    There was an article about Jonathan Bolanos in the spanish newspaper HOY by Jose Luis Sanchez Pando. I had it translated and they are hoping to get the visa-work permit settled by the end of this week but of course no guarentees.
    He is looking forward to coming to the Fire who he says plays more a modern game with more speed and one touching. He said armas and razov told him the fire needs exctly his kind of player(an attacking midfielder). He says MLS is a step up financially and professionally from costa rican soccer.He promises to work hard and fit in with the team.

    I've asked a couple of players about the Bolanos workouts and, fwiw, the guys I talked to were all impressed and excited about his prospects. Word has it he is another lefty, btw.

    Everywhere you want to be...

    So what is the deal with the necessary papers for this guy? Is there any expectation he could have an impact this year?

    Yes I expect him to have an impact this year, if he is as good as Wilt has hinted. You need a visa to get a work permit. I don't think there is any problem, it just takes a couple weeks to get one. As one who works for the federal government that's not bad at all.

    Fanaddict got the major points, but here are a few others.

    I find it amusing that Bolaños said that Razov speaks Spanish very well. Razov is very shy about his Spanish. He played for Racing de Ferrol in Spain, but he's still rather halting. It's good Razov will now be forced to practice.

    Surprised that he said that Armas only speaks a little Spanish.

    Bolaños said that he was suprised that they work too hard here. After practice everybody goes to work out in the gym, or they keep kickin' around.
