In news from abroad, Fulham released longtime defender Carlos Bocanegra last week. Today, Brian McBride, the captain at Fulham, decided to return to the U.S. and to leave Fulham. Suddenly, Fulham has lost the services of 2 Americans in 5 days!
It is a very sad day for Fulham... perhaps they will find two more Americans to replace these two. If Fulham is unable to find more Americans, the U.S. economy is certainly going to feel the ramifications of these transactions, as these two Americans were making big money, and the money was coming mostly from foreigners. First gas prices rise, then this. It's going to be a long summer for the U.S. economy.
