Update On Camp Trialists

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
Daniel Boniface came through with the info on the 4 trialists in camp. I was wrong in my earlier post tonight, Epstein is not one of the Academy goalkeepers. In short (see Boniface's article for the full details):

GK Cody Mizell (Charlotte, played with Atlanta and Tampa in NASL)
GK Connor Gavigan (Creighton, played in the Rapids Academy)
GK Kai Likewise (Rapids U-18 Academy team)
M Jun Marques Davidson (Charlotte, spent time in MLS with Vancouver)

The fact that we have 3 extra keepers in camp makes me wonder if there's a possible GK deal int he works for Berner or (more likely) MacMath.

Sporting KC Best XI - Goalkeeper

Down the Byline at related • 0 views
Sporting KC will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first game coming up on April 13th. The match on that day will actually be a replay of the club's first match as the KC Wiz from 1996 against the Colorado Rapids. Ahead of that game, Sporting KC is doing a poll for fans to pick the Best XI in the club's history, starting with goalkeepers, then up the field to defenders, midfielders, and forwards.

The day of reckoning is at hand

Will it ever end?

Zac MacMath was sent on loan to the Colorado Rapids earlier this week. That's bad. That's so, so bad.

The move will be beneficial for Zac, who has a good chance of starting at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. But for us--those of us still trapped in Philly--this is an unmitigated disaster.

Heaps: "We expect to carry the four guys on our roster—four guys that we're actually really excited about."

It's pretty atypical in MLS to see a roster with four goalkeepers on it but such is the case with the New England Revolution.

The club currently has four options to play between the sticks in Bobby Shuttleworth, Brad Knighton, Cody Cropper, and Matt Turner.

Mix it up a wee bit, my editor said. So I got to 4th May, and I notedthat on his day in 1966, the great Peter Shilton made the first of his record 1,005 football league appearances when he stepped up between the sticks for Leicester City (whatever happened to them?) against Everton.

Willy Caballero When Two Becomes One - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

The 2016 Capital One Cup Final probably yielded little that will remain long in the memory of the neutral supporter.

Better Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Buffon or Manuel Neuer?

Quite simply, the goalkeeper position is the hardest position to rate when comparing players. Often times goalkeepers can be made or broken by their team's success; unfairly condemned or built up thanks to the players in front of them. There are an abundance of goalkeepers in the game today that are considered "great" players, who have been the product of the team in front of them, while at the same time there are goalkeepers who don't get enough credit because their team makes them look bad.
