11/18/09: Crew Looking At Honduran Players, Maybe Carlos Costly? Warzycha Headed To South Africa.

**According to Shawn Mitchell, Robert Warzycha and Brian Bliss were in Miami tonight to scout the Peru vs. Honduras Friendly at Landshark Stadium. Both clubs used their A rosters and Bliss has shown interest in Honduran players. Probably a good call since a lot of them are playing in the EPL these days.

So, whose a player the Crew could be after? How about Carlos Costly? Costly plays for GKS Belchatow in Poland. Maybe he is getting a little sick of cold, Eastern Europe and wants to be a little closer to Honduras.

The Crew could possibly sign Costly as a DP, that could explain why they're looking to drop down Guillermo's salary. Guillermo won't likely be enough to compete in CONCACAF.

**From here, Warzycha is headed to South Africa:
Major League Soccer and adidas announced today that Crew head coach Robert Warzycha has been selected to lead 18 MLS 'Generation adidas' players to South Africa - site of the 2010 FIFA World Cup - for a two-week tour that will include a trio of friendly matches. The group is scheduled to depart Friday, Nov. 27 and will return stateside Tuesday, Dec. 8.

The squad will first take on the Orlando Pirates reserve squad on Monday, Nov. 30, then will take on a yet-to-be-determined opponent on Thursday, Dec. 3. The schedule of friendlies will then conclude with a match against the AJAX Cape Town reserves on Sunday, Dec. 6.


  1. Hey Ryan any idea where we can find the roster for the Gen A. team? I didn't see it in the article you linked. (Perhaps I just overlooked it)

    Any idea if Zayner is gonna be going on this trip?


  2. John, I'll try to find it today. If I come across it I'll post it up.

  3. I think it would be good for Zayner btw. I was very impressed with Zayner this season.

  4. Ya, I fully agree. He has done a fantastic job this season. I am no longer as concerned with the age of our two current, starting, outside backs because of the abilities Jed has shown this past year.
