Osorio enjoys note-worthy first season with Red Bulls

By

Juan Carlos
Ever wonder what it is Juan Carlos Osorio is writing down in his small pad during games? You're not the only one.

"I think that's the million-dollar question the whole team is asking," Gordon Kljestan said. "I think we'll all pay a lot of money to see what is in there. But whatever it is, it works and got us where we are."

A rare look at the notes from the Real Salt Lake game shows specific instances in the first half, some scribbles and a few key phrases, including "blue-collar mentality," to tell his team at halftime.

Pardon the self-promotion here, but the following is an in-depth feature I wrote about Osorio for FiveBoroSports.com. Some of the information in the story is old hat for soccer fans, but other stuff, like Osorio renting a cramped room that overlooked the Melwood training ground so he could watch Liverpool training sessions when he was getting his masters in "Higher Educuation in Football," at John Moores University in 1998, I think, make for an interesting read.
