I didn’t watch any of the Youth WC games but I did see some people bashing him on twitter.
I thought he did well but was far from a dominating and clean defender. He's quite young though, and coming back from a season long surgery recovery. I wouldn't start him but as a backup to rest tinnerholm and some usoc time, sure. He needs time to improve.

if it was dome id agree, but if its not him then i dont know where the kid stands in the depth chart.
this is a good point. Dome was high on playing the kids when they were ready. If we do get GvB, then I think he'd probably play Scally and Haak considering the dutch league clubs do play a lot of youth, especially their own academy players.

The plan for THIS season before the injury was to give Scally minutes. That was done at an organizational level and not a Dome level.
As long as he’s healthy and hasn’t taken a step back, I assume
It will be the plan for 2020 as well.

mgarbowski mgarbowski I figured there would need to be a portfolio of MLS games before a transfer deal like this would be made.

Great for the Club. We dont give enough credit to the great job the Club has done with the Academy. back-to-back U19 titles with rosters full of younger players. Clear pathway now for kids who want to play in MLS and Europe.

As the 1st and probably only member of the Scallywags, I'm happy for Joe. We've now had one player go to Dortmund for free and another to Monchengladbach for mucho bucks so this shows guys that if you join our academy and you have the talent and you work hard, you can go to Europe.
In a perfect world, he'd stay here and be vice Captain but being a selling club is part of our evolution in attracting youth talent.

Here is the club announcement. Did anyone see this coming, now?


I kind of assumed his injury would have delayed anything like this until he played some club games again.
more minutes maybe in first team. number two RB or even plug in to fill any other backline hole.

that sell on clause and bonuses is something i like in the deal. which honestly is crazy for someone that has yet to even debut on first team.

Edit: in league play, forgot he played in that terrible 4-0 open cup loss.
