    Yura Movsisyan is moving to Denmark, not Norway.

    Nice post. I guess I didn’t realize just how many players were returning to MLS since the majority of my MLS attention is paid just to the Chicago Fire instead of the league as a whole. Plus I’m an American Euro Snob who spends the majority of my time following the Prem.

    2nd post Kartik post today I’ve enjoyed! I have had a long string of frustrating disagreements with you lately but I’ll give props when deserved. Good job.

    if theres something with enough actual knowledge of USL-2 and Football League Two to compare them, they’re probably not online or reading blogs.

    Sebby Harris Michigan Bucks ——-> Northampton Town (ENG 3)

    Northampton was relegated to Football League Two. So that is really ENG 4.
    How does Football League Two compare to USL-2 in terms of skill and ability. I realize that they have the potential to return to League One (and possibly move up from there), but head to head, how would you compare the two leagues? Is this a good move for an American player? Especially on a six month contract?

    From what I have gathered, Clark’s transfer offer has been officially denied and the hasn’t been an acceptable offer sense. He’s contract is over at the end of the season and he’ll be up for grabs so it looks like they will wait until then. The Dynamo still haven’t ruled out resigning him but i see that as unlikely.

    there has been no confirmation by MLS, Houston Dynamo, Clark, other dynamo players via twitter or the media that follows the Dynamo about the livorno move. I’m not sure what keeping mum would do, you’d think, if anything, learning that one of the teams players is making a move to the the italian league would garner interest/support for the rest of the season.

    I think it may have to do with the Dynamo. I mean you’re top of the table in the West right now and you’re about to lose your best player before the season ends? They’ll make sure they can hold on until the end of the season for competition’s sake.

    I do not understand why MLS makes players wait until January. By the time Ricardo Clark gets to Livorno they could very well be in the relegation zone.
