  Ah the memories
It seems like it was a million years ago. Yeah, we won the double since then but this one was sweet.

BTW, I still think those are the best jerseys the team has worn...but they are changing again next month.

  A letter
Dear Hugo,

Thank you for all your advice on how to run the team. You really know what you're doing.

Your friend,

  Interesting move
At first I was excited to see Yallops latest gamble was to bring Edson Buddle to LA. But then I noticed he was giving up Tyrone Marshall to do so. Further thought leaves me thinking the backline isn't the problem as much as LAs lack of goals. After all, isn't Abel Xavier already in town waiting for his work permit?

This should be a good move. Alan Gordon and Nate Jaqua shouldn't be planning a long-term stay in LA at this point.

If he wasn't injured, would Chris Albright be packing his bags? Tyrone has plenty of time to pack and get his move in order though.

On the flip side, Toronto are getting one of the best central defenders in the league. their defence just improved dramatically.

  Beckham Rules
I've been too busy to write (or even watch) much lately. However, I saw this and had to share.

Nice one Dave. Thanks.

  'cuz Ipswich are the greatest football team
Just stumbled across this great photo compilation. Brought back a bunch of memories. I can still recognize all those players from the 70's/80's. Guess you don't forget the good stuff.

Greatest small club in the world. Here's hoping for a return to the Premiership next season.

  Can someone help me out here?
It's Thursday evening. I got lil' PZ to bed and figured I'd check out what game is on the deuce (does anyone still call it that?) tonight. Nothing.

The only explanation I could come up with was it violated some "only one US soccer even per week" rule or something as they are showing the US-China game this weekend. OK, whatever. I can deal with no game tonight.

So, I decide to get prepared. What's going on next week? OK, who's the Einstein who scheduled the Houston - Colorado game at the same time as the Guatemala Gold Cup game? Seriously, everyone wonders why TV ratings aren't doing better then the decision makers pull gaffs like this. It's no wonder the sport isn't doing better in this country.
