Please tell me the fat man won't find a way to bury him on the bench like last year. Want to see him roaming behind EJ, "lurking with intent" as Arlo would say.



if fatty keeps mario on the bench he might see his first supporters uprising.

I believe MLS still requires an option to buy on any loan deal, so we do control his rights to some extent (although he's still have to agree to personal terms I'm sure)

2 years, it's all I can ask for. I will root for his success and while I believe USA/MEX should be at Clink, if it is Honduras in June, there will be some seriously conflicted supporters. USA/MEX/HON can all make it out of the hex right?!?

What I've learned from these matches:

Yedlin should be starting over Johansson. He moves the ball so much quicker than Johansson and gets into the attack far more dangerously. His passing is far more accurate and doesn't just play longballs all day. He's going to make some mistakes early, but by the end of the season, he would be a stud if we give him the starting role right from the start. Buy out Johansson's contract and send him on his way and sign a center back who is better than Scott. Evans or Scott can be backup RB.

Mario Martinez should be one of the first names on the team sheet. He's so much more dynamic and has better off-ball movement than any of our other attacking options. I love Rosales and EJ, but Martinez has the chutzpah to try crazy shit AND the skill to actually pull it off. His technical ability might actually be higher than Montero's or Rosales'.

Zakuani looks like his head is in a good space. He seems to have the same confidence to take people on 1v1 as before the leg break.

Mexico and Honduras, yes. USA? Jury may be out on the yanks. I bet we're going to make very hard work of even finishing third, if not the fourth spot.

Anyway, soon as the Tiffert/DP forward thing is sorted, Martinez must be the next order of business. Need to buy him.

I'm not sure if the Veracruz was an actual DDC match, but I'm so surprised we didn't net one in this. Unless the highlights were totally biased, it seemed that we had the upper hand in this match. EJ is fast.. Him and Zak are going to be keep the backline on their toes..

Not gonna lie, pretty annoyed that all of these matches have been streamed for free on their respective clubs site and now it's on a channel I don't have and I can't find any streams. If anyone knows of any streams please let me know. Thank you.

Anyone able to find a way to make it full screen? Usually the streams have the option.
