    Zach Thornton Update

    [FONT=Verdana,Sans-serif]Veteran Goalkeeper Thornton Returns to Red Bulls
    Jan 17, 1:47 PM (ET) [​IMG][FONT=Verdana,Sans-Serif]Email this Story[/FONT]
    [FONT=verdana,sans-serif]SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) -Former MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Zach Thornton has signed with the New York Red Bulls.

    Thornton, who played one game with the Colorado Rapids last season before being waived, will be returning to the New York area for a second stint. He played two seasons with the MetroStars, who were renamed the Red Bulls after the team was sold. "We are excited to bring Zach into our squad as we head into the preseason," Red Bulls sporting director Jeff Agoos said Thursday. "With his experience, he will immediately bring depth to the goalkeeper position."

    SAINT PAUL, Minn. (Thursday, January 17, 2008) – The Minnesota Thunder announced today that is has signed forward Luchi Gonzalez to a three year contract, pending US Soccer approval. Gonzalez, the former sixth overall pick in the 2002 Major League Soccer draft, brings international, MLS, and USL First Division experience to the Thunder.



    “Luchi is a player I have long admired,” said Thunder head coach Amos Magee. “ We have tried on several occasions to get him and believe that he is a payer that will make a major impact for the Thunder. Luchi is quick, explosive and will become a fan favorite here in Minnesota immediately."

    Why Cancela? He was a solid player, and would have performed well given the opputunity. Although he couldn't play the full 90-I feel he could have been a solid contributer.

    So how much do we have free in our salary cap? 500K less/more?

    I have a slight update: Cancela may get his contract negotiated ... so we may see him back.

    I'm not sure about Niko.

    Former Rapids GK coach ended up at Chivas USA.

    Many equate Bouna's success to working with Percovich. I personally know Clavijo was sad to see him leave the Rapids.

    Junior Agogo is doing very well for Nottingham Forest these days. I think Forest are a team who've had a fair few ex-MLS players actually. Ben Olsen, Junior Agogo, Stern John, Richard Gough, John Harkes, Ian Woan. We tried to sign Brad Friedal too.

    Was Agogo well thought of by Rapids fans?

    I was a huge Agogo fan and have tried to keep tabs on him since he left. He would always take time to talk to the fans and would even give out his jersey. I have one of them hanging in my closet. I also saw that he was called into the Ghana team for the ACN.

    Cool, glad he was well thought of. Agogo was out injured here for a while last season and there was a rumour floating about that this injury was a smokescreen. ALLEGEDLY, the manager had told him to go on a break until the end of the season to sort out a gambling and drink addiction that he had. It all sounded a bit off to me though.

    Yeah, he's gone to the ACN, much to the annoyance of Forest fans. He's gone and Nathan Tyson is out injured. We're a bit buggered upfront...hence us losing 2-1 to Swindon today. Arse.

    A similar allegation floated around the Rapids, though it's only an allegation. Training habits were a suggested reason (euphemism?) for his expendability. He was very promising in my opinion. Good pace. And, he kept his shots low - a huge problem in MLS.

    Allegedly he had some issues with partying here in Denver too. So it may not be all that off.
