Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

United announced that Andrew Dykstra, who has made 17 MLS appearances and currently plays for the Charleston Battery, was brought into camp as well.

saw this as well. I know Dykstra got a German Passport in the off season and was hoping to go to Europe. I guess we need to look for a Keeper as well!

From the Soccer Insider Blog...

United is in talks with former Chicago Fire goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra (Osbourn Park High School, Virginia Commonwealth University), who has been in camp for a month and is in line for the third slot on the depth chart.

I would think, he could make more money here, than in DC as a 3rd choice

Or he could still sign with DC but spend the season with us on loan....kinda like Tim Melia did a couple of years ago when he was Real Salt Lake's 3rd GK.

good discussion with Auggie and Andrew at the Regiment meeting on Wed.

Lots going on behind the scenes as you would expect at this time of year but from what we were told, this year is going to shape up nicely.

Player trials start today at 3pm with a scrimmage tomorrow at 2 or 2:30.
Ill be out there for that at least

that kept both Pascale and Mike McGinty both in Richmond instead of going to DC as 3rd Keepers.

So how does that work when an MLS player goes on loan to a lower league team, does that team pay his existing MLS salary or do they renegotiate?

the new MLS league minimum is 32,000, so he might make more money up there.
