Id like to see Fernandez get some more run, for as highly touted as he was he got little playing time last season.

split minutes between him and Valot, we know what Muyl is so idk why hed be pilfering minutes from Omir at this point

Still cant get over how there was no quality replacement
for Bradley.


Yeah it would be funny if it wasnt sad, he didnt really play last season but for a team that promised to reverse last seasons disastrous regression all they did in the offseason was sign unproven replacements for Murillo, Kemar, and Robles and brought Sims back in on loan.

Never replaced Tyler, never replaced Brad. CCJ touted as a Adams replacement but hes probably more of a Davis replacement, or someone who gets sold in the near future.

This MLS article names Sims as one of the "10 breakout candidates for the MLS is Back Tournament". I'd say that's a swing and a miss.

I would really like to hear more about Omir. He was fantastic in that CCL game but never seemed to replicate that consistently.  

It looked like he was not in peak shape and maybe the long first season got to him.

Does that mean Sims is extended past June or whoever wrote this article doesn't have a slightest clue what he is talking about?

My guess would be the latter.

Not even an attempt. Kemar forced a sale because he said that the team didnt care about winning or improving the team. And he's completely right.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

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.

A very solid majority of the writers on the league website couldn't cut it at SBnation sites, let alone professional sports journalism.

There's zero reason to read anything into Sims being on there.

Shame if this doesn't work out.  I was a big fan of what Sims brought to the table.  Played fast and had real speed.  Worked hard too.  

 

Down to 1 Designated player....

Gah, we need some speed on the wings and he was the first we had of that since Lloyd Sam.

If combined into one person.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Or Noah Okafor, or Max Wober, or Karim Adeyemi, or Erling Braut Haland.

The answer is that they're all going to Salzburg, because the return on investment for a player who goes to Salzburg is way better than a player coming to the United States.

Until MLS is actually a selling league, or Red Bull sells, we're not getting anything better than Jorgensen.
