The Magnificent One Strikes

Henry Shows World Class Ability in 6-2 Romp Over Quest

He's the talisman, the king, and the magnificent one all at the same time. In week 4 of the 2012 BSL campaign, Thierry Henry left no doubt that he is rightfully considered 'world class.' It was his assist that truly showcased that ability. A back flick that 99% of players in the world couldn't get right if they tried seemed effortless to Henry. Oh by the way, he netted a hat trick as well. His four points paced the Alamo City Battle as they reeled off their third win of the season to remain unbeaten in the early going. With Gateway United drawing on the day, week 5 is an early season 'must win' that sets the Bigtime Soccer League apart from the rest. "It's huge. Two undefeated clubs that are rolling right now. Both are in form and both are looking to take the early stranglehold on the table. It's as important of a game as there is, week 5 be damned. These are the matches that set clubs above others. Simply put, we need to keep rolling."

That's the goal for Alamo City and that's the reasoning behind their first player transaction of the season. While the Battle had high hopes for Josue Martinez, the early season issues with Philadelphia have kept Alamo City from being able to properly gauge the youngster's ability. He hasn't even had a chance to make an impact yet. Not able to wait around as in years past, the Battle moved on and added a different youngster to the roster. Nick DeLeon has been a sweet surprise for DCU and Alamo City hopes to cash in on that joyride as well. He'll be ready for selection in week 5 should Alamo City management deem him ready to start.


  1. Juan Agudelo or Colin Clark for Kelyn Rowe?

  2. Colin Clark will be out with the suspension and Agudelo is hurt/sub.

    Rowe is a starter. I'm going to pass.
