USA Yellow Cards, Revs Injuries

An update from the U.S. Soccer Federation: Yellow cards do not carry over into the second stage of the Confederations Cup, which means Michael Bradley, Jonathan Bornstein, Oguchi Onyewu and Jonathan Spector are not at risk of missing Sunday's final or third-place match. Unless, of course, they receive a red card tomorrow against Spain.

In preparation for tomorrow night's SuperLiga home match against Kansas City, New England's official injury list continues to grow: D Kevin Alston is doubtful with hamstring tightness, while D Chris Albright (knee surgery), D Gabriel Badilla (bulging disk), MF Mauricio Castro (hamstring strain), MF Shalrie Joseph (knee cartilage defect), MF-F Steve Ralston (hamstring strain) and F Taylor Twellman (neck/concussive symptoms) are out.

Any way we can get some Spaniards suspended for Round 2? Say...Torres, Villa, Silva, Xavi, Fabregas, Puyol, Casillas....give the US a fighting chance.

Anyone going to be at Summers tomorrow?

This is bad news for New England... But in a way, good news for DC. NE will be busy playing all their reserves in MLS and Superliga matches - and if luck be in our favor, New England will not care about the Open Cup round (if both teams advance). I know NE is currently looking at an older greek striker - but its time for Nicol's young africans to step it up.

Do you mean Edgaras Jankauskas? He's Lithuanian. He's also like 6'5", if memory serves. The cadre of African strikers at Nicol's disposal are all pretty small (I think Mansally might be 5'11", and he's not exactly a powerhouse), and they are dying for someone to hold the ball up, so it might be a good fit.


You know how kids come to games in their full uniform, even down to the shinguards? In Foxboro, those kids will be the bench for the Revs pretty soon.

... but Kraft still won't let them go to Europe, even on vacation with their parents.

I can see those negotiations now:

"OK, sure, he's only 8 years old, but he's already good enough to make our bench! I won't sell for anything less than $50 million."

I should enter this in my autotext, but...well in, 270.
