  1. bad news for Gibbs, Charlton and US Soccer. Gibbs would have been the obvious replacement for Eddie Pope after his red card in the Italy game and actually may have started instead of cherundolo
    (sp?) on the right side had it not been for the untimely injury.

  2. Charlton has released it via their media relations attache. A real pity for the Addicks as they were counting on Gibbs to be a key contributor in the upcoming campaign after being bought from a Dutch side.

  3. Gibbs is just the latest of the most skilled American players to suffer from chronic injuries. Claudio Reyna, John O’Brien, Chris Armas and Frankie Hedjuk were almost always hurt when the national team needed them the most.
