Episode 3 Show Notes

Kicks - By Paul Revere and the Raiders
(ok granted, it's a loose reference to the Midnight Ride, but with a title like KICKS it gets extra soccer credit)
Xica da Silva - By Jorge Ben (I know it's not original, but you can blame Peter Brown on CSRN's Divers and Cheats for introducing it to me)

  1. From the Revs blog "Also listed as probable is Sainey Nyassi with a left knee contusion, and while the 20-year-old midfielder did not play this past weekend against Chicago, he was available on the bench and did train today with seemingly no ill effects."

    So he WAS benched. 'Nuff said.

  2. If you get two starters out of the MLS draft, you are winning. The more picks you have, the better the chances in getting starters. There was nobody left when our pick turned up and I would take Alston over anyone in that draft class regardless.

    And Franchino? He wasn't a starter when we got rid of him.
