Grant Wahl's podcast has an interview with Gio Reyna. Kid sounds like he is a seasoned vet. Both in just tone of voice but clearly well media trained.

And he's still not 18! I suppose growing up with successful parents and the spotlight that comes along with that helps, but it really is amazing what he's accomplishing.

I gotta figure out which Liga MX team I’m gonna root for. Partial to UNAM right now but thinking Guadalajara or Atlas are popular in PV.

Guadalajara (or Chivas) are the Mexicans only team. No imports. Cheer for a smallish team like Toluca.

I'm too lazy to go find my pretty lengthy post-not qualifying screed, but the main thesis was "We don't have enough young, but fully professional players." We either had really green kids, or a bunch of guys moving out of their prime.

I haven't done a deep dive, but this cycle we have a lot more guys in their early to mid-20s to draw from.

Bodes well for finals though. Slog through qualifying then those guys aren't as green

one of the guys on my company team ran into him this summer at the MD Soccerplex. He got some contact info to see if he wanted to join our company team (and only half joking about referring him for an analyst role at the company).

both Barcelona (against Getafe) and Real (against freshly promoted Cadiz!) losing 1-0 on the same day, don't see that too often.

And Juventus were held 1-1 by the Croutons.

Watching a Liga MX game on the local Spanish station and was shocked to see a Trump ad. The gist of it was that Biden is extreme and a socialist and America is a hellhole that only Trump can fix. Que tranquillo!

Daryl Grove, co-host of the Total Soccer Show, has just been moved back home and will be getting hospice care. Awful, awful news. Their podcast is so great, and he's such a beacon of joy and goodness. We're losing a great one.

Damn Ajax kicked the ever living crap out of VVV. Only 2 of the 13 goals were before the red card in the 52nd minute. 45 shots of which 23 were on frame. 75 percent possession.

A 5 goal game for the sticker all from the run of play.

VVV is usually a mid table squad.
