    USWNT @ Netherlands, 11/27

    Comment


      For which Lindsey Horan is out with the rona.

      NWSL is going to rerun the Challenge Cup next year before the regular season starts, in whatever circumstances allow. Regular season begins mid-May, 24 games, 6 teams make the playoffs, final the weekend of 11/20/21. and LA will play at LAFC's stadium when they start.

      West Ham, Fulham, and some Bundesliga are looking into Kai Wagner of Philly.

      For those who didn't see it, the children wrecked Panama the other night 6-2.

      The Fire are ditching their brand new badge, Austin brought out their jerseys today, and the plan for the playoffs is, if you get hit by an outbreak, the league will postpone if they can. If it's too bad or they can't, you forfeit.

        Utter mess at the end of the Orlando / NYC game. Keeper saves winning penalty in the shootout, VAR says he's off the line, he gets booked and that is his second yellow. Decends into farce.

          That happened to Ireland's keeper in one of the underage European finals a couple of years ago against the Netherlands. An outfield player had to go in goal for the final Dutch penalty, and I thought at the time it would never happen again. Obviously there's a second gobshite referee out there.

            You haven't seen what happens after...

              In fairness, I didn't watch the whole thing, I'll have a look now.

                  That is beyond belief. Not just the farce of the penalty shout out either but the number of people there.

                  Isn't Florida having a major second spike of C19 cases? Are there no restrictions?

                    You should watch college gridiron

                      I saw some footage of a pitch invasion at a game the other week and did want to establish how many people were watching. What's going on? Are there no restrictions on sporting events any more or does it depend on the state?

                      Comment


                        At root it depends on the state.

                        Some have indeed removed all restrictions.

                        It then depends on the club/school and in some cases the league/conference in which they play. Restrictions to 25 percent of capacity are not uncommon.

                        There have been attendances in excess of 25,000 in both Texas and Florida.

                        The pitch invasion was in Indiana, and actually included at least half of the people who were there.

                            So much for the title

                              Part of the reason Dallas were perfectly happy selling Reggie Cannon to Boavista/Lille was because they felt they had a perfectly ready to go younger player in his position, Bryan Reynolds.

                              Juve are offering $6-7M for Bryan Reynolds now.

                              4 Crew players have the rona, as does a Sounder.

                              Atlanta canned 9 players, including Andrew Carleton and Jeff Larentowicz.

                              There's an investment group looking into buying the Utah Royals and moving them to...Kansas City. really.

                              If you have the Athletic, read the story on David Villa/NYCFC.

                              One of the people up for the DCU coaching job is Jill Ellis. Megan Rapinoe's book has a lot to say about here, including the "wonderful" story of Ellis calling Rapinoe into her room the night before the 2015 WC final, playing Rapinoe a highlight reel of her mistakes, then wondering aloud in front of Rapinoe about whether she should start her in the final the next day. Other candidates include Ezra Hendricksen and Chris Armas.
