A couple quick notes tonight, Philly Game Eve.
For those of you who thought the madness of the Backe/Soler regime would come to an end with the team's dismal performance, you'd be wrong. Erik Soler told the Times' Goal blog that
"Hans is the head coach next season, regardless ... I met with our owner three weeks ago to discuss the next two seasons. Red Bull is showing a lot of faith, of course they want to win all the time.”
There's another bit in there, for those still hung up on the DeRosario experiment about how "he didn't work out" and "didn't score."
Expect Dane Richards up front tomorrow night with Luke Rodgers, as MLSsoccer.com reports that was the look Backe went with at practice yesterday. Richards seems positive about the move and seems to think his and Rodgers' combined speed will create problems for the Union's backline.
