Good morning folks. It is a slow news cycle in the soccer world so I started wondering about
random issues pertaining to Major League Soccer. A reader asked what I considered a league issue
that MLS needs to address and I thought about the reserve division and how it needs to be
That got me to wondering about what I would do if I could be MLS commissioner for a day and
could actually implement some rules or changes that would be adopted by the league permanently.
If you are a New Jersey resident and have ever wondered what indoor soccer was all about, you
will soon have your own team to watch.
The New Jersey Ironmen are set to make their home debut at the Prudential Center in Newark on
Saturday night (7:30pm). Brazilian legend Pele will be in attendance and the team is expecting a
sellout crowd for the opener.
Good afternoon folks. It's another dreary day on the East Coast and I will be heading offline
for a bit today. I was hoping to have last week's Q&A session completed but was unable to get to
all of them. Rather than make you wait, I have decided to post some of the answers to some of your
DaMarcus Beasley looks to be out for the year with damaged knee ligaments, according to the
Glasgow Daily Record. Beasley injured his left knee after colliding with Stuttgart goalkeeper
Raphael Schafer during Stuttgart's 3-2 Champions League win against Rangers on Wednesday.
If Beasley has torn knee ligaments, he could be sidelined through the summer, with a fall return
likely at best.
From the 'Haven't I heard this someplace before' department comes news that the Red Bulls are
set to begin construction on Red Bull Park. The Star Ledger is reporting that the club is set to
begin building Red Bull Park next week. Yes, Red Bull Park is the same stadium that was supposed to
be finished by next summer.
Good afternoon folks. Apologies for the delay in getting this up. You know the drill. If you're
watching Champions League action today then share your thoughts as well as letting us know what
you're seeing. I will do a light commentary on Chelsea-Rosenborg.
Red Bulls Jozy Altidore and Hunter Freeman are two of 22 players selected to the first U.S.
Under-23 national team camp under U.S. Under-23 national team head coach Peter Nowak. The camp is
being held in preparation of a two-match tour in China in December.
The team will train for a week at Home Depot Center beginning on Dec.
If you missed the November issue of World Soccer magazine you missed a cover story on the 50
Most Exciting Teenagers on the Planet. It was a great piece with quality information, especially
for those of you who relish knowing about the best up and coming talents in the game.
Some of the players you would expect were on the list, including Sergio Aguero, Alexandre Pato,
Micah Richards, Giovani Dos Santos, Bojan Krkic and Anderson, but there were two players who were
NOT on the list that left me scratching my head a bit.
Those of you praying that Argentine playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme would somehow make his way to
Major League Soccer will have to find a new dream. Riquelme will return to Boca Juniors once the
winter transfer period opens in January. The deal will be a full transfer, not a loan deal like the
one Riquelme joined Boca Juniors on earlier in the year.
The MLS season ended 11 days ago at MLS Cup but some of the league's best young talents are
still busy playing. A 16-player Generation adidas squad is in Madrid, Spain for a two-week training
tour that includes matches against some La Liga reserve teams.
Current Red Bull Hunter Freeman, former Red Bulls Marvell Wynne and David Arvizu, and former
MetroStar Tim Ward are part of the squad while retired Red Bull Mark Lisi, who now works for
adidas, organized the tour.
U.S. national team winger DaMarcus Beasley was taken off the field on a stretcher during
Rangers' 3-2 loss to Stuttgart on Wednesday. The details of Beasley's injury are not known yet but
Rangers manager Walter Smith is calling the injury serious.
Good afternoon all. We are less than an hour away from kicking off most of today's Champions
League fixtures and it's a good time to set up a running commentary post (As you can see by the
picture above, some Champions League action has already begun, with PSV opening the scoring against
The wait is over. I'm sure some of you were wondering what happened to the last episode of You
Write the Caption. Well, it was a busy month and I let it slip by for a few weeks but here's hoping
that delay makes these caption entries that much funnier.
In case you forgot the last YWTC photo, it is the one above of Alexi Lalas playing in a recent
Here's a question to ponder for the San Jose Earthquakes fans who are just logging on to their
computers this morning. With American forward Kamani Hill and Derby manager Billy Davies looking
for work, is it that far-fetched to consider a scenario where Hill and Derby winger Eddie Lewis
wind up with the Earthquakes?
