Today we discuss Cristiano Ronaldo's legacy after his move to Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia, the USMNT drama between Gregg Berhalter and the Reyna family, and why Chelsea have been struggling so hard recently.

On December 30th, 2022, Saudi Pro League club Al-Nassr signed Cristiano Ronaldo for two and half years on 200 million euros a year, the highest salary for a football player. This came about a month after his contract with Manchester United was terminated. How does this move affect Ronaldo's legacy? Is he officially washed?

Gio Reyna didn't get a lot of minutes for the USMNT during the World Cup. Berhalter afterwards stated that it was because of behavioral issues. As a retaliation, Gio Reyna's parents, Claudio and Danielle Reyna announced without anyone's consent that Gregg Berhalter abused his now wife in 1991. Now, US Soccer, the Berhalter's, and the Reyna's must deal with the fall out. Who is to blame and how does US Soccer move forward?

Chelsea FC… are struggling. They find themselves in 10th place, just as close to relegation as they are to the top 4. One Premier League win in the last 3 months. Are injuries to blame, or can we assign some blame to manager Graham Potter and owner Todd Boehly?
