    And then Gooch fired up a chainsaw and sliced the goalposts into kindling.

      Hopefully. He’s a very small guy and most guys that size don’t translate well to the BPL unless they are supremely fast and/or supremely skilled (and I’m not sure about his speed), so it will be interesting to see if he will break through this season. He seems to be very strong for a little guy, so maybe size won’t be such an issue. Thompson seems to have the classic attributes for wing play so it’s easier to project him. Gooch is kind of a unique cat.

        Thanks for the insights. I’m not sure my post deserved your thoughtful response, as I was merely making a silly joke based on the shared (nick)name with the very big Oguchi Onyewu. But I’m glad you responded in the way you did.

        Well, Messi is pretty small and in the BPL you have had Michael Owen and Jermaine Defoe who are around 5’6″. That’s just off the top of my head, I’m sure there are many more.

    Central America is having its qualifying round robin tournament right now in El Salvador…after three rounds…Panama is dominating has 9 of 9 points beating out Costa Rica and Honduras already and trouncing Belize…Ismael Diaz is leading the goal scoring sheet and this Panama is the same base of the one that qualified for the U-17 World Cup, of which we fail to do so…some of those players like Shaquell, Requejo and and Donovan are part of that generation…

      Oh you mean the qualifying where Flores sat on the bench? The US lost to Honduras and sat its best player on the bench. Thanks Richie. I am sorry but this U20 is way better than its 17 counterpart.
