  2. JJ says:

    Thanks for your Blog! It’s great!

  3. Chris says:

    Arreola? Damn, bet that’s a sensitive area for him.

  4. jojo says:

    nobody cares – glorified AYSO match

  5. MC Pharaoh says:

    Arreola & Garcia impressing me so far on Prime. Ofcourse Mattocks too who seems on a different level than everyone. I like Perry & Chavez on Adipower’s defense. They are smooth on the ball. Perry was beat twice 1v1, once by Arreola, once by Mattocks, but otherwise has been very solid. He did just enough after getting beat to set the attackers off. Good right fullback prospect imo.

  6. MC Pharaoh says:

    The commentators MLS has for the Combine who also do their podcasts are really sayin some really stupid things tbh..

  7. Anthony says:

    Honestly I think they are doing a good job. Stop Bitching.

  8. MC Pharaoh says:

    Criticism of Perry was silly. The one guy was hounding him for being “beat” & he had a very good game. That was where that was pointed. Should have elaborated. Dont have a bitch fit next time.

  9. JJ says:

    I agree, they are terrible. The play-by-play guy sounds like Obama. Can’t wait for Arlo.

  10. David St. Hubbins says:

    Townsend looked good. Hoffman best player of the game. Combined well and scored. Rowe looked good. Int’l kids had some good moments… is it enough to overcome having to burn an int’l slot on them? Malluce looked good. Arreola may have solidified his position… took defenders on dribble and had some decent crosses.

  11. David St. Hubbins says:

    OH yes and Silva was good too. Defenders… not so much aside from maybe Hedges but he just seems vanilla to me.

  12. David St. Hubbins says:

    Cascio and Martinez both hit the post in the first half of game 2.

  13. abc says:

    Question: last year there were at least three foreign players brought in for the combine (Cardozo, Plata, Estupinan), are there any this year?

  14. jp says:

    What field are they playing on this year in Fort Lauderdale?

  15. Rick says:

    The Eurosnob was someone who couldn’t cut it at youth levels so he vents his shame by ripping on American players far better than him.

  16. Cromulent says:

    Did Luke Holmes play today?

  17. jim bob says:


  18. Murph says:

    Only 7 foriegners? They should open the floodgates for young guys that want to prove themselves in the US. I’m sure there are many more than 7 youngsters.

  19. T Sealy says:

    Whiny tea-bagger

  20. Depo says:

    Hoping LA is looking at Arreola…seems like a perfect fit

  21. gigi says:

    Former England youth international Jason Banton, Glenir Garcia, Yuri Gorentzvaig, Kohei Yamada, Benjamin Ubierna, Emiliano Bonfigli and Aldo Paniagua. – Glanir Garcia played 2 games with cruz azul, he was born in 1989, Yuri Gorentzvaig i think is brazilian, and kohei yamada is japenese.

  22. Yaznasty says:

    Yeah he played the second half of the second game.

  23. Terry Becker says:

    I can’t wait for January 12 to come soon enough……
