Thanks Tree - beat me to it.

No major changes for Fulham game
I'm really curious to see how the Fulham fans react when Claudio has the ball or gets subbed in. It's been so soon since the transfer that I think the die-hard Fulham fans will give him a lot of stick.
Pardon my ignorance here, but as I signed up for the audio via that site last week, how do I get in again?
I'm not seeing any audio or multimedia links on the front page at mcfc.com...
Nevermind.. found the "live commentary" link on the front page. Duh, Will...
Now, if I can only get it to work...
Not in the 16.
There goes this thread...
Exactly. Bang, bang, this thread is dead.
Does this mean I can get some decent sleep tonight?
Nope you can't get sleep...
You now have to come up with reasons why Claudio wasn't included in the lineup and why it's a good thing for him and the USA
Hopefully, he's just training his way into shape, so that he'll crack Keegan's first XI in about a month or so.
And then, everything will be all and well for the American captain in terms of leading the USA out for the World Cup qualifiers.
I did see that Robbie Fowler, who wasn't in the squad for City's thrashing of Aston Villa last week, was chosen over Claudio. Draw whatever conclusions from that as you wish.
But I do think that Reyna will get his share of playing time soon, perhaps in the next month or so.
I wouldn't get too bent out of shape over his non-selection today.
Part of a 0-3 loss in the reserves,and left out of the matchday squad on the Saturday.....
Can a loan to Carlisle be far behind?
Oh, heaven forbid.
Reyna will stick this out. Just a hunch that I'm playing here...
Anelka puts City ahead.
1-1. Malbranque with a questionable goal, looked offside according to the Sky folks.
2-1 to Fulham now..
Hopefully Reyna is being saved for the UEFA cup fixture on Thursday
Go-ahead goal to Saha, on 79 minutes.
Hope you're right-- and that would explain everything.
Bosvelt bicycle off the bar from 17 yards out.
2-2. Sun Jihai with the cross, Wanchope with the goal in the third minute of injury time.
Wanchope rescues a point!
After all the times he's scared the hell out of me when the US played Costa Rica, it is a strange sensation to be happy when Wanchope scores.
Reyna has to earn his way into the lineup. He hasn't done it yet, though I still have confidence in him.
Looking at the lineup, I don't see a single player more valuable than Claudio Reyna, including McManamanamanamanaman.
a couple of recent articles:
Kev's abundance of riches:
Nine midfielders on the roster for Man City.
For incredibly, as the dust finally settles on two frantic years of wheeling and dealing, Keegan has NINE quality midfield players at his disposal.
And you don't need a mathematics degree to work out that nine into four doesn't go.
The list of midfielders who have presented Keegan with a massive selection problem reads as follows: Steve McManaman, Claudio Reyna, Trevor Sinclair, Joey Barton, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Antoine Sibierski, Eyal Berkovic, Danny Tiatto and Paul Bosvelt.
Reyna: We can stay in the top six
If Reyna is not playing first team football by December, then this is a bad move on his part. Should have signed with Fulham.
