Thought Long deserved a look (esp. considering the players called up).


This time last year I would have said this is the stupidest thing Ive ever heard. That being said, I did hold my breath for a second while running through American CBs in MLS in my head while reading the list.

Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

Great for him, and deserved, but not thrilled about this... we saw what a negative impact it had on Sacha when he didn't get a full pre-season with the team, and if they are looking to give Adams a bigger role, especially in the middle of the field, he'll need all the pre-season minutes he can get.

Sacha's getting old had a negative impact on Sacha, not a training camp.

My concern isn't about fitness, it's about Adams having to maybe learn a new position, and a position requiring him to be in synch with everyone around him.   If  we keep him as a wingback, I have less concern.
