    Yeah just saw that. Crazy!

    If I'm honest, I don't think it'll go very well based on his time at Monaco, but who knows, maybe he becomes like a Patrick Vieira in MLS

    Nice. Henry manager card Inc lol. Hope his pedigree can translate to managing. At least his players will have no problem respecting him.

    Blake doesn't have arms in this game, so any keeper besides him would be an upgrade lmao

    Here it comes again... The dreaded expansion draft.

    Hate these ever year, I think teams should be able to protect more than 11 players. I'm certain nouhou from seattle gets taken - which is fine, he deserves to start for another team.

    Lafc and atlanta are gonna take a hit here. Villaba is certainly gone - another guy that should be starting in this league.

    Who are you most worried about seeing snatched away from your club?

    Far too inconsistent. He’ll have a couple of games where he’s unstoppable but in the next concede a silly goal.

    No one. Literally no one. I highly doubt anyone poaches one of Chicago's bench/reserve players.

    @SAFC89 Swap Schweini and Bradley. Drop Yedlin in at RB. Unfortunately until Steffen racks up an IF or 2, there's no good American GKs, so you're gonna have to sub on Ter Stegen or hybrid if you want to be truly competitive with that team.

    Yeah I'm not too worried for FC Dallas either tbh. It's mainly a bunch of kids!

    Well, football is all about buying and selling children lol. Could see some of those kids being a good investment...

    Somewhat feasible as he's getting older and seems has lost his place to Icardi

    32 isn't that old these days - considering how well athletes take care of themselves. Galaxy will be bidding against a lot of top clubs in the world imo.

    LA is a wealthy man's paradise - everyone wants to live in california at some point.

    Btw guys, inform lodeiro is excellent at cam with deadeye. For some reason he does not feel slow.

    5 games, 5g and 9a in Dr.

    His runs off the ball are rapid and deadly. Not even being biased (maybe a little lol).

    Those passing stats especially are fire with Deadeye

    At first I put him in the team for fun, but now I can't take him out. I've rarely found a card like this that plays well above it's stats. Only complaint is he can get knocked off the ball quite easily. That 93 stam is great for a center cam too. Decent composure too.

    The other issue is that I'm playing Josef out wide cam - it's not a great position for him, but zlatan has to be striker lol.

    Potm vela isn't as affective out wide either. Sadly I'm gonna have to replace him with an icon - thinking either Barnes or Wright. That is unless we actually get a mvp vela card...

    Usa vs Canada tonight.

    Canada need a win and the usa does not. Last match, canada won 2-0... Love our brothers and sisters to the north, but I'm hoping the US can put on a show.

    3-1 USA.

    No pulisic in the squad, but we do have most others available. Including a possible debut by Dest!

    I'll be watching Dest's debut with mixed expectations... Btw, yedlin is back in the team.

    Good luck my Canadian friends.

    technically Canada can draw and still top the group :p

    but yeah... hope we look a lot better for round 2 vs Canada. Not a good look when you lose to a country for the first time in 30 years. I can appreciate what Gregg wants to do with the team in terms of making it a possession type of team... but if it doesn't work... it doesn't work. Maybe it's too early in his tenure to tell if he can make it work, but when WC qualifying points are on the line... we better have something that works.

    And yes, let's get Dest officialy cap-tied. no going back!!

    Dest cap tied! I still have nightmares related to not making the last world cup... My Confidence in this usa squad is pretty neutral ATM...

    One day some gifted young athlete will choose soccer instead of the NFL, NBA, etc, this gifted young athlete will be the next cr7/messi lol.

    Damn we need a world class striker in this squad... Zardes is just not the guy.

    pretty sad that a chronically injured, aging Altidore is still our best striker by a mile...

    I dont think Villalba will be left unprotected.

    I could totally see them not protecting Pogba and him getting picked up but in my opinion he is great and would be better protected than some of our other choices especially with Parkhurst retiring and us only having Pogba, LGP, and Miles at CB.

    Will definitely be interesting, could thing you can only lose one. Meram might be picked up too.

    I agree. Also, pogba is a bit under rated in this league... at least in the handful of games I've seen him in.

    Just got home, thought the game was on at 5... missed the first 2 goals, but looks like Morris is going for a SIF! Goal and assist so far. Hope he can add some more.

    Man, I wish the US could play with a purpose like this every night. Every now and again they get pissed off and just destroy the opposition. Other times they look disinterested. Thankfully this is the former, and without Pulisic too, which is promising.

    Hope one of our defenders gets it. Long 1G + CS? He'd have a sick card TBH.
