DCU, Rimando, Valencia, England, Bradley, USA

*As expected, D.C. United has signed defender Lyle Adams to a developmental contract. The former Wake Forest player was drafted last year but explored European options before joining second-division Austin. "He is a young player with good potential, who will add quality depth to our backline," GM Dave Kasper said of the 6-foot-1 Adams, who has played centrally but is projected as an outside back.

*I received a tip that Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando has attracted interest from a Mexican club (not sure which one). With understudy Chris Seitz now in Philadelphia, don't expect Rimando, 30, to leave anytime soon. Perhaps down the road? (Rimando has Mexican and Filipino roots.)

*The Philadelphia Union announced its friendly with Valencia this summer. The date has yet to be finalized. DCU is also in negotiations to play the Spanish club.

*In a major World Cup tuneup, England will play Mexico on May 24 at Wembley.

*With Clint Dempsey back in service, USA Coach Bob Bradley is scheduled to attend Fulham's Europa League match against Juventus on Thursday in London. He visited Norway (Clarence Goodson) and Sweden (Alejandro Bedoya) over the weekend.

*The USA-Germany women's friendly we've been telling you about is now set: May 22 at Cleveland Browns Stadium. ESPN2 will show it live.

That headline reads like a Carnak joke.

So those in Cleveland will actually get to see the home team win for once?

Me thinks in-season friendlies (is that spelt right)are STOOPID! I see no compelling reason to watch a match that doesn't matter. Where's the drama? Better not be any injuries.

The owners will make some money but they won't get any of mine.

What Bradley didn't visit the infamous Ryan Miller while in Sweeden?

Don't worry, DCU won't be in-season.

The US women have had no games recently so I guess it will be good to see them play.

Was the Algarve Cup that long ago for you or do you mean televised games?
