1.) Sarge with a brace coming back from injury in a friendly v. Hanover
2.) Gio Reyna promoted to the 1st team after a strong training camp (including a goal v. Feyenoor in a friendly)
3.) What is the US spending money on if they have both Stewart and now new GM McBride above the head coach. And while that may work with Gregg...would a top international let that org structure exist.

Antonee Robinson's BIG $ transfer to AC Milan fell through after medical needed more tests. Some thought it was a bad deal as he would have been buried on the bench.

So Konrad de la Fuente is an 18-year old US youth international who has been with Barcelona for sometime was offered a new contract and told sign this or you will be on the bench until your contract runs out (he was flirting with Dortmund). Well looks like he is back in good graces. Pulled up from the U-19 to the Barcelona Bs on Monday. Comes in off the bench and scores the extra time winner and then later in the same day was training with the first team.

No Bueno. If I am Gregg and the gang, he is on the Roster for the Dutch and Wales in March and lock him with at minimum an appearance during the Nations League.

With Paul A out for a year with an ACL Gio has a spot. Herc Gomez was pretty clear on his thoughts this weekend. Get him on the field with the big boys now.

If they drag their feet on this and lose him that would...well, that would par for their course.

Is that basically every American below 30 playing in MLS? I mean, it's great to see 4 guys from RSL on the list, but I don't know that I would put any of them - except maybe Justen Glad - as international caliber.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

Teams won't release folks for the Olympic Qualifiers. If you look at the young Americans they will get March action with the full MNT against Wales and the Dutch. Gregg said Gio will get a call up for that. So you have Adams, Sarge, Dest, Adams, Weston, Holmes who won't go.

So Eric Lichaj, Hull's captain, did not get an extension agreement and won't finish the season. Seems like he was a big fan favorite. He is moving on. Strange he did not come up with a deal to finish the year. Maybe both sides playing hardball or Lichaj has suitors from another league...but does that mean he is trying to get to the MLS before the worst name tournament starts?

United States youth international Konrad de la Fuente has signed a new contract with Barcelona until 2022. US Youth National Teamer has a €50 million release clause that will rise to €100m if he is promoted to the first team before the expiration of the deal. Hertha Berlin wanted him. He will play on Barca B (for whom he has already scored a few goals) and has gotten training with Messi and the big boys.
