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
Spoiler!

3-0 at half is an ass kicking, right?
Yes but SKC started 1 of their regular players. All the rest are 2nd and 3rd string, including the Goalie.

Yes and it's their 3rd game inside of a week. Have some injuries too but yeah, primarily because it is the Leagues Cup game.

This is "kinda" the same as the Chiefs benching all their starters against the Chargers last year.

This is the 2nd game in a row they've done this too. Saturday they managed a 0-0 game on the road playing mostly 2nd and 3rd string players.

Meh, this is not the game to worry about. Notice our coach just sitting down, legs crossed, not even concerned.

Keep in mind this is Leon's best players against a bunch of guys who hardly see the field normally.

Cam Duke has come in late in some games as well as Harris. They finally put Kinda in and they started Salloi who is our best player but he has already been pulled.

Names you want to know that aren't playing tonight or played sparingly..

Salloi..played 1st half
Russel..not played
Martins..not played
Zusi..not played
Espinoza..not played
Kinda..played 2nd half
Melia..not played
Pulido..not played
Ilie..played
Shelton...not played

Those guys are all our 1st string guys and goalie and haven't played or played just a little tonight

I mean we are getting woodshedded tonight but it's their best against our bench and deep bench.

SKC is in 1st place so there is that...

Really impressed with the talent level on Team USA going into the world cup. Most impressive is the 2 straight wins against Mexico with the second being without most of their top talent. Seems like most of the starting 11 are now playing abroad which only makes them better/faster.

Looking forward to the start of the Premiere League...hoping that ManU can somehow chase down City for a change. Been a long time since their last EPL trophy in 2013. Lets go Reds!

Supercup today, to kick off the season. Pulisic on the bench, which hopefully means he gets the start this weekend for the EPL kickoff.

EPL should be wild at the top, with significant upgrades for Cheslea, City and ManU. Just hope City doesn't get Kane...

Vermes is getting a little too cautious with these mid season lineups for my liking. The league cup shouldn’t have been treated like a preseason game. Especially after resting most of the big players on Saturday in Colorado. It would have been nice to have a good showing against a strong Leon side. I understand we need these players for the playoffs and supporter shield push, but that lineup last night was embarrassing.

Excited for the European Leagues to get going again this weekend. The Josh Sargent move to Norwich could help the US team if he gets some sufficient playing time. We’ll have to see how that all plays out.

SKC played a hell of a game down 1 man for almost 75 minutes and damn near won. The tie on the road is very much acceptable.
