A Tough Start to the Season

The Spartans are unlikely to perform a repeat of a BSL championship. That is the sentiment from supporters after a disastrous start to the season on the personnel side.

First, shortly after naming Jermaine Jones as its third DP, it was announced that Jones was having surgery to repair a sports hernia and would be out for the first several weeks of the season.

Next, Cubo Torres went on a scoring tear, likely extending his stay in Mexico before rejoining the team, which could have been as early as May but now may be later.

Peguy Luyindula has not dressed since the preseason and it is now thought that he might be contemplating retirement.

After that, it was announced that Deshorn Brown, a high draft pick, would be sold.

And to add insult to injury, it was announced today that Clint Dempsey suffered a hamstring strain while training for USMNT duty and will likely be out for a few weeks.

It will certainly be a trying time for the Spartans in 2015.

2015 Kit Announced

Today, the Spartans announced their 2015 kit, a replica jersey of Cameroon's sleeveless 2002 world cup kit, which was later banned by FIFA.

When asked by a fan group why the kit couldn't be Spartans traditional blue or even include the teams logo on it, the Chairman shrugged and walked away. It is thought that the Chairman's deep distrust of FIFA tempted him to adopt the jersey as an anti-FIFA demonstration, with hopes that they will come knocking so he can ignore them too.

San Zusi cheered the jersey choice, and is looking forward to airing it out on the field.
