Here are the highlights from last night's match.
2012 Pre Season
Pre-season MLS power rankings poll has the Fire at #5.............
Well that's a curse if I've ever seen one! ha
The Fire were near the bottom to start the season last year right? So maybe they will climb all the way to the top this year. This is a good team, but I'm concerned with the injuries and depletions on the back line.
Asked Klopas about Steven Kinney today. He is not training with the team in Florida right now and could join them in the next phase in California but he is still struggling with injury setbacks so his status is still pretty much up in the air.
That's gotta be frustrating for Kinney. Injured the better part of the last 18 months. When he IS fit to return to training, it's going to be a slow process, and even slower for him to get match fit. Barring another recurrence, we could conceivably not see him until well after the start of the season.
I'm assuming his injury is preventing the Fire from releasing him, if that's an option they're kicking around? He would be a solid backup to Gargan, but you have to wonder if his football days are numbered with such a long stretch of injuries.
Two quick questions:
Did the new Quaker jerseys get lent out to the PepsiCo rec team? I thought they'd be using the new shirts straight away.
No Drogba speculation Guille? Is that a comment on the credibility of the rumor?
It seems Adidas isn't exactly quick to ship the new duds and there are still plenty of the old ones lying around.
The Drogba stuff is nonsense. I'll have something on it later today.
