Let's see...

His first name is Fernando..."F"

Last name is Clavijo..."C"

Put them together and you get "FC". Probably used to assist locating his since all warmpus look alike.

Ingenious.

Yup figured that out before you posted.

It's pretty common in the footballing world:

Since the coaches wear the same practice gear as the players, but don't have numbers, it lets the equipment managers keep all the clothes straight.

FWIW, they were going to use "FC" had they changed the club's name to Arsenal Colorado.

On a semi-related note, I really like the trend towards classic soccer names in MLS. Toronto FC, DC United (which also did something I love by using DC instead of Washington), CD Chivas USA, FC Dallas and Real Salt Lake. I wouldv'e loved to have seen them become Arsenal Colorado FC.

Is it me or on Clavijo's(Rapids Head Coach) warmup it says "FC" below the Adidas logo? Didn't know they were going to use "FC" in their name.

out of curiosity, but what jersey is that Toyota one?

I'm pretty certain it's Valencia CF out of Spain.

valencia's shirt it is. and gothamite's right on the money with his explanation about the coache's initials. By the way, gothamite, way to explain the situation with a pic of our fearless leader mr. wenger. too bad he's not wearing his magic hat in that photo :P

Thank you - always willing to oblige. Although I'm thinking the magic hat is in the shop this month (not bad for a rebuilding year, but still not what I'm used to seeing from the lads).

even better question: what the deuce is Fernando Morientes doing anywhere *near* Colorado? He can't be that washed up yet...

Valencia's kit is one of my faves too, especially this year's. if I had to name a Spanish team to support, I think it'd have to be them.

Yes, I believe the Rapids site has a story about them beating Valencia's youth team.

I'm with Harper on the Valencia kit comment. I'm an Arsenal supporter, but I'm really liking both Valencia's kits this year -- i love the bat crest -- and the way the team plays. ON a side note, when I was in Italy a few years ago, a street vendor was selling knock-off kits for $10 a pop. I bought two and he threw a third one in for free -- a Valencia shirt for a retired player named Carboni.

On another side note, when is an MLS club other than RSL going to show their new kits for the season? The first game is coming up in the first week of April.

Colorado is in Spain training at the Valencia facilities....and yes they played the Valencia youth team...but next week they are playing Valencia CF in a friendly and I guess the game is going to be televised on FSC but i'm not sure.

They were also training at the Arensal facilities last week in England and played two friendlies against Millwall of League 1 and Barnett of League 2....apparently Arsene Wenger watched both games closely.

Helps to check the online store.

Dynamo have been wearing theirs throughout the CONCACAF Champions Cup.

Yes, I've checked the online store. But thanks for pointing out the obvious, anyway.

But you would notice by looking at the online store that it also identifies the 2007 LA Galaxy jerseys as being the same yellow/green strips they wore last year -- despite all of the public pronouncements that they will be changing colors.

Also, RSL has shown they will be wearing strips with their shirt-sponsor, Xango. Yet, the online store shows the same kits they wore last year.

Again, thanks for your condescending reply. But I've always assumed the kits you showed and the kits on the MLS store Web site are merely placeholders until the new kits -- with shirt sponsors -- are unveiled.
