Maybe, with the January window looming, he was trying to ##### a few egos.

I can't figure out the ##### and it is bothering me.  'Bruise' is what Americans would say, but that wouldn't be filtered.  *itch doesn't make sense, *hit and *uck don't fit.  I'm at a loss.    

Thanks for the article quote.

I've been meaning to put this together for some time. For our newer US soccer fans, here is a little primer of things to know about the history of your team and some of the background of internationa

not a soccer fan here, how does this work?  Argentina gets ball for the first 45 minutes then the US gets it in the 2nd half?

I didn't get to see a lot of the match because I had a fussy infant and a toddler to get to bed.  I saw the last 30 minutes or so.  I guess that was a blessing.  Even in the last 30 minutes, I found m

I bet it is *hite, like our *hit.  Think 'poop'.

Alphonso Davies continues to get a ton of praise for his play at LB for Bayern from all levels (players and coaches alike).

I was chuckling to myself because there was a 50-50 chance he could have been American instead of Canadian.  His family moved as part of a refugee lottery.  The choices were either the US or Canada but when their name was pulled they were sent North.

Can you imagine Dest on the right and Davies on the left for the next 12 years?

This is a fun thread if you like voting on things.  One of the twitter guys has set up a 64 bracket poll for best US goal of the decade.  

It is going to be hard to top Donovan's in WC2010

https://twitter.com/usmnt_abroad/status/1204970522439757824?s=20

Donovan v Algeria takes out Germany Jones v Portugal for the title.

Didn't Bobby Woods meg someone then lash in a winner against Germany once upon a time?

Not a meg but it was a nice spin goal.  He was listed numerous times but not this goal.  Maybe they gave more weight to competitive game vs friendlies?

At this point, the lack of negative news is actually good news.  This would be a nice Christmas gift

========

A “long and frustrating process” may be coming to an end sooner rather than later for 20-year-old USMNT star Tyler Adams.

Adams has missed the entire club season to date with a nagging groin problem that was hard to pin down, but with critical USMNT component Tyler Adams having returned to training this past week, the light at the end of the tunnel is fast approaching.

RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann confirmed that Adams is eyeing a return to competitive action before the end of the month. The team has three games before concluding action for 2019 and transitioning to a three-week winter break.

“He may still possibly play this year,” Nagelsmann told the official club website during an update ahead of tomorrow’s Bundesliga match against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Nagelsmann did note that Adams’ body is not the only hurdle for the American, who also has to earn his way back onto the pitch among a crowded RB Leipzig midfield. Forward Hannes Wolf has also just returned from a long-term injury, making his debut off the bench last time out against Hoffenheim, while the likes of Christopher Nkunku and Konrad Laimer have played well in midfield during Adams’ time out. Adams’ versatility may help him find a way back into a crowded squad, with the ability to play full-back as well as midfield, although it has been clear in the past that RB Leipzig values his abilities in the center of the pitch.

It may be some time before Adams can start, needing to build up his fitness to full match performance, but a return to the field soon is a positive sign for the U.S. National Team who needs Adams on the field and in good form in the worst way.

*Weston was subbed out at the 13 minute mark with an injury.  Schalke's twitter said it is expected to be a shoulder dislocation.

*Konrad de la Fuente got his first ever start at Barca B today.  Lets hope this is a sign that he will remain at that level going forward.

Boo/yay.

But seems par for the coors. Now that Adams is inching towards health, we certainly wouldn't swag healthy too.

I don't know if you guys subscribe to The Athletic or not, but there is an awesome article about the USMNT photo shoot.

And by awesome, I mean hilariously awesome. :lol:

 

 

Quote

The shoot climaxed with the arrival of Pablo Mastroeni, who straddled a metal bench in linen pants and a midriff-baring shirt. Mastroeni did not respond to requests to be interviewed, but his 2002 teammates still have plenty to say.

“I’d love to just hear the direction on some of the photos,” Jones laughs. “I’d love to hear what he said to Pablo. ‘Arch your back more,’ probably.”

Dest scored in a Cup game for Ajax today

Twice!  Once seemingly at RB and once seemingly at LB (a sweet Coutinho special from the top of the box). 

Not to be outdone, Fonzie roasts the left side of Freiburg’s defense and plays a wicked low cross to Lewa for a pretty, pretty goal. Oh, Canada. 

Forgive the lack of links. On my phone.

He is having one hell of a season at a position he never played before

Highlights from Dest yesterday.  Take note that most of these are from the LB spot.  He looks really comfortable offensively on the left.  If he can be almost as good defensively over there, that could solve a lot of problems for the US.

Problems?

From an article about Liverpool's new signing from RB Salzburg...

"It's not hard to see why Salzburg is a favoured destination for players with real talent and hunger.

"From our experiences dealing with, and facing, Salzburg on and off the pitch in recent months, their reputation as a benchmark modern European club will only grow."

That's klopp being quoted. I know it's about the club in general, but nice reflection of Jesse too.

Great news that he's back on the field and starting and going big minutes. Figured they'd be easing him in situationally with sub roles...love that they think he's ready needed enough to start and go almost 90