The Columbus Crew shipped forward Kei Kamara to San Jose for midfielder Brian Carroll today.
Who wins in this deal? From a talent standpoint, I'll go with Columbus, which lands a solid
defensive midfielder whose stock is low but upside is high. The Crew already has Danny O'Rourke in
defensive midfield, but pairing them together would give Columbus a pretty tough tandem to provide
defensive cover behind midfielders Eddie Gaven and Guillermo Barros Schelotto.
So I was going through my TIVO the other day, trying to get through all the shows I've missed in
recent weeks, and I stumble on some Futbol Mundial episodes. One of them focuses on the FIFA Beach
Soccer World Cup when I see a familiar face in one of the clips.
It was none other than former MetroStars striker (and Mike Ammann hacker) Mamadou Diallo.
Good morning all. The World Cup qualifying draw was this past weekend and it gave us plenty to
look forward to in the next two years. from England's chance at revenge against Croatia to the USA
drawing an easier path to the Hexagonal than Mexico.
We also had increasing talk about Jozy Altidore going to Europe.
The U.S. national team's path to the 2010 World Cup will begin with a match-up against the
winner of the Dominica/Barbados play-in qualifier. As you may recall, the US team faced Barbados at
this stage in the last World Cup qualifying cycle.
If you are wondering about Mexico, 'El Tri' will face face the winner Belize/St.
Just when you thought Wednesday's disastrous loss to Croatia was as bad as it could get for
England, now comes word that the defeat will cost them dearly when the time comes to draw groups
for qualifying for the 2010 World Cup.
England has fallen to 12th in the FIFA World rankings, which is only good for 10th in
The unthinkable happened to the English national team. Needing just a tie to advance to next
summer's European Championships, England fell behind 2-0, came back to tie Croatia 2-2, only to
surrender a late goal to fall, 3-2, at Wembley Stadium, ending their Euro hopes and damning coach
Steve McClaren to infamy.
One of the more intriguing rumors to surface at MLS Cup was word that New England defender
Michael Parkhurst was set to make a move to Fulham, making him the fifth American on the books at
the London club.
So is he leaving or not? None of the Boston papers have reported anything substantial and
neither have any of the reputable papers in England.
Amidst all the festivities of MLS Cup weekend, there were a few announcements that did not get
the attention they deserved. The first was word from MLS that it was grandfathering the contracts
of Landon Donovan, Eddie Johnson and Carlos Ruiz so that their teams would not need to make them
Designated Players to keep them.
I don't think I'm alone in believing that this decision was an absolute joke.
So much for Argentina rolling through World Cup qualifying unbeaten.
Carlos Tevez saw a first-half red card as Colombia scored a pair of second half goals to upset
Argentina, 2-1, on Tuesday night. The victory moves Colombia, still unbeaten in four qualifying
matches, to eight points, just a point behind Argentina.
Lionel Messi worked his usual magic with a nice first-half goal, but Colombia was at home and
rallied in the second half as the Argentines tired from playing a man down.
It is way too early to be awake but here I am after having passed out really early last night.
Yes, I'm still feeling the aftereffects of MLS Cup weekend. What can I say? My days of partying
hard and being able to recover quickly are over.
Let's start the day off with some articles you may or may not have already seen as well as my
appearance on Marcelo Balboa's radio show, From the Pitch
Here is the link to my radio appearance last night.
Okay, I know some of you have asked me what the MLS Cup weekend in DC was like. Well, I have
decided to post a diary of my experience at weekend's activities. The diary is LONG so I hope you
have some time to kill. That's assuming you don't fall asleep while reading it.
Here it is, my diary of the MLS Cup Weekend:
Thursday- Driving down I-95 has become second nature after so many trips to
The best benchwarmer in the soccer world is six weeks away from freedom. The question is where
will Juan Roman Riquelme go?
Riquelme is set to leave his nightmare situation at Villarreal during the next transfer window
in January and top teams throughout Europe are lining up bids. Inter Milan and Juventus are near
the front of the line while Atletico Madrid has long been interested in acquiring the Argentine
Good morning folks. For those of you wondering what players the San Jose Earthquakes would have
to choose from in Wednesday's expansion draft, wonder no more. Here are the players who will be
available (I left out RSL and Toronto because they are the most likely to not have any players
Get your suntan lotion and dressy outfits ready, MLS Cup is going back to California in 2008 as
the title game returns to the Home Depot Center after a three year hiatus from the jewel of Carson,
Here you go, some more news hot off the SBI presses.
