The Outsider



Remember when you were young? Shone like the sun.



It seems nowadays the confidence is waning and jibes are coming from all angles:

Lately he either doesn't want to or can't turn it up a gear like the good old days:



There are still some big games left to rescue his reputation. However, if he fails to deliver he will remain on

Union Whites




"J'aime du chemise blanc!"

The Union rolled out a "surprise" all white kit for the 2011 home opener....except a couple of local blogs got the scoop on 'em a while ago. After being teased by the training kit fans thought they might get something new but 3/19/11 in Houston...


...no matter. The only bummer is that the new Union strip is pretty much a hand-me-down design from last year's L.A. Galaxy




GO UNION!!!

Red, White and Blow Chunks




from U.S. Soccer: "Designed by Nike, the creation of the red national team kit was driven by consumer demand and completes a trio of jerseys, each representing one of the three colors of the U.S. flag – red, white and blue. With the same design as the white home kit and the blue away kit, the red version includes a blue sash and blue trim."


"In a campaign called '#RedAllOver' U.S. Soccer and Nike provided fans with the opportunity to write a new motto that will be featured on the U.S. Men’s National Team’s new red uniform. Fans had five days to submit their motto on Twitter. One motto will be chosen and embroidered on the sleeve of the players’ uniforms they will wear against Argentina tonight 3/26/11."


Dempsey seems excited. This shirt is not a new design and does not deserve any special roll-out. It's tired. It's a gimmick shirt. The "sass" should have white trim. All in all, a disappointment.

The new old look has fans confused - Why are we raiding the old dusty kit lockers? Fans these days want to know they are part of the progress of man!
