Same reason Etienne & Veron couldnt get minutes on the wing under Marsch, but Etienne gets regular minutes on the wing for Shield leading Columbus. Guys are suited for different roles in different systems.

Veron has never really proven to suit any role, for any team in the last five years.

Veron has never really proven to suit any role, for any team in the last five years.

I know this is an oversimplification, but here are some numbers to put Veron's time here in perspective (stats are for the regular season for the players time at Red Bull):

 

Veron: 1729 minutes played, 10 goals, .52 goals/90 minutes played

 

Sam: 7145 minutes played, 20 goals, .25 goals/90 minutes played

 

Grella: 5136 minutes played, 16 goals, .28 goals/90 minutes played

 

Muyl: 6279 minutes played, 11 goals, .16 goals scored/90 minutes played

 

Royer: 7246 minutes played, 36 goals, .45 goals scored/90 minutes played

 

Sam, Grella, Muyl, and Royer were the wingers that all got minutes ahead of Veron during his tenure here.  Veron's goal/90 ratio for Red Bull is better than all of them, with Royer being the only one that's close.  Obviously, the comparison isn't perfect because Veron didn't play on the wing a lot, but when you factor in a lot of his starts came either in the ineffective 4-2-2-2 or with the B Team, I thought it was interesting.

 

Not saying Veron should have started over any of these guys, as there are other facets of the game like defense that are important, but he scored a goal every other 90 minutes, that's not that bad.

Perhaps he is a square peg, but the team seemed livelier when he was on the field. And that goal in Cincy!

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

Veron's best run of form was his 8 goals from 7-5-17 through the end of the season (23 games).

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