Colorado Rapids transfer window - featuring a whole lotta nothin'

This guy is one of the few actual transfers we've seen on the team this season, but that was preseason.

So if you hadn't noticed, apparently MLS had some sort of 'transfer window' open for the last few weeks or something like that. You won't be scolded for not noticing, as the Colorado Rapids seemed to be asleep the entire time as well. Colorado made a grand total of zero moves this season during the international transfer window - although the window for trades within Major League Soccer itself doesn't close until September - and even the rumor mill was dry.

The Rapids pulled off a few preseason moves to pick up Caleb Folan, Sanna Nyassi, Joseph Nane and Peter Vagenas (for about 20 seconds) but some bad mid-season form seemed to suggest that another piece was probably needed for the Rapids to have a chance at winning any trophies this season, especially after Conor Casey got his Achilles tendon ruptured against Seattle.

The Rapids wound up doing absolutely nothing, but that might not be a wholly bad thing; remember that the same thing essentially happened last year, when the Rapids held out until the very last second before executing two trades for Brian Mullan and Macoumba Kandji. Both of those trades highly worked out in the Rapids favor as they marched to the MLS Cup.

Either way, get used to the Rapids team you've been seeing all season long now - it's probably the one you'll be seeing all the way until 2012.
