Now this is what I like to see, people starting to feel the flow of Season 2 as we get ready to start it up again. Lots of good feedback from the readers out there.
A few things: Hope to see some of you or all of you at the Gorilla FC/Steve Zakuani/James Riley benefit for Haiti Saturday at George and Dragon. I’ll be taking some photos and video, and thanks to those folks for doing this. One thing is for sure in this town – people care about the world here.
Saw a Metro bus today with Raphael Cox’s photo on the back of it, in full Real Salt Lake uniform. It was an ad for Highline CC, where he attended for a time. Should Rave Green fans be OK with a city bus bearing an image of a rival MLS team? Sure, why not, I say, the guy won the MLS Cup with his team and he’s a local and he’s doing good for himself, besides fans here are generally good-natured enough to be congratulaters, not haters.
Steve Zakuani was on with Ian Furness of KJR-AM today talking about the benefit this weekend.
Let’s start with “you are wrong”: You are right, as far as I’m concerned. I think the signing of Delgado – if it does happen – is about building depth for all of those extra games. Seattle wants to be competitive against the clubs from CONCACAF and wants some experienced guys who can hang against that caliber of competition. Plus he’s young and the team has to look to the future.
Not sure if a trade is in the works though. That’s hard to imagine.
“lawdawg82” asked about Reda Doulyazal, who had a trial with SSFC last year. Haven’t heard anything new about him.
“Osa Congo” asked about when Delgado would be here – I would say that if he’s here on Jan. 25 for the start of camp, you won’t be able to catch him play for Puntarenas. He might be delayed a couple of days, but if the game you want to see is in two weeks, he’d be here already.
And “Al Bundy” thanks for the compliment, loved you in “Married With Children.” A fine American TV show. I’ve been told that a camp roster could be available before Jan. 25 so if I get it of course I will share.
To be clear – I’ve asked the club for confirmation on Delgado and Yakir Lusky, but it isn’t confirming anything at this point. So we are left with speculation. Everything will be known in due time I suppose.
