    Because I know you all wanted to know, Johnny made his pre-season debut for Sporting KC and looked good. Almost had an assist with a nice cross. He was wearing number 7. The match was on FB and there were quite a few Rams fans in the comments. :D

    I'm pleased for him. As with Jamie Ward, we are a weaker outfit without him in our squad

    In his second MLS game JR had a goal and two assists tonight for KC. Seems like he is settling in just fine. Would have had a goal in his first game but it hit the woodwork.

    Watched it on Sky, CR.  He put in a better performance than Sweinsteiger.

    If only he was wearing white this afternoon.

    I know it kills me to see him anything other than white. I am so looking forward to seeing him in June when I head up to Portland. I am wearing my Rams kit and scarf. Would love to get a pic with him.

    I looking for my scarf and along with it I found three top kits, the blue and yellow on with Stevies Howards name on back, the white one from when we were in the Prem and the black away it from 2009. I think I am going to wear the black one when I go, and I did find my scarf.

    You never said a truer word. We're missing JR big time, as recent results have shown. He would have been perfect for yesterday's scrapfest.

    Sadly, JR wanted to go straight away rather than at the end of the season and GR couldn't persuade him to stick around.

    The latest in "Shak's JR Watch" our former winger got himself another goal yesterday. He was also named in the MLS Team of the Week.

    Right, just skinned him alive and left him there for dead. The announcer though, so horrible.

    Now being missed for his direct style, blind alleys? Yes but how many assists? What a shame his loss is now being shown for his absence in the DCFC team.

    None yet, the MLS season just started so he has plenty of time to get them. His goal was fantastic, he left Ashley Cole looking the fool when he scored.

    Johnny nailed his first hat trick for KC against Vancouver. They trounced them 6-0 tonight. Needless to say Kansas City fans are thrilled with their new signing, whilst us Derby fans are missing him.
