Good morning! I’m here on a Wednesday because Donald is hopefully willing the USMNT to victory tonight. Speaking of the USMNT...
Weston McKennie was apparently dismissed from the USMNT camp for two violations of the Covid protocols, including bringing an “unauthorized person” into the bubble. There are team rules before games in every professional sport, and violating team rules usually ends up with a punishment. Hopefully McKennie will be back in the team soon and hopefully the team can get itself together and get three points.
Speaking of Honduras, Donald has everything that you need to be ready for tonight’s game.
A middling MLS coach is being linked to the Premier League because this is how things apparently work. I mean, I guess you’ve got to have new fodder for the PL to chew through.
A power struggle in the ownership group is not a place I’d want to step into, but Ben Olsen is bringing his characteristic honesty to the interview.
Similar situation for Roddar, who has 2 Sweden games (both World Cup qualifiers) in this window. https://t.co/EkdZqVL9sv— Jason Anderson (@JasonDCsoccer) September 7, 2021
Two players from the Washington Spirit will be going to World Cup Qualifiers this month, but hopefully will not miss any games. Unless, you know, the match that was delayed because of Covid is rescheduled.
#DCU has announced a COVID-19 vaccination policy internally for its employees, I'm told.— Pablo Iglesias Maurer (@MLSist) September 7, 2021
All staff (front office and technical) must be fully vaccinated no later than October 18th. The policy applies to all full-time, part-time, seasonal and game day employees.
And finally, speaking of Covid, D.C. United will mandate the vaccine for all employees. Good!
That’s all I have, what’s up?
