This edition showcasing the 2016 game with AC Milan when they played against Liverpool in the International Champions Cup.  The original plan was to post this in late July but due to all the circumstances leading to the August match we decided to delay writing this blurb.  Instead, it is just the one game from two years ago from the stint with FootySF.  Enjoy!

This Week 12-24-18

This is the last post of the year and we’re putting the latest news all in here.  We will be back on January 6.

Some latest Hot Stove News.  There have been the complaints about the off-season moves, or lack thereof, but it looks like there is a new player under the new regime. reports on what has been a quiet off-season for player acquisitions for the team and their take on the newest player Judson.  Hopefully this is not the only one between now and the start of the 2019 season.

Nick Lima gets another callup to the US National Team.  The January slate will have matches at Glendale, Arizona and here in San Jose.  Here’s to hoping he gets a cap in one or both games, especially in front of the Avaya Stadium crowd.
