    Zavagnin????????? You are joking, correct?

  2. tyduffy says:

    Why call up someone for a friendly who has no shot at playing in 2010? It makes no sense whatsoever.

    I agree with both comments. What the hell is the point of brining in a 33 year old who in his prime couldn’t even make the 23 man World Cup squad?

  4. Josiah of Footy Fame says:

    Bradley is slowly but surely proving to be another Arena who is willing to call up any scrub from MLS to get them training and a cap.
