Alcantara to San Jose?

The Insider told you yesterday that second-year left back Mike Zaher, dropped by D.C. United, is hoping to earn a roster spot with San Jose. Now we are hearing that Cuban forward Reinier Alcantara, who sought asylum during the national team's stay in Washington last fall and was released by Chivas USA a few weeks ago, will join the Earthquakes for a trial starting tomorrow. He just completed workouts with USL1 Charleston and has attracted interest from other second-division clubs.

Hey, here's a link to KP's Q&A over on DC United's site. He actually answered some excellent questions, and came away reading the thing feeling a lot better about the direction of the club.
He shut me down on the 3rd jersey, but he said he liked my idea about sanctioned bike parking at RFK! This transparency stuff they seem to be implementing really makes me believe they meant it when they apologized to the Fans after last season. Check it out:-)

Thanks for the link DadRyan. Sorry about the 3rd jersey.

Marylanders: find your elected reps here and urge them to support a stadium in Prince Georges Co.

Perfect Sunday morning links for coffee sipping. March is coming in like a lion in a lot of ways: snow storm; Freedom first practice/training this morning (probably indoors) with all players reporting in; DCU scrimmage Tuesday; K. Payne all smiles and positive. I wish someone would have asked him what is his preferred method for going ballistic in the locker room and why? He would have deftly deflected that one with a positive (a Fenty punching bag is probably stored in the elephant room).

I will look forward to spending my spare money in the MD suburbs (and less/zero on DC short-sighted, bonehead politicos). Might even ride a bike there once or twice just for DRyan.

Looking forward to DCU being en fuego in 2009!

Yes, thanks for the link DadRyan. I'm starting to like this Kevin Payne fellow.

""plus some more high tech ideas we have, such as lasers and so forth, to make the experience at our stadium unique. ""

Please drop the high tech laser idea. Gimmicks won't sell seats---Championships will.

""Part two, we plan a very claustrophobic feel – roof covering all seats and tuned to keep sound in…steep seating sections…seats very close the field"

Keep this theme. It will be super imposing once the supporters groups get rolling. La Norte will have a proper home behind the goal once more too!

And as long as those premium "club seats" and Corporate boxes are out of the way of the rest of us, great. There's no sitting in football!!!!

Anybody catch that second Aston Villa goal? Wow. If they can get the 3 points, Stoke City just scored, do they get them in the Champions League next year?

Sorry, so much for 3 from this game for Villa. Nice comeback for Stoke. Too bad for Villa and Friedel, but I still think they'll beat Arsenal out of a Champions League spot.

Don't look now but Marcelo Gallardo just entered the game for River Plate as they are down 5-1 to San Lorenzo. Looks like he's added some extra weight.

Gallardo just came in for River. His debut and River's losing 5-1.

Gallardo is wearing #10.
