Crew's Carroll headed to Philadelphia

MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Midfielder Brian Carroll, who won two MLS Cups titles (D.C. United 2004 and Columbus Crew 2008) and four Supporters’ Shields (D.C. United 2006, 2007 and Columbus Crew 2008, 2009), is headed from the Columbus Crew to the Philadelphia Union in exchange for a conditional second-round pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft and allocation money.
 
The 29-year old Carroll attended Wake Forest and began his professional career in D.C. United after he was picked in the second round of the 2003 SuperDraft. In 2007, he was traded to the Columbus Crew for Kei Kamara.

Carroll, whose miss in the shootout knocked the Crew out of the 2010 playoffs in its Eastern Conference semifinal series against eventual champion Colorado, made his eighth appearance for the USA in last week's 1-0 win at South Africa.

    I like that. Soccer America started to recognize winning the Supporters' Shields in the players' history. Journalists are as important as the fans in emphasizing this achievement. Now, If we can pressure USSF to take the second best team in the regular season to the CONCACAF champions league instead of the MLS Cup runner up. Although FC Dallas is a worthy team to represent the USA, this is a fairer way, I think.
