Benny... Benny... Benny... Benny didn't jet. Je-e-e-e-et.

You probably heard Sporting KC made the shrewd move to pick up Benny Feilhaber's right from the Revs today. I can tell you that, had he failed to find that new MLS employment, the midfielder was going to look to Europe. He still has some admirers over here, including a few in Denmark that were eagerly watching the situation.

Great move for Kansas and for Benny. Good for him.

Greg: for Parkhurst, if you had to pick your dream destination for him (league or team), what would it be. The commenteriat seems to be pining for him to go to England, but I would much rather see him in Italy or Spain.

Personally, I kinda feel France would be a good move for him - but that's one place not calling him up at this time. It's still early in the race, though.

Matt said...

Wherever he goes, I hope he has a good chance of starting, because it's great to see him back in the national team picture.

Also, Lichaj had an assist in today's game...

I like this move

I've been telling everybody who will listen that it wouldn't surprise me at all to see Benny in the MVP race next season. Especially with the horses around him. Think DeRo in 2011 with a few notable provisos.

That's a classy assed MF pairing w\Zusi. Oh to be a forward on that team!

@Greg: Benny had a really bad season with NE so it's no surprise he isn't getting any offers from top leagues in Europe.

@Will Parchman @dikranovich: I don't think it's going to happen tbh, there will younger players than Benny like Corona and Mix who will be ahead of him in the crowded midfield depth chart.
