Keller joins the American Foreign Legion at Craven Cottage. Now I appreciate all that Keller has done in a US shirt and that he's had a long and accomplished professional career, but I really think Kasey is a bit past it. Does that mean he can't be a serviceable backup for Fulham - not at all. I'm guessing that Niemi's injury is worse than previously thought, because I don't see Keller as displacing him, and despite some recent gaffes, I'm not entirely sure that Keller is an upgrade over Warner - at least not the Keller we saw at the Copa.
Maybe he's just a relegation junky. Going down with Gladbach last year wasn't enough for him, so he's going to give it a shot with Fulham. Joking aside, good for Kasey. Now let's hope he can find a castle to occupy in London.
FC Dallas ups the ante. So let's get this straight. Dallas trades away a young prima-donna with an attitude problem who loves to run at defenders and pull out the stops when it comes to trickery for an aged, expensive (makes him sound like a fine wine, or should that be whine?) prima-donna with an attitude problem who loves to run at defenders and pull out the stops when it comes to trickery?
Actually, Dallas has just made their play for the Supporters' Shield by augmenting an already impressive midfield with some quality width - now we'll see what the other three sides that are truly in the hunt have to say. DC just handed their final senior roster spot to Marc Burch, so any upgrades are not going to be of the "instant impact" variety unless we're looking at trades and I don't see that happening. The Revs? Please - the Krafts are way too tight with the purse-strings to make a major investment. So that leaves the Dynamo, who are arguably one of the deepest, if not the deepest, team in MLS. Your move, Mr. Bond.
