Sunday Sidenotes

The Wiz are a bit of an enigma, but they will need a legitmate scoring threat on offense in order to make the playoffs again in 2008. At this point, that scoring threat appears to be absent.”

After unloading veterans Nick Garcia and Jose Burciaga, Onalfo knew that his youngsters would be key to the Wizards making the playoffs for the first time in three seasons.”

  • Scott Sealy will not be called up for Trinidad and Tobago’s March 19th friendly against El Salvador.  Coach Maturana named his roster Friday, which includes a surprise: MLS striker Robbie Findley.  Though Robbie played for the USMNT against Switzerland and was born in Arizona, he has dual citizenship and is not yet cap-tied.
  • Seeing as the Wizards are short on striker options with Trujillo’s paperwork pending and Davy Arnaud out injured, thought I would check to see how Yura Movsisyan was doing for RSL this pre-season.  The answer?  Very, very well.  In their first exhibition, Yura scored 4 goals in a 7-0 win over the PDL’s Ventura County Fusion.  The next day, he had the game-winner in a 4-1 win over Santa Barbara Community College.  He started, but did not score in their 3-1 win over Florida International University yesterday. 
  • Josh Wolff started and played 65 minutes in 1860 Munich’s 1-0 loss to Hoffenheim today.  The Bundesliga 2 game saw 3 soft red cards awarded, one to fellow American Gregg Berhalter in the 50th minute.
