    With the 2017 preseason officially starting Monday, I thought I'd start a thread to collect newsy stuff. Looks like we're going to Argentina, which is really exciting, and we have CCL on February 23rd, just over a month away. Let's go to work, boys!

    Most interesting pre-season battles?

    Left back............................: Figueroa, Chala, Hernandez.
    Keeper: Seitz versus Gonzalez
    Forward: Urruti versus Colman (in theory).

    Kind of odd since he's an international. Hope they didn't pick up a big problem that he was unaware of. Those heart things are scary. Maybe just slow recovery from an injury.

    All three of them have CONCACAF games in February. Perhaps they were released to work with their teams in anticipation of those games?

    Manneh I think, sure. But looks like Hedges and Acosta were released due to injuries.

    OOOOF. Both injured............

    http://www.fcdallas.com/post/2017/01/23/matt-hedges-kellyn-acosta-depart-us-soccer-january-camp

    Acosta has been diagnosed with a mild left ankle sprain, while Hedges has a mild right knee sprain. Meantime, Manneh will join Vancouver Whitecaps FC on their preseason tour in Wales.

    Sound like minor injuries, but preparations for the CCL will seemingly be affected.

    I'd still like to hear a statement that they're being released only because of injury. With Manneh leaving to join his team in pre-season it seems odd timing for the other two involved in CCL to be leaving together. May have mild injuries but also have CCL soon. Guess we'll see if they never get called in again.

    Its worth noting that Zimmerman didn't leave camp (as far as we know).

    I hope you're right. Hopefully they're leaving the camp for precautionary reasons as there's no reason to "push it."

    We don't have a pre-season schedule yet do we?

    That's a good point as I had forgotten he was there. Must be real injuries then. If they play for the national team it won't be until the Gold Cup now. For Zimmerman it may give him a chance he wouldn't have gotten if Hedges were healthy although they might have been paired in a friendly for a half - who knows?

    My unpopular opinion is that I'm ok with them coming back to Dallas with minor knocks instead of wearing themselves out with the national team. It's going to be a long season competing for 4 trophies.

    I was country over club for so long. That changed when we fired Schellas and got our man. I always wish the best for our guys though.

    Many in the US are but I think that will gradually change as their club allegiances get deeper. I love the national team game but it's a side show to be enjoyed during the summer months, as far as I'm concerned. FIFA making clowns of themselves year after year doesn't help either.
