Well, let’s hope there’s no repeat of Tuesday’s temblor, but it seemed an apt headline in more ways than one as you’ll find out if you keep reading.
*The U.S. Men’s Olympic Team drew 0-0 with the Ivory Coast in Hong Kong in what was the wee hours of the morning our time. Cameroon is up Saturday in the final tune-up before the games begin.
*The Galaxy have finally confirmed their interest in Nolberto Solano (noteworthy in that Galaxy officials usually never confirm that sort of thing).
*Meanwhile, ultimate Soccer Insider Steven Goff reports on “rumblings” (told ya) that Galaxy owner Uncle Phil Anschutz is “none too pleased” with the performance of his team.
One would think General Manager Alexi Lalas might be on the hot seat, so why has Coach Ruud Gullit put his home up for sale? Especially considering the crummy housing market right now and the fact he presumably hasn’t owned it long. Take a peek.
*The winner of tonight’s second SuperLiga semifinal between the New England Revolution and Atlante (live 5 p.m. on Telefutura) will face Houston in next week’s final after the Dynamo Tuesday dispatched cup holders Pachuca, 2-0.
*Lastly, AYSO has come home.
