    He always looks good for Eintracht, which is why I'm baffled at his consistent bad performances for the US.

    He usually does when he's not wearing a USA uniform. :oops:

    Oops, guess spsct already covered that.

    Cyle Larin signs with Besiktas. That would be cool, a UConn guy play against Bayern Munich. Here's an article about Orlando's reaction.

    Sounds more like it wasn't a valid contract he signed with Besiktas and they paid off Orlando so Orlando wouldn't take them to court. Or they didn't want to go to court to figure out if it was valid or not. Larin is a bit of a dik.

    Tim Chandler almost always looks good in the Bundesliga. How many shots to look good in the red, white and blue does anyone deserve? I'm fine either way with the next coach wanting to call him up or having nothing to do with him.

    You're aware that Chandler has more caps for the US than Nagbe, right? :rolleyes:

    How many caps has Chandler had in the current cycle? Not that many by my memory. That game against Honduras was 5 years ago this week. It was bad. He was bad. It was also a midweek game in central america coming straight from a german winter.

    He has probably been our best option at several points over the last 4 years. Oh well.

    I was wrong about Chandler having more caps than Nagbe??? Maybe you should give Google a try before you claim victory, clown...

    Not since Arena took over. Which was the point.

    Yedlin is getting burned all over the field against ManU. He doesn't look like he belongs

    Yedlin is overrated.

    Search 'Yedlin' on Twitter and you'll see the difference of opinion between the UK/Newcastle and American followers. It's stark

    I try to watch as many games featuring Americans as possible. Sure, Yedlin had his hands full with Alexis but he looked like the weakest man on the field. He couldn't string a pass along and the 2nd half chance he had to cross the ball was embarrassing to watch.

    I like him as a player. I just think he didn't belong yesterday, despite the score

    He did have a really nice/dangerous cross in the first half.
