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

The Stars are hosting a combine for all the local lads who want a shot at making the team. It is my understanding that it will be this Friday from 8-11am and then for a few hours in the afternoon.

Is anyone planning on checking it out? I think I will be there for a little bit in the AM as I have to be over that way for work.

It's heeeeeeere...

This is the latest list for the local combine. Sorry about the gaps, but local low-level guys can be difficult to get info on. The rec-leagues generally don't keep track of stats, stat keeping in the NPSL is spotty, to say the least, and if you can find anymore than a roster list on about half of the NJCAA teams, you consider yourself lucky. To my way of thinking, any college that doesn't provide a page for each player in the program is doing a disservice to their student-athletes. Well, enough of my whinging...

I am a 20 year old college student and I play soccer at the University of Northern Iowa and I'm looking for a way to stay in shape this summer and continue my playing career. I am a fast player and I like to use my speed to beat players. I also have a good strike and I do also play goalie and in college I have a record of 3-0-1 when I have started in goal. I love playing and I will play anywhere on the field that you need me. Thank you

And there it is. If you have any extra info on any of these guys, please feel free to post it.

Oh, and no combine contest for the local combine. However, there still is a Dorados de Sinaloa jersey unclaimed from last years combine (no signings, no winners) that will be up for grabs for this year's Invitee Combine in February. Look for it.

Something tells me they're going to have a hard time agreeing on a contract to draw Mr. Mijares away from his gig at Target corporate.

You'd think so, but...

In 2007, the Minnesota Thunder resigned a midfielder named Jeremiah Bass who had played for them from 2001 to 2003. Funny thing was, he wasn't making a living playing soccer when they resigned him. But, hey, let's let David La Vaque, writing for the StarTribune in a May 31st, 2008 article, tell the story...

"When it comes to his professional soccer career, however, Bass -- the league's reigning player of the week and the Thunder captain -- has not always been in the right place at the right time.

From 2001-03 he trained with the Thunder, but only played in exhibition games. In 2004, he traded soccer for a job with Ameriprise Financial. Love for the game kept him playing in local men's leagues, where he was reunited with Thunder coach Amos Magee and offered a second chance to play professional soccer.

Bass, 30, not only is captain this season, but he is also the team's oldest player -- and the only one working a fulltime job during the season.

He arrives at his downtown Minneapolis office by 6:30 a.m., drives up to the National Sports Center in Blaine for training sessions beginning at 9 a.m., and then goes back to work. Bass uses his vacation hours when the team goes on the road.

"It gets hard some days but I feel pretty comfortable with everything right now," he said.

"Something tells me that if he is good enough, Target can probably be worked around" conjectures

Metcalf was a starting goalkeeper in the first Stars Fantasy Camp, and played the full 90 (OK 80) minutes. Very important career note. Uhclem, you're slacking.

I attended the combine this morning. It was great to see Coach Manny, Craig and Kevin. (Kevin looked tired, but was sporting a nice sun tan.) There were 34 players who attended. One player at the combine was from Norway and had the first name of Ole, so he automatically received 20 bonus points (10 for being from Norway, and another 10 because his first name was Ole). I tried to play through my right quad strain, but my agent did not let me go out on the pitch. Rumor has it Liverpool might be call with Suarez serving his 8 match suspension. I want to be in top shape when I get my call-up.

Rumor has it that IMS will have a great article about the combine up on the WWW site soon.

Did any players standout? or possibly have the talent to play at that level?
