    Cole is good enough to play for Feyenoord, it's just up to the coach, if he wants to play him or not.

    Feyenoord, probably, is at the level of middle table BL/Seria A, above Lille. We don't have that many players starting at or above that level.

    He’s proving himself to be a viable option for Feyenoord. Proving that he’s a better option than some of the incumbents is simply difficult. Making progress and finding ways to contribute.

    Seems like everything is proceeding as planned before/when Basset arrived. Integration into the team and increasing PT with an eye towards him potentially winning a spot in the XI or bigger role in the team heading into 22/23.

  5. The spot Cole is intended for is the one occupied by Til, Orange Squad international, plus top goal scoring player.

    If he's that good already, why isnot Cole playing for the USMNT?

    I think Cole is an excellent spot right now. If it continues in this manner we should all be happy.

  7. Yup. When you got the talent, but not yet the total know how, the Eredivisie clubs are the best places to be. We're dedicated to get the best out of you, in our interests of course, but that nicely aligns with young talents interests.
    It all comes down in the end how good you really are. What's not there, we cannot extract.
    What coach Slot said about play and speed in tight spaces in the linked article several posts ago for sure has been talked about with Cole in the analysis presented to him in the talks he had.
    Cole has been set targets and given time to reach them with a whole staff to rely on getting there. In most other leagues it would be swim or drown.

    There is something to be said about learning your craft and growing into it.
    Guys like Cole and LDLT maynever going to be Top 5 league stars, but they can be excellent reliable pros, who are valued by very good teams.
    Nothing wrong with that and great for our Nats and the rep of US Soccer.
    Cole has more upside IMO. This path isn’t exciting for some, but when it works it s great.

    Appreciate the ribs. Well deserved.

    Should have said most goals come from mistakes and left it at that.

    I should know better, but goes to show how easy it is to sound like a patronzing “news” (use that term loosely) news broadcast.

    Til is on loan from Spartak. Heard anything about him making a permanent move or the loan being extended? I doubt he’s going back to Spartak….
     
  12. We have no clue yet.
    Edit: Unfortunately his good performance has alerted interested parties, rumours tell, so if it's coming down to a transfer we stand no chance.

    More of a holding midfield role today, trying to do deep-lying playmaker stuff while they chased an equalizer. Super engaged in short minutes, but also a few loose first touches. Playing very decisively, though.

    Fryenoord qualified for the Europa League playoff round next season.
     
  20. For his performance in the match against Go Ahead Eagles Cole was rated with a 6 by Voetbal International.

  22. Feyenoord is directly into the Europa League groupstage, due to AS Roma securing the serie A 6th spot. That means Roma is directly going into the Europa League groupstage, so Feyenoord doesnot need to win the final for that purpose.

    Good to hear. I forgot that Conf League gets you into Europa League.

    Does this mean there is an extra EL spot via the Eredivisie standings?
     
  24. I'm not sure if that's the case. It might be the case that a spot earned via a final cannot be deducted from the spot(s) available for a country. Germany thanks to the Europa league win next season have 5 teams in the CL.
     
    Winoman repped this.
  25. Although Cole isnot part of the 23 men selection that is entitled to play the Conference final, he was part of the crew that went to Portugal to prepare for the final.
    Slot wanted him to be there (and in Tirana), because the crew trains as one group and he's part of it and has a role in among others the tactical practices.
