It's wazzup for dinner.

Let's get our weekly catch-up out of the way before Will takes over with CONCACAF Champions League coverage...

- Dempsey double downs Bolton, sets Fulham record
- Postcard From Europe w/ Oguchi Onyewu
- A quick word with weekend AaB hero Chris Rolfe
- The latest Top 5 Continental Shifts at S365
- Groove to Stevie Wonder's "I Wish" - as RDA advises

As an added bonus, how about a few stray Gooch quotes that didn't make Postcard?

On Friday's leave-it-late win at ADO Den Haag:

"We were lucky to get the win because our goalie made some great saves. It's a tough place to play."

On not hearing any feedback from AC Milan over his Twente loan:

"They have their own title race to worry about more than about me, individually."

On the USMNT's aim to take Gold Cup back from Mexico:

"The veterans want to get that title back to the US and the youngsters will understand, if they don't already, the importance of it."

On the rough Argentina and Paraguay "friendlies":

"Neither of the last two games were so friendly."

On the atmosphere in Enschede these days:

"After last year's victory, you can see the whole city behind the team. They are really pushing for us to win the second one. It's a good feeling when everyone is behind the same cause."


Finally, there's more than one NSC pal in that RSL side, but I'm personally pulling for a Nat Borchers winner.
Enjoy the game, folks.
