Soehn Speaks

On the improving health of the roster.....

"We're getting there. Some guys have had limited training this week. Last year I might not have made the same decisions [about the game-day roster] but this year you can be careful about rushing guys back. We've got a deeper team, for sure."

On Houston without Dwayne De Rosario.....

"There are not many De Rosarios in our league. He was a good player and he is going to be missed in so many fashions for them. In the process, they've tried Stuart [Holden] and they've tried Brad Davis, who offer different qualities than De Rosario did. So you really just focus on how they play now, who can play there and how you can make it hard for them to be successful. Their mentality of how they play, their formation, their shape, a lot of that stays the same. For the most part, it's the same core of guys and the same mentality of what they try to accomplish."

Soehn's thoughts on Louis Crayton are available on the continuation of this thread.....

"He is getting better. His injury is an issue I think he was over last week. It's his sharpness, and he's getting better. He has worked hard the last two weeks. He might say he is 150 percent fit -- he always tends to lean high -- and I hope he is 100 percent fit."

Dunno which is better -- one really long post with a lot of information, or a bunch of staccato, short-and-sweet ones.

Either way, keep 'em coming! :-)

There's only one De Rosario in MLS -- in terms of being a North American. He's not Schelotto, but he's still one of the best players in the league. He has a flair and understanding that I don't see in other North Americans. It continues to baffle me that he's still stuck in MLS. At least, he gets to represent a Canadian team now. The Dynamo are much less imposing without him.

I see DeRo a lot like Gomez. They're both very gritty players that have a great eye for goal.

Scholetto is in a whole other category all together.

OK -- everybody, on 3:

1-2-3....Scholetto is in a whole other category all together.

Shirley, you can't be serious.

Anyone notice Schletto and Moreno jawing at each other during the 20 minutes of the RSL/CLB game the other night?
