Some News for Tue Jan 26, 2010


Stuart Holden is now a member of Bolton Wanderers. He talks to the team's official website here.


The headline contained in this next link is pure Pro-Ruud Gullit Propaganda: Gullit blames self for Galaxy flop
Ronald Blum of the Associated Press talks to Ruud Gullit about his time as a coach in MLS at the LA Galaxy, and Ruudy is pretty good at pointing the finger at everyone else.
-Don't get me wrong, almost everything Gullit says here is completely true, and its not really his fault that he was a joke as a manager. We all know that he never should have had the job in the first place, that blame all goes to David Beckham's management and AEG. But Gullit takes no responsibility for anything in this article despite what the headline says.


USA Today soccer writer Beau Dure will have his new book published in late May - Long-Range Goals: The Success Story of Major League Soccer (thanks to Tom G for the link)

There is a massive manhunt going on in Mexico for a suspect called El JJ. Police think he is the one who shot Cabanas in the head.


Quite the interesting post here from Robb Heineman, President of the Kansas City Wizards, on the teams official blog Hillcrest Road. He seems to be saying, this is your team and our money, now lets make it something really cool happen. Again, interesting approach.

Alright! Like I boldly predicted yesterday, it turns out Freddie Ljungburg was busy blogging instead of reporting to Seattle preseason training. It's a nice mixed bag of lame excuses, "my dog ate it" etc. The good part is, if he plays another top notch season no one will remember.


John Molinaro of the CBC on Kansas City draft pick Teal Bunbury, and his father.


Brian Lewis of the New York Post looks at the new duo in charge of Red Bull New York - Stoler & Backe.

Jay Hipps of Center Line Soccer gives us a little taste of the 1st day of San Jose preseason action.


ESPN with some Don Garber fluff - think People Magazine type crap - so why am I linking to it - I have no idea - and why am I conversing with myself like this - I have no idea - Tatoos, wine and cigars with Don Garber.


Metrofanatic reports on the Red Bulls first match in Spain, as they tie CSKA Moscow 1-1.


Metrofanatic also reports that the Red Bulls may have signed an Estonian international midfielder Joel Lindpere from Norwegian club Tromso.
-Looks like its an Erik Soler - Norway connection.


London club Crystal Palace has filed for Bankruptcy, but the affiliated Baltimore club says this has no effect on their business: (Via Twitter) "This will not effect Crystal Palace Baltimore as we prepare for the upcoming USSF D2 season"

One of our Friends In Football is Salt Lake City councilman Luke Garrott, and he gives us an update on a $40 Million project in his city that will bring tons more soccer fields for their youth. Good job man. We need more of this in every city!
-Article from the Salt Lake Tribune.
-Real Salt Lake will contribute $7.5 Million to this deal as a part of their arrangement to get public money for their stadium in Sandy.


ESPN sits down with a video camera focused on coach Bob Bradley and grills him about the ugly game last Saturday v Honduras, players getting healthy, his son, Animal House, the World Cup etc etc. Animal House? (Via US Soccer on You Tube.)

Small Business owners are largely forgotten. Thats why I only focus on them. I have experience several members of my family file bankruptcy due to small business failures. I also I suffered through 2 destroyed businesses due to failure however, in my failings I have learned some of the secrets to success. (Who can say they know it all?)

That story on the Bolton match in the Guardian is a great compliment to Holden. One odd thing: After spending most of the article talking about Stu and only briefly mentioning goal scorer Zat Knight, the reporter declares Fabrice Muamba as man of the match -- the only time he's mentioned in the whole story! Weird.
