Chew On The News

-Is it over for Carlos Bocanegra at Fulham. It sure is starting to seem like it. He has not played in at least a month, and when Fulham boss Chris Coleman talked about the man (Liam Rosenior) in Los's spot he said this: "....overall he has been a big plus for us this season. He has come on the scene aged only 20 and he is a kid. He has played out of position on the left hand side but I think he has done terrific." So, yeah. Carlos better find a new home cuz he has been beat out by a guy who doesn't even play the spot.
