The Daily Drool – MLS West: Kyle Nakazawa

9 Feb


Midfielder Kyle currently plays for the LA Galaxy. So why is he wearing a Philadelphia Union kit? Well, he was just traded to LA a scant 8 days ago. As a native Californian, I’m sure that it wasn’t a hardship to head back home.  Kyle was part of the US U17 team that played in the 2005 FIFA U17 World Cup in Peru. He scored 2 goals.

The Daily Drool: Santino Quaranta

26 Jan

Winger Santino played his whole career in the MLS: DC United, LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls and then made a return to DC United to end his career. He retired in 2011, but it was just announced yesterday that he’s coming out of retirement to join the new 6 team Premier League in India. There’s a really interesting article about the league and some of the other players who will be joining here. Santino represented the US at the U 17 and U 20 levels. He was also capped by the US National Team 15 times.

Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I Love Ya, Tomorrow! (And Other News Of Importance)

10 Jul

Ah, yes! Tomorrow starts the pre-season and I, for one, can’t wait. The above shot is from last year’s preseason at UCLA. Anyhow, the guys will be reporting at 9 AM sharp for their medical exams and then at 11:30 AM, they’re off to Los Angeles. I’m so excited! I can’t believe that I’ll be seeing them in less than two weeks! Whooooo!

Footballer Fashion Follies

29 Apr

OMG! So melj1213 from LiveJournal came up with a brilliant idea over on ONTD_Football. She posted this shot of Guti in his neon track suit (oh please, please, please let him sign to the NY Red Bulls!) and invited others to post their favorite football fashion fails. As you can imagine, our boys featured prominently along with many others. Go read the post, it’s hysterical. Here are some of my faves along with the LJ names of the people who posted them. If you have pix to add, please feel free to stick them in the comments here or over at LJ. This is too much fun (and we sorely need some right now).

Guti to MLS?

24 Apr

This was something I saw a few days ago on Twitter and have meant to put up (I took a screenshot of the tweet), but since I just stumbled across an actual article about it, now seems as good a time as any to post it.

Guti has said that he is not sure of his destination after the summer, but it will be either NYC, LA or staying put in Istanbul:  Besiktas’ Guti reveals he could make the move to Major League Soccer next season  Please, please, please let Guti join the NY Red Bulls! I think my head would explode if he did. This is a city that he can cause some amazing drama in and is it wrong of me that I want a front row seat? I can actually see him being more LA in attitude, but oh, NY needs some livening up right now. Guti might be just the ticket. Besides, the Galaxy would have to get rid of one of their designated players: Beckham, Donovan or Angel. I doubt the latter will happen since they just got JPA from NY. Donovan and Beckham probably aren’t going anywhere unless they want to. Should be interesting to see what happens. Guti says it will be decided by next month. Hmmmm…..
