Weah is such a difference maker when he’s engaged and getting the ball in space.

Scotland > Wales >>> Ukraine in terms of my preference.


You can scratch Scotland off your list. Wales vs Ukraine next Sunday for the final UEFA spot.

As a Liverpool fan that would be extremely fun, but as a USMNT fan I'm not super jazzed about another situation where Pulisic is in a dogfight for playing time. At least Liverpool has a lot less dysfunction so it would presumably be a less capricious thing than it was at Chelsea. Personally I liked the Milan rumors a bit better for his long term trajectory.

wow, definitely good for US as Wales is far weaker than Ukraine - but sad as a neutral because Zinchenko is just so good.

I just can't find any interest in the CONCACAF Nations league - seems like we just finished playing these same crappy teams in qualifying and it's just waiting for the real matchups. The US would so benefit from being in a better confederation (not that this is a possibility but some combination with CONMEBOL? - I mean CONMEBOL qualifying is going to be a complete farce with the expanded field).

Why couldn’t that be an option other than it being a major geographic outlier? Mexico would seem like the more natural fit culturally but I’m sure they’d rather have a country that A) can bring in more revenue and B) give road matches in the US a home field advantage. Not like switching confederations is unprecedented.

I think he was talking about merging CONCACAF and CONMEBOL, which would have some benefits(CONCACAF would love the increased depth of quality, CONMEBOL would love having a better shot at qualifying) but probably wouldn't happen for political and logistical(imagine a Vancouver to Santiago window for qualifying) reasons.

you would have to do two road games in a window (ie play two south american teams once you are down there) but it's not really worse than flying from Europe - less time zone impact in fact.

good first half after a scary first 10. Musah is so good. Also impressing is Weah and it seems like Pulisic is much more involved.

Ferreira is obviously the best striker we have and yet the results are exactly the same.

Pulisic needs to do that thing QB’s do for their lineman for Aaronson. He is taking all of the hacks. Rolex, buy all his dinners, off-season golf trip, etc.

When Musah is in his prime, he’s going to be a monster. He will boss midfields for years.

Second half pretty blah. Weah is much better than Arriola. Could look at Aaronson for McKennie but I never thought McKennie did that much in the first half.

I wonder if the USMNT would be much better off just picking a 9 and going with it. The rotation and lack of repetitions just doesn't help and a lot of those runs need to be timed. At this point, pick someone and let them play together. Same thing at keeper - I think it's dangerous to keep rotating people in and out.

Christians really going through it, huh? Bad summer dye job is straight out of the Star player who no longer gives an f right before a big transfer playbook. I predict leaked photos of him with an insta model in Miami within a week of breaking camp. He’s truly taken us to the big time.
