"I wonder if there's an opening for the Colombia NT coaching job?"
- Juan Pablo Angel is a bad man. In just three games, he's becoming the MVP of the league. 3 goals and 2 assists have him racing up the Golden Boot standings. And if you count their 3-1 loss in the US Open Cup, he's still averaging a goal a game with the Toros Rojos. I think he's earned a spot on Colombia's Copa America team.
- Arena should ship Reyna to Real Salt Lake. He's a waste of space, and as the last two games have shown, they don't need him. I know they'd waste one of their DP spots, but his salary and what they're getting from him in return makes any kind of deal worth it.
- Unfortunately we couldn't catch the game live last night so I had to check the highlights this morning. Shoe and I headed over to Silverbacks Park for some PDL action last night.
- The Silverbacks U-23s played a great game last night as they beat Bradenton 3-1, leaving them just one win away from the US Open Cup. If Central Florida beats Cocoa this afternoon at 5, the Mini-Backs will need a win at Carolina tomorrow. If Central Florida can't pull out the victory, all Atlanta will need is a tie in Browns Summit. (Browns Summit is just north of Greensboro, and yes, I've been there before.)
- We really enjoyed watching last night's game, it was quite a difference in style and tactics from the senior team. The boys had some great buildups and really looked like a team, as opposed to the senior team just lobbing balls over the top.
- This was the 2nd PDL game I'd seen as I also made it out to a game last season. For those who don't know anything, I've really enjoyed watching these games. And in the two times the Silverbacks senior team has taken on PDL teams in the Open Cup, they got killed in one and were taken to extra time in the other.
- I'd love to go up to Browns Summit tomorrow, but I'm off to Charleston for the Silverbacks-Battery game. I'll miss MLS Saturday action as well, hopefully the trip will be worth it.
