News and Notes 10/26/2006

Maradona to coach Honduras?
It seems that CONCACAF might have another high profile coach swaggering into the region. Argentine Diva, Diego Maradona has been linked with becoming the head coach of the Honduras national team. God help all of CONCACAF if this happens. Does Maradona still have his TV show, "Night of the 10?" Will he be able to keep both jobs?

Costs keep rising: 2010 now costs $1.9 Billion
It seems that the earlier reports of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, scheduled to be held in South Africa, were to be held at a cost of $1.5 Billion were way off. Now organizers are claiming that the tournament will cost $1.9 Billion. The extra money might go towards the hiring of an additional 10,000 police officers, to increase security in the crime challenged nation. 1 Billion dollars to replace an entire fleet of aging taxis? I say that the cost will rise to $2.3 Billion by January 2007.

Gomez getting some good press.
DC United midfielder, Christian Gomez is getting a ton of wonderful press these days, as he is in line for the 2006 Honda MLS MVP award. Now if he could only dance, then he would be the whole package. Gomez and the rest of DC United take on Red Bull New York this Sunday at RFK Stadium in the return leg of their home/away series in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. I will be there, preview coming in tomorrow.

Toluca in Sudamericana Hole
Mexican club, Toluca, have put themselves in a 3-1 hole in their first leg of their Copa Sudamericana Quarter-Final series against Argentine club, San Lorenzo. Toluca, one of the two remaining CONCACAF clubs in the Copa Sudamericana, will host San Lorenzo in the return leg on November 1st.
