How the Hellen Keller did Moenchengladbach win 6-3 with Michael Bradley not find the net in 90 min.s

Haha, Bayern Munich already not in first place.

Fire Helmot (Is that BM's coach) Haha, I said BM!

So 7 minutes combined for, Edu, Altidore, and Onyewu? Wonderful.

I don't understand why players think it's a good idea to move to a big club where they will never play. Is it because agents are getting in their ear and telling them that a fatter paycheck right now is better than playing regularly for a smaller club?

It might be better for the agent financially, and for the player's bank account, at least in the short term. But rotting on the bench isn't going to help the player get better, no matter how big the club, and it will hurt their career in the long run.

I'm surprised Guzan wasn't on your short-list. Talk about someone wasting the best years of his career as a backup keeper to Friedel. At least in MLS he would be starting and gaining experience (especially if he plays for DCU!).

It's also not looking so great for Dempsey under Hughes. He only came on after it appeared Zamora was injured. Houston is looking for a DP and Dempsey would fit in perfect in their lineup, not to mention he's a native Texan.

Man, there are several players on that DNP list that would look fantastic in Black and Red. Even if it was just a loan to get them playing time.

Where's my match night thread?

What is the latest on Freddy Adu?

I wouldn't freek out re Dempsey's playing time at this point. Even under Roy, Clint would start a bunch of games in a row and then be on the bench for a bunch in a row.

When MB joined Mönchengladbach, they were on the verge of relegation. They then moved out of the relegation zone, and now, 1.5 yrs later, are a solid mid-table Bundesliga team. Which obviously is not solely to the credit of MB, but still a handsome addition to his resume.

I'm surprised no one noticed that Spector picked right up where he left off for WHU last season by directly giving up two of ManU's three goals.

Thx,

Jay!
