- Luis over at Sideline Views has found out that Chivas USA's Brad Guzan and Jonathan Bornstein will be two of the 8-12 players that Bob Bradley is planning on taking to both the Gold Cup and Copa America. Add that to the probably absence of Sacha Kljestan during this summer's U-20 World Cup in Canada, and it could be a long summer for the goats.
- Houston has loaned out former U-20 international Patrick Ianni to the California Victory of USL-1. Ianni played the full 90 on Wednesday in California's 1-1 draw against Charleston.
- We'll get a chance to see some young guys get their shot when the USA takes on China on Saturday night. With only 3 forwards (Kamani Hill of Wolfsburg, Charlie Davies of Hammarby and Ante Razov of Chivas USA), I'd expect Razov to start either up front by himself or with one of the other two strikers. Let's just hope Razov doesn't have a stellar game to put himself back in the NT discussion.
- All of the action in the USL First Division this weekend is taking place east of the Rockies, meaning no late night games for us on the East Coast. The highlight of the action is the Canadian derby between Vancouver and Montreal, on FSC tonight.
