I for sure can see why they drafted Archimede.  He is a pure target man with sneaky speed given his size.  I'm curious how he will do next year with a full year in USL.  I think his skill set works with what Struber at least asks his forwards to do

I want him to succeed primarily because he's Archimede of Syracuse.

Your possible squad does not include Marty Ice ...


Yes... he's been left out of the last couple of matches even with spots open on the bench. I'd like to think they told him to explore other opportunities but it may be injury related. This team rarely provides details.

Marcucci
Egbo-Tombul-Castillo-Ofori
Williams-Edelman
Harper-LaCava
Sowe-Archimede

Bench: Joseph, Cortez, Pendant, Drame, Rabiu, Sserwadda, Brummett

Rafanello out on red card late in the last match.
No Jorgy.
No Zajec?
No debut of Lamine Conte.


Dominated first 15min.
19th - Archimede with his 3rd of the year with a great first touch from Castillo. 1-0
37th - Marcucci with ANOTHER penalty kick save after Castillo makes a clumsy tackle in the box.
HT - 1-0
46th - Egbo taken down in the box. Harper to take the PK. CAMERON HARPER FIRST CAREER PRO GOAL! 2-0
56th - Harper to Egbo! Egbo's 4th of the year. 3-0. Egbo gave Harper the PK shot even though he usually takes them and was the one fouled. Harper pays him back.
59th - Sswerwadda on for Archimede. Expect lots of speed and powerful passes based on his first game.
68th - Brummett on for Harper, who exits with a goal and assist.
71st - Sswerwadda to Sowe who dribbles the breakaway into the keeper. One touch too many.
79th - Pendant in for Brummett who rolled his ankle a couple minutes ago.
90th - LaCava been off his game tonight (last few weeks). Needs to pull the trigger a bit earlier.
Final - 3-0

6W, 7D, 17L on the season. Only lost one of the last six though.

who is good enough to merit a 1st team contract? 

who is good enough to be kept on RB2 for another yr for seasoning?


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig, Celenio Eleazar, and my Mom, Resurreccion Eleazar.

 

RIP Cesar Castello, Mike Vallo, Glenn Stampiglia, Bob Paquette, and Warren Lee

Excluding academy/first team players -
Move to MLS: Edelman, maybe give LaCava the preseason with the first team
Keep: Ofori, Sswerwadda, and Archimede
Maybe: Rafanello, Zajec and Conte
Gone: Tombul, Castillo, and Knapp

First team guys to keep/cut with mostly II playing time:
Keep: Marcucci and Harper
Gone: Lewis, Egbo, Pendant, and Jorgensen

A lot of graduating former academy kids with USL experience this coming year that may fill some of those roles along with returning academy kids.

I think Tombul and Castillo get a second year
