  1. “Real Madrid and Barcelona battle for Lozano”.

    ….pay close attention YOUNG USMNT players, this is what WORLD CUP EXPOSURE does for you as a player. This gives you a pass to audition in the “big leagues” and a platform to showcase your talent on a world stage (a pass to the front of the line!!!!!! This is an opportunity this country squandered, by fielding retirees and washouts, that are either sucking or “out the door” (just a year later).

    “Our Lozano”
    Zack Steffen (23 years), Matt Miazga (23 years), Antonee Robinson (21 years), Cameron Carter-Vickers (20 years), Aaron Long (25 years, critical), Erik Palmer-Brown (21 years), Tyler Adams (19 years), Romain Gall (23 years), Jonathan Amon (19 years), Wil Trapp (25 years, critical), Julian Green (23 years, critical), Keaton Parks (21 years), Lynden Gooch (22 years), Cristian Roldan (23 years, critical), Andrija Novakovich ( 21 years), Josh Sargent (18 years)

  2. Can you imagine Pulisic and Lozano at rea Madrid? Me neither.
    One of them is tearing it up with his team and the other one most likely won’t even start for his this weekend

    • He’s not going to start because he’s injured.

      You predicted back in January that CP was about to be relegated to the bench. You were wrong. He’s survived managerial changes and competition from German national teamers, and he’s still in the starting 11 most weeks. On a Champions League team in one of the top leagues in the world.

      Your obsession with CP is a little weird, maybe you should give it a rest.
