Fire could face Busch -- and soon

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Jon Busch, the popular goalkeeper cut loose by the Fire five days before the Major League Soccer season started, could come back to haunt his old team.
The San Jose Earthquakes are trying to sign Busch and, if they do, he could start against his old Fire teammates in their Toyota Park opener on April 10.
Busch, 33, was the MLS goalkeeper-of-the-year in 2008 and started every regular season game for the Fire the last two seasons. The club opted to go with untested rookie Andrew Dykstra this season and waived Busch.
If Busch does sign with the Earthquakes he wouldn't necessarily be their starter. Joe Cannon, a veteran, is entrenched in that spot even though he has had a series of wrist and knee problems.
