A Series of Questions…Answers, Please

I am, officially, going nucking futs in the other space, finally coming good on a concept I’ve wanted to try for a while.   Don’t count on it sticking around, though…I have a lousy record with such things.

What am I doing?  Posing a series of questions that came to me as I watched DC United fail to solve the ever-shifting riddle that was the Crew’s defense.  Rather than excerpt these, I’ll just post a title(-esque thingy; I’ll just say what it is I’m asking on the other side of the link….briefly) and let those so inclined click through.

– Was trading Alejandro Moreno the worst decision in the Houston Dynamo’s generally happy existence (e.g. not a lot of competition, there).

– Do DPs make us all look like rubes and yokels when they bust?

– Think ESPN’s broadcasts of MLS suck?  Too bad.  It’s not going to change anytime soon.

All righty, then.  I hope to get some answers or replies to those…but I’ll take insults…I guess.  But I am a wilting flower…

  1. For what it’s worth, I like it better when your blog was here rather than over at BS… hope it works out over there for you all though.

  2. Ditto. Hopefully it’ll feel more comfortable for all concerned soon.

  3. Jeff,

    I know it has been fashionable for Crew fans to talk about how the Moreno deal was no good for Dynamo, but that is waaay off. We got Joseph Ngwenya in the deal, who went on to tie for the team lead in goals AND score the equalizing goal in MLS Cup. Moreno, on the other hand, has, um, uh, hmmm, had a few nice goals in April. All hands together please for Senor Abril!!

    Now, don’t get me wrong, Moreno is a talented player who is playing well, at least right now, and seems to be a real stand up guy. There is also not a single Dynamo fan who didn’t love the guy, though his long disappearances stretched our patience. However, it is inaccurate in the extreme to say it was a bad deal for Dynamo. It was instead one of the greatest of all trades, one that actually helps out both teams.

  4. “There is also not a single Dynamo fan who didn’t love the guy, though his long disappearances stretched our patience.”

    Hmm…with that in mind, I wonder what you guys are thinking about Brian Ching these days ;-).

  5. Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Levelness.

  6. I, too, far more enjoyed your blog when it was here. The requirement for registration at BS is only the least of the mind-numbing hassles encountered there. The worst is the childish and often pointless comments, usually spiked with high levels of inanities and misspelled vitriol, that dominate the sites hosted there.

    With yours and Dan Loney’s relocation to BS, it becomes harder to find and become involved in thoughtful soccer discourse.

    I of course wish you luck at BS but will miss frequenting your site.


  7. I think Alejandro Moreno is one of the most underrated target players in the MLS. He mostly gets involved doing the dirty work in the trenches (I know he is almost always high on the leaderboard of fouls suffered) and helps his team in more ways then just finishing goals.

    The discussion on DPs is always interesting from both sides. Id say I fall somewhere in between on that one, they can both help and hurt the MLS and its franchises.

    ESPN does a respectable job of putting the game on TV, the presentation is relatively good, but the commentary is no where near the level you find any given weekend in the European Leagues.

    I hope you enjoy my takes, come check out my stuff at http://fourfour2.wordpress.com/ I just put a poll on who the most Dangerous Columbian Striker might be in the MLS. Check it out!

  8. То что бредомысли это точно 🙂
    Видно настиг творческий кризис. Мысле нет о чем писать 🙂

  9. Нет,по настоящиму улыбнул 8 пункт,просто представил такую ситуацию ))).

  10. Интересно, я даже и недумала об этом…
