Tuesday kickaround

*Lyon seeks its first appearance in the UEFA Champions League final, needing to overcome a 1-0 deficit to Bayern Munich in the second leg at home (2:30 p.m. ET, Comcast SportsNet/DC, Fox Sports Net, Fox Sports Espanol). Read a preview, vote in a poll.

*With slightly less fanfare, MLS's U.S. Open Cup qualifying continues tonight with a preliminary-round match between the New York Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union at Red Bull Arena.

*The Houston Dynamo, which lost midfielders Stuart Holden and Ricardo Clark to European dreams in the offseason, will be without emerging star Geoff Cameron for the remainder of the season.

*Additional comment from the Revolution on midfielder Shalrie Joseph's leave of absence.

*If you are heading to South Africa for the World Cup, the U.S. Soccer Federation has an online resource center to prepare for your trip.

*Along with almost every West Ham teammate, American defender Jonathan Spector is apparently on the market.

*In the third division tonight, Real Maryland (1-0-1), now featuring former Los Angeles Galaxy prospect Israel Sesay, hosts the Charleston Battery (1-0-1) at Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville.

For today's Copa Libertadores on TV.....

Shalrie Joseph's leave of absence is baffling. Hope everything is OK with him.

Cue the wild speculation by people who know nothing.

My mfls fantasy side continues it's run of bad luck with Shalrie and Cameron being taken out of the picture. Wonder what conspiracy theory or condemnation will be coming to light from Gene_Wells in this regard... Maybe if I apologize and pray to Soccer Jesus I'll be able to turn it around.

Anyone have a word on the RB/PU providing a video feed for the qualifier tonight?

Could United pick up Spector?

He's only 24, doubt he's ready to retire to MLS. Some club will pay him a good amount of cash to stay in England.

Dude, give him DP scrill. He's bound to want to play for Dead End United! ;)

DrBeaker: Big Soccer would be out of business if wild speculation by people who know nothing didn't exist..

Wild Speculation fuels whole economies...

Is the Real Maryland game at 7 or 7:30pm? The USL site says 7:30 but RM's site says 7pm. Has anyone ever been to these games? What is the experience like? Are kids welcome? Is it worth the money?

Thanks

Luis

I think Gene Wells is in Europe looking into the Ribery thing. "Hey Frank, when you went to her 18th birthday party, did that give you any clues regarding her age?"

Would love Spector at DC United!

DCU sign spector. promise him regular time and an annual hammy injury.

Is it possible to have a "sex scandal" in France? I thought that is an everyday... ummm... affair.

I-270Exit1: no yer confused it's an everday affair in the DNC and GOP.

@ Luis,

Definitely a kid friendly environment. Games have been about what I expected...a little lower quality than MLS but generally very competitive and decent quality. Weather should be good.

As to Joseph, I just figured he didn't want to play for NE anymore.

Fun matches tonight in the Libertadores, although Chivas and Estudiantes are sand bagging it, bringing in youngin's to play for different reasons.

Thanks teo_68

Steve's Twitter says both Allsop and Julius James are working out on the side in practice today, rather than with the team....


OY...

Posted by: JkR- | April 27, 2010 11:43 AM | Report abuse

Play Allsop tomorrow or drop the dead weight. He needs to prove himself....

Reminded with the Spector Hammy joke that I noticed one Chivas USA had at least three potential starters out on Saturday night due to hamstring injuries. Took some notice when the guys calling the game kept talking about it. DCU isn't the only team out there with troubled hams.

Through the allocation process, where there are something like 14 teams ahead of DC, unless they trade for an allocation spot... but what do they really have to trade?
