The SBI Show: Episode 318 (Talking American transfers, MLS moves, and more)


It is shaping up to be a very busy August on the transfer move front for Americans in Europe, and Americans trying to go to Europe, and The SBI Show breaks down the latest deals, and the players who should be eyeing transfers in the future.

Episode 318 of The SBI Show breaks down the recent transfers of Gianluca Busio and Sam Vines, while also discussing the need for moves by American defenders Chris Richards, Matt Miazga, Erik Palmer-Brown and Cameron Carter-Vickers.

Host Ives Galarcep also discusses Josh Sargent’s potential move to Norwich City, and where he stands in the USMNT striker pecking order.

Another subject touched on is the Olympics, and the possibility that missing out on the Olympics may have helped the USMNT win the Gold Cup.

Lastly, Ives closes the show discussing the recent flurry of MLS transactions, trades and transfers, while also giving you his picks for the best bets to make on this weekend’s MLS schedule.

  1. Weird to see Busio get some hate by USMNT fans. I thought he was pretty solid at the Gold Cup. I think people expected too much from him. Agree, about Canada, they have some sick talent on the attacking front. Costa Rica going to struggle in this cycle as they are still depended on the older players.People act like Sargent had a bad season last season and he had 7 goals, thats a real good season.

  2. The strategy for qualifying with three games in windows will be pretty interesting. I ca see US using A team in first two games as you suggested or gambling that Canada will rest players in 2nd game. All the teams will be in the same boat as US so will Canada play A team at home and B team on road at US for first window? Will teams concede a loss to Mexico (and maybe US) in order to field A team in other two games? I think it would be very difficult to play all three qualifiers in a window for anyone unless club teams rest them before and after the window. Don’t think any club would be happy about that.
