Fan Favorite Jarryd Goldberg returns to the midfield. One of Miami FC's standout players. Jarryd was born November 13, 1985 in Livingston, New Jersey. Goldberg attended Ridge High School in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, and played college soccer at Boston College and Boston University.

JP is a Guyanese international soccer player who plays as a defender. Rodrigues has played professionally for the Nashville Metros and Miami FC, and he made his international debut in 2006. JP is currently playing with the Milwaukee Wave

Miami FC has announced that there will be other additions to the roster this week among other interesting information.

Miami Ultra President Pieter Brown wrote a great post called "Miami FC Good and Bad", it's about the current criticisms Miami FC parent company Traffic Sports is receiving by fans. Be sure to check it out. It all stems from the announcement of an Academy and fields proposed by Traffic in Ft Lauderdale. Many soccer fans would like MLS to return to South Florida and see this move by Traffic as a hindrance to their dreams. My recent blog post on this same subject see it HERE shed over 50 comments. My opinion is that this move is a positive thing for Soccer in South Florida. MLS is not going to come any time soon. We need to come to terms with that and support Traffic's willingness to commit. An Academy means we will see our future players develop right here in our hometown. It's time for true Soccer Fans to get behind this and join supporters groups, such as the Ultras.

Miami Soccer Fan has also re-started their Spanish Language site. Be Sure to check it out! I will be translating for the site but if you are interested in contributing please contact Pieter Brown at the site.

Vamos Miami!
