Reports: Chabala on the way to DC, making way for New Zealand LB

+

According to TimbersInsider and other rumors circulating around the Twittersphere, looks like Chewy is on his way to DC United for something other than a player (allocation money, intl spot, a pick in the draft, etc). With his roster spot, apparently PTFC will be signing a left back from the New Zealand national team. If true, we're getting a left back for a left back. Chewy had his defensive short-comings, but he brought a fire and passion that was definitely appreciated. I'll always remember his blast against LAG last year, and (unfortunately) the lack of support he got from his teammates after taking a brutal elbow to the head last year in the home finale against Houston. Good luck Mike (or as I liked to call you, Derek Chewlander). I'll be rooting for you in all but one game this season, and I'm sure you'll get a nice cheer on 9/29. And to our newest Timber (seems people are thinking Tommy Smith from Ipswitch Town), welcome to the Rose City. Seems like we're moving away from the nationality of our past coach towards the Kiwi persuasion of our beloved GM.
