12/10/09: Crew News Update

Crew academies doing work!

** Now for your throw up moment of the day, one Chicago Fire blog states that the Fire may be considering to offer something for GBS. Just no, no, no, no, no. They already ruined one Crew legend, so the Fire should really keep their grubby hands off of another. If GBS isn't with Columbus in 2010, he should be with Gimnasia, period:
A MLS star who the Fire could reach out to is Guillermo Barros Schelotto, currently of the Columbus Crew. The Crew recently asked the 36-year-old Schelotto, whose contract expires at the end of the year, to take a big pay cut and he expressed his unhappiness with the idea.

However, under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, regardless of whether the 2008 league MVP resigns with Columbus the Crew will still hold his MLS rights for 2010. Thus, should the Fire wish to acquire the Argentine forward, they will have to trade for him.

"Columbus still has his rights so I don't want to be saying anything too much," Klopas said. "I can only tell you that the guy's an experienced and good player. He's done very well in this league and for the Crew. But we don't have his rights so I'll just leave it at that."

**Between Tuesday and Wednesday next week there will be developments in regard to GBS according to Diario Hoy.

** Columbus Crew Soccer Academies are succeeding at a high level. CSA compiled a combined record of 5-1-0 over the competition, with the 15/16s earning a 2-1-0 record and the 17/18s going unbeaten with a 3-0-0 mark.
