Could this really happen?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Seems like a stretch. Is The Sun reputable?

Not really reputable, no.

But if he is signed by City, he'd be No. 3 at best and a long-term signing a la Miazga, and even less likely to break into the first team given what they paid for Ederson and how good he is.

I'm not an expert on British media but I had a feeling this was the answer.

Yeah a price tag of 7-10 million... Man City is paying a heavy premium to try and get in on marketing to USMNT fans.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

BeIN The Xtra just discussed this, naming Berhalter as the source.

Good luck to him. No brainer to get paid even if he's never realistically going to play for City. Expensive long-term insurance policy for them if he improves drastically and Ederson gets hurt or sucks all of a sudden.

 

Courtois spent two years on loan before securing a spot at Chelsea when Cech got old. Ederson is only a year older and Steffen is far from being as good as Courtois, so hardly the exact same situation, but there is precedent.

Gave up a really bad goal to DC in the knockout game and flailed a bit on Royer's second goal at RBA.  I guess all keepers give up a bad one every now and then (see Everton v. Liverpool last week), but I'm not totally sold on him yet.  He's the USA #1 mostly because no one else has really impressed consistently.
