Well, I’d sure like to see Jack Clarke get a start, but hey, if Bielsa says he needs to be careful with his minutes, then, who I am to argue?

Clarke has been brilliant coming on as a second-half sub for over a month now. But maybe that’s what he needs right now, just coming in as a sub and carving up the other team. Bielsa has forgotten more about developing youth than I’ll ever know. Who am I to argue?

On to the links.
