Colorado Rapids midfielder Carlos Alvarez has been loaned to Charlotte Independence of the United Soccer League (USL). The agreement covers the duration of the MLS and USL seasons but the Rapids have the option to recall Alvarez from their USL affiliate club at any time.

“We are excited to get Carlos integrated into the Charlotte setup as soon as possible," said Brian Crookham, Rapids Senior Director of Soccer Development. “With his return to health we feel that gaining meaningful minutes in USL will allow him to build on the productive preseason he had.”

Welcome Rapids Fans,

After two testing road trips, at New York Red Bulls and LA Galaxy, the team’s attention turns to tackling San Jose Earthquakes at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park this evening.

Incredibly, the players traveled almost 6,000 miles last week for those two games, and it was testament to their determination, desire and resolve that they emerged with results from those encounters.

We are now unbeaten in our first five games on the road, the last three of which have been at the Galaxy, the Red Bulls and FC Dallas.

The Colorado Rapids like Fridays.

Exactly four weeks ago, Pablo Mastroeni’s men clicked their season into gear with a stunning 4-0 win at Dallas. Two weeks ago on Friday, they came from behind to grab a tie against the same team (and deserved better for their performance). Even last Friday, the club announced the acquisition of Luis Solignac.

Colorado Rapids will add striker Kevin Doyle to their roster by the end of May, pending receipt of his P-1 visa and ITC, after the Irishman agreed an early settlement of his contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 31-year-old signed for the Rapids as a Designated Player in March but was originally due to arrive in July when his contract expired at the English Championship team.

As Colorado Rapids ready themselves to meet San Jose Earthquakes at home this Friday, kickoff 8:00 p.m MT (TICKETS), we take a look at some of the people who have played a part for both clubs.

Junior Agogo: joined the Rapids in 2000, following just one game at Chicago Fire. He made 32 appearances, scoring 11 goals (7 assists), before departing for San Jose in June, 2001 in a trade which brought Chris Carrieri in the other direction.

There is a tangible defiance about the Colorado Rapids right now. Bobby Burling personified it at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday when he was plucked from the bench minutes before kickoff and handed the armband. In a week of arduous travel, the veteran center back could have done without such rushed preparation as he faced up to Bradley Wright-Phillips, last season’s MLS top scorer.

Ninety minutes later, Burling was voted Man of the Match by the Rapids’ Twitterati.
