Hi there, so the lineup shuffling continues for your link posters. I was (well, am) at Ocean City this weekend with my older son while my wife and younger son were home sick. We were meeting up with my brother/my son’s Uncle to enjoy each other’s company for the first time in awhile. More than that, we finally had the chance to scatter the ashes of our father on what would have been his 80th birthday (ultimately one of the many lives lost to Covid).

Jermaine Fordah: Globetrotter, Dreamchaser & Pioneer Mega-Commuter (US Soccer): Jermaine was Loudoun’s goalkeeper last year and he found a new club in the USL League Two, and this is a nice origin story.

The Twenty-Seven: Top-ten Detroit, your mailbag, and Team of the (Early) Season (USL Tactics): I’ll link to John and damn near anyone who burns some calories on Loudoun, and a couple of players there get much-deserved praise, despite what the last three weeks have been.

Finally I’m not sure what the third season of Barry brings, but give me a good handful of it:
