Wait.... all I've ever seen on Gio's injury was "calf strain" but this article says it's a "fracture". Can anyone clarify???
Same here. This is all news to me. He's an enigma. Everything about him is speculative.

  • Group A: Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Copenhagen and Galatasaray.
  • Group B: Sevilla, Arsenal, PSV Eindhoven and Lens.
  • Group C: Napoli, Real Madrid, SC Braga and Union Berlin.
  • Group D: Benfica, Inter, Red Bull Salzburg and Real Sociedad.
  • Group E: Feyenoord, Atletico Madrid, Lazio and Celtic.
  • Group F: Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, Milan and Newcastle United.
  • Group G: Manchester City, RB Leipzig, Red Star Belgrade and Young Boys.
  • Group H: Barcelona, Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk and Antwerp.
City and Barca got relatively straight forward draws. Group F, though... yikes. Looks like a scrap for all four clubs.

Yeah, Milan just got a fist to the face with that group.

Groups D and E are the opposite of F. Anyone can win those.

Just saw that Gio is finally back training with Dortmund. At long last. Hopefully he can get right and stay right.

Pretty remarkable that we can read an article like this and not see his name on it. It's been a steep and rapid decline for him.

This is encouraging from Berhalter. I mentioned a while back the idea of a 3 man back line to maximize the talent in the player pool at midfield. If he's genuinely considering it I think we'd benefit from it.

He's strongly considering it but only so he can get Arriola, Lletget, Roldan, and Zardes on the field together.

Ha! I'm also encouraged that none of those names you mentioned are in the camp this window.

If he's got a healthy Adams I think playing 2 center backs is a wasted body in the back line. Anxious to see if he tries it this soon.

Interested in the friendly tomorrow. I like the starting 11. I think de la Torre in the #6 spot for Adams is a good fit. Would also be fine with Musah there and LdlT more advanced.
