    The on going debate is what to do? The game was stopped twice both times too late to really affect the game. Fans were ejected. If you start fining the Mexican Federation then you might find that USA fans are willing to help lighten their wallets and in doing so only exasperating the situation. So I am curious. I what do you propose to do to stop this from happening with the understanding that 100's if not 1000's of fans are involved?

    Guess, can we stay on topic. Let's keep the discussion about Wes' best role/position, please. Appreciate it.

    Ok, resignation it is. What if they chant "gas the jews" or do monkey chants? Just ejections?

    Homophobic hate speech is a real problem and hammers need to be brought down on Mexico fans and their federation. Ban from tourneys. Ban from playing in the US. Whatever. Let me guess, you're a straight white guy?

    Ironically a bunch of straight white people with a very loose understanding of Mexican Spanish were the ones who decided this was beyond the pale offensive.

    It will never stop, and nobody will do anything about it because Mexico is the major money maker in CONCACAF from selling nostalgia to Mexican Americans.

    Weah subbed on today and made a big difference, assisting on the goal that put Juventus through to the Coppa Italia Final.

    Finally does something noteworthy for Juventus... and in a very important situation. Subs in and gets the game/tie winning assist in the 80+ minute. It may have been a shot on goal but hit w/ power and intention thru the danger zone for a tap-in. Hoping this starts a nice little run of form for him... he certainly could use it.

    He had some janky touches when he first came on, but a few nice moves as well - the assist was inch perfect if that's what he intended to do and he had a good, important block late in the game in the box as well. Looked very confident after the assist (unsurprisingly) and did a lot of useful chasing to help kill the game.

    It looked like a cross to me, but hit very hard

    For those who missed it. Tim at 7 mins here. Worth staying to watch the team mob him - clearly really happy for him as well as themselves, but the congrats was much longer and more pronounced live.

    Also, if you look at the final angle shot back toward Weah it sure looks like he looks up for Milik after he hits it. I had thought it was a centering pass, but only he knows for sure.

    also worth checking out Taty's 2nd goal - a CFs goal all the way.

    Taty would be a good DP signing for NYC. He's affordable and the fans love him.

    ... plus he could continue working towards the residency requirements he needs to attain US citizenship :cautious:

    Sadly, NYCFC sold him to Lazio last summer and would have to re-purchase him :unsure:

    Those are the kind of crosses he regularly hits for the national team. Always low and very hard. Any kind of touch and they bounce in.

    Timmo came off the bench in the 81' to help Juve see out the Coppa Italia final!

    What is so interesting about that interview is Weah’s affect. He’s answering all these cliched questions about how it feels, how about the fans, all that junk. And he’s Nuke Laloosh on qualuudes.

    Then he gets asked about music and you see a real person. Loved that.

    He still needs a marquee season. Whatever the hardware, this is not the profile of a top club player:
