Welcome to today’s Commentary Thread, following all matches around the world that involve US players. This weekend begins the 2 weeks of madness in the UK. Many UK teams, across all leagues, will play 3 or even 4 games in quick succession, and their hopes will rise and fall following the holiday schedules. All this while most of the other European Leagues take a break.
