Not so schnell

I'm not sure how many of you have seen it, but we may as well nip the bud before false hopes bloom. A German Goal report claims that Jermaine Jones wants an MLS move this summer, but that Schalke don't want to let him go.

However, his agent assured me today that - while Jones intends on playing in MLS before he's done - such talk is premature. Just as an FYI: the midfielder is signed with Schalke through the end of next season.

Chelsea vs Manchester City at Busch Stadium? It would be incredible.

Considering that you can foul the shit out of people and get away with it in MLS, Jones could be epic. Personally, I'd like to see him there now. He could kneecap half the CONCACAF players in MLS in a month. We'd cruise to WC qualification then. :)

Why would he want to come here? I have a hard time believing they'd pay him more over here, and he's not exactly DP material.

Jamie said...

He's not? I'd certainly beg to differ.

Danny said...

Pretty sure he's mentioned before that he loves being in the US so it may be more of a decision based on a lifestyle he wants outside of the game.

can you people even imagine what a fully recovered, in form charlie davies could do for the US national team. along with a fully motivated LD. my god, this team could just be on the verge of going gangbusters.

and the best thing is going to be that the next two or three world cup qualifying opponents will not even be expecting it.

i would love to go into the saprissa sitting on 13 points with a chance to clinch against those stupid little banana heads.

- Jamie, I would not pay DP dollars for a hard working DM with bite. You can get sufficient cover with a much cheaper option. He's not a passing dynamo. He's also a walking red card- in MLS with retroactive fines and suspensions, plays like that head blow on Ruiz in Colorado would keep him out three games, and then where is your investment? For club and country, he's more of a loose cannon then a team bulwark.

its a blood bath at the sporting news. auf weidershen!!!

Matt said...

I sure hope you aren't holding your breath on a fully recovered (pre accident) Charlie...

dikranovich said...

matthew, charlie may have lost a step, but he may have lost a step and then gained it back. or he might be in the process of gaining it back, but whatever, the guy had the "it" factor like it was nobodies business. and you dont lose that.

we thought, with the most eternally optimistic reason that he would heal in time for south africa, but the truth is his injuries take 18+ months.

our boy is going to be on the gold cup team and he is going to brutalize. dont be shocked if by next fall he is not pushing for time in wcq's.

Dik - I'll take that wager. As a DCU fan, I think you can admit that at 18-plus months, not only had Davies lost a step, he sure as heck didn't have "it" anymore.

He is so far off the USMNT radar right now. You're going to see young guns like Villareal and Jack Mc. before you see any second coming of Davies.
