Reports are coming in that both junior Flores and Jeremy embossie are coming to Mls next year. I'm all for young guys chosing mls but a little disappointed in these two decisions unless something new comes through. Embossie was training with shalke (scored in friendly) and seemed of have caught the eyes of some German scouts. Also unless mls can loan them out it means both are sitting out from now until February. Losing that much time at this year isn't a good thing. Maybe they can be loaned to usl until the draft or something.

Any playing time for Flores is a good thing. I still believe he has quality to offer the US MNT in the future.

I still believe in Luis Gil, just need to start playing, and playing well.

can someone explain to me Bedoya

He lined up right next to the CDM, so either he's a CDM or he's someone who's playing a playmaker lined up next to a CDM

Why was this so hard to understand during the game against Brazil?

Cody Cropper signed with the Revs.

When you are a young keeper it is good to get minutes and the Revs have been leaking goals so maybe a good situation to start with. If he is on the bench, I am sure one of the expansion teams will take a chance on him.

Cropper was born in Atlanta and grew up from age 12 in Minnesota, so I always suspected he'd go to one of those teams. But glad he found a MLS landing spot before then.

My guess is once the revs are eliminated from playoff contention (at this rate will be with about 4-5 games to play) then they'll let Cropper play. He's likely there to replace Knighton as the backup and be ready to take over for Shuttlesworth when his contract is up.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
