screams Dom Oduro to me but with out the top level hair game. 

 

Obvious Bradley influence here.

 

Fast which helps us.  However, what does he have over Ettienne? 

 

Need to see the $$ to see if it makes sense. Not the youngest player by any means.

Also, if this is the big signing consider me disappointed. Not saying he can't be good.

"The 26-year-old, who was close to joining clubs in Azerbaijan and in Major League Soccer, has had a fall out with his parent club, Lech Poznań, and has thus decided to temporally end his nightmarish spell in Poland where he suffered racism and continually grew home sick.

"I will not return there. Everything was bad there. Playing time, the social life and everything. The whole package was shit," The Gambian said earlier this year."

Probably safe to assume that his career stats in the last few years have at least been somewhat affected by some real issues. Hopefully he can find some peace here. As we saw with BWP and some others, sometimes a change of scenery can really change a person's career.

Happy for him at least that he doesn't have to deal with bullshit anymore.

Bearing in mind that WhoScored isn't perfect but I find that their evaluations frequently match the "eye test", this is a promising track record: https://www.whoscore...y/Muhamed-Keita

Jeff Rueter Retweeted Kristian Dyer

#MNUFC held M. Keita's rights; the player visited the Loons during the preseason. Not a fit. His rights were sent in B. Allen loan. #RBNY

 

That was from a Minnesota writer so speculation was right in that we got Keita's rights for Allen's loan.

Bad signing for Muyl. Hope he's got finishing and 1v1 skills, not just speed.

Yea, if that's the case this a bad signing because the bench is not the problem.  The only problem with the bench is the young players don't get enough minutes.  Adding a player that will takes minutes from Davis, Etienne, Muyl, etc. is dumb.  We need someone that can push us over the top, not someone that's just going to compete for playing time.

 

Maybe he's really good and has just been in shitty situations.  Assuming Keita comes with a high recommendation from Bradley, do we trust his assessment?  Saving final judgement until he plays here, but really not the Alessandrini-type player I was hoping for.

Lots of competition for some spots if the 5-4-1 or 3-6-1 or whatever you want to call it is the preferred formation moving forward. 

 

Attempt at a depth chart (bold/italics are starters) for that formation:

LWB: Lawrence, Lade, Muyl, Adams

CB: Collin, Long, Escobar, Perrinelle, Zizzo, Lade

RWB: Murillo, Zizzo, Lade, Adams, Muyl

CDM: Feilipe, Adams, Davis, Metzger

LM/RM: Royer, Davis, Keita (for now), Etienne, Veron, Muyl

CAM: Kljestan, Keita, Felipe

ST: Wright-Philips, Veron, Etienne

 

I feel like you've got to find a way to get Adams on the pitch, but I'm not sure he's the first choice at any position with a fully healthy lineup under this formation.

I think RWB over Murillo for Adams.  And I totally agree you have to get him on the field.  

 

And also agree with each spot and where you have everyone.

Muyl sucks so this is a good signing.
