  1. One of the things I keep reading is "Frank spending...." It's strange to me. In the US, the scouting, acquisition, budgeting, negotiation, etc... is completely separate from the coaching. The coach will have his say and get involved in recruitment of course, but that's really the extent of it. And that's how I see most modern football these days. I saw a comment about "why would Frank spend all that money on Havertz and Werner if he didn't know how to use them?" Now, I have no doubt that he was consulted on the targets, but he's not spending that money. That money is being spen
  2. My friend asked me after the City game... "who realistically gets into this City team from Chelsea?" And right now, we're just not there. I told him from that game - Mendy over Steffen - Chillwell over Zinchenko - and Probably Silva over Stones, but Stones is in great form it was eye opening. Sure, we still didn't play very well, and there's no cohesion with a midfield 3 of Kante, Mount, Kovacic, but man for man, we were still outmanned. Big Time When our young players have matured... I expect to put at least 3 players on that same list within a year or 2 Anj
  3. I was pissed, and I'll own it... you stay down like that, and you'd better be coming off... he should have come off if he was injured. From the moment Grealish dragged a leg back, Christensen only hurt himself and the team. Now those 2 points weren't only on him obviously, but it was so disappointing to see him get another chance and have it go by the way-side. I feel like he has to be about out of chances at the Club. He's 4th choice now...
  4. It's not exactly injury after injury with this guy. It's one injury that has been troublesome. And hamstrings are like that. It's not like a bone break, set your watch for 6 weeks, and you're healed. Hamstrings are like voodoo, they can linger. Hamstrings and Achilles. 2 you don't want to mess with, and 2 that have plagued us the last 18 months.
  5. We won't find out any time soon. We can't seem to get two fit wingers at the same time. So Timo... to the Wing!!
  6. We're talking about him as a striker right now, but he's rarely played striker for us. His ability to play wide has been absolutely crucial for us with the injuries. I've been hoping he'd get a rest, but every time it seems we can, someone else goes down. Including Ziyech and CHO this week. His work rate has been off the charts. His pressing and defensive contributions have been Mount-like, he's creating a ton of chances, he's leading the team in G/A in the league and 2nd behind Giroud in Champions League, despite bouncing around the wings. If this is as bad as it gets, I'm
  7. Bakayoko has been at least average to very good as a DM for everyone he's played for. We'll end up breaking about even on him, because we'll get a fee for him next summer. Of that window, the only complete loss was Drinkwater. Got a refund on Morata. We'll get close to one on Bakayoko, Zappacosta has gotten loan fees... Drinkwater... sunk cost.
  8. I was thinking either "Member of the Media" or "Politician" though the line between those two professions gets blurrier every day
  9. It really is odd.... we call out the managers for not using the younger players, and then we call out the younger players for not being the finished article. He's 21 for goodness sake and a dang good player already. I love having Mason in this team. We have a legit front 3, a monster at CAM, we need Mason and Kante to do the dirty work, and they're great at it.
  10. I mixed up the order of the saves, you can tell by the daylight... the second save on the clip, you see the first time he gets up rubbing his knee. Middle of the second half, and he had been under fire. It was 1-1 at that point. Then we lost 3-1. Tendon bruise just below his kneecap. That was Saturday night and he sat out on Sunday and is still icing today. So he was hurting, but not injured... I call him "day to day" 😀
  11. They do. He's at Alpharetta Ambush right now (link) But they have a kit sponsor right now from one of the regional hospitals. But I'll always be around for any updates 😀Thanks for thinking of him.
  12. I've gone to the Atlanta Blues meet ups once or twice, but I haven't been since they moved to FADO. hit me up though next time... DM or skinnedy@gmail.com
  13. Yeah, he's an elite baseball player for his age, so I haven't messed with it too much. We had rules here where we weren't allowed to punt the ball until they were 10... well Sean could throw it over the midfield line.... I'd say "that's my center fielder" Oh, and most importantly, I'm raising him right 😀
  14. So, somewhere on this thread I probably said I'd rather have my 11 year old in goal... 🤣 well, I was half kidding, but he's pretty dang good. He's not much smaller than Kepa, I'd venture a guess he's a bit tougher.. we took on Atlanta United's youth academy on Saturday night and he had a really good showing... (sorry for the proud dad moment)
