Before the Weekend Arrives.....

.....a few things to pass along:

*For those who understand Polish, here is a follow-up story about DCU's pursuit of Bortosz Bosacki. As we reported, Soehn and Kasper were in attendance at his game the other night. They had planned to meet with Bosacki, but he left the game early with an illness. There was some discussion with the club. It appears to be a longshot, but now that DCU has made contact in person, we'll have to see how things unfold leading up to the re-opening of the June 15 international window.

*My man Jon DeNunzio (Post soccer editor) has put together a list of the top pay increases and pay cuts in MLS:
