Its crazy to me that either Weah or Akinola will be a bench player. That shows the kind of attacking talent we are starting to bring through our youth setup

George Acosta is a favorite of mine he has the kind of vision and passing so missing from the attacking midfield spot. If he can play to his ability he has the vision to play Sargent, Weah and the rest into open spaces. He is a big reason the team is fun to watch as he keeps the play moving. He has big upside to move abroad with a good showing at the World Cup.

I don't really know enough about those GKs, defenders, and midfielders not named George Acosta, but one think I do know is that we need atleast three forwards at all time and maybe even put another forward on a midfield wing, or even two center forwards and the other two forwards as midfield wings. If you want to get really crazy, you could go four forwards, but that might be a bit much. I say Sargent is the mandatory center forward and Carleton the mandatory winger. That leads to Weah and if he's willing to play on the wing or not, which I have no clue if he can and/or is willing to do so (although The Guardian does say he can play on right and center, so that works then). Akinola is fine and all, but yeah, with this list, he can take a seat, there is no reason to be ashamed to be on the bench with this. Hell, The Guardian just put Weah and Carleton on their top 60 prospects in the world list (although Sargent didn't make it, interestingly enough. Here it is btw https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-inter...) and Sargent had the 2nd most U20 WC goals (4) and was born in 2000, whereas everyone else with atleast 3 goals was born in 1997 or 98 (only 2 exceptions and that was at 3 goals). So yeah, it's an exciting time to have these kind of players coming through the ranks for us and it should be good. Potential for our first World Cup trophy.

The Guardian is like me, a technical snob who cares less about what you do against noobs, more about how you did it with your toolset. Because that translates to how you're going to pan out when your athleticism kicks in/or out.

I think Sargent's exclusion from the list probably has more to do with him not having a club team at the time they were doing their research than anything else.

I'm not ready to heckle you for this until I know more about what you think in this specific case.

Exited for tomorrow's match, probably only time I would hear both US and Indian National Anthems (I know Blaise may not like this, however, cant change what I am dude) at one go.

After that it will be an ugly match for India lol...

I saw that there are some U17 WC group games on FS1, but none for US, FS2 for all 3 for US. Once it reaches the knockout stage, though (which we will reach), then we will see.
