Recapping rumors and expected news: What to watch for in the next few weeks

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Christmas, everybody. There's not really any news today, as you might expect, so I thought we could take some time to talk about what's going to be happening at the club in the next few weeks.

First up, in the recent rumors that are probably true department, we have the case of one Pecka: Wellington Paeckart, a Brazilian midfielder who might be joining us from Ft. Lauderdale Strikers. We're awaiting confirmation on that sort of thing, but we'll see how it plays out.

Next, in the rumors that are almost definitely true but are awaiting negotiations and whatnot department, we have Carlos Salcedo, who might be set for a move to Chivas. Good for him. One rumor pegged Pachuca as a rival for his contract, and if they go into a bidding war — well, that would be quite fun, wouldn't it?

We've also got a few probably-the-cases to talk about — will Aaron Maund return? Will Real Salt Lake sign another center back? What graduating seniors might end up at the team? What will Real Monarchs look like in three months time? Who will be our new defensive coach? I'm aquiver with excitement here.

I hope you're all having a lovely holiday season. Thanks for reading the blog with such tenacity, hard work, and spirit. You've been finishing well in training and — oh, never mind.
