We played the U-17's today at 10 am. Oh man, it was a doozy. Ha these kids were actully 15 and well I kinda pushed a kid in the face that was 14 after he cleated me at the top of my calf for no reason. Gettin firey up in here...We won with a comfortable 6-0 or 8-0 something like that.
Lineup for 1st 45 minutes: Zayner, O'rourke, Marshall, Padula
Ekpo, Moffat, Gaven, Rogers
Scheletto, Herrera

Lineup for 2nd 30 minutes: Hejduk (coming back from an injury),Bruener, Marshall (first 15, Oughton came in and Burns switched to center back for last 15 and duncan to midfield), Francis
Burns, Russian dude (sorry do not know how to spell his name), Camille (Polish dude), Elenio
Lenhart, Renteria

Lineup for 3rd 30 minutes: Grendi, Bruener, Burns, Francis(came out at 15 and Elenio came back in, Elenio to right back and Grendi to left back)
Camille, Oughton, Othaniel, DuDu
Dike, Garey

On to Sergio. Honestly we were all very surprised at how well he moved and interchanged. Guille and him looked like they have played many times before. Sergio probably completed 90% of his passes. He and Guille together connected for at least 3 breakaways and at least 2 goals. He is very composed and he knows the perfect time to get open. He is not like a post forward like Lenhart or Moreno, but he is very clever in getting away from defenders so he does not have to post up.

Again we were only playing 15 year olds. I mean these kids were born around 1995. What the crap man, that was the first time I actually felt like I was the old dude. Shoot I am only 25, but still 10 years older than these kids.

We play some good competition this week with TFC and DC, our two favorite teams in the league, haha, any Crew fans want to come down and heckle? We would love to have you guys here.

I will tell you more next game how things go. Again, it was his only second day of training in the past month and he looked like a natural up there with us. So, here is your sigh of relief thus far in knowing what Sergio can do.

Hey man first off great blog keep up the good work! It's great to get a players perspective on the team and the league. Not something ya see every day, and I find it very interesting.

Secondly I'm sure we'd all love to go give Terrible FC and Scum a hard time and get away from this huge snow storm here in C-bus.

Keep up the Massive work! Go Crew

Love the blog. Hope you keep this going throughout the season. Sounds like Surge-e-o will fit in nicely with the amazing chemistry this team has. Looking forward to the Champions League quarters and the start of the 2010 season!

What is the inside joke with misspelling Bruener?

Wow Jed, your blog is exploding. You could end up having a ton of followers. You should monetize it. Also, you should let me guest post some time. I know I'm not a soccer player, nor do I know anything about soccer, but my wife got me a cool Zayner jersey for my birthday, and you're my boy so I love you.

Peace out.

I think we could easily round up some fans to come down and heckle DC and TFC... think the Crew would pay for a 15 seater van and gas money? I'll drive!!

15 year olds then TFC, so the next step in competition should be St Louis Athletica, correct?
