  1. I've been rooting for Baldi but he just hasn't been very good this season. Glimpses of brilliance every match but lots of middling play in between. Don't see it happening.
  2. It's a little surprising since they sold their best player and last season's leading scorer. Let's hope they can keep it up.
  3. He's been fantastic in Turkey - 7.3 rating for Adekugbe as Hatayspor win again today and climb to 4th in the table.
  4. I think it's gotten a little more likely that his ceiling isn't that high. The USL1 performances have definitely been a little concerning... But on the other hand he's 17 and a pretty small kid. It's not his physical tools that set him apart, so maybe we have to wait a bit longer than we thought for him to build himself up. Once that happens, we have to hope that the intelligence and agility he's touted to have can reach the level they're supposed to.
  5. Kennedy's back from injury, playing the full 90. He scored another goal but had it disallowed by VAR on a handball. Regensburg are fortunate to remain at the top of the table despite another draw.
  6. He definitely got a lot of negative reviews, and maybe deservedly so. I'm hoping he can find a way to compensate for the energy he's lost... maybe being a little more conservative without the ball.
  7. Not to mention, he wasn't in RPL when the 60 were announced.
  8. I guess I expected more from the league's best CB - especially someone who was in the national team conversation. He was on the bench for most of his stint at a newly promoted Vasalunds.
  9. I think the CPL still has a lot to prove before we start seeing every young guy getting snatched up. Borges is back at Forge, Pepple is floating around in someone's youth team, Attardo is in the Cypriot second tier and the Estevez deal only happened cause Den Haag's owners wanted him to play for Taiwan - he went to the Spanish fifth tier once his contract expired. Even Zator/Ongaro were underwhelming in Scandinavian second divisions. I guess Waterman is the closest thing to a success story. I think Farsi is the most likely. Abzi and Ferrari still have work to do.
  10. Nizhny complete the late comeback, and Ennin assists on the winning goal! https://streamja.com/d5nNK
  11. Found this on Twitter: (Journalist) - "Were you (Stephen) disappointed not to leave Paços de Ferreira in the last transfer window?" (Stephen) - "No, because Paços is a great club."
  12. No... I'm a stalker not a translator
  13. The mad man just went the full 90 vs Braga... and was MOTM
  14. I think we're at the point where much of our depth is interchangeable. We rotated 5 players between the Honduras and U.S game but still had basically the same quality 11 both times. I think the only question at this point is whether Davies can start all 3 games, and by the sound of it, Herdman sure thought so.
  15. I thought Adekugbe and Steph were sneaky good tonight. Adekugbe sprang Davies up the wing on the goal and made a lot of nice passes. Eustaquio did that thing where he pops up behind every loose ball.
  16. 1. Tomori 2. Kadioglu 3. Flores 4. Jebbison 5. Dias Then Smith I guess but he should be pretty safe... right? And then you've got McGill and Mitrovic in the next tier. Egypt keeps weirdly ignoring Marmoush but he sounds pretty committed.
  17. Camp photos already going up on Flickr. We've already got this gem:
  18. For sure. I'm more disappointed that those offers aren't there, when they seemed to be in January. No one remembers this anymore, but Porto were this close to closing a loan-buy agreement in the winter window. It's a chance he has to take, but it sucks that this is his only real option. Personally, I'm just tired of this or that move being a 'Pathway to a higher level' and so on. He's almost 25... there comes a point where that pathway disappears and he spends the rest of his career on a good not great team.
  19. They're a much better team than Pacos, and I don't buy that Turkey is a lower level than Portugal. Porto/Sporting/Benfica > Besiktas/Galatasaray/Fenerbahce, but there's not much difference after that IMO. Still though, I think it's a disappointing move. I'd take it over staying at Pacos who are shaping up to be a lower table team this season, but Steph can make it at a bigger setup. It's disappointing that no one else seems interested - there's not much else to say.
  20. Not a horrible move... still think he could do better. A lot of misreporting of the original source - some outlets are saying the deal is already closed but when they actually link the article, it says there are multiple clubs interested. I hope a few other teams join in to make things interesting at least.
  21. Pasher's back - came on in the 2nd half today vs Minnesota. I thought he looked very good. He makes these really smart plays all over the pitch and single-handedly woke up what looked like a pretty stagnant offensive display from Houston. He almost scored after 2 minutes on the pitch, and spent the rest of the game springing his teammates into the attack. The Dynamo commentators just love him. He didn't get much of a chance at the Gold Cup, and if we're taking a taxi-squad, he absolutely has to be on it with Cava not at 100%.
  22. Another assist off a good run
  23. He's in the starting 11 again. Game starts in 15 minutes.
  24. He needs to get off this team but I don't think he's shown enough to make it happen. He'll very likely be spending this season on a relegation candidate Pacos.
