    the effect on Soto is unknown. As with any relegation, players jump ship, whether the club buys or loan in players next season we won't know until Summer.

    clubs like H96 likely want to be promoted again, so they might want experienced players.

    Blaine is not hyped as much as others on these boards and in the twitter verse but its good to recall he started almost every game at the U17WC and made the move overseas at 18. It's good to see him going about his business and working his way up the ladder in Germany. Expect good things from him in the future.

    Blaine Ferri now moved up to Gruether Furth U23 team. That didn't take long.

    That's good news! And it looks like Furth avoided relegation from Bund2 (barely).

    I never know what to make of U23 inclusion. Our best prospects in Germany (Pulisic, McKennie, etc.) essentially passed over the U23 level.

    Just in time for the GC.



    EPB's had a very good second half of the season. Should be on the GC roster.



    He's been dominant for Schalke II this season, but he needs to now get consistent first team football.

    Adams, Pulisic and McKennie all started today. Adams went 64 minutes. Leipzig has the Cup final left, so he could start that next season. McKennie went 90, and his season is over. Pulisic went 90 and his season is over. Pulisic and Adams teams both qualified for the UCL, although Pulisic is leaving to Chelsea, so he'll still play in the UCL next season.

    Pulisic ended the season with 7G, 6A in 1601 minutes. Thats a G or A every 130.8 minutes, which is a little shy of his best mark at Dortmund two seasons ago of 129.1, but its much better than last season (253.2).

    Sargent: He ends the season with 7G, 2A in 1062 Regionalliga minutes, which is a G or A every 118 minutes, a very good rate. He had 2G, 0A in 205 Bundesliga minutes, which is also a very good rate, albeit a smaller sample. A very productive season for Sargent. The only problem is the lack of minutes in the second half of the season. He only played 7 minutes (at any level) for Bremen in the months of March, April or May. He needs to be playing every week somewhere next season, whether its a loan or Bremen decides to give him more first team playing time. They barely missed out on qualifying for Europa League, so thats a bummer on that front.

    Here's a highlight video made by ShaftBrewer of his play this season.



    Soto: He ends the season with 17G, 6A in 2061 U-19 league minutes. G or A every 89.6 minutes. Below 90 is a dominant season. He also played 25 Bundesliga minutes. Hannover was relegated, so Soto could figure to get more regular playing time next season in the 2. Bundesliga. There was an article out of Germany that speculated he might not want to sign a pro contract with Hannover, so that could be something to watch for.

    Here's a highlight video made by Shaft Brewer of his play this season.



    Gloster: He ended the season starting the last 12 Regionalliga games he was available for. Early in the season, he was in and out of the lineup and also played four games in the U-19's, but had a good end to the season. With Hannover relegated to 2. Bundesliga, he should be in line for some minutes with the first team next season. If he's not, he should think of leaving the club. He's too good to not be playing first team football somewhere.

    Mendez: He ended the season with 3G, 1A in 859 minutes for the Freiburg U-19's. Thats a G or A every 859 minutes, but I believe he was playing a little deeper in midfield for Freiburg, so the stats might not matter as much.

    He will likely play next season for Freiburg II in Regionalliga. There was one played promoted directly from the U-19's to the first team last season, but it seems like most of the U-19 team players end up going to Freiburg II prior to playing for the first team, if they ever reach the first team. I think we would've heard by now if he was going to be given a first team contract.

    Here's a highlight video made by Shaft Brewer of his play this season.



    Richards: Ended the season playing 2449 minutes for Bayern U-19's, including the UEFA Youth League. He was on the bench one game for Bayern II. Bayern II are in the promotion playoffs to get promoted to the third division, which wouldn't be a bad level to play at next season, if Bayern chooses that for Richards instead of a loan. He'll also still be eligible for the UEFA Youth League.

    Booth: He played 419 minutes for Bayern U-19 this season after getting his debut in March. He started the last five games of the season. He scored 1 goal. Next season he'll likely be one of the key players in the U-19 team, and should be a regular in the UEFA Youth League team. Getting into some Bayern II games might also be a possibility, depending on how highly he's rated at Bayern.[/USER]

    Highlights of the last game of the season for EPB against PEC Zwolle. He started the last 12 games he was available for.

    He's mostly played as a LM, but also started a game at LB.

    Courtesy @Ger90 in YAA we know that '00 Giona Leibold has made his first-team debut for SV Wehen, which is pushing for promotion to B2.

    I think we see a lot of guys either move up or move on. Guys like Klinsmann, Olosunde, Fossey, and De La Torre might be considering moves back to MLS. That's just what happens when you get old and haven't gotten anywhere. They'd still be useful to a NYRB, though.

    I'm excited for preseason. There should be an unprecedented amount of youngsters with big clubs.

    Akale seems like another one to watch. Turns 23 in January.

    Do we have a clear report on his contract situation with Villareal's reserves?

    From a google it looks like he's signed through next season.

    I would love to see a small fee to bring him to MLS, LAFC is likely be aware of him (they brought Josh Perez in on a free transfer last season) and Minnesota would be a good fit as well

    Really hope he and his agent work on getting him sold this summer, or maybe a loan w/ a buy option. The loan army rule is supposed to go in effect for the 20/21 season, which would force City to sell EPB unless he somehow qualifies for a Work Permit and ends up good enough to be a 1st team player there.

    Apologies for totally missing @ussoccer97531's Leibold post directly above mine, and then further polluting this thread with this post in which I apologize for totally missing said post.
