CHRISTOPHER MCCOLLUM - Friday, February 10, 2012
Charlie Davies's road to recovery finally appears that it's getting closer to the end as the striker has been selected into the matchday 18 for Saturday's game at Stade Rennes.

When reached for comment, Sochaux's Media Officer spoke to YA, confirming the speculation that had been swirling during the early morning hours, "I can confirm that Charlie is in the roster for this Saturday's away game against Stade Rennais FC."

Davies has not seen action for Sochaux since his near-fatal 2009 car accident, and after spending last season on loan to DC United there wasn't much expectation of him returning to France. However, DC passed on their option to buy Davies, sending him back to France where he fell back in with Sochaux's reserve team.

Sochaux currently sits in a dead heat for last place in Ligue 1, desperately seeking goals to avoid relegation. The move by Bazdarevic shows that the team is growing frustrated by the lack of offensive output, and are looking for new ways to generate scoring opportunities.

Davies made Sochaux's matchday roster in late 2010 against Bordeaux, but it was more of a symbolic gesture to show loyalty to Davies during his recovery process. Davies scored two goals in eight games for Sochaux in 2009, prior to his accident.

CD,Don't screw up this opportunity. I know the MNT would have advanced further in Africa.

@Jacob, technically what happens with the lawsuit is none of your business... There, I just made it that much easier to root for him again... And actually from a legal perspective (not just the court of Jacob's Skewed Public Opinion) the bar that served her alcohol IS liable in part because they served alcohol to someone that was obviously intoxicated, a clear violation of their own policy. She could have just as easily gotten in an accident without Charlie in the car and the family of the young lady who passed away could be filing the same lawsuit. Bet you'd support it then. Sad but true.

@Jacob- Well thats your loss of you are done with Davies. You have no idea of the details of the lawsuit and you are in no position to criticise what another person does. I for one hope Davies can become an asset again for the USMNT. The struggle at striker still continues and a fit Davies could be just what the doctor ordered for the USMNT.

After hearing about CD lawsuit against the bar that served the girl who was driving that night... I'm done with CD and I hope he never makes it back. Ugly statement I realize, but it's true. He is personally responsible for getting in a car with a drunk driver, not the company that served her the drinks. If he can't realize that...

Hey its a win for th US if he can get back into the staring squad for Sochaux and score. We can team him up with Altidore again.

Just in time for WCQ. Hopefully he'll earn enough PT in the coming months to have his name thrown back into the mix for the #9 shirt. Best of luck Chucky D!
