Has that Kenny Cooper vibe to me.

No speed, head down with the ball, not overly good at much, but almost always get in the right spot and scores in bunches.

Looks more like Wolyniec to me than Cooper.

I think the other thing that hurts Allen is that he seems to be a douche.  Not sure his own teammates even like him.

I'm hearing that Brandon Allen's loan deal to #MNUFC is complete, with purchase option at end of season. Will report in next few days. #RBNY

Purchase option is surprising but good for him.  Doesn't really fit our style of play.  Hope he does well

Dislike the purchase option, hope he does well. Deserved at least a chance.

Backups don't get minutes with Jesse. Hopefully Allen will get it done in Minnesota.

The satisfaction of doing the right thing for Allen?

Yea, at least they got Zizzo last time for Meara's loan

They got Meara for the season and got rid of Zizzo for good. Sounds like they got the better end of both parts.

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.

Don't we get the cap space and a roster spot?

Yeah, definitely get the cap space if Allen is in our top X amount of players who count against the cap.

 

That said, I think it's really a trial.  If it works out and they want Allen, we'll get something in return to close the deal. 

 

 

OR, we had too many strikers between Douglas and Allen and wanted them both to get minutes somewhere.

Allen started and played 71 minutes in Minnesotas friendly vs. Atlas.

Has already seen more time there than here.

Minnesota down 4-0 and Allen was the lone attacking option on the bench. Heath didn't use him.

Still no MLS minutes this year.
