    Jordan Pefok pounces on a poor back pass in 95th minute and puts it away for Swiss Champs Young Boys in a 2-1 win over Manchester United :eek::eek::eek:

    BBC's preview of Chelscum's Euro match led with a detailed account of Christian Pulisic's injuries and efforts to get into playing shape. To sum it up, he's not ready, although they hope to let him have a few minutes on the pitch sometime in October. What's disconcerting is that this is his third major long-term injury since arriving in London. He is, IMHO, by a large margin the finest footballer the USA has produced, but I'm afraid he's going to be remembered as a never-was sick note. We'll see.

    saw that Cameron Carter-Vickers [now of Celtic] made the Scottish Premier League best XI of the half-season. I'm wondering if this might rejuvenate his international career.

    Dike to WBA.

    United States international Daryl Dike has joined West Bromwich Albion from Orlando City on a permanent deal on a four-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee, the Championship club announced on Saturday.

    Shout out to Josh Sargent on his first Prem goals (he had scored a couple in Cup play) for Norwich. His brace lifted Norwich into 17th and likely the short stint of Ranieri at Watford.

    The Norwich supporters chants of USA USA after the match had to make Sargent feel good.

    And this right after Berhalter leaves him off the roster for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers.

    Good for Turner personally, huge bump in salary, a chance to move away from an NFL stadium (can’t believe Kraft hasn’t at least broken ground). However, from a USMNT fan perspective, this is not great news. Our top 2 guys riding the pine?? Turner has absolutely no chance to play unless Ramsdale gets hurt. So we have Steffen, who CAN’T stay healthy in training (never heard of a backup GK get dinged like he does) and never plays, and now Turner who will get top notch training, but simply won’t see the pitch. Highly unusual to say the least.

    EDIT: Turner will at least get regular playing time until the summer when he completes the transfer.

    @astroevan Hit the mail on the head w/his gif on the WC Qualifier thread. I was doing a project at the casa and both the Chelsea vs Lille and Villarreal v Juve matches were on separate Spanish channels, so I was flipping back and forth. Weston hit a cross from around 40-45 yards right on the Striker’s foot that was a thing of beauty, the shot just missed. To get hurt that badly (tackle didn’t look egregious) is heartbreaking and clearly overshadowed a positive from Scumford Bridge;

    The Undead beat Lille (sadly Weah didn’t feature on his 2/22/22 BDay, which is obviously concerning); Pulisic had his BEST MATCH in a long long time. Forget the goal, it was everything else: Passing was sharp, dribbling was tidy, and when he did carry the ball it was into open space not just trying to get around a defender. He tracked back and defended fantastically, he stopped a long run by Renato Sanches (that guy is ready to move to a bigger club) that required tremendous skill and effort. All that was fun to see but it was his #1 weapon that was on display…his movement without the ball was BACK. He put himself in great positions again and again w/out that final pass getting to him until the goal when Kante found him. That was the Christian Pulisic we all know and love yesterday.

    PS: Berhalter sucks, but even he should see that Christian needs to be on the LEFT. CP is versatile, but w/McKennie out we have to put our best player in his best spot at the end of March.

    Tip of the cap to Jesse Marsch! Took over a tough situation and following a Manager whom Leeds fans consider a Legend, and has kept them up. I can’t see him staying long term, but Marsch deserves a lot of credit. American players have an uphill battle, American managers have it much worse.

    Looks like his first player to be signed is someone he coached at Salzburg
