Erpen on All Star team
Facundo Erpen will be replace Eddie Pope on the All-Star team (HT: My Soccer Blog). Is it me, or are we essentially playing both Chelsea and Real Madrid in the span of a week? Granted, we're letting a few scrubs join the United lineup for the Chelsea game. Our regulars aren't getting much rest during this All-Star break, which could give other teams an advantage when the regular season resumes.
Erpen has been a solid addition to the backline, although certainly prone to occasional mental lapses and acrobatics. Let's hope for MLS's sake he doesn't decide to pass the ball to <INSERT NAME OF LATEST CHELSEA SIGNING HERE> for a 1-on-1 breakaway. Maybe Novak should have picked someone not from his own team to replace Eddie. Spread some love around. There's this Terry Cooke fellow I keep hearing about.