Here is the Red Bulls expansion list:
Juan Pablo Angel Jozy Altidore Dane Richards Jeff Parke Seth Stammler Jon Conway Hunter Freeman
Dema Kovalenko Carlos Mendes Claudio Reyna Dave Van Den Bergh Players who were NOT protected
included: John Wolyniec, Joe Vide, Sinisa Ubiparipovic and Francis Doe
Soccer By Ives has learned that the Red Bulls have traded Clint Mathis, the club's all-time
goal-scoring leader, to the LA Galaxy for the Galaxy's third-round draft pick in the 2008 MLS
Draft. I'll post more information as I get it.
The trade sends Mathis back to the Galaxy, the club where his MLS career started in 1998. It
also completes his career with the Red Bulls/MetroStars.
If you watched the MLS Cup Final on Sunday one play that certainly stood out was when Khano
Smith appeared to headbutt Houston defender Craig Waibel in the second half. Referee Alex Prus only
gave Smith a yellow card though, so what gives?
According to Smith, he hit Waibel with his shoulder and not his head and insisted that Waibel
dove to try and get him thrown out.
Former high school All-American and St. Benedict's Prep standout Jose Angulo is very close to
deciding on signing with Major League Soccer ahead of the 2008 MLS Draft in January.
According to sources close to Angulo, the left-footed striker has received strong interest from
a top team in Italy but concerns about his citizenship status in MLS have Angulo leaning toward
signing with MLS.
Good morning folks. It is the day after one busy weekend of soccer action. You had MLS Cup, the
US national team playing its last game and European championship and South American World Cup
qualifiers going on. It truly was a soccer fan's paradise.
Here is a look back at some of the weekend's highlights:
Good morning folks. I'm coming to you from RFK Stadium and we are about an hour away from MLS
I'm writing you from the computer of Dallas-based writer and ESPN.com teammate Steve Davis
because the wireless connection isn't working for everybody. Hopefully it gets hashed out or else
you might be subjected to Soccer By Steve.
I will be doing a running commentary during the match (as soon as my computer gets a
The Red Bulls' search for a head coach to replace Bruce Arena has led them to Chicago head coach
Juan Carlos Osorio. Sources have told SBI that the Red Bulls asked for permission to speak with
Osorio about their vacant head coaching position. Chicago turned down the Red Bulls request but
there is still a possibility that the Fire will grant the Red Bulls permission to speak to
Good afternoon folks. I'm back from watching the USA-South Africa match, which was definitely
entertaining (Not the match, but going to Summer's to watch it). It has been a very interesting
weekend in DC with last night's Commissioner's Party serving as the high point of the weekend. A
veritable who's who of American soccer converged on Park at 14th and the information was
Good morning folks. Yes, I am awake (barely) and am about to head to Summer's in Arlinton VA.
The lineup for today's match is out and the only variation from my proposed lineup is Heath Pearce
at left back (with Feilhaber on the right wing and Bradley in central midfield)
I will attempt to do some running commentary from Summer's but if I can't you can at least post
your thoughts on the match here.
Good afternoon folks. I'm freezing to death in the RFK Stadium press box and finalized plans for
watching the USA-South Africa friendly on Saturday. I will be watching it at Summer's in Arlington
VA. Bruce from the Dunord blog is hosting a viewing party and he has given me permission to crash
it. That means all SBI Mafia members are encouraged to attend.
The Red Bulls are set to announce the completion of their purchase of AEG's share of the Red
Bull Park stadium project. Yes, finally.
This should pave the way for Red Bull to begin construction of Red Bull Park, at least in
theory. As you know from reading SBI, the project is facing some issues that should delay the
project. One Red Bulls official told me my new timetable for the project was inaccurate.
Real Madrid is after Jozy Altidore. That is the word emerging from Spain today as leading sports
daily AS is reporting that Real is scouting the Red Bulls striker.
The lead to the article says it all. "Real Madrid is searching the international market for
players who are young, talented and inexpensive, all qualities found in forward Jozy Altidore, the
grand sensation of MLS.
Good evening folks. Apologies for the lengthy blackout but I drove to down to DC today and took
in the festivities at the ESPN Zone.
