Major Soccer League or Major League Soccer - I guess it sounds the same to those in England. But you would think, with all the recent transfers of players, they would get it right by now.
uh... Does he have some EU heritage that I don't know about, cause I'm thinking a work permit may be a wee bit of a problem...
I have the feeling Metro wish they had reconsidered the Clark-Szetela switch with C-bus.... Oh well.... No one can read the future, and this is no done thing.... But if anyone brings up the issue again that the Metro are somehow favored over every other MLS club, they can go %*&$ themselves
Are you saying Wigan doesn't have the clout to win an appeal?
Actually, has Clark been playing for the U23s / U21s? I don't follow the youth teams very closely. I'm asking this because if he's been playing for them regularly and given his age, that may be enough to get him a work permit for the time being. If that doesn't work, there's always Polishwives.com.
I think this is just another training session, like EJ and Man Utd.
not according to the link...a serious look is being given to Rico
What is Rico's Caribbean heritage and does it link back to Europe in some way?
In any event if Wigan can get him, they probably should. They certainly have a shout for promotion to the Prem too.
I guess they'll get it right about the same time the "EPL" is got right.
The guys at that site even write in cockney.
Anyhow, it'd be odd for a club like Wigan to just fly a guy over if they had no interest or capabilities of buying him.
But, overall ... Dempsey, Clark, Garcia ... three guys in one week? This is beginning to resemble an avalanche.
Well I've heard announcers call it the English Premier League on EPL broadcasts countless times and I've never heard Stone call it the Major Soccer League so it really isn't close to the same thing.
Youth teams don't count.
Winning an appeal on a player who's close is one thing, winning when you're ManU and it's a goal-keeper you're after is another. But winning when the player has zero percent appearances is virtually impossible. Since he has a london agent touting him for jobs in the UK, Clark must have an unmentioned EU connection. Either that, of this is classic putting the beta version in a shop window early, hoping people get excited about when the real article is available.
I've never heard an English broadcast call it the EPL.
Odd. I have.
Back on topic - Rico's dad's name is Lancelot. That alone should be good enough for a work permit.
It's just a trial.
At least on this side of the pond.
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Nutmeg again.
I hear the FSW overlay announcers break in at halftime and call it the EPL, but the English guys calling the actual match call it "the Premiership".
Wigan isn't in the premiership. They are in the Championship. Doesn't that make it easier to qualify.
Nope, it is the same qualifications to get a work permit, regardless of division.
So is it pronounced Wiggin, like I'm wiggin out! Or is it pronounced Y-gan?
Or none of the above?
The rule's not in place to regulate each league's relative strength. It's there to, ostensibly, make sure honest, hardworking Brits aren't put out of jobs by dirty, low-salaried foreigners. The US doesn't have a monopoly on myopia.
Hattrick, quit wiggin' out - it's pronounced "wiggin".
The article on the Wigan website says he might play in a reserve game against Sheffield U. Does a player have to be officially on loan to do this? I have a hazy idea that a loan is a more formal arrangement than a trial.
Do you have a ...... link?
I always thought Wigan sounded a bit like "rubgy town".
