Pay attention to the next to last paragraph ... JdeJO reports that the Dynamo will bring in 3 midfielders this week including one with a brief stint in the EPL.
Also, Stuie was not on the bench again today for Bolton. I have not been able to find anything regarding the thigh strain still being an issue.
Rico is out for up to 4 weeks for Eintracht Frankfurt. He has yet to make an appearance for the Bundesliga club.

Also, just wanted to apologize for the downtime between posts. Alot has happened over the last week and I promise to get to it all shortly (Felix, 09 schedule, etc.).

At the same time, the team announced that they have traded Patrick Ianni to Seattle for a conditional pick in next years SuperDraft. The pick will be a third rounder unless Ianni plays 20 or more league and playoff games. If he does, the pick is upgraded to a second round slot. Since PI went to non-GA status during the off-season, he became a high-cost, low-production liability for both the team and the front office. It was obvious to most that if Boswell did re-up, Magnum was most likely a goner.
So what does this mean to the lineup in 09? I would imagine that Richard Mulrooney lost his starting right back position before he even got comfortable. I see James starting at right back with Roon backing up both James and Rico. It looks like Rico could potentially miss quite a few games because of USMNT duty (WCQ, Gold Cup & Confed Cup), so depth will be key again this year. Now let's go get El Chaco and we will be ready to roll!

While at San Diego State, Hall was a Semi-finalist for the Hermann Trophy and a 2-time All-American.

EDIT: The Dynamo surprised a few people with their 4th round pick - Hermann Trophy winner Marcus Tracy. Yes, the same Marcus Tracy that looked horrible in the NCAA Championship game. And the same Marcus Tracy that looked like another player with two first names in the Semi-Final game (OK - maybe not him ...). And yes, the same Tracy that has been linked to Danish side Aalborg. If he leaves, the Dynamo wasted a 4th round pick. If he stays, this could be highway robbery.
