What is up with Freedy Adu? No PT anywhere....time for him to come back to MLS..eat some humble pie, and re-boot.

So many of our guys on the losing end of things this weekend. Anybody see how Dempsey did against Man U? 72 minutes against that team is a good sign.

Also bummed to see no minutes for Adu.

That's weird. Pachuca beaten by a team we overcame at home? I know it's was a friendly, and there is no transitive property in sports, but still...

Santos fielded there reserves - they are having a cracking season in the Clausura, topping Group 3 and third overall..United might not have fared so well against there first team/or in competition.

Mr. Goff - why no Jermaine Jones on your list (of walking wounded)

Juryen har kåret Goodson til dagens Startspiller.

Bob Bradley in attendance for Start's match today and Goodson was named Start's "Man of the Match" for their win.

Five comments before someone complained about the exclusion criteria. It usually doesn't take that long.

Sorry (I-270) new here - I'll try harder to get the post done before making any comments

LA Galaxy MF David Beckham has torn his Achilles tendon while on loan to Milan, putting his club career in doubt and possibly missing the World Cup.

Thx,

Herculez Gomez nets yet another for Puebla.

Posted by: BooThisMan | March 14, 2010 10:03 PM | Report abuse

Herc is the 3rd leading scorer in the Mexican league (6 goals in 10 games ties him w several other players). Bradley got a look at him back in that Copa America B team that did poorly in Venezuela.

He's no Lionel Messi but if Bradley is looking for a speedy poacher to fill in for injured Davies he could do worse than Gomez. Maybe Bradley can give some guys a fresh look in those final 2 friendlies and delay announcing the final roster for a few weeks.
