A lot of player movement or at least rumors of player movement but I thought I would jot down what I have heard. Can decide for yourself what is true and what is not.
The Pattersons are apparently a hotly coveted duo as usual. Germany are desperate to keep them but supposedly ROI and France are both trying to lure them away. I give it about a 50% chance of them leaving.
On the same note I have also heard D-Pat may not play as he is in school??? Who knows...
Also while on Germany I have heard that France have inquired about Jordan Peto's interest in joining their side after playing for them in the RSA tournament. Seems as though there is some uncertainty from France on their goal keeping situation.
And speaking of goal keeping situations if any knows one call ROI.
Jamaica has perhaps been the busiest of all the teams signing Mike Collins, David Brown, Shaan Kapila, Jonah Gardikiotis and less importantly Dwayne Gareau. Should make their team a lot more composed.
Our usual discussion as to whether Northey will be playing this year or not is up in the air. i have heard both yes and no but am currently hearing more no. Could be a moot point anyway as Northey is more than replaced by Laos' pickup of Chico form Afghan.
Poland looks to be in a lot of trouble as they will most likely end up with "Tips" as their only goal scoring threat. It sounds as though Brett Levis will be missing and Jay Tomchuk has just had ankle surgery and is hoping to b back after week 1. That seems like an awfully quick recovery. Heal Fast Jay!
Poland have signed Chris Zoller though. I believe he is a defender so that solves a lot of their problems.
Finally Afghan have signed U of S's Bobbi Nicholat. Make of that what you will.
Correct me if i am wrong of join in if you have heard anything else. DOOM TOASTED!
