  1. What about Jose Gallegos? for Sonderjyske? (Another Mexican-American, transfer from the USL). He scored a couple weeks ago, I didn’t see it on the American Abroad section. He’s talented!! Llanez on the left, and Joe on the right would be my starting winger’s w/ Pepi at the 9, if we qualify for the Olympics.

    • Jose was one of my favorite watches in USL. Definitely a guy whose hype was hampered by Covid canceling the last U20 WC. Sonderjyske is going down though not sure what that does for him. From trailing with Bayern to Dutch 2nd division his trajectory not going in the right direction right now.
