Wow, That is really cool. He is a great guy.
Too bad the USL will be mainly just the PDL by next year. But good for Peter.
And USL-2, for what that's worth ...
Yura started and played the full 90 min with Randers FC today.
They tied 0-0 with the 3rd place team Esbjerg.
Randers FC remains 13 pts behind 10th place (the safe zone) with 9 pts in 19 games (they play a 33 game season I think).
Here's a two-for-one video: Jeff Cunningham says "My name is Freddy Adu."
Highlights from Yura's debut with Randers
Poor guy cant catch a break! He had so many chances. He will do well there. Poor decision to go there though.
I showed the highlight to a person who knows his soccer. He said, "Why didn't he pass it? Instead of firing into the keeper. If he would have passed it, his teammate would have scored." I just laughed.
which highlight was that? all of them that I see he took a shot with nobody else around him (on his team) or there were multiple defenders between him and his teammate... If you are saying he should have passed the one that is at about the 4 minute mark you have to be kidding. There are 3 defenders between Yura and that teammate and they are all within 6 yards of him. He isnt going to get a pass like that off inside the 18 let alone the 6. The shot deflected off the keeper (great save) and off of the post... thats just unlucky
It looks like he will be their attack though, so any scouts that come will see his abilities on offense for sure. From the looks of it they are about a mid level MLS team. yura wont be competing with Findley for scoring/attention either. Not a great move, but not a poor move either IMO (as an RSL fans I think its poor, but as a soccer fan I dont, I fully understand it)
Eskandarian sidelined indefinitely
this may sound bad... but that added a smile to my day, dont know about the rest of you
Mixed feelings here. I originally thought the same as you - couldn't happen to a nicer guy. But any time an injury prematurely ends an athlete's career, it sucks. Unless that athlete were Kobe (rapist) Bryant...
Eksy was the Anti-Carlos Boozer. It was kind of hard to take the fact that he didn't want to be here, but he only expressed that after he was gone. I think he played hard while he was here. Win or lose, he always saluted the fans after the game.
Post-concussive symdrome is a crappy way to lose your soccer career...even for Esky.
Of course, one could point out that getting that 2nd concussion after acting like a complete a$$ after leaving RSL is a bit of cosmic payback...if one is into petty victories...
Looks like Ian found himself a good match...

he was team captain for the game as well
Hopefully Portland works to be a good fit for Ian. However, Ian wasn't the only RSL player in the game. Alex Nimo came on as a sub in the 58th minute. I'd say playing against the majority of Seattle's 1st team is a good match for Alex to get some minutes.
POR: GK Cronin, D Joy, D Danso, D Smith, D Kirk (Thompson, 73), D Keel, M Pore, M Marcelin (Gaudet, 89), M Lopez (Nimo, 54), F Obatola (DeMartin, 62), F Josten (Cameron, 87)
SEA: GK Keller, D Evans, D Marshall (Parke, 45), D Hurtado, D Gonzalez (Wahl, 80), M Souter (Estrada, 60), M Vagenas (King, 74), M Osvaldo, M Zakuani (67, Ianni), F Ljungberg (Levesque, 45), F Montero
POR: Obatola (Josten), 44
Of course, Joy is an EX-RSLer, where as Nimo is actually a RSL player on loan. Big difference.
I understand that. Merely pointing out that he played. Feel free to move the post to the news thread.
The Dr. gets the late winner against Falkirk today
Nik Besagno begins operation rebirth:
Kitsap Pumas sign former No. 1 draft pick Nik Besagno (hahaha)
Good news for Nik is that Kitsap is reportedly moving up to USL2 pro next year so he will go from MLS to PDL to USSF Division 3. Good on ya Nik!
Carey Talley waived by CUSA.
There's not really any more information than that.
Talley had heart, when we didn't have much of anything. I feel for him and wish him luck on the next phase of his life.
