    It's got to be a pretty bitter pill for Abromavitch to spend that much money to get worse.

    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    If enough of these guys come good enough, I'd take "deep pool of C+/B- guys, pick the two in the best form" over "Jozy and then scramble when Jozy gets hurt" for damn sure. Would love some of them to stake stronger claims than that though. I'm intrigued to see Sargent back in a US camp, which...

    Lamela would not have been my first choice off of this bench

    Tuned into the wrong dispiriting relegation candidates to watch a US striker I suppose

    Watching Phil Neville do a faceplant as an MLS manager would be extremely funny

    Boxing Day and Beyond

    Either Silva or Neto (I forget which) had one about as bad at the other end. You really don’t see the simulation card too much.

    Boxing Day and Beyond

    Bergwjin excepted, those were negative substitutions to the point of insanity. Take off the one player launching counter-attacks for one who can’t pass, then follow it up taking off the player who finishes most counter-attacks to bring on the one who overdribbles and kills counter-attacks. No...

    Chelsea found a copy of Arsenal’s recent “just try a bunch of bad crosses” plan and decided to give it a throw.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm: US Youth National Teams, Prospect Hype, and Youth Development Thread [The DA is DEAD updates]

    There's not much money in them so it makes sense, but I am still shocked that any soccer governing body actually looked at the obvious problem of way too much soccer crammed into the catch-up calendar and decided to cancel some of their soccer.

    Week 14 - Capital Kick-Off

    I was young and confused and had only just started watching club soccer in earnest after the 2014 World Cup. He scored in the season opener against Arsenal. It was a nice header and he was very tall.

    Week 14 - Capital Kick-Off

    As someone who wound up following Spurs after his brief, Brede Hangelund induced Crystal Palace-curious phase, this felt like watching a Poch Spurs team having a terrible day against a Mourinho Spurs team playing perfectly. The defensive commitment was really something to see.

    Dortmund look sleepy and there for the taking, but the quality is obvious if they do turn it on.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: WE SIGNED A STRIKER! (I mean, besides Alex Morgan)

    The Liverpool match did expose how the counterattack is one piece away from where it needs to be. Could be Bergwijn actually hitting form, could be Bale finding some sort of form and fitness, could be Lucas going on one of his hot streaks. I listed those in about the order I think they're...

    Otasowie on for a big half against Chelsea, holding his own. All halves are big when Otasowie is involved.