As you know by now, Luciano Emilio won the MVP Award, beating out Juan Pablo Angel. As SBI
readers know, I felt Angel should win the award. I still feel that way, and feel like I made a
pretty strong and clear argument for Angel, but I won't argue about Emilio winning it.
Good morning folks. Today I head to our nation's capitol for the 12th installment of the MLS Cup
title game and for those of you who don't know, MLS Cup weekend consists of far more than just the
Cup weekend is also when officials from all of the league's teams converge in one place,
creating a great atmosphere to gather information and meet people you have written about during the
Clifton native and U.S. Under-20 national team standout Danny Szetela earned his first official
start for Spanish club Racing de Santander on Wednesday. He played 65 minutes in Racing's scoreless
tie against Malaga in the fourth round of Copa Del Rey.
The start is a promising development for the former Columbus Crew midfielder, who hadn't made an
appearance yet in a first team match since signing with Racing in August.
Manchester United and Arsenal posted easy victories last weekend to maintain their holds on the
top two spots in the SBI European Club Top 25.
The pack chasing the English giants thinned out a bit as Barcelona and Real Madrid endured
disappointing weeks. Barca lost to Getafe AGAIN and has fallen to fifth while Inter Milan didn't
play due to the fan violence in Italy.
Red Bulls midfielder and MLS rookie of the year finalist Dane Richards has been called up to the
Jamaican national team for friendlies against El Salvador (Nov. 18) and Guatemala (Nov. 21) in
Richards is no stranger to the national team, having earned three caps already.
It has been a shaky time for the Jamaican national team, which recently fired Bora Milutinovic
as head coach and replaced him, at least temporarily, with long time national team player Theodore
That was a question posed to me in the latest Q&A session, to name my CONCACAF Best XI.
It is a pretty tricky question because if you're talking about talent and value then you get one
team, but if you talk about current form and production you can come up with a completely different
The U.S. national team is set to face Mexico at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Feb. 6th in the
first meeting between the teams since the Americans downed the Mexicans in the Gold Cup Final, 2-1,
You know the record. The United States is 8-0-1 against Mexico on American soil since 2000,
9-2-1 in all meetings since 2000.
U.S. national team star Landon Donovan will miss the team's friendly against South Africa with a
calf strain suffered during an exhibition match for the Galaxy. The injury reduces the number of
players in the U.S. Camp to 17 and should leave Bob Bradley with some interesting decisions.
Chief among them is whether to give Jozy Altidore his first national team start in his first
If you are a Red Bulls fan who was hoping to take in games at the team's new stadium in 2009,
you are going to have to wait longer than expected.
According to multiple sources, the proposed Red Bull Park stadium project in Harrison is looking
at a completion by the fall of 2009 at best, with 2010 a possibility that is growing stronger by
Good afternoon folks. It took a bit longer than I had hoped for but I finally finished off the
last round of questions. I was supposed to do these last week but as you know, things got a little
crazy around here.
Now, without any further ado, here are the answers to ALL most of your questions:
KAHLVA- It's the old question: What's up with Red Bull Park?
Good morning all. It has been a pretty active past few days in MLS.
After a year that saw an infusion of new talent, a crop of new coaches and even one new team
(Toronto), we went through an entire season to wind up with the exact same two teams playing for
the MLS Cup as last year, Houston and New England. Admit it, you were hoping for something less
U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley has called up Jonathan Spector and Heath Pearce for the
team's upcoming friendly against South Africa. The national team soccer blog reported that Spector
and Pearce on their way in while veteran Eddie Lewis will NOT be joining the squad in South
Things just got interesting. With Jonathan Bornstein alreay in camp, we will now get a good idea
how the national team's left back prospects stack up heading into 2008.
Good morning folks. I was going to save this for the Americans in Europe roundup, but decided to
give you guys an early-morning treat.
U.S. national team midfielder Michael Bradley continued his goal-scoring exploits this weekend,
scoring the game-winning goal to help Heerenveen overcome an early red card and post a 1-0 victory
over Vitesse Arnhem on Sunday.
Good evening folks. In a few short hours we will find out who the second MLS Cup participant
will be. Will it be defending champion Houston, or underdog Kansas City? We will find out at 8:30pm
on Fox Soccer Channel.
