Preseason Notes: League-Wide

For the record, I'm hoping to make this a regular feature till the season starts. And, by the way, I'd love it if people who run other fan sites - or if fans of any teams - stop by to add news on what they're guys are up to. That'd be swell by me, as would corrections to what I've got here. I'll be going team-by-team on a catch-as-catch-can basis.

So, let's get to it.

Houston Dynamo
The Houston Chronicle team reports that forward Brian Ching is still taking it easy on his way back to full fitness; the same article mentions that midfielder Brian Mullan has an ankle issue.

Real Salt Lake
While RSL players, with one eye on their stadium situation, weigh the wisdom of renting over buying, word crept out regarding how they plan to line up this season (LINK):

"Ellinger plans to play [newly-signed player, Chris] Lancos at right back if he goes with a four-man defense but says he can play wide in a five-man midfield. Carey Talley will anchor the midfield, Adu will be given the chance to run the attack, and Mehdi Ballouchy has first call on the left side. 'Right now, you know Carey's going to be in the middle and Freddy's going to be in the middle and the other two spots are open,' says Ellinger. 'We'll try things in preseason and hopefully we can figure it out.'"

That sounds delectable on paper. Can't wait to see it live.
