Tuesday news & notes

  • 041608_ESPN_Wells_P.jpgThe team trained behind closed doors for the majority of practice this morning and early afternoon. The team worked on set pieces and also did some finishing before opening to the media. You can see a few photos from today right here
  • Following training, every player shot their ESPN introduction for tomorrow night's game against the Crew. Zach Wells has already developed a reputation, as the ESPN producers remembered him needing eight takes last year while with Houston. It only took three this time around. 
  • Though Ben Olsen won't be playing tomorrow, he did his intro and was then asked a question for tomorrow's broadcast entitled "What's in Frankie Hejduk's book bag." Pretty sure he nailed the contents. Tune in to ESPN2 tomorrow night at 8 p.m. (ET) to hear his answer. 
  • Finally, be sure to check out Steve Goff's live chat that took place this afternoon. He covers numerous questions about United and other soccer topics.
