MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Chicago Fire Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Simon Colyn:

Colyn was an unused sub or not in the squad for 6/8 Spal U19’s matches in May. He played in two games, 67 minutes against AC Milan’s U19s and 58 Minutes against Lazio’s U-19s. I’m not sure if his less frequent appearances are due to poor play, a niggling injury or something else. Believe it or not there isn’t a lot of English language information on the U19 sides of Serie B teams.

Damiano Pecile:

This month Damiano Pecile was loaned to (freshly promoted) Seria A side Venezia. Pecile has not appeared for them at any level yet but will most likely play for their U19s when they play again (I have no idea when this will be, again, kind of flying blind when it comes to Italian youth leagues).

Jasser Khmiri:

Khmiri has been a regular starter for San Antonio F.C. San Antonio currently sit second in the USL Championship’s Western Conference Mountain Division (2W-2D-1L). American Soccer Analysis has been covering the lower leagues of American men’s soccer this season, giving us unprecedented insight into the play of players like Khmiri. They think he sucks ass.

In lieu of easily sortable defensive action data I have included how Khmiri ranks in the interrupting category of G+. San Antonio seems to instruct it’s centre backs to just hoof the ball long every chance they get because all of their other centre backs are super vertical inaccurate passers as well. But even taking that into account there is not a lot here that makes you think Khmiri is ever going to make it as an MLS player.
