Big ups to Tim Thomas who bought everyone beers.
I have something huge to point out. The head coach of Phoenix City F.C. has a Wikipedia page. If I learned anything at Arizona State, it’s that if you have a Wikipedia page you’re legit. David Robertson originally from Scotland played for Alberdeen F.C., Rangers and Leeds. He was also capped 3 times for the Scottish National Team.

Jose E. Garcia who is the man for AZ soccer coverage found this video of David playing….skip to 1:10
I also highly suggest you follow Jose on twitter here...and if your not reading his soccer blog, you should start….he broke the story of the USL Pro team and sat down with Tim Thomas. Read the interview here for a lot more information about the team and Tim
David is also the Boys Director at the Sereno Soccer Club. David will also remain with Sereno while he coaches PCFC (Phoenix City F.C.)
