    Love listening to the elevator music as these things start. Is this a Muzak version of Joy to the World? I believe it is....

    I can't believe he is gone...I wanted him to always be in MLS to be the face of the league...oh well though, we still got freddy...

    yes, i'm one of the ones who wanted him to stay cuz i like MLS and want it to become the #1 soccer league, not a feeder league like a bunch of you want...

    and can i get this yellow card taken away, i was givin it over a year ago (for exactly NO REASON at all), its a whole new season fellas (mods), let me start fresh here and return to a normal bigsoccer lifestyle...

    thanks

    Let me get this straight.

    If he plays well his transfer value goes up....right?

    That means he will be there until the contract expires...right?

    Unless he decides to tank, or act in a poor manner. Ant thoughts? Haven't seen anyone look at it from this angle. Wants to come home then must play like crap.

    Then again, maybe his girl will get a lot of work in Germany now.

    Simon Borg at the healm. Gavidiz opening statement. "Four years ago tried to sign a homesick 18 year old kid... "

    Has embraced his role as a role model, humble and approachable... yadda yadda.

    That was shocking. Good ol' MLS, always entertaining.

    Hmmm, a prediction that Landon will return to MLS.

    "At the end of the season landon said he owed it to Leverkusian given everythign they've done for him and to give them a chance of convincing him that Germany and Leverkusian is a place he can succeed."

    Be joining Jan 1st 2005.

    SJ gets an allocation of course.

    MLS praises Landon for honoring his contract at Leverkusen. He will be there effective Jan. 1st. San Jose to get an allocation.

    they expect his to return to MLS at some point, but they don't know if that will be in 6 months, 18 months, or 5 years.

    He just said he feels obligated to "at least try it out." They've assured me that "it's not prison i'm goign back to." Germany always wasn't the friendliest place to me and that if it doesn't work out they'll do everything they can to make me happy. That has been part of me deciding to return.

    Yeah Landon doesn't exactly seem 100% confident or thrilled about going. It's like a wellllll I guess I'll give it a chaaaance.

    Landon did mention that he thinks the new expierence will be good for himself, and good for the national team.

    Anyone familiar with Bayer Leverkusen this year?

    Does Landon have a good chance of starting for them?

    as the #10 he has a very good chance of getting a lot of minutes and a pretty decent chance of starting eventually (this season).

    Landon thanks everybody involved and admits that, while working with him on his contract and situation, he (LD) can be a "pain in the ass."

    Landon says the talent level in Germany isn't all that much different from MLS.
