    Yeah, there more than one, but they all own the team.

    and

    There will be NO transfer fee, but LA would own his rights so we would have to give something/someone up (I bet they would want Magee ). I was just joking. If Andy would do something like this, I'd get my 4 club season tickets the next day.
    Maybe they'll want MacDonald

    http://americansoccernow.com/article...y-he-chose-u-s

    An article on why our future starting CB chose the US over Germany. He's one to look out for for sure. Only 20yo and already starting in the Bundesliga. And he's not like the other German-Americans who rode out Germany until they stopped getting called up and then switched. He's wanted to play for the US for a while, even when Germany had interest in him. Get excited for the future!

    Already do it for the Fire anyway

    Wanted to do Rush too, but they never responded back, but seriously what position were they in to be picky? If they weren't in the league's founding/headquarter city they'd be long gone by now.

    I have post-game press conference and post-game locker room/player access. And I tweet on @CCS_Fire during the games. Javier Leon even pops in at half time from time to time.

    Fortunately no Fire unavailable for the run coming up... except for Lindpere and Rios for other national teams. Manageable, not perfect scenario, but manageable.

    The interesting question about this group of qualifiers is what you do in the midfield. Dempsey isn't necessarily fit, Donovan would be better served as a striker to open things up on the wing for Bedoya or Zusi, and I actually prefer Cameron over Jones as Bradley's partner in the midfield. Mix has shown himself to have a creative spark that is often missing from the USMNT, but he's muscled off the ball far too easily. I'd prefer to see Beasley in the midfield.

    Although I've been critical of previous attempts to run the 4-3-3, I think this roster could do it. I'd start Howard in goal and put Castillo, Besler, Gonzalez, and Parkhurst (called up to replace the injured Brad Evans) on the back line. Fabian Johnson, Michael Bradley, and Alejandro Bedoya would get my call in the midfield, and Beasley, Jozy, and Landon would play up top. If Dempsey is fit, I'd probably move away from the 4-3-3, but I like the offensive potential of such a set-up.
