Happy Birthday Michael Fucito, news and notes

Not much to add here on the lead note. But young Sounders FC forward/midfielder Michael Fucito turns less young today.
It’s his 24th birthday, so send your gifts and well wishes.
Not many scattered links tonight either (Sunday wasn’t a huge soccer day):

  • The well-connected Steven Goff at The Washington Post is hearing links between out-of-work Pat Noonan and Seattle. If it happened, he’d likely fit in as a right midfielder I would think. Sigi Schmid was the head coach in Columbus when Noonan joined the Crew after going to play in Europe. Hmmmmm.
  • Elsewhere around the league: Javier Morales talked about his wonder goals, Landon Donovan got off to a good start in his L.A. return and, finally, someone asked Dave van den Bergh about going back to New York.
  • The USWNT hasn’t lost in 24 games after dispatching of Mexico.
  • Lastly, Sven-Goran Eriksson is officially Ivory Coast’s coach now.

A couple videos, as always to close it out.
1. Nothing like a little “Showboat” from Soccer AM

2. Instant karma for a mean-spirited goalkeeper…
