It’s because the Americans don’t understand anything about football

Being from Atlanta and a huge ATL United fanatic, I'm (We) are going to certainly miss Miguel.  It was well known when he came to Atlanta that his ultimate goal was to play in the Premier.  The team knew it and the fan base knew it.  His dream has come true but he will be sorely missed here but I must add we are very happy for him.

 

You will be impressed with his game intellect, play making ability, unselfishnes and especially his pure speed.  He is also a humble and class act.  I've always wanted a Premier league team to root for and now I have one.  Godspeed Miguel.

Between here and reddit, its been unusual (and nice) to see the outpouring of affection for Almiron from Atlantas fans. Seems rare that players move on to "bigger" things and are sent away with such good will from the fans.

We know anything and everything about football......We just don't know much about soccer :)........

 

Not really true though.  I've been playing since I was 5 and 30 years later I'm still playing....I promise you we get it, most of us anyway.

Did you know that a game of American "Football" can be played in its entirety with the ball being kicked only twice?  1st half kick-off - 2nd half kick-off,   so why "Football"? :)

Rugby Football, Association Football, Gaelic Football, Aussie Rules Football, American Football.

 

It's their national sport so no mystery why they just call it "football".  Same as there's no mystery why soccer, the most popular version of the game is known as just "football" in much of the World.

Nice one mate! Can’t wait to see him in action. Sounds like exactly the player we’ve been crying out for for years now, as long as he can hit the ground running quickly. Too often foreign players take months to adjust to the pace and physicality of the PL, which we don’t have if we’re going to avoid the drop.

And don’t worry about the piss takey comments. Standard treatment for any newbie, no matter how civil they are, so don’t take it personally, give a bit back and welcome to the board!

Not sure Ritchie would agree with the unselfishness of Almiron. A simple pass to a team mate who was in a much better position should have been the choice to take. Undoubtedly a top premiership player, but it's frustrating when our players don't do this. Fair enough when the game is done, but it would make games a lot easier if there was a bit less selfishness on the pitch.
