    Looks like maybe Chanot in the training video today? If not, who is the tall guy wearing the black half top in the circle drill at 2:50?

    That makes more sense. Sounded like someone was yelling "Bruno" and it didn't quite look like Chanot, nor square with the timing of his passport tweet. Thanks!

    Yup, the guy was suspended from their match (the day of the practice) and joined up with NYC to train. NYCFC needed more bodies, and in the past they've pulled guys from local teams (see RJ Allen) to train with, so while it's not really a trial per se, they got a look at what he can do.

    They should get a look at the English central defender of theirs. He was a beast in the one USOpen Cup of theirs that I watched.

    He is everything I wanted him to be. Absolutely fantastic today against Colorado. I expect he'll be a staple of our back line for years to come.

    Agreed, played tall and strong and locked down the center in the 2nd half. He even made easier jobs for Iraola & Brillant by covering their weakside when the ball was on the right.

    Don't forget just how damn handsome he is. Not in the vid, but elsewhere and in person, he's quite the male specimen.

    Other than the attractiveness Midas noticed (and I totally agree) one other important piece: the dude can pass the ball into our midfield by passing atleast 3 or 4 deffenders every time. That's Pirlo-esque.

    1 start 1 TOTW, not going to call him the next Ciman. But he's looking like a quality defender in a league where that's at a premium.
