  1. QB - Drew Brees - NO - $38 QB - Patrick Mahomes - KC - $36 QB - Russell Wilson - SEA - $26 RB - Alvin Kamara - NO - $29 RB - Sony Michel - NE - $12 RB - Travis Homer - SEA - $9 WR - Michael Thomas - NO - $34 WR - Kenny Stills - HOU - $10 WR - TreQuan Smith - NO - $9 WR - Mecole Hardman - KC - $8 WR - Demarcus Robinson - KC - $4 WR - Marquez Valdes-Scantling - GB - $2 TE - Travis Kelce - KC - $22 TE - Jordan Akins - HOU - $5 TE - Matt LaCosse - NE - $4 TE - Tyler Conklin - MIN - $2 Other tough part is picking the right teams that advance, but the wrong players (Allen/Singelary/Hausuka) having good games.
  2. This always surprises me as the mix of entrants should be inteligent FF players given they paid for a subscription service. Can't wait to see the rosters in here once the competition closes. Good luck everyone!
  3. Only slightly biased here, but what a switch ball on the second goal from Carleton. Wow.
  4. 2 could be improved it you eliminate the penalty taker from touching the ball first off a save/post. I think it's brutal when a keeper makes the save only for the taker to nudge the ball home. That seems like such a penalty for making a great save. Important to note my son is a keeper, so I'm slightly biased. Otherwise, I agree with @El Floppo
  5. Team wasn't strong last night. Brek and Barco had rough nights until Pity and Gressel entered. Josef was frustrated a lot of the night by DC pressing everything played to him for hold up. Guzan gave up a howler, and I think it's fair to say the wet weather contributed to it. howler It was a different game when PIty and Gressel came on, quite a few chances created, but it's also fair to say that up 2 goals, DC sat back more to protect the lead. I'm not worried much beyond the slow start issues we seem to have. If we can get an away goal in the CCL this week, we've played the cards right. If not..... DE BOER OUT!
  6. Expecting lineup changes for ATLUTD tonight as we "focus on the CCL" early in the season. We should see Tito (likely Pity) and Larry (Remedi or Nagbe) starting for sure. I expect Bello/Abrose at LB for Shea and Escobar for Parkhurst if healthy. There's a thought Kann may start in pace of Guzan as well. Lastly, I'd love to see Carleton start for Barco as well. I'm not holding my breath, but he did make the 18 vs. Herediano.
  7. Any thoughts on the first one being an own goal? I'm glad it wasn't, and it may be a harsh, but I'm not sure the original shot gets around he keeper to the corner. I'll take my karma hit and will hang up and listen.
  8. Same here. We only got the ball a few inches off the ground. That goal was fun to watch.
  9. Miggy getting into the thick of things in his home Newcastle debut. Missed a chip by a fraction after running onto a through ball from midfield. He just drew red taking a studs up tackle. The fans really seem energized by his presence.
  10. Yes? Tata's M.O. would have been sub then start for a player coming off injury/rest. I'm not sure what FDB does here. I don't think we take Remedi off, so it seems to be Barco or Nagbe.
  11. Barco had some flashes on Thursday showing some quickness and ability to draw fouls while on the ball. That desire to draw fouls results in him holding the ball too long. He also missed some opportunities to rip a shot in favor of holding the dribble. I'm more optimistic than I was last year on him. I agree on Tito. They have to get him on the filed more. I expect a more attacking lineup in the return leg. I'd like to see FDB drop Barco into the middle of the 4, move Larentowicz to the bench and start Tito along with Pity/Josef up top.
  12. Definitely a rough game. @AAABatteries summarized well throughout. The back line was a total mess, and it didn't help that Guzan was all over the place like a U10 keeper. There were massive gaps on the wings on their counter attacks. The through balls were played at the defenders and not through the gaps. Pity/Barco aren't on the same page with Josef. I could go on. At least when we got creamed by Houston to start last year it was 1 of 34 matches. This is 1 of what may only be 2 matches. A silver lining is Herediano did this to Club America in this tournament before (won 3-0 at home) and proceeded to lost 6-0 away in the second leg. Fingers crossed....
  13. I thought he looked good. Team wasn't sure how to use his speed yet. He could have had an assist (Josef would have finished it 😉) before the equalizer was given up. He'll have to better gauge his flopping for fouls. Ref gave him 1 and not the other 2, 1 of which was in his defensive half. Short story is he belongs in a match vs a mid-table team. They have Huddersfield next. Hoping for a start and domination!
  14. Some ATLUTD & Future USMNT pron.... Carleton @AAABatteries
  15. Big day for ATLUTD today. Unofficial new kit release too https://www.reddit.com/r/AtlantaUnited/comments/al5cbl/new_kit_prerelease_lol/?ref=readnext I feel for the kid, He's apparently all over the web trying to get people to take it down. As for the kit, I'm pretty meh about it.
  16. No Carleton or Gosslin. Wonder if they were held back due the CCL starting in mid-Feb or not invited?
  17. How does a ManU fan handle the best American player playing at Chelsea? It was always safe to root for the Americans in the EPL, not so much any more.
  18. Tony Annan has the most to gain outside of the first team with this hire. He ran a successful local, youth club before being hired in at Atlanta United. He replaced Richard Money shortly into his stint leading the academy, and was thrown in as Academy Director. While the academy has had success, Annan's only experience graduating players to the top team are mostly inherited players. Carleton was developed outside of the ATLUTD walls before signing as a homegrown. They get some credit for Bello, but it's taking in players in the U12-U14 levels and developing them for sale/first team minutes where an academy proves itself. FDB has seen that from the best both as a player and as a manager. I'm very excited about his opportunity to influence there, both as a team fan and personally as my kids have friends who have been brought into their academy. Good article here on Annan
  19. Eales is the loss I fear the most as an ATLUTD fan. If he proves his chops as a negotiator on both the buying and selling ends of player negotiations, he has a future in the same role at a top flight team in Europe. One must think, if Spurs could come calling down the road, how hard it would be for him to say no. Thus far, he's nailed everything else, including a high profile coach-swap, in his five years on the job. While he's not American, I also wonder if he wouldn't be a considered as a candidate to succeed Garber at some point. He does have young children, so remaining in America may be a priority, and there is no bigger soccer club to leave for here in the US.
  20. The rehabilitation of Andrew Carelton is beginning with a local winter youth camp. It was eye-opening to hear Eales discuss Bello as the youth FDB will influence without mentioning Andrew. https://twitter.com/seleriee/status/1076539268271665152 Here's hoping he can refocus in the off-season. He's a good kid with a good foundation that hopefully will find his way without anymore youthful mistakes.
