  1. This is awesome. It played out almost exactly as his rant said it would https://twitter.com/WhitecapsFC/status/1451201611716431888?s=20
  2. https://twitter.com/USMNT/status/1451201610441396226?s=20 Very good as always. I would have liked to see a little more of the Panama game but since these are fluff, I realize they won't focus on the negative. The Columbus stadium looked sweet from these angles and views, inside and out.
  3. A new Behind the Crest drops today at 11am eastern
  4. [Jaime Ojeda] Another win for the New England Revolution this year in #MLS. The team reaches the figure of 69 points already. How wild. #NERevs have a winning rhythm that projects them to reach 75.7 points this year, breaking the LAFC record (72) achieved in 2019. 3 games to go.
  5. so as we stand today, our entire starting front line is hurt...
  6. Paul Carr @PaulCarr Today was the first time that five U.S. internationals started in UEFA Champions League on the same day. Brenden Aaronson, John Brooks, Sergiño Dest, Weston McKennie, Jordan Pefok
  7. Pepi listed as Out for tonight's game with a "foot injury"
  8. it gets more dumb by the minute. ============================== Rob Harris @RobHarris FIFA to explore proposal that teams can't play in consecutive World Cups if the event is held every 2 years
  9. I am not talking about locked in starter. I am talking about having a chance to be a sub and maybe get an occasional start. He can't get that at the uber clubs unless loaned but I think he could carve out a role like that on Ajax or Wolfsburg.
  10. Here is a more positive out look on Pepi. I don't agree myself. One of the reasons Davies popped is that he changed to a position of need, in almost any team, and knocked it out of the park with the move to LB. Pepi is not playing any where but striker and unlike LB, striker is a position that tends to have more depth at it for the big clubs. ========================== MLS Buzz @MLS_Buzz Ricardo Pepi is the best MLS product since Alphonso Davies. When Davies went to Bayern, people peppered the move with the same “he won’t ever play“ comments that are now surrounding Pepi. Davies did more than alright. Pepi will play wherever he goes, bank on that.
  11. I agree. Ajax would be perfect for him now. Play there and get time for the next 3 years and make the jump at 21-22 to a big team if the circumstances allow. He won't play at the uber clubs like Bayern/Liverpool. I don't know enough about Inter to know if he could be a sub there. Dzeko has to start slowing down sometime though. Dortmund is slightly more interesting because Haaland is only staying as long as it takes the Brinks truck to back into their parking lot so playing time might be available and Moukoko has not impressed enough that he is going to take the 9, at least just yet. I don't know much about Wolfsburg's needs but that is an interesting type of team since they are not a powerhouse but still hang around UCL levels in the league.
  12. ok here is a ton more info on Pulisic's injury (finally). This certainly sounds like he has tried to return multiple times but can't shake the pain yet ==================== https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FCEHrIXXMAQsdqW?format=png&name=900x900
  13. Roger Gonzalez @RGonzalezCBS The Ricardo Pepi pursuit is heating up even more. Sources tell me that both Liverpool and Inter Milan have entered the race to sign the young forward.
  14. This is so disappointing. He was suppose to be out like 10 days when they first evaluated the injury. He is going on 40 with no end in site ======== James Benge @jamesbenge Tuchel on Chelsea team news: Only Christian Pulisic is missing tomorrow
  15. From SBJ Sources: Euros heading to Fox Sports through 2028, EPL TV deal in play, MLS coming shortly after EPL is settled Fox Sports is close to taking the UEFA European Championship rights from ESPN, according to several sources. Nothing has been signed officially yet, but sources expect a deal for U.S. rights to be announced within the next two weeks. ESPN has held these rights since 2008 and has built up the Euros into a jewel event. Deal terms still are being negotiated, but sources say that Fox will have the rights through 2028, which would include Euro 2024 and Euro 2028, in addition to the UEFA Nations League and European qualifiers. The price Fox is paying for the package is not known. ESPN paid around $115 million for the package that included just Euro 2020. UEFA was believed to be looking for around $300 million to cover the next two iterations of the event. The deal marks a big win for Fox, as the Euros fit the media company’s soccer strategy, which is more focused on big events with national teams rather than individual clubs. Fox boasts an enviable schedule over the next four years, which includes the FIFA World Cup next year, the Women’s World Cup in 2023, the Euro 2024 and the Concacaf Gold Cup in 2025. It also holds the rights to the South America's Copa America. CBS, ESPN and NBC were involved in the negotiations at one point or another. These media companies have been active in picking up soccer rights, part of a strategy by each to bolster the direct-to-consumer component for their respective streaming services: Paramount+, ESPN+ and Peacock. CBS, ESPN and Fox are expected to join NBC in submitting formal bids for the Premier League’s U.S. media rights next month, according to several sources. NBC’s current deal ends in May. The league has told interested companies to submit bids by Nov. 8. The Premier League has said that it will consider bids that split the rights between two media companies, a big change from how it has previously marketed its U.S. rights, which to date has only been held by one network. Opportunities still exist for one company to pick up the rights. But other properties, like the NHL recently, have opted to split packages among two or more networks to take advantage of having big media companies help promote their sport. Given the posturing among all the networks, it’s impossible to accurately predict how much the league stands to make from a new deal. NBC currently pays more than $150 million per season as part of a six-year deal signed in 2015. Considering the amount of interest, that fee is likely to double -- and possibly go higher. NBC Sports wants to remain the sole U.S. rights holder for Premier League, which has been a big driver of its Peacock streaming service. When asked about the Premier League at last week’s CAA World Congress of Sports, ESPN’s Jimmy Pitaro said, “We love the game of soccer. We love it on linear, but probably love it even more for direct-to-consumer. Absolutely we are interested in more soccer content and we are looking at it right now.” The frenzy around the Premier League has affected MLS, which also is in the market looking for new media deals. Sources said that media companies told MLS execs that they wanted to wait until after the Premier League’s bidding process ended before getting serious with negotiations around the domestic league’s rights.
