This Week In The Comments [Nordic Edition]

A little late (our apologies!!!!) but here's your weekly dose of zeitgeist.

Remember this guy? Quick, pronounce his name!
Remember this guy? Quick, pronounce his name!

January 6th: Player Profile #9: Michael Gspurning

AJ Hidell

He should change his name to Gfrei.

FC Sasquatch

I don't care what his name is as long as he Gstops the Gball.


January 9th: Sounders sign Sean Okoli, Aaron Kovar to Homegrown Player contracts


Lets all just remember that Yedlin has set the bar very high

Don’t expect every homegrown to transition as seamlessly. It was said that if drafted, Yedlin would have easily been a top ten pick. Then take into consideration that only a few defensive players draft high. I wish all the best and hope for the same success to Okili and Kovar but if they take a year or so to transition into pro play, don’t be surprised.


I thought that was the pre-match fitness test for players coming off injury

"Well, Brad was looking good in practice, but we set up the wall prior to warm-ups and he just couldn’t get through it, so we’ll give him another week and then give it a go."

January 10th: Obafemi Martins move to Turkish club falls short, again

putitinthenet has a great comment that is a tad too long to quote here. Check it out!

sidereal probably needs context, but who cares.

Unfortunately, the WPL team just goes by Llanfair

Not Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobyll-llantysiliogogogoch

January 10th: Open Flavor Friday - stadium/airport/amusement park food

It was a bit of a slow news week, so I am taking this opportunity to push my agenda.


AND we will never go to seaworld, right? RIGHT.

We went to disneyland last fall and they had macaroni and cheese pizza and giant turkey legs. Mmmmmm.

Thank you.

January 10th: Report: Sounders interested in Steffen Hagen of Odds BK

I feel guilty that Aaron Campeau always makes this list, but look at the sheer quality of his work:

I really want to sign him just for the injuring himself on the toilet thing


one consistently positive trend continues this offseason

we are targeting a lot of team captains this year. Marshall, Frei, Hagen. we could potentially have both CBs, our GK Frei, honeybadger + Evans + Dempsey as starters with extensive leadership/captaining experience at a high level.

I really think that bodes well for the team going into 2014. Targeting attacking midfield quality is obviously huge – but leadership guys in defensive roles are the foundation of championship teams.

AH – Lets ink some studs and own 2014!
