    He is the #2 & Horvath is #1 & Leticia does not work hard he was given the number 1 in the off season without earning it ! Horvath with a good run in playoffs Horvath will give himself options in next transfer window plus Leko will be gone as I predicted so I’m sure new coach will value a keeper like Horvath. The Brugge fans are unfairly critical. If players like Vormer and Vanaken would play at the level they did today and score goals then team would have been in first place.

    A lot depends on Danjuma, with him FCB did very well, then he got injured and things changed :(
    He will normally make his comeback next sunday

    Genk is now 6 points ahead, which after the halving would mean 3 points ahead starting PO1

  8. Moeskroen with the backing of Bill Gates for sure has to be a challenger of ManCity and PSG for the best players on earth, donot they?

    I didn't catch the game. I can never find a damn stream. Either way, they lost 1-2. Now, bring on the play-offs.

    Horvath gets guidance from a legend to take the next step
    For Horvath, his time with Club Brugge has seen him experience the full range of the team's depth chart. He began last season as the starter and then fell out of favor due to poor form for six months, only to come back again. Even this season, he has been riding the fine edge between backup and starter. Horvath was consigned to backup duty for the first three months of the campaign before becoming the starter at the end of October. Since then, he has shown his quality, delivering a spectacular performance for the U.S. in a 1-0 loss to Italy in November.

    Horvath has made his mark at the highest level as well, recording three consecutive shutouts in the UEFA Champions League against Monaco, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid. Against Dortmund, Horvath prevented international teammate Christian Pulisic from scoring a potential winner.

    "I didn't even know it was him until he told me after the game," Horvath told reporters last week. "I thought it was their striker. After the game, he came to me and said, 'Why'd you have to save that?' It happened so fast, I didn't even know it was him. It was a real special night."

    Ahead of Tuesday's friendly against Chile, Horvath revealed that a conversation way back in preseason with Bayern Munich keeper Manuel Neuer helped set the stage for his bounce-back campaign. Both Club Brugge and Bayern Munich spent part of preseason in Qatar, and Horvath sought out the Bayern legend.

    "That [talk] was a little bit about everything," Horvath told ESPN FC. "It wasn't just about soccer. We talked about everyday life. It was stuff to help me and what he's gone through as well to see if it would [apply] to myself."

    The connection between the two keepers has continued in the months since, with Horvath sending a video to Neuer to get his feedback on things such as his positioning and how he uses his body in situations. Yet the mental aspect of the game is where Horvath thinks he made considerable progress, especially in terms of shaking off mistakes.

    "I'm only 23, and I'm still at such a young age for a goalkeeper, but it's difficult," he said of navigating the occasional error. "As I've gotten older and played more [higher-level] games, if something does happen, you've just got to forget about it and move on because maybe you still have to make a save in the game, or maybe something still has to be done in the game to help your team out."

    Manager Gregg Berhalter said during his news conference that Horvath would start in Tuesday's friendly against Chile. That was news to Horvath, as passed through the mixed zone on Monday, but he's ready for any eventuality.

    "If I am [starting], it's a good feeling," he said. "I don't know 100 percent, but if not, I'll support the team 100 percent. It's a great opportunity."

    A solid performance against Chile could see Horvath make a big impression on Berhalter, too.

    "I think it's wide-open," Horvath said last week of the competition among U.S. goalkeepers. "All we can do is come into training, and whoever plays the game, just show Gregg and the coaching staff that we're ready."

    I think posting large part of an article like this is against TOU for BS. Just put a link in next time with the lede.

    My bad. I think I had seen something to that effect recently. I'll be more careful.

    Was at the game. The uneasy feeling you get with him back there that has been felt at his time with Brugge was there tonight. Feels like you’re escaping a howler frequently.

    I hope that uneasy feeling eventually abates. Its a very bad thing to feel in a goalkeeper.

    could it be owed to not playing behind the likes of Miazga/Ream before?

    Whatever about Ream, he shouldn't have any issues with playing behind Matt: the Eredivisie and the Juplier league are of a similar standard, certainly at the top end.

    Given his propensity for dropping clangers, it'd be Ream and Miazga having doubts about playing in front of him IMO.
