The future of the 34 year old has been uncertain since he left AEK Athens in the spring [due to financial problems at the club] Then it quotes him that he hasn´t been following the MLS enough to estimate its strength, but that he knows that it´s growing in popularity

For anyone wondering further, there's more info on the character herself here. Just had to share, because it blew my mind when I noticed it.

They basically take over for FOX Soccer, which will apparently no longer broadcast MLS games. So MLS will actually on be national broadcast TV a couple times a year.

"Frustration Index" at the half.

We've heard more than once that the Sounders have had a large number of goals or saves of the week go against them this year.  I had time to kill and a little bit of curiosity toward verifying that...

"It's been mentioned that I'd do well, blah, blah. And as a player, you never know when your last year will be. And I'm not convinced I've had my last day." He seems excited to be there. I'm sure his analysis will keep Fernando Vina and Aaron Boone off balance.
