Apparently, he's signed. 23 year old right mid.

i remember the little info that he was on trial. i didn't mind him at all, seems to look good for 4th div. seemed out of place. fine with the signing, but not fine with leaving the 3rd DP slot open. 

 

definite 1st team signing. if he can defend and thrive in the press, he can do well, cuz he looks competent when he's attacking the goal.

He's a guy who seems to put the ball in the net regularly from the wing.  Sounds good to me.  Like the fact that we pretty much poached him from a 2 Bundisliga trial.


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.

yeah, we weren't the only ones looking at him, turned HSV down prob cuz he'd be down the pecking order, here, he has a chance to be in the 18 if he adapts quickly.

as long as the salary isn't crazy always okay with signings like this if there is roster space.  It's like drafting a college senior, but instead they have played professionaly for sometime, which generally is a higher level. 

More interesting is based on last couple years, it apprears that the front office views the allocation money you get from the league for only having 2 DPs as good enough to not actively trying to get a 3rd DP.  Don't agree with them but they can prove themselves right in the fall

The Rza hasnt really worked out. If Ivan replaces him on the roster at a lower number, thats a win, but weve got to do something about replacing Murillo when he goes, and god help us if we lose Adams.

We still need one more attacking player. Less of an issue if Royer gets hot, but still. Zero depth up top if BWP gets injured; I like Etienne but he isnt a finisher per se.

Roster is solid, but were starting to see some holes. Academy depth only goes so far. Glad we got this guy, but still kinda nervous.

Curious why you think rza hasn't worked out ? He's shown well in most games he's played in. Solid motor and good eye in central mid.

Yea, RZA worked out as a depth option.

Rza stopped working out when we saw how much he gets paid.

I say we keep rza for the rest of the season if possible to know for sure if he has the goods to replace Adams nxt year

5 year plan

For every Rodgers there's a Ruben Bover or John Rooney. 

 

Lawrence and Murillo are different. Latin America isn't as heavily scouted as the European leagues. Guys playing in the 4th division there generally do so for a reason.
