We linked to a tweet from Dave Zeitlin yesterday that indicated that, with Danny Califf doubtful for Saturday's match against Chivas USA, Peter Nowak is likely to start the same back four that played against Columbus, which means Garfan on the left, Gaddis on the right, with Valdes and Williams in the middle.

The soul of soccer in South Florida was completely ripped out of the region in 2001 when MLS decided to fold the Miami Fusion.

Twelve years on, it's still difficult for me to write or talk about the Miami Fusion. It was a team that was so near and dear to my heart that when the team contracted, I cried.

Leo Messi weaves through Bilbao defenders, scores masterful goal

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

When Bayern Munich thumped Barcelona 4-0 in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal earlier in the week, Lionel Messi was largely made irrelevant as he dealt with the lingering effects of a hamstring injury. But in Barca's match against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, Messi's hamstring seemed just fine as he weaved through defenders and fired a shot into the bottom corner of the goal.

Victor Valdes keeps Real alive as Barca beats them, 3-2

Horrible, horrible mistake by Victor Valdes. What was he thinking? With the match in the bag for the Catalans by a mile, Valdes's bad first touch on a back pass allows Angel Di Maria to swoop down on him and as the goalie tries to clumsily dribble the ball away, loses his nerve and balance, falls and a predatory Di Maria gratefully finishes off.

The Baffling & Blessed Grace of One Argentine Leonardo Messi

I've heard there was a special chord

That Ray Hudson sang when Messi scored

But you don't really care for pundits, do you?

It goes like this

The fourth, the fifth

The Xavi pass, the Andres split

The baffled d decomposing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was low you needed a lift

You saw him darting on the pitch

His beauty in the floodlights overthrew you

He glued you to a Nou Camp chair

He climbed your throne, he showed you flair

And from your lips he drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Halleluja, Hallelujah

There was a time when you tread below

Dinho was fat & Marquez slow

But now you look down upon me, do you?

Brian Bilello's announced seven-day window from the time of his conference call until the naming of a new head coach is winding to a close, and so far we've learned a few things about the Revolution's quest:

  • There were around a dozen candidates identified and interviewed
  • Jimmy Conrad announced, to no one in particular, that he was not interested in the job because he hated football lines and had too much respect for Steve Nicol
  • Paul Mariner, Steve Ralston, Jay Heaps, and Brian Bliss are definitely among the candidates
  • Paul Mariner ruled himself out immediately after interviewing, accepting a 2-year extension with Toronto
  • The candidates were gleaned from a diverse array of backgrounds, with MLS and non-MLS experience throughout

It's probably a little late, but I'd like to take this opportunity to put forward my number-one, most prized candidate for the job.
