Perry Kitchen will very quickly become a DCU fan favorite. This is a young talent with tremendous upside who based on the assessment(s) of Gen. ADIDAS, MLS leadership, U-20 mgt., & overseas scouts is an impact player on and off the pitch. Perry Kitchen is the leader of his USMNT U-20 side. Caleb Porter (Akron Head Coach) raves about PK's talents, leadership & soccer mind.
In addition Chris Korb has the ability (skill-set) to immediately play solid outside defender/man marking defense. A great role player who will drive DCU opponents (forwards) crazy with his tenacious defending, marking them all over the field. Plus he can distribute very well getting the ball to the DCU creative play makers... who those DCU players are right now I don't know but you get the idea.
I just purchased my DCU season tix just to see Perry Kitchen play.
It really is Caleb Porter's soccer world & we just live in it - Akron has 5 of the top 8 picks drafted plus the Hermann Trophy winner & 4 players in MLS already (big) contributing see. Zakuani, Bunbury, Zemanski, B. Gavin...
Shouldn't Caleb Porter be managing the U-20 program TODAY ?! vs. T. Rongen. he is a soccer genius w/a very desirable approach to the game i.e. Total Futbol-possession & he can relate to today's players very well maximizing their productivity. US Soccer needs to consider this unique coaching talent ASAP

It's beginning to look like Edu is the Jermaine Jones we've always been looking for. Playing him in defense makes NO SENSE.

Edu eludes traffic cones. Nice finish though.

Keeper looked like he was coming out afterward to KILL his back line. Wonder what the first three goals were like. Anyway, nice lateral touch past the last cone.

That's it, I'm off for a trial with Hamilton. And yes, I think I could mark better than that crew.

Ok, so I might have to tug on his jersey to stop Edu, but it's all fair if the ref doesn't see it.

Nice left footed shot though!

The mis-usage of Edu (for Clark) at the World Cup was Bob Bradley's downfall...

@OurGentlemenOfTheHighwayExit (I-270): Note that Edu landed on his kicking foot, providing the pace to slip it near post. A great piece of teaching video for U-9s.

@JkR, JofA-ish, and other Atlantans: How 'bout them STEELERS!

Yeah, being there in person, that one hurt tonight.

But, bright sides: 6 or so weeks from Charleston, and just a couple more after that til the Silverbacks return! And USA-Paraguay.

Yea, I've genuinely ended up in a position where I care much more about my soccer teams than any other.

Welcome to the club Jacob.

Ahem. JkR-'s tribal people are from west / central Pa. Steeler fans for 3 generations. For Christmas, I received the $300 Mitchell & Ness Franco Harris throwback jersey, proudly worn today with Terrible Towel jauntily tucked into the collar.

I'm not sure what I've said to indicate any connection to Atlanta; good manners will preclude my opinion of that fair city.

Or did I mis-underestimate your meaning...?

Glad I was in Pittsburgh this weekend :)

Glad to see Edu back and playing well. He had a knee injury for the past month or so, didn't he?

Sorry, JkR... I may have confused you with Kev.

Reignking: did you wear your Vick jersey this weekend? Or were you off-grid as Chuck Finley?

White Collar back, on Tuesday. And I just got hooked on Psych. Had no idea how funny that show was.

Mrs. 270 will be happy to hear that White Collar is back. I fell waaaay behind on Burn Notice, so didn't watch this season. I can wait for it to hit Netflix. Not sure what this has to do with soccer.
