Update 1: Match starting now on FSC. Gooch in 18, but not starting.
We’re on full blown Gooch Watch over here at TSG.
And while we don’t wish injuries upon anyone other than Gio Dos Santos and the entire Mexican team (and maybe a few others–we’re kidding on all fronts here), we are “saddened” by the news from Goal.com that starting center defender Thiago Silva is out for what looks to be three games for A.C. Milan.
Before we call in Oguchi, he’s going to need to make his case, in practice, that he is a better selection than Kakha Kaladze who Milan looked to deal earlier in the year (mostly for financial reasons), but who also deputized for Silva on Saturday against Bologna.
We’re just one Nesta limp away from big guy getting himself some run.
On another note, both Jonathan Spector, for West Ham, and Michael Bradley, for Bo………Munchen!, played 120 minutes and 90 minutes, respectively today.
