As much as I detest Qatar hosting the WC I can't help but be impressed as to how the Qatari team is preparing for it.

They are now in Group A (Portugal's group) for WCQing (the Qatar results don't factor into the standings)

They are playing in Copa America next summer

They are playing in the Gold Cup next summer.

That is a fantastically diverse group of competitive games.

I can only hope the US does something similar for the run up to 2026.

I hope that Qataris get crushed 10-0 in all matches up to and including the World Cup.

Is is better to roster players like Morris/Mueller who are performing at a high level in a smaller league or is it better to roster players like Weah/Uly who are not playing much at all in better leagues.......?

I only got one name for ya: Wondo.

Don't want any Wondos.

Probably discussed, but maybe overlooked with the US game last night...Steffen with a clean sheet in CL yesterday.

there was almost no discussion of the game online from what I could tell so I assumed it was a clean sheet similar to Hamid's clean sheet last night where he did almost nothing (I don't know this for sure, just assuming).

I need education.  This was posted on twitter as part of the racism issue last night.  Can some one tell me what I am looking at here?

It was originally a thin blue line police support flag, but co-opted by white nationalists recently.

Weah is starting at left half in a 4-4-2 formation today

The good news (admittedly I am no expert) but this looks like almost a normal A squad lineup for Lille.

also saw that Cameron Harper is on the bench for Celtic today against Lille. If Harper subs in, it will be his professional debut.

I watched about 30 minutes of the Lille first half.  Weah looked ok.  he did not look out of place at all with his touch or passing but did not to stand out either.  He did not attempt even a single dribble while I watched.  Just accepted and passed on.

Weah scored to tie things up! Got subbed out not long after.

Oh...right. the upside down reality where we're all against the kid and don't think Weah rates. With this goal- you've really shown us we're all wrong. 

I for one, hope that Weah becomes the next Henry, Zlatan, and fat Ronaldo all rolled into one.  Something about not believing he's there yet seems to throw certain folks into a lather.  LOL.

put him on ignore, he clearly has no interest in this thread and just focuses on one tiny agenda.

excellent finish.  He had no prep time and just had to hit it quickly

Nice. Was hoping it was from the run of play so we could see him in action...but regardless, really nicely taken.

Didn't forget, but his apologetic hands in the air celebration reminded me that he had a loan spell at Celtic.

PSV manager Roger Schmidt gives a somber outlook on the injury to #USMNT midfielder Richie Ledezma ahead of medical tests coming tonight or tomorrow: "It doesn't look good."

Quote

 

PSV confirms the worst scenario for Richard Ledezma. Cruciate ligament ruptured. He is out for 6 to 9 months. Incredibly sour for him, he would definitely join the A-selection after the winter.

Thanks for the update.

####### sucks. Thats a kid with a ton of creative talent- I was really looking forward to seeing his groeth. regular pt with the first team was going to help push that ability and test how far he can go in the pro game, and for the Nats.

Speedy recovery, richie.

This guy plays pretty much the same position/style as Aaronson so this could be good timing for all involved

===============================

Red Bull Salzburg forward/AM Dominik Szoboszlai is close to joining RB Leipzig in January. The German club want to pay €25m release clause before Christmas and expect to beat AC Milan and Arsenal in the race to sign the midfielder.

What a huge performance from Matt Miazga today who helps Anderlecht to a clean sheet, 1-0 win over league-leading Genk - which had won 7 in a row and had scored 19 goals in its last 5 games. No doubt, Anderlecht are very happy with the #USMNT defender today

God I wish Chelsea would sell him.  I think if he could settle at a club permanently, instead of loaning to a different club each year, that we'd see him develop even more.

Matt Miazga (25) put up a big MOTM performance for Anderlecht vs. Genk today. Clean sheet for the team and Miazga led in: aerials won (8x), clearances and blocked shots, while completing 85% of his passes. He also had a clearance off the line to secure his side the win

here is another angle....jesus that was classy (and if I might say, he made it look Zidane-like easy)

https://twitter.com/USMNT/status/1337782540405518338?s=20

That was my first impression too - he made it look so simple.  What a first touch and then such a sublime finish.
