    Especially at CB where youthful mistakes get punished.

    Maturity, experience, positioning, strength all develop over time. The kid doesn't need to be the fastest player out there, he just needs to be quick enough to get to the ball first. Being in the right starting position is huge for central defenders and I wonder if with age and experience he figured out where he needs to be on the field to be most effective as a defender.

    I saw this elsewhere, and thought it was a waste of time, because Alvarado is in his early 30s in my head.

    Imagine my surprise when I learned that he's still only 27, a whopping two months older than Aaron Long.

    Liga MX cancelled the remaining 2020 Clausura on Friday.

    Alvarado picked up 2 yellow cards in 450 minutes (5 starts). Necaxa were in 14th at the time of the season's cancellation.

    Alvarado's contract ends this December 2020. Wonder if he'll transfer to MLS before next season starts in August/September.

    It appears Alvarado is headed to Monterrey but there is one report that Portland is trying to swoop in at the last moment and sign him.

    Monterey would be a pretty high-profile move,

    Assuming he can get playing time, I think that's a better option than Portland unless the Timbers are throwing serious coin at him or he just wants to live in the US for awhile.

    I would also think playing for Monterey would make it tougher for Berhalter to ignore him, assuming the #USMNT ever plays a game in the next few months.

    Goes 45 in a 2-0 win. Game was 1-0 at HT.

    His first minutes since Feb. 23, per Transfermarkt.

    That's a weird sub. Is he hurt?

    He was actually scratched right before kickoff and DNP (or dress).

    Sounds like a lingering niggle from the game he was substituted out after 33'?
