I was finally able to get my MLS team together. My team name is Crew You. I might change it though, I'm not that happy with it.

Woke up to a nice email from the mods.... four posts deleted. But the Lucy Becker picture remains!

Might there be a post hangover from yesterday (i.e. people actually have to get some work done)?

Over/Under - 360

I didn't post much yesterday... had taken the day off work. So yeah, as soon as I finish my coffee, I'll be off and running on 2 days worth of work.

Honestly, if you guys could help me doctor up a nice resume, I think I could work the Qatari's for a couple mil and become their soccer coach.

The way things are going, I don't think it's that far fetched.

I don't know much about the current technical director? Who is it? Does this guy have a good eye for talent?

March 3, 2011  12:30 PM ET

Hmm, looking at this more it appears there ??is no current?? technical director for the USMNT whereas Claudio Reyna is the youth technical director?

No- you can join at anytime.

You can join now, name your team, and have unlimited trades until first game deadline (usually an hour or so before kickoff)

Then limited to ( I think) one free trade a week

Make bielsa head coach. Bradley is a dunce. Saw sons first game with Aston villa. He looked poor.
