Quite a bit of MLS player news the past few days:
-Chivas USA released forward Matt Taylor. I have been told by many people that Matt is a great guy, but he can't hit the broadside of a barn with his shot. Chivas have a specific player in mind to replace him on the roster, but no word yet on who that might be, but the rumor is two defenders Guatemalan Freddy Thompson and/or El Salvadoran Dennis Alas.
-Santino Quaranta did not end up in KC as first rumored. Instead LA dealt him to New York.
-I may have forgotten this one last week, but LA also released midfielder Ian Russell.
-Chicago signed Brazilian right midfielder Bruno Marques Menezes from minor league team Sao Carlos. He has been training with the team for a while.
-Real Salt Lake have hired former MLS defender Robin Fraser as an assistant coach.
-DC has released young midfielder Kasali Yinka Casal. He came to them from the Fulham academy.
