    He's not a DP either. As for the other Juninho in the league, apparently Sau Paulo want him back for their upcoming season. But that was the case after the 2011 season, and he went there and signed a new long term deal, and after a couple of games they decided to loan him out to LA again. So it's possible, and LA better hope it happens, that he ends up in MLS again next year.

    Makes me sad that teams have players that are not DPs, yet they are twice as good as any of our DPs.

    Rumor is that Kevin Harbottle is headed to the Colorado Rapids. He was frozen out of Universidad Catolica for the Apertura if my memory serves me well. He's a very promising striker.

    We won the Gale Agbossoumonde lottery. No clue about this guy, from what I've read apparently he is a bright prospect but has been terribly inconsistent, even in the NASL.

    FC Dallas have signed Peruvian national team goalkeeper Raúl Fernández, the club announced on Thursday. Per team and league policy the terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

    “Raúl Fernández is a very athletic goalkeeper who has gained a lot of experience playing internationally with Peru,” FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman said in a statement. “He has a strong command of the box and will compete for the starting position with FC Dallas. He is an extremely motivated individual. I expect he will embrace this opportunity.”

    Fernández, 27, got his start in the youth system of Universitario de Deportes of the Peruvian first division. He made his professional debut with the club in a 1-1 draw with Union Huaral on July 31, 2005. Fernández went go on to play in 143 matches for Universitario between his debut and 2010. Universitario are regarded as the top club in Peru.

    He was signed by OGC Nice of the French first division in December of 2010. The 6-foot-1 goalkeeper appeared in two matches for the four-time French Ligue 1 champions since his debut on Aug. 31, 2011. Fernández backstopped Nice in a 2-1 victory over Toulouse in the third round of Coupe de la Ligue.

    A native of Lima, Peru, Fernández has earned 21 international caps with the Peruvian national team since March 26, 2008.

    So ridiculous. I mean yeah, he needs to get out of Chivas, but he won't play at Celtic, and even if he did it would t be good for his development.

    Güey (vulgar)
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search

    Güey (usually misspelled as guey, wey or we; pronounced like the English word 'way') is a word in Mexican Spanish which is commonly used to refer to any person without using his name and applies equally to males and females (though it is more often applied to males). It is used in Mexican Spanish in roughly the same way "dude" is used in modern American English.[1] It is derived from the term buey, which refers to a castrated bull (an ox), used for meat, sacrifice, and/or labor (e.g. pulling plows and carts). Over time, the initial /b/ underwent a consonant mutation to a /g/, resulting in the modern güey. In Mexico this same word is used like an insult (can be a negative term like "fool" ), although, due to its extremely high frequency of use in a multitude of contexts, it has lost much of its offensive character, becoming a colloquialism.[2]

    According to the Academia Mexicana de la Lengua (Mexican Academy of Language), güey is a deformation of "buey" (from Lat. bos, bovis). However, a common trend in Mexican Spanish is for simple words to become very complex terms that change meaning depending on context. Güey may mean stupid, friend, enemy, asshole, deranged, courageous, and a host of terms that are inconsistent most of the time. It can be used as derogatory or superlative.

    The Real Academia Española (Royal Spanish Academy) recognizes the term "buey" as a Mexican Spanish adjective to describe a fool or someone who has tripped. When used as an insult, in the uneducated lexicon, "buey" is a bull's-linguistic deviation (from Lat. bos, bovis).[3]
    Use

    It is common to use both meanings of the term interchangeably:

    To denote stupidity or ignorance, in expressions like "¡Qué güey soy, se me olvidó el celular!" (I'm such an idiot, I forgot my (cell) phone!) Or "¡No seas güey!'" (Don't be an idiot!).
    Cut the word to say "güe"/"we". Like "¡No güe! ¡Estoy en el teléfono!" (No dude/asshole! I'm on the phone!).
    To refer to the same person you are talking about like "No güey, no pude ir." (No dude, I couldn't go).
    To refer to a person whose name is unknown like "¿Qué no es tu hermano aquél güey de camisa roja?" (Isn't the dude with the red shirt your brother?)

    In the first case, it is used like the English profanity, "asshole". In the last two cases, it is used like the American slang term, "dude".

    Although the word is not always offensive nor an insult between friends, its usage is generally considered uneducated. Thus its usage is limited mostly to friends and trusted acquaintances or among young people. It is considered in poor taste for a teenager or a child to refer to an adult as (a) "güey," although among adults it is usually used in a common way. The word is used in any social class, being equally accepted and used in all. It also is used in television and radio in popular entertainment, but not in more formal or objective programs, like in the news.

    /copypasta

    You know, never thought about how complicated it would be to explain the concept of "guey" to someone.

    I like the bolded part. The same holds true for words like, "cabron" and "perro"

    Cabron is literally a billy goat but it can mean anything from someone who fucks their mother to some one who is fucking awesome.

    Perro is literally dog, and usually being called a dog would be an insult but it can also mean you're fucking awesome.

    Actually, they're sometimes used together I guess, just the other day my cousin exclaimed "eres un perro, cabron." when I fixed his laptop.

    Good stuff.

    TFC picks two Canadians for their first two picks. Payne sold out 1st overall to get the 4th overall and allocation money. We got the players we wanted in the first place so it all worked out.

    Luciano Emilio could do something as outrageous as scoring 20 goals in his first season. But Lampard would be unlikely to repeat that performance.
