Transfer Window Opens Today

So Erik Soler and Hans Backe, who always seem to want to make a splash, will have a month to do so starting today.

Possibly because how well the team is playing, there isn't a ton in the way of rumors, unless you believe that the Bulls are going to ink literally ever aging European star looking to cash one final paycheck, but the most high-profile one so far has been the rumor that Kaka has "a dream to live in the U.S. and play in MLS."

In more tangible efforts, the team is looking to sign Luke Rodgers again, though news on the status of his visa appeal is few and far between. This is probably a good thing for Rodgers, but is rather maddening for us.

If there's anything heartening to come out of that discussion, though, is that the Red Bulls extended Cory Hertzog's loan to the USL-Pro Wilmington Hammerheads.

From the New York Post's indispensable Brian Lewis...

"Corey and the club discussed the possibility of extending his loan to the end of the year and we both agreed that it was in his best interest to stay with Wilmington to play more competitive matches," said Red Bulls GM and Sporting Director Erik Soler. "We wish him luck in Wilmington and we look forward to having him back once their season is over."

If the team really was having a tough time filling in gaps up top, I have a hard time believing they wouldn't welcome Hertzog back, especially with the luck the team has been having with "bench" players this year. So maybe Soler and Backe know something we don't, though, that's the case most of the time isn't it?
