Stalking DCU Alumni

Andrea Canales interviews Quaranta on his debut last weekend with his new club. The bit about Quaranta having some lingering resentment to "show DC what they missed on" is slightly divorced from reality. Tino had 5 years, injury plagued years for sure, to make his mark and just couldn't. It happens but you can't cast DC United as the villain, when they could have given up on him much earlier.

Our man in Blackburn, Ryan Nelsen (HT: Fantasy EPL) has signed a new four-year deal with the EPL side. Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp had made 3 bids for the defender and will keep trying to sign him away.

Finally, Bobby Convey and Reading will make start their Premier League campaign on Saturday. The game will be shown tape-delayed at 2:15PM ET on Fox Soccer Channel.
