I saw Qatar apparently is part of the Americas now.

Seems like a really good hire, I know Southampton 's behind the scenes team has been highly regarded for awhile, Man City recently scooped up their data guy. https://www.espn.com...-sd-sources-say

If this comes to reality, and its being reported broadly now, I think its a good move.

But as of this morning Folorian Balogun has taken down all photos of himself in an English jersey. We might just flip this guy!


Have not seen confirmation, but It would appear they got him. Terrific news if so.

Got up early this morning to go fishing. While eating breakfast I saw the news. While the fishing was fantastic, the Balogun news was even better. Can't wait for Nations League next month. Semi's against Mexico. I suspect Pepi will start but I also think Flo will get minutes. So stoked!!!!!

Hopefully he's that missing piece that eventually puts them firmly in the Top 10.

19 goals in 34 matches for bottom half team in Ligue 1 tells me this kid can score.

Sounding like Jesse Marsch is going to be the guy.

U20 World Cup down in Argentina starts today. Give the Nats a watch. They are a legit team.

US U20 best Fiji today 3-0 to set up the match with Slovakia on Friday where a draw ensures the US wins the group. Like to see them win and get the max 9 points. The match today wasn't as close as the score indicates. The US outshot Fiji 31-6 and 7-2 for shots on goal.

US beat Slovakia 2-0 so finish group play going 3-0-0. 9 Goals scored and 0 allowed. Doesn't get much better! They will play the 3rd place team from either Group A, C, or D on Tuesday at 1:30 EDT. Game will be on FS2

U20 play New Zealand in the Round of 16 on Tuesday. A very winnable match.

US beats NZ 4-0 to keep their string of clean sheets alive. NZ did have one great chance early on but Slonina snuffed it out. On to the winner of Gambia - Uruguay on Sunday.

 

Really good game today for the Nats.

Interim manager Anthony Hudson is leaving the program to manage a club team somewhere in the Middle East. BJ Callaghan, currently an assistant, will take over as interim manager for Nations League and Gold Cup this summer.

 

Really would have hoped they'd have the position permanently filled by now, but I guess with Crocker coming on last month they wanted him to have a big say in who the hire is.
