Convey and Gambians

*According to a source close to Bobby Convey, paperwork is the only obstacle standing between the former D.C. United midfielder's return to MLS and his introduction as the newest member of the San Jose Earthquakes. Reading, Convey's English club the past 4 1/2 years, formally released him today.

*New England's Kenny Mansally and Sainey Nyassi were called up to the Gambian national team for Wednesday's friendly against Gabon in Paris.

Eh, I want no parts of Bobby in a United jersey.

alecw81, that's a gruesome way of phrasing it.

Darn, when I saw the headline I thought it might be something weird like Convey signing with a team in Gambia.

Happy Friday!

I thought it was Convey and the Gambinos. A struggling US mid-fielder attempts a comeback, only to run afoul of the Mafia. He agrees to testify against them, is placed in the Witness Protection program, and sent where no-one will notice him - to the San Jose Earthquakes.

Wow, 3 years ago Convey was the best-rated outfield player in the Championship, on a side that won the league going away. Now, he can't buy a minute in an international league. San Jose won't get you back on the National Team.

I see this as another in a long line of failed former internationals coming back to MLS for one more payday. Injury outweighs potential. Just ask John O'Brien, Claudio Reyna and Tony Sanneh.

Thx,

Jay!

@ Jay,

Why do you think San Jose is not a way to get on the national team? Landon Donovan and Brian Ching both seem to be doing okay.

Thx,

So at 25 and a few injuries in England and he's done and can't return to form?

Please.

Exhibit A) Ben Olsen
Exhibit B) Kenny Cooper

Maybe I totally missed this, but has the MNT roster for the Mexico game been released yet?

His post was fine the way it was...

Steve, they're messing with you. Now your listing on the columns and blogs page is "Content not allowed in prolog".

And "sponsored by:" still pops in periodically.

I think the tech guys must hate soccer.

@seahawkdad: it happens all the time, just ignore it and come back later...

For all the Convey haters on this blog, the feeling isn't shared everywhere. Tons of well wishes and thanks expressed below.

@seahawkdad: Use Adblock. It may clean up some of those "sponsored by" links.

@SportzNutu21: Thanks

The word is that Bobby's going to be living in San Jose at Lew Wolf's house and dating his daughter.
