    Nearing retirement? How so?

    McBride has just recently turned 30 and barring serious injury could still play another 4 to 6 years.

    Well, if he shares your priorities, I guess he not only should stay in the US but he better make sure he stays in Columbus. In some of those other MLS cities, there's actually lots of people speaking different languages. And there's even different cultures in those cities -- I'm guessing exposure to different cultures isn't a "positive environment" for kids in your view. Something to consider -- some of us Americans believe living overseas and learning other languages is a very positive experience for our kids.

    Uhm, in picking it's players who benefitted from the WC, the Guardian noted that McBride is only 20. So that's fixed then. He's got a decade plus of play left.
    Norway, in a general sense, would be great. But in Trondheim don't they tie the boots around the old ladies necks before throwing them into the fjord?
    I'm not sure that's a great thing for a kid to see. And i doubt that the fine people at Monty Python would have lied about it.

    Look, leaving the USA to live in England, or Italy, or France, or even Germany is one thing.

    Norway?

    It's not like the guy is making 40k. He's doing fine, and he's a bright, articulate guy, and could certainly do some broadcasting when he's done.

    Every move overseas isn't necessarily a good move.

    this is pure speculation, but I think McBride is a sharp guy and probably does smart things with his money. I doubt that he needs to worry about college money for his kid.

    What's not speculatin is that McBride really wants to play in Europe. He's said so to anyone who will listen recently. His is the type of case where the league needs to work with the player to find him a spot overseas. I know he's under contract here, but when players are unhappy in a situation, teams worldwide find them new places to play, esp. good soliders like McBride. Not saying give him away, but if he wants to move any and every where else, MLS needs to send him on his way.

    But for international soccer, he will get two or three years at most. He would not be in another WC Finals. Of coursem he can continue to play in the A-League liked Waldo for 5 more years, but he would be earning much less.

    Well, last year Waldo led the Fire in scoring and would still be here, if it wasn't for the nasty salary cap which also forced the Fire to lose Diego Gutierez. Despite all the development he has helped us with Hristo is KILLING us with his max salary. The only reason Waldo resorted to the A-League was because their salary offer was far above anything the Fire or Galaxy could offer, not because his talent is gone.

    As for the 2-3 years at most I'd beg to differ, I believe that there is a fair chance he will fill the Joe Max Moore roll in 2006 and it will be quite hard to phase him out during CONCACAF qualifying. If McBride stays in shape I can't see his game really regressing in the next 4 years, he'll still be a solid target man.

    I am not sure that this is renewed interest on behalf of Everton, or just the writer speculating that Everton is still "monitoring the situation".

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but with the new transfer rules, if McB isn't sold before Aug 31 (i.e., if the league does NOT gut Columbus midseason), then he can't go abroad until Dec 1 (or is it Jan 1)?

    IOW, the MLS schedule and the new transfer rules are a real problem for veterans. For a player like Beasley, who would be purchased for the future, a team would buy McBride for right now. Which leaves MLS with the choice of selling him mid-season (MLS) or midseason (European league.)

    Both suck.

    Could Everton sigh him before the August 31st deadline, but then loan him back to the Crew for the rest of the MLS season, afterwhich he returns to Everton (and is eligible to play)?

    Not sure if this would be Kosher under UEFA rules, but it seems this way you have your cake and eat it too.

    Perenially around the top of the world table as far as standard of living goes (I believe), if that's what you're getting at.

    I would not go to Norway if I was already married, because there are just too many hot viking girls there.

    I ran into a few Norweigen girls on vacation while I was visiting Copenhagen. That is what you call the best of both worlds.
