D.C. United Chasing Fred

According to Steven Goff of the Washington Post, D.C. United are quietly chasing after Helbert Frederico Carreiro da Silva, better known as Fred. A Brazilian, Fred currently plays for current champion Melbourne Victory of Australia's A-League. He's 27 and usually plays attacking midfielder or striker. Fred tallied four goals and nine assists in 20 appearances in the 2006-07 season for Melbourne. In the '07 A-League Grand Final, he recorded four assists in Melbourne's 6-0 victory over Adelaide United.

Could he be another steal like Luciano Emilio appears to be? The rest of the league is definitely going to have to step it up in terms of worldwide scouting, as D.C. United is far beyond any other MLS team in that respect.

Any team in the MLS can beat us?? Err... how far did you go in the previous World Cup?? How many players do you have playing professionally overseas compared to us? Duhh...

TJ said...

I personally like the A-League a lot. I think it is similar to MLS. Both leagues are in countries where soccer is becoming more and more popular every day. The talent levels in both countries have already been proven and I personally can't wait until Australia is host for a World Cup sometime in the future.

Way to go TJ to hopefully diffuse a surprisingly volatile discussion. I think you're right - the two leagues are very similar. I like A-League too - was in Sydney last July and the camps were just opening, there was a fair amount of stir over the start of the season. While not a "great" league - MLS has been around for over 10 years (compared to A-League's 2) and is just starting to come into its own. And DC United is a very good club - decent talent, good supporters - c'mon, don't be haters. I'm very excited about the possibility of signing Fred!

BTW, I agree with the last "anonymous" poster that the Aussies have some great talent in the top European leagues...and the current pool of (ahem!) Socceroos is as good if not better than the Yanks. But c'mon, don't ask us how far we got in the last WC. We got to the Quarters in '02. How far did the Socceroos get in World Cups '90, '94, '98, and '02? Oh yeah - that's right, didn't qualify.

What venom flows from Australia way...... I don't know much about the A-league, but what information is available puts it as a somewhat weaker version of MLS. Dwight Yorke as its "star", anyone? But then many of the best aussie players are overseas, and it is probably hard to attract top Latin or Asian talent given the modest salaries of the A-league, so given those constraints it does a reasonable job.
It is a shame Australia is so far away, for all that venom could be put to good use in developing a healthily nasty Yankee-Soccerroo football rivalry. Damn.

Can't wait to see how Australia's tour in September vs Mexico and USA go. I think us Aussies will continue to suprise, and do us proud. Yeah, I'm a Melbourne member and do not want to lose Fred, but it may be too hard to keep him with our current salary cap vs the MLS. it's US$1.9M right? I hope the victory can keep him here. Besides the deal isnt done until it's official really. Can't say i've seen any MLS, but this last A League season has been brilliant. Can't wait till next year. You guys should check it out.

Greetings from Melbourne.
What can we tell DC United about Fred? Well, he's not as big as you'll be expecting. And he's not as fast as you'll be expecting. Nor can he speak English. He's not a particularly good player -- as you all know, compared to the MLS, the A-League is rubbish so being a just-okay player here is hardly a recommendation.
Is the MLS serious about going forward? If so, how can there be room for substandard, tangle-footed and tactically naive midgets like Fred on your rosters? If I were a DC United fan I'd be on the phone and firing off emails to the MLS and DC administration calling for negotiations with this disloyal and deeply unpopular money-grabber be called off, as well as alerting the FBI and the Immigration Dept to his terrorist-like appearance. If he does show up in the US don't let him out of the airport -- just slap a sticker on his oversized forehead, just above his dull, uncomprehending eyes, that says "property of Victory FC, Swan St, Melbourne, Australia" and we'll make sure the stupid little bugger never troubles you again.

Its tough, very tough. Yea, last blogger, FRED is good, but your right, not that good. For my fellow Melbournians, it will be a loss, but fear not, you find people like FRED on the streets in Brazil. Hopefully, his replacement is better! For DC United, apologies if we seem bitter, but we are. I am anyway. Dont forget, money wont always breed you world class players. Keep in mind before the a_league cops anymore shit, even though we are two years old, our best players are Australians. While we'd love to see em, we don't need Beckam, for instance, just for the name. Pretty typcial of US to offer a single man an amount of moeny that could rid africa of starvation. an amount that could not be spent by Dave himself, his wife, kids and ther kids for that amtter. And yea, you needed the 94 world cup to get into it, and with the amount of filthy money going through the states, its no surprise that you got it. So yea, with your bull shit international ranking, your money that will never make 'soccer' (Fotoball please)as big as gridion (also a whimps sport - get rid of the padding) or baseball, keep in mind that we have been around for only two years and already, you are poaching our recruits. Doesn't say much for your '10 year old' league. Give us another few years and well see. We also stand corrected to remind the majority of ignorant yanks, that our a-league is new, but our NSL has been around since the 70's. All in all, no hard feelings. Wel all get over it, im sure. Take care.

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of just dish out all at once staring at it as a form of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to reduce stress and decent think in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've eternally at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most charmed when I base the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Presentation Laser Outstrip Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com answerable to the Toys section. It's like a melodic belt, a spinning head, and a radiance divulge all rolled into one. Which is spectacular relaxation! The gyroscope pleasure outing object of round a minute. The laser explanation pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a measure corresponding exactly toy that my friends have also been most amused with.

My dogs are also pretty eccentric nearly the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They always follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser slight accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got used it, they've stopped barking but due save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused alongside it. Off it's meet to maintain pleasing toys throughout the blood so that you can pull out the diminutive on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count prepare viands or receive changed. The gyroscope is a particular such fool with with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a dainty exposition with red, downcast, and unripened colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that expert but good enough to treat any new roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look particular imperturbable, and measure macho with that dragon imprint.

The music light show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also utilized this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the pension elbow-room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser insight clarify produces a ideal effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a sort of romanticist atmosphere. She loved it, past the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my oversight shopping put in return all gifts and ideas in compensation romanticist occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser radiance make clear gyroscope can possibly be a great Christmas gift in behalf of the toddler or even the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a gracious reckoning to the established Christmas decorations. I can presume placing it near the Christmas tree and perchance spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business still again!
