  1. Anybody heard any backstory on the Verho(e)vens? I heard something about Zach not getting along with Pa, but that’s it. Nothing about what the disagreement was, where he’s going, etc. He showed so well the year before that you would think someone would have picked him up, unless there was really bad behaviour or he has some other plan like finishing school. Heard zero on Noah and why he’s unsigned. Injury or health issue? Anyone with any intel?
  2. Montreal just picked up Kamal Miller. Austin picked Miller in the expansion draft and then flipped him for 225K in funny money plus a draft pick. Wonder if he will be immediately available for the game against Olimpia, given that it’s in Orlando? Impact have a ton of players on the DL right now.
  3. I agree that he didn’t look as good against Nashville, but as sometimes happens on my over-48 team, there was a lot of static, watching-your-teammate-with-the-ball-and-not-moving-into-space, so I wouldn’t pin it all on him. At least on my team we have the excuse that we’re old and fat and playing for free. Priso’s teammates are just old.
  4. There’s no question that Jonathan is snake-bitten and he has to score that PK, but it’s hard to make a case for yourself when you get no service. I counted 3-4 balls it total in the whole first half that were intended for him. It seems like Lille players only pass the ball as a last resort a lot of the time. No cohesion.
  5. If we can set the site to automatically turn OH’s name to a string of asterisks, surely we can suppress a poster’s ability to copy/paste, no? Asking for a few hundred online friends...
  6. Can someone with more experience than me explain how this even makes sense from a business standpoint for OHL? You’re either in the business of winning trophies or selling players on or both. You have 12 players who probably represent a multi-million dollar investment — regardless of whether their value is insurance in case the 26 above them don’t work out or get injured, or whether their value is development for profit, why wouldn’t you get them loan deals where they can play meaningful games and stay match-fit? It’s like buying a fleet of nice cars but then leaving them out in the rain an
  7. Wow. Wouldn’t be surprised if this ended 4-4 at this point.
  8. TOTALLY. Can’t get it out my head now, thanks.
  9. Didn’t see when or how the tibia happened, but the concussion was obvious. Beckerman’s an asshole. (The Caps should send Cavallini and Adnan to pay him a late night visit....)
  10. Hasal out indefinitely. Bummer. He was the one bright spot in an otherwise crappy season for the Caps. https://mobile.twitter.com/WhitecapsFC/status/1310628706499481601

  12. Yeah, sadly as a PFC fan I have to agree with you. Campbell and Verhoeven at least have played (and not played) themselves out of contention, even despite Terran’s nice consolation goal. On the other hand, you can make a bunch of nice starting 11s from this list, even without the players that might be up with the senior team, like Cornelius and others. How nice is that?
  13. Other than those listed above: Schweinsteiger, Denilson, Kleberson, Branco, Matthaus all listed in the MLS article itself... (This would be a good Sporcle question...)
  14. Can’t remember which game(s) but I recall seeing Aleman have pretty bad body language with teammates and some selfish on-field choices. Couple that with the story of Boakai being benched by team decision for the last game and FC Edmonton’s struggles might have been character and chemistry issues. If Aleman and Boakai are not good teammates—regardless of skill— it would be a monumentally bad decision to keep them and drop Paulus.
  15. I think you might have something there—and they are the same qualities that make him captain material. Some players you admire for their skill but would never hang out with them as people. MAK seems solid through and through. I hope he finds a good situation or a good way forward. He seemed to be having a decent if not spectacular game up to this point. The foul definitely falls into the “distracted/frustrated” category as did LAFC’s non-finishing.
