Battle Seeking 2nd Round Picks

With negotiations hitting a wall with the other clubs in terms of player movement, the Alamo City Battle have sent word to the BSL Office that they are seeking 2nd Round Draft Picks.  This is both in line with their off season plan, as well as an attempt to kick start negotiations with clubs again.

"Obviously Thierry Henry was going to be in high demand.  It seems though, that nobody is willing to either accept the price to acquire him or admit what his true price is.  There is only one individual that accounted for more total points than Henry last year and he's already locked up with a DP slot by Union SC.  We've got the highest scoring proven product available but he's going to demand a premium price because he's the premium player out there.  We'll deal him if someone comes through with an offer that's acceptable.  Until then we'll continue to shop around and we'll continue to release news about what we're looking for.  On that note, players we're interested in include ...

Federico Higuain
Landon Donovan
Chris Rolfe
Robbie Keane
Will Bruin
Sherjill McDonald
Omar Cummings
Brad Davis

... and now we've put it out there."

All Players Available

- San Antonio

Per the official announcement at a press conference earlier today, the Alamo City Soccer Club has made available all of the players on their roster.  "Yes, everyone is available," said team management.  "Obviously there are names that carry a much more considerable price tag than others but we are opening the doors to ALL negotiations" they went on to say.

While the strong finish to the season and push to the Major's Cup win helped stay some of the ill feelings that had been building in San Antonio, things still haven't fully set right in the Alamo City.  There were several closed door meetings between players, management, and both the players and management together.  The club has decided that ALL options are the best option and will be willing to work with any club to make something work.
