    Well, yeah, I was talking about the financial risk. Ten years ago, HGH injections were still pretty new, especially in Argentina, and I don't think it was all that clear that it would help turn him into a $250 million property.

    As to wether Diego grew up in Buenos Aires, you decide. His parents were from Corrientes province, which is still pretty remote outside Rosario. He was born in Lanus, a southern outlier of Buenos Aires D.F. and grew up in the even more outlying Villa Fiorito.

    Here's what Villa Fiorito looks like today:

    Whether that is city slum or outlying province I'll let others decide. 40 years ago it would have been less developed. The region around Buenos Aires city has about doubled in the last 40 years. It is NOT in Buenos Aires D.F., but in Lomas de Zamora Partido of Buenos Aires Province. It's the Pampas. Here's what wikipedia says about Lomas de Zamoras district:

    Records show his first club as Estrella Roja (red star) in Villa Fiorita. He was sold to Argentinos Juniors and played for their youth team which was nicknamed Los Cebollitas (the little Onions) a not very polite celebration of their youth and toughness.

    Where does that estimate come from (highlight)? Is that Barca's asking price, or did it come from Football Manager?

    My source said Casey Short scored on a nice individual effort, beating about 3 people with a minute remaining.

    But the French site appears to indicate it was Zakiya Bywaters:

    http://www.fff.fr/selections/fem19ans/actualite/528190.shtml

    La sélection moins de 19 ans Féminine est actuellement à La Manga près de Carthagène dans le sud de l'Espagne pour disputer l'édition 2009 du Tournoi éponyme. Victorieuses de la Suède (2-1) lundi, les Tricolores ont fait match nul en début d'après-midi contre les Etats-Unis (1-1). Menant au score grâce à une réalisation de Kenza Dali (73ème), les Françaises se sont fait rejoindre dans les arrêts de jeu sur une égalisation de Zakiya Bywaters (94ème).

    Avec déjà à leur crédit plusieurs occasions nettes, les Tricolores réalisaient le plus difficile à la 73ème minute de jeu en trouvant enfin l'ouverture. Bien servie par Fanny Tenret, l'attaquante lyonnaise Kenza Dali s'engouffrait dans la surface adverse et trompait la gardienne américaine d'une frappe croisée.

    Les Américaines n'abdiquaient pas pour autant et voyaient leurs efforts récompensés sur l'une de leurs dernières opportunités. L'attaquante Zakiya Bywaters profitait d'une mésentente de la défense tricolore pour chiper le ballon et filer seule au but avant de tromper du plat du pied le dernier rempart tricolore.

    TRANSLATION (poor but free)

    The American ones did not abdicate for as much and see their rewarded efforts on the one of their last timeliness. The attack Zakiya Bywaters took advantage of a misunderstanding of the three-colored defense to swipe the ball and spin alone to the goal before cheating dish of the foot the last three-colored wall.

    I see Jill Ellis has regained her position of the infamous unfair recruiting advantage.

    Smashfoot, what does your source say about our struggles today? Just lack of time together for the girls to form good cohesiveness?

    Integrating the new players has been a bit of a struggle I think, but that is what games like this are for more than a year in advance of the WC.

    On the 1st goal reportedly our defender was covering attacker #1, but then a 2nd attacker knocked defender down and attacker #1 was left in front of goal with ball. 2nd goal they sprung a player loose behind the defense.

    This is an almost completely new and very young team. Here is where we should not focus on the score but rather focus on what the new players are learning. Remember all those posts about worrying too much, with young players, about winning and losing and not worrying enough about teaching them to play properly for the long run?

    Yeah a time for buliding plus a few players (who you imagine will be at 2010 WC) were missing from the squad such as Brooks, Verloo and Roberts.

    Damn, looks like the FSU trio along with most of the team that made the trip to Germany were not up to snuff.

    If you travel with a national team to play games, that means more than being invited to a camp.

    New blood. It looks like a lot of those players aren't even in the 2009 player pool.

    The three FSU players are :

    A) born in 1990 (old ladies)
    2) not potential UCLA recruits

    Sorry , CH

    Re: from US Soccer Wire:

    just a mild little jab. Several of the people listed are being courted by UCLA according to my sources. After the recent complaints about coaches using the Youth teams as an unfair recruiting edge, I thought I'd point out this case.

    I see the turnover as a move to see more players in the youth levels. Pia has stated she wants a larger pool to pick from for the next WC cycle. The only way to do that is to get more players involved.

    Keeping a couple of players makes sense for continuity. I believe a couple of them were team captains the last time around.

    Re: from US Soccer Wire:

    I see Ellis is up to some thievery and trickery once again, poaching the 'nova keeper. Hasn't played in two years? Is that because of transfer rules? Whatthehell, let me use the youth national team setup to blood my rusty new keeper. And let me reward my prized 2010 recruit with a U20 call-up, forget the frigging U18s, now those are real amateurs. Surprised she didn't call up her entire 2009 incoming class. Bloody good show Jillian. Whatever works. :rolleyes:
