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.
