    Wow, I just caught the overtime, and I see this walk through the frame real quick, and I says to myself, I says, "Hey that looked like Ronnie, but it can't be!"

    Sure enough. Wow. That was great to see. I can't fault Clarke for playing him. It's one of the few inspirational things to happen this season. Indeed, I wonder if any coach COULD have kept Ronnie out of the match.

    What a man.

    Wow, I was not expecting him to be back this year. But major props to O'Brien for working back. Didn't get to see the game though, did he look fit? Or did he seem to be a little slow and not have a lot of stamina?

    I hope he's still with the team when the new stadium opens.
    Good to hear he's back.

    I'm not sure he'll be with the team next season, let alone Frisco.

    But, since hope is all we have...

    And thanks for the good wishes... if you knew Ronnie, you'd know he appreciates all the support.

    I have a feeling he'll have his job waiting for him next season.

    I can't see him making such an effort to get back if he doesn't want to play for the Burn next year.

    but he does. Right? 3rd Degree? I get that impression with all the interviews.

    He has told me he wants to play here.
    Although he is not a fan or turf.

    The burn hold two option years... but I don't know anything about the $ value. His current deal is as a Tranitional International. His change to Senior International should? change things.

    In my estimation he will be your captain next year.

    Who picks the captian? players, coaches, a mixture?

    Is it wrong to assume that like pareja, he is well repescted by both players and coaching staff?

    It depends on the coach. Oscar was voted captain by players.

    No it is not wrong, he is respected by both.


    But let me be clear, I am guessing that player turnover and coaching change will leave Ronnie as the "starter" with the most experince, time here, and respect of his players... Just my guess that this will become "Ronnie's team." Although Jason Kreis might have something to say about that.

    It will be very interesting to see if the new brain trust keeps Jason or uses him as the catalyst of a big off season turnover. Would any other current player have more value to another team? Should the Burn keep him or trade him?

    Keep something in mind when considering this...

    Jason blames the Field Turf directly for his injury. If, and that's a BIG if, he wants to go elsewhere, he won't want to be on turf.

    Why would any veteran with considerable value want to play his possible last year on turf? If Elliot still has relationships in San Jose, I wouldn't be surprised if Kreis considered the Quakes for his last year and a serious chance at a championship.

    Kreis' last year should be with us in 2005 when we win the championship.

    The thought of seeing Brad Davis and Ronnie O in the same midfield at the same time is the only thing I'm looking forward to for next season.
