Looks like the DP replacement for Veron's spot. But he can also play CAM! Maybe Sacha gets padded down with TAM?

I like his stats and age at least. 


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 he is a DP, they don't need the Dax allocation to sign him...

Don't know shit about this guy, don't watch Romanian soccer. Young talented guy at least it seems. Could we do better? Who knows? At least we're being linked to players.

Good idea but far cry shy of Atlanta type young DP player

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

Having Tata Martino as your manager helps a lot in that regard.  Not sure that Jesse Marsch has the same cachet.

I guess if we're gonna look at it, I suppose he's a better Royer and younger? In terms of level of expectation, I mean.

Given that this is around the price range Red Bull like to spend on DPs when "spending money", for this price the pedigree is pretty good imo.  Also like the move because if Sacha stays he can comfortably slot in RW and provide an upgrade.  If Sacha goes, like the concept that between him, Keita and Royer that all of them can float between the wing and CAM positions making our attack more fluid.  

And as a young DP with 200k cap hit, its like getting an additional 280k of allocation money relative to signing an older DP. If we get him we should be able to either keep Veron with TAM, sign another DP or pay to give Tyler and/or Kemar a raise.

Yeah, rando in Romanian league is definitely what we wanna use all this allocation money on.  

 

Is this guy any good?  Who knows.  Romania's a few notches below MLS.  He'll be taking a step up in competition.  I'm underwhelmed if this is a DP signing though.

a $1.7M offer for a 15 minute/game super sub?

I feel like this has been the quote on all of our acquisitions over the past few years. More often than not we've been pleasantly surprised. Let's sign him first and give him a chance before we write him off based on his current league. I think we have a decent track record after signing guys from these smaller leagues.

Just off the top of my head: BWP, Lloyd Sam, Luke Rodgers, Royer, murillo, Robles, kemar
