    soccerball? Thatt is so awesome. It’s clever. Thanks, Ollie!

  2.' Caleb says:

    Can you be a journeyman if you’ve only played at one club?

  3.' DaveyChicago says:

    A one-club man (12 seasons at Hannover 96, where he is deputy captain) isn’t exactly what I would call a “journeyman”.

  4. Ollie says:

    In terms of a literal journeyman, you’re right. But I meant a non-literal type of journeyman which is how the word is used mostly these days. See definition No.2:

    –noun, plural -men.
    a person who has served an apprenticeship at a trade or handicraft and is certified to work at it assisting or under another person.
    any experienced, competent but routine worker or performer.
    a person hired to do work for another, usually for a day at a time.

  5.' DaveyChicago says:

    Thanks for your quick response. I’m aware of the definition of journeyman that you’re using, and your usage is technically and linguistically correct. In sports discussions, however, I’m just more accustomed to hearing the term (perhaps mistakenly so) used to describe a player who bounces around from club to club.

    I thought Cherundolo looked more than serviceable during the World Cup; the fact that he kept undressing Milner was the primary reason Capello had to burn one of his substititions in the 31st minute.

  6. Ollie says:

    Davey – Yeah, he’s a good pro; solid, reliable.

  7. Mike says:

    what about Khedira and Baros?

  8.' Sheps says:

    Go Panthers
