I believe EJ was actually injured for this one.

Steve,

Thanks for the updates on our boys around the globe.

Question: Jozy seems to have found a good spot and is improving his play at Villarreal. But, I'm more than concerned about what's going on with Freddy, Edu, and DaMarcus.

What's going on in France and Scotland and why aren't these guys getting the minutes that many of us would like to see or think they may deserve ( or at least hope they deserve ).

Good to see a few non-GK, non-D Americans go the full 90 for their clubs. May I use "full 90" or is that elitist soccer speak like "nil." -)

Santos' New Mexico-born and raised (but Mexico-capped) Edgar Castillo scored a big goal yesterday in the Mexican semifinals at Toluca. The goal opened the score and ended a record goal-less streak which was over 700 minutes for Toluca's keeper Cristante and his defense. Unfortunately for Santos their lead only lasted about 2 minutes before Toluca scored off short corner kick and then scored another to win 2-1 and face Cruz Azul in the liguilla finals.

The highlight doesn't show the whole sequence but Castillo made a nice run/dribble in from the left flank before the wall pass combo with Luduena:

It's the first goal in the right hand column.

The comment I saw on this weekend's 7-1 thrashing of Hamilton was something along the lines of "The ineffective Beasley was substituted after 72 minutes..." (paraphrased, ignore the # of minutes). Being described as ineffective in a game your side won by six goals is less than flattering--Beasley just isn't impressing over there right now.

Nope I-270 you gotta use the Nike trademarked Total 90 to keep yourself out of my eurosnob book.
I like saying zip. It's more UhhhmeriCan.
