Spoken like a Chelsea fan who is watching Mudryk stink up the joint.

But seriously, it seems like this was just a precaution with some rest as the US doesn't need him vs T&T

LOL whatever man, I wanted him to succeed at Chelsea, the mangers and English fans would never accept him. Plus he is always picking up injuries even going back to Dortmund, and precaution or not, he came off injured on Tuesday in Milan's CL match. His playing style leads to injuries as he is fouled a lot and his body can't take the abuse.

So the ref made a bad out of bounds call....leading Dest to throw a wild tantrum and get double yellows. Give him the Gio treatment, or let him play wiht the U16s til he grows up?

It was a pretty egregious call... but nothing out of the ordinary for CONCACAF.

Gio throwing a tantrum in practice (allegedly) is not even in the same league as now two separate instances of getting thrown out of games and causing us to play down a man in games that matter. I'm not sure what should happen, but if I was a teammate I would have a hard time trusting him.

This should make for good fodder at the next leadership conference that GGG speaks at though.

If John Brooks can get frozen out by GGG surely Sergino Dest can get frozen out. This is 2 games in the span of 6 months he's been sent off from.

Ironically I believe the Ref last night was the 4th official in the last game he was ejected from.

Honestly I don't get why he acted that way, you were up 4-0 on aggregate and had a 1-0 lead, so the ref missed a foul earlier and they missed you keeping the ball in play, they also missed a clear corner for T&T that was awarded a goal kick, its not like CONCACAF isn't known for having shitty refs and line judges.

Quote :
"Gio Reyna to Nottingham Forest, here we go! Agreement sealed with Borussia Dortmund on loan deal.

#NFFC to cover Reyna’s salary until June.

Nuno was pushing to sign him and deal now in place also with his agent Jorge Mendes.

Medical tests also booked. "

Hate this deal for him tbh. EPL seems like the wrong league given his injury history. There are teams where he would be a top option too and be guaranteed playing time and Forest ain't it.

He will get the opportunity to prove himself then.

Nation's league semis against Jamaica on Thursday. It's the first competitive game in a bit. Also, new kits for the summer were released. I kinda like them... at least they are an improvement over boring world cup kits.

What a week for Haji Wright

What a pass by Reyna on that first Wright goal.

GK is going to be a huge problem for them. Turner is definitely out of form, he looked shaky all night, still made some saves but not looking like the level he was at prior to his move to Arsenal.

Its sad to see as this used to be the position of strength for the US, but Steffen and Turner moving to big clubs in England and not getting much game time ruined their progression. Not that I blame them. Turner and Horvath not playing regularly is an issue, Callender is probably the only one playing regular minutes of the 3.

yes I know where he plays now

Steffen plays for Colorado Rapids now but his downward trend happened when he joined Man City and didn't get regular minutes. Turner joined Arsenal and the same thing happened no regular minutes and his form has suffered.

And now he has been benched at Forest, he will be back in MLS this summer I would expect and maybe that will resurrect his form.

We got absolutely lucky AF against the Jamaican B team here. I'm just sick of watching Berhalter ball. Hiring GGG is basically throwing away a once in a lifetime opportunity to host the World Cup with the most talented and deep pool of players we have ever had.

I have no idea why Gio didn't start and I don't know why a coming-back-from-injury Tyler mf Adams is coming on when you need an equalizer goal. A creator, he is not.

Turner got benched because he was playing like dogshit. It definitely doesn't help that the team around him is about to get relegated, but his confidence has been shot since the move. Gk seems to be a position where confidence seems to be everything and I too am surprised by how weak and uncertain this position has been for us post WC

Yes that would be interesting to know.

The reality is until they make them start forfeiting matches its not going to stop, and even then I don't think it will stop.

Truthfully CONCACAF doesn't really care, its why they try to maximize crowd size by having non Friendlies or WCQ at venues that will get a large amount of Mexico supporters.

^This is "care theatre". Noone in charge really cares (or is willing to exact big enough consequences to stop it) but they have to pretend like they do.

That was definitely a no No NO... YESSSSSS!!!!! moment from Adams. If he takes another 100 of those, he doesn't hit it like that one more time. I still think our best lineups against most CONCACAF teams (mexico being the exception) don't have Adams in them. He is too limited creatively.

Gio is still on his "GGG is a dumbass" tour racking up goals and assists even when he has to come play LB to get the ball.
