Our efforts aren't going unnoticed. Luke's fansite was mentioned by NY Times Goal Blog and has Luke's reaction to it...NY Times Goal Blog Small updates on Luke's performance Americansforlukerodgers.com I'll keep you all posted! :cheers:

Seems like its gone completely unnoticed - if Luke didn't even know about it, who that matters could have? But great effort from all involved, and that interview shows why he is worth the effort.

untrue..he knew about the website..even had me take down a pic of him he didnt like...lol. he just didnt know it was so involved and thought it was just a page that redirected to the petition site (which at first it was).

Any one know if there is a time limit where if you were denied for a Visa you would have to wait before you applied again? If not start now...so we can have him back by July.

When he signed with Lillestrom, there was something in the Norwegian press that he will be able to come back here in July.

I thought all that was that his contract wouldn't extend past the Norweigan season so he can attempt to come back here in July.. :unsure:

Right now hes nursing a hamstring injury and according to the people I spoke with over there he can reapply anytime. As far as coming back to play in the summer its a huge possibility. It may not be in his contract but its pretty much known there by the fans and staff if hes allowed back in the summer they will let him. That part rests on the US government though. Hes only played in a few games so far as a sub and has been injured the last couple games.

Sounds like he's already here!

RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

 

I don't care about NYCFC or the Cosmos.  I only care about Metro.  So MOTHERFUCK those two teams.

They're on the same spring to autumn calendar as MLS so it's not that.

But theya re on the same transfer window schedule, which might be where the confusion is. He'd hopefully be back in July, because its the window, not because its the end of their season.

Backe says there will be a "new" answer on Luke Rodgers' visa situation. if we do get him back, how do we get him on the field while Cooper is red hot? Either Henry has to move to midfield (and I don't see that happening) or Luke becomes a super sub.
"I'm sure we won't hear much from [Philly] because of the quality of our fans, of how loud and how boisterous they are," Petke said. "They're probably going to drown them out. But I welcome it. I love it..."

I think Luke becomes a super sub on for Cooper on the 70th or so
