Strikers to unveil new Jersey and sign Eduardo Coudet , plus NASL news and more.

The Strikers continue to make noise. This weekend they released their new logo. Miami Ultras President Pieter Brown made some great observations on the design. Read about it HERE.
Following the logo, yesterday the Strikers announced the signing of experienced midfielder Eduardo "Chacho" Coudet.
"Players like Coudet are very hard to find, his professional experience will be a great addition to our team. We will look to his leadership this season," said Head Coach Daryl Shore.
Coudet, 36, is a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina where he began his professional career in 1993 with Platense. In 1999, Coudet signed with one of the Argentine giants, River Plate, and would go on to win three league titles. Coudet has played professionally in Argentina, Spain, and most recently the U.S. He signed with the Philadelphia Union of Major League in the summer of 2010.

Both the new Strikers and NASL logos are sweet AND better than most MLS logos. Thankfully Traffic did not opt for the photoshop option they chose with the not so dearly departed Miami FC.

Now if we could just get the rest of the NASL to quit using photoshup, maybe the league would satisfy those of us hungry for MLS. Edmonton has a nice logo, but the rest of the NASL logos are cheezy and so minor league looking.

Agreed, this time it looks like Traffic has done things right. The logos and websites look incredible.
If only we had a big name player... they said they had 4 more players ready to sign. Hmmmm.

I really think that Eduardo Coudet is a rather good player that had a promising career and I am sure he will still be a good asset for Strikers
