Very subpar weekend for Americans abroad, but check out this goalazzo from California native and Guayaquil City winger Michael Hoyos in a 4-1 win CD Olmedo tonight. I still think he’d be a solid addition to an MLS team and that he’d love a return home

@DanielSmith1022  @DiskerudMixPeople  underrate the enormous amount of dirty work there is in this sport. Forcing turnovers, blocking shots & crosses, being able to make dangerous run in the 119th minute after starting. Paul does that and his 1v1 ability & shots & crosses aren’t elite but better than decent

In Ligue 1: Reims 0-0 Rennes HT. Jordan Siebatcheu (who wants to play for the #USMNT ) with the start for Rennes against the club he played for since childhood in 2003 through 2018. Emotional game for him

@away_goals  @DontTreadSoccerI  put it on a lot more reasons, a lot deeper than than. But if you’re going to just go by roster compositions, there wasn’t anything from the forward positions. Dempsey was old & Altidore was either injured or coming back from injury the whole time. Central defense was poor too

Hey @PCarrESPN , when was the last time 2 American-born brothers have played each other in a top-tier foreign-based club game. Alan Sonora on the bench for Independiente & Joel Sonora on the bench for Arsenal de Sarandi tonight as the two clubs meet in Argentina’s Primera

Just back from vacation.. hope all is well. Thanks to @DanielKarell  & @SteveDavis90  for holding up fort. Writing resumes tomorrow for @classicASN 


I’d still rather share a stadium with an active railroad than a major league baseball team

So much talk about new #MLS  jerseys tonight but the Bundesliga was the best at unveiling jerseys in the 70s (you’ve probably seen this before, but I can’t take that chance)

Iceland, population 330,000. What's the population going to be 9 months from today? 500k?

Here is the hard fact: every #usmnt  player (abroad or domestic) is playing worse on the national team than with his club.

This is absolutely insane from Alex Mendez. USA closing in on a spot in the 2019 U-20 World Cup

You’ve probably seen it by now, but I can’t take that chance.

You don’t need me to post it. You’ll see it 1000x today.. but here you go
