PSG is my adopted team but I would have to dump them as my euro team to follow.

But they're started to act like another rich club team, so I might dump them anyway.

Hey Freddy.

That's not happening. He's going to get paid a lot.


The stadium couldn't pay for him.

Channel 2 will be showing 6 games this year. They don't mention the other games but I'm guessing they will be available on FSN. This is a huge upgrade from being on 11.2 though.

I think he's doing it because there's a good chance he'll still end up with the Dynamo. All that matters is that he's back by May 12th.

Eddie Robinson retires

Quote:
Dynamo's Eddie Robinson retires

Eddie Robinson, who proudly did the dirty work in the shadows of the stars during his 11-year career, has exited into retirement quietly.

Robinson had already started working as a coach with the Dynamo Academy two weeks ago, and the club finally announced his retirement in a brief press release today.

"I don't want a lot of attention, to be honest, just want to get on with things," he said via text before the official announcement.

Now that Robinson is retired and the Montreal Impact hold Dynamo icon Brian Ching's rights after the club declined to protect him in the expansion draft last November, Brad Davis is the last remaining member of the original 2006 squad that moved from San Jose.

He was a big part of our championships, but you could tell he was a step behind the past couple of years. I'm glad he's still a part of the organization though.

And this leaves Brad Davis as the last player from the 2006 roster.

Today is the MLS Draft. It's on ESPN2 and the Dynamo gets the 18th overall pick.

Sucks that we will open the new stadium and Ching won't be there.

Dude has been great for Houston and obviously along with Brad Davis one our best veterans still with the team since they came to town.

Unless the draft picks pan out I see our offense taking a small step back this season.

I think the team will get better. There's only one way to go right? Losing ching is a blow but its a great opportunity for the youngens to develop into quality scorers; it wasnt like we were blowing away the opposition with our scoring. It was our defense and its still intact. also, Another season of meshing the newly acquired players like moffat and camargo will be beneficial to the quality of play.

Let's hope they acquire that Scottish fellow and he pans out as a dp. I'm Looking forward to seeing dynamo games on khou and going to the stadium.

I have high hopes for the dynamo franchise. Piss orange....

Like another poster mentioned, there is still a decent chance that Ching ends up back in Houston, but even if he doesn't make it back, this is the right thing to do.

What does Jessie Marsch have against Ching? He asked not to be drafted. Marsch did it. The Dynamo throw out multiple offers (granted, we don't know what they were and how good/bad they were) and all are rejected. It seems like Ching is being held there against his will.

Marsch and Ching do have a little beef with each other that dates back to when Marsch was playing. He called Ching a "diver" to the media and the two never reallyi patched things up after that. In the story about him going to Montreal, he admits that he and Marsch will have some work to do on their relationship because they have never really buried that hatchet.

Also from what I hear, the Dynamo don't have much to offer the Impact apart from players. The Dynamo aren't swimming in allocation money that would help sweeten such a trade.

I still can't blame Marsch or the Dynamo. Canetti and Kinnear tried to call Marsch and the Impact's bluff and they got schooled. Hopefully both parties can make a trade work that return Ching to H-town.
