    Kenny will start this one on the bench, as Anderlecht travel to Slovakian Champions Spartak Trnava, in the Europa League - Group Stage

    Kenny was very active during his 25 minutes, constantly positive on the ball. Trnava's goal came off a corner that Kenny wasn't tasked with defending (he was looking to lead the counter well outside the box). During injury time he had a great move the resulted in a near-perfect cross that the striker couldn't put on frame after just mistiming his jump.

    I hope he's healthy in October, his positive play from the wing would gel really well with Sarachan's 4-1-4-1.

    I've known few players over the years that did for whatever reason. I don't shave my legs but funny thing is, I no longer grow hair a few inches above my ankles from years and years and years of taping them. I rarely used pre-wrap so i assume tape ripped out the follicles. If you notice it, it does look funny but I'm blonde so it takes long staring to notice. :D

    I did it when I wrestled. It made it hard for opponents to get a grip on a leg.

    And shaved a few much needed ounces off my weight.

    subbed on in the 82'. Match ends 0-0 despite Anderlecht playing up a man for almost 70'. I wonder if Vanhaezebrouck is under any pressure...

    He's stylish but the product is just not there, that's why he's a bencher. Also, about half of his long passes end with the other team.

    On the other hand, seven minutes for an "all-touches" video, for a guy who's only played 88 minutes this season, is not bad. It indicates he was very active in his four appearances.

    I watched most of the all touch video. He is tidy with the ball and crosses well. With better finishing he would of had a half a dozen assists. He is the type of player you would want against a team you can have some possession against. He does not look like the type of player that creates a shot for himself but creates for others. We have another player in our pool that I would use against a team that you would have to counter on.

    It's almost as if he is a little bit rusty after dealing with a wave of injuries the 15 months.

    He'll start for Anderlecht when he's 100% fit and recovered

    For us, he's an adequate player to play on the other side of Pulisic, if the latter continues being our RW.

    If Saief doesn't get injured again, that is.

    I don't think he's good enough for a Top 20 NT. But at this point we're not one of those, whatever the FIFA ranking says next month.

    Subbed on for Andy Najar in the 66', 2 minutes later RSC conceded. They were playing a man down for the entire 2nd half. Anderlecht are now 1-3-1 in their last 5 games across all competitions.

    They not only lost to Zagreb 0-2 at home, they also got dominated, even when it was 11 v 11. Ten shots on goal for the visitors, only two for Anderlecht. Their keeper was their MOTM.

    from this formation...seems he would be a candidate for Left Back for USMNT.....but most US followers seem to want him more forward or even centrally as an attacker.

    He tends to play much higher up the pitch than a left back, and isn't expected to track back and defend as much as a traditional wingback. Late in games he's sometimes asked to play higher, either as a central winger or even as a no. 10. He's much more of an attack-minded player than a fullback.
