  1. I just think it's kind of weird to close a discussion of some poor couple getting murdered by pulling some Philly cheesesteak cred.
  2. I watched most of the first half of this game, and hoo boy are Paraguay bad.
  3. The answer is apparently riding the bench for FC Volendam’s ( Dutch 2nd Division) U21 team. Another Kleiban success story!
  4. The signing of a promising young left back always prompts me to ask what happened to XuXuh Hilton.
  5. I literally don't know what "upside" Horvath has. He's not that young anymore (26). He never set the world on fire when he was starting for Brugge (he had a few good games in big spots, like some Champions League group games, but he wasn't consistent). Brugge went out of their way to sign Mignolet, who most thought was over the hill (and never even an average PL goalkeeper in his prime). And Horvath never provided any inkling of competition for Mignolet. And now he's had two chances to make Forest drop the incomparable Brice Samba and has been unconvincing in both. If we ignore mistakes and just went by upside, we'd still be calling in Bill Hamid, even if he's proven error and injury-prone for the Nats. At least he's had seasons of data where he was close to the shot stopping force Turner is now.
  6. Well, we have a number of goalkeepers who have gotten plenty of game time. Guys who have been in the program like Johsnon and Guzan. And guys like Melia who have inexplicably never been in the program (if this were pre-tournament instead of qualifying, I'd call in Melia because he's a PK god).
  7. I think Horvath is an interesting case study. Because really the only argument I can make that he should even be the third GK is that relief stint against Mexico (I guess he was fine in the subsequent Costa Rica friendly too, but they were so checked out it hardly merits consideration). Otherwise, he's played extremely sparingly for his club teams for 2 plus years and has still managed to somehow amass a collection of howlers in the few minutes he's gotten.
  8. it also struggles by trying to slavishly out each guy into a slot. And I get that’s Gregg’s normal formation, but you end up with Acosta as an 8 when we know he’s the prime back-up at the 6. Or Ferreira as a right wing, when if he gets the call-up, he’d almost certainly play off Pepi which he’s done so well for Dallas
  9. Shame I can’t find his Loy Gehrig sketch on YouTube. RIP.
  10. The human embodiment of the phrase “even a blind squirrel finds a nut some days.” See also, Seb Larsen and free kicks.
  11. I don’t know if he’s moved away from it, but Almeyda is pretty famous for running a man marking system both before and during his time with the Quakes.
  12. El Tren is definitely the coolest USMNT nickname as well.
  13. Apparently arrived back with a hammy issue according to Farke.
  14. How is Sargent a GGG darling? GGG was crucified for picking Gyasi ahead of Sargent early in his national team run.
  15. Just going to add that if US Soccer doesn’t give Pepi a US crest version of his FC Dallas hat, I riot.
  16. I read multiple reporters describe him getting a touch on the first goal. So I imagine it’s that. But I loved the short wind-up on the Lletget goal. Even though the keeper did well to get down to it, he opened and struck very quickly. It is my biggest soccer hot take. Give me a striker with a quick draw trigger like the tie-poke God, Romario.
