    I know we don't have that many years of history behind us but I wanted to start a "Where are they now?" thread. I know some of these guys are still in the league but some of them have moved on.

    Some players that come to mind:

    Zach Wells
    Mpho Moloi
    Marcus Storey
    Tony Caig
    Ryan Cochrane
    Franco Carracio
    Ronald Cerritos
    Kelly Gray
    Joseph Ngwenya
    Julian Nash
    Patrick Ianni
    Johnny Alcaraz
    Chris Aloisi
    Adrian Serioux
    Julian Nash

    I think this is right... Zach went back to San Jose to take over his father's landscaping business.

    I thought Storey went back to school?

    Wells and landscaping, is that true or rumor?

    I have a friend that's a friend of his, he told me that. His father ran the company but was in poor health, when soccer wasn't working out for him so well the family business sounded good.

    I am sorely tempted to contribute to this with: "Tony Caig - working as a human highway construction barrel in Scotland" but it just seems too easy.

    The fact that he is with "Chestfield" in England is too rich, given his "chesting" of the ball into his own net vs. New England about one year ago.

    I thought it was as much injury issues for Zach retiring, admittedly he might have started the year second-string to Crayton at DC...

    also, Caig's current club in England is called Chesterfield, not Chestfield.

    Corbin Waller was listed in the program for the Charleston Battery (USL1) this last weekend while they were in Austin to play the Aztex. I didn't see him on the sideline or field however.

    an old friend (Alejandro Moreno) started upfront alongside an old nemesis (Giancarlo Maldonado of Atlante) for the Venezuelan National Team friendly against Mexico.

    Ale didn't score, but as is his custom he drew 4-5 free kicks fouls close to the penalty area.

    Versatile guy, great as sub, probably never lived up to his potential in MLS, but did get us Jaqua in a trade. CCC goal vs. Puntarenas was high point.

    I have to say, I don't much understand what many of San Jose's personnel moves are, and Yallop and Doyle are Dom's buddies and they worked together for so long you would think they would be a little ahead of things in year 2.

    That's exactly what I was thinking ever since I first read about him being cut.
