Sometimes I get a little flack in the comments for being too negative and a lot of that is justified as I’m just a cynic by nature. But, let’s be completely honest with each other. It’s not a particularly enjoyable time to be a USMNT fan at the moment.
Very few players get meaningful minutes abroad and MLS is over. We’re basically on Christian Pulisic watch and then begging and hoping for one or two more players to do something noteworthy. Hopefully me pointing this out triggers some cosmic irony in the universe and something really good happens this weekend and makes me look foolish.
Nevertheless, here’s all the USMNT-related matches on TV this weekend as desolate as they may be:
