Happy Wednesday folks. It’s Devil’s Night in America, which is something you only know if you’re from Detroit like me. You may know it as Hallow’s Eve, but in any case, here’s the news:
In a riveting interview, Luciano Acosta discusses his impending departure from D.C. United and some of the things that have made it a bittersweet exit. BRU also has info on Lucho’s time with the team.
One of the biggest fan favorites is calling it a career, as Chris Pontius announced his retirement:
Big salute, CP13. Thanks for being one of the best people in this league, and congrats on a wonderful career.
The Washington Spirit has some admirers for Halloween:
Best Halloween costumes ever? We love this family dressing up as Rose, Andi, Mal, and Coach Richie. They'll probably get extra candy from fellow Spirit fans as well.— Washington Spirit (@WashSpirit) October 29, 2019
Are you wearing a Spirit Halloween costume this year? Send us a photo and we'll make sure to retweet! pic.twitter.com/vrqpTzYnWN
Looks pretty spot on to me!
Is there a Zlatan Ibrahimovic return to La Liga? Remains to be seen...and who would it be with?
After throwing up Nazi salutes and other racist crap during their match against England, Bulgaria has to play the next two home matches behind closed doors. They should be docked points too.
U.S. Soccer apparently wants information on where all the United States Women’s National Team got their income for the last 5.5 years. Umm, yeah...that’s crazy.
Gareth Bale could be looking for a new club in January, as he reportedly reaffirmed his desire to exit Real Madrid.
Speaking of exits...wishing nothing but the best for Jalen Robinson and hope he latches on somewhere:
Wow and just like that year 6 is finished and unfortunately, so is my time at DC! Thank you to the coaches, my teammates, the medical staff, and everyone else that helped me grow along the way! Best of luck to… https://t.co/1pBIavZLtX— Jalen Robinson (@JayyBird15) October 29, 2019
Also, Andy Najar could be done at Anderlecht:
Now comes a report that Barnsley FC, who is looking for a new head coach, has the D.C. United coach as a strong possible candidate. But wait, that would mean Ben Olsen is a candidate to be the head coach at Barnsley.
Ben Olsen is an apparent candidate to take over at Barnsley.
Ben Olsen. Candidate. Head Coach. Barnsley.
The USMNT desperately need a win against Canada to have any chance of making the CONCACAF Nations League playoffs. They need to get the fanbase back on track. So, head coach Gregg Berhalter put out a video statement to the U.S. Soccer Supporters Club membership, now known as the Insiders program.
That’s it. Game 7 tonight...let’s go Washington Nationals. FINISH THE FIGHT!
