During the past week, the Belgian league seemed to be getting an odd influx of US players:
- Ben Lederman (AA Gent - from Barcelona's youth program)
- Frantzdy Pierrot (RE Mouscron - previously with Coastal Carolina)
- Brendan Hines-Ike (KV Kortrijk - from Örebro)

(all three completely unknown to me)

I recall how nuts American fans were about Julian Green not that long ago, and I see our relatively staid reactions to Tim Weah and I think maybe we're getting better as fans?

He scored for PSG today, is a teenager, and has the best pedigree of any American player, ever, and the internet soccer community is pretty chill about it.

he hasn't played much for the senior side yet - I love his attitude even if he is crazy optimistic. Hopefully he can find minutes maybe even some before PSG leads 4-0.

Tuchel seems to really like him, so that's a positive (funny that's it's Tuchel with Weah now).

I think most have realized that for every 10 legit prospects we have we can hope for 1-3 make it to the Nats. He reminds me of a young mans poor Henry, which I would take everyday. But yeah he needs minutes and not just practice with the stars.
