Creating a new thread for soccer discussion since the Euroís are done.

Most leagues are in preseason and Sporting KC are currently in a battle for the best record in the league to win the shield. We just sent Busio whoís a young Sporting youth academy player and possible future American star to Venezia to compete in the top division in Italy for a 6.5 million dollar transfer fee with up to $11 million with incentives and a 20% future sell-on rate if they sell him to another team. Not to mention another past youth academy player from Leeís Summit and another possible World Cup starter Erik Palmer-Brown looks to be joining him at Venezia soon as well. If youíre looking for an Italian team to start rooting for with your new Paramount+ subscription they would be a good candidate with some local flavor.

The U.S has built a little power shift in the CONCACAF region with their wins over Mexico lately in Nations and Gold Cup finals and look to be in really good shape heading into the World Cup qualifiers next month.

Messi looks to be on the move as well. Letís hope itís not a worthless one to PSG for everyoneís sake.

Ok, CP feel free to remind me how gay soccer is now. Donít care. Sporting is kicking ass and so is the USA. Itís a good time to be following along. DiscussÖ

Just so people realize how big Soccer has become, Messi just finished his Barcelona four year contract of $674 million dollars.

I don't mind soccer, I'll catch a match from time to time.

For those who know soccer better than me, which league is the best? Premier, Serie A, Bundesliga, etc.??????

Premier League has the most top quality talent top to bottom. If youíre looking for the best competition, though, the Champions League is best thing about European soccer. Itís the top teams from all of those leagues in a huge tournament throughout the season.

Looking like Messi to PSG, as expected. Boring.

Lukaku to Chelsea is apparently close, expected this weekend. As a Chelsea fan, it's a huge fee, but pumped to finally have a legit striker. Hopefully, they can at least give City a fight for the PL this year.

I suppose real estate is expensive in Venice. Venezia's home stadium holds about 7,500 fans. Hopefully, Busio will get to play a lot and the team stays in Serie A.

Should have never gotten rid of Costa. As much as I hated losing Lukaku he needed to leave to grow and am glad he is likely coming back.

The loss that really hurt is DeBrunye. This team would have been insanely stacked w him.

I expect well see a lot more state side Chelsea fans now w WC in the near future and Pulisic emerging as a legit player in EPL.

Not a fan of the rumored move to fullback as far as his development goes for the US. We need him playing on the wing as much as possible. I understand it from Chelseaís perspective, though. Still sucks for us. Although, it could potentially turn him into a complete badass high pressing winger, but I just feel like we need him having as many chances to finish as possible, because heís the only real finisher the US has right now. We have other potential ones with Reyna and if weíre praying enough Sergeant or Weah! Taking Pulisic further away from goal will only hurt his development on the wing for the US. Letís hope itís not a permanent thing.

I agree. I think we're all (American Fans) hoping that doesn't happen with CP.

We still need to identify a legit 9 to have any chance of doing anything on the world stage. Zardes is so hot and cold and Dike didn't really do much to push him for the start in the Gold Cup.

Imagine KdB on the squad now? Crazy to think Chelsea had young KdB, Lukaku, and Salah and let them all go.

They played Pulisic at WB in a recent friendly, and sounds like it didn't go that well (unsurprisingly). His injury issues have definitely hurt his stock, especially now that the attack is so stacked - Werner will probably now move into Pulisic's preferred spot on the left, so it will be interesting to see how Tuchel uses him this year.

Doesn’t look like SKC has anything for Leon.
3-0 at half is an ass kicking, right?
