San Antonio has previously hosted Mexico games, but with them as a co-host this time, it was pointless even bidding. Also there are now three MLS teams in Texas, and we ain't one of them.
Isn't it all NFL stadiums though in the US? Houston is in. Lot of stretches though Dallas, Boston, New York, San Francisco, there may be others aren't in those cities despite the announcement. Makes it more of a treck for fans than a European WC

NFL stadia know how to manage big games and crowds, so it makes sense to use them. SA has a stadium built several years ago in the hope of attracting a team - unsuccessfully of course - I think it can still hold 60,000+ but needs a lot of work and is no longer good enough. It was used for a "friendly" between Mexico and Argentina about 3 years ago.

A rare road point for Charlotte that should have been 3; 1-1 draw at Columbus but the Crew’s goal was off an absolutely shocking mistake from Kahlina that you wouldn’t accept from a semi-pro.

We now have taken 2 out of 24 points from road trips this season. 😱

He must know things are going to go roughly for him in the case then. His lawyer has probably told him to expect a guilty verdict.

Yep, he'd be cleared by the end of August before the national team will meet again so his distraction argument doesn't really hold much water

I expect enough will come out at trial whether guilty or not to put him in an untenable position.

Derby look like they have a buyer.


Will they still face a points deduction if the takeover isn't completed by the start of the season?

I think it depends on the terms of the deal which is all football creditors paid in full and others 25p in the £. Ashley didn't want to pay that which is why if his offer had gone through it would have been -15 points.

I may be wrong, but as long as the terms are in place I don't think that is an automatic pre season deduction even if the deal isn't finalised, but as we know with the EFL their rules are fluid

Impossible, surely?

England’s women, who have a Dutch coach and are wearing a kit that looks like something the Dutch should be wearing are beating the Netherlands (wearing white and who have an English coach) 4-1 in a Euro’s build up friendly.
