    He needs to reach the first team in my opinion to see the NT aside from a camp cupcake type of window.

    If I remember correctly he was training with the first team and got in a game or two before he got hurt.

    Feel like I'm late to the party.

    Happy National Microwave Oven Day, everybody!

    Edit: Oh, and welcome back, Richy!

    Welcome back son! I watched almost every minute of his first team minutes. He was slowly growing into the team each appearance. It was very positive, then the injury. It seems like such a long time ago. Best of luck and a guy who can contribute IMO.

  6. Richard Ledezma is after a year without football for theis moment the happiest PSV'er: It was a long journey.

    Richard Ledezma is na een jaar zonder voetbal even de gelukkigste PSV'er: ‘Het was een lange reis’

    Een afgescheurde kruisband belette Richard Ledezma een jaar lang om wedstrijden te spelen, maar hij is weer in competitie. Maandagavond verloor hij met Jong PSV van De Graafschap, maar voor de Amerikaan is de kop er weer af.

    If there are any rehab/physios/orthopedic docs out there, is there any work out there showing how to prevent or manage the imbalances that happen from use of one leg over the other for as long as athletes take to recover? Do they prioritize that specifically? Guys like Jordan Morris come to mind when you think about a guy who injures one knee and then comes back healthy and then injures the other. Is that just thought to be related to the fact that if you have one ligament tear, you are more likely to do the other?

    He's only appeared in a friendly so he could still do a one time switch

    Wow... Fantastic news! Gets a single game back with Jong and is now back with the senior team. I really hope he gets a cameo.

    Unlikely I'm afraid. PSV are only 2 points ahead of Sociedad and they're both fighting for the second place. He'll only get a cameo if there's 3 goals in it.

    Garbage minutes? Sure, but not a cameo

    There were three goals in it, but not until really late. No Ledezma appearance.

    I'm not a doctor, but I had knee surgery when I was ~15 years old after hyper extending my knee on a full sprint down the field that resulted in just about everything being torn. The hardest part for me coming back was by far the psychological challenge. It took me a long time to get over the 'what ifs' of playing soccer and potentially injuring my knee. If you've never had a serious injury before, it really makes you realize that you aren't invincible.

    I came to realize that putting the work into rehab and finding a workout routine that personally fits you goes a long way in easing the psychological challenge of returning. Richie is a fantastic player who reads the game well and can control the tempo of a game. We don't have anyone in the current player pool and arguably ever that has the ability to affect the game's tempo at the highest levels. He has the potential to be that player and can really take the the USMNT (or any club team) to the highest levels of attacking play. I'm rooting for him--it takes time, but eventually he'll get to where he needs to be.

    It's an Eredivisie game, so I'd expect him to at least get a few minutes.

    Huge comeback win with 80th and 90th minute goals, but no Ledezma. Big day for PSV, though.
