    Just dug up some more info: http://www.centerlinesoccer.com/http:/www.centerlinesoccer.com/huckerby-to-go-window-shopping-in-san-jose/

    Apparently, Yallop is not optimistic of signing Huckerby and added that TFC "still hold all the cards".

    Two days ago, man...Huckerby has always envisioned MLS as California lifestyle first, football challenge second...read his interviews...

    This is two days old, that's ancient compared what The Score is saying. I really hope we didn't lose Huckerby to SJ...arrrghh

    Well, Kristian Jack usually has pretty good insight into these matters. I would believe what he says and in the article its says Huckerby will make a decision on Friday.

    Can't say that I'm not disappointed in having to watch Cunny for a few more weeks. Also, I'm not that excited about Dickov.

    We're making bandaid moves to our roster. We need guys to build the core of the team and signing 32+ year olds won't help in that category. I'd like find some talent at 30 years old at the very least. If we got both those strikers, Dichio could have come in when we had a lead. He is one of the best defensive forwards in the league by far.

    jloome is going to lose it

    If we lost Hucks barring any contractual crap you could guess why.

    True, but the point is that at the very least, SJ has to deal with us if they want to sign Huckerby because we placed our discovery claim on him first. It's consolation if he doesn't come I guess.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but my understanding with discovery claims is the team either has to sign the player or move out of the way. So we don't necessarily get anything for him. Unless Mo signs him and then trades him.

    I guess time for Lombardo just ran out, the talent level of this team has greatly improved this season and he just did not step up his game. He is many ways was the type of player we needed last year but not anymore.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    hoping more allocation money and a international spot for Huckerby.

    I would of been happy if we got Huckerby and Dickov, but just Dickov.......don't like that.

    I wonder if SJ signed him at a DP? It could be a case of more money. I mean a guy coming from England wouldn't care which is the more important club. He also has some serious injuries and would probably last 5 games with TFC. Too bad SJ is more attractive than TFC these days......worrisome as well

    Mo better have a better solution to our striker dilema than Dickov. What's even more aggrivating is Ali Gerba will probably sign with SJ too......

    I think it's beacuse of the grass, Mo said he had a concern with the FieldTurf..that could've been the deciding factor. How could he choose SJ over T.O for any other reason? Fcuk...that's depressing.

    Lombardo released....I'm kinda pissed about this one.
    I hope Huckerby looks beyond palm trees and beaches, and sees that soccer is alive in TO. I wouldn't be happy with Dickov all by himself.

    I dunno.... I want the guy here, big time, but if he doesn't want to play in Canada then I certainly don't want him to either. But I doubt that's the case; it may just be the size of the offer or he might just be dead set on California.

    I think after he plays a couple of times in front of the sedate soccer moms of San Jose, he'll regret it, but there ya go. And maybe Kristian's wrong, so let's wait and see.

    I guarantee one thing: we'll score more goals with Dickov on the pitch, whether he's the one who scores them or not. He's tenacious like a pitbull.
