    With all the negative posting on the forum lately, I'd thought I would try and brighten it up by sharing this video I made for the upcoming season. ;) Funny thing about going through all the clips and including the goals was that it almost became a highlight video for DeRo and Pontius. So for the first time I'm worried about what's going to happen this year and where the goals will come from. I didn't want to include goals from guys that are no longer on the team.

    Anyway, I hope you all enjoy.

    Why do I feel like I've heard that song before?

    Is it something I should know?

    Looks good. But how do I hate slapping a league logo in the number. Is it like a copyright thing?

    Its so they can have OFFICIAL lettering and such.
    fairly common practice and helps the league make a bit more money with jersey customization

    I'm tired of "new beginnings" every two years. Can we just once continue and reach the next stage. We had a good group of players at the end of last season. Santos, Bosko, Salihi, Najar are all gone and we've brought in no proven quality to replace them. I'm not happy.

    Every year IS ALWAYS a new beginning. That is the fun of it. All teams start with 0 point all over again.

    That is quite true - but what you want is for your team to do their best to position themselves as best they can in the off season to start strong. That is what I mean. I don't want a team blow-up every off season and have nothing of any quality brought in.

    Great video. There is nothing wrong in it.

    The last game in NJ was so spectacular that not even the title would be able to surpass it.

    Me too. But that is something we can think of only AFTER the season. Now, we can speculate, but not more that that.

    We made our moves, other teams did theirs, and I really like what we have done so far. We had a playoff team, we still have a playoff team. I really could not ask for more at this moment.

    What have we done so far? We have some trialists, some rookies - what else?

    We add some bets, that is right, so we need to see how they will develop.

    But we also got Thorrington and Townsend. One could say, it is not much. And I agree...

    However, this already was a good team. Although we lost Najar, we are still in great shape to, at least, go to the playoffs. If some of the new blood explode this year, you could go even farther. And farther, for us, means go all the way. We hit the post last year!

    My point is that this team will be fun to watch. I believe they will deserve our support. They will be contenders. If we are going to win, that is a whole different story.

    I expect us to have a shot to the top-3 in the East again. Once there, it is anyone's ballgame. We have shots at the Open Cup and/or the MLS Cup. And, at the present moment, it is all I can ask for.
