    This has gone from rumour to confirmed in one day. According to Sebastian Mila and the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza, Mila will decide on whether he will join the Chicago Fire after the World Cup. This means that Austria Wien and the Fire must have agreed to a loan deal or a transfer fee. Mila is worth 1.6 million Euros according to Transfermarkt.de. http://www.transfermarkt.de/index.html?anz=/spieler/spieler_details.php4?spieler_id=16300

    Mila is a very talented attacking midfielder with a wicked right foot. If the Fire sign him we would have one of Poland's best (if not best) young players entering his prime. We would kill everyone.

    I gotta say I like the Fire's attention to Polish players, Chicago being a big Polish city.

    I wish we could get the Revs to sign Robbie Keane and bring the Irish guys out from Boston down to Foxborough haha...

    Mila to the Fire, Van den Bergh to the Wizards. Some talented get reasonably priced European talent heading to MLS this summer. The Eastern Conference is going to be even wilder than last year.

    It is especially nice when it is combined with some nice finds out of south america like thiago, mina, nagamura, and maybe marcos gonzalez and marcos charras (gotta see how they play after a few games). Most teams are getting better at finding reasonably talented foreigners and not breaking the bank on them.

    Would signing a Polish player bring in more fans to the stadium?

    Mila? He's gotta be 50 years old by now, doesn't he?

    Sort of like how the Galaxy kill everyone because they've got one of the USA's best (if not best) young players entering his prime, who also happens to be a very talented attacking midfielder?

    It would be a nice pick up - not that i know a huge amount about him, but it makes sense giving the cities polish contingent, and also thw past successes of Polish players on the Fire.

    Always nice to pick up a young talent on the rise.

    It's a fine line by being attentive to your demographics, and pandering to them....one player is the former.

    Unless he can play forward and midfielder at the same time, won't help them too much. Kinda like lusting after a hot girl that won't do it with you--Looks pretty, but doesn't change the end result.

    ...And how many guys for the Fire are going to the WC?

    Cuz LA's got probably 2 w/ the US (Donovan and likely Albright) and maybe a 3rd (Dunivant... a virtual shoe-in in 2010).

    And how did the playoffs go for you last year?

    US Open Cup?

    And you still wanna say that the rest of the Fire are better than the Galaxy? :eek:

    Try closer to 60. He was 42-44 (which in Satchel Paige years could mean even more!) in 1990.

    That guy was a great player...

    Well, a quick Google search shows we need to split the difference. 54 in upcoming May. In 1994, became oldest player to score in a World Cup at age 42 (will that record ever get beat? Hard to imagine...)

    Selection to a WC squad does not necessarily mean that any player is among the 23 best in his country. Selection includes players that enhance the play of others and pure role players. No one would select Mastroeni among the 23, or for that matter 50, best US players but he fill a necessary role for Arena. Comparing players is a national pasttime that is fun but meaningless.
