Swansea man's golden opportunity and the dilemma it could give Potter

We're down to two senior center backs. CCV being one of them. It's a miracle this class b has been as successful as they have been this year. Ownership has sold off almost everyone and brought in barely anyone. Then they claim the finances are a mess, which is likely, and that's why there are not many transfers in.

Here's to hoping CCV can fill the void!

Bayern sign American Booth, 17, from RSL

Looks like Chris Richards will have another American with him at Bayern.

This has apparently been in the works for over a year, it just took this long for Booth to get an Italian passport through his mother's family to play immediately. I remember watching Taylor Booth at the U-17 WC and being impressed. Hopefully this move proves to be a boon for reaching his potential and not a hindrance.

And his Dad is the GM of NYCFC too.
If only that long volley against Germany hadn't curved left at the last moment...

And Tyler Adams looks like the real deal to me, Leipzig is 2-0 with him as a starter, outscoring the opposition 7-0. He's fitting right in with his teammates and he even looks like a natural during the opening ceremony.

Interesting comment:

The blackmail I was talking about was about Matt Miazga,” (Nantes manager) Halilhodzic mesaid. “He assured me that he had a sore back. After exams, however, there was no problem... He just wanted to leave the club.”
So Miazga and CCV have gone from Prem clubs, where they weren't getting PT, to Championship clubs. Hopefully Miazga gets consistent PT like CCV just got.

I would be surprised if Miazga ever plays a real game for Chelsea. Chelsea buys young talent in quantity, sends them to lesser leagues to develop and then figures out who a Champions league level player is. I loved Miazga as a kid at NYRB and won't be surprised to see him playing in the Barclays, but not for Chelsea. CCV, however, is a different story. Poch doesn't stockpile large amount of potential talent, and from all his statements seems to believe that CCV should develop into a good top level player. Obviously he has a ways to go, but I think he's far more in Spurs long term plans than Miazga is in Chelsea's.

And today Adams doesn't get into the game until the 91st minute as Leipzig gets shut out.

Granted it's not exactly starter's minutes, but Sargent got into another Bundesliga game for Bremen today (they won 4-0, he came on in the 88th). He's now played in seven of their last eight BL fixtures and even scored 2 goals. Working his way into their forward rotation very nicely.
