In the past couple of days I've been notified by a couple of Stevenage FC fans through twitter and email that former Colorado Rapids gaffer Gary Smith is being heavily linked to the vacant managers position at the League One club in England, some of them asking for a simple rating of the man and how he likes his football. (The answer? Rigid as all get out!) There seems to be an article or two floating around the web as well connecting Smith and Stevenage so I'm going to assume it's a legitimate connection. The club's fans would know better than me, after all.

With a job getting back into MLS looking more unlikely every day, it makes sense that Smith would begin to attract attention from some lower tier clubs back in his homeland after a moderately impressive resume and a trophy with the Rapids. Stevenage were promoted last season from League Two and are currently putting together another impressive campaign at 6th in the League One table as of this writing.

Though he's not our manager anymore, a great many of us liked Gary Smith ether as a football tactician or just as a pretty cool dude so it's nice to know that he is getting looked at in his native home of England. Good luck to Gary on getting the job with The Boro!
