Diploma Divide

Hey y'all, checking in with another piece bringing some soccer issues to a general audience light. This time it's college soccer training limitations and reform. I know you know enough to get the gist of it, but I did have Andrew Wenger and Jordan Morris among others weigh in – figured you'd want their $.02.

Note: I fully understand that it's not a matter of choosing between college and a soccer career.

Who next?

Today at MLSS, I unfurled a healthy list of dual-nationals playing in Europe that could become Klinsi's next crossover hit(s). Check it.

DJ Kool Herc 1, Ronaldinho 0

While the former Brazil star was busy missing a penalty on his debut for the home side, Herculez Gomez bagged a beauty for the only goal of the game.

You don't put Jules in a corner.

Samuel L. Jackson attended the Arsenal v Man City tilt this past weekend, where the home teams media crew tried in vain to get the Liverpool supporter to pledge Gooner allegiance. Not gonna happen, bub.

Wake up, sleepyheads! Fresh Birmingham loan catch Brek Shea starts on his debut, kickoff comes in about 35 minutes on beIN Sport. They are hosting a Leeds club that has been pretty bad away this season (eight goals conceded in three games), so this could be interesting.




UPDATE: On 37 minutes, Shea has notched a brilliant assist on the Wes Thomas opener. Great pass.

American Soccer theorists, your day has finally come.

Remember when everyone and their mothers would put together a what-if American XI featuring supreme athletic talents from other sports? What if Kobe Bryant was a winger? What if Reggie Wayne was a left back and Chris Chelios a defensive midfielder???

Well... here is one to watch in testing that theory to a certain extent.
