Harper is domestic and younger, this team is already struggling for intl spots. Center back should be the priority

I know its what we do, but we did not see enough of him to jump to any strong conclusions.    

 

We didn't get the biggest sample size but everything about his skill set screamed pure winger. Fast on the dribble, aggressive, and a decent crosser. 

 

Keep in mind he'd likely need to be a TAM player as well. You preferably don't want to take too many risks on those although not sure we're really using all of ours now anyway.

We were so cautious, bringing most of these new guys on short term loans, while we take Harper on a three year deal.    You'd figure after getting subbed off against  NE, he would have torn it up in the Hartford game.... but no.

Sims is still unsigned. I bet he can be had for a reasonable price.

Would do that in a heartbeat. Showed more attacking prowess than 90% of our team

He even scored a goal for us. Which we were told was impossible.

Wild he is without a team.  He is no world beater but he certainly good enough to play in League 1 or 2.

It's all COVID related, just like why he was returned. With the Delta variant spreading looks like he doesn't want to be around 10 other dudes. Probably is locked down in his apartment getting Whole Food deliveries. He is very close to his family though, only a phone call away. It's a global pandemic after all, you understand.

Yeah, I was surprised Rzatkowski hasnt had a team since he left here. Sims not having a team is down right shocking. Unless he just doesnt want to play?

I really hope Thelwell approaches SIms with offer to come back next season if Sims is interested? Guy was solid during his time here and would be big help to fledgling roster.

Pure winger with tons of speed with the ball down the sideline. That doesn't really exist for Struber's preferred formations so not sure where he'd line up for us now, probably as one of the strikers

His finishing supposedly needed work when we signed him last time but worth a shot.

RED. BULL. OUT.

This is starting to bug me with Struber ... tactically rigidity is ok if the team wins or is playing well, but they aren't.
