So basically Berhalter put out a super goofy lineup, subbed his way into one that makes some sense and now we look okay.
great hustle play. Lletget has been all over since coming onI want to say it was Lletget, but whoever it was it was the play of the game.
Didnt he pass it to robinson directly? Had the 2 secondaries after.Yes Lletget. Three hockey assists I think.
The market isn't efficient enough for the best players to always be at the best clubs.
It’s not impossible if some guys don’t fit the tactics, but I don’t think that’s really what happened here and it’s dangerously cutesy-poo to bench better players because others happened to be on the field when Honduras ran outta gas tonight.
I think this is a very realistic possibility. You probably want to take another look at European based players though who are barely into their season right now but the fringe Euro guys probably are needing to be nervous. McKennie and Adams and Brooks I think remain automatic.
Strong agreement here, “best Americans at club teams” does not always equal “Americans at best club teams”. Sargent in the EPL and Pepi in MLS has less to do with their precise talent levels and more to do with where they signed their first contract.The market isn't efficient enough for the best players to always be at the best clubs.
Miles Robinson play for a middling MLS club and he's obviously better than a Champions League center back. But with the way things are going, Miles might be heading elsewhere sooner rather than later.
I didn’t have screw up the first half on the bingo card!It's starting to feel like last cycle. If history repeats we will get a 3-0 or 3-1 fairly convincing win and things will stabilize for a little bit and everyone will take a deep breath, only to see the team put itself back in harm's way next time.
This is it, right hereIt's kind of amazing how the whole identity of the USMNT has flipped. They used to be the team that overperformed their talent through cohesion, organization hard work and physical traits, now they're the team that underperforms their talent while teams that are tough and organized give them fits
Yes, Honduran goalscorer Brayan Moya immigrated to US illegally (mother lost a leg on La Bestia), played indoor soccer here, there, everywhere (incl Chicago Mustangs), with Dynamo U-23s, but couldn't sign bc he was illegal. Finally got tired of waiting and turned pro in Honduras.
