    Yes that seems right. I guess that’s supposed to make it more exciting for us.

    Fifth page find. Any time line on this guy's return? Incredible how spoiled we are to have 5 or 6 pages of what would have been relevant players a few years ago.

    Has he really done enough to be included in the running for this?

    You are the gold standard (of award familiarity), yet it would seem impolite for Reyna to turn this one down. Better to accept graciously, having practiced a 30-second elevator-ride response to the inevitable 'WTF is the Kopa Award?' inquiries.

    random rumors that Juve is coming for Gio. No idea if they have any basis.

    I saw a retweet from SBI, only place I have seen it. None of the account aggregators from Juve's side seemed to pick it up.

    Yeah, I've not seen anything that makes it seem serious either. Fun while it lasted... for 4 minutes...

    For S's and G's since no one is commenting in here. I will try and imagine what it would look like if he was to be on the team currently.

    Current formation/tactics 4-4-2ish
    SirChesny
    Danilo-Bonucci-De Ligt-Alex Sandro
    ---------Bentancur-Locatelli
    -------------------------------Rabiot
    Chiesa
    -----------Dybala---Morata

    With Gio? 4-2-3-1
    SirChesny
    Danilo---Bonucci-De Ligt---Alex Sandro
    ------------RCM-Locatelli
    Cuadrado-------------------Chiesa
    ------------------Gio
    -----------------Morata

    Depends on whether Dybala is re-signed. I don't think Juve would spend the money (whether they have it or not) for someone to back-up Dybala and Juve have Kulusevski who they just paid a good 40m+ for. If they can't re-sign Dybala, maybe it makes sense?

    I would love to have him on the squad, I think he would be great at linking the midfield to forwards and something Juve desperately needs (IMO). I just don't see Reyna going anywhere except the PL (unfortunately), He would be a solid replacement for Isco/Asensio at Real!

    I have this completely baseless theory, born of years of reading bad novels and watching soap operas stoned, that he will go to Spain to redeem his dad's mistake choice of UVA/Germany over Barca.

    You read it here first!

    Barca can't afford him. Let that sink in.

    I am unmoved by facts or reality.

    This is a personal quest to right a generational wrong.

    What tf happened, exactly? He's been out months. I really hope this isn't one of those cases of "player had x injury, and x injury was actually y, or got y injury either through mis- or under-diagnosis of x (or from bad luck) but we never actually told anyone about y". We've had a few of those over the years.

    2-3 weeks barely gives him a chance to get in the BvB line-up before next international window.

    I thought it's been ~1 month. Hamstring usually takes 4 weeks to heal. If you try to come back earlier, it usually recurs.

    The US, El Salvador game was September 2. That was when the tweaking of the hamstring occurred. I don't remember if I read when it happened during the game, i.e. did he play on it a while?. He wasn't subbed off if I remember correctly.

    What a shitty injury. This will completely throw off his club situation, and I doubt we see him in the US squad in Nov.

    What a bummer. I hope the "sources" are wrong... and the initial reports in Germany saying he would be back soon are correct. But he is a Yank... so I have to assume the worst when it comes to injuries.

    If it really is a 2-3 week return then I don't see him playing in the next qualifying window... and that hurts. We need him more than CP IMO.

    When Pulisic is out we get Arriola. So it's pretty clear who we most need to be available in November.

    GB plays Gio at RW most of the time... I see CP's backup as Aaronson. All that being said... I would prefer that GB play Gio at the 8 or 10.
