    Anyone catch any of Juventus-Spurs? If so, how did Carter-Vickers and Yedlin look?

      I only saw the highlights, but the first Juve goal was not his fault. On the second his partner got caught with the ball and stolen from him. CCV had a chance to stop the 2 v 1 and got unlucky with his slide tackle. Got the ball nicely, but it hit the knee of the offensive player and rebounded straight back in the attackers path for a simple 2 v 0 goal.

        Yedlin played left back? Has Pochettino lost his mind, since Yedlin has played LB coming up this will cause DeAndre such mental strife he will probably not be able handle remembering whether to connect simple back passes to his teammates or to the other team. What is this two-bit YMCA U9 coach thinking?

        On the other hand if DeAndre can play left back who do we put at RB thus freeing FJ to play forward?
