Hi there, so it’s first day at a new school for the oldest, so I’m a little distracted!
D.C. United outclassed by Mexico’s Pumas to end Leagues Cup group stage (WaPo): Eh, OK I guess? I laugh that they have to go up to Chester now after this half-arsed attempt.
Spirit prevails, 4-2, in comeback victory versus Gotham FC (Spirit): Good for them to right the ship.
D.C. United Announce the Permanent Transfer of Victor Palsson to K.A.S. Eupen (DC): The thing I don’t get about this is that he said getting closer to his wife (who was in Canada) was a reason for him coming back to MLS. So either things have soured with DC which is very possible or well…yeah! He started and played center back for the Pandas in their 2-2 draw with Griffin Yow’s Westerlo.
Julian Gressel drops by (Soccer Speakeasy): Happy for Juls to return to the Eastern Conference and pla for the Columbus Crew, dread he has a chip on his shoulder about his departure from same last year, but also tells me DC’s well-poisoning on this from the standpoint on how players in the league talk amongst each other, and it’s not promising!
A poignant note for a Loudoun player:
Then this bit of goodness:
Finally the trailer for the third and final season of HBO’s How to with John Wilson is out, with the first episode premiering Friday. I’ve adored this show and continue to do so, being blown away by how things unspool themselves in a half hour.
