Signed with MLS, playing with RSL.
Wow. That came out of left field.
isn't this kid supposed to be like, ridiculusly skilled?
I guess we'll be able to find out for ourselves now.
In an Ellinger-type system? Let's hope so....
Sounds like you don't have a lot of faith in Ellinger. LOL
I saw him at the 2004 combine. He was easily the best offensive player there.
(Whether that means anything ... that's debateable.)
... intereseting ... Demspey ... was ... there
As I said, it's debateable whether combine performance means much.
He was a mostly starter (but not always) in the 4th highest division of English soccer. That doesn't scream "wow"..
you've got to be kidding me. i have long since stopped paying homage to the second and third divisions of all these euro leagues that i once thought was the holy grail.
RSL moves a little closer to their goal of reassembling the 1999 U-17 team.
There's five members by my count:
I bet they could get Beckerman easily.
Knave was referring to having watched him at the MLS Combine with most of the 2004 draft prospects. It's not like he's a career 4th division player. Coming out of UCLA, he must've figured he'd get paid better in Europe (and somehow got an English work permit) so he basically didn't sign with MLS before the draft so he fell to the mid-second round, which is still fairly high. Now he's just a year and a half past that decision, so I think we can throw out the English 4th division player tag (yeah he didn't get a better deal elsewhere, but he did get playing time) and just look at him as a 1st round level pick in MLS entering a year late. He just might have some skills.
They could probably get Alex Yi too.
I have seen the future: Bobby Convey washes out at Reading and returns to MLS to play for Ellinger at RSL ...
Read this post again - it doesn't seem THAT far-fetched, does it?
Apparently he qualified through a Portuguese passport.
So he's not Jewish?
RSL got the rights to Gregorio from the Rapids, but that doesn't mean he will be playing for RSL.
He still had to agree to come back to the US from Darlington, right?
Considering the CRapids have had his rights for over a year and never saw him, this whole transaction might not mean anything.
You think they would go to that trouble if a deal was not highly likely?
And reduce Kreamalmeyer to a developmental contract in the process.
Demoting Luke K isn't that big of a deal. Besides they had to do that regardless if they bring in Gregorio or Cabrera (Guatemalan trialist).
The press release makes it clear that if Gregorio doesn't come by Dec 2005, then RSL gets their pick back from the CRapids.
I'm just saying this isn't a sure thing.
Seems to me that the only thing thats changed for Gregorio is that he can now play for his former U17 coach, Ellinger. If he wanted to play in MLS he could have done that last year.
Of course, it was with the CRapids, which may have influenced the decision.
He isn't on the squad list for Darlington anymore.
