    That'll teach him to show up the professionals.

    Looks as though the lad is doing what Pochettino asked of him. Has gone the Sheffield Utd, got into the side and made himself key. Really pleased for him

    Better for us he's chosen to play for US. If he does well it will help grow our fan base over there.

    I was at Elland Road when Shef United beat Leeds a couple Fridays back. He (and they) looked very good. Very well organized at the back, and he (and their entire defense) looked quite comfortable on the ball.

    It was an impressive performance all around ... CCV and Sheffield United.

    Don't think it will help grow it any larger than it already is, to be honest. Plus most Americans (myself included) are pretty fucking upset at the failure to qualify for the World Cup and couldn't care less about the upcoming matches.

    CCV is going to be around for much more than those two matches. if he does well for Spurs and the USA in the future surely it well help us.

    Happy for him, their was a video of their manager on deadline day trying to bring in a few players and he said on the phone to I think Clayton Donaldson 'we play like Spurs' which is good for us our coaches and his development, him doing so well if they get promoted maybe we can send a few other youngsters on loan their

    Yeah, they were really impressive. Had the Leeds match finished 4 or 5-1, it wouldn't have flattered them. everyone in the side looked comfortable on the ball, taking on defenders, stroking it around. Their movement off the ball was excellent, and they - to a man - put in a shift. They pressed well and were first to every loose ball.

    I'd spent most of the Fall thinking it's just a matter of time before reality sets in ... but they're where they are on merit, and I suspect they'll go up. I went with a mate who's Wednesday, and you could sense his depression with the whole thing.

    I'd not heard that 'we play like Spurs' bit ... but there's something to it.

    As an American, while I am upset we didn't qualify, I have been waiting 6 years for us to finally turn over the squad and look forward to watching some of these younger kids play. US Soccer changed its development strategies roughly 10 years ago and the kids that are 18/19 are the first ones coming through that have really benefited from the changes. I think we will start to see a much steadier string of talent coming from youth ranks and I am looking forward to see CCV get in the mix with this group.

    I was hoping we would have kept Wimmer, Sanchez and CCV could have been an excellent future back 3. But watching Sanchez you can see what a difference having a full European season under your belt does hopefully CCV will really develop this season along with Josh

    There is a lot that still needs to change, but compared to when my kids who were both Academy / College players came through, a lot has already changed. When my older son, now 27, was 11 years old they were already playing on a 100 yard + field, eleven v eleven. The teams that had a really fast defender and a really fast forward won more often than not and the kids were not learning how to really play. The emphasis switched a few years later to small sided games, lots of touches, etc.

    As a youth referee, I notice an incremental change in the skills, athletic ability and tactics of the top teams about every 5 years. The US can still do a much better job of incorporating all players regardless of economic status, but the development cycles for the players is way better than it used to be and Tyler Adams, Weston McKinnie and Josh Sargent are examples of that, not to mention Pulisic.

    Looks a different player in that clip to the one I saw getting bullied against Wycombe last season.
    He's obviously benefiting from the run of games he's getting in a tough league for Sheffield whilst their benefiting from a footballing defender.
    And the time-frame in which he has improved suggests he's being working hard, something that won't be lost on Pochettino.

    I’m not surprised he was bullied, do you realise who their striker is? May not be anything special as a footballer but he’s pretty unique.

    I don’t think a teenager making his debut getting bullied by akinfenwa is anything to worry about
