Gale Agbossoumonde is wanting to win trophies, lots of them, and believes the young, exciting talent he is joining at the Colorado Rapids will help him achieve that ambition.

That is some statement, considering where the Togo-born defender is coming from. The 22-year-old will arrive in Denver on Saturday, two days after the Rapids acquired him from Toronto FC, in a deal which involved three clubs and took Marvin Chávez to Sunday’s opponents, Chivas USA.

Following the 0-0 draw at San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday, here’s one to consider: How long before Jürgen Klinsmann casts his eye in the direction of Clint Irwin?

I’m not saying Irwin’s phone ought to be ringing this very minute. After all, Jürgen has the small matter of a World Cup roster on his mind. No, what I’m suggesting, is that once the Brazil dust has settled, and attention turns to the Gold Cup and 2018 World Cup cycle, then Irwin must surely be in the frame.

There was some chatter in the Rapids' press box on Saturday about whether Vicente Sánchez's game winning goal was meant to be a shot or a pass to Drew Moor who was hanging around the far post.

When the Colorado Rapids were producing positive results at the start of the season, I recall some rather cynical observers suggesting the team was relying on luck. After all, how else does a team gain five penalty kicks in their first three games?
