    Akinola or maybe Gioacchini would probably be that guy in the pool right now. Altidore and Sargent are more of deep lying forwards, Dike and Soto more lump in the box target types.

    Is Dike really that type? Everything I've been seeing with Orlando is them giving him the ball and he creates goals out of almost nothing. Quite a few from outside the box, no? Not my definition of a target type, but I'll admit i've only seen highlights.

    You might be right, he’s more technical than I’m giving him credit. He’s kind of his own type of striker. In fact him and Nico G are kind of similar in that regards. They’re “complete forwards”, who do a little of everything but could both stand to be more ruthless in front of the net.

    I just want to say that I really enjoy Brasky using terms from Football Manager to describe players over the past few years. It is like I can pinpoint the moment in time he discovered that awesome game.
    Football. Bloody Hell.

    Once he says Mezzala instead of an 8 I'm going to cum hard.
    Football. Bloody Hell.

    Haha its definitely the root of my positional vocabulary, thankfully the new FIFA uses the same terminology so I don't have to buy FM anymore, which has sadly become garbage.

    I had to google what a false 9 was yesterday, so there's that. But I din't touch a soccer ball until after high school so cut me some slack.






    Same with boobies

    somebody hasn't taken Watford to the CL knockout stages in 2023. And somebody has. (that's me)

    I still love the game and I've played it since Championship Manager 99. ....I'm old.
    Football. Bloody Hell.

    The US really could have used a Raumdeuter yesterday

    in college he seemed to be more of a hold up big body type

    encouraging to hear he's also making plays with his feet -- might be the real deal

    his transfermarkt value is quite low, though -- any buzz on Euro teams sniffing around?

    I think that’s true. But the goal he scored against us was a smooth turn and a unstoppable top shelf rocket.

    I’ll say this. As if I haven’t said it. Dike gives this teams options that I haven’t seen from the current true target strikers.

    No, I get your point. But those 50/50 moments and needing to help relieve pressure come up all the time. Not every cross into the box is on the ground. Need a guy that can win a header in the box. Chicarito seems to do better when paired with that guy (eg, Jimenez).

    Tobin Heath scored a ducking worldie today in the Manchester Derby.
    Most talented player the USWNT has.

    Banger!

    Its Gameday #2 dudes!

    Per Berhalter's press conference yesterday:

    We will start a "true #9" today, Reggie Cannon will start, and there will hopefully be a domestic camp and friendly in December.

    My guess for today:

    Llanez-Gioacchinni-Reyna
    McKennie-Johnny-Musah
    Robinson-Ream-Richards-Cannon
    Horvath


    Steffen, Dest and Adams rested - nothing more they need to do. Ledezma and Lletget for McKennie and Musah at halftime. Around 55-60 mins Weah on for Reyna, Soto for Gioacchinni. Otosowie and KDF also on later in the match.

    Today's lineup

    Gioacchinni
    Llanez Reyna
    Adams McKennie Musah
    Dest Miazga Ream Cannon
    Steffen

    Would have like to see Richards start but the rest is cool

    Apparently we wanted to make sure we had Tim Ream's speed back there

    (I kid...I like Ream, but Richards is the future and quicker, faster, and much better distributor of the ball)

    No problem with Ream rotating in as Brook’s backup at LCB. Just not sure why Miazga plays again over Richards. He’s also too slow to be paired with Ream.
