jonny ball This was a good, good group. Sargent, amon, adams and taiatgue(injured..was gonna get promoted at schalke b4 the injury) were eligible to play for this u20 team....so U know this was a deep and talented group...They played some quality sawker.

All could make....Its an exciting group, man. I am a big of mendez..dude can be a special talent.


Tim Weah

Club Situation: It looks like he's about to be sold for somewhere around $10 million to Lille, one of the better teams in Ligue 1 (they finished 2nd this past year). That's a lot of money for Lille, which they wouldn't be spending on him if they didn't intend to play him a lot of minutes immediately.

It's a best-case scenario situation as far as I'm concerned. I don't think Weah was ever going to be good enough to break into the PSG lineup, but this still shows that he's an elite prospect.

• How soon can he help the USMNT? He'd be a starter – or at least the top attacking sub – at this current Gold Cup if he'd chosen to play there instead of with the U-20s. I think by 2022 he's starting on one wing and Christian Pulisic is on the other.

Paxton Pomykal
He's been the revelation of 2019 for both club and country. Pomykal's almost always looked a cut above his central midfield peers in age-group play, but struggled to translate that to MLS in his limited run under Oscar Pareja. This year, under Luchi Gonzalez, he's looked like a teenaged version of Nicolas Lodeiro.

He doesn't hit as good a final ball as Lodeiro but his field coverage and defensive presence are even better, and he tormented every opposing midfielder he went up against in this tournament:

Richie Ledezma
He came out of nowhere 18 months ago, pushed into the Real Monarchs squad and was so good as a true, modern, mobile No. 10 that PSV came in and offered him a bag. Like, a real bag – somewhere around $225,000 per year, a number that will rise to over $400,000 per year if he makes the first team this season. They scouted him right out of the USL Championship (which should give you an idea of the volume and type of people watching USL games).

That's the way they do things in the Eredivisie. They make sure that if you're going to spend a roster slot on an import, that you have to believe the guy is so good that he'll be a star, and thus they get paid like stars. You can't sign a young import on the cheap.

Chris Richards
Bayern Munich paid seven figures for him before he'd played a single professional game, and I think he's the best center back prospect I've seen the US produce. His ability to just end dudes in the open field is unreal:

jonny ball Richards, weah, Ledzema and Llanez are my guys to be as good as pulisic, adams and mckennie?

Dest, Araujo and Soto have very good potential , too

Mendez, showed great moments. he wasnt !00% fit. I still believe he can be very good talent

Gloster can be a good pro

I think wicky will become the next u20 head coach for the USA. The next cycle is a good one too....with reyna, busio, moses, scally , Las, ect.



June 8th, 2019 21:13
jonny ball this was the best USA team ever...They played soccer, man. They were technical and had possession in almost every game I wasnt surprised at all.

So many good players that should have US fans excited abt.

Can't wait to see Richards,Weah, Llanez , Ledzema, Reyna, mendez, Dest, Gloster, Soto, and Pomykal with the senior team.






Oh, the depth n talent
June 8th, 2019 20:14
jonny ball weah had a great tourney(2 goals n 2 assists) and played some D too. Now I like him more. Very promising player.

Pax didnt have much left in the tank. He can be a good 2 way player.

Richards is a damn good prospect. I think he can make it at bayern.

Dest was playing a lot better. He can bring the ball up the field and his D was getting better

Soto was good, too. He needs to bulk up a bit. he had 4 goals and was a menace up top.

Llanez goes butt wild. He was good every time he had the ball.

Mendez has a magical foot.hes good on the ball.. he needs to get stronger and is conditioning is not good yet.....ledezma , too

Durkin, Keita, scott...maybe konrad, wont make it.





June 8th, 2019 18:24
jonny ball we played well enuff to win it. theres nothing to be ashamed abt cuz da USA played sawker v some top youth teams.this team has quality, no doubt!

brb, I need to go to home depot
June 8th, 2019 17:21
jonny ball great showing...u can see the talent. we played sawker against the commenbol champs but equadir can shoot bombs

2-1....equador. Their goal was prolly offisides?

But i am proud of this team...USA actually played soccer

weah n soto are good.

Konrad is killing our attacks but whats new there

hopefully llanez and ledzema come in da 2nd half. Dest, durkin , weah , gloster and soto were good. pax was not...mendez had his moments but itnt enuff...he needs to do more
June 8th, 2019 17:09
jonny ball damn soto almost scored...we are playing our game now
June 8th, 2019 17:08
jonny ball yes...weah! 1-1....we are playing well but konrad needs to be subbed out...put in llanez n we can win this!
June 8th, 2019 15:58
jonny ball

durkin and konrad better play up to their potential....at least we have some good ass subs: Llanez,ledzema and rennick
June 8th, 2019 15:53
jonny ball


true...konrad it is!
June 8th, 2019 15:50
jonny ball ramos is a stubborn mule...Konrad isnt really producing. I would put Llanez or ledzema on the right side. Anyway, is konrad due to have a break out game???

Scott is crap, its a good thing ochoa is our keeper in this game!

June 7th, 2019 18:07
jonny ball Da US is the only country to reach the quarters final at da last 3 U-20 worldcups.

We can make history tomorrow if we can make it to da semis

Ramos has changed the program around. Hes been great for us.

this team has played some good soccer. Good build ups and all. Some quality players. This is def one of the most exciting USA teams ever?(youth or Sr). We outplayed ukraine n nigeria. Took it to france in the 2nd half and played some good ass ball v quater(esp in the 2nd half)

all in all....this team has lived up to the hype. Now lets hope some of these players make it:nervous:
June 7th, 2019 14:43
jonny ball another big game for the USA tomorrow....they will take on the mighty Equador, da conmebol champs

Da Concacaf u20 champs, USA


Da conmebol Champs, Equador

We can win it all! this is the time to do it..lets do this


off topic

lol, hes enjoying life...hes not even real madrid quality, lucky bastard!

this is funny

June 5th, 2019 22:34
jonny ball we face equador on sat...another tough team. They are commebol champs and we are concacaf u20 champs

ledzema can be a special talent.




abt right....durkin can be good. I hope he plays well on sat. Llanez should be playing over konrad.


soto doenst want to extend his contract with hannover. Dortmund are abt to pounce on him!


June 5th, 2019 02:27
jonny ball i finished watching Da game...good game. That was great team work with some skills. Looked like da old USA team but with skillz. Good 2nd half

Dest and richard were very good. Goster has been freaking good.

Ledezma was good.

Soto is a natural scorer.

Konrad isnt doing for me. Hes not ready to play v young men. I hope ramos plays Llanez over him v equador

weah is still a tweaner but he does have a good end product.


mendez is back v equador...hells ya!
June 4th, 2019 23:59
jonny ball https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/...ats-good-thing

good podcast

2 best US players are richards and pomkal? I agree.....

Ledzema could end being the best US talent from this USA side? Maybe, Hes a great talent! I hope he does it!

Llanez beat up france when he came on? Well, i will see but i wont be surprised. He is an upgrade over konrad. Hes been a great super sub!
June 4th, 2019 23:49
jonny ball Richards has been massive. Dest finally had a great game. Weah can be a good player....Dude has that swag n talent. Soto can score goals, thats his talent. he could be heading to dortmund! abt to watch da replay!





June 4th, 2019 22:24
jonny ball i mean we took on nigeria, france , ukraine....another tough team, whats new. Dont ppl realize we r one og the best attacking teams in this tourney

Llanez is a bad man! n so is ledzema! hope they start v equador...thhey have been great subs tho!
