    As soon as the "paperwork" is completed, Falvo will need to visit this thread for a tasty meal of crow. :D

    No, I don't think he came on the trip.

    Depth and versatility will be our friend this year. Looks like Dawkins may be a such contributor, midfield or more or less up top. At least we can hope.

    Re: The Official Simon Dawkins thread

    For those who haven't read some of the history on him, the issue he's had is staying injury-free. Hopefully he's gotten past that and can contribute this year. Sounds like he could fill in at "withdrawn forward" for Wondo, or play in the midfield centrally or out wide. Very excited to see this signing, based on the time in England this year there were very positive reviews of his play.

    Re: The Official Simon Dawkins thread

    so is he in San Jose now, or still in England working on getting work permit paper work done?

    Re: The Official Simon Dawkins thread

    Yes, I am wondering too. The Quakes site just says he is signed but doesn't mention whether he is with the team in SJ now.

    Did anyone see him in the practice?

    I don't think there was training today. I tried to ask via Twitter and SLO_Quakes says "mums the word" on his location.
    It's just funny the secretiveness of our team.

    Sometimes I wonder if the Quakes is run by CIA agents.

    Re: The Official Simon Dawkins thread

    Did he fly all the way back to England? He was just over here for training so part of me thinks he's around here still. When was the last time he played with the Quakes in the last month or so? I have my tickets for the home opener, i'd love to see him start. =)

    I notice you're not denying ties to the C.I.A.

    We have ways of making you talk. :)

    If Chad Ochocinco were coming on trial with the Quakes instead of KC, the Quakes would call him "trialist" and keep it a secret.

    My mistake, I remember correctly now that he was never over here. Hopefully he will be soon! :)

    The guy's a twig and is going to get crushed in the MLS.

    Well, he's English, so maybe a "twiggy"?

    He does look really thin in that photo, but it's a little hard to tell, and also the photo could have been taken when he was a teenager.

    OK, he doesn't look like a "twig" there at all. I'm guessing that other pic is from when he was a teenager, sometime very early in his time with Tottenham.
