    I believe he grew up in an abusive home in KC so his mom packed up and left when she could and they started a new life in Colorado - part of which is why she was going so far out of her way to make his dreams of playing soccer come true.

    Glad that the Rapids were able to be a bright spot in Ford’s path and I wish him nothing but the best moving forward…. And in any game not against the Rapids

    A tale of two tweets….compare Acosta’s dig at the club “CO pushed me out” compared to Fore’s goodbye:



    Man I wish we were able to keep Ford. I’m sure he’s gonna do great at KC

    Anybody interested in a burgundy Ford #24 jersey? It has a patch from our previous CCL experience.

    Down 1-0 in the 85th minute at the African Cup of Nations, Sierra Leone only needed a draw against Equatorial Guinea and won a PK. Then...

    Sierra Leone lost 1-0.

    I hate to say it, given that Kei is a great person and I was rooting for him and Sierra Leone, but seeing his PK's for the Rapids I'm not at all surprised at this result.

    Here's the PK at the end of the clip. It was pretty well hit by Kei, huge save by the keeper.



    Comoros, in their first ever ANC, get through to the knockout rounds in Sierra Leone's place.

    Josh Gatt starting his coaching career:



    Always liked the guy, and last I heard his wife’s cancer diagnosis seems to be doing better. For what it’s worth, Gatt is from Michigan so I’m sure it’s nice for him to “go home”

    I love when he says: "Only team in the league without a sponsor and we end up finishing first."

    That pretty much says it all. Kroenke be damned!

    After this weekend's international break the next 3 Feyenoord games are on ESPN+ on Sunday mornings. Including next Sunday (the 6th) where Feyenoord will have their cross-town derby with Sparta Rotterdam, who recently signed Namli. That game is at 4:15 am MT, the other two are at 6:30 am MT.

    So uh, I put this in the wrong thread. If a mod could move it to the preseason thread that would be much appreciated! Thank you

    While I was watching Celtic vs Rangers and shoving off very important work, Vines and Royal Antwerp were having a bat shit crazy match in which they won 2-0.

    Cole Bassett was in uniform for this morning's Feyenoord match but didn't get subbed in.
