  • San Jose defeated Portland last night 1-0 on an extra time goal from Ike Opara in US Open Cup play. The Fire will now travel to San Jose some time in May to face the Earthquakes in another USOC play in game.

    Vancouver is playing tonight ahead of the Saturday game in Chicago. They are facing Montreal in the second leg of their Nutrilite Canadian Championship playoff.

  • Charlie Corr on central mids and 4-1-4-1........

    Blanco?

  • In reply to Adam25:

    Must be someone that's not under contract right now...

  • In reply to Adam25:

    they cut banner? or maybe a trade, should be able to trade still even though xfer window is close right?

  • In reply to lijien:

    Maybe the first team from Pachuca. It appears the team put all their players on the transfer list.

  • In reply to lijien:

    I think MLS' crazy rules allow for the addition of players available via free transfer.

  • In reply to cesba:

    Any team anywhere can add a player via free transfer outside the FIFA-mandated window. The country-specific windows only apply to paid transfers of players currently under contract, and then only on an incoming basis.

    It may be the most misunderstood rule out there.

  • In reply to Krasny:

    You are correct.

  • In reply to Krasny:

    You're kidding , Thorrington is on the injured list ?

  • In reply to cesba:

    Guarantee its not Rivas.

  • In reply to Adam25:

    let me guess rivas?

  • In reply to firefan1998:

    Rivas has looked pretty good from what I've seen.

  • In reply to Adam25:

    Or an MLS player we traded for

  • In reply to Adam25:

    Adam, Blanco is doing some acting back in Mexico.

  • In reply to Adam25:

    its a young colombian.. i think the MLS has just decided to take any colombian prospect that didn't go to europe.

  • In reply to cesba:

    I am going to start watching Toluca soccer to scout this guy.
