Question of the Day
“That’s Blanco’s issue; we just want to win games,” Soehn said.
New goalie - Liberian goalie Louis Crayton could make his debut in goal for United against Chicago, replacing starting keeper Zach Wells.
Crayton officially signed with the club on Friday.
Wells’ season has been plagued with errors, and he was blamed for the second goal in Sunday’s 4-1 loss at the Red Bulls, when he came off his line and missed a cross.
Soehn would not comment on Crayton’s status on Friday, and the goalie was not made available to the media.
Crayton, 30, has spent the last decade playing in Switzerland for numerous clubs, most recently FC Basel. The 5-foot-11 keeper has played 35 times for the Liberian national team.
McBride back in USA - Forward Brian McBride, fresh from playing for the U.S. Olympic team, could play his first game for Chicago on Saturday in his return to Major League Soccer. The 36-year-old, who played eight years with the Columbus Crew, has spent the last five seasons with English club Fulham.
