We have been on break for a few weeks, and hope that every one of you had a safe and wonderful holiday and a start to the new year. First up, the Beautiful Blog has some Hot Stove News from the Roots and the Quakes.
The biggest Christmas present Quakes fans can get is Chris Wondolowski returning for the 2021 season. No one is sure when the schedule will start for all the leagues but the main impetus for another Wondo season is to end his career in front of the people in the stands. When asked by the team, “I was fully committed to making 2020 the final year of my career, but I’ve reconsidered and can’t wait to join my teammates one more time as we look to bring an MLS Cup back to San Jose. The fans have consistently supported me through the ups and downs and I’d always regret not properly saying goodbye.”
While we were on break, the Quakes released their 2020 season video on December 28. We haven’t seen it yet so we cannot comment. However, check it out. Like their previously released video about the 1974 season it is a must for every Quakes supporter and student of the game.
As this time, the 2021 Quakes, Roots, City, Glens, 510, and NPSL/UPSL/NSL schedules have not been announced–we are still hoping for something to be announced for May and June but for now, in our view only the Quakes remain to most likely start as scheduled but closed door for at least March through June. Stay posted for any further updates.
