Barlow has 19 goals, tied for 15th in team history with Eduardo Hurtado, Omir Fernadnez, and Kenny Cooper!

Tied for 17th in appearances with Meola
More than Henry !

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

 It's mind boggling how a player with no talent managed to play every game.  The other players literally played around the guy to avoid giving him the ball. 

 

They used to say willie mays glove is where triples go to die.  With Barlow, his feet is where OFFENSE goes to die. 

 

 And they used to complain about Fabio !

A season once again marred by offensive woes is a season where Barlow plays every possible match.

Weird coincidence, can't wait to try again next year.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Barlow played the same role in the same formation early in the season when we stunk. So apologies to the resident "Barlow is actually good at soccer" salesman, but I'm not buying it lol.

Only way I'm in 100% agreement with you here is if Troy ends up taking over a USL side instead of MLS.

I'm just saying Elf made an interesting prediction.... I am not saying Barlow is MLS level soccer player, but he does two things well that some coaches like - 1) screw with an opponent being able to play out of the back 2) play tirelessly every game and always available

 

I could see Elf's prediction happening. 

 

Metro and Barlow would both be best served with a separation, and I hope that happens this offseason. I will also say that I think the fan base piles on Barlow as an easy target, when their ire should be directed at entirely different directions - high paid USL-level yearwood, suspended injured vanzier, confused Omir and Luqs, red card reyes, and above all, an ownership group who has been treating this team like the Roanoke colony (maybe that's changing?)

This is probably the main reason I'm not too upset about Lesesne being gone.

The fan base piles on all of these targets.

I've come to accept him as 3rd ST on an MLS team.

Huge praise as I've previously been steadfast about him being a usl player.

... a big body at forward that is willing to press and can be dangerous in the air.

you are describing Barlow
