    why should Americans limit themselves in ways completely different from how europeans or south americans handle their careers?

    1-0 home defeat v. Newcastle, now winless in 3 against Sheffield United, Forest, and Newcastle.

    Wheels falling off a bit.

    Plays well. Such a good young left back. FFC wins 2-0

    Don't follow the FUT cards so closely anymore, but it's very very rare for an American to get this kind of recognition. I can't recall too many other guys getting a "top level" card like this. Maybe Puli during lockdown?

    I haven’t been joking here all season- a substantial number of Fulham pundits and fans think he is their best player (at least best player not from Portugal). He’s one of the absolutely best left backs in the Premiership and he’s still young. If he’d score 4-5 a season, he’d be considered world class (I think).

    I agree with all but the young part, he is 26. More like entering his prime few years.

    Good left backs are rare everywhere. Left-footers are like 5% of the population, even less common than left-handers.

    I can't do anything with my left hand but my left foot is about the same as my right.

    I'm not as special as I thought. I always wondered why everyone isn't two-footed since we walk on both and virtually do nothing special with either. Maybe just lack of even trying to use the left for years results in it not being used?

    I'm a little skeptical of the 30% stat. That's from a self-reported study of the general population asking them about which hand and which foot they prefer to do a variety of tasks (including kicking a ball). But, unlike the hand-related tasks, none of those foot-related tasks are the type where you would expect most people to be highly cognizant of their own preferences because it makes a big difference in how well they perform at their job or function in day-to-day life. I strongly suspect if you only asked football/soccer players those same questions, that 30% would be much closer to zero.
