Should DeJong be banned ??? 2 broken legs (Holden/Ben Arfa) and a kung-fu kick at the WC (X.Alonso) IMHO YES!!!!!
Feilhaber get 2 PK's and one from the field in 6 - 3 victory in Denmark's Cup series
AGF Aarhus - sorry
Feilhaber scores three (3) for Arhaus
I don't agree that there is little chance of DCU moving - per Chang's last interview - but I agree with you that it will not be a Topeka (apologies to those fine folk) But Atlanta (or St Louis) would be prime cities to accept a team move. As for Comcast you said it all - gotta have the repeat of the Wash Post show - is much more interesting and will draw a much larger audience (NOT)
fubar, I just moved back to DC after 3 years in South Florida. You are absolutely correct. Even though there is a huge Central/South American audience, and enormous interest in football(soccer)in S Florida, the fan base is just not interested in attending games or supporting a team. Go figure, its certainly against the common wisdom concerning growth of the game in the USA. That said North of Florida there is interest and support especially in NC (Raleigh/Charlotte) and GA (Atlanta). So I wouldn't just discount the SE. Maybe the resolution is to re-align teams - move under-performers to regions that lack a team. I think that 20 teams is the size preference for a "premier" league, so adding more is not on the books. But also consider growth in 2nd division league and more.
U so funny :)) I'm in DC I don't want to be SE ---- Neither do I want DCU to move ----but I don't see any hope of them staying. So I would prefer the team to go to a city that really want's a team and has a good fan base, stadium space etc. I will continue to be a fan (but from afar)----maybe out of Washington the Comcast TV coverage will be better.

I agree that the SE needs a team....solution - move DC United to Atlanta - The NE has NE,NY,PA,OH etc. They can afford to lose one team. Put the 20th team in San Diego.
Maybe DC needs to make this a true re-build, although it may be a little early to throw in the towel. Najar , Graye , Barry Rice, Andrew Quinn and Hamid are all "true" rookies. Pontius, Wallace and Barklage are beginning there 2nd year. That's 8 young talents to build on. Why not let them gain experience this year, play them often, while the FO looks for Senior/International talent for the post WC transfer rush? It certainly can't be any worse than it is right now, and giving young talent the experience will help next season (wherever DCU is playing)
and Chris Pontius - 4-6 (hammy)
You are very generous..the truth is we are as bad or probably worse than RBNY 2009) We are without 6 starters (see my earlier post - just lost Jakovic 4-6) At times last week we looked more like Keystone Cops or 3 Stooges on defense, laughable if it was not for the fact we paid to see it, and this is supposed to be a professional team/organization. Still, there my team, and I will continue to support them....until they move to another city, anyway.
Make that 6 ( the complete starting back 4) with the addition of Jakovic 4-6 (broken clavicle)just announced in the Post
Really though, if you saw the game - it was sad to see two teams that have a great history look so raggedy, its not that long ago that opposing fans would be fearful of the Fire or United coming to there stadiums, now its just the opportunity to build up Goal differential..hopefully both will find answers in the coming weeks and turn it around
Manny u are so funny Unfortunately, its true, and yes home and away you can expect bunches of NYRB goals - sigh, so buy them tic's :))
Please...no more articles/reports on DCU - it is soooo depressing for the DC Fans (yes I am one) we will beat NYRB 2009, by having fewer wins this year. Vamos United
Here is my Bandwagon/23 WC for USMNT....based on form Forwards: Jozy & Edson, both big guys, holding forwards, but fast. Gomez as the "poacher" Midfield: Landon, Dempsey, hopefully Charlie, Edu, Bedoya, Torres, Holden, Feilhaber, Bradley Defense: Bocanegra, Onyewu, Spector, Cherundolo, Bornstein, DeMerit, Goodson, Omar Gonzalez GK (1)Howard, (2)Hahnemann, (3)Guzan Thoughts?

"With all due to respect (and it is due, more on that later) to Luke, if Hans is to insist on raiding his former club for talent...why Rodgers? For a side ripe with talent that WILL make an impact next season in League One, why opt for a player who has struggled at times this season and who our own chairman has admitted he would only have a cameo role next year?" http://www.nottscounty-mad.co.uk/news/tmnw/farewell_to_luke_rodgers_518824/index.shtml Read on Red Bulls.......this is not a good deal for NY
I stand corrected - no offense to AVI Creditor - well written and I am agreement with the assessment
Totally agree with Ives assessment...but it sure sets up some fun games - v DCU and NYRB - and the chance of some real nut crunching rivalries. :)
