Gooch's career is an absolute mystery to me. The latest rumor is that Valencia is looking to sign him for the remainder of the season.

Why does he keep getting interest from all of these solid teams? I can easily see him getting playing time for a mid table Belgian, Dutch or Greek team. I cannot see him playing much in La Liga.

He's like the ultimate fan, he keeps getting paid to watch high quality matches from the best seat in the house.

That's cool. Valencia's CB's are pretty bad, so you never know Gooch may see some solid minutes.

Think I heard Adil Rami was at odds with the coach and has been benched for a while - don't know that Gooch will just stroll in, but good to hear he has a team looking at him.

Imagine if he somehow slips his way in, plays consistant minutes and gets back to his former form what a bonus it could be for USNT? It's great thinking about but unlikely to happen.

Like malaga it would be just to shore up depth or to give rami some competition. Either way I dont think a move to valencia would be the best for his national team prospects. Personally I think he is past his prime unless he can get back to previous form he wont be called up anytime soon especially if he isnt at a club soon getting good minutes.

I don't think hooch really cares about his international prospects at this point.

Gooch is a cool guy and was decent in his prime, but speed was always an issue. Now with additional injuries and age, he's way too slow to line up at the international level anymore. His big body and dominance in the air are positives for some teams but he doesn't have the wheels we need at that position.

Marca is now running with the Valencia rumor. It sounds like they are just regurgitating the rumor but Marca is a big name publication so it might have more meat to it.

Reports are coming out of France that Valenciennes are interested in Gooch and a move could be completed within the next few days.

Valenciennes are currently in the relegation zone of Ligue 1 at third from the bottom.

The dude def. doesn't seem to ever wanna come back to the States. Sheff Wed? Really? I wish Gooch would just come back to MLS. There are some teams here in real need of a good and experience CB.

Honestly I dont even think gooch is good enough for mls anymore. He would ride the bench here also. Ever since that injury he was never the same.

Gooch should just retire. As much as that sucks for him he just doesnt have it in him.
