"Gone Pablo Angel, There's Only Gone Pablo Angel"
So Big Al Hopkins dropped a tasty 'lil nugget over on Twitter a minute ago, saying that "classy JPA has known since MLS ASG in July he would not return to @RBNY. 4 MLS clubs tried & failed to trade for JPA." This was after JPA himself said earlier today that he knows "for a fact" that he won't be back in NY next season. So basically start planning your candle light vigils and tribute tifo now to avoid the post-playoff rush.
Props to JPA for doing such a nice job on keeping his lips sealed and his game tight. Someone more ghetto than him (me?) could have just wilded the hell out and acted way ig'nant for the last 3-4 months. But the big question is who else was interested? Any guesses?
[UPDATE: Hopkins named names on Extra Time Radio today: D.C., Seattle, LA and (shockingly) Colorado where the teams who made offers.]
