Fire Alumni Update

Here’s a quick run down on the activities of some of the most recent former Fire.

Everyone’s favorite professor (especially a certain soccer scribe on the east coast) Juan Carlos Osorio and Once Caldes defeated winless Nacional 1-0 in Columbia yesterday.  The lone goal was scored by midfielder Jhon Valencia, who I’m told is a pretty good player and free kick specialist.  Once Caldes currently sits on top of the table and has qualified for Copa Libertadores. 

Chris Rolfe came on with 15 minutes remaining in Aalborg’s last match against a team with a name I can’t pronouce.  Rolfe is expected to get the start in the next match against another team with a name I can’t pronounce.

I’m sure many of you have seen Bakary Soumare’s ridiculous attempt to dribble a ball in his own end which was immediately followed by an embarrasing strip and pursuant red card.  Boulogne is deep in the relegation zone in France’s Ligue 1.

Gonzalo Segares and Apollon lost their last match 2-0 although Segares is starting regulary at left back. 

David Myrie was waived by Philadelphia after starting the season opener. Peter Nowak is not wasting any time.

Cuauhtemoc Blanco and Veracruz play CA Hidalgo on Sunday.  Veracruz currently sits in 11th place in Mexico’s second division.  Blanco has scored 3 goals in 10 games for the Tiburones Rojos. Is there any reason to stay and play with an 11th place team past July?

  • Holy Cow!! The US Boulogne game felt like a scrimmage game. There was no one there in the stands. Dave Myrie being waived was a surprise. Hamlett never played him and Novak never gave him a fair shot. The Union brought Danny Szetela on trial after being waived from DC United.

  • I have to say the only person I miss seeing is Rolfe, but when he comes back to the MLS next season I know he will go to Columbus... Hey Guillermo nice to see your keeping busy. 2 blogs a day should do it, unless something really juicey comes up. You taking any perdictions on Fire vs Rapids?

  • In reply to Adam25:

    I'll have MLS prediction posts up tomorrow.

  • In reply to Adam25:

    I have my predictions on the Fire game and the rest of the MLS.

  • I'm gonna like this. What, like three posts in four hours? Like this alumni update thing.

  • In reply to patrickhattrick:

    You won't be disappointed. The alumni thing is good thing so you can keep it what is around soccer other than the MLS.

  • That would be a negative. I'll try to find out where he is.
