I don't know about you guys, but I'm still trying to get used to seeing this.
God moves in mysterious ways.
Also, Aitor == Mourinho's puppet.
Lionel Messi accused Real Madrid assistant coach Aitor Karanka of being Jose Mourinho's "puppet" in the aftermath of this week's Copa del Rey clasico, according toLos Blancos winger Jose Callejon.
I'm physically hurt by seeing that.
Think this might be my first post in this thread, a great write-up here:
October 10th, 2009 will always be known as The Conor Casey Game
Thirty minutes before the match when the announcement was signaled with high frequency via Twitter, that curse was a very acerbic and swearing “F*cking Conor Casey?” with resignation and defiance.
I have this bookmarked. I read it when I feel sad.
Best. Thread. Ever.
Reread the second one. The friend is going to Hungary.
I am curious what is going to happen to Freeman though. He apparently thinks he is worth a lot more than clubs are thinking he is worth. At this point, I would welcome him back with open arms, as long as it didn't take anything to get his rights back from NE, because I think he is better than Wynne or Mullan at RB.
I would love to have Freeman back but I have sneaky feeling he will be back in Scandinavia -- Norway or Sweden. Their transfer window is open until mid-March, I believe. He performed well in Norway and I'm sure has contacts. But he does have a young child so he and his wife (a former pro that also played in Norway) may not want to make the trek abroad again.
Coked-out hamster (aka Quincy Amarikwa) is on trial with NY. I shudder to think what he'll be like after the addition of a few cans of Red Bull...
Wonder if NY will manage to trade him again and really rub it in our faces that they were able to move him to get something in return, again, while we just waived him.
on a related note, I am always trying to figure out who can take over the coked-out hamster title, but alas I think there is only room in this world for one-coked out hamster.
You'll excuse me if I don't get too upset that the Rapids couldn't find a buyer for a guy who was waived by two teams in the same year (Colorado and TFC) and is going through trials to try to get a contract offer for a 3rd team (NY). Those aren't the guys MLS teams are hot to trade for.
John Spencer and family moving back to the Denver area in the next month.
I know, NY lucked out in picking him up, never signing him, and then Koevermans getting hurt and finding a desperate team in Toronto to trade him to, but if they were to somehow do that again, it would just be one of those, "the soccer gods hate us," type of things. That's all I was trying to say.
I thought some of the stats lovers on here would find this interesting, its a table of stats of all the English League managers from this season, Gary Smith is listed as 36th from 122, average of 1.53 points per game. Not bad, not great. I am sure many will see the irony in the numbers. It doesn't take into account many variables such as budgets, club size etc but, I am sure some folks will find it an interesting read.
Is Stevenage located somewhere particularly exposed to the elements? It seemed like they got a long unplanned break owing to p-p's.
Yeah, England. (Ar ar.) A lot of pitches in League One don't have underground heating elements, so they freeze.
NO! Stevenage is located NE of London in Herefordshire in Eastern England. From London King Cross station a typical train ride is ~30 minutes. It is the driest area in the country. February, the coldest month in Stevenage, has daytime average temperatures of 45 degress with a narrow drop to an average temperature of 34 degrees at night. Of course, like most of England they do not benefit from the warmth of the sun that we do in Colorado.
In general, England is neither a country with harsh, cold winters nor sunny, warm summers. Freezing pitches should not be a major problem but I admit ignorance of this phenomenon. If some do freeze, unfreezing them could be a problem due to narrow daytime averages/nighttime averages and limited sun.
Yeah, I don't know about England's temps but I noticed Stevenage losing several games to pitch condition last year. I don't now that it's always frozen pitches--maybe there are water-logged ones as well. Blackpool lost a match to a frozen pitch the recent year they were up. I guess Premier League teams need to have under soil heating but not in the first year up.
Teams have a set amount of time (3 years?) to meet stadium requirements on promotion.
Coked-out hamster has apparently left NY's camp and is in California with the Fire now. So this is the 4th team he's worked with in a year.
Watching the Orlando City v Union match ... odd seeing Conor Casey in Philly kit
Joseph Nane playing for DC United against Tampa Bay
Hunter Freeman signs with NY Cosmos.
Hmm, wonder what they're paying him that the Rapids and Revs wouldn't.
