So Nowak is a Psychopath

+

In case you haven't heard, former Philadelphia Union coach Pitor Nowak sued the team for wrongful termination and unpaid severance money. Jonathan Tannenwald at Philly.com did some crack reporting and came up with the letter outlining why Nowak was fired. It's excerpted in the linked post at Business Insider. Suffice it to say, it's pretty damming. You think Sebastien Le Toux is happy to be on the other side of the turnpike, or what?

Because MSG's video embedding doesn't work... Apparently, the team warranted a brief mention from the only radio show in New York where the hosts can pronounce their own names. Alas, there's no video. In lieu of actual soccer talk, here's a video of their interview with Bert Blyleven, who, for the non-baseball fans, had a ridiculous, ridiculous curveball back in the day.

NYT article on Henry - obviously not too challenging but an interesting look at his life in NYC, and some insight into his view of his tenure in MLS several years ago Henry was in a commercial for some kind of razor - alongside Eldrick Woods and Roger Federer. I saw the spot a few times and then noticed that they replaced Henry with Derek Jeter. It's interesting to contrast the two, occupying the same city, one relatively anonymous, the other instantly recognizable.

A Sampling of Philly Butthurt

You could see it a mile away. As soon as the Red Bulls announced their trade for Sebastien Le Toux, you knew Union fans would be upset. Thanks to Steve Davis over at Pro Soccer Talk, we have a bit of a sampling of just how upset they are down there in Philly. Enjoy.

Red Bulls Set To Pick Up Gaudette From LA

+

If Brian Lewis' Twitter is to be believed, the Red Bulls are set to announce that they've acquired Bill Gaudette from the LA Galaxy for a draft pick. The 30-year-old Gaudette adds the goalkeeper depth the Red Bulls lack while bringing a veteran presence to the position the team lacked early on. It remains to be seen what this means for Jeremy Vuolo. UPDATE: The pick is a "natural" second round 2014 supplemental draft pick, according to the team's official release.
