It’s never easy for the fans when a favorite player and long-time servant of a club moves to a new team. It’s also not a smart move to give fans painful reminders that said player has been dealt away.

Early this morning, agent Ron Waxman announced that his client, New England Revolution midfielder Shalrie Joseph, was to become Chivas USA midfielder Shalrie Joseph

 

It’s something of an unpopular move in New England. Joseph was part of the furniture in Foxborough, a 10-year veteran who had spent his entire pro career with New England and became the club’s captain and all-time leader in appearances. But as a 34-year-old Designated Player in a young team with a lot of midfield depth, Joseph became expendable on the field and was subsequently dealt to Chivas USA, where he joins Danny Califf, Alejandro Moreno, Ante Jazic, and Juan Pablo Angel as a lock to make the 2005 playoffs.

And then this happened:

 

Yes, that’s Joseph, the player who was traded, on the ticket for the game against the team to which he was traded. Which is in less than a month. That’s unfortunate.
