    What can anyone tell me about Simon Bird.

    Also, it's nice to see a coach of color doing well and getting recognized. We need more of that in American soccer.

    Simon Bird is a classic British style "Target Forward". Very powerful in the air and on the ball. Strong shot. Plays a lot of post up, back to the goal, holding the ball, laying the ball off to support runners. Simon will get a look from MLS and most probably will end up being an A League top performer.

    Simon has had a great year this year, and a great career overall, actually. Since the previous post described his playing style and abilities, I'll give you a few stats. He scored 12 goals this year, including 3 game-winners, and now has 29 for his career. Its just a shame that Adrian Cann was out due to eligibility questions, or the team probably could have posted 2 or 3 more wins than they did. Now, with the first-round loss to UAB in the tourney, it looks like his college career is over.
