Just incase so it doesnt get missed:

Hey goff, just wondering if you got word of ex' sueno MLS FC Dallas winner Gabriel Funes (rogelio funes in argentina) getting signifigant playing time after going back to argentina to play with river?

Any idea of his status as a citizen/ his parents and his ability to maybe gain citizenship if he wanted to for the USA?

Here's an interview with him, where with absences of players is giving him and other younger players ample playing time. This kid can be the next big thing.

From US HS play, to subbing in for river plate!! WOW!

So if Wake Forest allowed their top midfielder to transfer to Georgia, would they be giving that 'dog a Bone?

Nice story on Diego Restrepo today...too bad he doesn't even get a sniff at All-American. Maybe he made the 'All-Colombian' team. In fact every College Cup team got 3 players named among the 3 AA teams...except UVa.

just judging by last names -- admittedly, a poor way to establish facts -- there are at least nine guys of African heritage on this list.

Hey DCU, buy a plane ticket to West Africa! Start in Nigeria and work your way west. Do a "Sueno MLS" style competition if you have to ("Mafarki MLS" in Hausa).

agreed, but looking at the first team selections, it's easy to see why he transferred from South Florida.

Wow. Not a player from SMU on the list. At least our football team made a bowl this year.

Thx,

Jay!

No one from American University :(

Lacking all sense of humor -

George doesn't have a men's soccer team.
Attinella beat him for the job early last year.
SMU were horrible
AU struggled

No one from Wright State (an early Greg Andrulis coaching spot) either.

And at the risk of repeating myself (okay, copied from a previous thread):

Let me be the first to wish a Happy Hanukkah to Goff and all the Jewish Insiders.

It's the most wonderful time of year,
We're running mad with Christmas cheer;
Hey, what's troubling you, my friend?
It's not fair if you're Jewish, Jewish (not fair if you're Jewish, Jewish)!
Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay
You realize that Christmas ain't the only holiday! (oy!)

Bunbury wins the Hermann

Posted by: J_S_F | December 11, 2009 2:44 PM | Report abuse

Absolutely thrilled to see a Bucknellian (O'Brien) having done so well. He was one of the 15 on the Hermann shortlist as well. Big time stuff for a smaller program.

We do need a striker :) Nah, i love Raul but i don't seem him leaving Real just yet (if ever). Plus he's not exactly the hard working type. More naturally talented than anything. Still a classy finisher though, but i dont see him going anywhere but NY (for the nightlife).

Posted by: Brian76 | December 11, 2009 3:12 PM | Report abuse

That's a pretty good bet. I think Akpan will be discounted because he plays in the Ivy League. Bone's stats suggest he had a bit of an off-year, though it couldn't have been too bad if he's a finalist for the award. With Bunbury being coveted by MLS, this is probably the year to give it to him -- plus, he's not playing at Wake, where he'd be surrounded by other big-name talent.

As I asked last night, I'm wondering if Porter would work to add Bunbury to United, including trading up.

How unsavory. I just got Facebook reminder to vote for "Soccer By Ives" as my favorite soccer blog.

Not bloody likely.

O'Hara will collect the Hermann to go along with her NCAA scoring title . . . and her red card in the NCAA final.

Zzzzzzzz.
College Soccer?
Got any WPS news?

You gotta think Tobin Heath wins that one.

Posted by: UnitedDemon | December 11, 2009 4:08 PM | Report abuse

Tobin won't win. O'Hara led the nation in goals, led her team to an undefeated season, played every game. Even as a playmaker, O'Hara has more assists.

Trust me on this one, OWNTF: Heath can play. She will be a mainstay with the WNT. Hope the Freedom get her.

I don't know whether Goff or anyone else has posted information on the women's All-Americans, so here goes (again, 12 laureates at each level):
