    Woah:



    I didn’t know that clubs had this kind of sway over scheduling….certainly makes things interesting.

    Especially makes you wonder the hierarchy of what one club says vs another. I’m sure in this case the Revs being the supporters shield winner had the most weight in the conversation, but it also makes you wonder about other games / dates for playoff scheduling and whether other teams can “opt out” of certain dates.

    That’s a huge nugget of info. NE Revs “opting out” of the Thanksgiving game. Crazy.

    I think people are reading too much into that. Because the Revs clinched the #1 seed (and the Shield) with a couple weeks to go they of course talked with the league about locking in their playoff date so they could begin planning. If the Rapids had clinched the 1 seed at the same tone they would have been involved in those conversations too.

    I think the bigger part of the scheduling is that the league considered completely throwing the schedule in the air and delaying the end of the first round so Seattle would host on Thanksgiving until the Rapids fought to keep the game they had earned.

    Nice catch... the press release they sent out to media said the game would be hosted at Dick's. I don't know why the website says differently.

    As predicted, the Dec. 16th date with the judge may have helped prompt a break in the ice dam. Will see what comes of Altitude's proposal to Comcast Monday and any subsequent mediation. I'll believe it when I see it, but it's a hell of a lot more promising today than it was a day ago... or a year ago... or two years ago.
    Maybe all games will be back in 2022?

    Kudos to the kit guy who had a Badji jersey made and put in Cinci's locker room though, that is a good shithousery.

    Translation:
    If you follow the MLS, keep an eye on Max (Alves), an attacking midfielder born in '01 that the Colorado Rapids have bought from Flamengo. In recent months, on loan to newly promoted Cuiabá, he has only scored 1 goal in 21 games, but has great potential.

    Max looks to be like Galván and Esteves, a young player who is still developing and several season down the road could be sold for much more than he cost in a transfer fee.

    Hopefully he is a much better fit for the style of play Fraser favors than Namli was.

    Also, it seems that Pádraig & Co. have done a good job of anticipating having to replace a departing player. Clearly, they had lined up Esteves well before Vines was sold and with Max he in a sense comes in for Namli and perhaps Bassett.

    And Cole Bassett scores on his international debut off a rebound from a Jonathan Gomez shot. Happy camper over here with my two teams - Rapids and Louisville City - being repped in that goal scoring sequence.

    Woah Gregg! You clearly haven’t watched his club matches this past season! The post / crossbar / inches wide were his worst enemies. :D Seriously tough, Bassett has a nose for goal. If he improves that finishing we are looking at a Lampard-like midfielder who can score while playing both sides of the ball.

    Um, are we going to have to say something nice about our former manager?

    Are we still talking about the Rapids’ Cole Bassett or is there an evil twin Bassett who actually has an instinct for the net?

    No idea if this is verified. So it's another FWIW post. Either way, I've filed it under "I didn't expect this!".

    If Trusty really is a target of Arsenal, I presume that they would put him on loan for a season or two before he would be ready for first team time.

    I'm still not sure I can wrap my head around Arsenal taring Trusty that high given that he has no national team time and just this season became a starter.
