    Not too excited about Jones.. hope he can contribute but from what I've heard from Germany fans, he's more trouble than he's worth.

    I honestly could care less if he was a hot head. We need something like that on the squad as right now we're a bunch of :jimhusker:'s running around.

    I think he will be nothing but help to our squad. And who is the mexican guy switching? I don't know anything about him

    A midget who prefers to play offense instead of defense.

    Edgar Castillo, and

    meh, he plays left back which is a position of need, he is really good going forward just needs to work on his defense, probably a player for 2014 more than 2010

    I haven't really seen him play, but from what I have read, I think he could be pretty good for us because he is a straight up destroyer in the midfield, something we lack.

    Jones is a player. One of the best defensive midfielders playing in Germany. I saw Schalke play two or three times last season and he is an enforcer out there.

    Welcome. Glad to see somebody from the other team in Scotland to rival the Celtic fans here.

    I had no choice but to laugh at that. I feel like Spurs are close, but we're just not quite to the point where we can compete with the top 4 on a regular basis. This is a big week - we have Burnley. If we don't get a win a lot of the early season optimism is going to disappear.

    I assume this game will be on ESPN since Bunley is the SEC of the EPL.

    You guys were playing excellent at the beginning and then had a tough stretch facing Man U and Chelsea back to back (the 2 best teams currently). I am sure you will be ok. The Bassong injury could have been devastating but I thought I read that he was fine.

    For the guy who says he's more trouble than he's worth, I disagree. When Schalke plays Bayern, Jones is the guy who's responsible for Franck Ribery, and he shut down Ribery in both games last year. He is a true destroyer in the midfield, and he is much more technically skilled and has a better first touch than guys like Rico Clark, Michael Bradley, and (puke) Pablo Mastroeni. He'll be a top 3 player on our team IMO. He is a hot-head, yes, but he's more than worth it.

    First off welcome, glad you joined. I have to ask. How do you know so much and so into soccer?


    Since Youseeffer had to leave the mainboard here I believe we are the only board to have a girl on it now.

    quoted purely for accuracy, Jones is an instant starter for us and will be the anchor of our midfielder, i just hope he gets healthy soon and can at least play in most of the friendlies in between now and the World Cup

    Thanks! I think you're giving me too much credit, but hey I'll take it! I grew up playing soccer and have three older brothers, so I've always been around sports. Bayern for me is only below Clemson (football/basketball mainly) and the US Nats in terms of dedication. Outside of Clemson though really, the only sport I'd watch over soccer is college football (Big Ten/Big East/mid majors not included).

    I'm used to being the only girl though. I don't mind it, guys are usually more entertaining. Shame Youseeeffer left, I liked her. The only other girl I remember on the rivals board was that lyndsay girl...yeesh talk about crashing and burning...:in-n-out:
