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 Minnesota Stars are under new ownership, and the signs of that new ownership groupís influence are starting to show.

The Stars have been known for fielding one of the best teams in the NASL on a consistent basis under head coach Manny Lagos despite not having the financial backing of an owner. Now, with new Stars owner Bill McGuire backing the team, the Stars look poised to build a powerhouse.

Enter Pablo Campos, the reigning NASL MVP. The Stars are set to sign Campos to a new deal, snatching the free agent away from the San Antonio Scorpions , sources told SBI on Sunday.


Campos scored 20 goals for the Scorpions to win the NASL Golden Boot and MVP honors. A former Real Salt Lake forward, Campos is expected to be joined on the Minnesota squad by midfielder Bryan Arguez, who is also expected to be signed by the Stars in the coming days.

What do you think of these developments? See anybody stopping Minnesota in the NASL this year?

This deserves it's own thread.

In fairness, he had something like a 20 to 1 goals to headbutts ratio last year.

I expect we are not done hearing about some very nice signings. Can't wait till the legal stuff is done with the Stars and we start hearing officially about all of this.

Yeah, we might be looking at some fantasy football stuff here. We might have to spend some time adjusting to not being the underdogs all the time.

That guy's headbutt problem had a lot more to do with timing than quantity.

I'm waiting for someone to talk about how the league is stoooopid for allowing this signing to happen, until then I'm stoked. Just like the Sanchez signing!

I was thinking the same thing.

This [censored] team.

From the things I've heard we'll nigh be competitive with MLS squads.

LET THE KRAKEN RISE.
