Even if the Major Soccer League and the Sockers return next season, Brian Quinn will not. The Sockers' fourth all-time leading scorer announced yesterday he is close to signing a two-year deal with the U.S. National team that will include options that could allow him to play in the 1994 World Cup. He said he will not play both outdoor and indoor. Since becoming a U.S. citizen in April, Quinn has maintained his goal is to play for the U.S. team in the World Cup.

A month after being sworn in as a U.S. citizen, Sockers midfielder Brian Quinn, a native of Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been asked to try out for the U.S. national team as it prepares to play the Republic of Ireland in Boston on Friday.

The Sockers placed six players on the MSL's Western All-Star team--kind of. As expected, midfielder Brian Quinn was among those voted onto the squad, and when he left the Sockers two weeks ago to join the U.S. national team, he said he would play in the All-Star Game. But since that time the national team scheduled more exhibitions on a South American tour that begins Feb. 12 in Costa Rica. Coach Bora Milutinovic also decided to bring his regulars on that trip.

Brian Quinn, completing his first year as athletic director at Loyola Marymount University, sat back during a lunch this week and said with a sigh, "I'm tired. I'm just worn out." The excitement isn't quite over for Quinn. The school year finally ended when Loyola was knocked out of the college baseball World Series. Now Quinn is getting ready to move from Irvine to Manhattan Beach.

While the Sockers strengthened their hold on first place in the MSL with a 6-3 victory over the Baltimore Blast, their grip also became more precarious. The Sockers (13-6) now lead second-place Wichita by a full game, but they must play their remaining 21 games without midfielder Brian Quinn. What does that mean? "I don't know," said goalie Victor Nogueira. "But this will be one of the biggest tests for Ron Newman's system.

There was something new in the brew. A dash of Branko Segota, a pinch of magical footwork and a touch of spark. And suddenly the recipe appeared to be just right. The Sockers (13-15) clubbed the Baltimore Blast, 4-1, Wednesday night at the San Diego Sports Arena before 5,985, a season low. So today they take to the road with a few more answers, fewer questions, a two-game winning streak and caution in their minds. "We're what, 13 and 15?" midfielder Brian Quinn said. "We should be 17 and 11.

Life without Brian Quinn began Friday night for the Sockers at The Arena. Quinn, who is with the U.S. National Team in Dallas for a exhibition game against Costa Rica on Sunday, gives the Sockers leadership and ball control in the midfield. But the Sockers didn't have too much trouble holding on to the ball against the Storm, thanks to rookie John Kerr Jr. He scored two goals, including the winner in overtime to help the Sockers defeat the Storm, 7-6.

The hurricane that swirls around Brian Quinn these days, testing his tender sensitivities and tugging at his patience, wasn't supposed to be. When he became athletic director at Loyola Marymount University in the summer of 1985, it was a dreamy time. He was returning to his school, to the pretty campus on the hill near the ocean in Westchester. He was going back to administer a program in which he had starred as a baseball and basketball player.

The Sockers insist history will not be repeated when midfielder Brian Quinn leaves them after tonight's game against Baltimore to begin training with the U.S. national team. Still, those first six games of the 1990-91 season are far from a distant memory. The Sockers compiled a 1-5 record in that time and plummeted to the bottom of the Western Division. They did so while Quinn watched from the sideline, hobbled by a right groin strain.

The Wichita Wings attracted a sellout crowd of 9,686 who filed into the Kansas Coliseum on Saturday to see whether the Wings could solidify their position atop the MSL against the nine-time champion Sockers. They could not. The Sockers, who blew a four-goal, first-quarter lead and then watched a two-goal advantage in the third quarter disappear, claimed a shocking 9-8 overtime victory when Paul Wright converted a pass from Thompson Usiyan eight minutes into the extra period.

Ancira had little to say about what was discussed. "They received us very well and talks will continue," he said. In other news, Ancira was surprised upon his return to hear that the next move in negotiations with midfielder Brian Quinn is his.

While Oscar Ancira, Sockers managing general partner, leaves for Argentina today to chase suspended star Diego Maradona, Brian Quinn will remain here wondering why Ancira isn't chasing the player who has anchored the Sockers' midfield for the past eight years. Quinn, the Sockers' fourth all-time assist leader with 187, in August accepted a contract with the U.S. national team and quickly announced an end to his indoor soccer career.
