    This current USMNT has got to be the best we have ever had. I still remember our run in the confederations cup before the 08 world cup - that was something special. Donovan and Dempsey were so good in their prime.

    yes i remembered that team. that was the best. we beat spain, and almost beat brazil. it was the injury that killed us. Onewyu and Charlie Davies ( also holden?) all got hurt.

    Yeah we are all excited about the new kids

    Yeah, davies could have been something really great had he not been a dumbass... Didn't he crash his car while intoxicated? Was never the same after that.

    Loved Holden too. His injury was a real bummer - I like him as an announcer though lol.

    If the trend continues for minor leagues, looks like we can expect 14 players total for MLS TOTS.

    11 in packs
    1 SBC
    1 Objective
    1 Silver Star TOTS Moments

    In contrast, La Liga has gotten

    15 in packs
    11 SBCs (including the two showdown players)
    2 Objective

    14 for minor league, 28 for major league.

    Personally think it's pretty dumb they short change the minor leagues so much in TOTS.

    Ya they randomly started pushing out U23 TOTSM SBCs. Guess they're just making it up as they go!

    Just unlocked Adams from seasons objectives - played 3 rivals games as a stayback CM in 4312 (rays formation he shared). He's better than expected and even got a man of the match without scoring or assisting lol. Not bad considering Reus had a hat trick that game.

    Very nice. What chem style? Does he stay back like he's supposed to even with the H/H work rates?

    I have a catalyst on him because I didn't have a shadow available lol. Yeah, he actually stays back - probably due to his 55 positioning lol? He's very similar to kante.

    noticed that EA are giving extra mega boosts on pace for CBs. For example Otamendi in Liga NOS TOTS with the +26 pace upgrade even though only +9 overall.

    Did a little digging also on highest boosted TOTS: Lacroix went from a 66 to a 90.

    Applying this convention to say, Walker Zimmerman (DOTY 2020 season), we could say Zimmerman might go from a 73 to a 90 overall.

    Scaling up Otamendi's +26 pace upgrade (a 148% increase from his NIF's 54), that could mean Zimmerman's pace could go from 58 to 86, giving a card something like this:

    Now that's a CB worthy to partner Opara.

    Let's go. I think only Morris , nagbe, Zimmerman zardes, are worthy mentions for American in mls.

    I love to have Zimmerman but we need nagbe in midfield

    That storyline Nagbe last year was class. Too bad we only had a couple weeks to enjoy it before FIFA 21 came out lol

    Yeah, I'm thinking he sneaks in as an obj or a u23 player. He's been good at Juve and is an exciting young talent. I hope he gets in somehow.

    Fortunately odds are in his favor being a Juve player
