How come the loan of Wells to Adelaide was never publicized?

If Fred had scored on a 1v1 with the keeper, I would have been upset, since he can never finish those off for us. He's got like 1 or 2 goals out of, conservative estimate, 20 1v1s in his time here. It's my only real complaint about him.

Don't you mean Wells to Wellington? After all, it was Wellington that gave up the six goals.

Thx,

Jay!

Do they use bigger goals in Australia than we do in DC?

Just wondering...

Here's the thing: in Australia, the goals are four tall vertical sticks on each end of the pitch. If you kick it between the tallest ones in the middle, that's six points...if you kick it between the others, it's only a point.

...wait, what's that you say? That's Australian rules? Well, they're playing football in Australia, right?

Haha yes I did Jay, guess I'm living in an alternate universe where Wells is actually a decent keeper.

It was publicized on the Insider. Is there any other source of information you need? After my personal emails, it's the first stop in the morning (after the morning constitutional, of course).

Most ever minutes played in a season! that's impressive. He beat Troy by 2 minutes lol

Ha, sorry, insomnia induced missed sarcasm. Very funny Wells/PEddy post. Thought you meant Fred.

Congrats to Simms, hopefully he'll continue his steadfast play and even score a few goals next year. (Work on your long range stuff, Clyde!!)

Any word on Namoff?

"the start of training camp in six weeks"

like the sound of that

Posted by: Pedalada | December 8, 2008 9:06 PM | Report abuse

That would be re-signed. Not resigned. Very different meanings.

Posted by: fischy | December 9, 2008 1:36 AM | Report abuse

Fischy: depends on how badly Simms wanted to go to Europe, don't it?
