    Only three sentences, quotes no sources, doesn't jive with previous statements from him.

    TF gets all of their stuff from other sources. My guess the zero point for this BS is a local newspaper someplace in the UK.

    While at the Liverpool game monday night , I was pageing through the progroam and there in the section of transfer rumors is a half page photo of our favorite little bug, DMD with a paragraph about the Middlesbrough deal . No new news It was just really cool to see that. It apparently isn't over yet.

    if DMB goes overseas it seems he wants to go to italy or spain. that's what i get from what i've read in local interviews. and form his attitude towards inquiries by ajax and boro..etc. it's not neccessarily because that's where his brother plays it just seems that it's because that's where he dreams of playing. but he definately wants to go overseas. he's said it in more than one interview. (one was not too long ago) so he doesn't have LD syndrome. it just appears he doesn't want to go to england or anywhere around there.

    Boro wouldn't have been so bad, except playing time would be at a premium with the Smoggies depth at midfield.

    The Baggies would be another story.

    That I do not know. It seems they get their news from some wire service judging by the way it's organized.

    I came across it and posted it because I, too, was surprised that DMB would reject a move to a Premiership team based on his earlier comments. Maybe it just wasn't the right fit in his mind. I'll bet we get more info on this topic in the future as interviewers are sure to prod the topic now that the transfer window is closed in most Euro leagues.

    jmeissen0 reports the same thing I heard in an interview. Beasley intends to finish the season and playoffs (and MLS Cup Championship :)) with the Fire, but would like to go to Europe after that. He fully expected earlier in the season--around the all-star break--to be going to Ajax, but that fell through at the last minute.

    Let's not forget, too, that any offers can also be "snubbed" by MLS, and not necessarily directly by Beasley or his agent, since MLS owns his contract. WBA and Boro may have made offers that MLS was simply not willing to entertain.

    I am not sure. The guys who won the appeals have tons of international caps behind them or have played in England before. Of course, Juninho also won the World Cup.

    They just rejected Ahn Jung Hwan who was one of the star at the World Cup. He have many international caps in the last 2 to 3 years. DMB played about 2 and half matches in the World Cup. He has about 15 caps, but mostly used as a sub. I think alot of friendly matches too. He does not look good on paper.

    Isn't there a "super young stud" kind of category. I thought there was some appeal basis for being a young star.
