    Ledezma did his ACL yesterday in Europa League and will be out the rest of the season and almost certainly next summer's matches.

    With Pulisic out again today due to hamstring concerns Iím officially moving Reyna to LM in my USMNT depth chart. Itís where he shines. Pulisic, when healthy, can play on the right.

    Maybe if France move to the moon and play in that tournament. Or we could just invade them and keep their player. Either works.

    Eh, the French will return to form soon and let their egos ruin a tournament or two.

    It will be another generation or two before the US is a serious contender for the WC but I fully expect a run in 2026. Semifinals or bust. South Korea did it in 2002. And we would have joined them if VAR was around, fucking Torsten Frings.

    So Neymar, in addition to being a petulant prick on the field, is a horrible person off as well. Would love to see him banished from the Brazil soccer landscape.

    Two USMNT camps in Orlando this month

    The camp, set to begin on Jan. 9, will be comprised of two rosters, with 12 players gathering under U.S. manager Gregg Berhalter and another 26 Olympic-eligible players looking to impress U.S. Under-23 manager Jason Kreis. The senior team group, all of whom are aged 24 and older, will train alongside the U23s through Jan. 24, at which point several U23 players will be elevated to the full national team roster in advance of a planned match at the end of the month. One report has the U.S. facing Serbia in Orlando on Jan. 31.

    I assume the only reason that McKenzie is not on that roster is that his Euro move is imminent?

    Yeah I imagine he's McKenzie is off to Genk this week. Nice to see Matt Turner and Henry Kessler from the Revs. They both had great years. Turner is ready to start in a CONCACAF type event, though he needs to be stronger in the air. Kessler has loads of potential. Really good on the ball, just needs more experience to avoid overcommitting. Disappointing Anthony Fontana didn't get a call up. He was one of the more promising players i saw this year, though he got limited minutes for Philly.

    Busio, Bassett, Fontana, and Caden Clark biggest "snubs" but whatever. I like this mixed camp and honestly hope we just go balls to the wall in the Olympics and let the fringe guys play the Gold Cup. Work out some sort of deal with clubs where we won't call up for friendlies or whatever.

    We could start this lineup in the Olympics using two of our three overage exceptions:

    Pulisic-Sargent-Reyna
    McKennie-Adams-Musah
    Robinson-Brooks-Richards-Dest
    Steffen

    You can also bring another veteran CB with the third exemption and fill the bench with talented U24 players. That team could win the Olympics against other U23 sides. Winning the Olympics would be massive for us - from a team building and domestic marketing perspective.

    Only argument against this is seeding for the WC in Qatar. It used to be if you weren't in the top 8, then it didn't matter and you were pooled with your confederation for the draw. But now, all pods are seeded and there's a significant advantage for us being in pod 2 vs. pod 3 for the draw. We will need a strong showing in both WCQ and the 2021 Gold Cup to safely land in pod 2.

    Daryl Dike back in camp, I think he's 100% in for the US moving forward. Ayo Akinola back in camp with Canada for the 2nd time in a row. I think it's safe to say he'll choose Canada moving forward (probably smart)

    McKennie with a goal off the bench today.

    19 year old Matthew Hoppe with a hat trick for Schalke today against Hoffenheim in his third career start. All three were nice goals, and solid finishes. Particularly the first which he chipped over the keeper.

    Young Yanks are fucking busting out of the seems across Europe. A saw some stat that we have more combined U20 goals + assists in the Top 5 leagues than all nations except England, France and Spain. More than Italy and Germany. (Maybe It was Germany, not England, I canít find the tweet. Regardless weíre fourth)

    Get hyped boys and girls.