WHo do I see winning? I can't see Kansas City knocking off the Dynamo under any circumstances. I
mean hey, it's soccer, the best team doesn't always, but in this instance I'll take the
battle-tested champions over the club that moonwalked its way into the playoffs.
No, there are no Manchester United-Arsenal type matches this weekend but if you are looking for
entertaining match-ups, this weekend has its share.
Defending MLS champion Houston faces Kansas City with an MLS Cup berth on the line on Saturday
night. On the European front, Manchester United plays host to Blackburn and Sevilla faces
Villarreal in the best game on TV this weekend.
You can now add Wayne Rooney to the list of injured stars after the Man U striker injured his
ankle earlier today. The injury is expected to keep him out for up to a month, which means he will
miss England's crucial Euro qualifier against Croatia on Nov. 16.
Red Bulls forward Jozy Altidore has been called in for the U.S. national team's upcoming
friendly against South Africa on Nov. 17. He and fellow U.S. Under-20 stars Freddy Adu and Michael
Bradley will join veteran standouts Clint Dempsey, DaMarcus Beasley, Tim Howard and Landon Donovan
on the squad that will travel to Africa to face the 2010 World Cup hosts in the Nelson Mandela
Good morning all. One of the crazier weeks in recent memory is almost over and the news just
keeps on coming in the soccer world.
The Los Angeles Galaxy is set to introduce Dutch legend Ruud Gullit as its next head coach today
and I can't help but think about the vast array of high-profile foreign coaches who have come to
MLS and failed to work the magic most expected of them.
It is a few days late but I finally got around to doing a new SBI European Club Top 25.
Arsenal and Man U met with the No. 1 spot on the line last weekend and while the teams tied in a
thrilling affair, Man U did enough in mid-week to merit a move into the No. 1 place. Arsenal's 0-0
tie against Slavia Prague drops them to No. 2.
Good evening folks. We will find out the first qualifier for the MLS Cup final tonight when
Chicago faces New England in the Eastern Conference Final. I will be doing a running commentary on
the match and you can follow along and add your comments here.
Let's have some fun. Fire away.
PRE-GAME- The Revs starting lineup is the same it has been.
Good morning folks. I'm coming to you live from the Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City and I'm
enjoying a little break from the blog. I will be back later this afternoon. Feel free to use this
post to discuss any of the issues that have propped up while I have been away from the blog,
Ruud Gullit as LA Galaxy coach
Preki as coach of the year
More Red Bulls banter
Tonight's MLS Eastern Conference final
I will be doing a running commentary on the match tonight so check back in for that.
Toronto FC midfielder Maurice Edu was named MLS Rookie of the Year today. Edu beat out Red Bulls
midfielder Dane Richards and New England forward Adam Cristman (as well as RSL's Robbie Findley,
who should have made the final three).
Edu was a rock for Toronto FC all season, showing vision, strength, athleticism and courage in
You Write the Caption is back and I had to resurrect it after finding a great photo of
everyone's favorite MLS team president, Alexi Lalas. The man who has ruined as many MLS teams as
Andy Williams has played for made his return as a player recently in a charity soccer match.
Enjoy the photo and provide your own caption:
"Alexi Lalas prepares for his signature move, the foot in mouth.
I just read through the newest edition of 4-4-2 Magazine and it is a must-have, particularly if
you are a Kaka fan.
This got me to thinking about the best soccer magazines out there. As you know, there seems to
be a new batch of soccer magazines every time I hit the bookstore. Unfortunately, the list of top
three magazines hasn't changed in years.
If you were waiting to hear some negative comments from Red Bulls players about former coach
Bruce Arena. Not only did just four players speak to the media on Tuesday, not had a single bad
thing to say about Arena.
Juan Pablo Angel, Dave Van Den Bergh, Jon Conway and Clint Mathis were all interviewed and none
of them took any shots at Arena.
It is the kind of news that deserves its own press release and conference call but lost in the
Red Bulls conference call to discuss Bruce Arena's 'resignation' was word that Jeff Agoos' position
as technical director was being eliminated.
Agoos will become a candidate for the position of sporting director, a title Arena held along
with head coach.
Bruce Arena's tenure as head coach of the Red Bulls is over.
Soccer By Ives has learned that Arena has been fired as head coach and sporting director, ending
his tenure with the team after his first full season with the club. Sources close to the team
confirmed that the Red Bulls will announce Arena's departure on Tuesday.
