    What can I say am from England and football is our game and two hear a black writer spouting the black mantra of take over just makes me wanna puke. It's like everthing else in this PC world that seems to say that until blacks have taking over with their so called supreme athletic ability??????!! then be it sport or music then they can't be endorsed as a proper endevor. well kiss my sweet white booty football is the beautiful game made by kings for kings, and if the MLS gets swamped by blacks like the NBA etc use still won't get anywhere near winning a world cup! come on England u good old boys

    Hi Allen. Do you feel any progress is being made in attracting more African-American athletes to the beautiful game? Are there more players like Sheanon Williams coming up through the ranks? I believe athletic players like DaMarcus Beasley, Eddie Johnson, Oguchi Onyewu and Cory Gibbs have made the US team so much more dynamic and competitive.

    This is a great, great question. The answer is yes, there are far more African-Americans in the game. The conversation I have from time to time when I see Eddie Pope, and he's such a forerunner with both club and country, and now that Eddie Johnson has come on board and Freddy Adu is making strides. Gooch is prototype, physical centre-back that would be coveted in all four corners of the world. And then look at last year's crop with Scott Sealy and Ugo Ihemelu playing sigificant minutes in this league. As an over-30 player, I'm excited that there are black kids playing the game younger and younger and being exposed to a high level at a young age. I think these guys, who are probably too young to know it, are very much pioneers. When you think about what Eddie Johnson represents, a true inner-city story if you will, and I always see this, and when a kid opens a magazine and sees Eddie Johnson or Freddy Adu and sees a huge, tricked-out Bentley on rims and he knows that this guy plays for MLS or the national team, it will be a whole new consciousness and we're getting to that point.

    eddie johnson is a joke. he's choked so much, you'd think he'd lose his gag reflex. and freddy much-adu-about-nothing has yet to accomplish anything. granted the kid is talented, but he has yet to make anything near the kind of splash that the media, and other black-loving prognosticators, have predicted.

    cory gibbs has been injured so much, that i haven't seen enough of his game to comment. but he's as fragile as they come, and not nearly as gifted as oft-injured John O'Brien whom Landon Donovan says is the most gifted player in the country...when he's healthy.

    onyewu and beasly are both very good players, but to say they herald a movement toward blackness is waaaaay off base. almost all the young players who are doing great things in the U.S. are white. that's why there has been so much of an uproar about the lack of diversity on the various U.S. national teams. otherwise, there would be more media coverage of the beautiful game, because God knows, we love watching black people run around on TV. (please note the heavy sarcasm in the last sentence.) [​IMG]

    one more thing cw77, what is the latest on Michael Owen's and Wayne Rooney's injury status? those guys are both incredibly gifted and fast, so hopefully they'll be ready for the World Cup.

    I've never seen Adu play but i suspect from what i,ve heard he's overated.If he is the phenom that people make him out to be then one of the big European giants would have come in for him with huge money that would have been impossible for his current club to turn down.The difference between MlS and the big European leagues is vast.Its one of the reasons why the US national coaches encourage their players if they get the chance like Donovan and Beasley to leave the US and ply their trade in Europe where they pick up so much more playing alongside and against the world's best players on a regular basis which only benefits and makes the US team stronger when these players are picked to represent their nation in an international competition like the world cup.

    Clint Dempsey is white, although he's a bit of a gangsta wannabe, pseudo black dude.

    Claudio Reyna and Pablo Mastroeni are both caucasians, as well. i think they are a mix of lily white with a little Italian or Argentinian thrown in, if i remember correctly. as for Brian Ching...his surname is asian, but he's awfully round-eyed and creamy skinned...so you make the call. [​IMG]

    furthermore, goalkeeper tim howard is black. and of late he has been playing very poorly, so probably he will be the third keeper.

    also, OC, Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen play for England's national team. not the U.S. and they are two of the elite players in the world. of our roster, the only guy who could considered to possibly be on that list would be Landon Donovan.

    it's a very strange line-up...especially the selection of Brian Ching at forward. eddie johnson was a lock because of his superior blackness, despite the fact that he sucks donkey balls. [​IMG] however, there were numerous young forwards who have severely outplayed Ching this year in the selection process... especially Taylor Twellman. wow! that is a huge surprise!

    Iron, you are right to a certain extent about the development of players. typically, playing against better competition makes you better. but playing makes you better than sitting on the bench, so Donovan has been playing in MLS rather than stagnating on the sidelines picking splinters out of his butt somewhere in Europe. which is what he was doing before he blew up a few years ago. other guys who have blossomed because of game action in MLS rather than being extra assistant coaches on the sidelines are guys like Wolff, Olsen, and Dempsey.

    as for adu...he is terribly over-rated. he is a talented young man, but not the super-extraodrinray-all universe-savior of American soccer that the black-glory promoters would have him be. the media so desperately wants a black face for U.S. soccer that they, in typical fashion, over-promoted the first gifted black player available. and he is gifted. he's just not the soccer equivalent combination of kobe-lebron-dwyane-amare that they would have everyone believe.

    yahh by defintion they are white. Southern European. I guess they do not have to be blond haired and blue eyed to put a dent in the caste system. We are just here to advocate aginst steriotypes, racism, and discrimination. Especially in reguards to football. If some white soccer players can show good athletic talent then maybe they will give white RB's CB's and WR's in the NFL and in college a chance.

    OC, white guys have to stick together! even if we're not all nordic-looking, we're all one big family of screwed-over athletes. if we only rooted for Jeremy Shockey look-alikes, we'd be in big trouble! [​IMG]

    Right sorry jimmy for the late reply not been on the net for a week, Micheal Owen will make the world cup he has a long history of picking up injuries world cup year but making for the finals. However with rooney I don't think there's much chance but our press has been whippping itself up in2 a frenzy saying he will make it. Englands best hopes are with playing Steven Gerrard in a more advanced midfield role. In this position he is devasting. Did any of use see my team liverpool win possible the greatest FA cup final in the history of the competion. Wonderful 2-0 down back to 2-2 then 3-2 down then back to 3-3 with Gearrard wonder goal, then extra time then we won on pens marvellous.
