Sitting here killing time on a Saturday morning- ripping some tunes too- when I come across an article off the as.com website. Since I know Spanish, and since the Spanish love their soccer, I take advantage of that site and marca.com as well. this morning i found quite the bombshell, not one but 2 articles discussing Real Madrid's possible fichaje, er singing, of Jozy Altidore. Wow! That's quite big. The first, which was one taking larger font size on the site, discusses Altidore's potential as Real's 3rd excomunitario spot. Euro clubs can only have 3 foreigners, which is why the Ronaldihnos of the world become "Spanish" citizens. Ridiculous. Futhermore, one of the columnists discusses Jozy's potential as a new Kanoute, the Sevilla striker. This is heady, amazing stuff, a premier Euro club wanting to fichar our youngest futbol star and a comparison to one of the best strikers in Europe, or at least one of the most productive.
and whither Freddy Adu? it sucks topping out at 5'6" and 150lbs if he's lucky.