The decision comes just two days after the Red Bulls' season ended with a playoff loss to New
It was a good weekend for American soccer players in Europe. No, they didn't score goals in
bunches (though Clint Dempsey did find the net again) but more of them are getting playing time as
some return from injury and others from the depths of the bench.
You already know about how Freddy Adu has established himself in recent weeks as a regular
contributor to Benfica, but now Jonathan Spector and Heath Pearce have managed to escape from the
'Did not Dress" category to play for their respective teams.
Good morning all. It was a crazy weekend in Major League Soccer as the two best teams during the
regular season, DC United and Chivas USA, both lost their first-round playoff series. The shakeup
means Chicago and Kansas City, which both needed late-season wins just to make the MLS playoffs,
are one win away from an MLS Cup final berth.
The inevitable has happened. Frank Yallop's tumultuous tenure with the Los Angeles Galaxy has
ended. He reached an agreement on a buyout with the Galaxy and is set to coach the San Jose
Earthquakes, which are set to return to MLS as an expansion team in 2008.
Yallop was always the front-runner to coach the Earthquakes after leading San Jose to a pair of
MLS Cup titles during the club's first incarnation.
I had to take the day off from the blog today but had to pass this along. If you missed
Villarreal's thrilling 4-3 win against Atletico Madrid this weekend you can catch the replay on
GolTV tonight at midnight. If you can't stay up for it then you should at least set the TIVO. You
won't be disappointed.
So it's another year and another painful disappointment for the Red Bulls and I know you Red
Bulls fans out there are ready to vent your frustrations. It was a roller coaster season, with
glimpses of brilliance and moments of painful sheer pain.
Here is your chance to vent. Feel free to talk about this year and what you hated and loved
Call MLS the league of the goalkeeper. You already know about former MLS goalkeepers Brad
Friedel, Tim Howard and Marcus Hahnemann plying their trades in the English Premier league, and now
you've heard about Brad Guzan being scouted by Arsenal. Now, Colorado goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul is
starting to gain international attention.
Soccer By Ives has learned that Coundoul has been called up to the Senegalese national team for
upcoming friendlies against Mali ion Nov.
Good afternoon folks. I'm at Gillette Stadium and it is MISERABLE here. The combination of rain,
cold and wind should make for an ugly game tonight (at least it isn't snowing like game two in
2005). On the bright side the football lines have been erased for the game.
Here are some updates for tonight's game:
Francis Doe is nursing an abdominal strain and is questionable for tonight's match.
If you are still in some shock after seeing the No. 1 seed in the East go down on Thursday
night, get ready. You may be in for another surprise.
The Kansas City Wizards are on the verge of knocking off West No. 1 seed Chivas USA in their
playoff series. Chivas USA, which came into the playoffs without Ante Razov, will now face life
without Maykel Galindo, who is expected to miss game two with a groin injury.
Admit it. When you heard Manchester United-Arsenal wasn't going to be on basic cable you almost
cried? Now you will have to head over to an overcrowded soccer bar in the AM to see the can't-miss
Want a consolation prize? How about Juve-Inter? Or Atletico Madrid-Villarreal? Is Real
Madrid-Sevilla more your liking?
The point is there will be plenty of high-level clashes on TV this weekend for those of you who
won't pay the pay-per-view cost or hit a soccer bar for Arsenal-Man U.
Good morning folks. It is the day after Chicago's thrilling series victory against DC United and
we are left with a bit of a soccer hangover as we wait for the weekend's action to get here
I will be heading up to New England today but before I do I figured it was time for another
Question and Answer session. Send me your soccer-related questions and I will do my best to answer
them or give my take on them.
We are a little more than three hours from kickoff of tonight's Chicago-DC United playoff
decider on ESPN2 and I'm sure those of you who support these teams (and many who don't) can't wait
for the match to start.
While you wait for kickoff you should check out this article I wrote today on DC coach Tom Soehn
and Chicago coach Juan Carlos Osorio.
It was an interesting day at Red Bulls practice. No, Bruce Arena didn't put Jozy Altidore in
goal, but there were some interesting nuggets relating to Clint Mathis, Dave Van Den Bergh and the
Here is the rundown:
The most interesting thing Arena said regarding the team on Wednesday was that the goalkeeper
situation is still not decided.
