07:58 AM ET 03.02 | Harry Redknapp has revealed he was ready to walk away from Tottenham last season, despite the lure of Champions League football, for a job in the United Arab Emirates. Redknapp was offered a job by Dubai club Al-Ahli and Redknapp admits he was interested in leaving England for the challenge. "There was an offer and I was intrigued. I love coming here [to Dubai]. It's a great way of life; it's safe, no trouble, you can do things, you can go out in the open. I was interested," said Redknapp to the Tottenham website.

Warchest happened. He's not Sigi. And he's stubborn enough to break down the team just to prove it.

For those curious, DCU home shirts are on backorder until JUNE. I may head down to the stadium store today to see if I have better luck.

I'm not totally set on getting a CD9 jersey. I may go throwback and get Pope 23 or I may do Najar 14

I don't think the MLS is popular enough to have an "America's Team", to be honest.

I would guess, though, that the Red Bulls and Galaxy are the most popular teams.

Put it to you this way.

The Sounders is the America's Team that "America" would love for you to believe.

However DCU is the closest thing to a "Real" America's Team. The fact they still play in RFK is further proof of that.

That sounds good. I am also considering Kitchen or McCarty.

Let me know if the trip to the stadium store works out for you.

I'm sure the Pope jersey would have to be customized which would mean I wouldn't get that until June. I'm assuming the store at the stadium keeps current roster jerseys.

I think what happened to the Crew last night has more to do with who they didn't face in the first leg.

I thought RSL's midfield actually showed up last night, especially compared to how they played in Columbus. Beckerman was better, and Javier Morales was his usually pesky and dangerous self.

Saborio had a hell of a game, and I'd say the unsung player of RSL is Andy Williams. He does a lot out on that right side.

Kreis has another very good team this year.

Robbie Findely, who?
