I'll get about 15 minutes in of the Bayern v Dortmund game.... one of the biggest soccer games left this year. Dortmund has been fantastic.

Uneven half from Weston. Had two bad giveaways. One that led directly to a free kick goal(a very nice one too). Otherwise he's either playing a lone 6 or a central 3rd center back. He had one very ball over the top that Matondo ran away with but the keeper made a nice kick save. One interception that stopped a potential Augsburg attack too


When Weston dropped between the two center defenders he never hit the diagonal ball to the opposite wing. Not sure if he was instructed not to, if it was never on or if he lacks the skill / belief that he can do so. I have often thought his passing needs to improve and this game highlighted my belief.

Sargent was making good runs in the first half. He wasn't sulking and he pressed Gladbachs center backs from time to time. Bremen's midfielders had no cutting edge. It's gonna be tough to find a winner

Yeah he was afraid to advance it past midfield when he dropped back. Made a lot of safe passes to Sane or back to the keeper. I think it was Augsburgs mentality and overall shape that really helped them against Schalke. They went thru a few different formations and still couldn't find a goal. I still think they have no reliable strikers and Even the commentator was pointing it out during the second half.

Chandler had a good match he should be in the running for our starting RW spot. And who ever says Morris needs to go jump off a bridge.

I'd say our wingers right now are Chandler, De la Fuente, Boyd, Morris, and Llanez

Morris is probably the only player from MLS that should be on the Nats. He needs to bounce from Seattle and put his dog up for adoption.

I think Chandler is playing at his best now. But he is still 30 years old and will be 32 at 2022. He can't escape father time, I personally bypass him on age and other options that we have available.

Naw chandler is good. I'm older than that and I'm training right now to fight in boxing and MMA. Shit, Mike Tyson getting back in the ring at 53.

I am not saying Chandler is bad but he is peaking at the wrong time. And it is hard to compare football and boxing because how much running is involved in comparison to each other.

And I think it is awesome Tyson is talking about fighting again. Tyson's HBO special was fantastic. I still loathe Robin Givens and her mum to this day and it was interesting to hear Brad's Pitt presence in that fiasco. I would like to have someone interview him about his reaction about that evening.

But back to football, other options include Weah, De La Fuente, Uly and yes, even Morris.

Brian Kleiban has been dragging Morris, Long and Weston for an hour and a half lol.
Jordan Morris simply put has awful technique and iq and isn't useful at a high level.
Jordan has no offers out there and will never leave mls.

Our wingers should be closer to CP, Reyna, Weah, Boyd, Ully, Gooch, Konrad. Chandler can play either wing or wing back and should be automatic in the 23

Our best player in the last WC we played in was 33, so unless we have 23 players playing at a higher level he should be included

Brooks was very good. He really gave Havertz the worst time he's had in a while. No Uly stinks. They were up 4-0 late in the game. Hope he gets a shot soon

Don't mind Chandler returning. Still think Jordan Morris has room in the squad for the foreseeable future. He's a lot more technical than he's given credit for plus he actually puts up numbers for the Nats and Seattle.

Is Jordan Morris really a threat against decent international competition?

Last yr he scored 3x against Cuba, 1x against a disinterested Uruguay and 1x at home against Canada ,

This is prime overhyping. You guys are giving him credit for scoring against semi pro teams in blow outs.
