We need offensive talent. It really just comes down to that. I see some people giving Fabio credit and I like that he works hard but there was nothing that would suggest he's going to be the answer.
CCJ is a waste up there. I've never been a big fan of him anywhere on the field but definitely not up there. He just isn't a good enough passer. Never has been.
Gutman appears to be a big improvement over Pendant and that will help big time.
Parker trade is still a massive mistake.
Carmona is super green but shows a lot of physical ability to like.
Diarra was great because he can break up plays. Him coming out definitely changed things. Especially because I HATE Valot anywhere that's not an offensive position. He offers nothing defensively. Scared we have to rely on this guy because he manages to get hurt so often too.
The biggest hole on this team going forward will be the 10 spot though. The guys we have coming will hopefully bring something to the table at those other spots, but watching this formation, those top 3 spots are everything and we don't have a guy to play the 10. I would probably put Valot to be honest. Clark is the only other maybe.
Watching Davis acting in such a leadership role during the All Access thing for the DC game makes me think that he's not coming out of the lineup a ton. Think we can pencil him in at the 6 spot. Lineup below is when when we have everyone.
Meh... If he gets injured then the value could be gone. Especially if it's serious. I'm surprised he's able to play given an arbitrator ruled that he's legitimately under contract with a different league and franchise. Makes very little sense.
If we signed that Sead guy and hadn't traded Parker, I could feel reasonably optimistic about this team. Outside of that, there are just too many unknowns and one thing I've learned over years of being a fan, so many unknowns don't work out. I'll be at every home game rooting, but I just don't see a team that can honestly contend for a title.
Then I would question why we weren't going to re-sign him. The guy is 27 at a position where you can remain good after 30. If he was a forward or a winger who's game was predicated on speed then I would understand.
It is what it is, but I disagree with the move. I'm hopeful Reyes is good for sure.
