    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    Josh Sargent scored a very, very sorely needed goal for Werder today, and also had a nice assist (correctly) called back for offside.

    2021-22 scheduling update. Reports are that the USSF is close to finalizing a friendly on 3/25. They also want to play friendlies before and after Nations League.

    MLS Offseason 2020-21: TAM, GAM, Thank You Ma'am.

    Steve Cherundolo has been trying to get into the managerial game for a while and has held many youth, reserve, and assistant positions in Germany. It feels like his momentum stalled out when he jumped from Hannover to Stuttgart to be Tayfun Korkut's assistant. Korkut got fired within months...

    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    If Wikipedia can be believed, it was all totally random — no seeding, and no restrictions by country.

    Flamengo bottled it by losing to São Paulo, so Internacional needed to beat Corinthians at home to win the title. This happened: View: https://twitter.com/MattDoyle76/status/1365130284606382080

    Oops! I guess I'll have to desperately hold onto this, then: View: https://twitter.com/cboehm/status/1364971634155810821 Whatever the case, someone in Europe will hire Henry sooner or later.

    View: https://twitter.com/clubdefootmtl/status/1364965189368631296 "Family reasons" are legitimate given what Canadian MLS teams have gone through in the pandemic and what their schedule will be like for a big chunk of 2021. Henry's eyes are probably on the exits anyway, as I'd imagine...

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

    A giant 48-man Olympic qualifying preliminary roster was submitted to CONCACAF. It's totally nonbinding, but there aren't many reasons to expect that Kreis and the USSF will engage in any funny business or subterfuge. There aren't that many big storylines that can come out of such an inclusive...

    Dike comes off the bench for 30 minutes and scores. When I started this highlight I assumed it was going to be a thumping header off a corner, or perhaps a chaotic tap-in, but I was wrong! View: https://twitter.com/mtbh12/status/1364680168443424777

    While there’s a real pipeline to RBL, a lot of Salzburg players go elsewhere. A couple years ago, they had sales to Dortmund, Sevilla, Gladbach, Liverpool, Hoffenheim, and Wolfsburg (x2). It’s just ridiculous...

    Lots of teams have to learn lessons the hard way, it seems. I call it the McKennie Moment. It’s funny, I also recall widespread consternation about Busio’s playing time at the beginning of last year but looking at his stats in retrospect he ended up starting the large majority of games and had...

    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    Orange County SC is an unusual independent USL club in that it regular signs domestic teenagers. They've formed a partnership with Rangers and have now sent their second player there. The first was goalkeeper Aaron Cervantes '02, now Francis Jacobs '05 makes the move. Jacobs has a UK...

    Daryl Dike compilation from this weekend. Two minutes and twenty seconds of proof that Dike was born to thrive in the Championship, if nothing else. View: https://twitter.com/goal_verse/status/1363186646284267520 Aaronson got great reviews today in a big win over second-place Rapid Wien...
