    To me, it seemed like he did not follow the play up field right the way (instinctively). After some hesitation, he sprinted up field, as if he realized that should be the play (my read). In some way, this hesitation might explain why he became so open, with no defender tracking him.

    He was doing well but decided to stop learning to protest his “Red Baron” nickname.

    He's got to like the Red Baron better than Werder Pumukl Sargent (as the Bild named him).

    Need actual Sargent news as last real news on this thread was 12/25. Guessing he's going to get more integrated with the starters in winter training camp but no news at all.

    Since he starts spending time with the first team; I imagine he signs a new contract sooner or later right?

    Agree. Seen his legs? This kid is going to be tough to be knocked off his position once he is set for his shot.

    Background - who is Josh Sargent?
    Sargent hails from one of America’s original soccer hotbeds — St Louis, Missouri. More specifically from the city of O’Fallon, which lies within the St Louis metropolitan area. Any sport-minded families will be aware of the region’s soccer history.

    “No US city embraced soccer more unreservedly than St Louis,” wrote David Wangerin in his excellent book, Soccer in a Football World.

    Soccer in the city developed in relative isolation to the rest of the country in the late 1800s, influenced by Irish immigrants but growing into a distinctly American sport in this region, even adopting its own variations on the rules such as 30 minutes halves — presumably with the clock being stopped for substitutions and injuries — and goal-line judges.

    The St Louis Soccer League which existed between 1907 and 1938 was one of the best established professional soccer leagues in the early days of the sport in the country — a heritage which deserves more attention. The city still doesn’t have a ‘top flight’ club, and his having to go through the MLS expansion application process in order to get one.

    The infamous USA team which defeated England at the 1950 World Cup, contained five players from St Louis.






    how is it possible that St. Louis still doesn't have a MLS club?

    Until now there hasn’t been a well-funded local owner interested.
