News and Notes

Sorry for the false alarm on the game stream last night. Turns out it was only available in the Seattle area. The Rapids lost 3-1, but the Rapids didn't give up a goal until 3rd string keeper Steward Ceus was subbed in, and the last two came after Gary Smith made wholesale changes to the lineup.

Meanwhile there's news on a couple of players. First it looks like the Caleb Folan deal is all but official. Hull City has agreed to release him for free and Folan has agreed to a deal on both ends. It will probably still be a few days or so until an official announcement as all the paperwork gets processed (lengthy when its an international transfer).

Colorado is also looking at Martin John, a 22 year-old left back currently on loan from Cardiff City to Newport County in the Championship. John crew up in Canada and attended the University of Buffalo, but was born in London. His only professional experience is 7 games in his current loan spell with Newport, so this would be competition for Anthony Wallace. If the Rapids make a deal he wouldn't be able to move until the summer transfer window.
