New Signs at Merlo!!!

Post by Stonehouse on Wed Aug 25, 2010 10:57 am

They are going up today... I hope aleppiek doesn't mind that I stole this photo from him! Smile



I'll post more as they go up... there will be posters of Tiffeny, Christine, Shannon, Steve Cherundolo, and Kasey Keller.

Wow! This will really add to the historical feeling in the place. I'm excited that they are doing this. I've always felt that a statue of Clive at the entrance to Merlo would be appropriate and very moving.

That's just tremendous! Very Happy

I believe there will be a statue of Clive eventually at the CCSC.

Seeing the signs in person is a great feeling -- well deserved acclaim for these star Pilots and all who played with them.

I was very impressed. I just stood there for probably 3-4 minutes just looking at them in detail. Was cool to see these players I watched at Merlo!!!

Kasey's mullet from his days at Millwall is the stuff of legend...





And another UP shot for good measure....

The banners ofpast historic players really set off the stadium if any of you get to see them in person they are pretty amazing... they are on the exterior back side of the stadium so you can see them approaching the stadium when walking in and from the road.

If opposing teams are on the turf practice field and must go through Merlo field to the locker room, all I can say is:

PSYCH!
