Yep, worth the slow games this week for the perfect final matchup. And Mbappe will be worth every penny of that fee because at age 18, he will play a bunch of great years and then get sold again, probably for equal fee or even a profit. Some team will be very very happy.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

So Donnarumma (18 year old goalie) says he's not gonna renew his contract with AC Milan and not even ten minutes later his whole social media is spammed with god knows what those lunatic Italians are saying. hilarious

I'm hearing that Wayne Rooney may go to my Everton Blues. That seems like a pretty good thing, no?

Yeah, England dropped him for their last qualifiers, IIRC. I mean, still good and wouldn't hurt the Toffees, but not the force he was 3 or 4 years back.

Apparently they're using him as bait to steal Lukaku. That I do not like.

I guess we're not going to the World Cup next year, huh. I think this pretty much sums it up.

Taylor Twellman's commentary was pretty spot on as well. ONTB, thoughts?

I agree with both those statements.


Haha jesus this is pitiful. This makes the Kobe/Dwight/Nash team look successful.

I personally enjoy the "pay to play soccer is killing soccer in this country!" argument.

On face, yeah, that's right. If you want to get the best talent playing at the highest level, you shouldn't make access to coaching contingent on a $3-5K per year youth club soccer team (which is approximately what the coaching and training fee is for the main club in my town, which is where curds 1 and 3 want to play) fees before you even start traveling to tournaments and summer skills camp and shit. That's a grift, not a development program. You shouldn't limit access to basically rich kids and physically dominant charity cases. That's not a winner.

Pro teams in the USL and the NASL and the MLS ought to be funding youth academies, as should US Soccer, but those organizations have zero incentive to develop their own talent and parents have this ridiculous connection between playing sports and earning a college scholarship. Folks, there aren't college scholarships for soccer. Not that are worth anything.

But every other sport in this country is like that, specifically baseball. Jesus Christ baseball is expensive. They do just fine.


I have no point.
