KINGSTON, Jamaica-- Just three weeks after making history by winning in Mexico for the first time, the U.S. team made history again, only it was the kind they definitely didn't want to make.

Jurgen Klinsmann had to know his U.S. team would be in for a tough night without a handful of key veterans, but he also has to know that his teams chances of leaving Jamaica with a point or three were going to hinge on his roster and lineup selections.

Ricardo Clark is returning to Houston.Â

The former Dynamo standout central midfielder has re-signed with the club after trying his hand abroad, according to Houston's FOX affiliate, which reported the acquisition as a done deal on Thursday afternoon. Because Clark left MLS on a free transfer, Houston maintained his MLS rights, so he was not subjected to the league's allocation order upon his return.

MLS East Notes: 'A good day for Freddy,' Rost, Rodgers near returns & more

By THOMAS FLOYD

When Freddy Adu, fresh off a breakthrough performance in the Gold Cup, signed with the Philadelphia Union last month, the 22-year-old playmaker was seen as the key missing cog for a team with lofty playoff aspirations.

But for a player whose club playing time in Europe has been sporadic at best over the past few years, gaining the fitness to contribute on a consistent basis has been a challenge early in his second MLS stint.

So much was different that it made such comparisons easy new ownership, new management, nearly new squad, and success that, at least when directly contrasted with the way Liverpool played for the first five months of the 2010-2011 season, couldn't really be compared.

Tournament Tea Leaves?

Sorry for no United match reaction this weekend; a youth soccer tournament intervened. That said, watching my girls roller-coaster through the tournament was a lot like watching United's uneven 2011 progress. So much so, in fact, that those thirteen girls in red shirts running through the rain were starting to look distinctly like tea leaves in which I could read United's valiant, but ultimately futile, stretch run.
