    Best of luck, we are going to need it!!, hopefully they´ll make us proud.

  2. elgringorico says:

    Did look like Mo was playing defense

  3. Alex G says:

    It´s just a scrimmage, maybe, we don´t know JK ultimate plan for the game.

  4. Old School says:

    Looked like it but that may just be due to an abbreviated 5 v 5 match up.

  5. Old School says:

    I know Beckerman has his fair share of haters, detractors and non-believers but I love the guy and respect his game.

  6. Raymon says:

    Yah. I expected a few more “Dude”s and “Right on”s in his dialect. Somewhat disappointed that he sounds like an Ivy League English major.

  7. Old School says:

    If you hear him talk about Mexico, you can hear the respect but also rivalry in his voice/words.

    Maybe I’m projecting but I took that away from his soundbites.

    Also, people may think I’m crazy but I’d take 11 Beckerman’s over 11 Chandler’s every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Say what you will but I truly mean that.

  8. WTFman says:

    I’ll take a double serving of Beckerman on a lonely Saturday night too….if yaknowahdahmean! ;0

  9. WTFman says:

    I could of sworn on a ninja fart that Mo was playing lone striker up top….

  10. Old School says:

    Dude, WTFman, are you a homosexual?

  11. Old School says:

    Using my name to respond is fun….although Ives can track the IP address.

    Just sayin…

  12. Ryan Nanez says:

    haha i think the WTF stands for want to F*** aint nothing wrong if he actually is gay tho

  13. Spank says:

    You’re right! At least Beckerman doesn’t Hit It and Quit It.

  14. Benny says:

    Pretty interesting note:
    In that 0-0 draw in 1997 WC qualifying match in Azteca, the U.S. was reduced to 10 men when Jeff Agoos was shown a red in the 32nd minute for elbowing Mexico’s Pavel Pardo. The USA also was without four regular starters in goalkeeper Kasey Keller (thumb) and midfielders Claudio Reyna (suspension), Tab Ramos (ACL) and Earnie Stewart (calf).

  15. Louis Z says:

    I don’t hate the guy, just don’t think he is the best DM player we have. For my money I would like to see Williams

  16. Illmatic74 says:

    We could actually field 11 Kyle Beckermans since we have so many defensive midfielders.

  17. Spank says:

    Nice repost Benny… Hoping to get more replys this time around?

  18. Old School says:



  19. Old School says:

    I won’t disagree with that opinion at all.

  20. Spank says:

    oops… Replies*

  21. iheartscotch says:

    Off topic- but I was just watching some old videos to get pumped up and saw Holden and Davies. I’ve come to terms with Davies not making it back as he cant even get regular time with club right now but does anyone have an injury/timeline update on Holden getting back to training with Bolton?

  22. Benny says:

    Nope, I was just wanted to add the clip to it. Some people might like to watch.

  23. Illmatic74 says:

    I have no idea. Holden and Wilshere must have angered some spirits when they were at Bolton together. They have both been cursed when it comes to injuries.

  24. Eric says:

    Has Fabian’s English always been that good?

  25. Benny says:

    Hoping to be more obnoxious this time around, creep?

  26. Spank says:

    No, it was a valid question. And thanks for the clip cuz i acutally did want to watch.

  27. USMNT Fan says:

    Based on the video we could see this:


  28. sa says:

    Yes. Jones has improved significantly but FJ’s has always been quite good.

  29. hogatroge says:

    What do you care if he IS a homosexual?

    Would you have a problem with that?

  30. hogatroge says:

    For the first few seconds you couldn’t really pick out his accent.

  31. SilverRey says:

    Wow! What a field!! Where is that facility?

  32. BigBirdLenny says:

    Pumas’s practice field I believe.

  33. Jamie Z. says:

    I know, right? He’s more articulate than Clint Dempsey.

  34. Benny says:

    Sorry about that.I apologize.

  35. KC says:

    I can see a Pumas logo but regardless, it is a pretty impressive setting

  36. GW says:

    I don’t know. They must have old Behind the Crest videos. I remember Fabian having much more of an accent in interviews around the time of the A & B qualifier.

    Of course,it is likely that he now feels much more at ease, though how that would impact his accent I’m not sure. Anyway he seems quite happy and at ease.

  37. GW says:

    Those “cliffs” look like some sort of “El Morro” (castle) structure.

    Pretty unique for a practice facility.

  38. Dan says:

    You’d think they would destroy a lot of balls with errant shots that hit the cliffs.

  39. GW says:

    The last return date I remembered was October this year. But I’m thinking they will be very conservative.

    Bolton has kept a pretty good squad together and the thinking seems to be when Stu and Lee return from injury it will be like buying a new midfield.

    Obviously promotion is job one.

  40. wildchild says:

    Yeah for sure! That practice facility is dope! Agree that Beckerman is very articulate. Torres surprised me! You’d think for how much time he spends down South that he’d have more of anaccent but sounds straight from good ol boy Tejas!

  41. Ulysses says:

    Mo’s plan is to keep everyone onside! :0

  42. darren says:

    Yep…. Blah.

    No SKC, No SJ.
