    If he could get on the field for the US he might be able to show something. 15 minutes at the end of 3 games is silly. And he was hurt at the beginning of the season, so production took a hit. The overall picture has not been completed.

    I agree and his team don’t play him the ball enough to where he could get double digits this season. I feel in a better team Nova could be a star.

    If he wants to reach double digits this game and the one when they host Breda (April 21st) are the games to do it.

    Had an accidental assist that caromed off him for a golazo ruled off on replay (if only they had replayed his awesome would be game-winning goal down a man from him earlier in the season).

    Immediately after had an intentional likely assist following a great dribbling run, screwed up by his teammate. Chipped the ball over the top of the defense to play the guy in, but he didn't look over his shoulder and let it hit him in the back of his head.

    Now he just beat the last man off the dribble and forced the defender to pull him down with all his might for a red card. Probably would have been another goal.

    Not bad stuff from a "terrible" player.

    I hope Shaft Brewer does an every touch for this performance so we get context on it in totality. A lot of ignorance expressed toward this guy without it.

    I would make an all-touch but I'm having trouble finding the goals from this game so I doubt I can find the full match.

    You can't control who your opponent is but you can control what you do to your opponent. Nova responded to being snubbed by Berhalter with a goal and assist. You can't ask for much more. Hats off to the Nova. Keep doin' what you're doin'. Big game. Big result in a log jammed, tightly packed Eredivisie table from 11th-16th. Fortuna are slowly creeping away from the relegation payoffs.
     
  12. The fun part is that it's so thight the moment you creep just out of the danger zone, you then are in the play off chances zone for an EL spot

    Isn't he going to be with the u23's with a bunch of the other young attackers?

    I'm pretty sure he's not age eligible. Turns 24 at the end of next year. He's always seemed to miss the cutoff for youth teams. If his mom truly loved him she'd have induced labor months earlier to set her son up with a better life.

    Nice to see him use his height effectively. I haven't seen much of that before (not that I watch anything other than highlights and USMNT appearances).

    I suspect that Fortuna are going to rely on that direct style more as the season winds down.

    A progressive asks for permission before he holds his girlfriend's hand.

    Nova deserves another shot for sure. Playing on one of the worst teams and becoming consistent since his long lay off from injury

    With our current striker pool, even though he's subpar (IMO), he does deserve another shot. If Wright, Weah & Sargent continue riding pine, this guy (for all his many limitations, and you'll see them in time) may well be Jozy's replacement.

    In that case, I ask you for permission to hold my girlfriend's hand.

    she’d probably say she’s a Democrat herself. Barely.
