Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's for 1/31...

Crew SC's Brazilian consultant hanging out at Mapfre in his twitter pic

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's: Are the top Crew contemplations of the day. If you're new to the Crew... Video example of what is a Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk .

Former Crew players Jason Garey and William Hesmer rep North Carolina bid.

3 out of 12 teams to apply for MLS expansion today are Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Detroit.

Hold up a sec... 12 American cities have bidded to pay $150 million for a soccer team? Are you sure?

I'm hopeful in an away fan way at least two neighbor clubs get it. Link.

I prefer Indy and Cincinnati. Because unless Detroit is somehow Detroit City FC in some way  then they rotate from the top to the bottom of that list for me. Story here.

As not ideal if MLS ruins a very cool atmosphere in North America, pisses off legit soccer fans, and replaces it with another Los Angeles FC or Atlanta United. A bit plastic.

I, as anyone, would like some closer rivals regardless though. Think Cincinnati may get a bit intense since they are already convinced of their infinite magic.

But, in another Crew regard, this is a bit interesting.

Apparently the Crew have someone in Brazil 24/7...

One Ricardo Moreira. Who showed up on an ESPN Brazil, soccer show today talking about the Columbus Crew and their future work in Brazil.

And his role in Brazil as a full time consultant for them.
More in depth comments he made about his role with Columbus are here.

And here is Ricardo on twitter with a very Crew-like picture.. If you think he's just a random guy that showed up on a ESPN Brazil, TV show and made it up. 😊

Overall, think the Crew can't live down there almost signing of Zeca in 2015, link.

Looking to sign another Zeca for real this time..

Hopefully it's worth it in some way. Got to like the effort though. No?

Upcoming schedule

I, along with others, were incorrect that the Crew were facing off against Moreira's former club Audax.

The upcoming schedule of note is..

Thursday, February 2nd. Ghana, Afful vs. Cameroon at 2 PM in the AFCON Semifinal

Friday, February 3. Crew SC vs. Gremio Osasco
Monday, February 6. Crew SC vs. Ituano
I wonder how someone could screw that up?

               Gremio Osasco                                         and Gremio Osasco Audax
