AEG President and CEO, Tim Leiweke has given Dominic Kinnear the green light to bring a big name to Houston. The Dynamo who are having a under-par season for their standards should start looking now for a DP that will have an impact both on the field and off it, next season. Their first attempt at this failed miserably with the signing on Landin, an experiment that ended in him being released earlier this season. Any ideas on who Houston should go after?
Thierry Henry officially becomes the second designated player to sign with the New York Red Bulls. Henry will join the list of high-profile players and hopefully draw new interest to the Red Bulls as well as the MLS as a whole. It is going to be amazing to see a player of Henry’s calibre who still has a lot to offer to the game of football. The transfer can only be approved after the window opens on July 15th and Red Bulls executives expect Henry to make his debut on the 22nd when they take on Tottenham in a friendly at Red Bull Arena. A full news conference is expected to be held on Thursday at 1:15pm EST.
This move kind of went under the radar but former Chivas USA star, Sacha Klejstan made the jump to a historic European soccer club. Klejstan will be playing Champions League football come the new season, which will be a little different than what he has been used to for his entire professional career.
We wish him the best of luck, and hope he does his thing on the big stage.
I’m so sick and tired of hearing stuff like this. (This excerpt is from the Crew Xtra Blog)
“I’m working hard in training and I’m not getting on the roster, which I honestly think is ridiculous,” said Duka. “It’s not working out and there’s nothing I can do about it. I haven’t been happy.
“It’s tough to get motivated. I’m looking for playing time and I can’t even make the bench. I came out to play soccer and I don’t feel like I’m on the team… I’m not going to say I’m a better player than [Warzycha] has been choosing; I’m a different player. I definitely think I can contribute.
“Here I am and I’m not even on the bench, I’m not on the team. It’s like I’m on vacation. I’m here training and I’m on vacation.”
That was what Dilly Duka, the 8th pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft had to say about his lack of playing time. And all I have to say to that is, shut up. Under no circumstances should a rookie, and a rookie in Major League Soccer voice his feelings about playing time to the press. I mean the only reason he would want to do this is if he wants to alienate himself from the group and really get on the wrong side of the manager, Robert Warzycha. Personally I think this kid is proving to us that he is not ready soccer-wise (he can’t make the game-day squad) nor is he ready mentally, which is the problem with so many kids who leave school early to play professionally. If you can’t deal with sitting on the bench on a team that won the MLS cup two short seasons ago and still has a deep roster than you probably don’t have the head to be a pro. If the kid really wants to make it in the MLS and/or abroad one day, he needs to shut up, train hard and learn from the veterans around him. Oh yea, and he says he isn’t motivated…that really makes me laugh. This kid is 20 years old, making $213,000 (yes this is not a typo, that really says $213,000 and it’s insane the MLS would pay him that) guaranteed compensation from MLS (source: MLS Players Union) and he can’t get motivated. Please, Dilly give us all a break.
