Colorado Loses Gargan

Dan Gargan, a third-year defender from Georgetown who started 26 games the past two seasons, has a torn ACL and expects to undergo surgery soon. Gargan, a right back who had just returned from a shoulder injury, suffered the knee tear Thursday night against the Revolution. According to his former college coach, Keith Tabatznik, Gargan will get a second opinion and then decide who will perform the operation. "He is arguably the toughest player I coached, so I am sure he will be back sooner rather than later," Tabatznik said.

"Gargan for Namoff"


Dear God please tell me you're joking.

Did anyone else notice that when Sanneh came on for Gargan on Thursday that Colorado had an entire United alumni backline?

There might be 500 people in KC tonight for KC-NE. And they should all get their money back...0-0 at the 60' mark.

DC fans will be happy to note that Twellman just got a free kick to the man region.

Someone signed Sanneh? Learn something new every day...

Hey Goff,

Any news on Kasey Keller? He appears to be a free agent, I guess just milling about the castle. I guess RSL could still sign him, but you'd think if he wasn't waiting for that, there are dozens of clubs around the world that would love to have (an admitedly somewhat past his prime) world class keeper.

Goff,

What's the outlook for the Wednesday night line up? How is Gros doing? I hate to say it but maybe he needs to leave the game, how many concussions can your body take before becoming a vegetable?

Man City is looking for a veteran keeper to hold the fort until their young keepers are ready for prime time. How about KK?

Posted by: New England Guy | August 20, 2007 9:08 AM | Report abuse

Kasper's performance in the Derby seems to indicate that he's almost ready for primetime. A few mental lapses, but well played throughout.

I do agree that a veteran keeper available is important, though. It'll steady his nerves and give him someone to work under.

US plays Tajikistan at 7 tonight in the u-17 World Cup...

The US already played Tajikstan.

Adu's coached already canned.

You know, I saw the time was 7 EST, and I didn't know if it was this morning or this afternoon -- but there was no score listed.

Ah yes, fifa.com has the results listed:

US loses 3-4.

Hi Steven,

The French press is reporting that Denilson has signed with FC Dallas. Can you confirm this?

Thanks for all the great work.

Hard worker but just an average MLS player at best. The A-League may be calling soon.

I hope Gargan can come back from this. It's a tough time for him to get an injury as he was just starting to show he is capable of being a so-so player in the MLS. This is his last year of Dev eligibility.

Posted by: Allen | August 20, 2007 4:08 PM | Report abuse

gargan is on a full roster contract after 2 seasons as developmental. They like him there. He is a player (as long as he gets back healthy) that can play a right back role for many years. I wouldn't use the erm "so-so" for him... just a solid right back.
