Andrew Gutman, back from loan to NYRB will replace Bello, "lower ceiling, higher floor". Behind him, the just-signed homegrown Caleb Wiley is expected to get first team minutes. He may be the best AtlUtd homegrown yet...... He's a fine MLS player, but he hasn't been so good that replacing his production will be a big problem.
I’ll be shocked if he ever plays for Arsenal. He’s a very decent MLS CB out of the Philadelphia academy. He played for the Union at a pretty young age (maybe 18??) at least for a CB. He’s played the last couple of seasons in Colorado. He’s a pretty aggressive defender, at times to a fault. I haven’t seen much of him lately so others can speak to this better, but he wasn’t a great passer when he played for the Union. I’m not even sure how he gets a work permit.
Thanks guys. I'm now seeing some tweets that suggest that this deal is really about building scouting bridges with the US and facilitating more cooperation on players between different franchises owned by KSE. They're going to loan him out to some other European club, but not seemingly with the intention of ever bringing him back. As rguilmar suggested, he seems unlikely to ever play for Arsenal.Wow. I thought Trusty had a very strong 2021 and deserved a US camp call-up, possibly even a roster spot with our relatively thin CB pool and congested summer schedule. But Gregg held off until the January camp.
All that is to say, he's a fine MLS player and could probably find success in many second-tier European leagues right now. But projecting him to break into the Arsenal squad is a stretch.
Paul Carr has spoken.Maloney came in for BVB to close it out and Bello went the full 90. When’s the last time we had 3 yanks on the field at the same time in a top 5 league game?
Levy is just going to keep extending his contract and loaning him out. He’s a loan cash cow for Tottenham.CCV scored the game-winner for Celtic at Rangers today. The Celtic fans have already been stressing about whether it's possible to buy CCV permanently; there is now a chance they will kidnap and repatriate him if he goes back to Spurs.
