He needs a loan but in a situation where it is a win-win. Hamburg is a sinking ship, sorry Bobby Wood.

We might have 3 Americans get relegated from the Bundesliga which are johansson Bremen, Wood hamburg, Morales Ingoldstadt. Their teams will most likely finish in the bottom 5. That would suck and be a big blow for american players in the Bundesliga, specially if Pulisic leaves. And green will most likely leave the bundesliga to.

Not necessarily, you play for who you play for. Out of those three only Ingolstadt is a small club and are not suppose to be in the top league. Hamburg and Bremen are big clubs, so it is not AJ or Wood's fault that they are having difficult times but historically they are pretty significant clubs in the league so for them to be playing for those clubs despite their current misfortune means well for them regardless.

Now if they can get through these difficult times, stay up and fight for a place in Europe next season then these clubs are where they should be. Still a lot of games left and maybe the new manager at Hamburg will excite the team and they change like the Sounders after they let Sigi go.

Wouldn't it be nice? I know Ancelotti likes him but it's hard to throw him in there with all those titans in attack who are fit and expecting to play.

Apparently Lewandowski is not practicing right now so maybe he gets some time. I did love him saying "his best position is striker". Seems he may get a shot. That counterattack goal on the pass from Wondo is the exact type of run Green can make and at Bayern he should get plenty of chances from close range provided he makes those runs.

I only saw the highlights but while Green never got off the bench, Timmy Chandler looks to have had himself a game. He was all over the highlight reel.

Chandler played exceptionally well. Was a threat overlapping from RB, had a handful of good crosses, had a shot bounce off the far post, and got an assist (even if it was intended as a shot that went wide). Was very impressed with his hustle & play for the entire game.

If Yedlin doesn't straighten out his play soon Chandler could/should be considered for starts against Mexico & Costa Rica in November. Timmy may not be as fast, but he's quick enough and he probably has better positional awareness.

Chandler has better football iq and technique than Yedlin. Yedlin is usually the best athlete on the field when he plays. Does his ability to cover larger spaces and recover when he's out of position make up for an unreliable 1st touch, inaccurate ball placement, and unforced giveaways, is the question we need to ask ourselves when considering who's better value at RB for US.

I'm always down for competition at the RB spot. But Chandler with Frankfurt and Chandler with the US are two completely different players. If he could achieve the same form with the US as he does against top competition in the Bundesliga then we have more good depth.

Yeah, Chandler's always blown for USMNT. But I do consider him a lock for Russia. One of those weird ones where he's a lock for the 23, but iffy/no on the first 11. There just aren't 4 outside backs in the US pool better than him and there won't be in 20 months.

Just more good depth? If he played for the national team like he plays for Eintracht then he would be one of the best RBs in the Americas, let alone CONCACAF, When you say that you speak of him like he would just be a sub mostly with some starts when Yedlin isn't fit or suspended, which is already is. Remember he plays in a lot better league than Yedlin and he is one of the better RBs in it.

Yeah he plays good club wise but stinks with the national team. I think JK has him 3rd in the RB depth chart behind Yedlin and Cameron. And even possibly behind Fabian.

Yeah but all he needs is a few strong performances consecutively and that will all change. Klinsmann probably rates him highly but knows he will get backlash if he continues to play him after poor performances.

I asked a question about Yedlin. Due to his poor development, he's prone to clumsy challenges, inaccurate crosses/ passes, poor positioning, poor 1st touches, and all around bad decision making.
Would we rather have him than Chandler knowing he's knowing that he's raw and amateur in his decision making and technique?
