSEV4O
  14. I might be crazy here but I think he is a legit top 10 player in the world right now.
  15. he was in LOTR. I don't know how much information there is on him in the appendices but he seems like he would be old enough in LOTR to be a character in this time frame between Hobbit and LOTR.
