Also: Washington Redskins offense--90 minutes in the St. Louis Red Zone--only nine points. Lord, give me strength!

What is up with Eddie Johnson? Any info on his situation with fulham?

Posted by: BolivianDCFan | September 20, 2009 4:32 PM | Report abuse

I think the situation with EJ is that he isn't very good.

EJ scored the tying goal in a reserve game for Fulham. He seems to be hanging on the fringes of the first team.

Is it just me, or do the results get progressively worse as we move down the list. Are our forwards just that bad, or is it the teams they play on?

Also, I still think Onjewu is learning from the sidelines, and showing it in national team games. When the schedule gets crowded and/or Nesta gets injured, he'll see time.

Tyrel Lacey played 90 minutes in goal for FC Lyn is their loss to Perkins and Valerenga. He's been the starter for the relegation bound club since his arrival.

If you've seen Gooch play those friendlies with AC Milan while they were here, then you'd understand why he's not on the field. He's not going to start just because he is Gooch. He needs to be better than what they have to start.

I think its time for Freddy to eat some humble pie and return to MLS. He keeps on getting loaned out to lower and lower level clubs, and keeps not playing. Of course at this rate he may end up getting loaned to an MLS club anyway.

Gooch is way down in the pecking order. It's got nothing to do with his Italian or lack of it. As Charisma_Man pointed out, he didn't particularly impress in friendlies. Nesta will play if he's fit because he's one of the best defenders in the world. Thiago Silva was being rested against Bologna (there's a midweek game against Udinese), but otherwise he'll partner Nesta because he's skilful and fast. Kaladze has developed a good understanding with Nesta over the years. Gooch will probably be stuck with Coppa Italia games unless someone gets injured.

Re Gooch and PT: Saw an article in a Brazilian paper this weekend about how Thiago Silva had been praised by Baresi as one of the best central defenders in Europe. Just goes to show how tough the competition is for the Gooch.
