Friday Kickaround

*To relive the pomp and circumstance, glory and drama of the one and only MLS All-Star Game, click here for video highlights.

*Players on the move:

-- Robbie Russell from Denmark to Utah.

-- Forward Kei Kamara goes from San Jose to Houston.

-- Lots of action in Big D. As we told you last week, Dallas star Kenny Cooper may be getting closer to Rosenborg [corrected: brain freeze]. Meantime, FCD midfielder Juan Toja is in negotiations with Steaua Bucharest. I hear that midfielder Arturo Alvarez is not happy and that the club might be eyeing Bruno Guarda, the Brazilian midfielder who played for FCD Coach Schellas Hyndman at SMU and was acquired by Colorado in a special lottery this week. As you probably know by now, midfielder Dax McCarty has been called up to the USA Olympic team to replace injured RSL defender Nathan Sturgis.

-- Aston Villa publicly acknowledges its pursuit of Brad Friedel and prepares for Brad Guzan's work permit hearing next Friday.

*Crystal Palace Baltimore, a second-year USL2 club, has added former Georgetown coach and Bermuda assistant Keith Tabatznik and ex-Johns Hopkins coach Matt Smith to its scouting department.

*The defending champion Washington Freedom (11-1-2) opens the W-League playoffs at 5 p.m. today in Atlanta against Charlotte (11-2-1).

*MLS on Sunday:
New York (5-6-6) at San Jose (3-9-5), 3 p.m. ET (Telefutura)
Los Angeles (6-6-5) at Dallas (4-6-7), 7
Chicago (7-5-4) at Kansas City (5-5-6), 8
Columbus (8-5-4) at Colorado (6-8-3), 9:30
