Flurry of news roundup

Well, well, well.  Twitter has been busy today, with lots of moves (and non-moves) announced.

  • Andy Najar signs a multi-year deal: Obviously great news for the club, keeping Najar around for at least a couple of years.  However, I have a nagging feeling that once this contract is up, he will move overseas somewhere.
  • Pat Onstad joins DC United as goalkeeping coach: Another move that I like.  I don’t know it if was Mark Simpson’s fault, but a change was needed at the goalkeeping coach position after Troy Perkins’ miserable year.  I can’t think of anyone better to mentor Bill Hamid than one of the best goalies in MLS history.  Also, more evidence of Olsen putting his stamp on the team.
  • No loan for Donovan this winter: He deserves a break.  And after the Algeria goal, I don’t really care what he does (not that he listens to me).  He wants to go to USL-Pro, sure; he wants to become the next Global Icon by playing in China, go right ahead; he wants to make more water fountain ads, do it.
