New England Soccer Today’s Brian O’Connell takes a look at reports out of Colombia that suggest Jose Moreno may be remaining with Manizales-based Once Caldas. Included are the Revolution’s official comments on the current situation, which state that Moreno signed his contract and loan documents last week and that the P-1 Visa and ITC processes are already underway.
Peter Gobis of the Attleboro Sun Chronicle addresses the Revolution’s midfield, pinpointing Shalrie Joseph and Benny Feilhaber as a pair to build the on-field formation around. Though Head Coach Jay Heaps is still tinkering, he says, “we're going to start building what kind of formation we're going to play built around the players we have."
Clubs all over the nation are tapping into the emerging talent from Gambia. Paul Kennedy of Soccer America highlights New England Revolution players Kenny Mansally and Sainey Nyassi. The pair was discovered while playing for Gambia's Baby Scorpions at the 2007 Under-20 World Cup in Canada.
